    Being Excuse Girl

    September 21, 2015


    Guys, this summer was a total shitshow whirlwind. Between moving, traveling, working/not sleeping, fun and adventures, I felt like I had zero time to do anything else, which meant a lot of my usual healthy habits fell by the wayside. I wasn’t eating well (i.e. tater tots + peanut M&Ms for dinner) or working out (I averaged 2-3 […]

    Hi, friends! Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely weekend. So, my weekend…. well, it was not awesome. I’m in the middle of a terrible flare that isn’t responding to drugs, so, needless to say, I’m not a happy camper right now. I talked to my doctor a few times over the weekend, and […]
