Fit in the Fall - Guest Post

So when Kait asked me to write a guest post this weekend, I was PUMPED! I read the blog religiously and honestly, we have a ton in common. We are kindred spirits in so many ways.

For example, we both have excellent fashion sense….


And we both love to run!

Sadly, I am not built to run, at all. I have to fight my build (daughter of a man who blocks out the sun and looks like The Fridge), crappy joints and rowing background (great way to add bulk, not so much speed). Another difference between my girl Kait and I, is that I do NOT have a natural passion for the healthiest of foods. I enjoy eating healthily and being in shape, but I do so because I love how it makes me feel. There have been weeks where I’ve thought, screw this I am dominating some pizza, oreos and peanut butter.

We also share a obsession with Fall! The cool crisp days that allow me to trapse around in jeans and my favorite MSU hoodie while picking apples and chugging apple cider? Running past trees losing leaves and not in 80% humidity? *sigh* I’m in love.

I’ve also noticed, however, that once the leaves start to change, my healthy diet becomes undoubtedly harder to stick by. Between tailgates and pumpkin spice lattes, I tend to start slipping slowly but surely. I’ve learned to cut myself some slack, and look up “skinny” versions of my favorite recipes!

Let’s be real, I will not give up my buffalo chicken dip or pumpkin flavored everything. I think I would become depressed if I sat down to kale chips and spinach while watching my Spartans blow out everyone else in the Big Ten. It’s just not the same!

So instead of sacrifice my waistline entirely (and only fit into sweatpants my boyfriend owns by November 1st) I search to the ends of the internet for healthier versions of my favorite treats, or trick myself into eating veggies at half time. Pinterest is a great place to start, and move onto google if necessary. It’s my little attempt at sanity, and not wanting to look like Charlie Weis come Christmas (not so jolly Santa Claus).

I hope this inspired a few people to look for delicious recipes, and I also hope/know that Kait and Andrew will straight whoop butt in the race this weekend!

So I leave you, clearly missing Kait’s witty(er) repartee, with one of my favorite game day noms. Enjoy, Bear Down and Go Green!
