I love how this says “NO to unhealthy food (in large quantities)”. Promoting healthy relationships with food is great, and I’m glad this said this the way it did.
I love how it says “NO self-hate”. I will be following this person for that reason alone <3
Life of a Healthy College Girl continued!
My busy schedule always requires some strategic planning when it comes to the foods I’m going to eat for the week.
Since my college classes start SO early in the morning, I don’t have time to wake up, AND get fabulous, AND take my little yorkie for her morning walk, AND make a fruit smoothie for breakfast… so in order to fit in my smoothies, I’ve CREATED A GENIUS PLAN that I’m going to share with you!
I’ve started doing my grocery shopping on Sundays now, and when I get home I immediately cut up the fruit that I get and organize it into plastic wear!
THIS MAKES MY MORNING SMOOTHIES SO EASY TO MAKE!
My newly revised quick and easy morning smoothie routine:
- Open the fridge and pick the 2-4 fruits I want in my smoothie that morning
- Toss the fruits of choice in the blender
- add a few scoops of protein powder
- throw in a few ice cubes a
- (Then comes my favorite part) BLEND IT ALL TOGETHER!!!! (Don’t judge me for my weird obsession with blending things…. I’d probably blend my cell phone if it got too close)
It literally takes me no more than 2 mins every morning to make my smoothies and they’re SO full of nutrients and I can get a great healthy start to my day!
TRY IT FOR YOURSELF!!!
Pre-cut some fruit tonight and make smoothies every day this week. I bet you anything you’ll feel better than you’ve ever felt :)
Strong, Fit and FABULOUS!

I do go to a gym. The gym I work for is tiny, but you don’t need too much to stay healthy. I go 5-6 times a week. My advice for beginners is to read my FAQ and don’t hesitate if you have any questions about anything whatsoever ;D
I use picmonkey.com. At least Im’ 99% sure that’s the website. I’m not on my own computer so I can’t look it up, but it’s something really close to that. :P I’m sure you can google it and like ten more will come up too!
wiser words have seldom been spoken.
and none by so awesome a character <3 lol
For everything this is true.
Hello there, thank you! :) I’m a personal trainer, not a nutritionist (yet!) I also don’t have very much knowledge on the subject. I’m not a doctor so my answer is just coming from trainings I’ve been through in the health and wellness program at my school. I know those things can definitely have an effect on your period. To my knowledge, amennorhea from the diet and exercise view is caused from working out too much and not eating enough. That’s why it happens with people who are anorexic. Also, if you’re an athlete, amennorhea can occur (still not saying it’s healthy because it’s still cause by unhealthy actions). To make it normal, I have been told in my training that you may eventually get it back if you eat more, eat healthy and don’t exercise too much. However, since you don’t have pure amennorhea, you’re just irregular. A lot of women are just born irregular. I was and I had to take birth control to regulate it. So this (your cycle not BC… unless you’re considering that option) is definitely something to talk to your doctor about again.
Allow yoruself to have what you want once a week (within reason) This way you can push til the end of the week with healthy foods knowing you’re going to earn that candy bar or whatever it is you crave. Then after you have it, you’re satisfied until next week. So now you can eat healthy without giving up what you love. This also helps you to avoid a binge :D
Idk how messed up your knee is or how you messed it up so it’s really hard for me to give you advice on that. I would talk to a doctor or physical therapist about that depending on the intensity of the “mess up”. If you have already talked to a doctor, I would suggest staying off of it until (s)he gives you the a-okay. If you work your knee while injured, you can mess it up for life. So it’s better to stay off of it for a few week than to have a bad knee forever.
