Thank you for stopping by! To start off 2014 right I have reinvented the purpose of my little space in the blog world. It is a work in progress so please hang in there with me!
First and foremost, the most important part of my life. That little guy to the right of me in that picture! Tyler, he’s my 5 (almost 6) year old son. He is the inspiration for my graphic design business and for my continual effort to live a healthy lifestyle. I talk about him a lot!
This blog has a LOT of content about healthy eating and fitness. A little bit about my life and virtually none about my second passion, design. I finally decided that it is perfectly okay to include all aspects in my life into one blog space. That is why I have changed the name to Life of Kate. Really this blog is now going to cover ALL parts of my life, not just vegan and fitness content. I am really excited.
I am a designer.
For my “real job” aka career I do marketing for a commercial real estate company. I love it! At home I do more creative design work. I design pieces personal occasions, mostly weddings and baby showers. I also design brands and logos for small businesses. It is all really new and SUPER exciting. More about that on the kmd designs page.
I am a foodie.
I love to eat. I love to create random recipes and meals as well. I have been a huge slacker about creating anything new lately but I look forward to getting back into it! All of my recipes from 2011 – 2013 are 100% vegan. 2014 going forward there will be a little bit of fish, egg, and dairy added into the recipes. As I have evolved as a person I have started to follow more of a flexible diet. I am dropping the vegan label and just eating how I feel is best for me. It is really quite liberating! Don’t worry, all of my recipes will still be super healthy and I will include substitutions for my followers that are vegans! You can find all of my recipes organized on the recipes page.
I am really into fitness.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is extremely important to me. I am at the gym or doing an at home workout 4-5 days a week. On the days that I don’t get a full workout in I am still pretty active. I love sharing workouts that work for me. Look for more to come! You can find all of my workouts on the fitness fun page.
I LOVE hearing from people!
I would love to hear from you if you have a design need or if you want to talk about changing your lifestyle. I am NOT a certified dietician or anything of the kind but I love talking to people about making different choices. Sometimes it just helps to talk to others. Feel free to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime. You can also find me on my Life of Kate Facebook page OR my kmd designs Facebook page.
