    Day in the life Tuesday for you today. For whatever reason I seem to always do these posts on Tuesdays and it's fun to look back at past years and compare. - Here's a day in the life from 2011 in my first month of a full-time career in fitness. - Here's a day in [...]

  • Monday in the Life

    { 23 comments }

    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 [...]

  • No More Sunday Night Blues

    { 12 comments }

    This month marks three years of working in health and fitness as my full-time career...and what a three years it has been. When I started this new path I was personal training, teaching yoga and writing the blog on the side - how that would change! Over the last three years I've held the following job [...]

  • Day in the Life Friday

    Hello and happy Friday! Here's a little day in the life for you. 4:55 a.m. - alarm goes off. I didn't get in bed until midnight the night before due to the baseball game and then work stuff when I got home so that alarm came early. 5:30 a.m. - train my first client. I [...]

    { 8 comments }

    4:50 a.m. - alarm goes off. I didn't fall asleep until midnight (with the help of a guided meditation) so this felt very early after three weeks straight of 5:30 a.m. clients and lack of quality sleep. 5:30 a.m. - gym to train a client who is in her third trimester and a close friend [...]

  • Running 4K (yes, you read that right) for Cancer

    { 7 comments }

    Good morning and Happy Halloween! My morning got off to a scary start with a pre-5 a.m. wake up call to train a new client at 5:30. There is something about waking up in the 4 a.m. hour that feels so much earlier than after 5. The good news, I slept like a champ last [...]

  • PBR Celebrates Two Years

    { 453 comments }

    Hi! It's a pretty big Monday for Peanut Butter Runner. Today is my two-year anniversary of blogging on PBR. I started blogging over four years ago on my (now very neglected) food/recipe blog, Bakin' and Eggs. It's hard to believe that I've been involved in blog world for so long. It's a pretty cool thing [...]

  • 2011 In Review: The Top 10

    { 19 comments }

    I am not even sure what to think about 2011. I have said this at least 100 times but it has been a year of complete transformation. When I look back at January 1, 2011 I was working full-time in advertising, teaching two BodyPump classes per week and had just made the decision to go through [...]
