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.Continue reading “what I’m meal prepping this week”
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.

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!Continue reading “my favorite gym workout”
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.Continue reading “wellness wednesday: mental health awareness month”
Is anyone else ever amazed with themselves for making it through another week? lol I’ve been spending my day meal planning + organizing my grocery list. I got a lot of good feedback from the last post, so I wanted to share my meal plans with y’all again!
Happy Friday y’all! If you’ve been around the blog long, you know I’ve become a huge advocate for anti-inflammatory diets, but exactly what can trigger those inflammatory responses can differ from person to person. I already had some suspicions about what foods trigger a response for me, but I wanted to put those suspicions to the test!Continue reading “my food sensitivity results!”
Happy Wednesday! We’re half way through the week – if you’re anything like me you’re muttering “you got this” to yourself multiple times throughout the day. I’m finally back with a Wellness Wednesday post y’all will hopefully enjoy – this has actually been one of my most requested posts and I just now got around to feeling like I had a grocery haul worth sharing.Continue reading “grocery haul + what I’m meal prepping”
