Weekly Review | Excited And Fatigued

This past week seems to have simultaneously dragged on forever and zoomed by. Since BU didn't start school until Thursday, I was still on the cusp of getting into my full routine of training, coaching, and working. Not only that, I planned on having my season opener at the BU Multi-Team Meet on Thursday. Every day until then definitely seemed like it dragged on forever.

How To Transition And Stick To Healthy Habits

One of the main focuses of this blog is to document my transition to a healthier lifestyle, and how you can, too. So, every now and then I've made sure to highlight my goals of trying to eat healthier and how I've attempted to lead a healthier lifestyle overall.

As of late, I haven't mentioned it much because I've felt like I took two steps forward and five giant steps back. A few months ago, I had successfully weaned myself off soda, stopped eating candy, and was slowly but surely drinking more water every day. I had my meal planning and prepping down to a science and I felt awesome both physically and mentally.

Fast forward to today, and I'm back to drinking soda whenever I get the chance (i.e. whenever it's free), have fallen behind in my Sunday meal prep (but I'm working on it), and I'm 90% sure these headaches I keep getting after practice are due to dehydration (oops). All in all, I haven't gone back to square one, but I'm not where I want to be with my goals. All this means I'm going to start over in getting back into those great habits I was so proud of. So, today I'm sharing with you just how I transition and stick to healthy habits all in 2 easy steps!

Quick and Easy "Healthy" Burrito Recipe

So, I had the full intention to make an awesome "What I Ate Wednesday" post for today, but on Monday I woke up with a runny nose, and Tuesday I woke up with a full-blown cold.  This left me very forgetful, as I panicked and immediately tried to fend off the worst of it.  In fact, at this very moment I'm drinking gallons of OJ and waiting for my honey lemon tea to cool down.

Anyway, I thought I would share the things I remembered to capture, and hope this super easy, kind of healthy burrito recipe makes up for  it!

GEMMA'S Goals for October 2015

Because of how hectic September was for me I couldn't put together a good post on my goals for the month.  Now that I'm back in Boston, and getting back into a stable routine, I'm jumping back into my monthly goals to keep track of what I want to get out of each month.
