Hellooooo internet world. A week and a half ago, I did an update on my Ideal Protein journey so far and I was so pumped, so positive, so excited. I was ready to tackle the remaining weeks ( I thought I had a few left AT LEAST ) & I never thought I’d be doing my final journey post so soon. But here I am. Week 2 ( 2.5 to be exact, eek ) and I am finished. I thought that I’d lose weight slower because I really didn’t have THAT much to lose anyway and this is typically a diet that people use who have to lose HUGE amounts, but when I started I lost 6.4 pounds in 7 days and over the course of the next 7 days, I lost another 2.4. I…

Well hello again, my sweet friends. Look at me being all obsessed with my blog lately. I haven’t been this active so many days in a row in a long, long time. You could say I am definitely back in love with it. It has to be the weather. It’s gorgeous. Even the rainy days don’t suck because it’s not pitch black at 4:40pm and freezing cold & snowy / icy. Actually, maybe it’s because school is almost done. I only have 1 paper and 1 test left. Plus 4 discussion posts but ehhh those are easy peasy lemon squeezy. No, no, it has to be because Cuba is basically a month away. Or maybe it’s the fact I’m feeling SO MUCH better about myself. Yes, that’s definitely what it is. The Ideal Protein Protocol…

Happy Friday to you! Today I thought it would be fun to share a few favourites from the past week. As you may or may not know, this past week I’ve been doing the Ideal Protein Protocol. It’s been an eye-opening experience so far and I’ve been researching healthy recipes to try when I’m finished IPP ( as well as procrastinating a 3,000 word paper but you know… )! The internet is quite possibly my favourite thing & I spend FAR too much time on it… whether I’m browsing what my friends are up to on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter or bouncing from blog to blog, I’m almost always connected when I have free time. So over the past week while I’ve been procrastinating my paper and salivating at the thought of  eating whatever I…

On Saturday, I posted about why I chose to follow the Ideal Protein Protocol and I promised that I would go in to detail about what it is in “tomorrow’s post” ( AKA yesterday ) & then exhaustion set in and I chose a Lush bubblebath and sleeping at 9pm over blogging. <<< IPP is wearing me down. I’ve been awake for about 2 hours minutes after a 12-hour sleep last night and I’m already ready for a nap… #thestruggleisreal This weekend has been a trying time. If Daniel and I can make it through this, then we can make it through ANYTHING the world throws at us ( kidding, but not really haha ). Same goes with me and my mom. It’s been a few days full of ups and downs, moments of anger and sadness, extreme…

Hi, hello, good morning, good afternoon, good evening. Today I want to share something new that I am embarking on. I’ve never been one to follow fad diets, change my lifestyle intensely ( except when I found out I was gluten sensitive ) or even one to really CARE about what I was putting in my body. I’ve always been slender for my height ( I’m 5’7″ – 8″ depends on the day haha ) and I’ve always been active, through dance, soccer, running, yoga and at-home workouts. My mom always compliments me on what / how I eat. She often says things like “I’m SO proud of how you fuel your body” or “I’m so impressed that you incorporate fruits and veggies into your meals”. My family ( especially the women in the fam…
