Running for Life by Lisa at Early Morning Run

October 6, 2011

Today’s guest blog post is from Lisa at Early Morning Run. I asked her to share her inspiring story while I spend a few days wedding dress shopping with our Lean Girl & Bride Kara. While I’d run on the treadmill regularly, Lisa is the reason I started running. She is who I blame thank for encouraging me to run races, and ultimately inspired me to run the NYC Marathon in 2009. I don’t know anyone else who loves running as much as Lisa does or anyone who is as big of a fighter as she is. Here’s her story. First, I want to thank Grace for inviting me to write a post for this amazing blog – Lean Girls Club. I love reading this blog and am incredibly blessed to be able to call Grace a friend. She is such an inspiration and incredibly supportive, I don’t know what…

This ‘New Girl’ ROCKS: Zooey Deschanel

September 25, 2011

This week was Fall TV Time! Or whatever it is it’s called. TV premiere week. Or the start of the new TV season, I guess. You can tell I don’t watch that much TV. I don’t even have cable — just Season Two of Mad Men on DVD and a fondness for Saturday morning cooking shows on PBS. But I did tune in for one premiere: New Girl, 9/8 Central Tuesdays on FOX. It was a little awkward, as most pilots are, but it had some good lines about “reverse Mormons” (I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t used that one before… don’t ask why…) and a “stripper with a heart of gold.” That last one hit me funny because I’m pretty sure one of my former roommates owns the domain name hookerwithaheartofgold.com. Or she did at one point, at least. I’m also pretty sure another of my former…

Meet Newest Lean Girl & Bride: Kara

September 7, 2011

I’m nine months away from embarking on the greatest challenge of my life: marriage. But an almost equaling daunting task awaits me in those months leading up to it: preparing for a wedding.   Now, I should tell you, I’m not one of “those girls.” You know, the ones that had their dress picked out, color scheme decided and fairytale predicted by the age 10. No, for me a wedding is a by-product of getting married; it’s something I’m excited about, sometimes stressed but not something I eat, breathe and sleep. While I could care less about centerpieces, floral arrangements and seating charts, one thing I care deeply about is the way I will look.   I’ve never really had any motivation before to stick to a strict exercise/nutrition. I’m not fat, or even chunky; I’ve been told on more than one occasion that I look like I’ve lost weight…
