My name is Sam Bledsoe, and I am a student at the College of Charleston in South Carolina. I am a member of the equestrian team, do crossfit, and run to stay active. Downtown Charleston provides me with everything I need for my active lifestyle: a supportive gym with the best members and coaches out there (Pale Horse Crossfit – http://palehorsecrossfit.com/), great running paths with scenic views, and fellow fitness lovers who provide me with inspiration and motivation.
Food is one of my passions. I eat clean, making sure that my meals are composed of fresh, nutritious foods. I absolutely love (and I mean LOVE) fruit.
I enjoy the challenge of making new recipes and testing ideas in the kitchen. Due to having many food intolerances, I was forced outside my comfort zone to find alternatives to my favorite treats. I made it my goal to create healthier versions of my favorite foods that everyone can enjoy.
College has forced me to be creative when it comes to acquiring the nutrition I need to support my lifestyle while balancing practice, study hall, classes, and the gym. After a first semester full of ridiculous portions of (seemingly) healthy foods, I made a change for the new year. I then discovered my saving grace: meal prepping.
Prepping meals allows me to spend my Sunday afternoons going to Costco (my absolute favorite place) and cooking my food for the week. I make boxes for lunch and dinner that suit my macro plan and provide me with the energy I need to get through the day!
So stay tuned and follow me on my health journey filled with ponies, heavy weights, delicious recipes, and mouth-watering food pictures.
