Hi, I’m Teri, the founder, blogger, and writer behind A Foodie Stays Fit! Thanks for visiting my blog! Let’s get to know each other, shall we?
I’d love to hear from you too, so leave a comment and say hi! Now onto the Q&A!
Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Utah, but now live in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where I’ve been for 10+ years. Winston-Salem is a great city and I’m so grateful for friends who have become family away from family.
I have 5 older brothers and 17 nieces and nephews! Yes, I’m the only girl. And the youngest. Seriously.
Are you married?
We didn’t meet until our 30s, and there is something really wonderful about falling in love at this point in my life. I’m incredibly grateful for him, and I never imagined I could be this happy. Here’s how we met.
What’s your workout routine?
I LOVE RUNNING. I run anywhere from 30-65 miles a week and lift 1-3x a week. I’ve been running for over 18 years (yowza!). I’ve run four marathons (including the Boston marathon two times!), three 180-mile relay races, multiple half marathons and 5K-10Ks.
My first marathon took just over 4 hours and my current PR is 3 hours 17 minutes. My half marathon PR is 1:31, but my first half marathon was over 2 hours! You CAN improve your running speed if you work at it!
I’m also a certified group fitness and Les Mills RPM instructor, but haven’t taught in about 8 years and don’t really plan to again.
What shoes do you run in?
You can see all my running gear here!
Your skin is perfect. What do you use?
This is one of the most flattering questions I get and probably the most-asked question. I used to have horrible skin (terrible acne), well into my late 20s. I finally found something that works well and is a safer option since it’s not full of scary chemicals. You can see my entire skin routine and make-up routine here.
Do you have any kids?
Yes, I have a 10-year-old boxer named Maizey. She is my dog child. I’m slightly obsessed with her, and she isn’t spoiled at all.
Is blogging your full-time job?
Nope! I’ve worked in corporate America in financial services for over 12 years. I’m currently at a large national bank doing social media marketing. I really like my job and feel lucky to have a gig I enjoy.
Where did you get xyz from?
There are a few places to shop what I post:
- You can shop all my Instagram photos on this page.
- Follow me on the LikeToKnow.It app. It’s free and you’ll get shopping details emailed to you and saved in the app when you like one of my fashion posts on Instagram.

I have to pay for WordPress updates, hosting & domain fees, and other expenses to keep this site functioning and hacker-free.
