For Realz

8 Jul

How many times I have I said I’m coming back and going to update regularly? I know, it’s really too much for me to count as well.

Well, I’m truly honest this time around. You know why?


Seven days a week. No, you did not read that wrong. I am running seven days a week. 


However, after not working out in over a year (I know, right?) I am extremely slow and I sweat like a pig after five minutes. The funny thing is, I love every minute of it! Sweating is just like my thing, ya know?


I really am going to start updating more frequently and by more frequently, I mean every other day. I have a lot post topics in mind like motivation, getting back into running, depression, etc. If you any recommendations, let me know. I’m always open to knowing what you guys are interested in.

Truly, I am excited. I have not been this happy in a long time. It’s great to feel great! 


In addition, my blog is going to be focused on weight loss for a while. This is due to the fact that I have gained a lot of weight and I am focusing on losing all my unhealthy pounds.

So, with that information in my mind, let’s begin with this….

My goal as of now is to lose around 30-40 pounds for my ‘happy’ weight or as a I call it: I’m content here. My current weight now is (I’m so scared to post this right now. I want to cry.)…

I weight 182 lbs.

My 1st goal weight is: 130

To be honest, I have been doing fairly well with losing two pounds per week. It’s due to my vegan lifestyle and actually running miles everyday. I really hope you guys don’t think badly of me for being overweight.

Anyway, I will update more when I know what you guys want to know about what’s been going on my life! As of now, I’m just going to do a fitness survey….

    It’s really awesome to read an update from you! (I’ve never commented before, but have been following you for ages 🙂 ) You’re such an inspiration Christy (even if it doesn’t always feel like it to you) and honestly such an incredible person (I can say this even though I don’t know you personally because almost everyone is incredible, and those low-lives who aren’t just yet have the potential to be (you’re the former, just btw!!! from your blog, I definitely have a super lovely spirit about you, and aren’t horrible to people. No objections!!).

    I know you know that you have a hard journey ahead of you, but you CAN do this! You have drive and motivation, and working legs and a working brain. More importantly, you have such a precious heart, and I hope that along this journey you come to know how amazing, how special, how important, and how loved you are. Anyone who doesn’t know this missing out. There is no debate over how special you are, you are human and therefore you must be amazing. No exceptions. All the best Christy, you got this! Even through the obstacles, you got this. Have no shame, own it 🙂 xx

    So nice to see you back blogging… But please don’t try to lose weight, whilst working out on , on 1000 cals. That’s just a ridiculously low amount for anyone, especially someone so young. It is just a recipe for metabolic damage, and you can’t get adequate macro or micro nutrients on that little food.
