The GOOD Fest, Philly, & Friends IRL

This post is a tad late, but better late than never, right? THE GOOD FEST. Let’s talk about it. I have so many things to say about the week, the event, the people…everything. To sum it up, it was definitely the best event I’ve ever attended. The Fest was really more of an “experience” than simply an event. I met so many incredible people and left the day feeling beyond inspired. It might sound corny, but I learned a lot about myself that week, and I came back with a deeper motivation than ever before to pursue my passions. Right.…

Why I Eat Raw Meat – The Raw Paleo Diet

This post might seem like it’s coming out of nowhere, but I promise it’s not. I’ve been dying to write about this for awhile, but I didn’t want to share it until I had done self-experimentation for long enough to really be able to tell how it’s been working for my body. I also want to preface this with some classic, but always necessary, disclaimers. I want to remind you that the purpose of my blog, and this post, is to share my personal experiences with you. This is not medical advice. I’m not telling you to do anything I do or recommending…

My Fitness Journey, Part 2

WELCOME WELCOME to Part 2 of the story of my fitness journey! This is where it gets interesting. If you haven’t read Part 1 yet, you can do that here. If you’re already caught up, I’ll pick up where I left off. The addiction. I was very disciplined with my fitness routine. Over time, I started to feel really tired. Mentally and physically. Every day my body ached. I remember the torture of walking to class. The hills! I didn’t want to get out of bed. I laid in bed as often as I could, but I mustered up the energy to do my workout…

My Fitness Journey, Part 1

I’ve talked about my fitness journey here and there before, but I’ve never really put it all in one place. It’s not all that riveting, minus the exercise addiction part, but I do want to share my journey with you, because fitness is such an important part of my life now. My relationship with fitness has evolved a lot over time. I spent most of my life hating exercise, but about two years ago, I fell completely in love with it. Now, I cannot imagine my life without it. My relationship with fitness went from nonexistent to half-assed to misinformed to…

My Experience with Cryotherapy & Cryo Facials

Cryotherapy. Cold magic? Maybe. Cryotherapy has been the very cool thing to do lately (pun intended), and it seems to be popping up everywhere. I had my first cryotherapy session as a surprise birthday present from Jordan last week, and after posting about it on social media and in my birthday blog post, I received a ton of questions about cryo. What was it like? What are the benefits?! Is it torturous? For anyone unfamiliar with cryotherapy, I wanted to do a quick little recap of my experience, what it is, my thoughts, etc. Cryotherapy is, simply put, cold therapy. There are different…
