My name is Theodora. I’m a
29-year-old single lady living in NYC. Crap. I’m 30.
I love food. I used to think that I loved food too much, but I think I just loved the wrong foods. My diet was full of heavy, fried food and empty calories and my gym membership went unused month after month.
In 2009, I decided to change all that. I lost 50 pounds and gained a love for healthy food, exercise and myself that I didn’t have before. When I started blogging, I documented everything I ate and wrote about all of my workouts. Because I am a busy city girl, I don’t always cook–so you won’t find a ton of recipes here. Or really any, actually. What you will find is how I stay fit and happy in NYC.
In order to lose the weight, I followed these nutrition guidelines. Once I had dropped the weight, I relaxed my way of eating a bit, but I still love to fill my diet with lots of fresh produce, lean protein, healthy fat (mmm, avocado!) and whole grains. I try to eat in moderation these days.
This blog started its life as Losing Weight in the City but after accomplishing my 50-pound weight loss, I got really sick of the name and recently changed to Preppy Runner. You can read more about that here.
In October 2013, I became really super happy when I landed my dream job – running social media for Daily Burn. (Standard: this blog is a personal blog, and does not reflect the views of my employer.) I am a huge dork, and I am mildly obsessed with social media. I started this blog to teach myself more about social media, and I still consider it a playground to learn more about social and digital media. I love learning about new plugins and tools that can make my blog more accessible to readers and am always tinkering around with new blog toys.
I hope you enjoy what you read here! Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or just want to say hi!
