About Me

Hi! My name’s Brittany, and I’m a health nut (mostly!).

I wasn’t always that way, though.

For most of my life, I ate whatever I wanted. And when I was young, that worked just fine. I could down a McDonald’s double cheeseburger, fries, a drink, and a cinnamon roll (extra icing, please!), and never gain a pound. When I was even younger, my doctor told my mom, “Feed them everything, give them extra calories, just make them eat!” because my brother and I could never gain weight.

Please, someone feed the pale, scrawny child.

Then came puberty.

The weight crept on slowly, and it really didn’t make a difference until college. I managed to gain about 20 pounds between freshman year and graduation. Not THAT bad, you say. And you’re right.

But it was 20 pounds of 3am cheeseburgers, fried food at the sorority house, and gallons upon gallons of the sweetest, sugariest (yeah.. not a word) drinks bartenders could serve up. Oh yeah, and plenty of cake batter ice cream from Cold Stone.

I graduated, got into the working world, and still ate the same, still drank the same, still weighed the same. After about a year out of school, I decided it was time for a change. So I went cold turkey. With everything.

It took me 3-4 months, but I got back down to my pre-college weight.

I bought these shorts in the 12th grade!

A month or so later, I moved from Tampa, FL to Los Angles to chase my dreams (no, not to be an actress), and I now work for a reality TV/documentary production company. More than a year later, I’ve managed to keep the weight off (without yo-yo-ing once!) by eating healthy, staying active, and learning to manage my time (I work way more hours now than I ever have… but I love my job!).

But I still enjoy the occasional margarita. And the Mexican food that usually accompanies it.

Hey… life’s short. But my runs aren’t.

So here’s me today, staying active… and most importantly, having fun:

After taking Richard Simmons' exercise class!

Hiking in Griffith Park

After my first 5K race, the Down 'N Dirty Mud Run!

Wine tasting in Solvang, CA (where Sideways was shot!) Okay... technically this isn't staying active.

      The mud run is in Santa Clarita, and they’re doing another in April. I’ll have to post something about it later on!

    I love your blog Brittany! Liz was right when she said you are super skinny now! DAMN! I’m looking forward to catching up with your life in LA more often and occasionally making fun of all the stupid things we all thought were cool at FSU :)
