Books + Reading

  • 2015 Summer Reading List


    We are in the height of vacation season with the arrival of July and the upcoming holiday. I don't know about you but I get the itch to read during the summer. Longer days, beach trips and pool time make me want to kick my feet up with a book in my hand. And yes, [...]

  • Zoey is Five Months Old + Things You Must Read


    Happy Friday! After a busy morning, I wrapped up my training and teaching for the week at 1 p.m. and have a rare Friday afternoon off. I usually have clients on Friday evenings. Yay. The biggest news of the day is that this little nugget is five months old! (Her nickname is "The Chicken Nugget.") [...]

  • All About My Book + How To Pre-Order Ultimate Plank Fitness

My book, Ultimate Plank Fitness: 101 Plank Exercises for a Strong Core, Killer Abs - And a Killer Body, will release on March 15, 2015! Today I'm giving you a sneak peek into my [...]

  • The Journey Home + Weekly Workouts


    Hi! I am currently camped out in the Punta Cana airport with two hours left to go before my flight departs. They like to get you here reaaallllyyy early which can be good when the airport is a zoo but today it was smooth sailing. This is the first time I've ever had a really smooth airport [...]

  • What I’m Reading + Weekly Workouts


    Good morning! Happy Monday! I am currently stalking the Punta Cana weather forecast (which can be pretty crazy-making because it changes every day). What I do know is that it will be in the 80s...and rain or no rain that is better than the 39 and cloudy I'm looking at outside of my window right [...]

  • Friday I’m In Love…


    This is the happiest kind of Friday of them all...a long weekend Friday! Although I'm not traveling anywhere, I'm hoping to make the above photo a reality. My grand plans for the weekend include sleeping, pool time with friends, movies and just hanging out at home. Sounds like the perfect stay-cation to me! Here are [...]

  • Trip Photos + Golden Love + What I’m Reading (GONE GIRL!!!)


    I arrived home yesterday sun-kissed, rested and already a little homesick. I'm so thankful for the long weekend I spent with my parents and I'm already planning a return trip to stay longer this summer. I really want to STOP these six month spans between seeing each other. Family is too important. I really love the [...]

  • A Very Social Weekend (I Put on Real Clothes 4 Days in a Row!)


    I hope your Monday is off to a great start! I had a yoga private this morning, a coffee meeting and then I shopped and cooked meals for my client. I haven't done a weekend recap in a while because my weekends haven't been much to write about but I thought that putting on real [...]

  • For Your Entertainment: Zombies, Books, Movies & More


    Thanks for all of the thoughtful discussion yesterday's strength training post. Keep those questions coming and again, please let me know if there are any specific fitness topics you'd like me to address in these "weekly workout" posts. I'm going to take a little more of a lighthearted approach with today's post and share with [...]

  • This Week’s Eats + Off to Mexico!


    Happy Friday! This time tomorrow afternoon I'll be practicing yoga on an open air pier in Mexico with this view... This trip crept up so fast! I can't believe that I'll be spending the next week in Mexico on a yoga retreat with many of my close friends and students from Y2 Yoga. We had [...]

  • 2013 Spring Reading List


    Thank you so much for all of your comments with book suggestions on my Trip Prep post. I found myself with eight books in my cart at Amazon and I could have kept going. I ended up making myself narrow it down to the following four titles. From top to bottom: Dancing on Broken Glass, [...]

  • Trip Prep – Swimwear, Dresses, Accessories & More


    Happy Monday! This time next week I will be in the Caribbean. I kind of can't believe it. I have a crazy week to power through to get there but it will all be worth it when I'm planted on the beach with a drink and book in hand. I have had several requests recently [...]

  • Vacation = White Sand, Rainbows And Cake


    Vacation day one was a success. I didn't work out, finished a book in 24 hours, napped on the beach, embraced my natural curls and went out for dinner with crazy hair and ate cake. I thought maybe I would go on a run yesterday morning but then my dad and I went to the [...]

  • Summer Reading List


    I have a little confession: sometimes I struggle with actually getting around to writing posts that I have promised you guys. It’s not that I don’t want to write them – it’s just that cannot seem to find the time! You were a huge help suggesting books before our trip to Jamaica (which by the [...]
