I’m 30, married, and have four Devon Rex cats.
I started running when I was 15 with my dad. My dad is awesome by the way. I ran cross-country and track in high school. Once I got to college I started running half marathons, but I picked up a little too much weight that first year.
I studied Latin at LSU, an incredibly useful degree, and I love Latin a lot. After college I joined Teach for America and taught for 5 years in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Hurricane Katrina hit one month after I started teaching. I picked up a little too much weight those first few years teaching.
I married the only guy who could tie with my dad for “greatest guy ever” and after a few years of being married we moved to New Orleans so that I could teach with a fast growing network of charter schools. I gained a little too much weight starting a school.
So, six years into teaching, three years into marriage and two years into cat parenting, I had gained a lot of weight. I was still running, but very slowly. I joined Weight Watchers online and have been with it for over a year. I have lost 50 pounds. I have gotten much more involved in fitness and healthy living. This blog is about my journey sweating for the best me there is. Enjoy!
