Happy Friday!

Tomorrow's finally the big day...moving day that is! I'm definitely one of those people who do not like change. I like to get comfortable somewhere and settle in. Unfortunately, since we're still renting, this isn't what happens 100%. I've never been one to get fully comfy and settled into a place that I know I'm going to be leaving in a year. Is anyone else like that? I am going to try to make this next apartment a little more homey and decorated just so that it can be enjoyed a little more. I'm finally going to decorate my office, put up fall decor immediately, and get some photos made up of Chandler and I, Diesel, the cats, and more. Once we're all settled in to our new apartment I want to give you all a home tour!



Venus Lace Detail Maxi Dress

Happy Wednesday!

Raise your hand if you don't want summer to end. Now, raise your hand if you're over this heat and are ready for fall. Ha! I feel like I'd get mutual responses. It's sad to see summer go but I'm also very excited about the cool temps ahead (hopefully soon if you live in Florida like me ha!).

Before the season is "officially" over, I have a few more summer looks that I wanted to share! This  adorable Lace Detail Maxi Dress from Venus is one of them! I frequently look at their dress collection and I always find something that I love!

Why Risk Taking Is Important

Happy Monday!

My entire life, I have always played it safe. Now, that isn't necessarily a bad thing because I've never gotten myself into a situation where I was thinking "oh shit, I don't know how I'm going to get out of this." However, there's a difference between stepping outside your comfort zone and surpassing it so far that you've dug yourself into a deep ditch.

Happy Friday!

This month has been insane you guys. Between everything involved in the move next week (I still haven't packed, YIKES!) and my blog and work, I have just been so so busy! I do enjoy being busy though. Anyone else? I am excited for the fun weekend ahead. Tomorrow I am attending my first horse show which will be really cool to see and on Sunday we are going to the Jags game. They won their last game so I'm hoping the momentum stays!


What Are Macros And How Do I Track Them?

Wednesday, September 12, 2018

Happy Wednesday!

I have been training with Savanna for a few months now and absolutely love all of my workouts and advice she has given me. One of the first things she told me when we started my program was that I needed to track my macros. 

Long story short, macros are the exact amounts of protein, carbs, and fat that your body needs each day. If you eat more or less you're not helping yourself. These macros are determined from your level of activity, current weight, goal weight, height, etc. The reason why Savanna and I prefer this over calorie counting is because there's less guilt. With macros you are able to enjoy the types of foods you love without entirely limiting yourself. For instance I love carbs, so my diet consists of a higher carb diet with a decent amount of protein and a slightly lower amount of fat.
