2020 was a hard year for all of us mentally. I was so excited when 2021 hit, but honestly it has just been 2020 2.0. Between everything going on in the world, working full-time, going to grad school full time, and my own mental battles I really let my own health journey slide, both mentallyContinue reading “IMPOSTER SYNDROME”

Well, since we are in Quarantine in some of the strangest days of our lives, I decided to dust the cobwebs off the old blog, and breathe some life back into it. A lot of this extra free time has brought some positives. For one it has reminded me that I have been neglecting someContinue reading “Finding balance”
So if you can’t tell I seem to only be able to update this thing when I am feeling good/motivated. And If I am being honest, well it has been a while since I have felt either of those things. The truth is it is easy to keep your fitness blog/social mediaContinue reading “Rock Bottom”
New Year new….
Anyone else feel like this? I know I do. As we enter a new year, I am feeling a mix of emotions. I feel excited for a “fresh start”. I feel hope for the future and the unknown. I feel thankful for my health, my friends, and my family. But I also can’t help butContinue reading “New Year new….”
No Days Off December and other things.
If you follow my Instagram at all (foreverlastingymclass) you may already know that I am doing a personal No Days Off December challenge. And if you don’t follow me and read this blog..why aren’t you!? Just kidding…. I had wanted to get things in gear back in the beginning of November–but couldn’t really find the motivation. IContinue reading “No Days Off December and other things.”
I am sitting in my favorite local café writing this, with a big hoodie on, my 10 year old UGG boots, and with hot cup of butternut squash and apple soup. This can only mean one thing-it is officially ‘fall’ and I officially haven’t updated this thing since August (oops). After my surgeryContinue reading “Shifting Goals”
On pity-parties, set-backs, and comebacks
In case you haven’t noticed, I have been quiet lately. My inspirational quotes have been sprinkled only sparingly, and there is a ton of extra room on my camera roll where my gym selfies would have been. A month ago, however, that was different. I was on top of the world. I had just finishedContinue reading “On pity-parties, set-backs, and comebacks”
Pretty much my entire life I dreaded summer. Not because I didn’t love the sunny weather, time off from school, picnics, and ice cream. I didn’t dread summer because I loved winter and snow–I didn’t dread summer for anything summer did. I dreaded summer because of me. I dreaded summer because of the wayContinue reading “Beach Bod”
Being on a diet is hard– ( being fat is hard continued)
This is part two of my “Being Fat is Hard” rant. If you missed part one check it out here. Welcome to my pity party. I apologize in advance for the lack of cheese and crackers and lays potato chips with French onion dip. (Omg, how good would that be right now?). It’sContinue reading “Being on a diet is hard– ( being fat is hard continued)”
I can’t. I can’t exercise. I can’t get to a gym. I can’t do Crossfit- that’s for fit people. I can’t stick to healthy diet. I can’t run a 5k. I can’t finish a Spartan race. I can’t survive a Ragnar race. I can’t lift heavy weights. I can’t finish that workout. I can’tContinue reading “I can’t “
