After noticing that the first thing I look at when checking out a new blog is the About Me section, I realized that I need to get one for my own!
So, here goes:
My name is Lee and I am 32 years old. I am not exactly sure how that happened! I live in Atlanta, GA with my husband Jason and our Golden Retriever, Murphy. Jason and I got married in June of 2010. I am originally from the Washington, DC suburbs and moved to Atlanta on a whim about 8 years ago.
When I was younger, I was overweight and when I was in my late-20’s, I struggled with disordered eating and got quite thin. I think I’m finally almost to the point where I am comfortable in my own skin and comfortable with what I eat and don’t eat. Sure, I still have moments, but food and I finally have a pretty decent relationship. It took a long time.
At some point, I got into running. In college, I used to run but never more than 2 miles. Now, I run a lot. To date, I’ve run one full marathon, seven half-marathons and several shorter races. I’ve run the ING Georgia Half-Marathon for three years in a row and don’t see my streak stopping anytime soon.
Despite the name, I don’t think In My Tummy is necessarily a food blog. I definitely don’t have the patience to photograph and post everything I eat, so when you see pictures of food, it’s probably my dinner and probably something from a recipe or something I’ve created. I mostly just write about what’s on my mind, sometimes food and health related, most of the time, not.
