Hello hello out there! Who is ready for the WEEKEND! I know today is busy busy busy as usual but at least it's a REST day! I've been doing a ton of jumping lately in my workouts combined with not enough stretching or foam rolling, so yesterday my Achilis gave a few warning twinges. It is starting to threaten me that I better back off. So yesterday I tried out the Stairmaster instead of running to see how that would feel. It felt pretty good … [Read More...]
So on Tuesday I was teaching a small group training and had three ladies show up to class. The workout was an HIIT/core focused workout and had a TON of upper body work. I was demonstrating a push up when one of the ladies said, "you make it look so easy."
Right there, I was reminded of how far I've come in my strength training journey.
I started strength training in during grad school in the winter of 2013 (2 years after I initially lost … [Read More...]
5:57AM Wake up, realize how much later it is than usual, jump out of bed and hit the ground running. 10 press ups to stretch out my back, brush my teeth, put my sunscreen moisturizer on and head downstairs.

6:30-7:10 walk Nala about 2 miles, come back and feed her. Make a hot coffee with a cap full of half and … [Read More...]

Hi Friends, happy Tuesday! Remember last week when I posted the Zucchini Noodle Casserole and I said that it was healthy because it was veggie packed, not necessarily because it was low carb. The very same day I found myself remaking it and googling "low carb … [Read More...]
We've all been there, right? We all want something at the end of the day to reward us for a job well done. Relax, unwind and satisfy that sweet tooth. It seems like after things have been going well for a while clients want to know how to stay on track at the end of the night.

Hi, Friends! First up let's do a little recap of yesterday, 2008 blog style! I want to know why I didn't think of fish tail braids earlier this summer instead of throwing my hair in a bun and calling it good when it's 100 + out...
Also, this epic egg sandwich happened with Daves Killer Bread, 1/2 slice cheddar, 1 slice uncured natural ham, 1 omega 3 egg and a smear of laughing cow. Sometimes you just gotta put an egg on it, … [Read More...]
Hi Friends! So first up on today's agenda is this delicious chocolate coconut high-protein chia pudding. I could eat this for days.... oh wait I did, I remade it twice before I could wait to photograph it!
Basically only four ingredients (plus toppings) it is so incredibly flavorful and delicious you won't know what to do with yourself or how to stop making it. I ate this for breakfast, dessert and randomly throughout the day to satisfy … [Read More...]
Hello out there! I know this title is a little weird but I had two topics on my mind: week 29's healthy habit and calorie counting pros & cons. In reality, they are absolutely connected. Some people think that calorie counting is the opposite of focusing on healthy eating. I don't think that is necessarily true, but you can decide for yourself.
Are you guys ready to continue your veggie challenge? How did breakfast go … [Read More...]
