The Whole30


Last week I attempted the Whole30 diet and decided to share my results here. First I only stuck to the diet for 1 week. After researching lots of diets over the course of the last few months I looked into the Whole30 and thought, besides the dramatic cut of a few food groups, it could be a good option. This diet was very hard to stick to because it is not flexible for any lifestyle but it's own.

In case you were unaware the Whole30 diet is where you eat clean for 30 days and if you mess up once you are supposed to start back at day 1. This is supposed to completely reset your digestive system. You eat moderate portions of meat, seafood and eggs; lots of vegetables; some fruit; and natural fats.

This diet is very hard to stick to because you have to pretty much bring all of your food with you wherever you go. It is also very healthy because you cut out all of the processed foods you usually eat. If you are looking for a diet that would be more convenient, this would not be it. This diet is also very hard to shop for because you have to look at the ingredients of anything that has added sugar or preservatives.

Overall I felt tired on this diet and lost 2 lbs in the week that I tried it. For more information on this diet you can visit the Whole30 website here.

COLLEGE GROCERY STAPLES

It's Finally Friday!! The spring semester is in full swing for this girl, however, spring break is in 7 days and counting, so things are looking up! Today I am sharing my college grocery staples, because at least at my school the food is not great and I mainly go to the dining hall for dinner. I am gluten-free, so everything on this list to the best of my knowledge is gluten-free! I do 99% of my grocery shopping at Wegmans and if you are from New York (other than NYC) you know how amazing this grocery store is! Above I am wearing my typical errands outfit, comfy and warm!
Drinks - orange juice - cranberry juice - smart watr - k cups
Fruit - (for fruit I like to the prepared containers because this is a lot less work and there's not a lot of room to prepare fruit at college) - lemons - strawberries - raspberries - apples - pineapple
Cheese/Meat - cheese - Chobani greek yogurt - turkey sandwich meat - all natural coffee creamer
Other Staples - peanut butter - popcorn - trail mix - …

THE COZIEST THERMAL FOR WINTER

Today's outfit is what I wear is a great depiction of what I would love to wear everyday, thermals, my favorite leggings, and hunters which are great for the tons of snow we have in New York. I love wearing this outfit and outfits like it to my classes and like today, to run errands. This thermal is so warm and insanely cozy!

TWENTY THINGS I'VE LEARNED IN TWENTY YEARS

Well, it’s official, I’m no longer a teenager, on Sunday I turned 20! So, in honor of having two decades of my life under my belt, today I am sharing twenty things I have learned in the past twenty years! Holy crap, I cannot believe how old I am, now that I am writing this post, haha!
ONE – Stay positive Over the last year specifically I have really learned that positivity is one of the most important characteristics that I want to have. When someone thinks of me, I want them to think of a positive person. Just trying to be more positive really helps me to just have a better day and to be an overall happier person in general. While the rest of this post is not in order based on importance, this is my number one thing I have learned before I turned 20!
TWO – Be grateful I have realized it’s important to take the time to remember to be extremely grateful for everything I have, you never know how long you will have something. It’s important to be grateful especially for the little things in …
