First Post

I have been following several food blogs for quite some time and I knew right away I wanted to start my own. I live in Richmond, VA with my boyfriend Isaac and work as a Marketing Project Manager for a local real estate investment company. When I started college (which was 5 years ago…. ahhh) I said to myself that I would not gain the freshman 15. I started working out everyday and eating healthy meals. I lost 15-20 pounds that year and have stayed at a healthy weight of 118-122 since. I eat rather healthfully, work out quite frequently, and write in a food journal to keep track of what I am eating. I don’t count every calorie but writing it down has become more of a habit now than a tool to lose weight. I plan to use this blog in place of writing down in my food journal…. It will save me the 4 bucks I spend each time I have to by a new one and waste less paper. So I will record what I eat, try to remember to take photos of everything and post recipes to share.
