Hi! Remember me?
No? It’s okay. I don’t blame you.
I think we can all deduce by now that I am going to be a once-in-awhile, whenever I feel like it, kind of blogger.
Trust me, I still read blogs. I may not always comment, but I do read. Now, with the help of Bloglovin. Which I’m not really a fan of. Does anyone else have problems with their feed updating?
For those of you who care (haha), here are a few updates about my “healthy living” life.
I’m going to honest with y’all. I fell off the workout wagon for a couple of months. I have a laundry list of excuses for this one…but I think that overall, I was just bored. I was only making it to the gym once a week (if that) and my workouts were lackluster.
What motivated me to get going again?
No, I did not run. But I worked all weekend. The Marathon has an incredible staff and the company that I work for was fortunate enough to help them with the event. I took the above picture at…I don’t know, 4:30 a.m.?
I could go on forever about Marathon weekend. If I were a better blogger, I would’ve dedicated an entire post to the Marathon alone. To make a long story short, it was a crazy-fun experience that I’ll never forget. I got to give one of my best friends a big hug as she crossed the finish line. This was her second year running the full marathon, and I was so proud of her!
Just being a spectator (posted up at the finish line, nonetheless) lit a fire under my butt and since then, I’ve been getting into a better groove with my workouts. I’m no marathoner, but lately I’ve been enjoying jogging/walking outside (weather permitting) and spinning classes at my gym.
I also treated myself to a five class pass at my favorite hot yoga studio, for variety. Plus…I’m really feelin’ vinyasa these days. Sweating buckets never felt so good.
Well…I can call myself an official pescatarian.
I stopped eating meat (except fish) about five/six months ago and haven’t looked back.
Maybe I’ll write a post behind my reasoning for this but overall, I just feel better without it. I was never a big meat-eater to begin with, and it started to gradually fade out of my diet over the past year without me even trying.
One of our interns at work mentioned that she doesn’t eat meat either. My co-worker chimed in and said that she tried going vegetarian for a month, but couldn’t do it. She said she craved burgers and whatnot. The intern and I agreed that if you have to force yourself away from meat, then you probably shouldn’t be a vegetarian.
I don’t crave meat. I prefer a plant-based diet, but it’s not for everyone.
This post is getting lengthy so I’ll end it here. More life updates to come. Hopefully…
P.S.- My job involves lots of pretty cakes. No wonder my pants are tight.
