  • Thanksgiving 2014: Friends, My First Turkey, Yoga and a New Addition

    { 17 comments }

    Thanksgiving 2014 is a wrap and it was a success. I stayed here in Charlotte and celebrated the day with friends. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday to spend with my family and I always especially enjoy planning the meal and spending the day in the kitchen with my dad. It's been a little weird to [...]

  • Packing Dilemas, Workouts, Eats, Etc.

    Final preparations for my Chicago weekend are underway. Mainly focused on freaking out about what to pack. We knew the weather would be dicey with an early May trip so I'm not surprised that this is the forecast...I just have no clue what to pack. Everyone tells me it's still appropriate to wear boots in the midwest [...]

    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 a weird weekend. On Friday I was running in a tank top and crops and less than 24 hours later... It was 30 degrees and unexpectedly snowing hard along with thunder...which has been coined "thundersnow." I think we got like 2 inches in a matter of hours. It was so bizarre...snow is such a [...]

  • Switching Up Lunch + CrossFit Pain Frames

    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 [...]

    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 [...]

  • Thanksgiving 2012

    I was really undecided about what to do for Thanksgiving this year. Part of me wanted to pretend like it wasn't happening. I almost stayed in Charlotte and planned to take friends up on offers to celebrate with them but I made a last minute decision to drive to Georgia to be with my family. [...]

  • Thanksgiving and Cheesecake Torching

    Well, Thanksgiving 2011 is in the books and the feast may have been one of the best ever! I started my day with pie baking, a run and some yoga before setting up shop in the kitchen for the next five hours. I love Thanksgiving. More so than Christmas. I love that the focus is more [...]
