Shelby is a mother of two living in the burbs who works as a Fitness Nutrition and Weight Loss specialist (NASM) and spends her free time trying to get over her break up with Carbs, ( I miss you, Pizza joe.

She blogs at and covers topics such as positive body image, PCOS, eating disorder recovery, and humor. Really, just a woman trying to get her sh*t together.
