Being KIND

Maybe it was because of Friday morning’s breakfast, but lately I’ve been being very KIND to myself in many ways:

  • I’ve been eating food that I like and always adding a little something special to each dish. Good food thats good for me makes me feel good. It’s that simple
  • I’ve been having invigorating and challenging workouts most days complete with inspirational music. I make my routines f.u.n. I love sweating and using my body to it’s fullest potential. It helps me to appreciate what my body can do.
  • I’ve been trying to stop negative self talk and cut myself more slack. I can be very hard on myself and while it’ll always be a struggle, I feel like I’ve been thinking more positively lately 🙂

SO LET’S REWIND to Friday. After having that KIND bar which, I thought was OKAY…a little to crunchy for my taste…

I had an AMAZING combo for lunch:

The salad: spinach,tofu,peas,feta,and walnuts. The main event: tomatoes with pesto,carrots,onions,egg whites,and marinated mushrooms. MMM-MMM-MMM

I went to the gym after class and did a mean:

30 minutes on the precore

10 minutes running

AND Friday night  for dinner I went to an event where I could not get good pictures of the meal, but I had tofu,challah bread,sweet carrots, and some tomato-cucumber salad. Then I spent a night out… doing the college thang 😉

TODAY: I was VERY kind to myself with this  tangy yet nutty bowl of oatmeal, raspberry preserves,plain yogurt, honey, and PB

Then I had more yogurt,pb,grapes, and melon. HUNGRY GIRL TODAY

During the day I did a lot of homework, but I managed to make it to the gym!

I did :

40 minutes on the precore….and it felt soo gooooooooood

10 minutes on the bike


An “every color” salad. I’ll let you try and figure out what went in there 😉

AND my crazy pesto protein dish: egg whites,shrimp,tofu,tomatoes, carrots, and marinated mushrooms in pesto. I DIED… it was so good ( don’t let looks deceive you haha)

TONIGHT IM BEING KIND TOO! I’m giving myself a “night off” from college weekend activities to catch up on work and get to bed relatively early. Next week is gonna be hectic so tonight is a much needed.

I cannot wait to put my feet up after all this work is done

(salty boots from friday)


WHAT HAVE YOU DONE LATELY THAT WAS K.I.N.D FOR YOURSELF??? I hope you have more than just one thing 🙂


WELL…I’m off to do more work THEN more tomorrow and basically this week will be work work work for me….sooo I’m trying to psych myself up now 🙂 😦 🙂 😦 ….by staying positive 🙂
