My Relationship with Food

Quote of the Day: “You can’t live a full life on an empty stomach.” A few weeks ago, I wrote about my relationship with exercise and my “fitness journey” or whatever you want to call it, so I thought it would be fitting to write about my relationship with food. Let’s just jump right into it. My Relationship with Food:  Looking back at just the past 5 years of my life, I’m realizing that my relationship with food has changed so much. I’ve literally been all over the “eating spectrum”, from restrictive, to healthy, to not giving two fricks. When I was a senior in high…

Quote of the Day: “It’s your road and your road alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.” -Rumi I decided that for each blog post, I want to incorporate a “Quote of the Day”.

CorePower Review

In 2020, I strive to explore new ways to workout and be active. The gym is great, but sometimes I just get a little bored of doing the same exercises and need to switch it up.

My Vegetarian Story

I’ve been wanting to share my vegetarian story for a while now, but never got around to it, but I finally thought that it was about time. Just to clear a few things up first, vegetarian is defined as someone who does not eat meat and vegan is someone who avoids all animal products as a whole. Glad we cleared all that up…now here’s my story. Growing up, I was the BIGGEST meat eater ever. I was that person who freaking brought steak in a bag to school for lunch. My personal favorite foods were carne asada tacos, pastrami sandwiches, steak, and lamb chops…mmm lamb…
