She's baaaaaaaack!!

Hey blog world, how the heck are ya?! Remember me, the artist formally known as Sugar Free Cupcake? I know, I know, its been forever and a day. What's that? Aw, well that's so nice of you to say and yes, I missed you too. We really have to keep in touch. I mean it too.

So officially it has been 6 months since I dropped off the blog radar. It wasn't what I wanted (I love it here!) but it was what I needed at the time. Let's just say that life got crazy for a while and I lost my blogging mojo in the process.
Now for the good news: Since I have been gone I have maintained my weight loss (there has been a few fluctuations, first down then up, along the way) I have been busy in the gym AND (this is my favorite part!) I have been kicking some major ass in the running department!!

Flash back to Fall 2009: A runner was something I wanted to be. Sure, I literally ran, but I had a really hard time qualifying myself in a league of people whose sheer physical fitness simply astounds me. At that point my furthest distance was 5K and while that is definitely nothing to sneeze at I knew I wanted more. I set some goals during that time, one of them being to run a 10K in the spring. Well guess what?!? I did it! TWICE!! How friggin' awesome is that?

Fast forward to Spring 2010: These days I run all the freaking time! 6K here, 9K there. 16.5 wonderfully painful kilometres all in one shot even! And I feel great! I am a Runner (and not just because I now have a nifty subscription to Runner's World either) Running has found a place in my life like no other activity ever has. Sure, I still cross train a few days a week, but even spinning and boxing don't have the same special place in my heart that running does. I wake up early on my days off to run, I run in the rain, I run and I run and I run!

Here I am crossing the finish line of the Sporting Life 10K in Toronto:


And I did it in less then an hour which I am so excited about!

Its been a crazy ride folks but look where I ended up: Healthy, happy and still rocking my skinny jeans!


There's so much more but I'll save that for another day..... I'm so glad to be back.
