Hello! My name is Angela. I’m a 30-something scientist, wife, runner, blogger, and general health nut! Even though I’m not a fitness professional, I’ve always had a place in my life for health and fitness. It really became a passion a few years ago when I started blogging to help me lose weight and realized how much I loved sharing my story with people.
I eventually branched off from blogging on a weight-loss-specific social website to create The Chicken Scoop – a place where I could blog about anything I wanted. At the time, my husband and I were working on creating a small farm at my parents’ house- chickens and all – hence the name of the blog! The chickens are gone now but we are always dabbling in the garden in an attempt to grow anything – edible or not!
You will still see that I talk mostly about health and fitness topics, especially weight loss. I try to take a natural, healthy route when it comes to losing weight and achieving health – you won’t see crash diets in these parts of the internet though I may restrict certain foods for health reasons.
Some other things you will hear me talk about are running, products I like, books I’m reading, local restaurants I enjoy, travel, and whatever else I feel like writing about. There are no limits to my blog. It is simply here for me to share my life!
