Just a chicago girl that likes to blog about day to day insanity (real life is truly stranger than fiction), working out (TurboFire & p90x are my passions but i'm starting to run), and transitioning to eating better and more cruelty free. i love beachbody. i love feeling healthy. i HATE waking up early to work out, but i love how good i feel when i do. i love eating delicious healthy food. i also love eating gooey cheesy chocolately stick-to-your-ribs food (note: i'm vegan soooo that's daiya that's sticking to my ribs these days)
FitLife is about more than eating healthy and working out though- it's about making your to-do list EVERY DAY and writing down your goals and having a positive "i can" instead of "i'll try" attitude, and I want to encompass all that here.
Ask anything and keep on sharing your gems of FitLife!

Every morning I check the weather and finally it was warm enough for a jog. My first lakefront jog since a few weeks before the #marathon. I forgot how much I miss that #run! After you run the same path enough times it’s almost comforting and you can just lose yourself in the run. #cantstopwontstop #morning #sunrise
Delicious dinner with an awesome friend! I asked the server if the garlic sauce for the edamame was vegan… he didn’t have to double check or ask what that meant. It wasn’t but he then rattled off which sauces were vegan and what he could do to spice up the edamame. For the entree there were some vegan selections on the menu but I asked for a recommendation and he mixed and matched things for me so I got some sort of noodles with #basil and garlic and grilled tofu and Chinese broccoli and all sorts of veggies. I wish this place was closer or that our server would work closer to me because that was amazing service! #vegan #whatveganseat #service #woknfire (at Wok n’ Fire)
I’m honor of getting #lolla tickets this week (thanks @nicolied214!), this week’s #tbt is from lolla years ago when I got to meet #againstme #crush @laurajanegrace. Still makes me swoon! (at Grassy Knoll - Lollapalooza)
This morning I realllly didn’t feel like working out after four days off and eating and drinking way too much all weekend. But since I took four days off and ate and drank too much all weekend I figured I should do something. So I decided to make it “wear pink and do pilates” day. Since it’s all lying down pretty much I figured it was the best option for my lazy mood. I was feeling guilty about my laziness until this evening when everything started hurting! I guess those small movements even when laying down really are doing something! While I didn’t burn a million calories (or even hundreds) I still got up and got it done… which really is the hardest part of getting back on track. Tomorrow: eccentric lower (aka leg day)!
