Thank god it’s Thursday !

I am so happy it’s finally Thursday ! Why, you might ask?! .. Because my spring break has just officially begun, and it was a much needed break indeed πŸ˜‰ !

So I figure id share with you guys some of my recent creations !
This is another bad picture – I blame my iPhone ! But regardless of my poor photography skills, this is a mixed green salad , grilled chicken , peppers, and radishes of course. Radishes are
My new favorite veggie; they add a nice crunch to the salad πŸ™‚

… So I totally have a coffee addiction. Guilty as charged. I probably drink about 4 cups a day ! I know it’s not good for me, so I’ve slowly been switching to tea. But may I suggest toasted almond coffee from Dunkin ! I get it black and add a few splendas, always a nice pick me up πŸ™‚

This was an afternoon snack/ after lunch dessert. I crumbled up 2 rice cakes , cut up some pear, and dipped into Walden Farm’s maple syrup ! I also had a cup of spiced apple chai tea on the side.

So I found these lovely delicious wraps today in the store and had to have em ! They’re low carb, high protein, and only 50 cals per wrap ! .. And they inspired a delicious post workout treat….

And here is the post workout snack ! I used better’n pb , some blue berries, and some kamut puffs for a crunch in the wrap. IT WAS AWESOME πŸ™‚ I suggest you try it out ! Got my protein, carbs, and fruit all in one! Plus they say sugar (found in the blueberries) helps repair and stimulate muscle growth ! Win-win situation.

And last but not least ! I made some kale chips today. They were pretty good and easy to make. I used kale leaves (obviii) , Pam organic canola oil spray, some old bay , and pepper ! My momma liked them, so that’s how you know they’re good. She usually makes funny faces at the healthy food I eat :p one day she’ll learn. I love her to death though. We’re best friends ❀

I’m one busy girl

So I’ve realized today how busy I always seem to be ! It’s crazy! I’m always running from school, to studying, to the gym, to cleaning and doing laundry. – seems like a hectic schedule right ? But today I realized if I cut out all the seemingly insignificant procrastination I acquire on a daily basis, then I have a good amount of freed up time. I think a lot of times we don’t realize how easily a few minutes checking twitter can turn into a half hour. I appreciate ever second of life and I’m no fan of killing time. Time is precious !

Anyway! On another note here are some recent eats !
This is a poor picture of a great mixed greens salad , with grilled chicken from wegmans, peppers, and radishes ! Yum!

This is a delicious protein shake! It was made with cookies and cream iso protein, a half cup of almond milk, a half of a banana, a little bit of sugar free Da Vinci vanilla syrup, some truvia, and some cinnamon ! Tastes like ice cream πŸ™‚

Well folks, thats all for now πŸ˜‰ catch you all later.

Hello beautiful people :)

Well, this being my first post, I guess I should tell you all a little about myself! My names Danielle and I am 21 years old. I have a passion for fitness, health, and general well being of the mind, body, & spirit. God comes first in my life, and he always will. He has continuously performed miracles in my life, and I am beyond grateful for all he has done. I thank God everyday for all of the miracles I have seen, and his amazing grace! I love him. πŸ™‚ so here is my general little about me spiel: Β I am a very confident person, never easily influenced. I’ll never hide my intelligence because I fear what people will think. I have no fear for I have God. I have a love for God and all of God’s people. My heart’s too big and sometimes that causes me pain, but as long as it makes others happy, then I’m happy in some way or another. I like to make people smile πŸ™‚ I believe a smile can change the world, and a few words can set it on fire. I guarantee I’m the most unique person you’ll ever come across. I take pride in being an individual and not following the crowd. You’ll never catch me sacrificing my morals and values to fit in — i don’t need to “fit in”. I seem to find my own way in life and people tend to follow. I am definitely a leader. I have a love for learning. I’m constantly educating myself! Whether I’m folding laundry and listening to Joel Osteen, or driving and listening to Robb Wolf’s podcast, or catching up on world news on NPR, or reading a new book for fun–I’m constantly trying to increase myself! My number one motto in life is to never give up or give in, go all out and push through the pain. A little bit of Β pain begets change and change causes growth! Feel free to leave me a comment! I’d love to hear from you!
