Healthy living blogger Angela of Oh She Glows recently moved out of a big city with her husband, and also dropped her full-time research job at the same time. Her new gig? Opening her own healthy bakery! Read on for Angela’s yummy indulgence and her motivating fitness mantra.
5 things I can’t live without: My food processor, Canon DSLR camera, Vita-Mix, Garmin Forerunner, chia seeds.
I’m happiest when I’m: Outdoors during the summertime, enjoying delicious food and drinks with friends and family.
My biggest indulgence: My vegan Chilled Double Chocolate Torte. It is divine!
My fitness mantra: “You are stronger than you think.” I’ve taped this message on my back during races and other runners always thank me for the motivation, especially during the last mile of a half-marathon!
My “I Did It” moment: After struggling with an eating disorder for over 10 years, I was finally able to recover and lead a happy life free from obsession, binge-eating, and calorie counting. My “I did it” moment was when I realized how full and happy my life is now compared to the past. I now have so many hobbies (like blogging, writing, photography, running, baking, etc.) that I enjoy in my life and obsessive thoughts about food and weight do not consume me anymore.
