what I’m meal prepping this week + new mini-series!

Hello, hello! I hope you’ve all been having easy weeks so far! I am currently writing to y’all through a mid-week headache and fingers tightly crossed for the rest of the week to go by quickly. This week has been busy since school started this Monday – having all the students back makes the days go by fast but I’ll be darned if I’m not running around like a chicken with my head cut off all day.

vegan taco stuffed sweet potatoes!

Happy Wednesday, y’all! I’m super excited about today’s post because this is my first original recipe! I know this concept of taco stuffed sweet potatoes is nothing new, but it’s one of the first recipes I thought up on my own without referencing another recipe. It turned out pretty well, so I knew I had to share!

what I’m meal prepping this week

These last few weeks have been crazy with traveling, partial weeks due to holidays or weather… but I’m finally getting back on my meal prepping train – and lemme tell ya, it’s much needed. I’ve missed having a routine with both meals and exercise – I’m trying out a barre class tonight and I’m really excited about it! It’s been a while since I’ve done barre so it’ll be fun to incorporate into my summer fitness routine.

this is what high functioning anxiety looks like

this is what high functioning anxiety looks like

Hello, hello, loves! Welcome back to another Wellness Wednesday. Today I’m shedding some light on high functioning anxiety, which technically isn’t considered a mental disorder, but I still thought it was important to talk about. During the times my anxiety isn’t quite so high, I consider myself to be someone with high functioning anxiety – solely because my anxious tendencies always exist, but might not present themselves to the point of panic/anxiety disorder. The thing about those with high functioning anxiety is that we function rather well – we tend to use it to propel ourselves forward and as motivation for success rather than sit in fear. However, the toxic mental processes are still there, but we’re just better about hiding it behind a smile. So what exactly does high functioning anxiety look like?

my favorite gym workout

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a workout with y’all, so I wanted to post one! And since tomorrow is National Fitness Day, I thought it would be a perfect day to do so. This is one of my favorite workouts for when I exercise on my own. It is going to require some gym equipment + a few other at-home workout items, but there are almost always modifications to make it fit with the resources you have!

wellness wednesday: mental health awareness month

wellness wednesday: mental health awareness month

May is one of my favorite months here on the blog because I love getting to recognize one of the aspects of health + wellness I’m most passionate about: mental health. I’ve never been quiet about my struggles with anxiety + panic attacks, but about two years ago – when I revamped the blog – I posted about my personal struggle with anxiety. When I realized how good it felt to open up about my anxiety and saw how many people it touched, I promised I would continue to be a voice for those that still felt unable to speak out.
