july goals + habit tracker  |  healthy tips for your fourth of july celebrations

I’m so sorry that I completely spaced on June’s tracker – if I’m being honest I was very frustrated with myself and the lack of sticking to my goals, so I was nervous to followup. but, in my defense I injured my hip back in the beginning of may which made it hard to workout anything other than arms + core (which got so boring after a while). my hips are finally good enough to implement leg day again, but running is still very much so out of the question. but that to say, I’m back and ready to take control of my health again.

overall, june was a great month. it was my birthday month, and I feel very blessed by my friends and am full of hope and great expectations about what’s to come. but it’s finally hitting me that hard work really does make the dream work, so I’m using July to propel me to where I want to be – when you know, you know, right?

and we have a fun holiday coming up! I love the fourth of july so much, but if you’re trying to be/eat healthier, it can pose some temptations. today I’m talking about a few of the tips + tricks I’ve implemented myself to keep myself on track with my cleaner eating while still getting to indulge and celebrate independence day.

how I’m working more fruits + veggies into my diet

how I’m working more fruits + veggies into my diet

studies health + exercise science in college, sucks at eating fruits + veggies. not because I don’t like them, but they feel kind of easy to forget, or maybe I’m just not eating as healthy as I should be in the first place lol. I know a lot of times I mean well and will buy ingredients to make salads and what not, but then I either forget about it until the produce goes bad or I feel too lazy to take the time to wash + chop veggies. I choose to think it happens to the best of us.

the quotes that boosted my fitness motivation

the quotes that boosted my fitness motivation

ahhh, the gym. the place we love to hate.

it can be hard to find the motivation to drag ourselves over to the gym, I think for a lot of reasons, the main one in my mind being that we’ve equated exercise as punishment – punishment for what we ate, punishment for being overweight. as a result, we have broken perceptions + damaged views of the beauty of exercise.

My April Goals & FREE Mood + Habit Tracker

I can’t believe it’s practically April, already! March has been a good month – filled with a lot of busy weekends spent with friends + family, so I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun! March has been a good month as far as implementing some more structure into my life, especially as far as my health is concerned, so I’m excited to see how April will add to it.

My Top 5 Free Health + Fitness Apps

My Top 5 Free Health + Fitness Apps

I love how easy it’s become to log/track health with the use of apps. I’m guilty of loading so many apps on my phone to test out – unfortunately, there are quite a few that only offer a free trial but require a subscription in order to continue having access. However, if you’re someone that likes having guidance when it comes to your workout, you might find it worth it to download + pay for apps that provide workouts.

There are also some apps that help with stress + anxiety by providing different meditation and breathing techniques, but again – most times you end up having to subscribe after a 7- or 30-day trial.

But, here’s my list of my favorite free apps that I use to help track my health! I am not affiliated with any of these companies/apps.
