  • Real Life Friday + 3 New Song Picks


    Happy Friday! Just a few updates for you before I go brave Ikea. If you don’t hear from me tomorrow send out the search teams. :P The first noteworthy item to share is that I am wearing regular people clothes to work today!!! This might be the second time ever. I took a 6:30 a.m. [...]

  • The Final Countdown


    I am so happy to be in a vertical position blogging in bed right now. I was a busy bee today trying to make all the final preparations for my trip tomorrow. I’ve always found it challenging to get things in a good place at work before I leave for vacations. I want for things [...]

  • Substitute Teacher


    It’s 10 p.m. I just finished dinner and killed a gigantic spider, breaking a glass in the process. I desperately need to shower. I thought my morning client was at 10 and our appointment was actually at 9. I subbed a yoga class tonight and two girls got up and left before class even started. [...]

  • Workouts, Meals, Interior Decorating and More!


    Hola! Happy Wednesday! How is it already Wednesday? My weeks just seem to fly by. That’s a good and bad thing, I guess. My Wednesday posts have been rather random the past few weeks so we’ll continue that trend today. I kind of ruined my opportunity for regular workouts this week when I did a [...]

  • Blog Direction + Green Coconut Curry Recipe


    I have been a little sporadic with posting lately. It’s not that I don’t have a ton of ideas for things that I want to post about (lacrosse ball mobility, active v. dynamic stretching, a stability ball core workout, a yoga for runners video, recipes, etc.), it’s more that I am lacking the time to [...]

  • A Healthy “Cookie” Fail


    While I was in the throws of domesticity yesterday, I took a breather on the couch and decided to browse my “i love peanut butter” board on Pinterest in search of a baking project. In a moment of weakness, I actually thought it would be a good idea to bake peanut butter cookies with chickpeas. [...]

  • Kicking Off Seven Days Of Green


    Happy Monday and happy first day of the 7-Day Green Smoothie Challenge! I kicked off my Monday by teaching BodyPump and then coming home and making a green protein smoothie. I kept it basic for day one. Here’s what we’re working with… 1 cup almond milk 6 crushed ice cubes 2 cups spinach (loosely packed [...]

  • Figuring It Out


    Happy Friday! I actually can’t believe that it is Friday. This was my first full week being at Metro and it flew by. I feel so lucky to be here and definitely know that it was the right decision for me to take this job. Everyone has been so welcoming and I’m so excited about [...]

  • The Soreness Settles In


    The breaking news for today is how freaking sore I am from yesterday’s workout. My low back is soooooo sore from the dead lifts. It requires major effort and groans to bend over today. I didn’t think the pushups were that bad when I was doing them but my chest is screaming at me now. [...]

  • A Crazy V-Day


    I am a broken record on Tuesdays. I’m exhausted. That’s all going to change soon though as I get back on a more normal schedule. Although I love everything that I have done today, I’m definitely looking forward to being a bit more focused and not all over the place all day, every day. The [...]

  • About this week…


    Alright, as much as I hate to do this…I’m going to have to back off of the blog a little bit this week. Don’t despair, I have a few guest posts lined up for you (and they are awesome!) but I need some time off to focus on other things. I will try to pop [...]

  • Kitchen Therapy


    It’s been quite a Monday. I left the house at 5:30 this morning to teach BodyPump, made a quick trip home at lunch to eat and pack clothes and then taught yoga and had another commitment after work. I didn’t get home until 9 p.m. Call me crazy but the only thing that I wanted [...]

  • Staying Busy


    I really appreciate your support and encouraging comments regarding my running hiatus due to my nagging hamstring injury. Sometimes I feel really guilty that I can’t give you all as much of the “runner” part of PBR that I’d like to. Trust me, I want to be out there running and racing so badly…but I [...]

  • Vacation Needed


    Not that I don’t love my blog but I love this even more. :D You didn’t hear from me last night because we were busy researching vacations. Brandon and I haven’t been on vacation in two years and it is time. We are both in desperate need of the kind of quality time together and [...]

  • A Weird Week


    The short week has really thrown me for a loop. On top of having one less day to get everything accomplished, we’ve also just had a lot going on and work has been really busy. As a result, I’ve felt a little off my game. One of the things I’m stressing most about this week [...]

  • Instead of…

    { 1 comment }

    The last two days have been filled with a lot of “instead of.” Let me explain… Instead of running my planned 5 miles last night, I grocery shopped, baked, cooked dinner and updated Bakin’ and Eggs. I was so tired yesterday and my muscles (especially my hips) were aching. It took a cup of Yogi [...]
