Happy Sunday! This morning started a bit earlier than normal.  I tried a new yoga class at my favorite studio, Yoga House Of Charleston. PowerHouse Conditioning was a blast! It wasn’t yoga in the traditional sense but was a combination of intense strength training, movement, and flexibility. It reminded me a lot of boot camp, […]

“Deep breath. You’re almost done! Force a long, slow breath. There is no reason to stop, if you do, you know you will wish that you hadn’t. It’s harder to get going again if you stop. Just push to the end.” That’s the conversation that goes on in my head when I am working out. […]

Another year is ending and another is beginning. I remember as a kid my mom would tell me to enjoy each moment of time because as we got older years flew by faster and faster. Back then, I looked forward to this, I wanted to get older and I wanted Christmas to end and come […]

There are important factors to consider… factors that […]

It’s been forever since I’ve put together a “Variations” post! I couldn’t put it off any longer. And I had just the idea… LUNGES! There are so many unique ways to perform a lunge that often get over looked. Lunges are great for working the thighs, butt and even abs! But let’s face it, doing […]

Dream (noun): An idea or vision that is created in your imagination and that is not real “A visionary creation of the imagination” as Webster puts is, is reason enough to push my dreams aside. For the past 5 years I have dreamed big. Dreaming of my ideal life, family, job, and self. But where […]

An Important Introduction… Yesterday morning I did something I regretted. My alarm buzzed at 5:03am to get ready for my track training with a few of my girlfriends. I got up, got dressed, ate a bite, threw on my Mizunos, and grabbed my keys. The moment I had my bundle of keys in hand (I […]

First off HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to my amazing husband! 3 years ago, I said ‘I Do’ and I’d do it again today! Okay now…  Do You Live For Applause? Every day I make an effort to do something selfish. Something just for me, and I don’t feel guilty about it… AT ALL. Yesterday, I went to […]
