  • A Small Change for Earth Day + Recent Eats

    { 12 comments }

    Hi and Happy Earth Day! In the spirit of Earth Day, I wanted to talk about one small change that I've made recently to help the planet. I have switched over the French press coffee. I have read so much about how much waste single serve coffee makers are creating with all of their various [...]

  • Thank You…Dinners this Week…And Remember Handheld CD players!?

    { 39 comments }

    Hi. And where do I even begin to thank you for the incredible support you showed on my last post? It was amazing and touching to hear from every single one of you that commented via Facebook, Instagram, email or on the post. I will respond to all of the comments because each one was [...]

  • 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 [...]

  • Friday Stuff + Recent Eats

    { 20 comments }

    Happy Friday! I had a really great week that was full of teaching and training. I onboarded a new PT client that I'm really excited about working with. I only take on new a client every six months or so and I always make sure that their goals/motivation/current life stage matches up with what I'm [...]

  • 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 [...]

  • Weekend + Recent Eats

    { 10 comments }

    Happy Monday! I kicked my day off bright and early with four clients in a row at the gym starting at 5:30 a.m. Three training clients and one yoga private. Everyone asked how my weekend was and it kinda felt like it never even happened...it just passed in a blur. I stayed home on Friday [...]

  • Recent Eats + Puppy Updates

    { 10 comments }

    Thank you so much for all of your sweet messages and comments about Zoey. I promise a steady stream of updates including info on how I raise her...food schedules, house breaking, exercise, leash training, obedience, etc. Goldens are really smart dogs and do well with training at a young age so we've already started. I [...]

  • Lately: Pumpkin, Yoga & Game Day

    { 4 comments }

    Happy Saturday! After a nearly hour and a half weather delay, I'm parked on the couch cheering on the Dawgs! It's game day and it's always a stressful game when we're playing South Carolina. I wore myself earlier today so couch time is welcome. I did my long run early this morning, taught hot yoga, [...]

  • CLT Eats: Fahrenheit & littleSpoon

    { 19 comments }

    It's only Wednesday but I've already hit up two new Charlotte restaurants this week. Before I share my experiences with these restaurants let me give you my take on the Charlotte restaurant scene as a whole...I do not love it. We have a ton of restaurants in Charlotte and while I feel grateful for the [...]

  • Recent Eats: Beach Edition (so much good food!)

    { 10 comments }

    Beach eats have been nothing but good! I have been fed so many delicious things here... The first night we had grilled flank steak, asparagus, salad, roasted potatoes and quiche. What a feast! Another dinner was pasta with sauteed shrimp and scallops with salad and green beans. These sea scallops were  so good. We went out [...]

  • Recent (REALLY GOOD!) Eats + Rethinking Mashed Cauliflower

    { 23 comments }

    I take back all the mean things that I said about mashed cauliflower. I was too quick to judge! Back in December I made mashed cauliflower at home for the first time. The problem was that I gave it a half-hearted effort and tried to puree it in small batches in my tiny food processor. [...]

  • Weekend & Winners

    { 23 comments }

    My weekend was nothing too exciting but perfect for me. I'll give you one guess what the theme of it was... Yep, yoga. I am assisting with 200-hour teacher training this winter/spring and we had a teacher training weekend scheduled. (They complete the 200 hours over the course of eight weekends and assisting/observation work done [...]

  • Week of Eats + A Must-Have Nail Color

    { 29 comments }

    I am happy that you all enjoyed the Yogi Clothing giveaway post and yesterday's video blog. I especially appreciate the support on the ideal weight chat. It's great to hear others in agreement. I'll try to do the video blog thing at least once a month and let y'all endure my southern drawl. ;) Lots [...]

  • Party Weekend + Winners

    { 13 comments }

    Hi! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Today I want to share some weekend photos with you and then announce the winners of my most recent giveaway. Saturday night we had our holiday staff party for Y2 Yoga. I spent half the day at the mall making returns and checking out the after holiday [...]

  • Friday Nails, Cupcakes & Steak

    { 14 comments }

    Happy Friday! Mine started pre-5 a.m. which is brutal on a Friday but worth it to train a great client at 5:30 a.m. After that I taught a yoga class, did some treadmill interval work and then taught another lunch yoga class at Om Yoga. Backing up to Thursday night...I made spinach and artichoke stuff [...]

  • 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 [...]

  • Labor day weekend: from housework to yoga inversions to I am so not meant for clubbing…

    { 6 comments }

    My Labor Day weekend hasn't provided much of a break from laboring but it sure has been productive. And there has been a bit of fun involved so I can't complain. Housework has continued in full force and the following has been accomplished... - HVAC repaired - Installation of two new toilets - New light [...]

  • My First CrossFit Injury (Totally My Fault)

    { 64 comments }

    Well, I sustained my first CrossFit injury last night...but it was totally my fault for not paying attention. The rig was crowded and I was so amped up to start the WOD that I didn't even pay attention to where I set myself up to do my pullups, which were the first movement of the [...]

  • 5 Vacation Highlights: 30A, Steak & Cake, Yoga and More!

    { 25 comments }

    It was so nice to receive your positive feedback on yesterday's post. I didn't intend to write it. I actually sat down to write a normal post recapping what I was doing on vacation and then the words just started flowing. I think that's exactly why that post worked though. It wasn't planned but instead [...]

  • I Baked A Cake With Green Frosting

    { 21 comments }

    Go figure that the one day that I can sleep until 8 a.m. I wake up at 6:30. Despite not going to sleep until almost 12:30 on Saturday night, I was wide awake early on Sunday morning. The next thing I knew I was making a pot of coffee and pre-heating the oven to bake [...]

  • Sunday Perfection

    { 28 comments }

    Here's what Sunday at my grandmother's house looks like... Sleep until 9 a.m. Stumble (literally) out of bed and downstairs to make coffee and maple oatmeal scones for breakfast. Thanks to my sleep-induced stupor and an incorrect recipe, scones turn out a huge failure. (Look how flat the first batch was on plate above!) Perfectionism [...]

  • Meat and Taters

    { 10 comments }

    There's a chance that I may not be able to lift my arms above my head tomorrow. No, really. I got my booty handed to me this morning. One minute I was shadowing another personal trainer at the gym and the next thing I knew I was doing the workout with the client. When he [...]

  • Braving the Storm

    { 16 comments }

    I'm late getting to my blog tonight because I've been working on a fun project for lululemon. Look out for an update with all the details Wednesday! I got yesterday's blog post done early so that Brandon and I could finally spend some time together after I spent all weekend in yoga teacher training. We [...]

  • Avocado Love

    { 14 comments }

    I didn't blog last night. I sat down to start a post and found myself without inspiration. Rather than give you guys a lackluster post, I took the night off. Instead of blogging, I headed to bed to unwind with a book. I am enjoying Prep. What can I say? Sometimes I it's nice to [...]

  • Dragon Fruit

    { 9 comments }

    Sunday was a day full of adventure. (Catch up on what happened Saturday night - including my car break in - here.) The adventure started when my mom announced that she picked up a funny looking fruit at the Dekalb Farmer's Market. Enter dragon fruit. We Googled it and found that it's native to Mexico [...]

  • A Random Sunday

    { 4 comments }

    Today was a bit random. Especially in the food department. I really only had one true meal and the rest of the day was spent snacking/grazing. This is really unlike me - I am a scheduled, three square meals kind of girl. But it worked today so I just went with it! I started out [...]
