The Fitness Effect

Whether or not we are willing to admit it, we have all felt unsatisfied with how we look at some point in our lives. Maybe you looked in the mirror one day and thought your face was a little too round or maybe you looked down to notice that your thighs were bulging out of…

“I’ll just eat after…”

I know tons of people who say, “I could never forget to eat,” but sometimes when life gets crazy and we’re on the go all day it’s easy to let eating slide as a priority and even to forget to eat! Personally, I struggle with delaying my eating. If I have class I’ll tell myself…

But you’re a girl…

Yes, I am in fact a girl. Congratulations on coming to that conclusion. But why should that make any difference? Whenever a girl says she goes to the gym, people are quick to make assumptions. They tend to think that all girls just use the elliptical for 20 minutes and call it a day, or…

You Do You Boo

I remember, when I first started going to the gym I would strictly go on the treadmill because that was the only thing I really knew how to use. The weight room terrified me. I had no idea how to use most of the machines and I was always paranoid I would end up doing…

Battling the “Bikini Beach Body” Belief

*TW I have always been someone who encourages others to feel comfortable in their own skin: I am all for body positivity and self-love!
