Bess Be Fit

A former collegiate athlete's journey of trying to stay and get as fit as possible in life after soccer!


Comfy clothes.

Shockingly enough, my ginormous bowl of cereal didn’t keep me full the rest of the night.  So I made some crackers with blue cheese and even put some apple butter on some of them.

Yes that is a lot of crackers and a lot of blue cheese.  What?! I was hungry 🙂

Had simple coffee and cereal this morning…

Packed a snack of greek yogurt, some pb, and a little Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal…and a banana to also go on top!

And I am hesitant to show you What I Wore today because I think I look like a total bum (maybe I look like a bum everyday?)…but hey, at least I’m a comfortable bum, right?

In case you haven’t noticed I barely put any make up on to go to work and I try to be as comfortable as possible.  Especially because my legs are moderately sore from the run yesterday!  Sitting at a desk is bad enough, might as well be comfy!  That was pretty much my rationale all through college, too…which is why I wore Wake Forest Athletics stuff pretty much everyday. Yeah, I was that girl.

Do you have a dress code at your office/school/wherever you spend your day? We don’t have a strict dress code policy, so long as you aren’t wearing a slinky nightgown type dress you’re probably okay (that is actually the example they gave us back at new employee orientation).  I also haven’t been seeing as many patients lately and would dress a bit more appropriately back when I was seeing lots of them everyday.  Now I mostly sit at my desk so whatevs!

Do you like blue cheese?  What is your favorite easy-to-put-together snack? I love cheese and crackers…especially with some wine, too 🙂


Getting Warmer

Looked up the weather on today and was incredibly excited to see that the high today is going to be 68°.  Tomorrow it is going to be 75°!

It just felt like springtime and summertime are right around the corner the way the sun was shining through the kitchen window.  This makes me very excited because I cannot wait to go to the beach and be tan and wear cute warm weather clothes!

For breakfast I had a gigantic slice of banana bread.  It is “healthy” banana bread in case you are wondering.  I’ll try to find the recipe if any of you are interested….my mom makes it 🙂

I packed some snacks for later:

apple, blood orange, all-natural applesauce, carrots

I’m definitely going to have to get some good protein in for lunch since I’m eating pretty much all carbs so far!

This is What I Wore to work on this beautiful Thursday…since its warm out I felt it was fashionably acceptable to wear my white pants…and even still, “winter whites” were a trend this season, so I think its okay either way 😉

Black Tank Top: Nordstrom

Purple Scarf: Target

Grey Jacket: Forever 21

Black Patent Leather Flats:  Steve Madden

And now here is some summer time dreaming pictures that I am going to stare at to fantasize about warmer weather and sunshine and tanned skin 🙂

the walkway to the most beautiful beach ever 🙂

Ahhh I can’t wait.  Dreaming of the NC beach should definitely keep me in a good mood 🙂

Even in the middle of a thunderstorm its gorgeous:


Take me there now!

Going to go daydream now…I mean, work. 🙂

Happy Thursday!

Question:  Where is your favorite place to vacation? I always have and always will LOVE North Carolina beaches.  I have been to many other beaches before but I just love the quiet and private beaches you get in NC.  Not to mention beautiful!  If you have never been to a beach in NC come visit me.
