Readers, I have had so (o-o-o-o-o) many things change over the last few months … I just don’t even know where to begin. So many wonderful things are going on in my life. The problem is — I feel like I have really let this blog fall by the wayside. Perhaps, it’s because I have been so busy. Or maybe it’s because it helped me to achieve exactly what I have been seeking.
When I started Eat, Pray, Run, I was at a point in my life where everything had gone awry. I wasn’t happy with my job, my state of mind, my health … a lot of things. It was tough and discouraging, and I knew writing about it was one of the best ways I would be able to make my way through it.
Well, I can truly say that today I woke up and actually said aloud, “I am so happy about my life right now!”
Because I am. I am getting married. I have a fabulous family and fiance. I have a new (totally cool!) job. I have moved to the city I have always (and forever) wanted to live in. I have a renewed zest for personal fitness …
I am pretty dang happy.
I know for sure the need for this blog has come to a close, and I want to end in a place where you (and I) feel content with the journey we have taken. Thank you so much for reading, but most of all thank you so much for teaching me something about me. This journey has been a necessary one; one that has helped to shape the “me” I am today.
Please stay tuned for information on where you can find me writing next. In the mean time, check out my new blog at Lime.com, Walk This Way.
And, of course, as always, live the life this blog was meant to help you fulfill. Connect with the spiritual you, live a healthy life (mind and body) and never forget — eat lots of good food! ♥
Hello, all of my lovely readers! I apologize that Eat, Pray, Run has been on such a terribly long hiatus. Dan and I have been all over the place these last few months, and things appear to (FINALLY) be taking a breather.
I will update you soon with new details and future plans for this site. Things will be ch-ch-ch-ch-changing, but it will be nothing but exciting!
Have a fabulous day,

So, it’s about that time when we all start thinking about what it might be like if someone asked us to don a bathing suit right this very minute. But instead of it being just a mere thought, the truth is that the skin revealing time of year really is just around the corner.
And, yes, setting weight loss or get-in-shape goals really are key to achieving the swimsuit bodies we all desire. But wouldn’t it be much more helpful if we had a clear vision of what results our hard work might churn out? Like, a photo of our brand-spanking new, buff bodies?
Well …. you CAN have it. Just check out WeightView.com, a site that allows you to upload a photo of your current self and plug in your weight loss goals. The result? A specially altered picture that allows you to see what your fab self might look like should you commit to eating healthier and pumping some iron.
Talk about inspiration, right? In the April issue of SELF magazine, one writer hung the photo at her desk as a reminder to hit the gym after work.
Technology … whatever will they come up with next?
(Hmmm … something that involves calorie-free, chocolate lava cake … please?)

“There is a subtle difference between a mission and a promise. A mission is something you strive to accomplish — a promise is something you are compelled to keep. One is individual, the other is shared. When a mission and a promise are one and the same … that’s when mountains are moved and races are won.” — Hala Moddelmog, President and CEO of Susan G. Komen for the Cure
Is it weird that I just watched “W” (a satirical movie about George W. Bush directed by Oliver Stone) and actually had sympathy for the guy? Not sympathy in a oh-you-and-your-administration-are-responsible-for-the-current-state-of our-economy-(a dismal one)-a-misdirected-war-politics-in-its-most-despicable-form-and-I-could-go-on-and-on kind of way. Deep breaths, deep breaths.
But, instead, in a, gee-that-guy-could-of-used-a-hug-from-daddy kind of way.
Reason #8,480 why George W. Bush should have never been president: He had a bone to pick with daddy-o.
I am watching The Biggest Loser right now and I think this is something you should all check out. What better incentive is there to lose weight when you know you can do it and help others?
