A Los Angeles native who has a passion for healthy living, recipe development and enjoying life to the fullest. I grew up being an active child (hello swimming, water polo, surfing, basketball, dance…you name it). In my late teens and early twenties, I developed a severe drug addiction and in 2011, after completing 4 months of rehabilitation, I found myself gaining upwards of 60 pounds in just a few short months.
I spent the next several years in a tormented spiral of loving everything sobriety had brought to my life, but also being miserable about what I had become physically. I had traded one addiction for another, reached the highest weight I had ever been, and was embarrassed to go out in public.
In February of 2016, at almost 5 years sober, I knew it was time to make my next big life change. I had conquered my drug addiction and now it was time to conquer food.
I created my Instagram @runningwithfrosting as a way to share my weight loss journey with others. As my path towards better health has expanded, so has my desire to share that with others. I have found a love and passion for food, cooking, recipe testing, fitness & a joy for healthy living.
I can’t wait to bring you all along on the journey!
