I’ve been feeling more sleep deprived lately but it’s been a crazy couple of weeks (mostly with work). I’ve also been trying not to let bad habits slide in when it gets crazy (i.e. stress eating). As I was telling someone a few days ago, I like working out because I sit A LOT – … More Keep calm & just workout
Yesterday before my office holiday party (yes, we do it AFTER the holidays), a coworker mentioned that he started going on the pedialyte diet. I literally laughed in his face, then I realized he was serious. WHOOPS. I actually have heard of this diet trick before but never gave it much thought. In his defense, … More The Pedialyte Diet

Something about it irks me. But gaining and losing 30+ lbs after college says something … More "your story can change someone else’s"

I’ve done 4 half-marathons but I wasn’t sure if I could train for a full one. To me, winning the free training program meant it was a sign that I should … More Beginning marathon training
I should write more (and not just Yelp reviews or memos). It keeps me focused and I like goal setting. So here it is. The goal of this fitness journal is to keep me motivated and focused. When I was training for my first half-marathon, I began to read lots of weight loss/running/fitness blogs, so … More 1st post – why?
