Tomorrow morning is my last hard track workout before my last track race of the year. And then BRING ON ALL THE 6+ MILE RUNS YAAAAYYYYYYYY

Try not to feel jealous about things, or people or places. It’s toxic. Just keep living. You will find your happiness.

This track season I came in first for my school every time we raced the 1500 or 800. My roommate beat me in the mile though a few weeks ago!

Cross country is a different story! I’m much better at short distance but this year I plan to kill it :D

Picture from the race that I broke my 1500m PR by 8 seconds :)

Happy Earth Day my fellow Earthlings. I hope you show a little love to our planet today and forevermore. Stop using water bottles. Remove toxicity from your life. Walk and bike more often. Consume less animal products. Buy locally. Do what you can for a better earth for our kids and their kids.

I JUST HAD CHIPOTLE TODAYYYYYYYYYY and ayyyy you’re not too shabby either anon ;)

I had a double wrap burrito with double brown rice, black beans, mild, and corn salsa and that’s it. I know it sounds really plain but it’s soooooooo good. And I recommend double wrapping it because you get two giant tortillas instead of one and all your shiz actually stays in the burrito.

Exciting News

So my school has an organization called SAAC which stands for Student Athlete Advisory Committee and I’ve been a representative for my cross country team this past year. Anyways, there are 5 officer positions and I decided to run for office (which is so unlike me) because I thought it would be a good opportunity to get involved and represent the small teams, you also get a scholarship for it. Today we had our speeches and I ended up winning my officer position!!! I am now the Social Media, Marketing, and Communications Coordinator for SAAC at my school :D

Just thought I’d share because sometimes putting yourself out there is really scary, but I promise good things can come out of it. I also made amends with one of my roommates today after hardly talking for the past 2 months, and pretty sure I aced my anatomy test this morning and I’m just feeling a lot better about life in general.

I’m here. I love you. I don’t care if you need to stay up crying all night long, I will stay with you. There’s nothing you can ever do to lose my love. I will protect you until you die, and after your death I will still protect you. I am stronger than Depression and I am braver than Loneliness and nothing will ever exhaust me.

The weather needs to be nicer (aka warmer) so I can wear my new clothes!!

In one post, you said you ate predominantly carbs and in another you advised to eat mainly fruits and vegetables... So which is it?

Fruits are predominantly carbs and vegetables are low in calories, therefore still high carb….

However I do eat loads if corn pasta and rice, also carbs ^_^

CARB UP or do whatever you want because everyone is entitled to eat the way they want to. :D

Do you wear makeup? You're skin is so clear! :) I'm trying to switch back to not wearing makeup, but my skin is really oily. Do you have any tips? And I was wondering if you use all vegan face care products like washes and cosmetics. :)

My skin is actually a disaster right now! Mainly because I have so much scarring on my chin/cheeks since I pick my skin :( And I still have a few active breakouts at all times mainly around my chin and cheek area. SO ANNOYING. I use lush products for my skin and make sure I purchase ones that are labeled vegan :) I think my biggest problem is I don’t drink enough water and something with my hormones is out of whack causing the chin acne.

My tips are to always wash your face before bed, drink loads of water, get enough sleep, don’t touch your face, eat well. You really have to get a lot of nutrients to have healthy, glowing skin since your skin receives them last. EAT ALL THE FRUITS AND VEGGIES ^_^

I'm really tired of being let down by boys because of my weight any tips on losing 25 pounds my June

My tip is to not let boys (or anyone for that matter) dictate how you feel about yourself. You’re beautiful just as you are and if someone doesn’t like you for your weight, then you should just eat them.

You are beautiful, and your presence in this world makes me happy :)

Thank you beautiful soul :) that made me smile! Your presence brings me joy as well.

Hi Jess! I've bought the most amazing maxi-dress and I'm looking forward to wear it, but it has quite a big cutout in the back so my bra would be visible - which I don't want to. So I'm contemplating to wear the dress without a bra. But that's kinda weird (in my head) and I don't know why... What do you think about going braless?

OMG I GO BRALESS ALL THE TIME. And I have small boobs so I can get away with it. I don’t think there is anything wrong with not wearing a bra. Sometimes I’ll put band aids over my nipples so they don’t get all cold and pointy hahaha or you could get a sticky bra somewhere and wear that if you would feel more comfortable so yore not thinking PEOPLE KNOW IM NOT WEARING A BRA. Honestly no one really cares either. Rock that dress girl ^_^
