About

I’ll admit, writing this “About Me” is actually pretty daunting. Your girl has so many layers, I’m basically and onion. Nutrition, fitness, cooking, fashion, I love them all! To simplify things, I’m going to break my bio down into little sections and write a blurb about each.

Fitness-

IMG_3502

Running, volleyball, weightlifting, yoga, Pilates, HIIT, you name it, I’ll try it! Personally, I loving mixing up my routine and incorporating various types of training into each workout. It makes things interesting and keeps my body guessing. The reason this blog is PILATES, Pearls, and Peanut Butter is because my “gateway” into fitness (beyond your typical active, sport-playing kid stuff) was starting Blogilates all the way back in 6th grade.

Food-

When I was younger, I didn’t appreciate or pay attention to the food I ate nearly as much. However, around 8th grade, I started giving more thought to how I fueled my body. I’ll admit, it was rough at first. What the heck was quinoa and how did you even pronounce it?!? What made “superfoods” so super? If green juice was so healthy, why did it taste like death? In part due to life handing me some lemons (as described under “Health”), my knowledge of nutrition and passion for cooking grew. I’m conscious of the ingredients that go into my food and buy primarily organic produce and meats. I believe that cooking and taking time to learn and care about your food is the #1 way to live a healthy life. Honestly, it’s really weird to compare how I used to eat to how I do now. I would have thought I’d be saying “YES! brussels sprouts!”, putting vegetables into my desserts, or be sneaking kombucha into the movie theater.

Fashion-

I’ve loved putting outfits together since a young age. Granted, when I was younger this meant wearing a Disney princess costume with flip flops in the middle of winter (I refused to wear close toed shoes for basically the first 6 years of my life- I liked “wiggle room”). But hey, I always have been committed to accessorizing. Wand and all 😉 .

I wear pearls with my yoga pants, I love wearing bright, bold colors, pattern mixing (when done carefully) is my jam, and I believe that the way you carry yourself (your walk, posture, and overall demeanor) is what truly makes or breaks an outfit.

IMG_3161Health-

For months, I had been suffering from a constant headache, fogginess, and was extremely lethargic. In an attempt to mend these issues, with the support of and integrative doctor, I’ve taken dairy, soy, and gluten out of my diet. Thankfully, this has helped and I no longer suffer from chronic headaches. Additionally, I’ve had GERD since birth. When I was younger, I was placed on an acid reducer by a specialist and continued to take it for about 7-8 years. If you know anything about the gut and nutrient absorption, you’d know that this was NOT a good idea, especially considering I was growing. This is believed to be the cause of my current “gut imbalances” and I’m still working with an integrative doctor to mend my digestive issues.

Personal-

I’m the youngest of 4 by a stretch, so I’ve always been thought of as “13 going on 30”. I have 2 wonderful dogs Annabelle (a goldendoodle) and Lucy (a schnoodle) and a bunny named Barley. He’s a special bunny since his head is turned sideways. A few years ago, our vet/neighbor took him in after he’d been abandoned and somehow we ended up with him as our pet. But hey, that little head quirk is quite endearing and he’s a real cuddler.

    I love to learn about what you currently study, your age, and what you work as! This was a nice summary about your past, but I really want to know what you currently do. For example I study acting and I’m also a holistic health coach. I Blog and YouTube, and I’m 19 living in Toronto Canada 🙂

    Oh man! So sorry to hear about your migraines. I’ve had severe migraine since 13 years old and I’m 48. You’re on a good track with watching the food. You may already know this, but Be particularly careful with any stabilizers or gums (carrageenan, guar gum, locust bean gum) and also tyramine inducers like peanuts. I know, I know. I’m sorry. I know you love your peanut butter. Turned out to be one of my worst triggers. Best of luck… And I’m thrilled to see your blog is up! Loved seeing your food posts on Instagram.

      Migraines really are tough, they run in my family. I’ve been watching out for carageenan for a while since I heard it was a carcinogen, but I didn’t know guar gum and locust bean gum should be avoided too. Thanks for the tip! Since my headaches have been mostly better, except when triggered by factors like lack of sleep, stress, or hunger, I think I lucked out with peanuts not being a trigger for me. Thank you so much for your support!
