  • Sweaty Tuesday + Really Good Recent Eats

    { 22 comments }

    Hey, hey! I had a very sweaty Tuesday. I taught hot yoga at 6 a.m., 9:15 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. and also took a class at 11:15 a.m. My 6 a.m. was hilarious...I had two people walk in at 6:30 a.m. half way through class and rolling out their mats thinking it was Monday (our [...]

  • Zoey at 7 Months + Sandwich Cravings + Homemade Dinners

    { 18 comments }

    Hi and hope Wednesday was kind to you. I had a really great day. Taught three hot yoga classes, practiced yoga, trained a client, lots of computer work and a wonderful therapy session about work/stress/chaos and work addiction...of which I am guilty and I committed to putting timelines around letting things go. I was grateful [...]

  • Getting Back in the Groove…Recent Eats + Bacon Brussels Sprouts Love

    { 9 comments }

    I have been so out of the regular blogging groove lately that it's been almost two weeks since I've posted a weekly workout recap or a recent eats post. But that doesn't mean I haven't been working out eating well. Quite the opposite, actually. I have been feeling pretty motivated when it comes to my workouts [...]

  • Recent Eats: Fueling for Performance & Recovery + Give Me Sandwiches & Cookies

    { 19 comments }

    I am having a tough time recovering from this half marathon! I think it was the combination of the effort I put into it with the extra cold conditions that took a toll on my body because I went into the race super rested. I was really sore for two days and now I just [...]

  • Fall For Real + Recent Eats

    { 18 comments }

    As much as I've tried to avoid fall and have complained about all the early pumpkin pushing, it's here. Today is the first full day of fall and it sure does feel like it in Charlotte. It's 60 degrees, gray and raining on and off. My body and mind are feeling the change of seasons. I woke up [...]

  • Loving Lately: Welcome Summer

    { 12 comments }

    Today is the official first day of summer and I couldn't be happier. Summer is hands down my favorite season of the year. I can't get enough of the long days, warm weather and everything that goes along with it. Here's a look at what I've been loving lately as we welcome summer. Tomato sandwiches [...]

  • Friday I’m In Love…

    { 9 comments }

    This is the happiest kind of Friday of them all...a long weekend Friday! Although I'm not traveling anywhere, I'm hoping to make the above photo a reality. My grand plans for the weekend include sleeping, pool time with friends, movies and just hanging out at home. Sounds like the perfect stay-cation to me! Here are [...]

  • This Week’s Eats + What Can’t You Live Without

    { 24 comments }

    Happy Friday! This week flew by thanks to days packed with training and teaching and evenings packed with social engagements. I usually try not to plan more than one weeknight out per week but this week I was out Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Here's a look at this week's eats. Not as many home cooked [...]

  • What I’ve Been Eating This Week Wednesday

    { 33 comments }

    Hi, thanks for the support on the Marsala Challenge competition. Remember, you can vote again on Thursday and leave another comment for another chance to win. Again, thank you! Okay, back to the regular stuff. I'm cuddled up on the couch with a fire and a sweet golden retriever laying (on the floor) next to [...]

  • I Can’t Dance

    { 37 comments }

    For my entire life (seriously) I have had this deep seated dream that one day I can be a dancer. I can see it in my head but my body just doesn't cooperate. I was resigned to the back row for jazz recitals when I was growing up and I was always the last one [...]

  • Late Visit To Lulu…After Wine…And the bright yellow pants that came home with me.

    { 29 comments }

    Lately I've gotten into a really nice weekend groove where I've had plenty of time for running errands, farmers market trips, yoga practices and most importantly...being at home where I can get things done around the house, bake, cook and relax. There has been a ton of work done to my house and yard over [...]

  • Week Wrap Up & Welcome November

    { 14 comments }

    Happy Friday. It's November 1. I cannot believe there are only two months left in this year. I welcomed November by sleeping until 7:45 and skipping early yoga and making a smoothie. Here's a look at some of the other things I've been eating this week. Another oatmeal breakfast. Sandwich and salad lunch. The treat [...]

  • Coldness, Cake and Corporate Wellness

    { 24 comments }

    It was a brisk 35ish degrees when I woke up this morning. The weather this year has been all kinds of weird. We had such a rainy and mild summer and I feel like it's going to be a cold winter ahead! According to The Old Farmer's Almanac, my inkling is correct. "Winter will be [...]

  • Oh Homeownership

    { 9 comments }

    Help! Today there has been a (gross) toilet on my front porch. And I emptied my kitchen cabinets and gave them a thorough scrubbing. Over the course of the last couple of weeks BOTH of the toilets in my house decided to quit working properly (they were ancient) and my AC died for the fifth [...]

  • Carb Me

    { 15 comments }

    Y'all...I don't know what's been up with me but I have been craving carbs something fierce over the last couple of weeks. Tomato sandwiches... Sliders... Cookies...(and one AMAZING carrot cake whoopie pie from Whole Foods on Saturday night which I devoured it its entirety while watching Mad Men). Grilled cheese with avocado and a fried [...]

  • I RX’d my first double under WOD…and it took FOREVER!

    { 32 comments }

    Exciting news on the CrossFit front. Today I RX'd my first WOD with double unders ever! It took me forever and I was the last one to finish by 5 minutes but I did it! I was really looking forward to doing this WOD. I love chippers and this looked like a great workout to [...]

  • Baking Projects + Winning Chicken Dish + Artichokes

    { 34 comments }

    It's going to be a good week. I kicked it off by looonnngggg overdo catching up with some of my dear friends with lengthy phone calls on Sunday night. I have several fun events to attend this week and I'm heading to Chicago on Friday for a girl's weekend. I've also got lots of good [...]

  • Standing in the Same Spot Two Years Later

    { 24 comments }

    It's been a rainy, cool weekend and that has felt pretty perfect for me. I have spent a lot of time in the yoga studio, coaching CrossFit and hibernating at home. On Friday afternoon I got an SOS request to help out with the yoga teacher trainees at the studio. I led them through their [...]

  • What I Love To Do

    { 31 comments }

    I have had a really nice weekend. Spring finally decided to arrive in Charlotte and it's been all blue skies and sunshine. I was able to take some space from work and spend the weekend doing things I wanted to be doing. One of my favorite things about this weekend was having long blocks of [...]

  • Breakfast for Two

    { 14 comments }

    This is such a misleading post title. I kind of feel bad about even posting it because there is no juicy gossip to be had here... Just eggs for me. And eggs for Sullie. I was feeling really over oatmeal, Greek yogurt, nut butters, etc. yesterday morning and it was the only morning of the [...]

  • Jewelry // Food // Workouts

    { 20 comments }

    Happy Wednesday! My day is off to a fabulous start. I subbed a 6:30 a.m. hot vinyasa class. Nothing brings me more joy early in the morning than helping people to start their day with a yoga practice. It's just as therapeutic for me as the teacher as it is for them. Who needs coffee [...]

  • Slowing Down

    { 26 comments }

    I'm not even a huge Beyonce fan and I have to say that her halftime performance was pretty fierce. I am parked on the couch under a blanket with a box of tissues. I have an annoying cold that is causing my nose to steadily stream. How is it possible for the human body to [...]

  • Switching Up Lunch + CrossFit Pain Frames

    { 23 comments }

    Long-term readers may remember the days of my open faced sandwich obsession. I would say that it was probably my calling card there for a while. Over time I gravitated away from sandwiches for lunch and more towards grain bowls, egg scrambles, salads and soup. A lot of this was due to becoming more aware [...]

  • Make-Up Cookies

    { 29 comments }

    I have failed you and I am sorry. I was so excited for the first yoga Monday post yesterday. I wanted to do a post-workout/run stretching video and that turned into a giant mess involving the video cutting off halfway through, a second video that I was going to merge with the first, over 200 [...]

  • Workout Motivation – A Playlist And New Music Sources

    { 25 comments }

    I don't know about you but the Olympics sure are motivating me to work extra hard in the gym. Yesterday's workout involved lots of fun with kettlebells, sled pushes and dragging a plate across the turf by walking on my hands. It was amazing and I am so sore today! I find a killer playlist [...]

  • Beach Memories

    { 20 comments }

    Good morning! I hope you are enjoying a relaxing start to your Sunday. I just inhaled an apple fritter and some scrambled eggs and I'm on my fourth cup of coffee so I'm feeling extra peppy today! :D I woke up at 6:30 this morning and there was no way I was going back to [...]

  • Vacation Workouts, Eats And Treats

    { 18 comments }

    Remember how I ended my last post saying that I was a rainy morning so I was going to visit CrossFit Fort Walton? Well, I drove over there for the 9:30 class and no one showed to teach it! There were like four of us waiting in the rain in the parking lot. Boo. There [...]

  • Feeling Supported – Opening Week!

    I'm so happy to finally check in! We survived opening day of Metro CrossFit & Training Center on Monday...and it was a HUGE success! We're offering free classes all week to anyone in the community that wants to check out our new facility as part of our preview week. Classes have been packed and the [...]

  • Early Mornings

    { 19 comments }

    I have crossed the line into full-out "go mode." Most people would say that I'm in go mode all of the time due to my seeming inability to slow down and propensity to take on as much as possible. I know that I've entered a special state of craziness when I start doing things like [...]

  • Protein, Allergies And Vitamins

    { 35 comments }

    Friday is getting soooo close - I can't wait! I have a fun weekend planned but I'll tell you more about that later. I wanted to talk about a few health/nutrition-related things today. First up, protein.  For the past couple of weeks I have had this feeling tat I need to increase my protein intake. Over [...]

  • Squats, Lunges and Cupcakes

    { 33 comments }

    Remember the workout I posted yesterday? It ended up taking me about 30 minutes total to complete with the running and CrossFit WOD and clearly it was effective because my glutes (we'll be PC here) are sore today. When girls ask me "how do I get rid of this" while pointing to their upper thighs, [...]

  • Playtime + Downtime

    { 12 comments }

    This weekend has been exactly what I needed it to be...relaxing. It's been a nice mix of playtime time with friends versus downtime tackling "operation organize my life." On Friday night I met up with some friends for dinner at 131 Main. I was coerced into ordering a Poma-tini while we waited for a table [...]

  • Busy Week Eats and Lollihop Winner

    { 3 comments }

    In case you haven't noticed, this week has been a little crazy and I have been focused on things other than the blog. Apologies. Even when I'm busy and stressed, I try my best to get good meals in. It can be a challenge because sometimes I lose my appetite when I'm stressed and the last [...]

  • Road Trip Shopping Adventures

    { 13 comments }

    Greetings from I-85! We are currently en route to Georgia for a wedding. The wedding is near the Georgia/Alabama boarder but we're stopping tonight in Athens to visit friends and enjoy a night on the town. I finished teaching for the day at 1:30 but before we hit the road lunch was a must. I [...]

  • Worn Down Wednesday

    { 20 comments }

    It's been a long day and I'm happy to finally have some down time. I just finished dinner...which I ate after 9 p.m. for the third night in a row. We eat pretty late in general but these super late dinners are not sitting well in my stomach when I get in bed and then [...]

  • Make This Lunch

    { 28 comments }

    I have been starving for the past few days. Insatiable hunger that has me waking up hungry, that makes my stomach growl for lunch by 10:30, that leaves me feeling ready for an afternoon snack just an hour after lunch and that requires a substantial dinner. This crazy hunger is nothing new…I experience it for [...]

  • Long Weekend Love

    { 15 comments }

    Ahhh...I love Sunday night that feels like Saturday. It's so nice to know I don't have to be up at 5 a.m. Monday to teach BodyPump! (And not that I don't love it, it's just nice to have a morning off!) We've done our best to make this long weekend count since we're not traveling. [...]

  • Making the Most of It

    { 12 comments }

    We had grand plans of packing yesterday afternoon but Brandon ended up at the Y and I decided to go to a hot yoga class at Y2. I have to be honest, I really wasn't feeling it...at all...but I always go on Sunday afternoons when we're in town and am pretty set in my routines. [...]
