  • 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. [...]

    Happy weekend! Popping in with recent eats and workouts. I’ll see you guys on the other side of the weekend. Recent Eats Lots of smoothies for breakfast.

  • I’ll Never Climb Mount Everest + Last Week’s Workouts + This Week’s Dinner Menu

    { 24 comments }

    Happy Sunday! I hope it’s as beautiful for you as it is here in Charlotte. It’s 63 and sunny and I’m going to get myself outside after I finish this post. One of my favorite Sunday activities is reading Joy the Baker’s “Let It Be Sunday” post where she compiles a weekly reading list of [...]

  • 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 [...]

  • A Boring Weekend + An Awesome Strength Workout + Weekly Workout Playlist (Best Yet!)

    { 8 comments }

    I set my alarm for 5:55 a.m. to get up and write this post before I taught at 8:15 a.m. and then had meetings…but I slept instead. I don’t know if my body is trying to normalize after the move or trying to heal or still adjusting to the time change but I have been [...]

  • 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 [...]

  • Back to Meal Planning + Last Week’s Workouts

    { 4 comments }

    I am back in Charlotte and it felt like a giant exhale to walk into my front door this afternoon. Being away, especially in times of grief/pain, definitely gives you a renewed appreciation for not only life but all the small things in life we have to be grateful for. I am really looking forward [...]

  • Weekly Meal Plan + Last Week’s Workouts + When to Skip a Run

    { 10 comments }

    Happy Sunday! I’m currently skipping my long run (the first one of half marathon training!) and writing this post instead. I planned to meet a friend for the run this morning but I had to cancel on her because I woke up with some soreness from yesterday’s 5K race at the spot where my achilles [...]

  • This Week’s Meal Plan + Last Week’s Workouts

    { 9 comments }

    Hey guys! A quick check in to share the meal plan for the week and last week’s workouts. It was so awesome last week to plan ahead of time and share it with you guys. It really kept me accountable and I only made one grocery trip the whole week. I had a crazy afternoon today [...]

  • This Week’s Menu Plan + Last Week’s Workouts

    Happy Sunday! Many of you have mentioned that you’d like to see more menu/meal plans so I decided to sit down this afternoon and actually plan out my week of meals to share with you.

    I hope everyone is having a nice Sunday. It’s 34 degrees and raining here but it makes for a cozy, productive day. It was especially nice for teaching hot yoga this morning. I made a new playlist for class. And here is the Spotify link to follow. I am really trying to embrace Spotify to [...]

  • This Week’s Workouts: CrossFit Love + Turkish Get Ups

    { 26 comments }

    Time for the weekly workout recap! Similar to recent weeks, I’ve been heavy on the CrossFit. I’m not sure what it is about CrossFit but I’m super hot and cold with it. I’ve been CrossFitting for over 2 years now and I think this may be the longest kick that I’ve been on since I [...]

  • This Week’s Workouts: I Ran 14 Miles!

    { 12 comments }

    Good morning and happy Sunday! I missed y’all yesterday but I spent Saturday afternoon sitting in front of the computer writing about the anatomy of the core muscles so I was ready for some fresh air after that. I took Sullie for a run/walk instead of blogging. One of the things I always tell friends [...]

  • Weekly Workouts: Back to Ashtanga + Last BodyPump Class

    { 12 comments }

    Time for the weekly workout recap. This is a new weekly series that I’ve started in the last couple of months. I think it’s easier to give you a holistic view of the week and how I felt throughout than to sprinkle it throughout the week. I’m kind of trying to do the same thing [...]
