  • Back At It

    { 15 comments }

    I thought I'd take a little break from the Chicago posts for a dose of reality. I actually do have a little more Chicago to share with you later this week, especially our multi-course, multi-hour dinner at RPM Italian! ;) But for today, here is how I transition from a weekend of splurge back to [...]

  • (Slow) CrossFit Progress

    { 12 comments }

    One of the things I like about CrossFit are how many things there are to work on. Just when you get the hang of something, there are tons of other movements to focus on. It's also really interesting to see everyone's unique strengths and weaknesses. I tend to excel at bodyweight and endurance focused workouts [...]

  • 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 [...]

  • Sickness Settles In

    { 13 comments }

    Good news! I just got a killer deal on a flight to go visit my parents at the beach in early October. The weather should be absolutely beautiful and I'm looking forward to a long weekend on the beach and some quality time with my family! Until then I'll be dreaming of this... Bad news. [...]

  • The Solution For Smelly Workout Clothes

    { 32 comments }

    Happy Friday! Dealing with smelly workout clothes is a topic that I've been meaning to cover for quite some time. When I first started practicing yoga it seemed like I could never get my clothes and YogiToes really clean. Even when they seemed fresh, the minute I started sweating in class the smell would come [...]

  • Cleaning It Up + CrossFit Fun

    { 38 comments }

    I'm back! It's been a bit of a busy week around here so I have been focusing on work. I've been teaching a lot of yoga and we have so much going on at Metro. We're preparing for the opening of our second location and there is so much happening. It's so exciting and I [...]

  • Golden Goodness

    { 25 comments }

    Happy President's Day! I hope that some of you are enjoying a day off. Unfortunately, I am not. I taught 6 a.m. BodyPump (and had quite a few members who came for early class on their day off...so awesome!) and now I have to spend the rest of my day in CPR and First Aid [...]

  • My Daily Drinks

    { 27 comments }

    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 [...]

  • Weekend Build Up

    { 12 comments }

    I keep typing and deleting, typing and deleting...this is a nightly occurrence. Figuring out how to start posts is usually the hardest part about writing them. That and coming up with a title. I am majorly title-challenged. Anyway...how was your Friday? Mine was okay. Like I do every Friday (or really just about every morning), [...]

  • New Teaching Opportunities

    { 13 comments }

    Happy weekend! It's a beautiful day here in Charlotte. I kicked it off with an early morning yoga practice, Starbucks and a trip to the farmer's market to stock up on veggies. I love summer Saturdays! We were out late last night so I didn't get a chance to update so here is the scoop [...]

  • Fun and Un-Fun News

    { 27 comments }

    FUN NEWS Fun news #1: I'm teaching my first yoga class tomorrow!!! My supervisor at the Y asked if I would like to sub a class and I decided to go for it. At the Y, you just have to be in the process of getting your 200-hour RYT (registered yoga teacher) to teach so [...]

  • Holiday Happiness

    { 12 comments }

    I have been full of happiness and smiles the last couple of days. First, by your overwhelming support of my decision to pursue yoga teacher training. Second, I've been surrounded by amazing friends that I don't see often. And third, I wrapped up work today and have almost a whole week off for Christmas! Hooray [...]

  • Preparation

    { 14 comments }

    I'm in full Marine Corps Marathon prep mode. There's a detailed list (that's a little dirty - it's been living in the kitchen!) and I've started laying everything out in our extra room. Also, I'm prepping my body with food and beverages. Lunch was a delicious panini creation. White cheddar, provolone, spinach and blueberry preserves [...]

  • Pancakes for Dinner

    { 9 comments }

    My day started and ended with breakfast. Yum! Breakfast for dinner is the best and I don't know why we don't have it more often! Is anyone else a fan of breakfast for dinner? Before we get to the pancakes, let's start at the beginning. Breakfast: overnight oats at my desk this morning. I was [...]

  • Good Eats and Kombucha Returns

    { 7 comments }

    I really have not felt inspired to document all of my food over the last week or so. I’ve been enjoying the flexibility of sharing with you what’s on my mind – like long runs, abs and beach trips. Besides, I think it’s more interesting that way. Do you really care what I eat for [...]

  • Full Disclosure

    { 1 comment }

    Full disclosure on this healthy living blog: after my post earlier in the week about how to menu plan for the week and avoiding the temptation to eat out on a weeknight, I totally caved last night and we went out for dinner. :oops: It is extremely rare that we eat out on a weeknight [...]

  • Crazy for Kombucha

    { 5 comments }

    This morning started out like most Friday mornings - with a hot vinyasa yoga class at Y2. I rarely miss this Friday morning class. I think it's the perfect way to kick off my weekend! While I was getting ready for work I put a pot of oats on for breakfast. Today's mix featured 1/3 [...]
