Drink more water.

Try new exercises.

Get enough sleep.

Do more burpees.

Do more planks.

I’ve heard every single “fitness tip” in the book (and trust me, there are many more where those came from), and I’m sure you’ve heard your fair share of them too.

While many of them are smart and effective and we should be implementing them into our lives, I was recently reminded that unless you first wrap your mind around one very important concept, “the most important fitness tip you’ll ever learn,” if you will, then all the rest are almost meaningless.

You Don’t Find Time for Exercise, You Make It

dont-find-time-exercise-make-it

Do you ever feel totally scatter-brained? Like the world is moving a million miles a minute as you’re desperately trying to keep up? Like you’ll never find time for exercise.

That’s a little bit how I feel right now.

I think that tends to happen a lot around this time of year. It seems my schedule grows busier and busier as the weather gets nicer and nicer. (Does this happen to you?)

Anyway, I’m telling you this because even though I feel like I haven’t had a moment to come up for air lately, I’ve still been making it a priority to find time for exercise (And now apparently blogging, too. Go me!). Read More

Vegetarian Taco Recipe: Veggie Lentil Tacos

vegetarian-taco-recipe

If I could, I would invite all of you over to my apartment so that we could celebrate Cinco de Mayo together.

We could enjoy Mexican-inspired foods (like these vegetarian tacos), drink margaritas and chat about running and all of our other favorite fitness activities.

If I could, I would. But somehow I don’t think that you’d all fit in my tiny Brooklyn abode. Plus, I’d have to make a whole lot of tacos, and while I love you guys and I enjoy cooking, I’m not sure I could handle that much work.

So, for right now, the best I can do is share this totally scrumptious vegetarian taco recipe with all of you. Read More

Get in Shape for Summer (and Life): Hungry Runner Style

I have a confession to make.

So you know how I talk a lot about body image and how weight loss shouldn’t be the sole focus of our fitness mission?

Constantly having that message floating around in my brain and constantly writing about it started to make me feel like it would never be OK for weight loss to be a part of my own goals again.

If I’m telling you not to worry about losing weight, then what business do I have trying to lose weight?

But if I’m being honest, and I always will be here, weight loss—or actually, I should say fat loss—is absolutely a part of my goal right now. Read More

Famous, Fluffy Banana-Raisin Oatmeal

*Editor’s Note: This post was originally published on February 11, 2013. You are reading an updated version that more accurately reflects Hungry Runner standards. However, the recipe has not been altered in any way. Enjoy your oatmeal, Hungry Readers! 

Here it is. The moment you’ve all been waiting for.

OK, I’m exaggerating a little. Not all of you have been waiting. Or at least you just didn’t know that you were waiting for this.

But if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know that this has been a highly requested recipe, and it’s been a long time coming.

When I first started blogging, almost every morning I would post a photo of my breakfast on Instagram. Almost every morning it consisted of a big, gratuitously-topped bowl or jar of oatmeal. Almost every morning, at least one follower would leave a comment asking me for the recipe. Read More
