MOST RECENT

Long time no post. I’ve been recently working a lot on myself. I started saying positive affirmations to myself, even if at times I don’t believe them. I now have a boyfriend, who I’m not going to say much about because I am terrified of being judged. But he makes me so happy, which is such an unusual concept for me. I am still working on completely trusting that he won’t go off and break my heart, but I’m getting there. Tonight was a bad night. I binged a lot on gummy candy. I don’t even like it that much, it was just there. I bought it at the student store in the cafe because again it was there. Does anyone have any tips for not buying things that you know you shouldn’t that you know will make you go backwards? Long story short, I self harmed. I binged around 6:30 and didn’t send harm until 11:30. Yeah, my therapist who said that if I could wait until later in the evening and the urge to self harm would be gone? Yeah, sorry, not the way this works. I feel a bit better now but really guilty because I was a month and a half clean. I really need a way to control myself around these foods I normally binge on that doesn’t take it too far for me controlling everything. It seems like I’m very black and white on this and I hate it.

made a big bowl of pasta salad to portion out for lunch this week! so easy and saves so much time- just a mix of whole wheat pasta, corn, diced tomato, black beans, sautéed spinach, & diced avocado. and then made a sauce w olive oil, @simplyorganicfoods taco seasoning, chili powder, nooch, salt & pepper. and topped w sriracha when I’m ready to eat it :)

Enjoying this slow Sunday morning with all of my favorite breakfast essentials🍳 This weekend was spent celebrating 24 with friends on Friday and having a relaxing roomie Catan/movie night last night💕Birthdays are weird when you get older because most people don’t know it’s your birthday and the only thing people buy you is alcohol. Regardless, there is so much to be thankful for! 23 was a whirlwind of a year, but I’m excited to see what this year brings. •
Today is going to be spent in church, at the gym and being productive because it is my last week in my community rotation and there is a LOT to get done. Clinicals start next week👩🏽‍⚕️ Happy Sunday friends!!

Day 7: Self care #chasingjoyphotochallenge
I am going to finish what I started even though the challenge has ended..typical Ratch🙋🏽‍♀️Plus, self care is too important to ignore. The love we give to others can only be as big as the love we show ourselves. We cannot depend on another person or thing to make us feel worthy, beautiful, capable and adored. We owe it to ourselves to be our number one fans and believe that we are all of those and SO MUCH MORE. I am guilty of pushing myself to extremes and putting others/school/work first. Humans can only handle so much and eventually we get burnt out. If we don’t give ourselves that time to recharge, we can’t give enough of ourselves to others, our classes or our jobs. This week marks my 24th trip around the sun, and I am going to make sure I give myself plenty of self care this week. The older I get, the more I realize how important it is to slow down and appreciate everything our life has brought us. It could all be taken away from us in the blink of an eye. So this week, my self care is looking like: trying a new workout and swimming laps for the first time, making nourishing meals (like this pasta with tuna, avo, broccoli and tomato basil sauce from Trader Joe’s), face masks, meaningful mornings, lots of laughs with my gal pals and (hopefully) an earlier bedtime. For my birthday, all I want is for you all to practice some self care - you can thank me later💕

Day 6: Connect, Swipe 👉🏽for Day 5: Adventure
#chasingjoyphotochallenge
I apologize for playing catch-up today, but this felt like the right thing to do. One of my favorite ways to connect with people is through food - whether it is making a friend’s favorite dish, sharing a meal or having a heartwarming conversation over coffee. Food brings people together, and in doing so, connects us in a unique way. A friend of mine requested I make banana bread for her, but due to food intolerances, she asked for me to tweak my recipe to make them gluten-free and dairy-free. I have to say...for free-balling the recipe, I NAILED IT. And yes some of them are chocolate-banana muffins thanks to unsweetened cocoa powder. Should I post the recipe?🍫🍌

The second pic makes up for the day I missed, the prompt “adventure.” By far one of my greatest adventure was my trip to India in summer 2014, I was a sophomore in college. It was a service-learning trip for school where we worked in villages improving their health care system and teaching the importance of prenatal and maternal nutrition. Many women avoid fruits and vegetables when they are pregnant because they believe these foods will harm their baby. As a result, malnutrition and stunting are very prevalent in the villages. We taught the benefits of these foods and how the mothers could best support themselves to support their growing child. I learned more that summer than I did all throughout the rest of my college career. That trip also allowed me to connect with myself and other cultures in an extraordinary way. •

Day 4: Drink 🍵☕️🍶#chasingjoyphotochallenge
I’m the kind of person who is usually running out the door in the morning. I pack everything for breakfast, lunch, snacks, work and the gym before I go to bed. That being said, I usually like to drink coffee once or twice a week if I really need it or I will steep some tea at night too. This morning, I had a little bit more time so I got to make a matcha, cinnamon almond milk latte while waiting for my tea. I like matcha every here and there for its flavor and mood boost it gives me. The tea I’ve been drinking is called “allergy relief,” and even though I don’t have allergies, the blend of peppermint, lemongrass, calendula, red clover, fennel nettle and eyebright really help wake me up and keep me relaxed as I sip it throughout the morning. That’s what works for me, plus my mom got me this adorable tea kettle as an early bday prez. It is perfection. 💕HAPPY FRIYAY!!!

Day 3: ✨Appreciate✨feat. das boot👢
Naturally, I am falling behind on the #chasingjoyphotochallenge, but better late than never, amiright?! I didn’t want to skip this prompt. I love this photo challenge because encourages us to reflect on joy. Pardon my French, but I think we have to go through a lot of shit in life to be truly appreciative of the good stuff. I could wallow in the fact that I have a stress fracture, recently ended a relationship, am having car problems, it’s supposed to snow tomorrow or that I don’t have a steady income at the moment. But that isn’t what is on the forefront of my mind. I am lucky that it doesn’t take a lot for me to focus on the positive things - I am in an internship that I love, I have met so many awesome people who brighten my day in the simplest ways, I am learning a ton and can’t wait to be a dietitian in a few months, I have the best family and an awesome dad who is currently fixing all my car problems for me and I was financially smart to save money the past few years. It’s all about perspective and I think we put too much pressure on ourselves. It doesn’t take much to appreciate the little things. Like this bombass lunch for example. Leftover from the other nights meal prep with some extra veggies thrown in. And it is 50 and sunny today so I am taking advantage of that by taking my lunch break to the great outdoors. I hope you all have a great Thursday and find something to be appreciative of today💕

Day 2: Make Something #chasingjoyphotochallenge
Don’t mind me, I’m just over here making dinner at 10pm in the evening🙈. It’s been a long day, but a glorious one overall. The Department of Health has been great so far, and I am learning a ton about policy and where nutrition fits in. I also got to go back to Campus Recreation to help out with an undergraduate evening Meal Prep class. Afterwards, I got a workout in before ~finally~ coming home since I was already at the gym. On the podcast today, Georgie mentioned a struggle of being lazy and uninspired with food, which I can totally relate to as crazy as that may sound. I hadn’t been to the grocery store in a while due to being out of town the past few weekends and not having motivation to get as much as usual for the weekdays. Today, that changed and I reignited my love for making things in my favorite indoor place - the kitchen. I know some people despise cooking, but I love it. There is something about chopping veggies and mixing flavors that makes me forget about all of the negativity and stressors I am facing in life right now. I love inspiring others to make their own small lifestyle switches and experiment with my style of healthy cooking. Cooking does not have to be a chore! There is too much to be happy about to let the little things get to you. Sometimes, it just takes the distraction of creating wonderful things to help me realize what I am really capable of outside of the kitchen. My tastebuds are in heaven and that is all I have for now. Time to shower and try to get some sleep 😴💕
