I started my health and fitness blog in July 2011 with the hope that maybe writing down everything that I was doing and just ‘venting’ would help me move forward and actually make some progress. When I first started, I had no expectations of what I would find in the blogging community. In fact, I had absolutely NO IDEA how many blogs about weight loss were out there. I have to say, the experience has been terrific.

I love writing in my blog. It gives me time to reflect on what I did during that day and to plan for what I want to do in the upcoming days. I like going back and seeing how far I’ve come in terms of progress in my strength, speed, and stamina. I also look back on the obstacles and challenges I’ve faced – emotional breakdowns, incessant insomnia, PhD stress, injuries, bronchitis, and surgery – and look at how far I’ve come.
