  • Sweaty Tuesday + Really Good Recent Eats

    { 22 comments }

    Hey, hey! I had a very sweaty Tuesday. I taught hot yoga at 6 a.m., 9:15 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. and also took a class at 11:15 a.m. My 6 a.m. was hilarious...I had two people walk in at 6:30 a.m. half way through class and rolling out their mats thinking it was Monday (our [...]

  • Zoey at 7 Months + Sandwich Cravings + Homemade Dinners

    { 18 comments }

    Hi and hope Wednesday was kind to you. I had a really great day. Taught three hot yoga classes, practiced yoga, trained a client, lots of computer work and a wonderful therapy session about work/stress/chaos and work addiction...of which I am guilty and I committed to putting timelines around letting things go. I was grateful [...]

  • Perfect Pressed Wrap Tutorial

    Hi everyone! Happiest of Wednesdays. My day started with a 5:30 a.m. wake up call to teach my 6 a.m. hot vinyasa class at Charlotte Yoga. It was a SERIOUS struggle to get out of bed this morning (the time change is kicking my butt in the mornings) but the second I started class I [...]

    Thank you so much for all of your sweet messages and comments about Zoey. I promise a steady stream of updates including info on how I raise her...food schedules, house breaking, exercise, leash training, obedience, etc. Goldens are really smart dogs and do well with training at a young age so we've already started. I [...]

  • Recent Eats: Coconut Curry, Flatbread, Zuchhini Carrot Bread

    The week has been off to a delicious start over here! I did some baking on Sunday afternoon and made this zucchini carrot quick bread. I was hoping to share the recipe with you but it's not quite ready yet. I want to try it again with a few modifications and see if I can take it [...]

  • Recent (REALLY GOOD!) Eats + Rethinking Mashed Cauliflower

    { 23 comments }

    I take back all the mean things that I said about mashed cauliflower. I was too quick to judge! Back in December I made mashed cauliflower at home for the first time. The problem was that I gave it a half-hearted effort and tried to puree it in small batches in my tiny food processor. [...]

  • Recent Eats + Early Morning Workouts

    Hi and happy Wednesday! I just finished teaching my 6:30 a.m. yogis at Y2 Yoga. This is one of my favorite classes of the week. Most of the people who come to this class are getting their yoga in before they go to work and they're serious, focused and hard working! It's so special to [...]

  • Seasonal Eating + Recent Eats (And Cute Sullie!)

    { 21 comments }

    I have not been feeling super inspired when it comes to cooking lately. I think I'm just tired of cold weather foods (as I type this I have dinner in the crock pot) and I'm ready for seasonal ingredients and lighter fare. I can't wait to fire up the grill for summer veggies and burgers. [...]

  • Snow Week Eats + Earthquake!

    { 35 comments }

    Happy weekend! This was such an off week with all the snow. I didn't leave my house for almost 48 hours and almost all of my clients and classes were cancelled for the week. I was so ready to finally get out of the house and go teach on Friday afternoon. It was time. Speaking [...]

  • This Week’s Eats + That (Scary) Time I Tried Chia Pudding

    { 30 comments }

    Good morning and happy weekend! Let's take a look at this week's eats. Breakfast Let's kick this post off with the WORST idea I've had so far in 2014...chia seed pudding. I made this mix of chia seeds, almond milk, vanilla, bananas and dried cranberries and let it sit overnight. I topped it with peanut [...]

  • Time Management + This Week’s Eats

    { 9 comments }

    I am shouting a big TGIF after a pretty grueling training and teaching schedule week. I had 5:30 or 6 a.m. clients Tuesday-Friday in addition to all of my regular stuff, bringing the total number of clients trained for the week to seven (+ two cancels which almost always happens at some point ever week) [...]

  • The Meal Formula That’s Working For Me Lately

    { 18 comments }

    Good morning! It's a beautiful day here in Charlotte. I got myself out of bed and onto my yoga mat for 7:30 a.m. super flow at Y2 Yoga this morning. I'm currently enjoying a soy latte with one pump of pumpkin spice outside of Starbucks before heading to Metro CrossFit for The Burpee 350. We're [...]

  • Workouts + A New PR + Eats

    { 10 comments }

    Hi everyone! I'm currently en route to Mumford & Sons in a borrowed Honda Odyssey with seven other girls. It's a two hour drive to the concert venue so I'm trying to knock out some work since I had to leave so early today (and update you guys!) before an evening of tailgating, music and [...]

    Exciting news on the CrossFit front. Today I RX'd my first WOD with double unders ever! It took me forever and I was the last one to finish by 5 minutes but I did it! I was really looking forward to doing this WOD. I love chippers and this looked like a great workout to [...]

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

    { 19 comments }

    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 [...]

    My week has been consumed by Metro CrossFit. First, some of our coaches were out on vacation so I covered double the amount of classes that I usually do. And second, I'm in final crazy planning mode for our first anniversary throwdown and celebration on Saturday. I can't believe it's been a year since we [...]
