  • Weekend: Parties, Pups, Tiki Bars and Treats

    { 22 comments }

    It seems like every blog post has been heavy on the moving talk but it's taken over my life these last few weeks. For whatever reason I didn't expect it to be this big of a deal but it's been a steady stream of both work and emotions. My weekend was a mix of moving [...]

  • NYC Food + Fitness Girl’s Weekend: Day 2

    { 15 comments }

    Our alarms were set for 7 a.m. on Saturday morning to make it to Barry's Bootcamp for the 8 a.m. class. The wonderful thing about where we were staying is that we rarely found ourselves more than a mile from anywhere we wanted to go. Barry's Bootcamp was an easy half mile walk on Saturday. [...]

    Beach eats have been nothing but good! I have been fed so many delicious things here... The first night we had grilled flank steak, asparagus, salad, roasted potatoes and quiche. What a feast! Another dinner was pasta with sauteed shrimp and scallops with salad and green beans. These sea scallops were  so good. We went out [...]

    A photo heavy look at the last couple of days of friends, food and ice cream. Late night dinner of cheese, crackers, fruit, meats and wine on Friday after the acro yoga workshop. I'm having this again for dinner tonight! I am fairly certain that I could live off of cheese and meat plates. We [...]

  • The Most Important Practice: Self-Care

    { 18 comments }

    Take care of yourself so you are more able to receive. When I take care of myself — sleep, movement, space for not-doingness — then I’m better able to hear and see which way to go. You can’t be tuned in if your head and body are static with fatigue and stress. - Via Danielle [...]

  • Feed A Cold

    { 26 comments }

    Remember that old wives tale, "Feed a cold, starve a fever." Well, I am definitely feeding this cold. Here is a look at today's eats in a "What I ate Wednesday" format. Breakfast #1 was a Trader Joe's gluten-free waffle with peanut butter, honey and sliced banana. Breakfast #2 after subbing a hot yoga class [...]

    My Saturday was packed with excitement. A group of CrossFitters in Charlotte have started a Throwdown series where different CrossFit boxes take turns hosting a free friendly Saturday afternoon competition. Yesterday was our turn to host the Throwdown and it was so amazing! We had a huge turnout - over 150 people - and Sean, [...]

    I have settled into a nice vacation routine - and can I comment that I love that I can now call visiting my parents "vacation." Wake up around 7 and make coffee, edit previous day's photos for blog, make breakfast, write blog post, workout, beach, lunch, beach, shower and catch up on work emails, dinner, [...]

    True to my declaration that I was going to get back in the kitchen and a little more creative with my eats again, I spent the quite a lot of time cooking and baking this weekend. Here's a look at some of the things that came out of my kitchen...sweet and savory! Saturday I made [...]

  • The Peanut Butter Celebration

    { 21 comments }

    What better way to start this post than with the dessert that brought National Peanut Butter Lovers Day to a close on Thursday? That would be vanilla ice cream topped with a chopped Reese's Cup and Trader Joe's Midnight Moo chocolate syrup. This is seriously the dessert of my dreams. Reese's Cup Blizzards might be [...]

    I can't even begin to tell you how much I appreciate the congratulatory tweets, Facebook posts and blog comments about my new career move. I also can't express how much it means to me to read your extremely kind comments about the evolution of my career path over the past year. If you had told [...]

  • Eleven Useless Facts About Me

    { 64 comments }

    Morning! Sullie and I are up and at 'em. My Thursday is jam-packed so I'm taking advantage of the early morning hours to get some computer work done before it's go, go, go for the rest of the day. I'm hoping to brave the 28 degree temperatures to get a quick run in if I [...]

    Hello from Georgia! Sullie and I arrived at my grandmother's house around 1 p.m. and she has been glued to Mema's side ever since! Backing up...I made it out of bed around 6:45 this morning and promptly made breakfast and worked on some blog stuff. I have been on such a bagel kick lately. I [...]

  • Warm Me Up

    { 30 comments }

    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 [...]

  • Fueled by Ice Cream

    { 138 comments }

    Here for a quick check in. This sums up my week... :Daze: Let me reinforce that...I haven't practiced yoga in a week...and with the lack of yoga has come a sizable increase in coffee and ice cream consumption. A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. Thanks for the great comments on Stef's guest [...]

  • The Things You Don’t See

    { 14 comments }

    Recently I have received quite a few questions through email and comments on posts about my daily eats. The questions mainly focus on what I eat throughout the day, when I snack and if I show everything I eat on the blog. I most definitely think this is worth addressing for everyone. First and foremost, [...]

    I have to say that I enjoyed your comments on my last post but my grandmother loved them. I know I've mentioned this before but she reads my blog every day! When I got home from my run this morning she had just read the "Surprise Visit" post and said that it made her a [...]

  • Butterflies In My Belly

    { 28 comments }

    Oh my gahhhh...I spent the whole afternoon with major butterflies. My stomach hurt and I felt like I might throw up in the trash can at my desk at any moment. The reason for all of this anxiety? Last week my yoga teachers asked if I would like to told me I had to teach [...]

  • Manic Monday on a Tuesday

    { 3 comments }

    Whew...the long weekend was nice but today has been crazy. It definitely felt like a Monday even though it wasn't. I just sat down for the first time (it's 10 p.m.) since I left work. This evening I taught BodyPump, went to the grocery, cooked, cleaned, made my breakfast for tomorrow and packed my bag [...]

    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 [...]
