A New Blog

After some serious consideration (and a lack of consistent posting on my old blog), I got to thinking.  Why was I blogging?  What did my blog mean?  I started my old blog En Route to En Shape two years ago because I was trying to start running and to continue losing weight.  I've maintained a 25-30 pound loss for over two years now and as of this coming Saturday, I'll have successfully trained for and completed a half marathon race.  While I'd still like to lose 10-15 more pounds and have plenty of other goals for running, I figured that I am no longer "En Route to En Shape," but rather in decent shape and trying to get better.

Plus, my focus has shifted more to being an overall healthy person who feels good about myself and how my clothes fit rather than a number on the scale.  Sure, this blog will probably have some weigh-ins, but I don't want it to be the main focus of this new space.  In this new space, I hope to focus more on healthy eating and cooking on my student-tastic budget, working on improving my speed and endurance as a runner, and hopefully finding some spare time to read interesting things (that aren't just French literature).

So, here you have it.  A new blog.  On that note, I have some reading to do.

Eating: Drinking coffee and looking forward to mom's chili for lunch
Reading:  Le Neveu de Rameau by Diderot
Running:  3 miles easy later today (let's hope it doesn't rain)


  1. Stopping by from ER2ES - love Diderot! "La Réligieuse" is a fun train/bus read - no one has a clue you're reading about scandalous, naughty nuns! :)

  2. I found you! I like the new blog. If feels good to write posts on a blog that reflects who and where you are, doesn't it?

    Where are you guys dining Friday night? Getting together would be great! I am so excited for you to run your first half!!!!
