A few months ago, I had a pretty enlightening conversation with my therapist. Yes, I see a therapist. This is me stating it like a celebrity pregnancy announcement. A common theme she and I talk about is how I can continue to seek balance in my life. Balance was something I struggled with back when… Continue reading Advice from my Therapist
As a soon-to-be Registered Dietitian, I often have people ask me about certain diets or eating patterns that they have thought about trying. Many times the inspiration has come from social media, a friend or coworker, or a celebrity, because clearly if Gwyneth Paltrow juice cleanses, it must be good for you!

While I did have some amazing days throughout (like my sister’s wedding, where I danced my booty off), I had some days where I reallllly struggled to cope with everything I had going on.

I know you’re dying to know everyone’s answers, so I’ll fill you in: Kailee:… Continue reading Magnesi-YUM-
I'm setting food and exercise intentions to break myself out of a funk, because it's time to cut the B.S.

Intermittent fasting will banish bloating forever. The list goes on and on. I’ve made it super clear to anyone who… Continue reading Flex(itarian) Zone
I went to a Bachelorette party last weekend where I got to see a lot of my friends from high school. Not only was it great to reconnect with them all, but it was also my first time out as a 21-year-old in the city. I’m the baby of our friend group, so finally feeling… Continue reading Bottom’s Up
