Start Here


So I have a blog now?? Say what?!?!

This is honestly something that I have been dreaming about doing for a long time, but starting something new like this can be…scary, to say the least. There’s always that fear that no one will read what I write, or that no one will care about the things that I am passionate about. But guess what…I don’t care anymore!

“A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action, makes your dreams come true.” — Greg S. Reid

I just want to say how excited I am to have finally launched this and I can’t wait to hear what you guys think of it too! I hope that you all can enjoy what I have to offer here. Sometimes when life gives you an amazing opportunity you have to run with it, and that’s just what I have done here!


About Shelby…

25 years young, recent-college grad who is just trying to survive this crazy thing we call life! I’m a teacher at a Private Catholic School in Columbus, Ohio and in my spare time I enjoy teaching fitness classes and reading. I love spending time with my friends and my family and just hanging out.


About the Blog…

Welcome to; a place where you can come to read my funny kid stories from work (Itty Bitty), follow me on my fitness journey (fitty) and read all about the many books that I have read and will read (litty). My hopes for this blog is that it can help to motivate you to expand your horizons in what you read, laugh a little at the funny things that I deal with in my day to day life, and to motivate you to live a healthy life, but to also know that living a healthy life comes with struggles! I hope that you find something of interest here to you!


Dedication // Thanks

There are many people that I can thank for getting me to where I am right now in my life.

I would like to start by thanking my parents. Without them I wouldn’t be half of the person that I am today. They have always supported me in everything that I have ever done in my life. When I was in college and changed my major 3 different times…they stuck beside me, supported me, and just wanted me to be happy. When I was up at 2am and my computer crashed and I lost my English paper, they stayed up with me while I cried and re-wrote my paper (yes that actually freshman year…such a nightmare!). When I wanted to become a fitness instructor, they supported that as well. When I struggled to lose weight, they supported me and encouraged me to keep going. Like I said, I wouldn’t be half of the person I am today without them.

My next shoutout goes to a very special girl, Courtney Martineau (link to her blog will be below!) This girl was brought into my life along with a handful of other amazing women through an Instagram page, and let me just say that I never thought in a million years that I could develop such a strong and amazing bond with people that I haven’t even met. But that’s another story! I came to this amazing group of women with my idea for this blog lookin for help picking out a name, and this girl delivered! She came up with several different name ideas for me and I fell in love with the first one she came up with; and Itty, Bitty, Fitty, Litty was born! But that’s not all! As we got talking and discussing the idea, we BOTH decided we were going to do this TOGETHER. And my girl is launching her very own blog as well! I am so blessed to have this girl in my life and so incredibly grateful for her support and encouragement! So I’m asking all of YOU to go head over to her blog, check it out and give her a follow, I promise you will not regret that decision!
