  • Warm Brussels Sprout Salad with a Poached Egg

    { 14 comments }

    Hold on to your hats because I'm about to write something that's going to make you wonder if you're reading the right blog. This fall I am testing out some changes to my diet. I'm swapping smoothies for oatmeal and salads for soup and warm veggies. I know, I know. Totally goes against everything you've [...]

  • Getting Back in the Groove…Recent Eats + Bacon Brussels Sprouts Love

    { 9 comments }

    I have been so out of the regular blogging groove lately that it's been almost two weeks since I've posted a weekly workout recap or a recent eats post. But that doesn't mean I haven't been working out eating well. Quite the opposite, actually. I have been feeling pretty motivated when it comes to my workouts [...]

  • Scenes from Girl’s Weekend in Asheville

    { 21 comments }

    My girlfriends and I deserve a record for how much we packed into 24 hours in Asheville while still staying totally relaxed and in vacation mode. We ate, drank, shopped, yogaed and talked non-stop. Side note, I think I need a second residence in Asheville. I would be up there all the time to eat, [...]

  • Updates All-Around: Career & The Usual Stuff

    { 17 comments }

    It's been a really good week. I recently stepped out of my role as general manager of the gym and into a position where I provide marketing, website, communications and social media support on a more part-time basis. This frees me up to spend more time teaching, training and writing while still allowing me to [...]

  • Monday Productivity, Meals & Teaching Cycle

    { 13 comments }

    When my alarm went off at 6 a.m. on Monday morning I considered rolling over and going back to sleep but instead I thought about all the things I wanted to accomplish on Monday and decided to start my day with yoga instead of blowing off my practice. It was a great decision! My practice [...]

  • Snow + Yoga + Food

    { 25 comments }

    What a weird weekend. On Friday I was running in a tank top and crops and less than 24 hours later... It was 30 degrees and unexpectedly snowing hard along with thunder...which has been coined "thundersnow." I think we got like 2 inches in a matter of hours. It was so bizarre...snow is such a [...]

  • Thanksgiving 2012

    { 9 comments }

    I was really undecided about what to do for Thanksgiving this year. Part of me wanted to pretend like it wasn't happening. I almost stayed in Charlotte and planned to take friends up on offers to celebrate with them but I made a last minute decision to drive to Georgia to be with my family. [...]

  • Random Cravings

    Good morning! I was up before the sun this morning to make sure I could fit in a blog update before I tackle my busy day. I love the quietness of early morning hours. It's one of my favorite times to get writing/reading work done. I also love sunrise runs and hope to get back [...]

  • Comfort Food

    { 15 comments }

    Well, before we get to comfort food I feel the need to address this crazy show I'm watching on TV, Mobbed. "Host Howie Mandel puts a hidden-camera spin on the "flash mob" concept. Mandel and hundreds of strangers will help special guests plan extraordinary surprises for friends, family members, loved ones or co-workers. These unknowing [...]
