Time to become faster, stronger, & healthier.

pretty much my life goals are to

  • own my own gym
  • own a golden retriever
  • have a cute baby that I can dress up
  • be able to go grocery shopping without looking at the prices of everything and then go to the checkout and be like “Oh wow that’s less than I thought it was gonna be”
  • go to some event that requires me to wear a ball gown
  • own a golden retriever 

This.

I am very sore.
After I stretched and foam rolled yesterday I went to chipotle with Cait and got a bowl (chicken, mild and corn salsa, quac, and lettuce) and a bag of chips. I ate it all..even the whole bag of chips. IT WAS SO GOOD. Ugh I love you so much Chipotle.
I fell asleep around 11 which is earlier than usual. Then I proceeded to wake up at 11:45 to what I thought was my bed shaking. I went to Caitlin’s room scared…hahaha. Now that I think back on it I think I was so tired that my muscles cramping felt like the bed shaking.
I slept for about 10 hours, meaning I woke up late for class. It was all good though. I only got there like 10 minutes late.
I just ate 3 eggs fried in Kerrygold butter and ugh it was so good. Fried eggs over easy are one of my many loves.
Now I am lying in bed talking to you guys because I feel bad for not updating more often. Here’s more about my ~personal~ life:

+ I’m still working at Olive Garden and I actually really like it. I host tonight at 4 yay (???????)+ The internship I mentioned a couple posts back is with my cousin’s art studio. I’ll do a post with more info about it later. Basically I’ll be doing social media/PR stuff for them.+ Geology is going well. I’m actually really enjoying learning about the earth and rocks even though learning about rocks can be slightly dull sometimes. We played with play doh today.+ I’m still loving living in this house with my best friends. We have a lot of fun hehe+ I won’t be going back to Crossfit COMO until probably September/October when I have a more steady income. I contacted the owner to explain this to him and he said that I can clean, do social media, etc. to save myself money when I come back. I’M SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS.+ I really want to try to find some Lurpak butter…+ And haloumi cheese….+ Oh yeah I want to try Keto. I’m going to talk to Cbel about this and ask for advice. Cbel if you are reading this I love you and can’t wait to chat hehe

Okay. I’m gonna stretch and go to Lucky’s and shower DOESN’T THAT SOUND WONDERFUL. I wish you lovely people could join me.
Ta ta for now <3

You don't really seem to love fitness blogging anymore. There's always something that keeps you from posting, and then you'll post once and then something else has you busy again. I don't know what the point of this ask is, just an observation. Is it still something you love?

It’s definitely still something I love!!!! Sometimes life just happens, you know? 

hElLllooooooOO

So I just had an awesome workout which I will post below, but I’m super tired so forgive me if this ain’t that exciting alright?

  • Selfie after my upper body workout on Monday YAY.
  • Lucky’s haul: I have a new obsession with this vanilla whole milk yogurt. IT IS SO GOOD. And mixed with that cereal it’s heavenly. Go buy it
  • Oh yeah I’m incorporating dairy into my meals again. Still only eating grains at one meal/for one snack a day. My tummy seems pretty happy about this. And I really enjoy cheese.
  • Here’s some random meals…ground beef cooked with corn, onion, and mixed greens. Topped with cheddar cheese and some random marinara cause why not.
  • I’ll put fried eggs on top of anything
  • LUCKY’S CURRY CHICKEN IS MY NEW OBSESSION
  • It was macaroni day yesterday. I ate this whole box.
  • Selfie while foam rolling after my workout today, which was:

Workout 7/10/14

- Rowing: 500m, 500m, 400m, all at about at 2:30 pace.
- Running: Ran 1.81 miles in 20 minutes. This felt pretty easy actually for not running in so long…the only reason I didn’t go longer was because my foot started hurting. Yuck.
- Cool down: Incline walking at 7.5% for 5 minutes. Foam rolling and stretching

  • I didn’t really know what I wanted to do today so I just did some random ~cardio~. I thought about doing legs but I need to work on becoming more flexible before that. I need to take better care of my back and hips.
  • I also don’t really know why I’m smiling in that selfie. I guess cause foam rolling hurts so good

Okay I LOVE YOU ALL VERY MUCH. Sending lots of light and love your way <3

So I have pictures and stuff to update you guys with YAYAY

But I have a test tomorrow and stuff to work on for my internship so if I don’t post today I’ll post tomorrow! 

I LOVE YOU GUYS

Hi! Would it be possible for you to do more daily meal posts? I've only recently started trying to live a healthier lifestyle and I feel like I'm doing great with exercising but I still struggle with what to eat sometimes :-(

Sure thing! I’ll do more regular posts next week since I work basically all weekend haha. 

No for you or no for everyone? (Like you don't eat low fat or no one should eat low fat?) besides, the lifestyle doesn't stress low fat - it's focus is on high carb (80%). A lot of people love this lifestyle and thrive on it. I think to each their own, everybody feels good on different lifestyles. (I personally thrive when I strive to get more protein haha)

I just think a lot of people are so in love with low fat, that they have no idea what it feels like to actually eat fat and enjoy it. 

So, no for me, and no for people who are doing it because they think fat is bad. 

what do you think about high carb low fat veganism? People on this lifestyle are ripped doing close to nothing!

no

no

no

that’s how i feel

anything that says ~low fat~ is an instant no from Becca

LCHF ebooks

butterfulbeing:

Hi guys! I thought I’d compile some ebooks on keto/LCHF if you’re interested in learning about the science and benefits of a low carb lifestyle. These are all highly recommended, well-written books on the subject, I hope they are of some use to you whether you are currently eating low carb or not….

Reblogging for future reference

how do I get it through to my friend that eating more doesnt mean you wont lose weight because she thinks that eating less = losing more but not when you're starving yourself with 1200 calories a day. Her sister in a fitness instructor and has told her than eating less means losing more but I'm sure that's not healthy nor up to date advice and she wont listen. She told me that I wont lose weight eating 2000 calories a day of healthy stuff. I'm so frustrated.

Maybe try to explain that food with more nutrient rich foods makes your body happy and more efficient (meaning ~burning~ more fat) as opposed to foods with barely any nutrients that will make your body unhappy and function LESS efficiently. 

Does anyone have an article or video that’s good to show people with this type of mindset? Because I’d love to have something like that to show friends who are skeptical as well. Sometimes it’s just so simple to me now that I forget that I thought the same way at a point in my life.
