  • Recent Eats: How Much Is Too Much?


    Welcome to Recent Eats, the "how much is too much...SALMON (and tuna)!" edition. I love salmon. We have it at least once a week for dinner and I usually cook enough so that I have leftovers to use as a salad topper. I also default to a can of salmon or tuna as a salad topper if [...]

  • And Upside Down & Inverted Saturday + Recent Eats


    It's been a wonderful but exhausting day. I taught two hot yoga classes this morning and then headed back to the studio to teach an arm balance and inversions workshop this afternoon. I love, love, love all things inverted and upside down and teaching these workshops is rewarding and a lot of fun. This was [...]

  • The MOST Delicious Week of Eats!


    I think this might be the best week of eats that I've had to share with you in a really long time. Some great meals here in Charlotte coupled with being in my dad's kitchen has been a pretty awesome combo. Let's dive right in. Warning, you will be hungry after reading this post! Breakfast [...]

  • Weekend: Day Trip + Seafood Extravaganza + So Much Cake


    After my riveting Friday night in I actually did have a jam-packed weekend (jam-packed with goodness). After my long run Saturday I headed over to Om Yoga to teach hot vinyasa. Class request was to do handstand work so I had them move their mats against the wall halfway through class and we stayed that [...]

  • This Week’s Eats + That (Scary) Time I Tried Chia Pudding


    Good morning and happy weekend! Let's take a look at this week's eats. Breakfast Let's kick this post off with the WORST idea I've had so far in 2014...chia seed pudding. I made this mix of chia seeds, almond milk, vanilla, bananas and dried cranberries and let it sit overnight. I topped it with peanut [...]

  • An Awesome(ly hard) Partner Workout


    Oh man...it's been a heavy workout day and I am so happy to be sitting down right now. Before I launch into all the details, here is a look at last night's dinner. Grilled okra, grilled king clip and brown rice. After dinner I was able to tame my sweet tooth and avoid dessert. I [...]

  • Rest, Eat and Repeat


    Since my arrival in Atlanta I have done little more than eat, rest and hang out. Due to general exhaustion and the fact that I still can't completely kick this cough, I took Wednesday as a rest day. I did go on a walk with my mom and their sweet golden, Sam, (who makes me [...]

  • What you don’t see…


    My weeks start off so busy and then kind of taper off. I like it that way. It's nice to be really productive at the beginning of the week and reduce the intensity as it goes on. Mondays and Tuesdays are usually my very busiest days of the week (remember my "Day in the Life" [...]

  • Food Truck Fun


    Happy Friday! I have a quick break between classes so I thought that I would get you updated before the weekend. Be on the lookout, I'm going to be posting my first real workout post this weekend. I did an outdoor cardio strength circuit yesterday that I want to share with you. It was a [...]

  • A Happy Homecoming + Weekend Part Two


    I will start this post with some really good news – my grandmother is home from the hospital! She was released yesterday afternoon and is so happy to be home. It’s really crazy how quickly the doctors get you moving after surgery. They had her up and sitting in a chair within two days and [...]

  • A Trader Joe’s Problem


    I have a problem. I can't leave Trader Joe's without spending $40. I walk in the door with intentions of only purchasing two or three things and end up filling up my whole basket. And I don't know how this happens but a full basket magically translates to $40. Take tonight for example, my list [...]

  • The Beets are Back


    After enjoying the ready-to-eat beets from Trader Joe’s and seeing beets all over the blog world recently, I decided it was time to take a stab at cooking with them. I found this beautiful bunch of beets at the farmer’s market on Saturday for $2. I really wanted to use the beet greens too so [...]
