Monica at Run, Eat, Repeat started her blog to document her weight loss through running and healthy eating. And like many of us who love food (who doesn’t, really?), keeping track of calories so you burn more than you eat can be hard. We can definitely relate to, and enjoy reading, her posts about yummy food and fun running routes. Read on for her motivational mantra and her ultimate fitness dream:
On my fit life list: Run a Sub 4 hour Marathon!!! I can’t believe I’m admitting that on the internet since I’m so scared of doing it, but I gotta dream big right?
My biggest indulgence: Self serve frozen yogurt with as many toppings as actual yogurt. Granola, chocolate chips, fruit, almonds, animal cookies… you name it, I’ll put it on my ice cream. I make it a point to get it once a week so I never feel deprived.
Most embarrassing song I’ll admit I work out to: “F*** You” by Cee-Lo Green. But it’s mostly only embarrassing because I sing it out loud as I go along.
My fitness mantra: “You will tell them ‘Yes’.” It’s from an old Nike ad I found in high school. I have the whole poem memorized and sometimes repeat it to myself when I’m having a tough run. Basically it says that your entire life everyone will tell you “No” and you must tell them “Yes”. I love that the message can be applied to anything we aspire to do.
My “I Did It” moment: When I completed my first marathon. Literally, until I crossed the finish line I thought there was a 60% chance I’d just collapse and die at some point on the course.
