You’re Better Than Your Bad Days

Do you ever wake up, and you realized you missed your alarms, or your car won’t start, or you spilled your breakfast on your shirt? We’ve all had those days. We try to tell ourselves that we should move on, or look for something positive in the rest of the day. And while we should…

Pikes Peak, CO

This past summer (Summer 2016) I traveled to Colorado for the fifth time, and reached a high of 14,114 feet in altitude. It was THE most breathtaking view I have ever witnessed. I rode the Pikes Peak Cog Railway that started at about 10,000 feet or so. The next time I visit Colorado, I want…

Putting All of My Faith In God’s Hands

I was baptized in a Catholic church, I grew up learning about God and going to Vacation Bible School in the summer, and I’ve attended several Catholic funerals over the short course of my lifetime. I live exactly half a mile from the only Catholic church I’ve attended. My parents never took us to church…

Chicken Burrito Bowls

Yesterday I meal prepped to save time this week, and also to be prepared and to know what I have to eat. I made chicken burrito bowls for my dinners… SOO GOOD! Adjust to your macros and dietary goals! 1 serving Brown Rice 4 0z. Chicken Breast 1/2 serving Frozen Corn Diced Tomatoes Shredded Lettuce…

There’s always someone who has it worse!

Yesterday my To-Do List included school, gym, grocery shop, study, sleep. I always plan my day the night before, except I forgot to add all of the unexpected things… 6 AM- My car didn’t start 3 times, but did the 4th. 9:45 AM- I over hear an opinion to a situation I’m sensitive to and…

Today I had school off for MLK Day and so I wasn’t on campus near the gym.. I went yesterday but today is Monday, and there’s just something about a Monday that makes me feel refreshed and motivated. So, today was part of my 4 day weekend, BUT I knew if I didn’t go to…

IIFYM

IIFYM stands for “If It Fits Your Macros” Recently, I have been living by this, because sometimes I forget to meal prep or don’t know if I should eat something. I’ll check my macros, along with other factors such as sodium and sugars, and if the bowl of mini shredded wheats fits in the daily…

Cardio? CardiNO

I love running. Wait.. this statement differs from the title. You’re right. I like to run when I want to run. Today I got on the elliptical because my knees feel blown out and guess what.. I didn’t feel like doing it. Long story short, I completed 4 minutes and 14 seconds on the elliptical…

How To Be Happy

Sometimes life gives you lemons, and you have to decide what to do with them. Being positive to achieve happiness in life is important. There are so many negative people in the world, and not getting sucked in can be hard! How can some people be so happy while others are miserable? Simple. Positive people…

Done With Finals, FINALLY!!!

This semester I learned that A’s do not determine how smart I am, or how physically fit I am, or how far I will go in life. I have met so many people who are successful that didn’t get a 4.0, but they are doing something they love and they are supporting themselves. I want…
