100 Rep Core Workout + How to Stay Dry Through It

100 Rep Core Workout + How to Stay Dry Through It

This post is sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions and this killer core workout are my own. No matter if your workout of choice is running, yoga, lifting, CrossFit, cycling, boxing, hiking or just hitting the gym, it's safe to say that you need a) a strong core and b) a deodorant or anti-antiperspirant [...]

Good morning! I didn't mean to not post for four days but then I got distracted by grandmothers and goldens. I came down to Florida to spend a long weekend with my family for Mother's Day. It's been a great visit and I'll be heading back to Charlotte later this evening. In the meantime, I'll [...]

Recent Eats: Smoothie Bowls, Lunch Bowls & One Awesome Sushi Bowl

Y'all, I'm cracking up over here. I always know that it's around the 3 p.m. hour because I hear our mail lady vrooming around the neighborhood delivering mail. She GUNS that little truck from box to box and you can hear it all over the neighborhood. I'm going to get a little crazy and switch [...]

Resort Review: Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita Riviera Maya

Weekend: My First Travel Yoga Workshop!

Weekend: My First Travel Yoga Workshop!

Over the weekend I taught my very first travel yoga workshop. It's been a goal of mine for many years but to be completely honest, I doubted myself and my ability to do it SO much that I was never proactive about booking any. And being the marketing director for a studio, I know how [...]

Top 5 from the Weekend

Top 5 from the Weekend

We are in the middle of three days of steady rain and chilly temperatures. We're really getting our "April showers" in before welcoming May. I actually love a few days of dreary weather.

It's a rainy Sunday over here. I just baked four loaves of sourdough bread (two to gift, two to cut and save). We enjoyed a quiet morning at home but I'm about to head to the studio for the rest of the day. It's the final weekend of our winter/spring 200-hour teacher training program so [...]

9 Years Ago Today + Recent Eats: All the Easter Ham!

9 Years Ago Today + Recent Eats: All the Easter Ham!

I usually spend the first five minutes or so when I wake up doing a quick check-in with email and social media. While this probably isn't the best way to wake up, it's a nice buffer between sleep and my feet hitting the floor. One of the things I almost always check before getting out [...]

Boston Strong + Running Wishes + Weekly Workouts + Playlist

It's Marathon Monday! I was watching a video of the elite women taking off at the starting line and I thought to myself, "I'm pretty sure that's what I think I look like taking off for a 5K." I can't even imagine going out of the gate like that for a marathon. Incredible athleticism and [...]

Workshop Weekend + What I Bought at Whole Foods

We made it to Friday! While work on the back end has been really busy for the studio and my blog, Charlotte has been really quiet this week. The public schools are on spring break and it seems like half the city is gone on vacation. Before I dive into a peek into my Whole [...]

Workouts + Workout Playlist + Wedding Weekend Part 1

We got home from Florida around 4 p.m. on Sunday from a super fun long wedding weekend in the St. Petersburg, Florida area. We were a few hours delayed in getting home and these two couldn't wait to see us (but let's be honest...we were probably even more excited than them). After a quick stop [...]
