  • 2,000 SQUATOBER Instagram Challenge + October Workout Playlist (3+ Hours of Music!)

    { 7 comments }

    Happy October 1! The decorative pumpkins have made their way to our front porch and I baked my first pumpkin baked good of the season this morning – pumpkin muffins with pecans and chopped dates. They were delicious so I’m planning to share the recipe after I try them again with some small modifications. I’m [...]

    Thanks for sending along your good vibes after my post yesterday and I’m so glad that the gratitude meditation was well-received. Sullie is going in to see the vet today at 3:30 p.m. to have the lump checked and for her annual check up. I’ll let you know ASAP what the report is. As for [...]

  • Another Visitor + 90-Minute Workout Playlist + Last Week’s Workouts

    { 3 comments }

    All of my guests departed over the weekend. My mom left on Saturday and the girls left on Sunday. It was an amazing week but I have a renewed appreciation for quiet and cleanliness at the moment. :) I’ll be sharing a post about the second half of their visit later this week…most likely Wednesday. [...]

  • Farmers Market Inspired Menu Plan + Recent Workouts + Weekly Workout Playlist

    { 4 comments }

    Happy Sunday! I’m glad to be back in meal planning mode after a few weeks of being out of the routine. I haven’t really cooked a meal since we’ve been back since we had teacher training this weekend so I can’t wait to get in the kitchen tonight. I went to the farmers market on [...]

  • Weekend Recap + 30-Minute Treadmill Endurance Workout & Weekly Workout Playlist

    { 7 comments }

    Like I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I spent all weekend in prenatal yoga teacher training. I am going to dedicate an entire post to it later this week (so much to share!) but here is what my weekend looked like outside of training along with a recap of last week’s workouts (including an awesome 30-minute [...]

  • Boston Strong + Running Wishes + Weekly Workouts + Playlist

    { 24 comments }

    It’s Marathon Monday! I was watching a video of the elite women taking off at the starting line and I thought to myself, “I’m pretty sure that’s what I think I look like taking off for a 5K.” I can’t even imagine going out of the gate like that for a marathon. Incredible athleticism and [...]

  • Weekly Workout Playlist + Last Week’s Workouts & Running in the Rain

    { 6 comments }

    Good morning. My 6 a.m. yoga class was sloooooowwww this morning. I couldn’t figure out where everyone was until we broke for core work and I commented on the low attendance and my students reminded me about the NCAA basketball championship. Apparently most of Charlotte (and the state of NC!) stayed up late last night [...]

  • Weekend: Painting, Packing, Pups + Snow?

    { 8 comments }

    Hey, hey. It’s a rainy, cold day in Charlotte which makes for lots of productivity on my end. (source) Our weather has been truly bizarre lately. On Thursday it was 75 degrees and I was running in shorts and a tank top. Sunday we woke up to snow. Today is rainy and chilly. I feel [...]

  • A new weekly workout playlist for you + 15 of my favorite Spotify playlists + last week’s workouts

    { 7 comments }

    I spend a significant amount of time every week putting together playlists for my yoga classes. I’m a little crazy but I don’t like to use the same playlists over and over. I find that keeping my music fresh keeps the class fresh for my regular students. Also, different classes have different vibes so I [...]

  • A 92-year-old woman ran a marathon today…we gotta keep moving!

    { 9 comments }

    Hi and hope everyone has enjoyed the weekend. Read to the end of the post for an inspirational marathon story. I have two new Spotify playlists for you and the weekly workout recap. First up is a yoga playlist. Spotify kinda drives me crazy in that they don’t have a lot of the remixes of [...]

  • Fall Running Playlist

    Hey there. I was really happy to see the squat/burpee ladder workout get such great feedback. A big thanks to everyone who liked and shared on Facebook and Pinterest. I make a lot of workouts available for free so that I’ve usually used in my own training or with clients so I really appreciate the help [...]

  • lulu Staples + Workout Tunes

    { 30 comments }

    Good morning! Yesterday was completely insane…as Wednesdays usually are…so I didn’t post but there wasn’t much to share anyway. I taught an early yoga class and then spent the remainder of the day alternating between sending rapid fire e-mails, sitting in meetings and working the front desk at Metro CrossFit. Luckily, the day ended with [...]

  • Workout Motivation – A Playlist And New Music Sources

    { 25 comments }

    I don’t know about you but the Olympics sure are motivating me to work extra hard in the gym. Yesterday’s workout involved lots of fun with kettlebells, sled pushes and dragging a plate across the turf by walking on my hands. It was amazing and I am so sore today! I find a killer playlist [...]
