Hey guys! I hope everyone is doing well. I know I've changed the feel of the blog a bit...going from a running blog to a health food blog, but I assure you, that's not the case. I just haven't had much time lately to blog about running and recipes are just really easy!
The feel of the blog will change tho. In the past I mostly blogged about running, well, I cannot run anymore. I haven't been able to run for a few months now. My knees have reached the point of no return with tendinitis in both knees. More on the knees later.
The blog will be a healthy lifestyle blog. Will include my gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free recipes; posts about boxing; and overall my journey toward a healthier me.
I started this journey 2 years ago. Boxing and I started dating in May 2008 and we added running to the mix October 2008 as I prepared for the Austin Half Marathon in February 2009. In the past 2+ years I've been on a pretty stead lose weight, maintain weight, lose weight, maintain, etc. This is also when I started being more mindful of the food I was eating.
Now that I've been seeing a nutritionist, I've had to put running aside, and I've picked up boxing again, it only makes sense to turn the blog into more of a "healthy living" blog.
A friend from high school reads this and asked me how much it costs to eat the way I do. I let her know that it isn't cheap, but with the proper planning, doesn't have to be super expensive either. I've started adding "budget meal" to the meals that can be made for $15 or less for 4 servings or more.
I hope that you're all ok with the transition of the blog!
