  • 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 [...]

  • Friday Video Post – Your Questions Answered


    Hi! Yay for Friday! Yay for a long weekend! I have a ton going on right now and wasn't feeling very inspired about today's post. I decided to ask on Facebook what you guys wanted me to blog about and I received a lot of great suggestions and questions. I decided to answer them in [...]

  • Tuesday > Monday


    I'm happy to report that my Tuesday outlook has been much sunnier than my Monday mood. The day started off on a good note when I decided to sleep until 7 a.m. rather than get up in the five o'clock hour to practice yoga. I love yoga, immensely, but right now my practice has taken [...]

  • BodyPump 80 Review + Friday Update


    I don't think I've been so happy to see the arrival of a weekend since I started fitness full-time. This may have been my busiest week yet and I definitely taught the most classes that I have ever taught in one week - 18 between Sunday and today! That is insane. I am determined that [...]

All previous attempts at this pose had resulted in a complete topple over so I was in shock when I [...]

  • All About Ambiance


    When we went to bed on Friday night the plan was to get up and drive to the mountains on Saturday morning to spend the day shopping and hanging out. Well, Saturday rolled around and I procrastinated working out/getting ready and sat around in my PJs and Brandon didn't wake up until 10 so we [...]

  • 10 Days Out


    So. We are 10 days out from Christmas and I have done zero shopping. I haven't even considered a list of possible ideas. Holiday cards were a no go this year. Call me Scrooge but I'm kind of just ready to put 2011 in the books and move on to January. Sigh. I should probably [...]

  • Manual Labor


    Tomorrow I may not be able to move. "Project Yard Overhaul" started today and included six hours of raking, bagging, ivy ripping, shrubbery cutting and more. Our back yard is really wooded and is kind of out of control. It's been a mess since we bought our house a year ago and we're determined to [...]
