About

Welcome to Good For You!
This blog is dedicated to healthy living.  I want to share part of my weight loss, food, and fitness journey with you.  That includes my workout habits, good food I eat, things I experience, and everything I learn along the way. 

My name is Cate and I am a 25 year old graduate of Florida State University with a degree in Theatre and Psychology.  I live in the fabulous city of Chicago and am working to figure out what I am going to do with my life.  
November 2008 and August 2011
In January 2009 I decided that I needed to make a change in how I live my life.  I have lost over 100 pounds and 40 inches off my body and am living a healthy, happy life.  
My journey has not been easy the whole time, there are ups and downs, like everything else in life, but I try to focus on the good moments and successes I have had.  I am not a professional or anything and still have more to lose, but I have discovered some healthy tools for living that have worked for me and wanted a place to share my story.
I am working on living my best life and good food, supportive people, exercise, and a positive outlook are helping me do just that.

I love running and have completed several road races, including three half marathons and a marathon.  I try to eat a balanced diet, but make sure to enjoy sweet treats and try not to cut out any specific type of food.  I like to stay well informed and learn new things about health, research studies, foods, the environment, technology, fun facts, etc.

This blog is dedicated to that, because I believe that everyone deserves to be good to themselves, and live a happy, healthy life!
