Once upon a time, when I was a pudgy, cuddly little girl, my brother announced: "Kelly doesn't eat to live, she lives to eat." He was making fun of me but I agreed, and I still identify with that rule, but here's the problem—I don't know if I want to be someone who lives to eat anymore.
Boredom sucks, but don't let it suck you in. When you start making small steps towards being productive with your free time, you'll train yourself to get used to it and stop filling the time with food.
A little while back, I found Jelmer on Instagram and checked out his fitness and lifestyle blog over at JMRfitness.eu. Since we had so much in common, I wanted to give Jelmer a shout-out on my blog and share his story with you. Hope you enjoy!
When it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, snacks don't really fit into the plan. First, it's unlikely your snack will fill you up, therefore you're left unsatisfied and will either continue eating or eat more in another hour or so. Second, there are a lot of calories in snacks. This post will explain what I mean in detail.
To continue with my post series on Facing the Fear—of Panic Attacks, I delve into my experience with graduation ceremonies. This has been a rollercoaster experience for me and I hope it inspires you to take action against your own fears.
Holiday breaks completely throw me off my game, which means getting back to my normal routine is very appealing. Here are my tips on how to get back into the swing of things and enjoy the process instead of clawing for that end result. Happy 2018!
My first introduction to lifting was Kinobody’s eBookGoddess Toning Program, which is a beginner-level workout designed specifically for women to build a sexy, slim, and strong body. The program details how to life a healthy lifestyle, how to track macronutrients, and explains why specific exercises are best to get the results women want (toned arms, slim legs, and a curvy bum!)
Hey, it's been awhile since I posted so I decided to do something a bit fun, unrelated to fitness or mental health. It's almost December, the sun sets in Edinburgh at 3:45 PM (I'm not kidding), and it's effin' freezing outside. Here's how I handle the cold weather in Scotland and in Connecticut. (For some reason, there's a slight JK Rowling theme here.)
It's just as important to keep your mental health in check as it is to keep your physical health in check. If you aren't taking care of your mind, you could very well end up with a sniff neck, like yours truly.
Well after 2 years, my boyfriend and I have finally discovered the best restaurant in Edinburgh . . . for tracking macros! There's this magical spot in Haymarket called Grams where everything on their menu includes the macros.
I haven't posted about anxiety in awhile. I think it's just because I've been doing well, so it's not really crossed my mind as much. Instead of overthinking things daily or bi-daily (if that's a word), it only happens when I'm doing something completely new.
Pre-workout isn't as commonly known as protein powder. I didn't know about pre-workout until I started following "fitspo" YouTubers on social media. They'd put a scoop or two of pink powder into a glass of water and chug it before the gym. Normally it comes in tubs with neon labels and a list of gibberish ingredients meant to turn you into a lifting machine for an hour. Intense right? Well, it isn't as intense as it sounds!
