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!


  1. Believe me, I know all about changing the topic of blogs! With 2 major surgeries in the last year and very little running, my blog has been all over the place...Your blog is for you to journal your matter what it includes.....Readers will come and go, but there will always be someone whose life you will touch with your writing.....keep at it..I will definately stay tuned in!!

  2. Have you seen your primary care doc about your knees? Sometimes they can help with things like tendinitis. Or have you tried biking? Biking strengthens your quads which often relieves knee problems in runners. Although, taking time off is often the best "cure." The recipes are great!

  3. The blog looks great! Looking forward to some great recipes!
