valbui I took my boyfriend on a spontaneous {surprise} back seat date ft. a long car ride to find the perfect spot & a breathtaking sunset. On the menu was some cold pesto pasta salad with basil, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes & pesto of course, to satisfy the sweet tooth were homemade cookies (thanks roomie) & chocolate covered strawberries! Yum. Also, we played Across the Universe on my laptop. Definitely a perfect evening. I'm happy & über blessed with this boy of mine, thank you for being y o u 5d

valbui •Let me walk upon the waters wherever You would call me, take me deeper than my feet could ever wander..& my faith will be made stronger, In the presence of my Savior•
This song will always be the one that reminds me of when i accepted God into my life & it was a beautiful thing. Anyway, these beautiful girls have been or will be going over seas or out of state, I can't begin to describe how happy I am that God is using them to encourage & love on people, it's such a blessing..for that, ya'll are my women crushes. Missing my roomies & praying oh, so much for everyone!

valbui I was very stealthy at taking this photo after my workout 😛 lol & that face makes me laugh.
last night, in the midst of my before bed Pinterest pinning, I came across this quote/saying:
"I will NOT starve for this, but i will work hard for this. it may take longer doing it the healthy & right way. But it will last longer this way. It will be better. & I will be happy. Happy & beautiful."
It's crazy to think about health habits, how some can allow flexibility & how others are are very restrictive. I used to be severely restrictive of what I ate, IF AT ALL, now, with a normal BMI, muscle & FAT, & pursuing a degree in nutrition..I can allow some flexibility, homegirl really likes sweets and PB (which is my vice)
also, it's crazy to think about where I was years ago in regards to health.
today, I made the decision to restart @kayla_itsines BBG from week one & keep myself & a friend accountable for it, it's so exciting! With that being said, here's another Instagram to be tuned in @valbui_bbg

valbui my apocrine glands are being worked extra hard on this hot 95° evening..that means a type of sweat gland, also meaning my body is regulating the internal temperature of my body with a negative feedback mechanism used during homeostasis..also: you can see my dermis skin layer pretty clearly lol, I have my first anatomy & physiology exam tomorrow & typed this caption without looking at notes because instead, I'm on my floor enjoying my green smoothie with @purely_elizabeth granola, my favorite & VERY addicting. Happy Monday! 2mon

valbui «my selfie from a good Friday for a great Sunday»
One thing many may know about me is my deep admiration for people, their passions, stories, well being etc. I am able to express that through genuine kindness, empathy, helpfulness & selflessness. Today was my first time in a while to work a full shift without being sent home a couple hours early, i was able to interact with people for several minutes - one thing I absolutely love about that is the fact that people are SO different & they all have something different to say, they all have places to be or places to go, things to do but at that moment they're sharing bits & pieces of their day with ME! We share common interests in food (mainly), we share stories or little experiences & i am able to hear them out for the little time we share, it's quite nice, especially since the majority of interactions are well reciprocated. I am also able to 'make someone's day' by a smile or a simple 'how are you' & that is GOLD & makes me happy. Yay!

valbui //Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, & the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. & how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? “Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, & tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, & your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.// {Luke12:22-31} I struggle with worry & the fact that sometimes I don't have control, constant reminders like scripture cease that habit & for that, I feel at peace. 2mon
