Monthly Goals for February 2021

Quote of the Day: “Don’t give up because you had a bad day, forgive yourself and do better tomorrow.” One month down (well almost) 11 more to go! So far 2021 seems to be okay…what do you think? At the beginning of January, I made a list of goals or “resolutions” I wanted to focus on for that month. How did I do? My biggest goal was to attempt the Whole30 diet. If you are an avid follower of my blog, then you’ve probably read my Whole30 updates and know that I’ve cheated a little bit, but you know, I’ve done a lot better than…

Holiday Gift Guide: Fitness Addict

Another gift guide today! Since it’s Fit Friday, what better way to celebrate than to do a fitness guide? Enjoy. AirPods Pro: I recently got my first pair of AirPod Pros after years of the Bose bluetooth headphones and… I love them! They’re not the most comfortable things, but the noise canceling is awesome and the fact that there’s no chord is awesome. Plus, the case is a charging case, so no more dead headphones. Bala Bangles: These blew up once COVID hit because everyone started working out at home. Basically, they’re 1-2 lb. weights you put on wrists or ankles and workout with them…

My Impossible List

Quote of the Day: “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” Have you ever heard of the impossible list? No? Well, good… allow me to introduce you to it. Prior to a few days ago, I’d never heard of the impossible list either until my friend Erin sent me this link. The impossible list was created by Joel Runyon (his name reminds me of my anatomy professor) who was craving more challenge in life. The list helped him go from living in his parents basement to running two businesses. Joel really emphasizes that the impossible list is NOT a bucket list. From my understanding, a bucket list is just a list…

Interviewing into the Real World: Drew

Quote of the day: “Self-care is not an expense, it’s an investment.” I’m back with another interview! Today I am interviewing a very special person, Drew. Drew is very into health and fitness and has some great stories and tips to share! Let’s dive right into it. 1. Introduce Yourself (school, major, job, etc.) Hi! My name is Drew, and I’m a senior attending University of Oregon. I’m studying Human Physiology with a minor in Chemistry. If all goes according to plan I’ll have my degree in a few months… I didn’t work throughout college (except during the summer), but over this past winter term I…

What I Actually Accomplished Before Turning 22

I recently turned 22 years old (November 9) and before my birthday, I set a few goals that I wanted to accomplish. I did this last year before I turned 21 and I thought it was really fun to work towards something in a short amount of time, so I decided to do it again for my 22nd. Let’s see what I accomplished and what I failed to accomplish. Accomplishments:  I held a 3 minute plank: I am in SHOCK that I was able to do this especially because I rarely practiced holding my plank for a month. About a month ago, I started the “Crush…
