It’s Brittany, bitch.
First off, I’m really not super qualified for this.
I graduated from a state college a few years back with a bachelors degree in Merchandising, Apparel and Textiles. Weird, I know. Judge as you will, but I did it without completely destroying my liver. And I did it with a job lined up after graduation.
After riding on the struggle bus for what felt like an eternity, I learned a lot of tricks and eventually, I accepted a position working in marketing.
You could say I’ve become pretty good at giving people great advice that they choose to ignore anyway.
But hey, they pay me, and I need it to afford a better life for my pooch, Bailey, who is the sweetest pupper in the world.
(Try to fight me on this, I dare you.)
Way too often, I get ready to search for something online, and I’m bombarded by all these fancy dog moms or human moms or just humans (why it’s never just dogs, I’ll never know) with questions or snarky messages. Sorry, I don’t agree that just a tea alone can detox your entire body and make you feel like a Greek Goddess again. I didn’t grow up with Laura Ingalls Wilder.
They also tell me that there actually a way to drop those 10 lbs in a week. — Spoiler alert, it’s a lie. Just do it the right way or die trying like the rest of us.
I dream of a world where I can search for a recipe, workout plan, or anything really with instructions that I can understand and relate to. Like, where does the recipe say I can substitute fancy schmancy cheeses for good ol’ Kroger brand? Or in the workout plan, does it say how long I have to exercise to burn off that cheat day meal? (Who are we kidding, at this point, it’s more of a cheat month.)
That’s where I come in.
We all know it’s no easy feat– being healthy. And no one is perfect, despite what their Instagram profiles may portray.

I’ve been learning to handle this #healthyliving thing bit by bit, and I’m here to shed some light on how you can, too. As long as we’re still kickin’, we’re making progress, buddy.
I started this blog to show others that the struggle bus is a stinky, but entertaining ride. And eventually, you’ll still get to the same destination, except with some really funny stories along the way.
Come away with me on the magic struggle bus! Let’s learn this shit together.

I will only send you valuable information, so don’t worry about your inbox getting crazy stuffed. I understand that struggle on a personal level.
