fatmaninalittlesuit asked: Are you still around - or just super busy :)


Answer:

Hi John!!! I’m here, just busy and still injured :(. I have been trying to slowly start running again , but it’s taking a long time to heal. I feel so unmotivated lately since I can’t work out . I really need to start blogging again though, because I have missed you guys. You are such a great support and motivation. How have you been?

Ps. I was at the gym yesterday and took this selfie to show you I’m still trying :)

Hey everyone ! I went to the doctors on Tuesday and basically I have runners knee :(. The pain has now shifted from my left leg to my right leg. Ugh, this is so frustrating , I just want to feel good again . When I went to the doctors I weighed in at 111 lb, not bad considering I have been eating crap and not running . I have been taping my knee , foam rolling it and icing it . I can’t let this injury keep me down anymore. I went to running revolution and had them help me pick out better shoes. Hopefully ,they put less strain on my knees . On another note , in case anyone is wondering I now have a boyfriend ! He wanted to make it official two weeks ago . Crazy how life changes!

I’m here !!!

I’m alive!!! I have been MIA ,since work has kept me busy and I injured my knee :(. I won’t be able to do my half marathon next week , that I have been looking forward to so much. My knee becomes unbearable when I try to run, so I really need to rest it. I have put on a little bit of weight, which surprisingly doesn’t depress me, like it would have in the past. Maybe I am really loving my body?? I’m thinking about joining a gym for a bit, until my knee heals. I hate paying for the gym, but it will help me stay on track. How is everyone else???? I’m going to catch up n your lives right now :)

February was not my month. I gained weight and injured my knee, so I barely ran. I need to get back on track, I have missed everyone!

Hey :). I’m on my 5th day of being wheat, sugar , and dairy free! I’m hesitant to say I’m paleo , because I’m not giving up alcohol . A girl needs a little gin in her life :).

On a running note , I’m not where I want to be . I totally underestimated what it’s like to have a working and social life .I work a lot , but I’m also using that as an excuse to be lazy ! This needs to change , ASAP . I have put on a little weight… Besides not liking how it looks , I’m more annoyed with how it makes me feel physically , I feel sluggish . I don’t want to get back into bad habits and gain all the weight back . I have worked too hard to slip back, into bad habits . Starting Saturday , I’m doing the whole 30! For this I will be completely true to the program , I hear people feel phenomenal afterwards!

On a whole different note, can we talk about how amazing my life is right now :). A few months ago I couldn’t get out of bed , it was probably the lowest point of my life and now I’m constantly smiling ! I owe everything to my sisters , friends and of course my lovely tumblr friends :). I haven’t talked about it much , because dating is always awkward …but I have met someone I actually like . We have been hanging out for over two months now . He’s actually cooking me a paleo dinner at his place tonight and we are hanging out on valentines day . How weird is it that I have a valentines’s date , I didn’t see that coming . It’s nice to have someone’s company who I enjoy and I’m just going with the flow . As cheesy as that sounds . I don’t want to lose myself in a relationship again. I’m happy by myself and I know now that I don’t need someone else to make me happy .

I need to start updating more , I miss everyone. Thanks everyone for continuing to inspire me . Happy early Valentines day :)!

Finally completed my first run for February. It was a tough one ! I only ran 3 miles and it killed me . It could be since I haven’t ran in a while or my crappy eating habits…. Either way
I need to get back to my normal running schedule . Even though it was a hard run it felt good to get out there :).

Not by much . I have been going out to eat like once a week . That’s the only difference
