Happy New Year!! I am stoked for 2014… mainly because I hate odd numbers and writing 2013 just never came easily. Okay, I am pretty stoked for a new year of goals, accomplishments and challenges too! But I don’t want to harp on 2013… while many bloggers are recapping the year, I am ready to […]

This has been one of the best weeks in a very long time! It’s been all about recharging, recovering and refocusing. While I have missed teaching my amazing boot campers, and spending time on my computer (yes, I really do love blogging away), I needed this week. Dan and I needed this week as a […]

Merry Christmas!!! At this particular moment in time, there is a good chance I am singing Christmas carols with my family while sipping a mimosa…  and enjoying each moment I am given with them while wishing those that couldn’t be here with us are having a day filled with love, joy, and togetherness. One thing […]

My niece is 2.5 going on 15 but one thing that blows my mind is the joy she finds in the smallest of things. Come Christmas morning she is going to be completely overwhelmed and excited by all the toys delivered from Santa, so we decided to give her our presents this past weekend. Yes, […]

Good Morning! It’s hard to believe that Christmas is just days away. While you might have a chill in the air or even snow on the ground, Charleston is feeling more like late spring. Sure we’re known for our mild winters, but with temperatures reaching 80-degrees yesterday, this is not normal. It fact, it’s a […]

You know those stories you hear of grandfathers living to be 95 years old after a life filled with booze, cigs, and fried food? Well, that’s Santa Clause (except instead of booze and cigarettes, it’s cookies and milk). How the man has managed to live centuries while keeping up with his lifestyle is beyond me. […]

On The 12th Day Of Christmas My Trainer Gave To Me…  12 Calorie Scorching Workouts!  I know the 12 days of Christmas don’t officially kick off until Christmas Day, however considering all the food and wine I consumed this weekend, I think it’s excusable to present the 12 Calorie Scorching Workouts today. Do you agree? […]

*Note: I know that yesterday I did a post on Damaging Admissions of Trainers, so today’s title might sound repetitive however it’s not. This is a part of my monthly “Confessions of A Trainer” series which I hope you enjoy! I do recommend check out yesterdays post too!  Can you believe that as of yesterday […]

This blog post has been on my mind for over a week now! I’m excited to finally get the chance to share it with you. Last week I was doing what most everyone else was, running errands to prepare for the holidays. And, like many of us, I found myself standing in line at Target. […]

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! While it’s important to be thankful year round, let’s face it… life get’s busy, things get taken for granted and we’re human. We don’t say Thank You or I love you nearly enough. At least I don’t. Having a special day like today helps to put things into […]

No, not your husband… Though I am thankful for my very handsome (on the inside & out) hubs Not your mom or dad. Not your kid(s). YOU.  This is the week to give thanks for all of our blessings, and I’m sorry, no matter how tough life is right now, we all have blessings to […]

Happy Sunday! My morning started off perfectly with fresh baked Thanksgiving bread. Thanksgiving bread? Never heard of it? I made it up yesterday while playing around in the kitchen. It includes all of my favorite flavors of the month: cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, cranberries and even sweet potatoes. Oh and it’s gluten-free, vegan, packed with gut […]

TGIF! In exactly a week I’ll be singing holiday songs and getting into the Christmas spirit! But not until the day after Thanksgiving. That’s my rule. In fact, one of the radio stations I listen to started playing holiday music about 2 weeks ago, but I’ve boycotted… I refuse to listen to it that. Its […]

Let the chaos of the holidays begin! In one week families will be coming together, excess food will be set out to help keep us occupied as we sit down and enjoy one another’s company, and then the hustle and bustle of the most wonderful time of the year will be in full swing. Life […]
