Reclaiming #selfcare: a happiness project

I've been holding off on writing this post for several reasons. I've written drafts, none of which felt right. I wasn't in the right mindset, and I'm not totally sure I am right now. Tonight, I find myself at a cider bar sipping on ice water. The lighting is dim, Ariana Grande's Sweetener album is on repeat … Continue reading Reclaiming #selfcare: a happiness project

When you survive a Whole30

The past week or so I've had severe writer's block for one reason or another. When you blog, you not only owe consistency to your readers but you also owe it to yourself to continue to work on something you've tried so hard to upkeep. So, in the meantime, I've been scouring for inspiration in the … Continue reading When you survive a Whole30

Day 9 without pizza…and I’m not dead?

There are certain things in life we can't live without: food, water, shelter, love...and pizza (ok, maybe not). Food and body image have been topics of many of my blogs recently...once upon a time I even claimed I was going to do paleo for 30 days (only to fail after day 4)...but started for all the … Continue reading Day 9 without pizza…and I’m not dead?

Two sources of evil: fuckboys and alcohol.

"Happy New Year, Beth :)" the text(s) read. Does that happen to anyone else? As soon as Christmas or NYE hits, your inbox suddenly becomes flooded with messages from men you haven't spoken to in months? It's like, ah, I know I fucked up, but it's the holidays! Happy Holidays! Let's forget about everything I've ever … Continue reading Two sources of evil: fuckboys and alcohol.

12 sober lessons in 14 days.

Two weeks ago, I wrote a post about body image, an issue that has been a problem in my life for as long as I can remember. I'm a generally carefree, laid back kinda gal, but the majority of my anxiety stems from the anxiety I have about my own body. Let me note that … Continue reading 12 sober lessons in 14 days.

This is what sucks about diabetes

We live in a world that's made up of 1.25 million type 1 diabetics. At one point, you probably have sat next to someone at a bar who injected themselves with insulin before indulging in some nachos or possibly walked by somebody at the beach with a pump affixed to their stomach. The diabetic community … Continue reading This is what sucks about diabetes

#KAYLASARMY: BBG Update

I know I know, I'm a bit late for the 2 month review. HOWEVER, I just started BBG 2.0 and am loving it. For so long I have been uncomfortable in my own skin, allowing the scale to determine my happiness. I would punish myself for eating a cupcake by restricting calories the next day. … Continue reading #KAYLASARMY: BBG Update

What we REALLY should be talking about in High School Sex-Ed

We all remember our first introduction to "sex ed" in middle school. You probably watched a video, showing diagrams and words that made you giggle. Boys and girls were instructed to separate into different rooms, where you were preached the same type of ideas. If you didn't know how babies were made prior to this, than I'm … Continue reading What we REALLY should be talking about in High School Sex-Ed

You aren’t what you Facetune

I read Mackenzie Newcomb's article the other day, "Let's Photoshop the Beauty Standard," about a new photo editing app called FaceTune. This app is basically Instagram on steroids. Not only does it allow you to whiten teeth, flawlessly remove blemishes, and effortlessly remove the dark circles from underneath your eyes in a simple swipe, it … Continue reading You aren’t what you Facetune

“30, 60” Track Workout

I've never been a huge fan of sprints. I was never the fastest girl on my sports teams throughout high school. I was always just average. Running around the track over and over and over again is rather monotonous to me, but a sprint workout is one of the best workouts you can get to … Continue reading “30, 60” Track Workout
