Happy Friday, y’all! I’m really excited about today’s post because I’m about to get super real with you. I keep things pretty open here on the blog and on my social medias as well, but most of the time what you see are the happy moments, the “yearbook” moments, and the moments where I’m at my best. It’s just sadly the way social media works.
It’s easy to take a look at my Instagram and think I have my life together, every single one of my workouts is high-quality, and my diet is always on point.
Fun fact: sometimes it’s not.

I surely can’t be the only one who is starving by the time 3:00 pm rolls around. After a long day of class, studying, and trying to cross off everything on my to-do list, I’m pretty hungry. Hunger tends to take over my brain and I just want whatever source of carbs I can find. It’s easy to see why I want to stuff my face with chips, animal crackers, or a candy bar because carbs are a quick energy source. But, I know that if I down a candy bar or some animal crackers, I’m going to be hungry again in about 30 minutes.
I refuse to keep any unhealthy food items in my room 99% of time because I have zero self-control around junk food. So, if it’s not here, I can’t eat it. When I’m looking for snack items, I’m focusing on macronutrient content – fats, carbs, and protein. Snacking on food higher in protein and fat keeps me fuller for longer and reduces my urges to snack for hours at a time.
