I'm a nature girl and love doing anything outdoors (I definitely don't mind getting muddy!). I like living on the coast but I could definitely use some mountains and better beaches! I aspire to be not only a better runner, but also to be a well rounded athlete. One day I think it would be awesome to do a sub-30 5K, so I will just keep working at it until I get it done! I also have my sights set on a sprint triathlon in my area next spring. The key for me is staying active, and since I get bored easily I'm always trying new things!
I'm just a regular person who decided to make a change. I've lost 30 pounds and have 75 to go to get to my goal weight (as of April 1st). I'm learning to love myself more and accept my body for what it is, instead of wishing it was something else. I'm not perfect but I do my best to eat healthy and find balance with it because I don't believe any magic pill or quick fix is the right thing for me. I am changing my life, not living on a diet. Sometimes it has been harder and slower than I thought it would be, but I try to just keep plugging away, knowing that eventually I will get there. I'm stronger and happier than I have been in a long time, and really that is all I can ask for!
Thanks so much for letting me share my story with you. I'm so thankful to have met so many wonderful people working on improving their lives...the power of community is amazing! :)
I'll be adding a little bit more about myself along the way...stay tuned!
