About Me


Hi! I’m Betsy, thanks so much for stopping by my blog. The Everyday Warrior is a healthy living lifestyle blog that focuses on fitness, fashion, family and travel. I believe that we are all warriors of our own lives and that we become empowered when we allow ourselves to follow our own arrow, wherever it may go.

Follow Your Arrow

I am a mother to one child. A boy who is 8, who I refer to as B on this blog. He is very opinionated, stubborn and demanding. But he is also very loving, caring and inquisitive. I enjoy seeing the world through his eyes!

I am also a soon to be step-mom to two children. Both boys. One who is 14 and one who is 12.

I live in the Metro Detroit area with my fiancé Chris (we are getting married in April!!!) and our kids. Merging our two families together is still a work in progress but we are trying to enjoy the ride.

Speaking of the fiance, he is also a blogger. You can follow along with his antics on his geeky blog The Nerf Herder.

I have been a runner on and off since high school and I became more serious about it at the end of 2009. I have completed many different types and lengths of races. Everything from 5ks to half marathons and even obstacle course races.

Obstacle course races and trail races are my favorite types of races! Getting out and connecting with nature makes me feel more connected to myself while getting muddy and conquering obstacles lets my badassery out!


Despite my love for mud and nature, I am a bit of a girly girl. I love fashion and clothes and getting all dressed up.

I also love to travel. It’s something that Chris and I have been doing since almost the very beginning of our relationship. We went on our first trip together at the six month mark. Our relationship and our travel adventures have been going strong ever since!

Want to know some other random factoids about me? I am a huge country music fan and one of Garth Brooks biggest fans. I also can not get through the day without at least two pieces of chocolate. (Just another reason why I run and workout!)

I would love to connect with you outside of my blog so feel free to follow me on my social media channels: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. You can also email me at bamoats@gmail.com or you can click here to contact me as well. I would love to hear from you!
