  • The Best Weekend + A Great Week of Workouts


    This has been a really great weekend. I've been trying to spend as much time outside as possible because the weather has been incredible. It's 70 and sunny right now! I'm currently sitting outside and working. Zoey is playing in the rosemary bush and Sullie is sun bathing. I had a pretty awesome Saturday. I taught [...]

  • Weekend: Pizza & My First Ray LaMontagne


    Hi. It's been a really great Monday. I would skip the weekend recap post and go straight into the new week (because it's bringing many changes) but the weekend was so good I have to share that quickly and then we'll move on! :) The weekend post is brought to you thanks to pizza, M&Ms and Ray [...]

  • Monday in the Life


    Hey there. I am moving fast...but it's a blur of good. I woke up at 1 a.m. last night and started to panic about everything that I have on my plate (the middle of the night will do that to you every time!) but I reframed my anxiety to focus on feeling gratitude for the [...]

  • Making It Worth It


    I tell my clients, students, friends and family all the time that all the hard work that is put into healthy eating and exercise isn't worth it if you can't live a little and splurge here and there. I put this into practice all the time. Take yesterday for example... My day started with pancakes. [...]

  • Weekend: Car Shopping, Restaurant Week and Brunch


    Hi there. I hope everyone had a good Monday. If you had the day off I hope you enjoyed it! First things first, I took this girl into the vet this morning and she received a CLEAN bill of health. I am so grateful. The lump on her belly is, in fact, a lipoma (fatty [...]

  • Saturday with Jay Z & Dinner Uptown


    Hello and happy Monday. I think it's back to reality for most of us after two weeks of holiday schedules. This is definitely the busy season in the fitness industry. The yoga studios were unbelievably packed over the weekend thanks to a new year and really cold, rainy days. I had over 60 yogis in [...]

  • One of Many Jens


    Hi and happy Sunday! I hope it's been a great weekend for everyone. I attended two very fun holiday parties last night. The first was our staff party for Metro where this photo was taken. It's the "Jen's." There are FOUR Jen's that work for Metro...and we only have 30ish employees. This has pretty much [...]

  • Sunday in Photos


    It's been a good weekend but I haven't stopped moving so I'm just now checking in with you. My weekend has been full of CrossFit, teaching yoga, Ikea trips, house project, social gatherings...busy but good and fun busy. Today's biggest accomplishment was assembling my first piece of Ikea furniture all by myself. Like using the [...]

  • Finally Kipping


    Thanks for all of the input on my hair color and recipe blog dilemma. The consensus was to go for the ombre trend (eek!!!) and to combine PBR and Bakin' and Eggs. So, I have some work to do! I'm not sure how long it will take for me to figure out how to get [...]
