Hi y’all!

I’ve been working on giving y’all a workout that can be used in a variety of settings. It all started after I had a conversation with one of my friends about why she doesn’t go to the gym. People often assume that if you don’t go to the gym then you’re simply lazy. But that’s not always the case. A lot of people I know, particularly women, don’t like the gym because they fear being judged, hit on, or looking like they don’t know what they’re doing. A classic case of gymtimidation.┬áPlus a lot of gyms have that “look at me,” competitive atmosphere that not everyone likes. (Not hating on you if you go to the gym- I definitely go). Gym memberships can be pricey for folks sometimes too (Broke college students like me definitely understand that). So often times, at home workouts can be the most reasonable and convenient. If you’re looking for lower body exercises that will help you tone up and build strength continue reading!

I Need Some Pizza

Hi Y’all!

I decided that today I’m going to post my first healthy food recipe. Even though I eat healthy most of the time I am still a foodie, and I still have my weaknesses when it comes to junk food. Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a bread weakness. I love bread, and I have absolutely NO self control when it comes to portion control. (I actually ate a whole box of croissants the other day). Pitiful, I know. So being a bread lover, pizza is one of my favorite foods, but it is obviously not very nutritious. So the other day I was sitting around, moping a bit and thinking, “why can’t pizza be healthy?” After doing some internet searching and watching a few YouTube tutorials I figured out how to make pizza from cauliflower. Yes I said cauliflower. The cauliflower serves as the dough in the pizza, so you get to cut out that carb-loaded bread that I love oh so much. I know, that sounds nasty and completely unappealing. But I promise y’all that I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was! Cauliflower is basically a superfood so you reap a lot of benefits by incorporating it into your diet. It is a good source of protein, provides detoxification support to your body, and is even proven to contain a compound that kills cancer stem cells. I am a very picky eater myself, so I promise I wouldn’t recommend you anything I don’t think y’all would like too. After trying and incorporating several different sources recipes, here’s my recipe for cauliflower pizza. I think it came out pretty well.

I Was Here.

Hi Y’all!

Since this is my first post, I thought it would be appropriate for me to give y’all some insight as to why I decided to begin blogging. As I’m writing this, I’m still in complete awe of the fact that it is already June. We are 6 months into 2015. I know people say this every year, but WHEW! This year has flown by. And when I look back on all that has happened in my life in 6 months I am astounded. My life has done a complete 180 this year, and it has been for the better. Continue reading
