Running down the Scale


I Run.

If you would have told me this four years ago, I would I have laughed at you.

If you would have told me this about five months ago, I would have chuckled. Running? My exercise of choice? Running, really? Over biking, or walking?

Yes.

I spent a hot summer trailing behind a friend of mine, who could go faster than me without even trying. Sweating in 98 degree heat, running, huffing and puffing.

See the thing is, for the first time in my life, weight began to fall off of me. I was on my parents diet (mostly), working, and running alot. I had never seen such good results...and trust me. I have been trying to loose weight for YEARS.

So, that is my little peace about running, will you come run with me?

If you have a killer sweet tooth, try vegan chocolate cake. It’s not the best, but it lessens the blow of calming your craving.

  • 10 push-ups a day (I suck at them)
  • 10 minutes of yoga a day
  • Going to the gym 4 times a week, 1 visit completed thus far
  • Only eat to the serving size of anything I touch in the kitchen
