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”
Hello readers! I’ve been spending the last couple of days planning some content – specifically wellness related – and I’m so excited to start working on it for y’all! 2019 has truly been a huge year in terms of lifestyle changes for me, but I can say I have genuinely been feeling my absolute best because of it. And, as always, my vision for this blog is to help y’all do the same. I’m hoping that by sharing what I’ve been doing + the changes I’ve seen will help inspire y’all to make any changes that you have been wanting to make.Continue reading “my current exercise routine, spring 2019”
If you are unfamiliar with the term “flexitarian” (much like I was until I looked it up not long ago), it is also known as “semi-vegetarian.” In the past month I made some major changes to my diet, which has included focusing on a primarily plant-based diet (I make more vegan options than vegetarian) but I still eat meat every now and again, but no more than only a few times a month. This shift started to come about after writing the Wellness Wednesday post The Power of Plant Based, which prompted me to further my research + understanding past a biased, seemingly fear-tactic based documentary.Continue reading “I’m going flexitarian, and here’s why”
Welcome back to another Wellness Wednesday, friends! It’s been a while since I’ve talked about mental health but it’s been on my mind quite a bit lately. For once in my life I feel like I have a pretty good handle on my anxiety, but it’s definitely taken a lot of discipline + self-evaluation to get to where I am. I take a mild medication for my mental health issues and I have no shame about that – however, I do think that it takes more than a couple pills a day to truly manage anxiety + depression.Continue reading “overcoming anxiety outside of medication”
It’s Friday, folks, and it’s already spring break season! For me (even though I’m not a student anymore) this time of year tends to be a reality check when it comes to my health – am I where I wanted to be? Have I been as disciplined as I should have been? Regardless of the answer, I try not to beat myself up. Instead, I use it as an opportunity to learn what has or hasn’t worked for me and what I can fix moving forward.
When it comes to my workouts, having a motivational playlist is a must. I feel like it’s no shocker that a playlist can really make or break your workout – for me, having a playlist that excites + pumps me up increases the chances that I’m going to follow through with it, so I wanted to share my current workout playlist!Continue reading “my motivational playlist”
Happy Wednesday, readers! I was a little quieter in February, but I’m working on planning some fun content for y’all for March, starting with a simple post about what I keep in my gym bag!Continue reading “wellness wednesday: my gym bag essentials”
Happy Wednesday, readers! I hope you are all hanging tight to some of the fitness goals you set for yourself in the new year!
