About Me

Tweak(ed): Improved by making fine adjustments to it.

riley trails appleWhen I started Tweaked Foodie, it was just an Instagram account to share my fitness journey and the way I’ve changed my thoughts about food. But so much more has changed about me over the years that I’ve tweaked not only my food habits, I’ve tweaked my life. I’ve always struggled with my weight, and I’ve tried every diet under the sun. I’ve lost the weight. I’ve gained the weight. I’ve never been slim, and maybe I never will be. But through all of these years of ups and downs, I’ve found myself. I’ve tweaked myself. I’ve become the best me. And this is the me that I want to share, not just my love for food, but my love for travel, my love for helping people, my love for life. That love hasn’t always been there, it’s taken me years to get to this place.

So this is me and my tweaked life….

I’m 37 years old, and I currently live in my home state of Michigan. I grew up here but lived in Chicago for 10 years after college, which is where I found my love for great food. In 2014, I decided I wanted to be closer to my family and moved back to Michigan. I work for a great company and am very fortunate to be able to work from home, so my job moved with me. Since moving back, I also married a fabulous fellow and live with him and his two children (14-year-old boy and 16-year-old girl) who you might hear me mention from time to time 🙂

I sincerely hope you enjoy!
