  • Friday I’m In Love: July 4th Edition


    Happy July 4th Friday! I am sure many of you are off to the lake or the beach for the long weekend, if so have fun! We are hanging out in Charlotte because so many of our staff asked off so we couldn't add to the sub request mania but we do have plans for [...]

  • Why I Told My Yoga Class to Eat Pizza + Playlist


    I am feeling the holiday crazies something serious this year. When my editor told me my book deadline was January 5 and apologized for the holiday timeline, I didn't think much of it. Now that I'm in the moment...I have to admit that I'm dying a little. I want to be shopping, baking cookies and [...]

  • Recent Eats (All Over the Place!) + Digital Fatigue


    I hope you're all enjoying the weekend. I didn't get a chance to check in yesterday because the first copy deadline for my book is April 1 and I have been covered up trying to knock that out. I was out with a friend last night and she asked how I was doing. I replied [...]

  • Cooking, Wine, Yoga & Sullie


    This was a good weekend full of friends, downtime, puppy love, yoga and cooking. All of my favorite things. I stayed in on Friday night and cooked dinner. I had some beautiful salmon but wanted to try a new method of preparing it. I browsed through some cookbooks and then remembered I had Pinned a [...]

  • Hungry, Hungry!


    Thursday was one of those days where I was hungry all day long. Nothing satisfied me and I was hungry again an hour after eating a meal. I find the fluctuations in my appetite really interesting.   Breakfast was another "Nutty Fruity" smoothie from Berrybrook Farm. I couldn't stop thinking about how delicious the one [...]

  • The Best Way to Wrap Up the Week


    I am beyond grateful for Friday and to put this week in the books. Although it had its good moments, I cannot say this week was a very pretty one overall. A vegan whole wheat chocolate chip cookie from Earth Fare helped. Nothing about this cookie tasted vegan or whole wheat. As did spending two [...]

  • The Most Important Practice: Self-Care


    Take care of yourself so you are more able to receive. When I take care of myself — sleep, movement, space for not-doingness — then I’m better able to hear and see which way to go. You can’t be tuned in if your head and body are static with fatigue and stress. - Via Danielle [...]

  • Where Is Summer? And Scallops, CrossFit Craziness, Baking and Yogi Clothes


    Well, it's cloudy, raining and unseasonably cool for July in Charlotte again this weekend. It's a trend this summer. I'm seriously not kidding. - Rain has fallen somewhere in Mecklenburg County daily since June 23. - Since June 1, more than 11.7 inches has fallen at Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Charlotte's official measuring station. That [...]

  • Dinner at The Ocean Room at The Sanctuary


    During my stay at The Sanctuary on Kiawah Island I had the great fortune to have dinner at The Ocean Room. It's quite a special dining experience. The Ocean Room is Kiawah's upscale steakhouse and it's the only steakhouse in the country to have received Forbes 4 Star and AAA 4 Diamond ratings. What I [...]

  • Tuesday Burger Day


    Hi! I come to you after a long day involving teaching and taking on fire hot yoga, lots of desk work at Metro, 80 squats in tonight's CrossFit class and a disastrous but delicious dinner. Let's start at the beginning. Breakfast was overnight oats with Greek yogurt, rolled oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, apple, banana, apple butter and [...]

  • Front Squat Workout + Fueling The Workouts


    Hello and happy end of week...especially since it's an end of week leading into a long weekend! I have lots of updates on the food and fitness front. Let's start with fitness. I have really been digging the direction my workouts have been taking lately. I've been feeling less run and more CrossFit and yoga. [...]

  • A Bright Weekend


    I haven't had a weekend like this in a lonnnnggg time...off work at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, dinner out, Saturday yoga and farmers market followed by pool time. So nice! I went out for wine last night and loved this Slingshot Cab. The wine bar we went to was also a wine shop so we [...]

  • Eka Pada Friday


    Wow, you guys are AMAZING. I am blown away by the response and how many of you are in for the 26 acts of kindness. It's looking like we're going to have 4-5 groups of 26 and that is awesome! I cannot wait to hear about all of the things that we all go out [...]

  • Eat, Drink And Be Merry


    I did something last night that I haven't done in 10 years. (source - I was not that close to the stage.) I went to a Dave Matthews Band concert. I actually cannot believe that it's been so long since I've seen Dave because to say that I was obsessed in high school would be [...]

  • High Snackage Zone


    Thanks for all the comments on the "11 Useless Facts" post. Sometimes it's nice to mix it up with random posts like that and I enjoyed reading about your useless facts. I love it when y'all share things with me and I get to know you a little better! You know I never want this [...]

  • 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, [...]

  • Tater Turns 26


    Everyone wish Katie from Sweet Tater Blog a very happy birthday! Today is her 26th! Last night Katie hosted a girls-only get together complete with wine, champagne, cats and cupcakes. Strawberry-rhubarb pie, vegan chocolate coconut cake, vegan/gluten-free blueberry lemonade cupcakes and vegan/gluten-free strawberry cupcakes. I sampled everything but a blueberry cupcake because I just couldn't [...]

  • BYOB Sushi


    Good morning! I hope everyone's long weekend is off to a good start (and I hope you all get to enjoy a long weekend!). We kicked off our weekend with sushi and wine so I can't complain. Cyros is our favorite sushi restaurant in Charlotte. We heard that they haven't been serving alcohol recently but [...]

  • 10 Day Clean Eating Challenge


    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 [...]
