Welcome to My Life


My name is Nina. 25 Years old. NY->OK. Future USMC wife to the most incredible man in the world, Russell. Wedding date 5.24.15! Mama to Tank, our Olde English Bulldogge. Natural Bikini Athlete. I decided to start a blog as a way for family and friends to follow our journey and as a way to answer the health and fitness questions I frequently get.

Currently we live in Lawton, OK. Russell is a 1st Lt. going to Artillery School in Fort Sill until mid March ( Cant wait!!!! )  As I often tell people, OK is OK.  It is definitely not as bad as I anticipated. Its also not that exciting. Besides the occasional trip to Mt Scott or the animal refuge…not a whole lot to do.

Russell is stationed in Camp Pendleton, CA and we plan on living in San Clemente in March. We applied for a house in the military housing community of San Mateo Point. Not going to lie, the thought of having our own house overwhelmed me just a bit at first ( Read: A LOT.) The fear of “growing up” terrified me until i realized, I’ve already done it. I am grown. Im 25 years old, have two degrees, and will be married at the end of May. Grown. Its already done and I’m handling it just fine. I will keep everyone updated on the status of our housing. We are currently 11th on the waiting list for a house in this community.

Moving here was one of my best decisions yet. Being with my little family every single day is the greatest thing. I miss NY and family and friends but these two boys are my whole world and I am so fortunate for the opportunity to be together, who knows what the future may bring in this crazy military life.
