Liz's Healthy Life

Liz's Healthy Life

I'm Liz, a 26 year old mom and wife. I live with my husband and 2 year old in central Indiana, even though my heart will always be in my hometown, Pittsburgh.

I work part time and attempt to be a stay at home super mom & wife with the rest of my time. I'm also a Jesus lover, a coffee addict, and an avid reader.
(I write about the books I read here).

I'm working towards a healthier, more balanced life and, yes, still trying to lose those pregnancy pounds.

I also love to write in my free time (I know right, what free time?), and I'm a big fan of all Pittsburgh sports, especially the Steelers (and yes, even the Pirates).

Sooo hi.  This is me trying to get back to healthy eating and working out and trying to get back to blogging.  

This is my second week of tracking calories again on my fitness pal, and I’m down 1.5 pounds!  (Be my friend!  My username is lizflinn.)

Also, I really liked my outfit today.  I bought that shirt on Twice waay on the cheaps and it still had the Banana Republic tags on it!  (Shameless plug because everybody does it: if you want to check out Twice (it’s awesome!), let me know, and I can give you my referral link, which I believe comes with $20 off for you!)

Then, I worked out after work even though I didn’t want to.  I’m on workout 3 of week 1 of couch to 5k (for the umpteenth time), and it’s going well so far.  

Aaand I’m terrible at taking selfies.  

Now I’m home, showered, redressed, and starving.  Heading out to dinner with my hubbs on a random Tuesday night!  


JK Rowling was fired from a secretary job because she spent too much time daydreaming and secretly writing about a teenage wizard while she was at work.

I’ve been feeling a bit down about my administrative assistant job lately (stuck, like I’m not getting anywhere) and wanting to pursue writing, but also feeling like I’m not quite good enough there to succeed.  I know I won’t ever produce anything near the epic proportions of Harry Potter, and I don’t know if this is true about J.K. Rowling, but it’s still nice to imagine that one of my favorite authors kind of started in a place that I’m in right now.
