Healthy On-the-Go Lunch Idea

Food + Travel, Health + Fitness, Uncategorized

I am always on the go.

Having quick, dishes-free lunches is essential. I am also in college and can’t afford going out to eat everyday (even though sometimes I do..oops).

So for me, this quick, inexpensive, and healthy lunch is a life saver.

I will call it: The Greek Spinach Wrap (only because there is tzatziki in it lol)

So what are the ingredients?

  • spinach wrap
  • tzatziki sauce
  • chicken or turkey
  • choice of lettuce
  • banana peppers
  • avocados (optional)
  • cucumber

Why do I love it?

First of all, it tastes amazing with like no effort what so ever.

Did I mention no dishes? (I wrap it in tin foil)

It’s pretty healthy

Easy to make

Not a basic sandwich

You can switch up the ingredients and it will most likely still taste bomb

It’s not that messy or loud to chew (very important because I usually eat in class- yes I’m that person)

Please try and let me know what you think 🙂

Thanks for reading, have a happy and healthy Tuesday!

Gymtimidation – Why Do We Get It?

Advice + Inspiration, Health + Fitness, Uncategorized

Omg, I feel like everyone on the face of the planet has experienced this- Gymtimidation.

Why do we get it? I mean we go to the gym for noble reasons – self betterment, to boost our moods, or to work off stress. Shouldn’t we just be proud that we’re at the gym? 

It’s funny too because we’re all thinking that people are judging us when really we are just judging ourselves!

So confession – I went back to the gym yesterday (it had been almost a week). I used to go to the gym every single day with out pause. I had the same routine down- run on the elliptical for 30 minutes and then do some crunches and call it a day. I was scared to branch out and try something new because I had these workouts to a T. When summer came, my free school gym membership was no longer valid, and I did not go to the gym ONCE.

Now that school’s back- I’ve gone to the gym a few times, but I have mostly been doing youtube video workouts, which I highly recommend if you can hold yourself accountable that way. Anyways, when I work out at home I can do whatever I want. I’ll notice myself laughing when I look funny doing a workout a certain way, but continue to do it regardless.

Thinking about how freely and excited I am to workout at home, while I was at the gym yesterday, made me realize:

I’m going to the gym for me.

Oh that person thinks I run funny?

I think that too. It’s hilarious.

But I am here for me not to impress you.

I’m here to become the best version of myself.

I will push boundaries and enjoy this time at the gym

why?

Because this is for me. No one else.  

Thanks for reading. Do you and be less hard on yourself! When in doubt- laugh it out!
