"Pursue your goals, but never lose sight of the reality of things." -Amy Suto
Back in 2010, I could barely run a fifteen minute mile and chocolate was one of my main food groups.
Now, I’m training for my first 13 mile half marathon in January 2012, I can run an eight minute mile, I lost twenty pounds, and I’m discovering new obscure vegetables every day.
Suffice to say I’m healthy and happier than I’ve ever been before. I’m much better prepared for the important things in life, like impromptu foot chases and dance offs.
This blog is for all of you, my lovely followers, who are some of the sexiest mofos on the planet. You people are ridiculously awesome, and I’m here to help you reach your health-related goals through aesthetically pleasing pictures paired with motivational captions.
Basically, I’m your free personal trainer/life coach who knows what it’s like to fight through the 2AM chocolate cravings, the don’t-make-me-exercise mini-tantrums, and the I-can’t-do-this-so-instead-I’m-going-to-drown-my-sorrows-in-a-diet-Coke moments.
But, the truth is, being healthy and eating colorful fruits and veggies is a billion times better than any sugary confection I’ve ever eaten. (Including carrot cake. And I used to LOVE carrot cake.)
So this is for you, because I understand. I’ve been where you are right now, and I want to help.
And don’t be afraid to leave me something in my ask box! I want your stories, your thoughts, your questions, your victories.

Unfortunately, I do not have a medical degree, nor one of those snazzy white coats that all respectable doctors have. In fact, the closest thing I have to a medical degree are all the episodes of House I watch, and my ability to diagnose everything as Lupus.
Nothing on this blog should take the place of advice from a doctor.
I am not responsible for you lovely people and your personal health, and you are not allowed to sue me because I hereby declare that I am not liable for the decisions you make.
I just exist to entertain you all with pretty pictures and hand you medical studies from respectable journals while offering my suggestions paired with Back to the Future references.
So don’t take my word for it! I do my best to be as accurate as possible, but it’s best to consult the people with a bajillion years of medical training before you go and start a new diet all willy-nilly.
