Angela’s Balanced Life

Hi! I’m Angela, an every day gal on a fitness journey and striving to be the best person I can be! Feel free to contact me at angela(at)angelasbalancedlife.com with any ideas, questions, and PR inquiries. Angela | Angela's Balanced Life

I’ve been on a fitness journey since 2012, and I’m still learning about my goals and strengths. Since I began my fitness journey, it’s truly become a passion and love in my life, and I want to share that with others. I was never athletic growing up and when I started on my journey I really wasn’t looking to lose weight. I learned to lift using a program similar to Strong Lifts 5×5, and fell in love with weight training. I’ve gained strength and confidence throughout my fitness journey, and now I’m focusing on physique goals and while having balanced nutrition. To have balanced nutrition I follow IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros) or Flexible Dieting and it’s been a game changer in my fitness journey. Most of the recipes that I share are macro-friendly and usually meal prep friendly.

I was born and raised in Minnesota, and still reside here despite our very cold winters. Minnesota’s beautiful summer and fall months make up for the winter weather, and all of my family is here which makes it worth it. I live with my boyfriend and we love to travel as much as our schedule allows. On my list of places I’ve traveled to are San Francisco, Vancouver, Iceland, Ireland, Los AngelesDetroit, Chicago, Colorado, Toronto and many other road trips to nearby Minnesota cities. Some future destinations include Australia, New Zealand, the Grand Canyon, Maine, Seattle, Spain, Greece, Japan and more!

I hope you’ll stick around on my blog – be inspired by a fitness routine, find a meal prep recipe, travel to a new place. Find what you want in life and what makes you happy and begin working towards it!
