  • Recent Eats: Trying to Switch It Up a Bit


    Happy weekend! I have almost a full week of eats to share with you. I think I did a good job mixing it up a little bit this week and breaking out of all my same patterns. You'll see some different breakfasts, new salad combos at lunch and a dinner using the crock pot. I'm [...]

  • Grilled Cheese, Gnocchi & Green Smoothies


    First things first, thanks for the comments on my Monday post. It feels really good to know that I can open up and write from the heart and be supported in that. It's even better when you tell me it resonates with you and that it even helps out in any small way. I am [...]

  • Recent Eats + Friday Pizza Night


    It's been another weird week with a holiday sandwiched in the middle of it but really good nonetheless. The flu is making its way around Charlotte something serious but luckily I got a flu shot this year so I seem to be avoiding it but I have been trying to help out some friends in [...]

  • Fireplace Coziness, Scandal & Recent Eats


    Morning. It's cold and gray in Charlotte this morning. Perfect weather for the first fire of the season last night. Fires and candles make things so cozy. Especially for watching my newest obsession Scandal. This show is highly addictive. I started watching it on Netflix a few weeks ago and I'm already halfway through season two. [...]

  • Comfort Food In The Cold


    Good morning! I hope y'all are having a great week so far. How is it already Wednesday? It's flying by! We had one of those crazy turns in weather yesterday where it was 60 degrees at 10 a.m. but the wind picked up and the temperature dropped quickly. It was 40 and dark by 4 [...]

  • What I’ve Been Eating Wednesday


    Hi and happy hump day! I'm here with nothing but food pictures for you today after yesterday's hair extravaganza! Thanks for all your comments and compliments. Apparently I need to buy a curling iron and spend some time on YouTube if I want to master curling my own hair. I started my day by teaching [...]

  • Carb Me


    Y'all...I don't know what's been up with me but I have been craving carbs something fierce over the last couple of weeks. Tomato sandwiches... Sliders... Cookies...(and one AMAZING carrot cake whoopie pie from Whole Foods on Saturday night which I devoured it its entirety while watching Mad Men). Grilled cheese with avocado and a fried [...]

  • Customer Service Win + The Best Grilled Cheese Ever


    This was a working Saturday for me which I was prepared for. Unfortunately, it also ended up being stressful on the life front for a couple of reasons including my car going crazy. Car trouble is always no bueno but I am so lucky with how my situation turned out. Let's start with breakfast. I [...]

  • Slowing Down


    I'm not even a huge Beyonce fan and I have to say that her halftime performance was pretty fierce. I am parked on the couch under a blanket with a box of tissues. I have an annoying cold that is causing my nose to steadily stream. How is it possible for the human body to [...]

  • 6.3 Percent


    Happy, happy, happy Friday. I am so very excited to see the arrival of the weekend although I still have a really tough CrossFit workout to complete and client to train before I can officially call it the weekend. I bundled up and braved the pouring down cold rain last night to teach BodyPump 84 [...]

  • Deep Stretch At MOGA Yoga


    I really enjoyed reading your responses to my "On Showing Up" post. They were very thought provoking and insightful. I will be responding to all of them and also writing a "Part 2" post because I have a lot more to say about the topic. I also appreciate the concern and kind words about my [...]

  • How Not To Deal


    I don't know that there is much more I can say about myself over the past few days other than the absolute fact that I have been a little bit of a disaster. In all fairness, I do have quite a few stressful/emotional situations occurring simultaneously but I can't say that I'm doing the best [...]

  • Odds And Ends


    This post is going to be a little bit of this, little bit of that. SOYJOY Giveaway Winner Comment #157 from Ashley. I promise that the winning comment number was randomly generated and I did not play favorites based on peanut butter dipping! Frog-dog Half dog, half frog, 100% cute.  Pumpkin First fall bowl of pumpkin banana oatmeal. Sullie is excited to [...]

  • Summer Saturday


    Saturday was such a good day. The weather in Charlotte is incredible this weekend and I've been soaking it up as much as possible. So much so that instead of yoga or CrossFitting Saturday morning, I did this... Ran! I set out to run 3 or 4 but I felt so good that I ended [...]

  • Feeling Supported – Opening Week!


    I'm so happy to finally check in! We survived opening day of Metro CrossFit & Training Center on Monday...and it was a HUGE success! We're offering free classes all week to anyone in the community that wants to check out our new facility as part of our preview week. Classes have been packed and the [...]

  • All Hail The Grilled Cheese


    It's a grilled cheese for dinner kind of night over here. I was craving simple comfort food after a crazy day. I have had a serious love for grilled cheese sandwiches since high school. My favorite combo used to be just bread, muenster (so stringy!) and butter but I've broadened my grilled cheese horizons a [...]

  • Tuesday Scenes


    I was excited to receive your great feedback on my CrossFit Endurance seminar post. I am looking forward to covering some of the topics in depth that I mentioned. I'm busy, busy today so I'm just going to give you a quick look at Tuesday in photos. I woke up at 5:45 a.m. to practice [...]

  • Squats, Lunges and Cupcakes


    Remember the workout I posted yesterday? It ended up taking me about 30 minutes total to complete with the running and CrossFit WOD and clearly it was effective because my glutes (we'll be PC here) are sore today. When girls ask me "how do I get rid of this" while pointing to their upper thighs, [...]

  • Sullie Goes To Work


    I had a good Friday but Sullie had a REALLY great Friday. I started my day with an early morning yoga practice and apple cinnamon oatmeal before heading into the office. (How sick are you of my oatmeal kick?) I came home for lunch and made a classic lunch combo - grilled cheese and tomato [...]

  • Warm Me Up


    The week is off to a cold start here in Charlotte. I admit that I am a total baby when it comes to cold weather and I do everything I can to stay warm. I bundle up in jackets and hoodies even when I'm indoors, constantly have a scarf around my neck, camp out in [...]

  • NoDa Night


    Hey, hey! Hope everyone is having a great weekend! I owe you a Friday recap...it was a really good one so let's get right to it. First, I got to start my day with yoga, which was amazing. I have been so busy lately that I've been limited to practicing 2-3 times per week. I'm [...]

  • 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 [...]

  • A Surprise Visit


    Hello from Georgia! Surprise! I decided Wednesday afternoon that I was going to come visit my grandmother for a few days. I packed the car up at lunch today and hit the road after work. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate with my travel plans and I battled quite a few severe thunderstorms (hail, cloud [...]

  • Super Fruit Friday (and a giveaway!)


    I was going to wait until Saturday to post this so that I could title it Super Fruit Saturday (it just flows better than Super Fruit Friday) but I know how you guys operate and more of you read on Fridays than Saturdays. Why do I care what day you're reading? Because I have an [...]

  • Self Awareness


    Today I'm focusing on self awareness during exercise. We are lucky at the Y that we are able to team teach BodyPump. I have a co-instructor and we split teaching the class 50/50. One of us teaches while the other participates as well as walks around and corrects technique. Tonight while I was walking around [...]

  • Finding My Marathon Motivation


    I know the name of this blog is Peanut Butter Runner but it shouldn't come as surprise to most of you (if you know me in real life or if you have been reading for a while) that I have been feeling really over running for a while. I committed to running the Marine Corps [...]

  • Worth the Work


    So maybe it wasn't the best idea to launch a new blog in the middle of closing on a house and moving. I'm sorry that I haven't been able to get daily updates in but I feel like I've been working nonstop on the house. I've set my alarm early every day this week to [...]
