What does yoga mean to you? #ShareYourOM for National Yoga Month!

I’ll admit it. It’s been far too long since I’ve gotten my body into the Downward Dog, Warrior, Rabbit or Headstand Poses. Okay, not the Headstand–who am I kidding about that one? I think about all of this from time to time while I’m at the gym. I’m there, squatting, dead lifting, benching, curling and …

Pigs flying, hot yoga sesh & flirting with a run.

After a good year of trying, Elle from Nutritionella and I finally set concrete plans in motion to meet up. She is a fellow Fitfluential Ambassador & blogger who just so happens to live in the area, so it was necessary for us to finally hook up and do something fun! And fitness-minded of course. …

Crying in the closet & Drinking Lululemonade.

How yinz doin’? I’m writing to you from outside Washington, DC, as I’m here for the week house/cat-sitting for my sister & her hubby. A paid {she offered, soooo why not?!} week free from work and responsibilities at home and a chance to see old friends, stay in a luxurious home, pretend to be a …

Fifty Shades of My Weekend

My first race is in 12 days and I finally ran yesterday for the first time in days. DAYS! I last ran-ran on Tuesday {one day after the gym machine ninja attack–dumb, I know}, and then couldn’t attempt another run until days later on Saturday. And that was surely JUST an attempt. Even after all …

Fabulous Fit February begins!

Helloooo from the Nation’s Capital! I’m halfway through my road trip to Pittsburgh. As usual, I made a pit stop here first to visit my sister and brother-in-law. I’m happy to report that I’ve kicked off my first day of vacay and second day of Fit February by eating pretty darn healthy {at least road …

Semi-Wordless Wednesday & Happy Things.

I’m not so good at being “wordless.” Good grief–I’m an English Major! Every time I make an attempt at a Wordless Wednesday post, or my version of it–the Silent Saturday post {such as this or that}–I still end up typing too much in it. I’m trying hard today though because it’s my day off and …

Work, Veggie Curry & Missoni for Target Madness.

Hey everyone! Just a quick little catch-up post before I go back to studying. I’m doing my best to get adjusted to this working/studying/life in general balance. I don’t know people do it!! I’ve always shyed away from/been lucky not to have to juggle work and school–until now.  This is no joke! I’m so exhausted lately …

THE Dick’s Certified Fitness Trainer…for reals?

Whilst I was a bit shocked that my first day of work was scheduled to be on the Sunday season opener for the NFL season {Really? I mean, REALLY?!} AND I’d be missing my beloved Pittsburgh Steelers, from what I hear it was best that I didn’t watch it live. My heart rate would’ve been sky high and …
