My name is Nicole, I'm 21, 5'2 and I love health and fitness, it's a key element to my life. I have a true dedication to lead a healthy lifestyle, after being unhealthy and very overweight for 11 years. My blog is just one of the few things I do to keep me motivated. Tumblr has been a great place for me to find out new diet plans, work outs and to connect with others going through this with me.

Guacamole Using Powdered Onion & Garlic Recipe
Ingredients: One green avocado, half a tomato, 1/3 teaspoon onion powder, 1/3 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/3 teaspoon salt, 1/3 teaspoon pepper, and a dash of ground cayenne red pepper. If you like your guacamole on the spicier side just put in a few extra dashes of cayenne.
 Method: Slice up the avocado and mash it in a bowl to your desired consistency. Dice up the tomato and put most of it in the bowl with the avocado. Add the seasonings and stir it all together. Garnish with the leftover diced tomato and enjoy!

“As a child I never heard one woman say to me, “I love my body.” Not my mother, my elder sister, my best friend. No one woman has ever said, “I am so proud of my body.” So I make sure to say it to Mia, because a positive physical outlook has to start at an early age.”

Running is popular because it is accessible to mostly anyone, you don’t need to have a gym membership to run! Plus it gives you great results. Getting into running isn’t a walk in the park though (haha get it?) however there are some things you  can do to make running better for you. 
Before running:
Eat an hour or so before working out, preferably something with complex carbs. This will help you keep energized during your run. 
Drink water through out the day or morning before you run. You dont want to become dehydrated while running. 
STRETCH. Make sure you stretch before hand so that you dont end up pulling anything. I like to do a short session of yoga before I go running because it is a good warm up and gets my muscles ready.
 Find a route or set a goal. If you plan on running outside find a route that you like, you can google your city and running paths. If you are running inside on treadmill then set a goal for yourself as to how much you want to walk/run.
During Run: 
Listen to music that keeps you pumped up! this will make the time go by faster and its just fun lol. 
Set small goals. If I am running outside then I like to set small goals like “okay im going to run to that tree over there and not stop on the way” then I just focus on the tree and then take a break.
Start off slow! you will not be able to run 3 miles non stop if this is the first time you run. Start off with a walk then run combo and increase your time every time you run. 
After Run:
Cool down by walking. 
Keep hydrated.
Stretch again. 
Cool Things To Have as a Runner: 
Really good running shoes. You should always have good running shoes but sometimes its good to splurge a bit on shoes to motivate you to go out. 
A water bottle with a handle on it. I got mine at a sporting goods store. It allows me to strap the bottle to my hand so I can run easily with it. 
APPS! There are SO many cool apps for running! My favorite ones are: Zombies,Run! , C25K and map my run.
ipod/phone armband. This keeps you from having to hold them in your hand. 
Fitbit or Heart Rate Monitor. These will help you see your progress. 
So these are MY tips for new runners :) What are some of yours?
