Hey beautiful friends! How was everyone’s Halloween weekend?
Mine wasn’t really “Halloween-ish”, but if you read my post from last night, you all know that I did get to enjoy a favourite Halloween movie of mine It was a lazy kind of night. I actually ended up falling asleep on my couch… I have no problem with this though. My couch is like heaven. Literally, you would think that you are sleeping on a big fluffy cloud It’s pretty amazing. Actually, the first night that I ever spent in my apartment was on my couch One of the best sleeps ever
Pure comfort right there!
After waking up from the most lovely sleep on my wonderful couch, I enjoyed an amazing breakfast of oats, blackberries, and eggs which was followed by a sweaty and beastly workout I love my Sunday workouts They are all about hammies and glutes! I did this workout and left the gym with jellified legs Always a great feeling after a heavy leg workout. Today, I was able to increase my weights for the kneeling cable kick backs and plié squats which made me feel very happy I always love moving up the weights! I seriously think this is my favourite workout of my entire week!
Once I got back from the gym, I jumped into the shower and began to get ready for student council’s BOOM day!
Since I would be attending BOOM day from 12:00 pm until 6:00 pm, I made sure to pack two meals to take along with me
So, I made a tofu wrap for lunch (yay, meatless meal!) and a ginormous chicken salad for snack time which I typically have around 3:00 pm
Since I have upped my cals, my meals sometimes seem quite large and overwhelming, but it’s just something I gotta do to reach the goals I have in mind
Personally, I love doing meal prep for upcoming days. Often, I hear people commenting on the fact that meal prep is “time consuming” and that they simply “do not have enough time”, but personally, I think doing meal prep is totally worth it. By doing meal prep for days that I won’t be at home makes me feel confident that I will be eating in a way that is consistent with my goals and compliments my lifestyle
Sometimes, I get the odd look from people around me when I carry around my cooler bag from class to class, but I just remind myself that I am living how I want to live and doing what works best for me
Being confident in how you life your life is definitely a key to happiness.
I’ll admit, I am not always confident in everything I do. I am still figuring things out and learning what works for me, but I think that we all need to trust ourselves and believe that it will all work out in the end
Everyone’s body is different. Remember that. What works for one person, may not work for you.
There is no perfect formula for life that we can get our hands on that will allow us to achieve the perfect life, physique, grades in school, etc. Like I said, we just need to experiment and learn what works for us because each of us are unique. Each of us have different personalities, likes, dislikes, work habits, schedules, etc., so the best way to live your life with complete happiness is to accept who you are and value all of your unique characteristics.
Appreciate the person God created you to be and embrace the life he has given you
I love the word embrace. There’s something about it that empowers me to accept what has been given to me.

I hope you enjoyed my post and continue living that wonderful life God has granted you with positivity and appreciation! We are sure lucky people!
What is a unique characteristic of yours that you adore?
Is there characteristic of yours should you give more appreciation towards?
Do you do meal prep?
I am off to study! Only two sleeps until my Advanced Food Science exam and I am freaking. But, I must trust that everything will work out in the end, right?
Looking forward to chatting with you all tomorrow! Meatless Monday
