Nummies!

Alright…this looks seriously scrumptious! I’m very excited about this new blog I found and even more excited about tweaking some of these amazing recipes to be a bit healthier (most of them are pretty great already though). The easiest thing to cut out of the recipes I have found is OIL! Switching out the recommended amount for a bit of EVOO spray is a cinch! Trust me, if I can…

Relationships

This topic has been on my mind quite a bit, as of late, but I simply had no clue how to address it. While on this healthy journey, I’ve begun to realize the more pivotal people in my life. These are the people who challenge me to be better, kinder, happier and who can appreciate me for everything I am – all the time. They rally around me and make…

One Girl’s Realization That Things Need to Change

I absolutely LURVE having my picture taken. I mean, seriously…I’m an all-out camera fiend! A few months back, my aunt came into town for business and a quick visit. It was oodles of fun and I was elated to have her here. We took bundles of pictures and when I looked back at my iPhone’s photos, I found this one. I was shocked, disgusted and so very disappointed with myself. …

Fighting, Falling and Fumbling Around

I know that I have been out of touch this past week. Believe me when I say that I truly missed my writing outlet, speaking out to you and simply feeling the satiety of what these words do for me. The past few days have been a whirlwind of failure, emotions and an overall punch-in-the-gut. My last final of my undergraduate career was this past Tuesday. At least, it should…

Sensory Overload

As I sat in my apartment, studying away my life, I found myself worrying. Thinking about my grades during this summer session, the job I have waiting for me after finals end next week (the same position that I took a leave of absence from in order to finish my undergrad coursework), whether or not my parents (separated, divorced, apart and always so distant when I need a good cry)…

Study Break: One Nerd’s Musings on Procrastination and Exams; Or, why am I still wearing a bra?

My study snack, in all it’s nummy glory! Mmm, Sunbutter! (Side note: I’ve eaten three bananas today, heaven knows why?) I splurged and went for a Nervous Breakdown, swooped up from my favorite little coffee shack near campus (Common Grounds, a.k.a. – CG, pushing coffee to the brilliant Baylor masses and the hipsters who only drink it ’cause it’s totes awesome!) Today has been a splurg-y kind of day, all….

Munchies

Today I found myself craving fruit, so I reached for a FUJI Apple, my favorite because it’s sweet and tangy! Even now as I study for my exam on Wednesday, I feel hungry. I’ve noticed the change in my metabolism. Nearly every 3 hours, I start feeling like I’ve got to munch on something, STAT! My meals have been small and healthy, so this makes sense. I did not think…

Litte Victories

So true, Jilly…so true. Though she is still cataloged as a “Skinny Bitch” in my mind, I do consider her a good role model. I’ve purchased her “30 Day Shred” and “Ripped in 30” but I haven’t given them their full 30 days yet. I’m going to keep my workout routine for 1 more week and then delve into one of these puppies, plus add in the YOGA DVD from…

Bringing Sexy Back

   What does sexy mean to you? Lately I’ve been thinking about this. I’ve been keeping up with my exercise and am boosting my goal of running 3 days per week to 5 times a week. I run/jog for about an hour a day and on Friday I hit the 5 mile mark. Guess what? Despite the disgusting amount of sweat spurting out of my body, I felt fantastic. Flabkilling!…

Finding Motivation

It’s day four and my body is still aching from that 3.5 mile run. I’m finding it difficult to leave my apartment to go for another run. 😐 Don’t get me wrong, I know that I need to go out there and sweat this day away…I just don’t want to go. This has lead me to consider the origin of motivation. Why would I just not want to do this…
