eating is such a workout

Guys this week has been insanity. It was my anesthesia week meaning I was co-doctoring with a classmate for her first two surgeries ever which I did the anesthesia and monitoring, which was really cool, BUT it meant I was up from 4am until 11pm for basically three days straight and that shit is HARD. So needless to say I didn’t exercise since Sunday because I was barely able to keep my eyes open.

BUT today! I finally got a full 8hrs of sleep last night and this afternoon I was able to go for a 3.5 mile run at lunch! It was so nice to be able to run again, I miss it when I’m not able to do it. It wasn’t a great run, honestly, I’m still very tired from this week, I’m a little on the dehydrated side too. But it was infinitely better than nothing.

I’m having a lot of difficulty figuring out how much I should be eating, and what I should be eating, which is frustrating. Also, I don’t know how often I can run without hurting myself? Baby steps.

This picture is from yesterday where I drove an hour after class to surprise my partner with flowers after he gave his first talk at a conference about the research he’s doing. Needless to say he was very surprised (I also definitely got ice cream from the universities creamery, and found out that my favorite bakery had gluten free vegan donuts now?? And bought a pair of really cute pants from a thrift store). Wooo.

Breakfast this morning was coffee protein oatmeal w strawberries, bananas, raspberries, peanut butter & cacao nibs!! 😍😍 so good!! Happy Friday my lovelies ✨

So, I’ve been at university the best part of over a week and the days I’ve eaten in I’ve consumed a different variation of the same meal every night that I’ve been in to eat 😂. I absolutely love this meal, mozzarella salads are so good!! 100% would recommend!

Ahh it feels so good to be back to my old routine!!! First time since school started that I’ve seen all green, and I’m super proud of myself for it. Small victories!!😊(Also, don’t look at how much sleep I got last night lmao I’ll work on that)

Never give up!

Sometimes, all you want to do is give in. It hurts so bad, you’re so tired, you can’t do it. That’s how it feels. But that feeling you get, when you’ve completed that workout or made it to the end of the match, is ten times the pain you felt before that. Because success is forth fighting for. It’ll be hard, but you won’t regret it.

Avocado on toast is definitely the best breakfast at university.

How I made it:
Slice the avocado into two halves and remove the stone
Dice the avocado by scoring it with a knife into small pieces and squeeze the contents of the avocado into a dish
Lightly mash the avocado
Slice a small handful of cherry tomatoes into small chunks and add to the avocado
Flavour with salt and lemon juice to taste
Stick your bread in the toaster or under the grill
Add your concoction after mixing
Enjoy!

You might need a kind reminder today that you are worthy enough. Your body deserves to be loved.

Loving yourself and loving your body means treating your body right. Eating clean and regular exercise is just one more way to love your body.

Make a healthier lifestyle a part of loving yourself. You will feel good about the choices that you’ve decided to take for YOU.

It was nice eating greasy food again in a way because now my body can’t really take it because I’ve been eating so much healthier! 👍 So it’s a lesson learned! Got to think positive! These past three days haven’t been what I’ve planned, but I will get back at it! I promise!!

That time again 😊😊😊😊🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️

Can we all look @ how wrong I cut my eggs 😂😂😂😂😂

6.5km this eve! Still have a baddy knee, but just ordered a support for it so that I can have less impact & continue my challenge of running 6-7 times a week for a month!

I woke up this morning with such a grateful heart. Having a community that will encourage and support you makes all the difference. I am so blessed to be surrounded by such motivated women, who have so much love to give others 💗

I used to wonder if I would ever find the right path for me. I never expected to find coaching, but it has changed my life in so many ways. Helping other people and working on yourself every day feels damn good. Calling that my job? Pffff, seemed UNREAL before. So glad I TRUSTED in myself and took advantage of this opportunity.
