  • A Response & Regular Stuff

    { 15 comments }

    Good morning. I so appreciate all of your insightful and kind comments on yesterday's post. I guess what I want to say in return is that I have been through an incredible amount of change in my professional and personal life over the past two years. Literally everything has changed. I have experienced a broad [...]

  • Baked Lemon-Thyme Risotto

    { 8 comments }

    Risotto is one of my favorite "let's make dinner feel fancy" foods. It always seems like more of a treat to me than a typical rice/quinoa/cous cous side dish. Now, call me crazy but I love to make risotto the traditional way where you commit to constant stirring for 30 minutes. Give me a glass [...]

  • (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 [...]

  • Free Your Mind

    I am feeling low on energy today. I don't know if it's a "holiday hangover," the gray day or maybe I'm coming down with something (please God no...) but I am lethargic and blah. I am sure that a workout would energize me and get me moving but I am not sure how likely that [...]

  • Cooking with Chobani

    { 22 comments }

    Last week I was invited to attend a holiday cooking event at the Chobani office in Charlotte. I love all things food and cooking and I love Chobani so I eagerly accepted. Chobani opened a sales office in uptown Charlotte about six months ago. Their offices are on the sixteenth floor of one of the [...]

  • One Workout Away

    { 30 comments }

    You know that saying, "You're only one workout away from a good mood?" I experienced that in a major way last Thursday. I was scheduled to teach BodyPump at the Y but I came up with a list of reasons why I didn't want to teach and even sent out a last minute sub request. [...]

  • Finally Kipping

    { 30 comments }

    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 [...]

  • Tuesday Scenes

    I was excited to receive your great feedback on my CrossFit Endurance seminar post. I am looking forward to covering some of the topics in depth that I mentioned. I'm busy, busy today so I'm just going to give you a quick look at Tuesday in photos. I woke up at 5:45 a.m. to practice [...]

  • Transformation

    { 14 comments }

    How many times have I said this? It has been a year of transformation. For the most part the transformation has been exciting and has left me feeling inspired and incredibly blessed. But it's not all so easy. There comes a time when the shine wears off and reality sets in. And although I am [...]
