IMPOSTER SYNDROME

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”

BAD DAYS AND BROKEN PHONES…

Here is the story of the day that the treadmill ate my cell phone. Before I get to that, let me tell you about how this started. Today I cried in the dressing room. This morning though, was a different story. I felt pretty good. I was down a couple pounds on the scale andContinue reading “BAD DAYS AND BROKEN PHONES…”

Rock Bottom

    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….”

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.”

Shifting Goals

  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”

Beach Bod

  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)”
