"Get busy living, or get busy dying."
The Shawshank Redemption

Hello, blogosphere! My name is Elisabeth, but I am known to my friends and family as Bizzy. I am obsessed with sharks, cats (especially my two furballs Eddie & Cooley, who I'm sure you'll be hearing more about soon), and wordplay (it should come as no surprise that the title of this blog is a pun).

The past few years of my life have been awesome. I've been living it up with my husband in the District (what we DC residents are fond of calling our dear city), going out with amazing friends, eating wonderful food, and drinking delicious beers with minimal stress, worry, or regard for the long-term. As fun as this life has been, it doesn't allow much room for healthy development of the mind, body, and soul. I was too lazy to stay fit, too impulsive to focus on eating the right things, and too caught up in the everyday to develop my spirituality.

So now, it's time for a change.

But how does one balance a fun, living-life-to-the-fullest existence with a healthy one? Can the two go hand in hand? That is what I'm hoping to find out.

I hope that you will join me on this journey, and that it might even help you in your own journey to a healthier you. I will be posting items that I find helpful along the way - workout techniques, healthy recipes, and food for thought, just to name a few. I would love any recommendations and feedback from you!

Let's work together to find the perfect balance between a life lived to the fullest and a healthy one. I am certain it exists. Let's discover it together. Let's get Bizzy living.
