I Bought a Lululemon Bag and Now I’m Getting a Divorce.

Remember when I posted this on Instagram a couple weeks ago? Looking at the caption of the picture, well… I was half joking about the title of this post and half not. If you follow me on my Instagram, Facebook page, Twitter or just know me in the real world, you know my big news. …

One Happy Little Personal Trainer.

I’m just going to say it–In my wee old opinion, I think I was due for some awesomeness in my life lately. Between dealing with all of the “Hey, guess what, ‘I’m baaaaack, Signed, Depression” stuff taking front and center in my life, it was just time for some rainbows and sunshine. This past weekend, …

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?

You texted (those with my digits), Tweeted, Facebooked, Instagrammed, Pinterested and emailed me to inquire about my whereabouts. This …

I Got 100 Problems Because Now a Bikini Is One.

This post is late. Along with everything else in my life the past three weeks. The quick version: Work life. June is normally a rough mental month for me anyway with the anniversary of my mother’s death, but work life and things related to it that were out of my control, took me to a …
