    { 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 [...]

  • Place To Place, State To State

    { 21 comments }

    This weekend has included a little bit of everything. My friend Miriam drove in from Winston Salem on Saturday for a CrossFit + lunch date. Luckily, the WOD was newbie-friendly and Miriam totally rocked it. It was three rounds of thrusters (a squat to overhead press with a barbell) and running. I did NOT rock [...]

  • Golden Bowl

    I went to college at the University of Georgia in Athens. It's pretty much the best college town ever. The downtown is walking distance from campus and full of bars, shops and great restaurants. I was first introduced to true vegetarian cuisine in Athens at The Grit. I enjoyed many delicious dinners and hungover brunches [...]

  • Girls Gone WOD + Lunch At Fern

    { 32 comments }

    Hey guys! I'm alive...just having to prioritize at the moment and work is currently ranking #1. On Monday night we had a Coach's WOD at our new location. It was our first time working out there and it was awesome! What was NOT awesome, on the other hand, was the workout that our Director of [...]

  • What The Weekend Looked Like

    { 30 comments }

    It was a low-key weekend in Charlotte and just what I needed in preparation for a busy April. Here are the highlights in photos. Saturday lunch. Trader Joe's Masala burger on an English muffin with avocado, spinach, cheddar, sprouts and ketchup. Finishing up the 7-day green smoothie challenge. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-dRbzPrhvE&feature=youtu.be Sullie gets a bath. And is [...]

  • Primary Series With The Sunrise

    { 32 comments }

    Guess who was up at 5:45 this morning to practice ashtanga for the first time since January? Primary series with the sunrise. I was very surprised to discover that my body fell back into the practice with little resistance. Yes, some of the poses didn't come as easily but overall it felt really good. For [...]

  • Peanut Butter, Coconut and Fruit Granola Bars

    It's been quite a Monday over here and I've been full-speed ahead since my feet hit the floor at 5:15 a.m. My first stop was the Y to teach 6 a.m. BodyPump and then back home to clean myself up and feed my starving belly. Strength training makes me so hungry! I got a little crazy [...]

  • Shaking

    I am happy to be sitting down right now. It's 8 a.m. and I've already done 150 dead lifts and 150 pushups. I was shaking after the workout. Ashley, Shannon and Elizabeth from Lululemon joined me bright and early at Metro to do the CrossFit workout of the day. It was 10 rounds of 15 [...]

  • Ode To The Open Faced

    { 30 comments }

    I think I need an intervention. Look what I had for lunch yesterday. An open-faced sandwich with a veggie burger. And look what I had for lunch today...an open faced sandwich but this time with an egg. I think I had this for lunch or dinner every single day this week. I feel like some [...]

  • Sometimes I Eat Croissants, Sometimes I Eat Salads

    { 23 comments }

    HAPPY FRIDAY!!! It is a beautiful day here in Charlotte. Although it's rather cold, the sun is shining and the sky is cloudless. My day is going to be pretty relaxed and low-key. I am only teaching one lunchtime yoga class and then computer work (must catch up on email), blog stuff, a Trader Joe's [...]

  • Get Strong

    Okay, you know that I sing the praises of strength training all the time. I honestly believe that it changes the shape of your body and your muscles like nothing else can. I love teaching BodyPump and strength training classes! I've been promising you guys a glimpse into how I strength train for a while [...]

  • Away We Go

    It's midnight and I have to be up at 5 a.m. to head to the airport. :shock: I couldn't leave without saying goodbye! A few updates... There will still be daily updates on PBR while I'm gone. I have four guest posters and a couple scheduled from me. I have put a LOT of hours [...]

  • Unexplained Hunger

    { 20 comments }

    I popped out of bed this morning at the early hour of 5:30 and made my way to the yoga studio. There was no class this morning but I was craving quiet time on my mat. I plugged in my iPod with a mix of some of my favorite chill songs and got to work [...]

    Hello and happy Friday (by the time most of you read this)! I hope everyone had a good week...mine seemed to fly by. Tomorrow kicks off another weekend of yoga teacher training (only three left - can't believe it) and we have it again next weekend. I'm really looking forward to having two weekends in [...]

  • BodyPump: What It Is and Why I Love It

    { 32 comments }

    I covered a BodyPump class tonight for a fellow instructor who has the plague that's going around. I was prepared for a full class and was so excited to arrive to find the gym already filling up. We ended up with around 45 participants tonight. I was surprised to see a LOT of familiar faces. [...]

  • Back on the Mat

    { 5 comments }

    I set my alarm for 5:30 this morning with plans to go to a yoga class before work. When the alarm went off I decided to sleep until 6:15 and test out my hamstring with an easy run instead.  I set out with Sullie for an easy, slow three-miler...and I'm sad to report that I [...]

  • Crazy for Kombucha

    { 5 comments }

    This morning started out like most Friday mornings - with a hot vinyasa yoga class at Y2. I rarely miss this Friday morning class. I think it's the perfect way to kick off my weekend! While I was getting ready for work I put a pot of oats on for breakfast. Today's mix featured 1/3 [...]
