Pretty much every time I’m running I think back to the days when running a mile was one of the most embarresing days of the semester for me.
Back in middle school, each semester we had to run a mile around the track. Besides the fact that I almost always dreaded gym class, I dreaded this day the most. I remember the days and hours leading up to that day were always daunting. I knew what was going to happen, I was going to struggle. I always struggled with running. The main reason I struggled is becuase I was overweight and out of shape. Read More
Hello Friends and Family!
So I DID IT.
I survived the month of March, which if you haven’t read my last blog post you would be like “uhh why does that matter”? and that’s because i willingly packed my schedule full with extra responsibilities on top of all my school work for the month of march.
Why might an already busy college student that worries about everything add more to her schedule? For fun? For laughs? Nope. I mainly did it to add items to my resume (aka Dietetic Internship application, aka only 50% of people get in so I need to add as much as possible)
So here’s a little update on all the things that went on…
It was National RD Day yesterday and I decided to photograph all my meals throughout the day to share of the reasons I want to become a Registered Dietitian. That reason is because I want to show people that eating healthy doesn’t have to suck.
Most people think that in order to loose weight they have to eat clean, cut carbs, or cut fats. Technically none of that matters. What does matter is that to loose weight you are eating in a calorie deficit. Which means your taking in less calories then your body burns in a day. What you fill your calories with technically doesn’t matter, but I can pretty much guarantee that if you eat like shit your going to feel like shit.
I love to fuel my body with healthy whole foods, such as lean chicken and turkey, eggs, potatoes and vegetables along with a ton of other food items. For me I have to have variety in my diet or else i’ll get bored and that leads to binge eating.
I have had tons of ups and downs since I started becoming healthier a few years ago and I finally found what works for me and that’s eating a flexible diet. The majority of my food is “clean” whole foods with treats thrown in when I want them.
So I wanted to share a little detail about what I ate this day.
This year something I have discovered are PODCASTS. I had previously heard of podcasts but never knew much about them. So what are podcasts?
Podcasts are essentially a radio show, usually 30min-1 hour where either a host talks to through a microphone or talks with a guests usually like an interview. I listen to mine through the Podcast App for Apple. The cool things about podcasts is they’re FREE and there’s multiple podcasts for every interest.
What podcasts do I love?
With school this semester it’s already been pretty busy and it’s just going to keep getting busier. March will most likely be the busiest month i’ve had in a while, i’m a little nervous but also excited. I wanted to let you in on what’s gonna be going on with me this next month.
Last semester was my first semester at school since my mom passed away and I took 18 hours of classes. It was a crazy semester, so this semester when I only enrolled in 13 hours I felt like it was a good time for me to pile some extras onto my plate.
With graduation fast approaching it also means applying to a Dietetic internship is approaching even faster. Two things constantly get stressed about being a good candidate for an internship, GPA and voulenteer/work experience. Incase your unaware a Dietetic internship is required to become a Registered Dietitian and the match (acceptance) rate is only 50%. Because of that I want to do everything possible to make myself stand out on my application. So i decided to take on some extra responsibilities…
So it’s the 19th of January and i’m finally deciding to write down some New Years resolutions. When January 1st came around I wasn’t really planning on making resolutions. Though as January has progressed I have thought of a few things I would like to focus on improving this year.
I’m super excited to be doing the Katy Hearn winter challenge starting next Monday, January 19,2016. Last semester I did my first Katy Hearn challenge and loved it! I have been following Katy since I started lifting weights and have been constantly motivated by her. If your into fitness and need some motivation you should check her out her Instagram is @katyhearnfit. She’s a personal trainer that has transformed her body into the ‘goal body’ for thousands of girls.
