Why I love yoga

    me rolling up a yoga mat

    So let’s get a little serious and then we can chuckle later. I have patella tendonitis and a possible torn meniscus. I’ve been dealing this for almost a year and a half. At one point I couldn’t even straighten out my leg. Walking with a limp was devastating. I have my own theory on what happened, but that’s for another day. I had to let go of running, tennis, and yoga.

    It’s been heartbreaking not to do sprints because I love them and my body responds well to it. I used to wish I loved jogging but I believe in getting from A to B as quick as possible! If you need another reason to be convinced why sprinting is kickass when you’re trying to tone up, look at the body of a sprinter and someone who runs long distance. They’re very different despite them training hard AF. It’s a preference. I’m not saying I let this get to my head, but this one time at band camp at the grocery store this lady came up to me and asked if I ran track. It was a complete mood booster.  Read more


    Drinking + Activated Charcoal

    St Paddy’s day has come and gone! Which meant a lot of green, drinking and booze. Yes, the last two mean the same thing thus proving my point on the amount of liquor people drank. What is St. Patty’s Day all about? It has to do with religion and drinking, two things I’m interested in.

    So get this, St Patty’s day is a celebration of the death of a guy named St Patrick. It also marks the commemoration of Christianity in Ireland. So, on this day, Catholics and Anglicans go to church. But get this, any Lenten restrictions pertaining to Food and drink are lifted! On this day! How great is our God? This is great for several things.

    1. I gave up alcohol for Lent.

    2. If you observe Lent you know we don’t eat meat on Fridays. Guess what day St Patrick’s Day falls on. You guessed it.  WHOO! You is right. (OG Maco voice)

    So, what I’m about to tell you is my little drinking hack, not just for this day, but anytime you I feel that I’ll consume quite a bit of alcohol. Read more


    How to maintain healthy habits while eating out

    At dinner maintain healthy habits while eating out

    A few of my friends think I don’t eat a lot, but I promise you I do. According to my mom, I eat like a 5-year-old (portion-wise not mess-wise). I love food and I enjoy the healthy relationship I have with it. If you spend long periods of time with me you’ll realize I eat a lot of small portions several times a day. Many healthy eaters will tell you this is a great application of eating healthy. To be honest, my bloating and tiny stomach mandate my eating habits.

    I cook most of my meals to make sure I’m eating as healthy as possible, spending less money on food, and to make sure I don’t waste food. I used to be so wasteful. Now I make sure I create shopping lists, check my pantry, check the fridge, and plan the meals I’d like to eat for the next few days.

    Why I switched to organic feminine products

    In honor of Women’s History month, it’s my duty to share this. If you or someone you love has a vagina please pay attention because this might help a vagina.

    It happens, one day you get a crime scene in your pants. White pants if mother nature is being extremely petty, black if Jesus takes the wheel. Sometimes those few days leading up to it are fine and sometimes you’re emotional, double emotional if you’re a Cancer (zodiac) like me.

    I FEEL EVERYTHING. I eat almost everything, bread, more bread. Fcuk gluten. It tastes so good. And then you check your cycle tracking up (p.s. if you’re not tracking your cycle I definitely recommend it). I use this. You can track how you feel, symptoms, your “boo boo”, energy, sexual activity etc. Read more


    Four reasons why I ditched dryer sheets

    Geez! It is scorching hot in Atlanta! I love summer because I get to wear crop tops and eat tacos on somebody’s patio. I recently celebrated my birthday and of course, my outfit had to incorporate a crop top!

    In less exciting birthday news I completed copious amounts of laundry. Believe me, I asked, no one responded to my birthday request. I don’t mind sorting and loading, but putting things back where they belong is such a bore. Other than that I don’t mind laundry.
