Sunday’s Quote…. 4/9/2017

“If you are happy, you can give happiness. If you don’t love yourself and if you are unhappy with yourself, you can’t give anything else but that.”  

Pray Every Day

If I’m being completely honest, sometimes I do forget to pray. I wish I didn’t, but sometimes I do. When I pray, I remember to thank God for all that I have instead of asking for things. I always pray that the sun will come up tomorrow and that the people I love are healthy…

Struggles Are Blessings

The title sounds silly, right? Well the past few months have been really tough. It feels like I get myself together, and then it all falls apart within a week. I’ve realized that some people would love to have my struggles/problems. It’s frustrating that time isn’t always on my side, and real life problems don’t…

200 Calories in 10 Minutes

FitThe Jacob’s Ladder is a weird machine that will make your legs BURN within a few minutes. You can use your hands to climb or just your feet, but I am not well coordinated and only use my feet to climb. Keeping your core engaged while climbing, and going slow is OKAY! I break the…

MACROS

A couple of months ago I discovered IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros). I saw so many women preaching about how it is the best diet they’ve ever done, so I did some researching and tried it. I love it. WHAT ARE MACROS?! Marcos stands for macro-nutrients in food. AKA: Carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. You need…

Vitamin D

It’s the middle of winter where I live, but there isn’t much snow and the sun is shining. When I walk across campus I usually go through buildings to get to my destinations. Today it is 30 degrees fareighnheit, with a high of 51! The human body is supposed to have at least 10 minutes…

Trying New Things

Ever since middle school I have been scared to try new things because I have been scared of failing, or being laughed at. Well this past year I have tried so many new things, and I LOVE IT! I was scared to go to the gym because there were people there who lifted more weights…

Healthy Snack

I always have yogurt in my meal plan! A serving of greek vanilla yogurt and fruit that you enjoy (mine is blueberries) tastes so good! Healthy, and packed with protein.. YUM!!!

Here are a couple things to remember when you are comparing yourself to others… They are on their own journey, just like you..Every single person has a different mindset, a different set of…
