About

Hi, I’m Carolyn. Thanks for checking out my blog!  

I always find myself getting flustered when presented with a ‘tell me about yourself,’ but I will give it a shot.

As a newbie to the southwest, I love spending time outside and exploring my surroundings. I moved to Tucson in July 2010 (from Minnesota) after falling in love with the warm sunshine and abundance of cactus on a weekend trip to Phoenix. 

My work days are fairly entertaining as I spend my days inside a double-wide trailer working closely with a group of 10 guys on a construction site. Another 150+ guys work just outside that trailer. Just imagine being the only female with that many men. I hear a lot….

My passions include: experimenting with new-to-me foods, cycling, reading, seeing movies, taking fitness classes, and throwing around heavy weights. I am currently training for my first duathlon and hoping a passion for running will form in the process.

  1. Hi! So nice to “meet” you!! I love Tucson and all of your pictures make me miss it! I lived there about 4 years ago, but now I guess I’m just a quick trip away 🙂

      Hi Mariel! I am so excited you found my blog! I can’t wait to check out your blog. Phoenix bloggers are AMAZING – I just met a few for brunch on Saturday.

        Yay! I’m so excited that there are Phoenix blogger meet ups! I was about to swear that all healthy living bloggers live in North Carolina (have you ever noticed how many are from there?) Anyway, love that there is a little network here in Phoenix I can hopefully be a part of! 🙂

        Completely agree that a lot of healthy living bloggers are connected to North Carolina. I feel like the majority are on that coast! I have been getting up to Phoenix about once a month lately (planning to move up early next year) so I will keep you posted of meet ups I hear about!

  3. Hey there! I just found you from Carrots n Cake 😀 I’m originally from Indiana but I live in Tucson now too! I’m an Air Force chica so I also work with a ton of dudes too and often am the only one around. It’s fine though. It just makes me cherish girl time that much more. Looking forward to watching your training 🙂
