Welcome to Fitscally Responsible!

I’m baaaaaack!!!!!

It’s been about seven months.  I’m sure you’ve all missed me.  I’ve definitely missed writing.

First, let me say this will be my last post on Fitscally Responsible. Please check out (and follow) my new blog, anna christina: welcome to my world. It will be a more general blog.

What have I been doing the past seven months?

  • Traveling for work a lot.  I took a promotion that took over my personal life for a few months (but I love my job, so it wasn’t so bad).
  • Tough Mudder… it. was. awesome.
  • I turned 30!
  • I got married!!!!!!!!!!!  Here are two pictures:



I have opted to create a new blog because I think it better reflects my personality. I love fitness and financial responsibility, but I also have a wide variety of interests beyond those two topics.  I think I tried too hard to come up with something that would be catchy, rather than something that truly reflects who I am.

I hope you’ll follow me on my new blog so we can stay in touch!



My name is Anna and I’m a Supply Chain Manager by day (i.e., stealth Excel Ninja), research junkie by night.  Based on my magazine and book collection, I would say my passions in life are: healthy eating (or at least owning books about healthy eating), cooking, working out, running (yes, it gets its own category), personal finance, saving time, a lot of chick literature, and the occasional sophisticated book that might make a fancy “Top Books” list.

I live in Minneapolis, MN with my boyfriend, Matt, and our pets.  We live near a few lakes and a terrific trail system so we spend a lot of time outdoors when it isn’t freezing cold.  I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Operations Management from the University of St. Thomas and my Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Minnesota – Carlson School of Management. 

Now that we have the introduction aside, let me tell you why I am blogging.  In addition to being a research junkie, as my boyfriend would say, I am a “sharer”.  Not only do I like to research my passions, I like to share what I’ve learned and my opinion about it.  I may not follow the advice 100% of the time (my willpower and I don’t always agree), but I like to try anyway.

p.s., this is me in my pre-first marathon glory (October 2011):

ready to run 26.2 miles!
