Hey all! Thanks for visiting my page!!! In case you wanted to know a little bit more about my and why cancer is a big cause of mine, read on:
In January 2010, an embarrassing comment from a teacher and a remembered promise to my deceased mother who passed away from cancer in June 2009, set me out on a weight loss journey to get healthy, shed pounds, become fit and regain a passion for life. I ended up accomplishing all of that in addition to discovering a passion for fitness, good nutrition, health and wellness. After losing 85 pounds at home through hard work, sheer dedication and clean-eating, this led me to become certified a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist. I'm a firm believer that there is no secret, no potion, no trick. You simply must work out, eat clean, repeat, repeat, repeat and you’ll get there.
I am also the owner and writer of Cherie Runs This, a health and wellness weight loss/get fit blog I maintain as a way to inspire and motivate others to begin their own journeys to the fit life. Always honest and putting it out there for all to read, I take a common sense and sometimes tough love approach to the ups and downs, ins and outs and trials and tribulations that happen along a weight loss journey. Whether making you laugh, cry, nod your head in agreement, or shake your head in disbelief, I strive to show you that you don’t have to be a celebrity endorsed by a weight loss company or a contestant on a weight loss show—you can be you and you can lose the weight and get fit with your own gumption and dedication.
And of course I do a lot of that through not only eating clean and lifting weights, but running! :)
I want to raise money to help all of those who have been touched by cancer. I can't save my mother, but she is on my mind every single day. This is my way of giving back to others dealing with or surrounded by this awful disease. Please consider helping me with a donation to Our Clubhouse! My goal is raise $350; anything you are able to donate is greatly appreciated!
