About Me

Hi!  Welcome to Life After Morning Coffee!

My name is Missy and I'm 25 years old living in Wisconsin with my husband, Terry, and our two chihuahua rescue pups, Parker and Carmelita!

I have a strong love for my dogs (you will hear a lot about them on the blog) and a hot cup of coffee.  Any conversations or actions that happen prior to my morning coffee are null, which is why the day shouldn't start until after that cup is brewed!

I ran my first race on Thanksgiving Day in 2011 (the Eau Claire Turkey Trot) and have been forever changed.  Since that day, I have lost almost 50 pounds and plan to continue!  I have also fallen in love with strength training, Zumba, yoga, rollerblading, and biking.

I have struggled my entire life with weight and never thought it was possible to be where I am at today.  I used to be obsessed with my goal weight and I have given that goal up because I would rather focus on feeling healthy.  I still struggle each and every day to find that balance between healthy living and not-so-healthy indulgences.  I want this blog to be a place where I can openly write about my good days and my bad days, because everyone has them.  Healthy living is not only a lifestyle, but a lifelong journey.  It is not a diet.

I hope you enjoy reading Life After Morning Coffee!  Feel free to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram!

  1. You are such an inspiration! And I totally agree with you. Everyone cheats once in a while and you shouldn't feel guilty after eating those indulgences. Everything in moderation is the key :) Your chihuahuas are adorable by the way!
