Juice Cleansing & Why This Time It Just Wasn’t For Me

by 1 Comment Lifestyle

I cannot believe its already Wednesday! Its been an eventful month, which may explain why posts have been slim. For one, I broke my wrist. It still seems so crazy, but I did! Due to an unfortunate & strong downhill tug from the cutie pup I hang out with daily – I naturally braced myself for the fall with my hand and landed with a pop on my wrist. Eek – it still makes me cringe thinking about it! The biggest bummer is that I was planning to begin marathon training this past Monday, but because it…

Meal Prep Monday

by 3 Comments Lifestyle

Its Monday! I love Mondays. A new week means a new beginning and more opportunities to become who I want to be. That’s not to say Mondays aren’t hectic. We usually pack our weekends full and have family dinners each Sunday evening, so by the time we arrive home and crawl into bed Sunday night my time to meal prep for the week ahead has come and gone. Because of this, I’m usually left to eat whatever creations I come up with from all the produce and possible leftovers stocked in our fridge. This weekend…

Living Your Passion & Embracing Your Fear

by 1 Comment Lifestyle

I’ve always been an advocate for living a life you’re happy with – not how society tells you to live. I was saying “you only live once” way before the YOLO craze. Because of this, it might be the reason why I’m now back in school, why I took the chance to live in Hawaii or Sweden, or why my boyfriend & I said “why not?” and spent two months exploring beautiful Costa Rica. But two days ago I thought I had gone out of my mind. . Two days ago I did something I thought…

Today I Am Grateful For. . .

You know how life gets so damn busy that you’re just in the zone? You keep chuggin’ along, getting through each week, and then BAM – you’re thrown a curve ball. That perfect shirt you’re upset over because were searching for it in your apartment but can’t find anywhere. The other day when you got mad at your boyfriend for not calling you back when he said he would. The latte you sent back because it had only one shot but YOU NEEDED TWO. Remember all those times you had last week? They suddenly don’t matter…

The Good Gut Stuff

by 1 Comment Lifestyle

The last couple weeks I’ve been dealing with stomach issues – stomach cramps, a little nausea, etc – and unfortunately this isn’t something new. Throughout all of my teen and adult life I’ve been plagued with an aching stomach that occurs always at unexpected and inconvenient times [I mean, when is that convenient anyway?]. I’ve done many ‘experiments’, diet changes, elimination diets, stress management, and lots of other things that might help. Sometimes they do, most times in just a small way, but throughout those years I’ve been pretty fortunate that I’ve made many slow…
