[Have you entered my Simply Protein giveaway? Enter here!]

Plus one of my own.

Two important things to address today. I want to share the wrap-up of the Blogger Post Secret Project and fill you guys in on what’s going on for me in the next few weeks. To a certain extent, I want to maintain my privacy, but there are some things I’m willing to share with you all since you’ve been such a huge source of strength and support for me.

WIAW: WH Action Hero

Have you ever applied for something or entered a contest with no real confidence that you’ll be chosen, hired, or randomly selected? It’s a long shot, but it’s worth reaching for. It gives a goal, something to hope on and dream about.

Well, this is how I felt when I heard about the Women’s Health Action Hero search about 6 months ago (before all this injury and health nonsense, mind you). Women’s Health put out a call to their readers asking for influencers across the nation that value health and wellness, love running, positively influence and connect with others, and are making a difference through their interactions on social media to apply to be a 2015 WH Action Hero. When I read the requirements, I decided to apply. I knew their would be thousands of applicants, but I thought I’d just go for it. You can’t accomplish what you don’t give a try!

WIAW: An Update

Hi everyone! Well I have lots of food to share with you this week since last week I didn’t feature a recent eats component of my WIAW. But before I get to my full day of eats and then recent eats, I wanted to update you all on what’s going on with me lately.

The amount of love and support that I receive from you all makes me feel like I have a responsibility to fill you guys in. Especially since I’ve opened you up to you all so much in the past few weeks. As I alluded to last Friday, a decision was made for me, that should have been my decision to make, and I’ve been very much affected by it.

The Hardest Post I’ll Ever Write

As the title suggests, this is one of the hardest posts I’ll ever have to write. And honestly, it probably won’t even come close to conveying everything I want to say. It’s a start though and that’s what matters.

Over the past few years I’ve alluded to some personal struggles on the blog. With food, with exercise, with weight, and especially with my OCD and anxiety. I’ve shared a little bit but have always remained sort of aloof about it all. Not because I don’t think others could relate, but frankly because there is immense guilt and shame surrounding everything I’ve gone through.
