Hi, I'm Petra and this is my weight loss/fitness blog.
I used to be on Weight Watchers from January 2011 to October 2012, dropping approximately 45 lbs. I've made the transition from unhealthy and unhappy to athlete and this is my journey to becoming a healthier, happier me. I frequently post about my exercise (mostly running, yoga and lifting), the foods I eat, recipes I liked and my daily struggles. You'll also find the occasional tree hugger post, (travel) photography or anything else I find worth remembering and collecting.
I follow most blogs back that follow me. However, I do stay away from blogs that promote EDs, unhealthy methods of weight loss or negative body image.
Feel free to say hi any time!
I’d also meant to share the pictures from last weekend’s 4 Mile race. Most of them didn’t turn out that well, but a few are decent enough.
I believe all of these were taken on the last hill close to the finish line. Hence the happy face.
This is my favorite. I think I was snapping at people to keep moving. My biggest pet peeve is when people stop/walk immediately after crossing the finish line, blocking others from pushing through and across the finish line. It’s so inconsiderate. Once you’re done, just keep walking and move away to make space for others coming through.
One day I’ll manage to have a finisher photo where I don’t hold half-eaten food in my hand. ;o)
