    Happy Sunday. After two days of Hurricane Matthew's rain and wind, I woke up to the most beautiful blue skies and crisp temperatures. As soon as I finish this post, I'm going to take my girls for a long walk to soak up the sunshine. I just put together our meal plan for the week. [...]

  • Weekly Meal Plan + Last Week’s Workouts + When to Skip a Run

    { 10 comments }

    Happy Sunday! I'm currently skipping my long run (the first one of half marathon training!) and writing this post instead. I planned to meet a friend for the run this morning but I had to cancel on her because I woke up with some soreness from yesterday's 5K race at the spot where my achilles [...]

  • A Change of Run Scenery + This Week’s Meal Plan + Last Week’s Workouts

    { 16 comments }

    I have to tell you again how happy I am to be back on the meal planning bandwagon. I've been visiting the farmers market on Saturdays and buying whatever looks good and then menu planning around the things that I've purchased. I'm having so much fun spending an hour or so on Sunday mornings browsing Pinterest, magazines [...]

  • Why I’m Not CrossFitting Now + Workouts + Meal Plan

    { 13 comments }

    Hope you guys are having a wonderful weekend! This morning I received a question from a reader who noticed that I'm not CrossFitting anymore and she asked if there was a reason why. (After I RX'd Fran for the first time) Let's chat about that for a second. I started CrossFitting back in 2012 when [...]

    { 8 comments }

    I hope y'all are enjoying a relaxing Sunday. I arrived at Sunset Beach around 8 p.m. last night and so far our trip is off to a great start. I'm not going to share a meal plan for the week since I'm going to be at the beach until Wednesday but I didn't want to [...]

  • This Week’s Meal Plan + Last Week’s Workouts

    { 9 comments }

    Hey guys! A quick check in to share the meal plan for the week and last week's workouts. It was so awesome last week to plan ahead of time and share it with you guys. It really kept me accountable and I only made one grocery trip the whole week. I had a crazy afternoon today [...]

    Hey there. Hope it's been a good weekend. I'll have the weekend recap for you tomorrow but I got it together enough today to put together a meal plan for the week and do all the shopping. I'm excited about 0ur week of meals so I wanted to share the plan with you along with [...]

  • Rest/Workout Balance + Weekly Workout Recap

    { 18 comments }

    It's been a month or so since I've done a weekly workout recap. I took a short hiatus from posting them weekly and I'm not sure if I'll go back to day-by-day weekly recaps or maybe do a "recent workouts" type post occasionally like I do with recent eats. As you guys know, my focus for the [...]

  • Weekend At The Beach + An Easy Week of Workouts

    { 1 comment }

    Hi there. I hope it was a great weekend. I have been soaking up time with my family (and sleep...lots of sleep). I got to take a short mandated weekend break from the blog because my tech guru (who is an angel sent from heaven) has spent the last few days moving my site to a [...]

  • TT Weekend + Last Week’s Workouts

    { 6 comments }

    Good morning. I hope that your Monday is the start to a wonderful week ahead! I was thrilled not to have any early clients after being in yoga teacher training all weekend. It's nice to start the week at a relaxed pace with breakfast, coffee and computer time instead of hitting the ground running at [...]

  • This Week’s Menu Plan + Last Week’s Workouts

    { 9 comments }

    Happy Sunday! Many of you have mentioned that you'd like to see more menu/meal plans so I decided to sit down this afternoon and actually plan out my week of meals to share with you. Sunday: dinner out with friends Monday: Mexican Quinoa Stuffed Peppers (recipe will be posted soon!) with some sort of side salad [...]

  • Weekend + Workouts

    { 42 comments }

    I'm a day late in getting the workout recap to you. I sat down last night to write it and was going to do a high level overview on the Spring Equinox but then inspiration took over and it became its own post. I love it when that happens. :) Friday was spent in the [...]

  • Sunday Morning Coffee Chat + Weekly Workouts

    { 47 comments }

    Weekend mornings are my favorite. After many years of teaching early every Saturday and Sunday morning, it's been such a treat to have them back after making some adjustments to my schedule about a year ago. Saturday mornings tend to be a little more productive. I love cleaning the house, hitting the farmers market and getting [...]

  • Weekly Workouts + Dona Jo Fitwear Giveaway

    { 10 comments }

    Good morning! We are so enjoying our yoga retreat in the Dominican Republic. The group from our studio is leaving today but we are staying for a few extra days to soak up a little more sun and relaxation and some one-on-one time. Given that we practice twice a day on these retreats, I bring [...]

  • The Weekend and Weekly Workouts

    { 19 comments }

    My heart was warmed by your thoughtful and supportive comments on what empowering women means to you. Thank you for that. If you missed the post, please check it out and remember that the giveaway is open until Monday at midnight. I'm going to combine my weekend and workout posts tonight because I'm not sure [...]

  • 2016 Valentine’s Day Partner Workout + My Weekly Workouts

    { 1 comment }

    Happy Valentine's Day! Last year I shared a Valentine's Day partner workout and I thought it would be fun to put together another one for you this year. I love this partner workout because most of the exercises are interactive and/or hands on. Sweating together is a great way for couples to connect while doing [...]

  • Super Bowl Super Set Workout + Weekly Workouts

    { 15 comments }

    Happy Super Bowl Sunday! I am SUPER PUMPED to cheer on the Panthers tonight. I decided to channel some of my enthusiasm into creating a killer "Super Bowl Super Set Workout" for you guys! Read all about super sets and why I love them in this post. I organized the workout into four super sets [...]

  • Weekly Workouts: I’m Working with a Personal Trainer!

    { 22 comments }

    This was the happiest week! I started working with my own personal trainer! I know some of you might be thinking, "wait what?" but let me explain. For the past couple of years I have been saying that I need a trainer and considered hiring someone to work with or program for me. It's not that [...]

  • Weekly Workouts + Travel Yoga (And Love for Balance 30-A!)

    { 19 comments }

    My default travel workout is to throw on a pair of running shoes and hit the road. It's easy, free and a great change of scenery. That said, it can be really fun to try out new classes and gyms if time allows and options are available. Usually when I'm visiting my parents I stick to [...]

  • Weekly Workouts + Lots of Strength + A Killer Pulling Workout

    { 12 comments }

    Happy Sunday morning! It's currently snowing in Charlotte. Nothing that's sticking, just big wet flakes that melt the second they hit the ground but it makes for a pretty and cozy morning with a cup of coffee (and some chia pudding!). I'm gearing up for a marathon day of teaching...four classes total today including yoga, [...]

  • Weekly Workouts: Treadmill Time + “Add 5 Reps Workout”

    { 14 comments }

    We have officially reached the time of year where I embrace the treadmill. Don't get me wrong, I am NOT complaining about temperatures ranging from the 20s-40s when that's balmy for many of you (and I am fondly remembering all those 70 degree runs I had in November and December). What I do find is [...]

  • Weekly Workouts: End of the 62 Day Challenge + Moving for Energy

    { 11 comments }

    I was feeling the "holiday hangover" something fierce last week. I found myself feeling pretty low on energy, taking more naps than normal and sleeping later than usual. I blame it on the cumulative effects of running around, stress, indulgent foods, parties and more drinking than normal. The weather we've had for the last few [...]

  • Holiday Week Workouts + Energy For One More (Giveaway!)

    { 137 comments }

    Hi! How was everyone's Christmas? (for those of you celebrating) I will be posting my recap of Christmas weekend on Monday morning but I thought it was time to check in after taking a little blog break since last Wednesday so I've got the weekly workout recap along with a giveaway. As I announced back [...]

  • Holiday Highs and Lows + Weekly Workouts

    { 17 comments }

    Hi! I don't know about you guys but I'm feeling the holiday hustle in full force. The ratio of "what I hope to achieve and do" versus "what actually happens" is pretty comical right now but I'm just taking it one day at a time. I thought for today's weekly workouts post that I would [...]

  • Weekly Workouts + December Favorites Playlist

    { 7 comments }

    Happy Sunday! I didn't exactly have the most relaxing start to the day. Zoey ate about 15 miniature red velvet cupcakes off the counter on Friday morning (wrapper and all) so her tummy is still paying the price for those two minutes of glory. We were in the shower together at 8 a.m. cleaning up [...]

  • Weekly Workouts: Dream Big & Then Go After It!

    { 16 comments }

    Hello. (It's me.) I typed "Hello," looked at it and the song immediately popped in my head. Are we forever ruined on the word hello? Ha. I didn't mean to disappear for 3 days but my Friday and weekend got busy and I know you guys are busy on the weekend too so I figured [...]

  • Ambassador Announcement + Weekly Workouts + A Farewell

    { 16 comments }

    Does anyone else feel a little out of sorts right now? I feel like it's been one big weekend for the last 5 days. We kept calling the days we were gone for Thanksgiving "the weekend" and then got back and it actually was the weekend. One of the biggest perks about this 5 day [...]

  • Weekly Workouts: A Yoga Challenge & Current Focus

    { 14 comments }

    I loved my week of workouts this week! I am participating our annual yoga challenge at the studio so it's been pushing me to get to my mat more and the difference it's making in my body is wonderful. I'm feeling really open and really good. The challenge is 62 practices in 62 days or [...]

  • Weekly Workouts Away: Lots of Running + BodyPump

    { 12 comments }

    I am home in Charlotte after spending the last week in Georgia. I think this was the longest I've been away from Charlotte in almost two years. While I appreciated every second of time being with my family, it was so wonderful to see my girls and get a big hug from my fiance after [...]

  • Dumbbell & TRX Superset Total Body Workout + Weekly Workouts

    { 14 comments }

    I'm excited to have a new total body workout workout to share with you that combines two of my favorite training tools...supersets and the TRX! My clients love the TRX and I also enjoy incorporating it into my own workouts. Last week I put together a total body superset workout (read about supersets and why [...]

  • Weekly Workouts: Longest Run of Half Training & Hitting 24 Miles for the Week!

    { 18 comments }

    I'm on a little bit of a high from my runs this week. I hit my highest mileage week of training coming in at 24 miles in just 3 runs. Each run felt so good and strong. There was the rainy 3-miler turned 6-miler on Tuesday. Don't you love those runs where you set out [...]

  • Weekly Workouts: Loving the Long Run

    { 19 comments }

    This training cycle I have found that my long runs are my favorite of the week. Since reworking my schedule so that I don't teach early on Saturday or Sunday, I feel like I have all the time in the world to sleep in, have some coffee, get my run in and relax. I usually [...]

  • Weekly Workouts: Halfway Through Half Marathon Training

    { 13 comments }

    Happy Sunday! I hope you guys are having a great weekend. I slept in and ate donuts so it's been a pretty magical morning over here. More on that when I post the weekend recap tomorrow. I'm a little over halfway done with my "informal" Thunder Road Half Marathon training. The race is November 14. [...]

  • Weekly Workouts: Double Digit Long Run!

    { 13 comments }

    Holy cow...I haven't had a "post long run feeling" like this in a long time! This week of workouts started out pretty calm and ended up kind of intense. I planned on doing my long run on Saturday but it rained ALL.DAY.LONG. Unless I wanted to run in 60 degrees with steady rain, I needed [...]

  • 25 Minute Clock Workout + Weekly Workouts

    { 9 comments }

    Super quick check in tonight. My weekend has been a sea of boxes, U-Haul Trucks and eating out. The good news? I survived moving. Here are my workouts for the last week. More on the move coming soon in the weekend recap! For now it's a miracle that I got this post up. :P Monday [...]

  • First Half Marathon Training Long Run + Weekly Workouts

    { 14 comments }

  • My Experience at Bar Method Charlotte + Weekly Workouts

    { 13 comments }

    Good morning! There's just nothing like waking up naturally at 7:30 on a sunny Sunday morning, making coffee and relaxing with nowhere to be. Tomorrow's 4:55 a.m. alarm will not be quite as kind! This week's workout recap is going to focus on something you never see around here...Bar Method! Last Tuesday evening I was [...]

  • Back to Strength Focus + Weekly Workouts

    { 25 comments }

    Happiest of Sundays to everyone! Hope you're having a lovely Labor Day Weekend! Sullie and I hopped in the car and headed down to Georgia to hang out with my grandmother for a few days. Judging from this SnapChat I posted this morning (follow me @JenDeCurtins), I think it's safe to say all parties are [...]

  • Weekly Workouts + Fitness Fashion with The Track & Field Store

    { 8 comments }

    Hey everyone! I have a quick weekly workout post for you now and then I'll be back later with a weekend recap. It was a quiet week on the workout front because things have been anything but quiet on the life and work front. All good stuff though. And as I say on repeat, part [...]

  • Why You Should Sign Up for Yoga Workshops + Weekly Workouts

    { 12 comments }

    Hi everyone. It's been a rainy Sunday here which has been really cozy and good for productivity. For today's fitness-themed post I thought I would talk about why you should sign up for yoga workshops. Oftentimes, students (especially those in their first 1-2 years of practice) don't sign up for workshops because they think they [...]

  • Barry’s Bootcamp Review + Weekly Workouts

    { 15 comments }

    While I was in New York City I had the opportunity to finally check out a Barry's Bootcamp class after hearing about it for years. This trendy workout blends cardio and strength for a killer hour-long workout. I was eager to see what all of the hype was about. You'll find Barry's Bootcamp in big [...]

  • Dealing with Exercise Guilt + Weekly Workouts

    { 34 comments }

    A few weeks ago I received a question from a reader about exercise guilt. "Do you ever feel exercise guilt when you are unable to exercise for a few days? I ran my first 1/2 marathon 2 weeks ago and I have not been as active as I was prior to my race. Any advice, [...]

  • NYC By the Numbers + Weekly Workouts

    { 23 comments }

    It's been quiet over here for the last three days because NYC has taken all of my attention. We haven't stopped moving since we landed on Friday. We have eaten, walked and sight seen our way around this city and I can't wait to share our trip with you. I'll get to that when we [...]

  • How To and Why Single Leg Deadlift + Weekly Workouts

    { 17 comments }

    Earlier this week I shared a video on Instagram of two exercises that I love to train stabilization, glute strengthening and glute firing. One is the single leg deadlift. When I train clients I usually have them spend 5-10 minutes working on stabilization exercises which frequently include things like single leg squats and deadlifts. I [...]

  • The Benefits of AMRAP Workouts + This Week’s Workouts

    { 21 comments }

    Hi and welcome to the weekly workout recap! I regularly consider whether or not to keep writing this post every week because sometimes it feels a little "all about me" and redundant but then I receive feedback that it's really helpful for some of you and gives you ideas and inspiration. As a compromise, I've [...]

  • Summer of Stairs…And Weekly Workouts

    { 21 comments }

    I make my clients run stairs on the regular because it's really great cardio. It's quick and efficient for getting the heart rate up and a nice change from running and rowing. And I think it's safe to say that most of my clients would pick stairs over burpees. ;) Recently, I've been including more [...]

  • Best Workout Week: Boot Camp, Circuit Classes, Yoga and a 5K!

    { 16 comments }

    I'm super pumped to share this week's workout recap with you because for the entire week I felt motivated and challenged. I got out of my rut this week and actually attended a boot camp, participated in some circuit training classes at the gym and ran a 5K race. I've said this so many times [...]
