Food + card games πŸ‘‰πŸ½ pretty good sum up of the weekend 😝 Sunday's lunch in the sun was this huge cheese-less anchovy, olive + caper pizza πŸ˜πŸ• Don't think I've actually had a pizza since I was in Italy last May... I eat 95% gluten-free, so these kinda wheat-heavy meals usually don't settle too well with me πŸ™„ Forever torn between "common girl treat yourself it's all about balance" and "k not too keen on having a tummy ache all night, feeling tired, lazy & foggy-minded 😞" This weekend pizza won πŸ˜‚ but actually tummy ache wasn't too bad & only tea for dinner settled me perfectly so double win πŸ€— Plus pizza fuelled a sick 2hr leg day this morning so #pizzagains all the way πŸ‘πŸ• #pizzalove

Sunday spent strolling in the sun in this gorgeous mountain town πŸ™πŸ½πŸ‡«πŸ‡· Good food, good company, sometimes it's all about taking a step back and enjoying the simple little things in life. Forgetting about goals, to-do's, ambitions and just enjoying rn AKA pizza, cute canals + card games πŸ˜πŸ™ŠπŸ’™ #annecy

Salad + home fries for lunch in the sun in the mountains πŸ™πŸ½πŸ‡«πŸ‡·β˜€οΈ Weather was supposed to be crap but it was sunny and warm ~ Now off for a hike 😍 Happy weekend!!

STRESS is something I still struggle with a lot. I'm naturally more of the go-getter, A-type; my to-do lists are endless, I always have a million projects, goals & ambitions on my mind, and that's exactly how I like it - but obviously this keeps my body under constant stress. This type of stress has become somewhat of a standard, but what's difficult is knowing when it gets too much. Often times I don't realize it until my body gives me the physical signs. Today I could sense my eczema coming back, as well as my negative, critical, subconscious being annoyed that I haven't been doing enough, haven't been productive enough, haven't been good enough. This type of stress used to drag on sometimes for weeks, but even though I haven't learned how to avoid it all together, I know how to ground myself again. Tonight I'm in bed early with a tea, ready to do some light stretching before an early sleep. Tomorrow morning I will NOT be running around the apartment rushing to the gym like I have every morning this week...I need my morning journaling, yoga & me-time, for my freakin sanity πŸ™πŸ½ Take care of yourselves, and even more importantly, take the time to get to KNOW yourselves. Know your body & mind inside out and you'll always find a way back to peacefulness πŸ™ŒπŸ½ #yogaeverydamnday

Poke bowls for lunch at uni 😍 // salmon, rice, avo, seaweed, mango + edamame πŸ™ŒπŸ½

Alright time for a #realitycheck πŸ‘‡πŸ½πŸ‘‡πŸ½ It's so easy to get caught up in comparisons with others on social media. But it is so so damn important to remember that images on Instagram only show a 5 second snapshot of a person's life. It shows the flexed pics, good lighting, the happy moments, the "I just killed my workout" times that make it seem like everyone has it all figured out. No one posts Friday nights spent hanging out alone at home working, or "bad body" days feeling bloated. Hell no one even posts unflexed, unposed pics. Naturally we all want to post our highlights, fair enough, but that's all the more reason to scroll social with a grain of salt. Everyone has their ups but everyone also has their lows. We all have hips and tummy rolls when we slouch, we all have days where we think our lives suck, even those you look up to in envy. I freakin love social media, the people I've met through it, the motivational platforms its created... but it is NOT real life, don't ever let it make you feel any lesser of yourself πŸ™πŸ½ #formorerealityoninstagram

Blaaaah I accidentally set my alarm for 7:30 instead of 6:30 πŸ™ˆ So no yoga, meditation or journaling this morning, just running around the house, getting ready, preparing my smoothie to try get to the gym early enough to get a good leg day in before lectures πŸ€“ Still won't have as much time as I would have liked, but trying to bust out a dope leg session in only 1hr? Challenge accepted πŸ‘ŠπŸ½πŸ‘ŠπŸ½ #legday #letsgo // P.S. recipe for this baby is up on the blog πŸ˜‰ (link in bio)

For those who have followed me for a while know that I used to be very strict with with health/fitness regimen. I followed my gym & meal plans to the tee and left no room for flexibility whatsoever. The past few months have changed me in many ways, but most importantly, I've learned to really listen to my body, rather than my food tracking app or my gym plan. I've been loving trying new recipes, eating the food I feel like my body needs 95% of the time, and indulging in what my soul needs as well. I've also opened myself up to switching up my workouts if I feel like it, making sure that I remember that fitness should be FUN, not a scheduled chore. Although I'm currently on a weight lifting plan, I've been loving going on afternoon runs in the park as well. Yes I know cardio burns muscle, but I don't think my 30 min jog is to blame for why I don't look like @nikkiblackketter 😝 It's so amazing to be completely FREE cuz you know what, you ARE free, go do what makes you smile, what sets your heart on fire, cuz in the end, what is health even if you're not as happy as you can possibly be πŸ™πŸ½β˜€οΈ #motivationmonday
