  • Saturday Road Trip + Week of Eats

    { 8 comments }

    Sullie and I loaded up around noon today for a road trip down to Georgia to visit my grandmother. Sadly, I left Zoey in very loving care in Charlotte because she's a little too crazy right now for me to manage by myself in the car for four hours. I was also worried about her [...]

  • Recent Eats + SNOW DAY!

    { 19 comments }

    Soooo..... It's snowing! We received a light dusting of an inch or two on Tuesday afternoon but the roads were fine and dry this morning. I went in to teach the 8:10 class at Y2 and then stayed to take the 9:15 and by the time I left at 11 the snow was pouring down [...]

  • A Pho-Tastic Start to the Year & Some Shopping Finds

    { 26 comments }

    Happy second day of 2014! It's cold and gray here in Charlotte but I'm combating that by eating lots of comfort food like oatmeal and grilled cheese and tomato soup and I have a big pot of homemade chicken noodle soup going on the stove for tonight's dinner. And as usual I'm drinking hot tea [...]

  • Gravity Finally + Recent Eats

    { 13 comments }

    Today was...long. It started with a 4 a.m. alarm that necessitated two naps later in the day. One 15-minute "I'm just going to lay here and close my eye during the floor work" in yoga class and one 45-minute mid-afternoon full out nap. In general, I'm not a napper. I have a hard time slowing [...]

  • A Day In The Life Tuesday

    { 24 comments }

    I thought it would be fun to do a post about what Tuesday looked like for me versus another "day in the life" post I did on Tuesday, October 18, 2011. The 2011 post was written just a few weeks after I left my full-time job in advertising to pursue fitness but I had not [...]

I am thrilled that it's a beautiful spring weekend and I'm spending it in Georgia with my family. I am so grateful that I was able to get away for the weekend for some family time. It's been [...]

    Today I completed the BodyPump Advanced Instructor Module 1! I have been wanting to go through advanced instructor training for a long time now so I was thrilled to discover a course was being offered in Cary. I signed up a couple of months ago and today was the big day! I love BodyPump (read [...]

  • Sleep is Good

    { 0 comments }

    After NINE solid hours of sleep last night I feel like a completely new person. I had reached the point of exhaustion and a good night's sleep was exactly what I needed. My energy levels were much higher today and the on and off headache I've had for the last five days finally went away. [...]
