Sunday Afternoon.

Hello everyone! I’m recovering from a little cold, which sucks, but you gotta keep on truckin’ 🙂 Yesterday I watched the Pacquiao vs. Marquez fight (so sad Manny lost, but that knockout was intense lol). My younger cousin decided to google “hashtags” about Pacquiao and about an hour later (maybe even less) there were 48,000 memes and such comical things about the knockout. I’ve got to admit, some of them were pretty clever.

Anyhoo, I hope everyone is safe, healthy, & doing well! I know it’s the holidays and it’s hard to stick with working out and eating healthy (which is still kinda hard for me too!), but fit in a little daily activity like walking your dog, dancing like a maniac for 5 minutes (alone of course), or cleaning the house (desperate times call for desperate measures lol). Remember, “A healthy body leads to a healthy mind” 🙂

Lastly, I’m gunna leave you all with this awesome pasta sauce recipe that I happened to stumble upon: Creamy Avocado Pasta

I made this last night, and it was so delicious! I love avocado and this was such a great pasta sauce, it was creamy, zesty, and just flavorful. I used regular thin spaghetti, and for the amazing piece of salmon there, I heated up some extra virgin olive oil in a pan, placed the thawed filet of salmon in, seasoned it with a little garlic salt, lemon, and pepper. After its halfway cooked, I like to add fresh minced garlic (I don’t add it in the beginning because it ends up being super burned when the salmon is finished). I let the salmon sit with the fresh garlic so that all the flavors are absorbed (Mmm, I’m getting hungry just typing this lol). For additional flavor, you can make a tartar sauce or (what I personally love & prefer) caramelized onions (you can follow these steps: caramelized onions) I also like to add a little soy sauce and garlic to the onions for more flavor. Enjoy with a nice glass of wine & bon appétit!

I hope you all enjoy this awesome recipe! Stay safe & have a great day, Cheers!

I’m back.

Let’s hope it’s for good! I do apologize 😦 it’s been years. So much has been going on in my life, and now i’m starting to find a happy medium.

I recently got into running charitable events & that has been keeping me busy (minus school and work). I’m really hoping to re-new this blog. I would love to take anyone that happens to stumble upon here on my fitness journey (don’t worry, i’ll try my best to keep the informative reviews and fun stuff up to date as well!)

These past couple of years have been rough, & my body has (unfortunately) had to pay the price. There was stress, school, work, relationships, etc. The list goes on, and before I knew it I had gained over 50 pounds. It’s amazing, yet odd how you dont even notice how or when the pounds accumulated. Then all of a sudden, BAM, you don’t fit into clothes that used to fit, and that number on the scale is unbearable to look at. I’m still confused as to what the heck went wrong, but I do know that I’m guilty of not watching or caring about what went into my body.

Also, I’ve lost a very dear person in my life recently, which has caused me to hit rock bottom. I have spent countless nights drinking with friends and eating out almost everyday.. just to forget the pain I hold in my heart.

But I can’t do this to myself anymore, and I’m ready to change. I want to eat healthier, think healthier, and be healthier. This is my epiphany.

So if anyone out there is going through a similar situation or have any helpful tips or even some motivation to push this way, please feel free to share! My main goal here is to keep track of my progress, share new things I discover about how to live a healthy lifestyle (recipes, workouts, etc.)

Oh, and about my rekindled love of running.. I’ve recently done the Pasadena Kaiser Permanente 10k in May, Pasadena Awesome 80s 10k run in September (i think), and the Women’s Nike Half Marathon in San francisco. I take pride in finishing all of these because they’re such big accomplishments, plus I love meeting new people and enjoying the scenic routes! I’m pretty much addicted, and the next ones I’m running are the Live Ultimate 10k and the Hollywood Half Marathon. I love doing runs that support a good cause, theres nothing like helping others..while getting fit!

I’m really excited about sharing this journey with everyone, cheers to living a healthy life 🙂
