  • 7 Days Of Green Smoothies…The Aftermath


    Katherine and I would like to thank everyone who participated in the 7-Day Green Smoothie Challenge! It was such a fun week of sharing pictures, recipes and healthy eating. Check out this cool collage that Katherine put together with images from her week of green smoothies. And here is a collage that I put together [...]

  • Predictable. Patterned.


    As I was editing photos for today's blog post the first thing that came to mind was, "I am such a creature of habit. I am sooooo boring." My Sunday was pretty much a carbon copy of many Sundays prior. "Sleep in" until 8. Eat breakfast. Teach yoga. Come home, eat, blog, clean. Take yoga. [...]

  • Busy (Teaching) Bee


    Happy weekend. Here's what my Saturday looked like. I opened the yoga studio at 7 this morning and closed it at 5 this evening. I subbed four classes for a grand total of FIVE hours of teaching. To say that I am exhausted would be an understatement. And not only did I teach four classes [...]

  • FAQ Friday


    Happy Friday! One of the most rewarding things about blogging for me is interacting with readers. I can’t tell you how much I love receiving your emails, tweets and facebook posts about all of the incredible things you guys are out there doing. I am continually inspired by your dedication to making your life healthier [...]

  • My Daily Drinks


    How’s this short week treating you? I can’t believe it’s already Thursday! Can every week be a four-day work week please? ;) I missed posting yesterday. My schedule was just a little out of control. I taught a 6:40 a.m. yoga with weights class at Flex + Fit (my very first one and it went [...]

  • It’s My Birthday!


    Tomorrow (Thursday - when most of you will be reading this!) is my birthday! I will be 28 although I had someone at work today guess that I was 24. I just had a moment of weakness and thought that maybe I would post a baby picture but I'm going to save that for a [...]

  • Somebody’s Watching Me


    I loved hearing how you beat the blahs. I also loved how many responses I got about pets improving  your mood. I type this as Sullie has her head in my lap and is looking at me with "pat me" eyes. (Or maybe she's just begging for the peanut butter toast that I'm eating! ;)) [...]

  • Wedding Fun


    Thanks for the congrats on my new teaching gig! I will most definitely let y'all know how the new class formats go - yoga with weights will be a learning experience for me too! We had a really fun weekend. Saturday was full of my favorite things - yoga, the farmer's market, a Starbucks Soy [...]

  • Long Weekend Love


    Ahhh...I love Sunday night that feels like Saturday. It's so nice to know I don't have to be up at 5 a.m. Monday to teach BodyPump! (And not that I don't love it, it's just nice to have a morning off!) We've done our best to make this long weekend count since we're not traveling. [...]

  • BYOB Sushi


    Good morning! I hope everyone's long weekend is off to a good start (and I hope you all get to enjoy a long weekend!). We kicked off our weekend with sushi and wine so I can't complain. Cyros is our favorite sushi restaurant in Charlotte. We heard that they haven't been serving alcohol recently but [...]

  • Friday Deliciousness


    I'm happy that it's Friday night and we are staying in Charlotte this weekend. The next few weeks are going to be crazy with travel so I'm thankful to have this weekend to hang out and prepare. I started this Friday my very favorite way - hot vinyasa at Y2 Yoga. I've been attending the [...]

  • I’m actually becoming a yoga teacher!


    It's been a long, exhausting and amazing weekend. I just wrapped up weekend seven of eight of yoga teacher training and can't believe that we only meet one more time. The past three months have been so focused on teacher training (thank you for hanging in there with me for it!) and the end seemed [...]

  • First Long(ish) Run in Too Long


    I took advantage of my weekend off of yoga teacher training and the beautiful weather to get my first long(ish) run in since the half marathon in December on Sunday. I can't even believe how little I have been running since 2011 rolled around but my yoga practice has grown tremendously so I'm going with [...]

  • Workout Buddies


    Happy weekend! I'm enjoying our last weekend at home before we embark on four weekends straight of traveling in August. Eek! Luckily, they're all fun travel plans (including two beach trips - score!). Sometimes workouts are more fun with friends and I've been lucky to have some pretty awesome workout buddies this week. First, I [...]

  • Sushi and Cupcakes


    Happy Friday! We are staying in town again this weekend (yay!). The weekend feels so much longer when we do! Yesterday for lunch I had no appetite. Let me repeat that - I had no appetite. Weird. Unlike me. You know I'm a three meals a day kind of girl and I am always ready [...]

  • Catching Up and Fun News


    I have some fun happenings and yummy food to share with you from the past couple days since yesterday’s post was a nostalgic review of the last year. Thanks for reading and for your nice comments! I honestly can’t wait to see what the next year holds for us. Life truly is a journey! So [...]

  • Friday Already?


    How is it already Friday afternoon? This week has flown by – busy, busy, busy! We’ve been working like crazy on the house trying to get unpacked and establish a small degree of order before our friends Cristen and Graham arrived Friday. We planned this visit months ago and it just happened to end up [...]

  • Weekend Splurges


    I love Sunday mornings. The windows are open, the sun is shining and I'm catching up on the blog world while drinking coffee. I woke up around 8:30 this morning and immediately put on my running shoes. Sullie and I knocked out an easy 3.5 miles and came home to coffee and oats. This mornings [...]
