2014 Year in Review: On my own & running through this thing called life

2014 Year in Review _ Cherie Runs This

Some wise person once said, “Sometimes you just have to look back at your past and smile about how far you’ve come.” Seems legit. As a lot of you know, my husband and I got separated in the Fall of 2013. So my 2014 was my very first year in about 10 years that I was …

What does a personal trainer look like?

If I could find the picture, I’d take a screenshot of it. Somewhere under one of my pictures on Instagram, a sad, sad little being chose to passively make fun of me by saying, “You’re a personal trainer? LOL.” I won’t lie–of course that was one of those comments that makes you forget about all the …

2013: The Best Worst Year of My Life

The last day of 2013. I feel like I should do some grandiose, month-by-month, epic-like, (cue my movie voice) “Here it is: The Year in Review, 2013 Edition.” But ehh, I don’t feel like it. Annnnnnd 94,362,106,875 other bloggers are, so I’m not going to. Sing along to the tune of, “It’s my party and …

Get Busy Living…It’s a Wonderful Life.

Exactly one month ago today, I found myself at a major crossroads. I came home from work, sat alone on a bench in my apartment, and thought about my life. It was one of those moments where I thought, and this is straight from Shawshank Redemption, “I’m going to get busy living or get busy …

One Happy Little Personal Trainer.

I’m just going to say it–In my wee old opinion, I think I was due for some awesomeness in my life lately. Between dealing with all of the “Hey, guess what, ‘I’m baaaaack, Signed, Depression” stuff taking front and center in my life, it was just time for some rainbows and sunshine. This past weekend, …

Race Recap: Running of the Bulls 8K, crying at a race AGAIN, and coming full circle.

“And when all this is through, I’m planning on coming back better, stronger and faster than ever and taking the test in a few months.” Quick–who said that? That’s right–me! I’m testing you CRT readers that have been with me since way back. WAY back. It came from this post. And that picture came from …

There’s no crying in weight lifting.

Okay, there is a little bit of crying. At least for me anyhow, and I’m not really a crier. But as I said before–this whole weight loss/get healthy journey just brings me to it. There’s a crazy amount of emotion involved. Been through it? Then you know what I’m talking about! So yeah, sometimes right …

Dethroning the Cardio Queen

“You want me to renounce my throne? I will. [calling out to all of you] From this moment on, I renounce my throne. I’m no longer the Queen of Cardio. I renounce my throne! [looking at all of you] Does this make you happy?” Okay, I stole that from Coming to America. Somewhat. That movie …
