  • Kiawah from my iPhone

    { 24 comments }

    I have far too much going on with the conference and beach/pool time to get my memory card out of my camera and edit photos but I want to give you a quick look at my trip so far from iPhone/Instagram! Arrival and welcome bag. The Sanctuary. The beach! Infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Lunch [...]

  • A Private Andy Grammer Concert

    { 2 comments }

    We were very lucky yogis at Y2 Yoga on Tuesday night...Andy Grammer played a private charity concert at the studio benefiting ALS. It's kind of a crazy story...Andy played at the studio three years ago when it first opened to all of about 10 people. The studio was lucky to have 5 people in a class [...]

    Hola! I'm en route to Kiawah Island in South Carolina where I will spend the next 5 days at a Young President's Organization conference. More details on that later but I'm so excited for the opportunity to attend this event. It's going to be a once in a lifetime experience! First, let me give a [...]

  • Monday + Pizza + Sullie

    { 20 comments }

    This photo sums up how Sullie and I feel about Monday. I woke up at 6 a.m. to another pounding headache on the right side of my head. I have had one every day since last week. I took it as a sign to skip my morning yoga class, took some ibuprofen and went back [...]

  • Sustainability

    I'm back in Charlotte but only for a few days before I take off on my next adventure. Details to come on that later this week but I should have lots of good stuff to share with you from my upcoming travels. The past few weeks have been really crazy and stressful on both personally [...]

  • Anatomy In Asheville

    { 12 comments }

    Guess where I am? The same place that I am 99% of the time when I go out of town and tell you to guess where. Asheville! I actually haven't been here since last December so I was due a trip. I'm actually here for David Keil's Beyond Basics Yoga Anatomy Workshop. It's a three-day workshop that [...]

  • Friday Stuff: Google Reader Alternative, Read This, Music, Summer Love

    { 13 comments }

    Happy Friday everyone. I've got nadda to show you on the food/life front although I assure you that you aren't missing anything. My life has been extremely photo unworthy over the past couple of days. I'm just doing the best I can to even get through this week right now. However, I do have several [...]

  • 20 Minutes of 5 Minute AMRAPs {Workout Post}

    { 24 comments }

    Hey there. I don't have much to report from today other than... 1) My AC unit is on it's way out but all hope is not yet lost so for now we wait. Best case scenario I pay $400 for a motor in several months...worst case scenario I replace the whole thing but we're not [...]

  • Starting Off With A Bang

    { 37 comments }

    First, thanks for all of the happy birthday wishes. It was a happy weekend. But I have to say 30 isn't off to the greatest start! I got my first migraine headache on Saturday night and it completely freaked me out. I couldn't sleep because my head hurt so bad so I got up at [...]

  • Metro CrossFit Throwdown…One Successful Year

    { 8 comments }

    Metro CrossFit celebrated its one year anniversary on Saturday and I planned a throwdown to celebrate! Typically, throwdowns are a little more chill than official CrossFit competitions. The idea is that you invite athletes from your gym and other CrossFit gyms in the community to come together and workout. The past few weeks of my [...]

  • Surprised!

    { 36 comments }

    I have been totally spoiled over the last week. My friends have truly made my 30th birthday so special...I am still a little in shock over all of it! I thought that last Sunday's pool party was wonderful and I never expected or dreamed that anything else was planned. My Friday turned out to be [...]

  • Getting Through A Crazy Week

    { 18 comments }

    My week has been consumed by Metro CrossFit. First, some of our coaches were out on vacation so I covered double the amount of classes that I usually do. And second, I'm in final crazy planning mode for our first anniversary throwdown and celebration on Saturday. I can't believe it's been a year since we [...]

  • Crossing It Off The Wish List

    { 13 comments }

    When people ask me if I'm into photography I explain to them that it's not a "passion" exactly but I take pictures every single day. So by default of doing it so much and wanting my photographs to look nice, I have kind of gotten into it. I'm not motivated to go out and take [...]

  • 30th Celebration Comes Early

    { 23 comments }

    The 30th birthday festivities started a little early on Sunday with an accidental surprise party. My friends planned an early birthday pool party for me since my birthday falls on Father's Day...and they forgot to tell me about it! I was teaching yoga on Sunday morning and after class one of my friends said, "I [...]

  • Stop saying I don’t know.

    { 34 comments }

    Weekend in photos... I had to work on Saturday morning but it was pretty awesome. 1) Metro CrossFit was rocking and we had a great group for our morning classes with lots of new faces. 2) These sweet puppies were there overseeing the WOD! No really, every time people ran out of the doors to [...]

  • WOD + Eats + New Yoga Playlist

    { 11 comments }

    Workouts this week have been good. Lots of yoga, lots of strength and little running. I'm just really not feeling the running right now. But I did have to get some running in on Wednesday in honor of National Run Day. I did this WOD but substituted a 500 meter run for the rowing. This [...]

  • Sharing Day: Soup, Cauliflower, Yoga Pride, Pam’s Wise Words

    { 18 comments }

    Sharing a little of this, little of that today...everything from smoothies to soup to yoga (always yoga) to The Office. I had my first non-smoothie breakfast in 6 days today.  Breakfast after coaching 6 and 7 a.m. CrossFit was a Chobani Pineapple topped with bananas, blueberries, Bare Naked Fruit & Nut Granola and Earth Balance [...]

  • On Stopping The Storytelling

    { 23 comments }

    Last Sunday I talked to my yoga class about storytelling. Not the kind of sweet stories you tell children but the stories you make up in your head that cause you fear, anxiety, questioning and doubt. This is something I have struggled with for a long time. I completely freak myself out about things and [...]

  • Monday + 20-15-10 Workout

    { 25 comments }

    Hello and happy end to Monday. I had a great day but I am so happy to be home and cooking dinner. I'm about to watch last night's Game of Thrones and from what I've seen on Facebook and heard around the gym today...I'm in for a shocker! Can't wait!!! Just a few things to [...]

  • A Fashion Post (Gasp) + Sushi + Lazy Sunday

    { 29 comments }

    Part two of my weekend included a shopping trip, sushi and normal Sunday stuff. On Saturday afternoon I made a trip to Nordstrom Rack in search of white jeans (my favorite pair had an unfortunate encounter with red wine at a party that left them beyond saving :cry:). While I didn't find any white jeans [...]

  • Weekend: Erin McDermott + Cheese & Wine + Market + Cute Sullie

    { 23 comments }

    I feel like I'm finally starting to recover from last week. It was a short one but so jam-packed. I didn't get home from work until 7 on Friday night so I took Sullie out for an easy run so we could enjoy some fresh air after being cooped up in the gym all day. [...]
