Can anyone else relate?
Your late 20s are the awkward growing your bangs out stage when half your friends are married and/or have kids & half your friends are still at the bar until 3 am.
Quite frankly I'm not down for any of that..right now😜
There's nothing wrong with either but I know for a fact someone else out there is thinking like me tonight: a perfect Friday night is slow, calm, unplugged, a fab view, a fresh juicy plate & a whole lot of nothing 💕
May seem weird but I don't need to have plans to have fun. I don't need to feel pressured to do what everyone else is doing to fit in. I don't need to get blackout & spend a ridiculous amount of money to prove my weekend was fun.
Your 20s are for exploring, for learning, growing, taking in the moments. I spent far too long trying to fit in with everyone else.
Tonight I'm happy to stand on my own two feet + be quite happy just being ME✨
So content 😌 // Today was amazing. Got a workout in this morning, took on my first day volunteering at a physical therapy clinic, and now I'm cozied up with this bowl of goods reflecting back on it all. Everything went so right today. If only that were always the case... but I'm praying that I can come to be content in ALL things. That when my world gets shaken I can immediately remind myself who it is I'm rooted in. Because we can endure any trial when our confidence is in Jesus.

Nutrition is not low-fat. It's not low-calorie. It's not being hungry or feeling deprived. It's nourishing your body with real, whole foods so that you are consistently satisfied and energized to live life to the fullest💕😋
Vacation calories don't count, right? White chocolate ice cream with raspberry swirl and dark chocolate ganache chips for me, cookie dough for K. If all Maryland summer days were like this, I could live here forever. #stillteamPNWtho#havenspartyof2
Homemade chicken tacos with @wholefoods organic chicken breast and sautéed onions, zucchini and garlic. Wrapped them in @sietefoods almond flour tortillas and topped them with some mango, tomato, red onion and fresh cilantro😋 happy weekend!! #tacos#healthydinner#eeeeeats
Sit down... be humble. That's exactly what I did today at lunch at @cafegratitude! I got the I am *humble* bowl, and my sister got the I am magical sandwhich. We split each other's of course, and of course I had to get dessert after. If anyone knows me, they would know I have a crazy sweet tooth, and a hollow leg/ second stomach just for dessert😎😂🤷♀️ got the tiramisu and it was 👌 of course! Who knew all this vegan food could be so delicious! #kassidyandkale#cafegratitude
So I kinda went to @cafegratitude for lunch today as well🙊😂 anyone who has gone knows that these sweet potato fries are the jam💯👌 I don't think I have ever had any food better in my entire life. No joke. I could eat these everyday for the rest of my life and I would be one happy camper😎 these fries and sauce are on another level, they aren't like your typical sweet potato fries! If you ever go to @cafegratitude get these and you won't regret it! #kassidyandkale#cafegratitude
Friday night munchies on point! 🍪 @chronicstrength Protein Cookie Dough to the rescue!😋A guilt free, healthy treat that tastes just like the real deal.💪🏼One bite is all you'll need, but there's no guarantee you won't go back for more!☠ ⚠️You may become addicted⚠️ @chronicstrengthproteinkitchen 🌿
Since @cafegratitude was so good on Wednesday, my sister and I had to go back! This time we went this morning and got two donuts and a cinnamon roll, then a mini banana bread not pictured! We made this stop right before we headed to Torrey Pines to run! Perfect pre workout meal huh😂😳🙊 everything was so *moist*😣 sorry I had to use that word, it was the only way to describe how good these were!😆 I want a @cafegratitude in Arizona so bad!!!! #kassidyandkale#cafegratitude
Morning run views on Torrey Pines mountain😌 God's creations are so beautiful and breath taking. I think we all need to slow down at times and take a moment to be grateful. I am so grateful for this trip I was able to take with my sister, my amazing family, the ability I have to be able to run, and God's strength to overcome my past horrible eating disorder. Life is 💯 times better without it, I can't ever imagine going back to my old ways Life is so much more than calories and weight. I don't want to look back on my life and realize that is all I worried about. It's not like controlling every little thing I ate and being thin and fragile made me a better person, all it did was make me a mean, anxious, distant person and I never want to be her again. I want to be the true me and I can't do that without living my life and enjoying all the food within it as well!❤ #kassidyandkale#kassidytravels#eatingdisorderrecovery#torreypines
I'm going to be transparent here: somedays bulking is HARD AF especially being a lean bean my whole life. Then I remind of the reason why I'm doing this and how necessary it is.
Here's the thing:
If you want to make progress in this sport, you NEED to go through a period of growth. And in order to do that you need to be in a calorie surplus and be willing to be a little uncomfortable.
Improvements are made in the off-season- mentally AND physically.
You aren't going to be gaining any muscle in a calorie deficient or while on prep and you sure aren't going to be lifting PRs in the gym every week like I am currently.
Like @nickkomodina said in in @desb___ latest YouTube video: if you knew you could win your pro card (or just achieve whatever your goal is) if you spent a couple months being uncomfortable, would it be worth it?
The obvious answer is yes to me. You have to keep your long term goals in perspective in this sport. It would be relatively easy for me to stay stagnant with my goals and never reach higher, but I'm not about that life. There's NO such thing as progressing inside your comfort zone end of story-and the progress I've made these past 6 months blows my own mind. Be comfortable with being uncomfortable💪🏼✨ #progress
Quick dinner before I head out with a friend 😃 but of course ruined by my father commenting on how much I eat while he is eating some frozen pasta shit. Hey guys - if you've ever told someone they eat a lot can you tell me why? Like I would never say that to anyone? And then my parents want to wonder why I overanalyze everything that goes into my body and where all the body image issues come from? Sorry 🙁 I never post anything but positive vibes on here just frustrated. Working on getting my own place and life together. It's only been a week since I moved back but I'm already stressed not having my own space. Sigh. Hope you all have a great weekend 😘 Chicken sausage + cauli rice + roasted brussel sprouts + carrots + kale + everything but the bagel seasoning. 🍽🍴
Say hello to your granny's cottage cheese/canned pineapple cup's more sophisticated cousin:
A scoop of rich creamy ricotta cheese topped with plum and juicy local strawberries all drizzled with a syrupy stream of honey. Like a crustless cheesecake of sorts and definitely less lumpy than its cousin. Enjoy!
My weekend is complete : 🌿Dinner by my aunt a plant based shabbat what more can you ask for ?

Because my day wouldn't be complete without sharing my love for PINK.. 🎀 💕#HappyNationalPinkDay to everyone who loves pink as much as I do! 💖 ••• Fun fact about me: When I turned 9 years old my mom told me to choose a theme for my 9th birthday party to.. I made up my own "PINK EVERYTHING birthday party theme" it literally was a dream come true💞😂🙊
Happy Friday, hope everyone has a fun filled weekend!!!👙
Guys I really need to stop getting bored and going to @wholefoods. Bad things happen when I do that...like finding these two puppies from @go_raw. All ingredients are clean and are considered #whole30compliant ! And boy are they good! The apricot flavor is going away so it's a little cheaper than the other one so I suggest hightailing it to @whole foods to get some. I may have bought 4. 🙈🙈🙈
A trip to the farmers market for this deliciousness!🍒Not only are they yummy but are said to help prevent and heal disease. Cherries, along with many other berries, are a rich source of antioxidants. They help prevent or repair the damage that is done to the body's cells by free radicals. This means that antioxidants replace free radicals in your body before they can cause any damage.😋
Been a CRAZZY day so far!! I currently don't have Wifi at my apartment so that meant gym workout for me today! 💪💪But not even mad because It was great to get in some heavier weight lifting today! & even made some new friends while I was there !👯 don't get me wrong, I LOVE my at home workouts & the results I have gotten are amazing. But I believe all forms of exercise are a great option!!! I myself love Bootcamp workouts, heavy lifting, crossfit, & various other workout classes !! I think some people get turned off by coaching because they believe that they must only ever do at home workouts for the rest of forever. 😂While there is nothing wrong with that, being a coach is SO MUCH MORE than just at home workouts. It's about helping others learn how to love fitness again or for the first time ever, it's about sharing healthful ways to live better each day, & it's about creating a lifestyle that allows you to actually LIVE LIFE!!! I'm forever grateful for this opportunity because it opened up my eyes to the possibilities that I could have in my life & our team is making those possibilities become realities little by little each day !!🙌🎉✨
Hydration tip from my segment on @chch_morninglive 🎥📺 for National Hydration Day! I partnered with @watermelonboard to give you some tips to stay hydrated this summer 🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉
If you don't love drinking tasteless water, watermelon is 92% water, so it's perfect for a thirst-quenching snack 🍉😉
Freeze them into watermelon ice cubes, and use them like ice. Put in a tall glass, and top with some sparkling water 🍉💦

Good evening lovelies! So I discovered yesterday that strawberries 🍓and blueberries are on sale at @publix right now, 2 for $5! 💲I was STARVING when I came home from work today. It's not quite dinner time 😫so I wanted something quick that was going to sustain me until dinner. So I got creative! Whole wheat toast 🍞with @justins almond butter, @badiaspices chia seeds, drizzle of raw agave, chopped walnuts, and of course blueberries. A delicious and filling snack. Now bring on DINNER! What are your favorite healthy snacks and how do you get creative when there's not much at home?
