I have started running!



If you know or met me 7-10 years ago, you would know very well that I was never model thin or super fit, but I was much thinner and I worked out regularly. We’re talking running 3-5 miles 5 times a week and yoga for 90 minutes 3 times a week, as well as a gym session every few days.

…And then 3 years ago, having graduated, got a job and became comfortable I started doing less. I found myself no longer doing Yoga and running much less. 4 months ago I hit my all-time fattest, I had gained around 20 pounds…yowsers!!! Sure I had moved to a new city (Nor Cal) found myself living alone and with a new job that paid well so I could eat like I was on vacation every day. Let me tell you the calories add up and every 5 nice or so dinners is about a pound!

About 4 months ago, I came home to my parents and siblings….and thankfully they said what they thought “Nanc you go fat and I’m not talking “P H”” as they laughed.


I shoke it off, but a few days later I found myself going to the gym, and the next day yoga. For the last 2 weeks (maybe 3) I have been running instead of eating lunch or dinner. And I have been cooking at home more, or grabbing a low-Cal salad at wholefoods!!!

I feel better and today as I was running; I wasn’t even that tired halfway through my run. Things are looking up…

I have a long way to go but I will get back to what I looked like 7 years ago 🙂



The Descendants

I watched George Clooney in the Descendants last night. Let me tell you, I was an emotional wreck. I agree with the movie although Hawaii seems like paradise the people who live there actually have stressful lives just like the rest of us.

One of my favorite parts was Clooney running for answers…It was just beautifully captured, cinematically at least. 2 friends with masters from the USC film school and the best that i can come up with is Cinematically. Oh Ry and Kev would shake their heads at this….if they ever read it 🙂

Great movie!!!
