Two new things

It's been awhile since I last blogged and too much has happened for me to catch you up, so I will just share two things with you.

1. I am now a runner.

Yep. I always thought that I would be a runner when I grew up. Since this year I turned 33 I decided that I should probably start. I got a couple of girlfriends together and we did the Couch 2 5K program. It is awesome! If you are not (yet) a runner, and you want to be, you should check it out. It's a 9 week program that takes you from not ever running, to running 3.1 miles.

Tomorrow is my first race and I am getting so nervous! I am running a 5.3 mile leg of the Whiskeytown Relay with 3 girlfriends.

2. I have gone Paleo.

I have (mostly) given up dairy, grains, sugar and legumes. I say mostly because I will sometimes have those things as a treat but they are no longer a part of my daily diet. If you are wondering what's left to eat, I eat meat, eggs, fruits, veggies and healthy fats. ;) If you want more information on the Paleo diet, go here: What is the Paleo Diet?

I have lost 18 pounds and feel better than I have in years!

So, that's what's new around here;)

With the start of Fall and the promise of cooler weather (hopefully soon) I am planning to get back to blogging more regularly.
