Anonymous said: What does a typical weekly grocery list look like for you? (Ps love your blog and everything about you)

Hi!! Thanks!! My grocery list is filled with foods that are wholesome and essentially would all go together well for any meal. Grocery list for this week:

  • Bananas
  • Greens (this week was arugula) 
  • Avocados
  • Berries (this week was strawberries)
  • Cucumber
  • Beets
  • Enough green juices to have one a day
  • Protein bars (for a quick pick-me-up)
  • Coconut yogurt
  • Chickpeas
  • Apples
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Sea salt cashew/pistachio/almond mix

I should also note that due to my work, I eat out two-three times during the week so this isn’t a full scope of what I’m actually consuming.

Thanks for reading xo

Anonymous said: Please, walk me through how you wake up at 5:30 to exercise. Are you naturally a morning person or do you have to throw yourself out of bed? I want to be an AM exerciser but I consistently press snooze. Help! Yours truly, Zzzzzzzzzzz

Hahaha. I am naturally a morning person BUT I wasn’t always that way. I slowly had to train my body to wake up early: first at 8AM, then 7:30AM, then 7AM and so on. Eventually 5:30AM felt like a breeze.

I also learned to make a habit out of my morning routine: alarm goes off, snooze, tell myself I’ll have a bad day if I don’t work out, roll my eyes, get up, brush my teeth, put my work out gear on, start the music, and begin working out. Mine is pretty elaborate, but making a routine will make the process a lot easier, no matter if it’s just waking up early or waking up with a specific goal in mind.

Believe, achieve. Doubt, you’re out.

You read. A lot. And you have to just keep in the streets to see what everyone is wearing + who’s selling what.
