We have had enough teachers. It’s time we take back our mental health this year and start focusing on us without feeling guilty for it. Through the last couple years and the mass exodus of teachers leaving the profession, we cannot keep doing what we’ve been doing and think we won’t get burnt out too. There’s a lot that needs to change from higher levels of the education world to make significant changes to our schools and profession. But we can’t wait around for that. It starts within us. And it starts this year.
I never thought I struggled with anxiety until I got older. For me, it comes in the form of spiralling. One thing will happen and I will continue to spiral down further and make up scenarios in my head on how it could be the worst possible outcome.
I have to work hard daily so I don’t fall into these patterns where things continuously build off each other and all a sudden nothing in my life is ‘right’.
When planning a bachelorette party, you have to cater to the bride (obviously), but there are some things that no matter where it’s at, who’s going, or how old you are .. you are going to want to do these 5 things!
Do you even need to go low fat in order to see results? Some will say yes and some will no. Here’s what I know and what has worked for many of my clients. Macros doesn’t mean one thing. Tracking macros is just a way to measure your food. You can be Keto and track. You can be low carb and track. You can eat tons of meat or none at all. Macros is not one size fits all but what fits best for your lifestyle & goals. In here I breakdown how you can enjoy a lower fat diet when all you crave is high fats. And I also give you some pointers on how to make the diet work for the foods you like!
Reading has always been a passion of mine and I’m so thankful for it. No matter what emotion I’m feeling I can always turn to book. My goal each year is to read 52 books, I’m aiming for higher this year but I don’t know if I could get 60 or not. I mean, I’m sure I could if I put my mind to it, here’s how!
Well, I officially have 4 months before the wedding and I am starting to get into the zone on my nutrition. Over the course of the last 6 months I have been working on increasing my calories to build up my metabolism and put on a good amount of muscle. Now over the course of the next 4 months I will be working in the opposite direction to slim down!
I am a huge breakfast girl! It is my favorite meal of the day and I keep it really simple because nobody has time for an extravagant meal first thing in the morning. However, quick things for breakfast can be hard when you are trying to get in a good amount of protein. Unless you’re adding protein powder to smoothies, yogurt, or in your milk for your cereal, you’re probably getting in a decent amount of carbs and fats with not as much protein. Making it harder for your end of day goals to be hit.
I definitely played into the belief that the only thing that mattered in my nutrition was the macros on the nutrition. I literally wouldn’t care about how many ingredients or what those ingredients were, where the food came from, etc. Until I started to feel bloated, tired, more anxious, and wasn’t seeing results like before. So, this summer I have dedicated it to my own health, not my physical body!
