Introduction/Week 1

It wasn’t until college that I even started thinking about what I ate. I also started paying attention to my physique so I went to the gym pretty regularly. A big influence for these decisions was my good friend Matt Rizzo who made me realize the importance of making healthier food choices and physical fitness. He was and still is a great accountability partner when it comes to food! Fast forward 6 years and here I am today. I love my veggies but I can’t say no to junk food. 

This isn’t my first attempt to blog but this is a topic that I am pretty passionate about so I hope that will be a driving force to keep it updated. The plan is to post on Sunday nights what I ate that week, how many times I went to the gym, how many miles I ran etc. It will also be peppered with recipes and links to health and fitness articles. Feel free to chime in on the conversation.

P.S. This is a judgement free blog. I am trying to eat healthier and make better decisions but I do enjoy my soda, fast food, potato chips, and candy. So don’t judge me.

DISCLAIMER: The reason why I ate out so much this week is because we just moved and it was easier to eat out then pack a lunch. ALSO, a new gas station opened up by my work and they are giving away free any size soda which is actually KILLING ME!!!! I hate how much I love soda.
