Nut Thins & Nuttzo! 5 Favorite Protein-Carb Combos on the Go!

I really like to eat. So much so, I can be rather hurried and sloppy about it. As evidenced by today’s dress fiasco at the office: Now you know why I prefer to wear black. It shows less stains! Fortunately, I have a Tide to Go pen on hand at all times AND the food […]

Master Trainer Travel Diaries: 3 Airports, 5 Things To Love

Does anyone need anything in or near Nashville?! Because I would happily return to the Nashville airport any day. I am quickly learning amid my master trainer travels that some airports are just better than others. And Nashville tops the list, to date. Right behind it are the Charlotte airport and Dallas, for a few […]

A Perfect Night? Chocolate Smoothies and the “Girl Power 10”

In just three weeks, these girls have stolen my heart. They are both spunky and soft spoken. Bold and reserved. Confident and uncertain. Funny and serious. They are all of these things, depending on the moment or their mood. They are all these things and more, because  they are young girls, and that’s just what […]

Gourmet Dinner by Walmart, Workouts by MacGyver

This gourmet salad was created at Walmart: No, really. It came from the land of the bargain socks and “buy 1 get 9” whatever’s. Starting with all this: I tossed it together in the kitchenette of my Homewood Suites hotel room Friday night in Lafayette, Louisiana – practicing what I preach to students and clients about […]

Food Prep Diaries and 10,000 meters

Oh my goodness. Sleeping for more than 12 hours Sunday felt glorious after the horrible airport sleepover in Dallas! It also told me my body really needed those extra hours. Sir Burpee slept just as long, meaning his sleepover at Perky Petz was just as much of a whirlwind – though far more fun than […]

Thumbs up, thumbs down: Lessons from an airport sleepover

I should have known this weekend’s planned trip to Lubbock, Texas was going to crumble into a comedy of errors when we were 30 minutes late leaving Tallahassee because “the plane is overweight, folks,” as the captain told us. The irony of the plane being overweight as I headed to a fitness training, right?! There […]

Have healthy food, will travel

Jacksonville, FL. Lubbock, TX. Lafayette, LA. Los Angeles, CA. Bowling Green, KY. So goes my travel schedule between now and July 25, thanks to fitness conferences and master trainer obligations. That’s a lot of time away from my home-prepped food. A lot of flights. A lot of airports and new cities with unfamiliar food options. […]

A Different Starting Line

Whenever I run, I am always so excited for the finish line – whether it’s an official one…  …or just the one that lands me back home after a solo morning run like the 5 miles I took today. Maybe that’s why my race times are pretty decent – the horn goes off at the […]

Operation Shredded…starts with this Egg Casserole!

Sunday! That’s food prep day, or the continuation of Saturday food prep! And this weekend I dug in and made lots of good clean eats in advance of what I am calling “Operation Shredded.” When you own a fitness studio and teach 10-12 classes a week and train clients one on one, plus juggle a […]

Workouts and Eats

Well heeeey strangers! Yes, it’s been awhile! Amid traveling for master trainings, running the studio, puppymamahood and working a full time PR job, the blog has had to take a bit of a backseat. But I was thinking, and I think part of why I haven’t posted is because I have been OVERthinking. Like, I […]
