  • Playlist + Bachelorette + Food


    I hope that you all enjoyed your weekend. The highlight of mine was definitely my presentation to the gymnasts on Saturday along with my friend Lina's bachelorette. I did nothing on Friday night. I just made the granola bars and sat on the couch with some cheese, wine and a bowl of soup. I was [...]

  • Standing in the Same Spot Two Years Later


    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 [...]

  • Pumpkin In The Morning


    Last night I wrote this whole post on 2012 and my feelings about all of the change and struggle that myself and everyone around me seem to be going through. I definitely questioned whether or not I really wanted to publish it because y'all know I have a hard time with the "putting myself out [...]

  • Listen Up


    Food has been a little boring. Peanut butter, honey and banana on a gluten-free Trader Joe's frozen waffle. I am loving using these as an alternative to toast in the morning. Thanks to whoever recommended the TJs brand. I like it better than Van's. Leftover Mexican Quinoa. I can't get enough. This stuff is so [...]

  • Wine and Waffles


    One of the things I enjoy most about training and teaching is getting to know my clients and students. It is really cool to have a group of "regulars" in my classes and I always love chatting with them before and after class. It's a great feeling to be surrounded by familiar faces and honestly, [...]

  • A (Good) Long Day


    Whew. Tuesdays nearly do me in. I'm barely holding my eyes open on the couch over here while we watch Bridesmaids and I still need to get some work done to prepare for tomorrow. Although my day was busy, it was full of activities that I love so it's all good. Alarm was set for [...]

  • Sunday on Monday


    Happy Monday! I hope everyone’s week is off to a great start! Final weekend update for you before we roll into the new week. I spent most of my Sunday at Y2 Yoga teaching the morning and afternoon 90-minute hot classes. Both were fabulous. I’m not sure what it is but some days the energy [...]

  • Manual Labor


    Tomorrow I may not be able to move. "Project Yard Overhaul" started today and included six hours of raking, bagging, ivy ripping, shrubbery cutting and more. Our back yard is really wooded and is kind of out of control. It's been a mess since we bought our house a year ago and we're determined to [...]

  • Another Weekend, Another Road Trip


    Well, our streak of weekend road trips continued last night with a drive to Atlanta. One of Brandon's college roomates is getting married today! All of our four-hour road trips are for fun activities (beach, visiting family, a wedding and next weekend - VACATION!) so it's worth the long hours in the car. And is [...]

  • One Week from Today…


    I will (hopefully, fingers crossed) be a second time marathoner! And hopefully not feel like this at the end... I can hope, right? I'm sure I will be an emotional wreck. I mean, I teared up a couple of times today during my last long run while thinking about "this time next week..." Final long [...]

  • First Chili Night of the Season


    Catching up on the weekend? On Friday I was jumping for joy about my return to running. On Saturday I announced that I’m taking on teaching more group strength classes. Today was a glorious day of nothingness. Pretty much all I accomplished was cooking, cleaning, yoga and a grocery trip. Awesome. After eight solid hours [...]

  • Weekly Menu Plan, Engagement Party and WAFFLES


    I haven't posted weekly menu plans for the last few weeks because our schedule has been crazy. It was so nice to sit down this morning and put together a well thought out menu plan and grocery list. Also, I had time to make waffles for breakfast and pita bread for the week. Ahh...so relaxing! [...]

  • Dragon Fruit


    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 [...]
