The Balanced Guru is my personal blog about all my passions in my life.  Here you can find posts on health and fitness inspiration, recipes, DIY projects, decor, and everything in between!  

My name is Marisa and I am a Nebraska girl born and raised.  I am a Senior majoring in Psychology and I will be attending UNMC’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program this fall.  I am very passionate about healthy living and becoming the best person I can be.  My goal in life is to help and inspire others.  I have always loved design and blogging, so I am hoping that The Balanced Guru can be that outlet for me.

Here are a few tidbits about me:

♥ I am a fitness junkie

♥ I have my amazing boyfriend, Konrad, of over 7 years.  We started dating our freshman year of high school and have been inseparable since.  I am truly blessed.  

♥ I love decor and design.  I’ve probably re-arranged my room and watched too many HGTV shows to count.

♥ I am a proud Alpha Xi Delta girl

♥ Favorite color:  Purple 

♥ Favorite TV shows:  Bachelorette, Gossip Girl, Say Yes to the Dress, and House Hunters.  I love em all.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog.  Feel free to leave a message or contact me here – I always love finding new blogs and people to be inspired by : )

    I almost went to Nebraska but then decided to move out of the midwest and go to ASU! I was in Kappa Delta and love it… sorority life was so much fun. We also have the same favorite tv shows, haha my boyfriend was just telling me today that I watch way too much house hunters!

    Have a good rest of your weekend 🙂
