Who me?

Yes, I was the girl that lived on the dreadmill. Of course I never referred to it as that because I thought I was in love. I had found the answer to all my problems, fat and energy! I have always been active and loved playing any kind of sport! I didn't grow up with a whole lot of cable TV or summers spent sleeping in...I had to, as my mother would say, get out and blow the stink off. I spent my summers at the beach, the fall cheerleading and spring playing volleyball. Any other time of the year I was running...or eating. Usually one or the other.
Once I graduated I spent 6 months running, 6 months eating...I didnt want to be unfair to either so I did a little of both!
Running cleared my head and got me {after many months} "toned." Up until a bit ago I thought that running was the only thing that would get me in shape! I ran 5ks for the shirts and the piece of mind.                                  
I met a friend a couple months back who was lifting weights and following a training program that helped her lose over 30lbs! It was quite inspiring to see her growing stronger every week. I decided to start asking questions and soon I was on board! We are now in the process of rebuilding our home gym and revamping our fridge. I have also been mediating more to find a missing piece... I just don't know what that is yet.
Ill be writing about this process in the coming months. And that is me. Start to finish...mostly.
