All of the information presented below is what I have learned as a Kinesiology major and an overall health and nutrition enthusiast. ——————  As some of you may know, I quit eating meat back in December.

Pictures, Updates, & a Karma Cleanse

Not one, but TWO separate bouquets I got from two different tumblers this past weekend for the second Tumble Show at the Park district. So great! One of the bouquets was from Bella and her family. I love this little girl with my whole heart. She’s been struggling with being adopted and feeling out of … Continue reading

Whey-ing My Protein Options (Ha!)

I wrote this post last week and forgot to post it- woops- so here it is: Intuitively, I am doubting my RMR. I don’t know why, but I just feel like something went wrong. I know, SHUT UP ABOUT MY FUCKING RMR ALREADY. But no.
 How am I burning almost double the amount of a … Continue reading


I just did a rough estimate of how many calories I ate yesterday… (In case you missed it, click here and here to read about my personal metabolic discovery and why I need to shovel food into my face in order to lose weight.) and I know that this isn’t exactly accurate, BUT according to … Continue reading

I’m not going to lie though, seeing the 2011 Super Bowl Champs during … Continue reading

Pancakes for Breakfast.

My sister was home for the first time this weekend in a long time. She’s two years younger than me, and just like with most siblings- we fight. I’m pretty sure her and I created UFC. No, I’m being serious. When we were younger, you would have thought that her and I were boys with how we … Continue reading

No Moose

  Yesterday was beautiful outside! And with my moods being all over the place with the weather lately, I knew I had to take advantage of the sunshine and my good mood, and took my run outside. My dad, being the wonderful man that he is, came with me on his bike. I feel kind … Continue reading

Monkey Helmet.

It has been quite the crazy past couple of days! I have, for the most part, finally kicked my cold. I haven’t worked out yet, but that’s going to happen today. I got up at 5:45am ready to get back on track, but once I realized how cold it was outside I figured that riding … Continue reading
