Hey there! I’m Krista. I’m 27, I’m a pharmacist, and I live in Traverse City, MI.


My history with sharing my life all over the internet goes way back to 2010 when I started my first blog, Healthy Berg. (You may click here if you want to check it out.) I posted regularly on that site for about 2 & 1/2 years, and my entries chronicled my weight loss journey during my final two years of pharmacy school. Before I started that blog and during the time that I wrote it, I lost a lot of weight by dieting and exercising and I would frequently write about my daily eats and exercise routines.

However, things happen and life changes, and eventually I found my blog posts decreasing in frequency to the point where I was hardly ever posting at all. It seemed that I had outgrown Healthy Berg in more ways than one and I was ready for a fresh start in the blogosphere.

Fall 2013 was when I really started to feel like I needed a change in my life and I began to arrange a job relocation and a move downstate. That move came to fruition in July 2014, and I packed up my Traverse City apartment and moved down to the big bad city of Grand Rapids. That is when I also started thisย new blog, Urban Impulse, to document my experiences as I started this new chapter of my life.

Well, as much as I love Grand Rapids, it didn’t take me long to realize that living there was just not for me. You can read more about that in this post, but long story short is that exactly one year after I moved down there, I was packing up my Grand Rapids apartment to move back up north.

So what am I up to now exactly? Well, I’ve reached a new low and I’ve moved back in with my parents.


No, really, I’m not kidding. I really am living with my parents. But, it’s only until this beauty is finished.


That’s right! I’m building a house and I couldn’t be more excited about it!

As far as Urban Impulse goes, I really have no solid predictions about the direction that this blog is going to take. I post about all kinds of random things going on in my life and I would love if you’d follow along. I also have a YouTube channel where you can find vlogs and random videos that I put together while experimenting with iMovie. Of course, I do plan on getting back on the weight loss train – it’s no secret that I’ve gained the weight back – but it’s not going to be the main focus of this blog. I think balance is crucial when trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle and that is something that I still need to master. Hopefully this will be something I can improve on the second time around.

  1. Hey Krista! I know you don’t like to blog about food, but you had some great recipes on your other blog, do you think in the future you might list a recipe page on here? Just curious ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. It’s definitely a possibility ๐Ÿ™‚ and it’s not that I don’t like to blog about food – because I do – I just don’t want my WHOLE blog to be about food!
