    3 Healthy Changes to Make

    Recently, I’ve been making some changes. If you’re following my Instagram or read my recent blog post on becoming debt-free, then you’ve probably noticed this. In general, I’m trying to make a lot of healthy changes that contribute to me being more balanced. Being a better person everyday. I’d like to think that I’m a fairly healthy person. Most of the time. Sure, I enjoy an adult beverage every now and then and I’ll eat out a couple times per month. But for the most part, I eat a lot whole foods, a lot of fruits and vegetables, and I drink over a gallon of water a day. I get…

    Grilled Tilapia, Roasted Red Potatoes & Asparagus

    This past weekend I was craving tilapia so I decided to make it my meal prep for the week. To be honest I’ve never really liked tilapia the way I enjoy other seafoods, but I was willing to give it another try. When I got to the seafood section for my grocery shopping (take a peak at this blog post if you want tips on how to make a grocery list for meal prepping) the frozen tilapia I usually buy was sold out so I opted for fresh. I tend to stick with frozen because it’s convenience and price, but this meal prep with fresh fish turned out so much better than…

    1.2.17 | First Meal Prep of 2017

    Happy New Year! I started the year off not feeling the best – I didn’t make it to the gym on the first day of the year because I was feeling under the weather. But I didn’t let that keep me down. I made it a point to get to the gym on January 2 with a strong shoulder day and cardio session, and also started a cut. To be honest, I wasn’t planning to start my cut until February or March, but after considering my long term goal I decided to start the year off right and get into my dieting phase. I’m planning to cut through at least February,…

    Why I Lift

    I’ve been MIA for the last few weeks, and I’ve been in an undeniable creative and workout rut. Right now I’m trying to get back into the swing of things and find a good workout plan for me for the next few months. As I’ve been working to find what is motivating for me to get to the gym and keep eating healthy during the holiday time, I’ve truly been questioning why I lift. Why I like to lift and what it does for me in the greater scope of things. Along with that is also figuring out what fitness means to me. I’ve been lifting for four years now and…

    Tuna and White Bean Salad | Recipe of the Week

    A few weeks ago I prepped a bunch of salmon fillets and froze them for weeks that I didn’t feel like doing meal prep Sunday. Then Sunday came along and I didn’t feel like eating salmon – tuna it is. I’m still in process of incorporating chicken back into my diet – I started with basic grilled chicken and I’m not sure how I feel about it yet – so until then I still like to have fish prepped for days I need good protein macros and low carb macros. Salmon is my go-to, but I’ve kind of grown tired of it. Maybe I just need a new way to…
