Whole30 Week 1 Review

Quote of the Day: “Every time you eat is an opportunity to nourish your body.” So for the New Year, my goal is to get back into healthy eating. In 2020… and 2019, I kind of let myself go a little and ate a lot of ice cream and chocolate and although it was amazing, my clothes didn’t like it too much and my scale didn’t like it either. I decided that in 2021 I was going to attempt the Whole30 diet. The Whole30 diet is an elimination diet where you cut out dairy, grains, alcohol, legumes, and sugar for 30 days and then slowly…

Reflecting on 2020 + What I’ve Learned

Quote of the day: “Your current situation is giving you an opportunity to re-evaluate what you want.” Officially four days away from 2020, the craziest year of them all.

Today, I want to talk about a topic that I’ve never really discussed on my blog. That topic is…weight. Weight is a very sensitive topic to most people (I think), including myself. I don’t like to talk about it often because it is so sensitive and I’m also relatively sensitive about my own weight. I thought I’d open up a little and talk about my weight…scary. So you know how over the summer everyone has their so-called “bikini body” or at least…
