I’ve heard so often that I spend too much time on Social Media. Although it may be true, I spend time online to interact with people that have become great friends and confidents. People who help me stay positive in hard situations. People who make my day brighter by sharing their own stories. People who became part of my close circle, even if we live thousands of miles apart. Social media receives a bad reputation, thanks to people like Danielle Bregoli or the Kardashians; people think that social media is only there to brag about your physique or our wonderful life. For me, it’s much much more than that.

Hi, my name is Sarah, and I am addicted to carbohydrates. I don’t care what form or shape they come in, I love them all equally. Being a carb-lover, imagine my reaction when I had to go on a low carb diet last October. I thought it would be impossible for me to sustain a low carb diet, mostly because I love carbs so much. I didn’t even think about the benefits it will bring to my body, I just thought – no. Regardless of my feelings towards the approach, I trust my coach’s knowledge in his craft and my body, therefore I went forward and did it. I tried the low carb diet. Here’s what happened.

Binge eating is the cause of many athletes’ weight gain after competing or after being in a calorie deficit. Normal individuals can also be victims to binge eating, restricting their calorie intake during the week to finally cave and binge on the weekend. This cycle can mess with one’s metabolism and hormones, turning one’s body into a fat gaining machine. This article will discuss how I overcame my binge eating and what recovery entails.

See You Later 2016 | Reflections

bye 2016, new year resolutions, new year reflections
I can’t believe we’re already a few days away from 2017. I feel like just yesterday, we were all excited to enter 2016. I think these past twelve months have been a roller coaster for most people (or at least, that’s what the memes say). Personally, 2016 was the year that pushed me out of my comfort zone. I have so many things to be thankful for, good and bad, I don’t even know where to begin. The following reflections are my own. Thank you for allowing me to lay out my raw thoughts on here. They may not make sense at times. But here they are.

You all know about my hate/love relationship with crossfit. If you don’t, follow me on Instagram to hear me complain/praise the wonderful sport, every Saturday. Unfortunately, I can’t fit more crossfit WODs into my schedule, for now, so I’m limited to doing one crossfit workout per week. I used to do it on Saturday afternoons, where I crafted my own little torture. Eventually, I got tired of being tired, alone, so I joined the morning classes on Saturday. It definitely helps me push myself harder, since there are a lot of people around and my pride doesn’t let me stop.

It’s 11:22PM on a Friday night. I’m sitting in bed, listening to love songs, thinking about everything that happened this week. Thinking about what I learned, what I heard, what I said, and what I did. Wondering if I had a productive week, or if I have to work a little harder this weekend, to catch up on my to-do list. Just like every night I stay up past 11:00PM, my mind starts to wander. One thing in particular struck this week, as people around me encouraged settling. Settling in love. Settling at work. Settling in life.

Here I am, soaking in my bubbling bath. Eyes closed, letting the smell of Bath, Body Works’ vanilla scented candle and Beyonce’s song, “Halo”, take me on a journey. Relaxing my muscles in what seemed like a bucket of Epsom Salt, and hydrating my skin with Lush’s exciting bath bombs. Here I am, in bath heaven. Alone with my thoughts and Beyonce’s divine voice, my brain has a realization: what if I have commitment issues?

Behind the Pretty Smile: Who Is Sarah Anton?

I’m honestly not sure how to start this post. When I first opened the blank page, I had a vision in mind for this article, but now I’m a bit lost for words (rare, I know). I guess I’ll just get started. If it doesn’t make sense, I apologize. I try my best, but my ramblings don’t always make sense. 

When I first started working out, I never thought fitness would be such a big part of my life. My goal was to lose weight and that’s it. I always liked to do things big, so I started documenting my journey and sharing my opinions on health + fitness (even though they weren’t always right back then) to my friends and family. Quickly, the gym became my second home and I became my number one priority.

Faith & Questions

There’s been a lot of changes in 2016 so far, from changing businesses to recovering from my binge eating, and much more. I’m not one to really believe in the New Year thing, but I really feel like this time, that small change in number at the top of our agenda really made a difference. Hey! Maybe it’s just me trying to believe in yet another thing, but maybe there really is a science to the New Year. Nevertheless, so far, all changes have been positive, and that’s what I’m most grateful for.

Hello my darlings! Sorry for not posting as often on the blog lately, the New Year has been extremely hectic for me… to think that we’re only a week into it. It’s going to be an amazing year, that’s for sure! Since I’ve been MIA, here’s what’s been happening in my life so far: 

As many of you know, I started giving spinning and circuit training classes at World Gym Rosemere in September of 2015. After a lot of reflection, negotiation, and a little more reflection, I decided to start training people. One-on-one. The decision to join the World Gym trainers wasn’t much of a head scratcher, as I’ve been a member of the Rosemere facility for over five years (from the first year they opened, actually). I knew the machines, I loved the people, and I was ready to change people’s lives in my community. So, as of December 28th, 2015, I’m a World Gym Personal Trainer!
