About Me

Hi! My name is Constance, Connie for short, and I'm so excited to share my tips, tricks, and recipes on living an active life style fueled by whole foods. I am certified Group Fitness Instructor and a recent grad from DePaul University in Chicago, IL with a Bachelor's of Science in Health Science. I am now a Masters student at California State University Los Angeles studying Nutritional Science in addition to the Coordinated Dietetic Program. I am passionate about real food and hope to show you that eating well and being good to our bodies doesn't come with a high price or time tag and anyone can make small steps to a healthier life style!

  • Currently craving: "The Cookie" from @metmarket - gooey center and crispy outside with walnuts and chocolate chips 😫 come to meeee!
  • Smiling because the 1st draft of my thesis is done, @targetstyle has this top for 16 bucks , and I have rosé in my hand 🙌🏻 Happy Friday!
  • Let me just tell you about this THICK chinnamon swirl French toast for a second. @milkandeggscom is selling this amazing loaf that all you all to do it dunk in a little @organicvalley milk + 1 egg + cinnamon and boom with syrup and @kerrygoldusa buttah 🙌🏻 I always tell people who ask about nutrition to try and get the trifecta going whenever possible and here is a great example- protein + carb + fat = egg + bread + buttah and boom a little balance to get your morning started! 
off to see my favorite baby face this morning and I'm SO excited!
  • Ravioli for dinner last night and tonight! Trader Joe's has some pretty awesome options- my personal fave are the butternut squash and the goat cheese + sun-dried tomato! My dad also makes a doctored up turkey pasta sauce to top with Parmesan and a big side salad 👏🏻 had an awesome Thursday spent with my Oma and Y friends + lesson planning. Can't complain!
  • Current lunch situation with Oma at @coraltreecafe 👏🏻 getting our greens in + a giant chicken sandwich with oodles of oozy cheese 😍 Happy Thursday to you!
  • Got 2 fun packages in the mail today! Getting ready with some camp director appropriate/figure flattering swimwear from @cupshe and sun protection with @beautycounter sunscreen that I'm obsessed with! I've been wearing these @stevemadden sandals from @stitchfix a ton this summer and I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised with how this suit fits! I'll show you at camp 👏🏻 click the link in my bio to get your fix!
  • Can't remember the last time I had a muffin! Met @heatherruth for a breakfast date before she hops back on a plane to Seattle and we ordered a side of eggs each, lots of coffee , and a banana nut muffin for me + zucchini bread + buttah for her! Muffins back in the day used to be a hard no for me because I lost control over them and would go ham on like 3 when in reality when I checked in with myself and balanced with a little protein I only needed 1 muffin and I'm so content and SATISFIED. Calling that a win! Happy 🐪 day friends!
  • Snack situation today 👌🏼 1 slice of whole wheat + losta  @traderjoes PB + regular strawberry jelly + a @lacroixwater ! Clocked 3 hours of thesis work this morning and I'm off to run errands before lots of YMCA camp craziness tonight.
