Signs you may be gluten intolerant

Let’s put it plain and simple…

Lately I’ve felt like straight dog shit. I haven’t slept a full night in months. I am fatigued beyond belief. My mood goes from high to low in the blink of an eye. Focus and mental clarity is nonexistent. Itchy is an understatement when it comes to my skin. Despite consistent efforts to lose weight, my body rejects it. And my anxiety (that I always have in some shape or form) is at an all-time high. Read More

A New Journey: #WhyIYoga

So, when I say I’m a yogi in training, that would probably be an understatement. I’m still figuring out the moves with the right technique with hardly any strength to actually hold me up (luckily my gymnast & cheer background helps a little). BUT, I could care less. There are only a few things that come around in your lifetime that really set your soul on fire and motivate you to want to be better every day. Read More

Fitness isn’t a chore, it’s a gift

Fitness isn’t a punishment…it’s a blessing. Nutrition isn’t restrictive…it’s healing. Health isn’t a one-size-fits-all and may not look the same for everyone. But, it’s worth fighting for. ~ BuffBunny

How do YOU view fitness?

I know for me, fitness used to be my entire life. I went to school, the gym, to sleep, and hit ‘repeat’ day in & day out. I got up every morning ECSTATIC that my body was healthy and that I got to work out that day. I would plan my workout regimen while brushing my teeth and could hardly wait to get out the door to tackle it. Needless to say, I was in the best shape of my life. And it was effortless, because it was my passion. It made me feel good.

Somewhere along the way, counting calories & carbs, comparing myself to others & the need to lose weight brainwashed me. Fitness became an addiction — my means to become as perfect as possible. Slowly but surely, my passion became my obsession, and instead of “getting” to workout, I “had” to workout to maintain that feeling of perfection. Read More

Low Carb Turkey Taco Stuffed Peppers

So many of you have been asking about my yummy-in-my-tummy taco stuffed peppers seen on my Snapchat. Well, today’s your day. I’m sharing my secret.

This recipe is SO easy, you won’t believe it. But, it has also come a long way. Many improvements have HAD to been made along the way… 😉

The result: this bomb-ass recipe I’m about to let you in on!!!! Read More

Baked Balsamic Chicken + Roasted Vegetables

Nom nom nom.

As most of you know, I’ve been down & out with a really pain-in-the-ass back injury. We’re talking serious pain meds, muscle relaxers + no working out. So basically, I’m being forced to take western medicine, which I despise, and have to give up my favorite activity that not only keeps me healthy, but SANE.
