Balance, balance, balance – it’s EVERYTHING.

But what do I mean by it?

Having a balanced lifestyle is pretty much like having your sh*t together.

It involves all facets of life, whether it’s physical, intellectual, occupational, social, or emotional.

You know – that one girl you love, but then also hate, because she effortlessly looks like she’s always having a grand ole time, no troubles in the horizon, head in the clouds kinda vibe?

Here’s a story for ya – kind of a travel horror story if you will.

DRAMATIC … Just in time for Halloween?

As you guys know, I’m studying abroad in Paris at the mo’ – which means that the fall break ( a.k.a. : the week of Halloween, which the U.S. doesn’t count as a no-school holiday, but Europe does) will involve lots of travel & wanderlust.

Seriously, I’ll be going from place to place & snapping ALL OF IT – come hang!

Thankfully, I don’t have Friday classes this semester – SO I had originally planned to make the most of my free time by going to London earlier than the rest of my girlfriends.

& I definitely wanted to have a few of my own Nancy Drew self-exploration moments, y’know?

The weirdo thing is, I NEVER had commitment issues when it came to working out.

I wasn’t lazy, unmotivated, whatever AT ALL.

What gives?

Like you would 100% have a higher chance of witnessing me snacking on some XXTRA Flamin’ Hot Cheetos & not fully committing to wellness. But ditching me-time with the treadmill & some weights?
