  • Customer Service Win + The Best Grilled Cheese Ever


    This was a working Saturday for me which I was prepared for. Unfortunately, it also ended up being stressful on the life front for a couple of reasons including my car going crazy. Car trouble is always no bueno but I am so lucky with how my situation turned out. Let’s start with breakfast. I [...]

  • Thank God For Friday


    I am so relieved to see Friday come to a close. It has been a really long week. I don’t have much going on this weekend and could not be more content. I’m kicking off the weekend on the couch with the Olympics and a bowl of ice cream with chocolate sauce and peanut butter. [...]

  • Summer Running Plans


    Happy Friday! I have to admit that my morning was a little lazier than planned. I decided to forgo early yoga in favor of taking the 7 a.m. CrossFit class at the gym…and then proceeded to sleep through that. I made it to the gym around 8:30 to teach yoga but failed on the morning [...]

  • CrossFit Endurance: Day One Eats and Downtime


    Hi everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. This update is going to have to be quick because I am on a one hour limit with Internet access and have a very early morning. Today was the first day of CrossFit Endurance training and wow…do I ever have SO much to share with you! [...]

  • Cleaning It Up + CrossFit Fun


    I’m back! It’s been a bit of a busy week around here so I have been focusing on work. I’ve been teaching a lot of yoga and we have so much going on at Metro. We’re preparing for the opening of our second location and there is so much happening. It’s so exciting and I [...]

  • Loving Lately


    Soup. Specifically Earth Fare’s Carrot Ginger. Addicted. I am so cold natured and once it gets cold out all I want is hot. Hot soup. Hot oatmeal. Hot yoga. Hot showers. M83. Brandon left this French band’s CD in my car and I am obsessed. Some of it is a little mainstream but most of [...]

  • Fat Tuesday


    Today is Fat Tuesday – the last day of Mardi Gras before Ash Wednesday kicks off the Lenten season. We had a King Cake at work today and I couldn’t believe that several of my co-workers had never heard of it before. (source) King Cake basically tastes like a giant cinnamon roll with frosting. There [...]

  • Yoga Day, Oscar Night


    I know everyone is probably sick of Oscar talk but I am so excited that Natalie Portman won Best Actress last night. Sadly, I was way too exhausted to stay up late enough to see it happen but I checked the news first thing this morning and watched her acceptance speech online. (source) Natalie Portman [...]

  • Face Plant


    Let’s address the title of this post first. This morning there was a bit of an incident involving practicing assists and my face smashing into the hardwood floor. My arms were totally bound in this pose… (source) Unfortunately, I somehow ended up face planting into the floor instead of being lifted up. My right cheekbone [...]

  • The Difference A Day Makes


    I wrapped up my second weekend of yoga teacher training this evening and it was even more incredible than the first. I think that I’ll say this after every training weekend but I am so happy that I decided to go through with it. I can’t even imagine having not done it now. I think [...]

  • Instead of…

    { 1 comment }

    The last two days have been filled with a lot of “instead of.” Let me explain… Instead of running my planned 5 miles last night, I grocery shopped, baked, cooked dinner and updated Bakin’ and Eggs. I was so tired yesterday and my muscles (especially my hips) were aching. It took a cup of Yogi [...]

  • Bulk Madness


    Happy weekend! I woke up starving Saturday morning. You will all be so proud…I mixed up breakfast a bit this weekend (no oats!). Toasted 12-grain English muffin, almond butter and Crofter’s with cantaloupe and black coffee on the side. I thought about going to yoga or running yesterday morning but I really wasn’t feeling it. [...]

  • Crazy for Kombucha


    This morning started out like most Friday mornings – with a hot vinyasa yoga class at Y2. I rarely miss this Friday morning class. I think it’s the perfect way to kick off my weekend! While I was getting ready for work I put a pot of oats on for breakfast. Today’s mix featured 1/3 [...]
