Tomorrow I turn 27….WHAT?! My 20s have felt so insanely fast while also being some of the longest (and occasionally hardest) years of my life. I wouldn’t change a thing.
This year I’m doing it differently. The famous “C” aka my boyfriend aka my roomie aka that sweet arm candy I’ve been totting around for 5 years is dropping in to add his two cents for the occasion. He asked me what I wanted for my birthday and all I could really think of was him spreading his awesome words of wisdom to you guys. Because behind every blogger is her Instagram husband who patiently takes 5000 pictures, nods his head when you’re stressing about deadlines and in my case, has been the absolute, most-amazing support system a girl could ask for. He’s wise beyond his years and even though I’m biased, is the most incredible person I know.
So pay attention! C is hijacking the blog for the day. Enjoy!

Coming at you live from THM’s empire (aka our apartment aka castle danger aka the animal house) and this post is a special one.
Not only is Saturday Davida’s birthday, and her champagne birthday nonetheless (needless to say champagne shall be had) but perhaps even more monumental and possibly equally as important, this is also the first time that I’ve ever dropped in to say hello to all you lovely people!
Talk about long overdue… Some of you have literally tracked Davida’s journey and my life over years and we’ve never even been digi-introduced! Allow me… (stands up and does a little wave)… Hi, I’m Curtis – some call me Curt, you can call me C. And in this realm, I’m the man behind the woman behind the blog.
And what a ride it has been! Time to take a little walk down memory lane…

I’ve oftentimes struggled to define the blog within the healthy living sphere. I’m not a fitness blog or a running blog. I don’t exclusively share healthy recipes or the latest nutrition craze. I chat about healthy living. Not about living for health. But perhaps more importantly, I chat about my healthy life.
I remember my pre-blogging days when my blog reader was full of 100+ healthy living blogs that I used to inspire and motivate me. I did every squat challenge and diet clean-up. Besides my inability to follow recipes, I was every blogger’s dream reader. But with every new piece of advice and life-changing tip, I failed to account for the fact that as much as I considered these bloggers my friends, they didn’t know the first thing about me. I was following what they decided was healthy.
This has been a driving factor since the start of The Healthy Maven. I will never tell you how to live your life. I will never tell you to go vegan, only do HIIT workouts and drink bone broth every day. I share my life in the hopes that it will inspire you to try out something new in yours. If it fits, awesome. If not, onto the next thing!
