Dear FitGirl,

“There has never been and never will be another you. You have a purpose – a very special gift that only you can bring to the world.” – Marie Forleo

I love that quote. There is so much truth to it. There is only one you and I want to help you grow into this truth. The FitGirl blog is for all girls and their parents, and much of the content will be created to make a positive and safe place for you high school girls. To help you focus on yourself in a loving way, find clarity and connect you with your purpose.

Here we’ll discuss topics like:


  • Creating habits to help you feel like your best self
  • Navigating relationships
  • Functional nutrition and overall wellness
  • Getting in touch with the body and its needs
  • Nurturing feelings of belonging while building your tribe of besties
  • Using social media and technology to design a life you love

Let me introduce myself


blogger carlynMy name is Carlyn. I have 5 sisters (2 older, 3 younger) and I grew up in Michigan before my family moved to Ohio when I was 13. After I graduated college I moved to Chicago where I lived for 10 years before moving here to Omaha. And I have absolutely fallen in love with this city 🙂

For work, I am a User Experience Designer. I design digital solutions for websites and mobile applications. In this role I work with development teams to make sure the final product is built in a way that is easy for people to use and understand. Sometimes I can’t believe I get paid to do what I do! It’s challenging in the fun ways and keeps me on my toes.

In my free time, I enjoy writing and exploring creative outlets. My little dog Henry is a great furry companion and he makes me smile every day! I’m not a big traveler, but I do like to go on adventures and discover new places. The most exotic have included traveling to Egypt, France, and Germany.

I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to connect with you here. I want to spark ideas that help you connect with your true self and find what fills you with joy. This is an exciting time and I am looking forward to hearing from you girls and being inspired by your unique gifts.

Thanks for stopping by the blog and please check back each week to see new posts!
