I will be me...

I like McDonalds. I am obsessed with their grilled southwest chicken salad. And their French fries are basically my kryptonite. I even have a phone case that is a mock up of their French fries. I don’t care what people say about them. I don’t care what is “really in them” blah, blah, blah.

I’m a runner but I don’t need to look like one 24/7. I can wear high heels more than I wear running sneakers. I’m still a runner. I can wear clothes other than race t-shirts and running capris. I’m still a runner.

I do not have to give two flying fucks about crossfit. (Sorry to my Crossfit friends)

I do not have to care if my food is organic or not. I don’t have to care about Gluten if I don’t want to (and for the record, I don’t).

I do not have to try Beachbody or Wrap my body up like a mummy…just like you don’t have to care about Weight Watchers.

I don’t have to “stay out of bars” if I want to stay sober. I am a grown ass woman and I can put myself into any situation I want. I know what I can handle. I know what a temptation is & I know when I need to avoid it & when I’m ok with dealing with it. This is my battle, not yours.

I don’t have to pretend to like certain brands because like 99% of my friends on Twitter like that brand.  I mean seriously…I almost vomited trying to consume those things! They are NOT practical!

I don’t have to be an “ambassador” of something in order for my blog and my views to be relevant.

I don’t need to be anything but me. Take it or leave. Love it or hate it. I will be me and you will be you and that is what makes all of this so inspiring. Sometimes I get opened up to something that I didn’t think I cared about before, and vice versa. I don’t judge anyone for taking a different path on their journey…I respect it and commend it. It inspires me to take MY path, and in turn I hope that inspires you to take yours.

Now cue the beat...


  1. I read your blog because it is 100% you, not you hawking products or being the brand ambassador of something. I understand why people do that, but I like yours because you share honestly what you think all of the time.

  2. awesome post!! I have a "blog" but I have been reluctant to promote it because I feel like I don't fit into a mold. I am on this journey and will do it my way - no 2 journeys are a like and I love reading about your journey because of your approach. Keep it up!

  3. You're brutally, wonderfully honest - you....why would you want to be anything else?

  4. Word. Brutally honest and authentic. I love it.

  5. you are perfectly you! Stay you! love your blog. inspiration.

  6. " I am a grown ass woman and I can put myself into any situation I want. I know what I can handle."

    That's the ticket! Maturity plus cognizance equals empowerment. Brava!

  7. Very well said and I 100% agree with you.
