“Hi what advice would you give to someone who wants to start running? :)”
Do just that- START RUNNING!
Awhile back, I made a whole page on my blog called the RUNNING FAQ and it has tons of great tips from various Tumblr runners, links to articles, running plans, and so much more!
I hope you find everything you need there! If not, feel free to ask more specific questions :)
“you run with all that makeup on?!?”
I didn’t put it on before I went running or anything haha. I had it on from school and was too lazy to take it off.
Posting this a little late, but I had a fantastic run tonight at sunset! I gave myself a little bit more time though, so I could get in a full 3 miles :)
I couldn’t ask for a more beautiful view, and a dirt running trail to go along with it! It’s going to be weird when I move away for college…I’m trying to appreciate it as much as I can right now!
I’m so incredibly sore right now, and I LOVE IT! It will be a long journey to get back to where I was before fitness-wise, but I’m already off to a promising start. I’ve slacked off a lot these past few months, and that’s okay! What matters is that I’m getting my shit together now! :)
AFTER 3 YEARS OF NOT EATING MEAT
I’M GOING TO INTRODUCE CHICKEN BACK INTO MY DIET
My first run outdoors in…what? 4 months??
AND I DON’T REMEMBER WHY I STOPPED RUNNING BECAUSE THAT WAS AMAZING!
I only got in 2.75 miles before the sun set, but I probably wouldn’t have been able to go much further anyways. Haha, but I was still pretty impressed with myself, especially in the 47 degree weather!
Today’s music playlist included:
“I wouldn't start the essay with a word, I understand you're attempting to grasp the reader's attention, but that tactic for speeches. 1800s - not 1800's, individual's actions - not individuals (it's possessive), word choice: grasping at our country doesn't really make sense, maybe use plaguing American instead? Also, I would reword your thesis, it's a little awkward. **Just offering some pointers to help.”
thanks but i literally wrote that intro in 10 minutes and my teacher was just checking for completion so i definitely intend on making some major revisions…haha
let’s spend our week nights eating cereal on the floor
when there is a perfectly fine table behind us.
we can go to the movies and sit in the back row
just to make out like kids falling in love for the first time.
we’ll paint the rooms of our house
and get more paint on us than the walls.
we can hold hands and go to parties we end up
ditching to drink wine out of the bottle in the bathtub.
and slow dance with me in our bedroom
with an unmade bed and candles on the nightstand.
let me love you forever.

“I'm struggling to eat over 1300 a day, and I exercise 5 days a week so I really need more. Any tips on how I can up my intake?”
Hello! I suggest eating more calorie-dense food to increase your caloric intake! Try to incorporate:
- nuts (make a yummy trail mix or buy one!)
- nut butters
- cheese (don’t be afraid of the saturated fat- your body needs that too!)
- whole eggs (don’t be afraid of the yolk!)
- oils! cooking your foods in olive oil can help increase your calories
These are some simple changes you can make in your diet, and the calories quickly add up! You may also try eating smaller meals scattered throughout the day so you don’t feel weighed down by the extra calories that your body isn’t used to. Remember, food is fuel! Don’t deprive your body of the energy it needs to preform at its best! :)
“Hey there! How is everything going? :) school? Boyfriend? Sports? It's been so long!”
Everything’s going relatively well right now! I have the majority of my college applications finished and submitted, and have even been accepted to one so far! I highly doubt I’ll attend Chico State, but it’s always nice to have the option :) As far as school goes, I’m keeping my grades up and kind of just going through the motions with the day-to-day routine. Nothing too exciting there.
I’m not planning on doing any sports this year, and although I’m sad I didn’t get to run cross country my senior year, I know everything happens for a reason. Maybe I’ll run in college!
Justin and I are really good! We’re approaching our one-year anniversary on the 15th, so that’s pretty exciting. We’ve been going camping a lot lately, which has been so relaxing and rejuvenating. Hopefully we can go to Lake Tahoe this winter and ski!
Sorry I haven’t updated in awhile; I was just letting myself have some time away from the constant mean messages. Regardless, I hope to be updating more frequently, but you can always find me on twitter (@char_garello) and instagram (@chargarello)! :)
finally checked this off my “now-that-i’m-18” checklist
I know this feeling so well. I know how it twists and turns inside of me, gnawing at everything I have, churning out an acid that makes me bitter.
I heard those exact words nearly two years ago.
"Can I have a kiss?"
And it all came back in a tsunami, crashing over me, enveloping every inch of me, and spewing me out as a tattered carcass.
You will never know how much it hurts to be killed with kindness and suffocated with love and strangled by guilt.
I’ve lost myself in the whirlwind of you, and this is all too familiar.
I can’t make the same mistake again.
I can’t forget about me this time.
