About Kelly

Hello everyone! Kelly here — originally from Kelly Cooks…and Other Amazing Feats / Kelly B Well

I started my cooking blog as a hobby after my wedding in November 2007, and my fitness blog in January of 2010 because I didn’t feel that stuff had a place on my food blog.

Que this site – Kelly Be Well – which is a combined blog for both my previous hobbies (food/fitness) but it also gives me some room to grow, show you pictures of my cute puppy, talk about books I’ve read, trips I take, etc. It’s just a much more comprehensive system!

So! That all being said….here’s some facts:

  • My name is Kelly (duh)
  • I live in Pennsylvania, in a moderately-sized town that is much larger than the farm area I grew up in
  • I am 29
  • I’m married to Dave (who is more commonly refered to as DH – Dear Husband – on this blog)
  • I showed horses (Arabians) competitively (SaddleSeat, Equitation, Western, Hunter Pleasure, and Costume) for 10 years when I was young, and miss having horses every day.
  • I started exercising in October 2006 in preparation for my wedding in November 2007 and kept at it.
  • When I started going to the gym, I was lethargic, agitated (from agoraphobia and other anxiety issues), and 200 pounds
  • Now would be a good time to mention I’m 5’6″  — so yeah, I was heavy
  • As of January 2010, I am still maintaining a 4-5 day a week gym habit, along with yoga at home and walking the dog (daily…or as weather permits now that it’s winter)
  • I’m still 5’6″ — and now I’m 160 pounds (technically still overweight, but I’m much happier in my skin)
  • I still struggle with my anxiety – there are good days and bad days, good months and bad months
  • I love to run, but chronic piriformis syndrome pain is keeping me from truly pursuing it
  • I lift weights (heavy), do yoga, use a variety of cardio mechanisms (treadmills, elliptical, stair master, stationary bike, regular bike)
  • I love to read, and if I’m sitting down I generally have my nose buried in a book or a blog
  • I also love to cook and bake….but if pushed, I’d say I prefer baking to cooking.

So! That’s me in a nutshell. If you have questions, feel free to ask!

  • I just found your blog and had to tell you that I almost named my blog “Kara B well” but changed my mind! Too funny! It’s a great name!

    this is weird but I remember you before you changed your name and I do not remember a 200 pound person at all. You know what I remember? I remember that you were really smart and very nice.
