* Harsh language in post!

So , as I’m sure many of you have noticed – my focus has changed. I’m concentrating more on lifting than I am running. I know people have noticed because I’ve lost many “runner” followers on social media. So what does this mean to me? 

Not a fucking thing! 

I am Dawn, I am the same person I was when I was running and the fact you no longer find my content interesting I’m giving Zero Fucks! 

So for all you new followers – Welcome! I still recipe destroy , I still give my opinions on stuff and I still workout. 

My biggest changes lately is in my nutrition – I’ve almost completely forgotten the fact that I’m a RNY patient . I focus solely on hitting my macro targets from my peeps over at Avatar Nutrition. I’m on a reverse diet and I’m eating 2065 calories a day – my bariatric surgeon would lose his mind . My last check in with Avatar looked like this Weigh in day.

But what does all this eating mean? Well number 1 , I am adequately fueled for my lifts which are getting bigger each week! I started out squatting 95lbs and today I did 185lbs​

Also this week I PR’d my deadlift at 245lbs 

Go Me! I feel good , I eat good and I look good (strong) 

At this point I’m almost considering NOT running my 100k trail race in May simply because I don’t want to. It just doesn’t interest me at all right now. So if this means I’m no longer allowed to be friends with my running crew- then I guess we were never really friends to begin with right? 

All I can say is what I’ve always said “Just Do You ” who the hell cares. I am not defined by the number of followers I have – if this paid my bills then maybe I would? At this point in my life my focus is to just be the healthiest fittest 47 year old me I can be! 

So to all my friends out there thanks for sticking with me because who knows what I’ll get myself into in the near future? Change is good!
