  • Recent Eats: Fueling for Performance & Recovery + Give Me Sandwiches & Cookies

    { 19 comments }

    I am having a tough time recovering from this half marathon! I think it was the combination of the effort I put into it with the extra cold conditions that took a toll on my body because I went into the race super rested. I was really sore for two days and now I just [...]

  • The Weekend + Love, Empowerment & Acceptance for All

    { 11 comments }

    I wish I could say that my weekend was full of fun and exciting things but about all I've got for you is book writing, avocados and a cute golden retriever. I received an 80 page word document full of tracked changes to review from my copy editor that was due by Sunday evening. It [...]

  • Recent Eats + Early Morning Workouts

    { 40 comments }

    Hi and happy Wednesday! I just finished teaching my 6:30 a.m. yogis at Y2 Yoga. This is one of my favorite classes of the week. Most of the people who come to this class are getting their yoga in before they go to work and they're serious, focused and hard working! It's so special to [...]

  • Homeland: My Experience as an Extra

    { 35 comments }

    I'm not sure if you guys watch Homeland but if you don't...you should. It's an awesome show with a very engaging and interesting storyline. I have no idea why but Homeland picked Charlotte as their filming location and they are now in their third season of filming here. Facebook was all abuzz last week with [...]

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for the kind words about my post yesterday. I spent a lot longer on the post than I usually do.  I kept going back and editing it and I considered not publishing it at all. When I did publish it, I immediately wanted to take it down. It can [...]

  • Anticipation + Beach Reads 2012

    { 25 comments }

    I am so excited I can hardly stand it! This time tomorrow I'll be arriving here... My parents just moved to Okaloosa Island which is located on the Florida panhandle just outside of Destin. We actually grew up going to Destin for two weeks every summer (back when it was a small beach town!) and [...]

  • Fight Gone Bad

    Uh...I'm kind of gross right now. I am sitting on the couch unshowered after nearly dying at a CrossFit event this afternoon. I came home with intentions of showering and then started cleaning and baking and lost motivation. Now I'm too tired to do anything. Lots to fill you in on. Last night I went [...]

    Happy President's Day! I hope that some of you are enjoying a day off. Unfortunately, I am not. I taught 6 a.m. BodyPump (and had quite a few members who came for early class on their day off...so awesome!) and now I have to spend the rest of my day in CPR and First Aid [...]

  • Sunday Sameness

    Good morning and happy Monday! I hope that your day is off to a positive start. Mine is off to a sore start. I did another ashtanga practice at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday with David Keil. My practice felt really good and I was happy that after a long hiatus from ashtanga that I was [...]

    There's a chance that I may not be able to lift my arms above my head tomorrow. No, really. I got my booty handed to me this morning. One minute I was shadowing another personal trainer at the gym and the next thing I knew I was doing the workout with the client. When he [...]

  • Sunday by the Numbers

    { 20 comments }

    1: Hour-long nap. It was my first nap in months. In general, I don’t nap (you read my blog…you know I can’t slow down) but for some reason I was determined to take one Sunday. I came home from teaching yoga, inhaled an egg sandwich and promptly passed out. Sullie was more than happy to [...]

  • Make This Lunch

    { 28 comments }

    I have been starving for the past few days. Insatiable hunger that has me waking up hungry, that makes my stomach growl for lunch by 10:30, that leaves me feeling ready for an afternoon snack just an hour after lunch and that requires a substantial dinner. This crazy hunger is nothing new…I experience it for [...]
