True Life: I'm a Healthy Living Blogger

Linking up again with Mrs. Monologues and Tara at Fabulous But Evil for their True Life series!  This week is True Life:  I'm a Healthy Living Blogger.

I don't know what the requirements are for this claim, exactly.  What I do know is that I have a few different labels such as "fitness", "wellness", and "nutrition" that I tag my posts with pretty often, so I'm going to run with it.  I think my first fitness-related post on the blog was about realizing I needed to so something about all the drinking and late night food I had consumed post-college.  You can read about that, here, about my first boot camp, here, and about my little secret here

Over the past two years I have tried several different groupons and living social deals for all kinds of fitness facilities and boot camps in my area.  It has made staying in shape fun and interesting and has helped me to find what I really enjoy.  Two weeks ago, I started a new program, which I am totally loving so far.  I have tried a few different styles of eating, such as Paleo, but since we eat pretty lean and healthy at home anyway, those experiments aren't a drastic change for me.

Over the past few years I have learned a lot about the different effects that certain foods can have on your body, and also how to tone up and lose body fat the right way.  It's really hard for me to see/hear about people doing fad diets or taking the easy way out to lose weight when I know how much hard work really goes into changing your lifestyle and how long it takes to see results.  I can only share my stories and experiences and hope that they take something away from that.  I hope one day everyone realizes just how damaging processed food is to our bodies and can switch to eating clean and realize how much better you feel!

Here's to Healthy Living!!
