Life Updates….Big Changes

To say that the last month and a half have been a whirlwind would be an understatement. I left my full time job. I realized that corporate fitness just wasn’t the environment that I wanted to be in. It was a good learning experience for me as my first adult job. I also have to…

Body & Life

Recently, I was weighed. I usually don’t look at my weight. The pull of gravity on my body is meaningless to me. But, a couple of weeks ago, I saw my weight for the first time in a year. I was 126.3 pounds. That’s 6 pounds lighter than what I weighed a year ago. At…

God Bless Alabama Barbecue

There’s nothing like returning to your roots. Something I’ve done twice now. A few weeks ago, I returned to my hometown of Auburn, AL to see my best friend graduate from Auburn University. Before then, I took a spontaneous spring break trip back home last year. I got to spend time with old friends and…

Songs I’m Obsessed with Lately

Music is such an important part of my life. I use my Spotify account almost religiously. I never really have had one all time favorite song. I have a few all time favorites and then I just appreciate good music. With that being said, here’s what I’ve been hitting on repeat lately: Be Careful– Cardi…

One Year of Adulthood

Guys, I just realized that next month I will have been a college graduate for one year. One year of adulting, one year of working full time, one year of attempting to direct my life…. I know that people always say that your first year out of college is always the hardest but I didn’t…

Finding Humor in Darkness

I usually take evening walks at work. It’s just a way for me to get out of the gym and clear my head. I’ll usually listen to music or a podcast…..or sometimes just walk in silence. The other night I was listening to a podcast that got me thinking….therefore this post was born out of…

My First NEDA Walk

On New Year’s Day, I registered for my first NEDA Walk. If you read my last post, February 26th through March 3rd is National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. At the beginning of 2018, I knew that I wanted to take a more active role in raising awareness about this disease. So,  I decided to register…

Why You Should Support NEDAwareness Week

Millions of men and women, of all ages, races, sizes, and backgrounds, suffer from eating disorders on a daily basis. Among all the mental illnesses known, eating disorders are the…

A self love Valentine

I saw a post on Instagram by my all time FAVORITE blogger, Immaeatthat, where she talked about how to yourself some self love this Valentine’s Day. Being someone who is, as I like to say, “single as a pringle…..like the last pringle at the bottom of the can”, I thought a self love Valentine’s Day…

Leaving Fear Behind

Through all these endless canyons, TRUST beyond what you can see: For beyond your wildest worries, you will find unbridled peace. ~Morgan Harper Nichols Fear is a funny thing. Scientists say that the reason humans feel fear is to protect us from things that we perceive as a threat. But, is what we PERCEIVE as…

To the people who gave me my wake up call

My wake up call came to me when two people on the TCU campus reported me to Campus Life. Someone in my dorm and someone in the Rec Center had seen me. They courageously alerted Campus Life because they were concerned about me. I never found out who it was that reported me. I hope…

My go-to/ in a pinch/ lazy meals

Usually I’m pretty good about making a big batch of breakfast and dinner meals over the weekend to have ready for work for the following week. However, sometimes I want to just make something easy and inexpensive for dinner. Sometimes I want to make something for myself on the weekends that I can just throw…
