"She decided to start living the life she'd imagined." "No more excuses, no more some days, or maybes or eventually." "I'm living NOW which means accountability for my health and wellness is not some future far off goal, it's already begun." "I only have one life and I want to enjoy living it healthy and strong for as long as possible!"
Erin Smith is the author behind the blog GirlGoneVeggie which she started shortly after deciding she wanted to become a vegetarian. At 20 years old Erin took a good hard look at her nutrition and fitness decisions (or lack thereof) and realized she didn't like the path she was on. Making the decision to take control of her health she cut meats, fast food, trans fats, and overly processed foods from her diet and started making it a priority to get her body moving and get in shape. GirlGoneVeggie chronicles one girl's quest to achieve optimum health, both mentally and physically, by eating balanced meals, breaking a sweat, and finding the beauty in everyday life. She hopes to lead by example and empower others to make small, easy changes that lead to big, long-term benefits. Her blog follows her life with her fiance, being a college student, puppy lover, bargain hunter, novice runner, and Pilates enthusiast. Erin is constantly updating her Twitter and Facebook with useful links, fun facts, and random musings. She'd love to hear from you!
