Historically I have always been a procrastinator. Lately I have been taking steps to actively take care of myself and that’s a very different feeling. For example, I have gone to the doctor and been diagnosed with PCOS and subsequently started working with a dietitian. Also I started to have back pain so I made… Continue reading Procrastinating
….whether or not you’re having fun. This week marks 7 MONTHS of me living by myself in my apartment. I have not stepped on the scale in the past two/three weeks, but the last time I did, the number I saw shocked me…in a bad way. Since moving to NC in 2016, I have managed… Continue reading Time flies
It has been a VERY long time since I have logged in to update. This past year has been full of changes: moved to a new state rented an apartment for the first time (with my best friend) explored some new cities and went to my first music festival moved into my own apartment got… Continue reading Making a change

I made mine vegan by using daiya vegan mozzarella cheese, but you are free to use whatever type of… Continue reading Spinach & Artichoke Quesadilla

I just finished my first semester of nursing school and while it has been an amazing… Continue reading Hey fit sister- get it together!
I am here echoing the sentiments of my sister tonight. After a few very touching conversations, and some truly not-so-nice internal thoughts about the current state of my body, I am ready to be better. This past year has brought about some pretty incredible personal changes for me. I finally moved out on my own… Continue reading Be better.
Wow, what a year! I clearly have not gotten into a regular writing schedule, but I’m going to work on it ;). To catch you all up, I got into nursing school!!!!! I start next week. I am currently looking up meals to start prepping as I will be at school from 8am-5pm on the… Continue reading 2017
A pretty incredible thing happened this morning. I showed up for the second follow up session with the trainer at my new gym (Retro Fitness – 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a great energizing workout environment). I anticipated a weights session so I did not wear a sports bra with a ton of… Continue reading Morning workouts are life
Slow progress is better than no progress, right?! I have been in a bit of a funk for oh….a month or so now? This morning, I broke out of it! I joined Retro Fitness – there is one just about 3 minutes from my house, so, it is definitely close enough to bike to when… Continue reading SLOW progress
