21 things I’ve learned in my 21 years

1. It doesn’t cost you anything to be kind to others; even the smallest act of kindness can improve someone else’s day 2. Relationships of any kind, whether romantic or platonic, are a 2 WAY STREET. If you don’t feel like the other person is making the same effort you are, then you really shouldn’t…

Thankful.

Living in a developed country, it can be incredibly easy to take all the things we have in our life for granted. That’s one of the reasons that thanksgiving is one of the most meaningful holidays in my opinion! Although my American friends won’t be celebrating until next month, for us Canadians, today is Thanksgiving!…

Treat yo’ self

We’ve all heard the ever-so popular phrase, “treat yo’ self.” But I think sometimes people tend to trivialize the actual importance of doing just that! In a way, it’s become a bit of a joke. And while it’s obviously not something you should be doing 24/7 with careless intentions, every once in a while doing…

Don’t Delete Your Happiness

Earlier this week, I found myself in a funk. I kept questioning some of the positive things in my life: why do I even bother sharing my fitness journey?

All or Nothing

*tw If you type “all-or-nothing personality” into google, I’m pretty sure my Facebook profile is the top result. Ok, not really. You’ll actually get an article called “What causes all or nothing thinking,” but you catch my drift. I basically define the term to a “T.” All or nothing thinking is basically what it sounds…

Why, to me, Intermittent Fasting is just another Fad Diet

I already know in writing this post, that it’s going to be controversial, but hey I’m just sharing my perspective like everyone else. So first of all, you might be asking, what the heck is intermittent fasting? According to healthline.com article “What is Intermittent Fasting? Explained in Human Terms,” Intermittent fasting is “an eating pattern…

Less is Not Always Best

There seems to be a general societal notion that eating less is always best. This is a mindset that I took on strictly in the start of my eating disorder, and even in recovery, it’s been a hard one to fight. There are always commercials on the internet, TV, and billboards that advertise how to…

Friends are important!!!!!!

​When I’m working full time in the summer, working out and trying to balance everything, it can sometimes be difficult to also have a social life. Sometimes I’m too exhausted, sometimes I just want to go home and relax, sometimes my anxiety stops me from wanting to be social, and so on. However, this past…
