About the Blonde

Hi there friends! Thanks for dropping by.


My name is Mackenzie and I’m a twenty-something from the good old Pacific Northwest. I grew up in a really small town in Eastern Washington and moved to the big city of Seattle when I was offered a position on the Seattle U swim team. Sports have always been a huge part of my life, so fitness is naturally part of who I am.

My journey with healthy living hasn’t always been easy. I struggled for a few years with an eating disorder that took control of my life throughout college, causing me to have to step away from the pool before the start of my senior year. Throughout my journey to recovery, I learned a lot about myself and the importance of balancing “healthy” with “fun and yummy”.

I am so incredibly blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life, so you’ll definitely be hearing about them 🙂

My boyfriend, Bart, is my absolute best friend. We met while swimming for Seattle U and have been inseparable ever since.


My mom, dad, and younger brother also play a huge role in my life. We’ve always been a very close-knit family, so although they live a few hours a way, I try to visit them as much as I can and chat with them daily.


I decided to start this blog to document my adventures in this new, grown-up life I’m leading all the while maintaining a balanced, healthy lifestyle. Enjoy!
