Puffy morning face and welcoming this week’s calm before the storm ⛈
.
3 days until my final year of grad school [and final year of school 5ever 🙌] begins. I’ll be spending this week with 1. A massage (duh) and relaxing, preparing, blogging, reading... essentially cramming everything I possibly can into 3 days because once the semester starts #cya free time. But that’s ok because I’m that much closer to becoming a registered dietitian 😭🙌 if you’re starting school this week, good luck!! Let the chaos, stress, mental breakdowns, and questionable amounts of caffeine begin!!! I’m ready for it. 💕

I had every intention to go do fitness stuff today but then my bf was all “you should come watch a movie” and I was all
“well I was gonna go to the gym”
and he was all “ok that’s a good idea too!”
And I was all “ok if you insist I’ll come watch a movie.”
Lmao sooo better luck tomorrow.

#fitness ????? #motivation (or lack there of.) #balance ??? Or #lazy ...

This week’s meal prep: fajitas.. because it took 10 minutes to make, they force the consumption of vegetables and you can pair them with multiple things like beans, tortillas, and rice, and I can’t thing of a single time Mexican-inspired food has been a bad idea.🧐
-
I like simple, easy, and most of all, tasty! You will not catch me with a boiled chicken breast and brown rice ever again, no sir. What’s your favorite meals to prep?!
-
Well I have a cold. I’m sick and dying, so back to Netflix and kombucha as if drinking fermented tea will fix me. Happy Tuesday!!

I am welcoming my last week of my summer clinicals!! and while I have loved every minute of them, I am ready to bring on the next chapter. Also, I am ready to start brainstorming some blog ideas because in May I was going to have “so much free time this summer to blog” and... that didn’t happen. So if you have specific nutrition-related topics you’re interested in, let me know! Have a great and relaxing Sunday!

WEIGHING/MEASURING & TRACKING FOOD: is it necessary?
-
Food scales, measuring cups, measuring spoons, food labels, and nutrition apps are all tools that can be used to help you when it comes to understanding portion sizes, calories, and the macronutrient makeup of foods. These are tools just like body scales, tape measures, body mass scanners, free weights, treadmills, stair steppers, Zumba classes, yoga, (and the list goes on) that can be used to help you reach your health and fitness goals; whether that be weight loss, weight gain, better controlled blood sugars, improved cardiovascular health, or just overall improved health in general.
-
You have the ability to choose what tools go into your toolbox throughout your own journey. You decide what foods you eat, what workouts you do, what apps you use, and how you measure your progress. There are thousands of accounts on here that will tell you EXACTLY how you should workout, eat, and track your progress. However, no account, no coach, no doctor, no dietitian can force you to follow through with their recommendations. ✨ do you HAVE to weigh yourself daily? - No but it can help show you whether your weight is trending downward from week to week despite fluctuations.
✨ do you have to weigh your food? - no, but it can help better your understanding of portion sizes
✨ do you have to track what you eat in an app? - no, but tracking can help show you where your diet is lacking, and where it needs to be pulled back. It can show you how you can fit “fun” foods into your diet while still hitting your protein, fiber, and micronutrient goals.
✨ do you have to workout everyday? - no, but working out can improve insulin sensitivity, cardiovascular health, bone density, and overall strength and balance, as well as put you in a calorie deficit or help maintain muscle mass when you ARE in a calorie deficit and losing weight.
-
These aren’t things that have to be utilized everyday for the rest of your life, but they are options to get you on the right track. If weighing yourself or weighing food or tracking food at all is triggering to you and causes anxiety and/or binging, then absolutely stay away from those things...Cont. 👇

Happy Friday! This week has been hectic but hectic can be good 💕 I’ve stayed intentional with my food choices and have 2 more workouts left this week. I tend to give myself a “break” on the weekends which ends up meaning 2 days off from the gym (whether I worked out the rest of the week or not) and not being intentional with my food choices. This weekend I’m making the effort to get my last 2 workouts in for a total of 5 this week, and to eat foods I enjoy and also the foods that keep me feeling good.
Weekends count too, sometimes it’s easy to forget that.
-
If you struggle with food on the weekend, and you feel the need to go on a complete food bender, look at what you’re doing through the week.
- Are you trying to stick to an extremely low calorie diet that is leaving you feeling hungry every single day?
- are you cutting out all the foods you enjoy because your friend told you “that’s what you have to do.”?
- are you eating the same foods every single day because you aren’t sure how to fit other foods into a healthy diet?
- are you even giving yourself the opportunity to see results or are you giving up after 5 days?
-
✨ Be patient, make smart decisions, but don’t drive yourself to the point of insanity.

I just did this circuit back to back to back with no rest until my workout time was up! Goal was to keep my heart rate up and push hard. Had 45 minutes to get it done today and started with a 10 minute incline walk on the treadmill to warm up!

I’ve really been loving the full body HIIT sessions for the time being!

Happy Friday 💕

Find your people.

Sometimes I struggle to figure out which path I want to go down.
I look up to people who promote diligent work ethic, a “no excuse” mindset, and who are the best of the best thanks to the time and effort they put in every single day.

I also look up to the people who promote balance and creating a way to succeed without giving up parts of your life.
I love both views.
I love the grind, but I love what comes after the grind, and in between the grind.
I love the long days that are go go go from 6am to 11pm.
I also love the days where I’m relaxing and stepping away from it all.
So I find my people. The people I follow on here are people who come from both sides of the extreme. They are people whose messages ring loud with me, and whose personalities shine bright. I look up to some people to help push me outside of my comfort zone and remind me of the importance of goals; and I look up to some others to help keep me from taking life so serious and remind me it’s ok to be where I am in this moment. Neither side is wrong. They each have their place and they have their people.
So I hope you find your side, or your place in the spectrum, and I hope you find your people. I hope you find messages that ring true for you and that help push you to be the person you want to be... not the person you think social media wants you to be. I think it’s easy to get lost sometimes.

I’m not sure what the goal of this post was, just something sitting with me today. 💕 happy Friday eve!!!!!!

TAKE EVERYDAY AS YOU ARE.
-
I always encourage people to look at their days as a whole when it comes to their nutrition. Not every meal will be perfect, but that doesn’t mean an entire day has to be ruined. One of the positives of tracking macros (for myself personally) was learning that not every single meal had to be a carb, protein, and a vegetable in the perfect ratio. I could have a meal that was maybe a lot higher in carbs then later have a meal that was lower in carbs but higher in fat. Of course balanced meals are what we strive for, but maybe just start by working on balanced days. This can help take you out of an “all or nothing” mindset when it comes to your nutrition. I remember I would have days where having 1 “bad” meal, turned into a full day of overeating. I’ve now learned to look at my day as a whole and figure out where my shortcomings are and where I should be careful the rest of the day. For example, say breakfast is heavier in fat and protein from eggs and bacon, but lower in carbohydrates (no toast or pancakes lol); your next meal could maybe be a protein source paired with lots of fruit (or some sort of heavy carb food like rice/pasta/bread) so that you have a higher carbohydrate meal with minima fat. 😊 this helps balance out your day a little better so that 1 meal that you may consider a “poor choice”, actually ends up fitting into a well balanced, healthy day!
-
If you are really looking to make changes, or just improve from where you are now, it just takes putting in a little bit of extra effort.
✨Learn how to read food labels
✨Become familiar with the 3 macronutrients (carbohydrates, fat, protein)
✨Be aware of what your current diet looks like and where you can make changes
✨Familiarize yourself with portion sizes
-
Start small and meet yourself where you are at. 💕
