Fit Blogger We Love: Cherie Runs This

Cherie lost 82 pounds and is now a certified personal trainer!


The fit woman you see at right, Cherie, used to weigh 230 pounds. Can you believe it?! We hardly could, until she shared her amazing transformation story with us for the April issue (on newsstands now). Flip to page 16 to learn more about the amazing moment that motivated her weight-loss journey and how she went from struggling to walk up the stairs to finishing a half-marathon. For now, keep reading for a few details about the inspiring woman behind the tip-packed blog, Cherie Runs This!

My gym bag must-have:  iPod Shuffle, weight lifting gloves, protein powder, water bottle and my Polar heart rate monitor!

I can’t live without... My baby blanket, cell phone, coffee and my family.

My biggest indulgence: Crusty French bread with real butter. The perfect part of my cheat meal!

My favorite way to work out: Weight lifting and running.

My fitness mantra: "Suck it up so you don't have to suck it in." That phrase gets me through my workout each time!
