Well here I am, doing something that I’ve wanted to do for years but never thought I’d have the guts to do…starting a website! The thought of putting my recipes, tips, stories, etc. on the worldwide web for others to see scares me to death but at the same time brings me so much excitement and happiness. Within the past few years I’ve lost 30 pounds, ended a four-year relationship, ran a half marathon, fell in love, got engaged, gained 15 pounds, and finally figured out what makes me happy and how to stay healthy both mentally and physically…phew I’m exhausted!
This website and blog has been a thought in the back of my mind for a long time now and wouldn’t have come to fruition if it weren’t for the support of my friends and family. Whether it was helping me come up with a name, teaching me how to buy a domain, encouraging me to follow my dreams, or just listening, I genuinely am so thankful!
I am here to share my tips, tricks, and recipes for living a healthy, balanced lifestyle. So what does LoveCookRun mean?
Love – There is nothing more important in life than to love and be loved in return. I am one of the lucky few who has found someone who I want to spend the rest of my life with and someone who has helped me become a better person. Loving myself has also been a struggle in the past and I can say that I love me, flaws and all.
Cook – Not only will this be my last name in seven quick months, cooking is also a passion of mine. I am not a chef (although I like to think so) but I can cook some delicious, clean recipes that will change your mind about what it means to “eat healthy”. I want to share these recipes with you to help you on your road to getting fit.
Run – I love to run. I was one of those people who cringed at the thought of running and now I’ve signed up for my second half marathon and look forward to lacing up my shoes on most days.
I hope you will all follow me on my journey as I train for the half marathon, share my recipes, and provide tips to help you become the best version of yourself both on the inside and out!
