Fat To Fit And More

A Journey from Fat to Fit through Running


November 2015

Birthday Fun


So my daughter takes martial arts at a local studio.  Today I took her even though it was my bday and this is the fun that happened.  I did the obstacle course with her.  Last year I would have never done this I would have been too self conscious to even try.  This year although I am still not at my goal weight I am happier than I have ever been.  This birthday will be and has been amazing and I am thankful for the changes happening in my life.


Join Me!!

Hey all join me starting now through January 2nd in the Holiday Sweat Challenge!!!

Find a way to stay healthy and fit til the new year.  I am sure I am not alone in saying that the holidays are often a difficult time with eating and exercise.  There is always something holding us back or getting in the way.  Let this challenge hold you accountable and give you some extra motivation.  I will be participating and look forward to it!  Let’s help each other over the next couple of months.


I am still not able to run (one more week I hope). So today’s workout was a 50 min elliptical workout that I found on Pinterest.


I admit I wasn’t sure about it at first but it wasn’t bad and I certainly got my sweat on that is for sure.  I am trying to find new things that I like and ways to keep myself motivated so that I don’t stop going to the gym.  My biggest fear is losing the motivation so I remind myself every day of how I have come and how much my entire life has changed.  Keep moving everyone. Progress not perfection…..

Exciting Things

There are a few exciting things happening in my life right now.

First I was accepted to be a 261 Fearless Ambassador.  This is a great opportunity to share with some really amazing women.  I am proud to be a part of this group.

Then I was accepted to be a #sweatpink ambassador as well!!  Another amazing opportunity.

I am so proud of how far I have come over the past year and how much I have changed both outside and in.  I now am able to see things from a different perspective and to enjoy more of my life and my daughters.  I am no longer afraid of what lies in front of me, but I am excited to see what this next year will bring for me.  I plan on continuing to run and to also enjoy my new love of strength training (shh don’t tell my trainer I secretly love this).  I definitely feel very bad ass when I get in the gym and can do something I couldn’t do when I started.

Here’s to another great year of discovery.


So I am having a really hard time with this injury.  Part of the reason is that I still really don’t know what is going on.  I went to see the PA at the orthopedic office but I feel like I need a 2nd opinion.  However finding that is proving to be difficult.  I am still in a significant amount of pain and I have not been running.  I am still going to the gym though because I can’t not go at this point.  I just don’t understand the waking up in pain every day.  Today it is a sharp pain like someone is stabbing me in the butt area.  I know that isn’t good, but no one can really explain it.

I am trying my hardest to stay positive and focus on my nutrition and my strength training but it is difficult when I feel so helpless.
