I’M SO GLAD YOU’RE HERE! Wowee! This has been a LONG time coming! Welcome to my new space! I’m so excited you’re here and that I can finally share this with you. I cannot wait to begin posting funsies for you all again. First, let me invite you to take a look around and allow me to give you the grand tour! If you haven’t already been to my homepage, please take a moment to check it out. There are links to every page of my site on the homepage so, it’s a one stop shop! Also, as I mentioned, I now have a “services” page where you can learn more about the specific work I’ll be doing as a nutrition coach and, eventually, running and triathlon plans. I say eventually because I’m currently still in the process of studying for my Certified Personal Trainer certificate. I hope to have that completed in another month or two, but more on that later. If you’re new to my site feel free to visit my “about” page to learn a little more about my story and how Askew Nutrition & Fitness came to life. I also have a library of blog posts to the right of the page here that you’re welcome to read through. Most of the content currently on this blog was imported from my previous blog Priscilla Loves to Run, but there’s some fun reading in there. Now, let’s get to the good stuff! I have missed you all so much! I can’t tell you how

Priscilla Loves to Run is Rebranding! All posts prior to this date were imported from Priscilla Loves to Run Well well well! Look who’s still alive…..me! I feel like I always start my blogs like this, “It’s been so long since I’ve checked in buuuut”. Well this time it’s true! I think it’s been about 6 months since my last post. I have to be honest with you guys. I haven’t posted because I wasn’t really sure I wanted Priscilla Loves to Run to continue on. I’ve spent the last six months really thinking about what I want from this blog. I love sharing with you guys! I love the friendships I have forged through the blogging community. I love the fit friends I made through the running and triathlon community, and I love being able to connect with people across the globe on social media. But, I just found myself in a rut after Ironman. Things slowed down, life was little more dull, and I felt like I was a bit lost. I came to the realization that I just wasn’t motivated. Like, at all! It was so hard for me to find motivation to share healthy tips, training updates, or even to feel included in the world of blogging any longer. The harder I tried to get back into blogging the more it felt off. When I started this blog I had four goals in mind: Find an outlet to talk about my training [before my husbands ears fall off] Share my

Virtual Coffee Date: Strong Fitness & Race Entries Good morning babes and happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderfully active weekend! It’s been a while since I’ve posted a virtual coffee date and the last one was so much fun. So, today, I thought we’d get caught up over a virtual cup of coffee! I’ll be sipping on a Vanilla latte (my fav). If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you all about my latest sweat date with the Dallas Fitness Ambassadors at Strong Fitness. This was the first group workout I’ve done with them since tearing my ACL. I was so wrapped up with Ironman training earlier in the year that I didn’t have very much spare time for funsies like this. Post Ironman I was all kinds of beat up and honestly, I was a bit scared of doing one of these group workouts not knowing how my knee would hold up. Since we decided not to operate and reconstruct my ACL I’ve realized that I just need to get back out there. I’ve been incorporating more and more weight bearing exercises the last couple of months with the help of my knee brace. So, I thought it was about time I came out of my shell and had some fit fun with the girls again. I’m so glad I did too! This event was so much fun! Strong Fitness is a Crossfit style gym. They offer much more than crossfit though. For our workout we did some interval work mixing things up

Hey there babes! Wow! It has been a while since I’ve checked in. If you’re reading this, thanks for stopping by! Since Ironman things have been pretty slow in my life. I’ve been laying low, not training or doing anything really. I’ve actually been working on a few blog posts, but my computer died a couple of weeks ago and I had to buy a new one. That thing was on its last leg! We sure did make it last as long as we could, but with two kids, it became saturated with viruses and….CAPUT! I’m back up and running now and hope to start posting all the goodies I’ve been working on. I’ve got some really fun things coming up and I’ll be SURE to share all of that with you. A while back some of my fellow Dallas bloggers and I got together for a summer potluck hosted by the fabulous Dixya from Food Please and Health. Dixya sure knows how to throw a party! She really made things easy for us. Be sure to check out her tips on how to host a potluck.   Everyone brought a dish or two to share and we had some really awesome sponsors. When I first walked in I was in awe of the magnificence of the food displayed in Dixya’s dining room. It’s a bit intimidating when you’re joining food bloggers, but MAN was the food worth it.  We had the most delicious lamb from Nourish with Lamb. Dixya prepared two dishes for us.

Race Report – Ironman Texas 140.6

This post is dedicated to my husband, Jason Askew.  Without his support, I wouldn’t have been able to do any of this. Credit for all pictures in this post also goes to him 😉 Oh my gawd Becky! I am an IRONMAN!!! Ahhh! I still doesn’t feel real. There is something so humbling about achieving a goal you once thought was impossible. It’s like, you totally feel like a badass and proud because you know you worked your butt off to get there, but at the same time it just feels like you were given a huge gift and you’re just incredibly overwhelmed with gratitude. I used to think of Ironmen athletes like they were the unicorns of endurance sports. Just to be in the presence of one made me excited. They felt celebrity-like! Today, I look at myself and know how silly that is. I’m just a normal person. I’m not a super athlete. I’m not exceptionally fast. In fact, I’m just your (sub)average back-of-the-pack age group athlete, but I am an Ironman! Ordinary people CAN do extraordinary things. I’m so incredibly excited to be sharing this post with you and I hope it brings confidence and inspiration to some of you out there who may be feeling like those big scary goals are out of your reach because believe me, they are not. So, without further ado, here is my 2017 Ironman Texas Race Report. It’s a long one so grab a snack and enjoy! Pre-Race Thursday 04/21
