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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

It’s got the perfect blend of healthy carbs and protein to fuel my muscles after tough sessions. I call it Morning Muscle, and it was […]

Lent’s Over! Gimme Bacon on my Bacon…and Brussels Sprouts!

BACON! Easter Sunday marked the official end of Lent, so I pretty much found ways to eat bacon ALL day since I had given it up for the previous 40 days. Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies…. Bacon strips with morning eggs…A couple of strips as a mid-afternoon snack. Yeah. Bacon, bacon, bacon. Dawn to dusk. #DontJudge […]

Stress, Bake, Run, Repeat…and the SWEETEST final Christmas giveaway!

Hello, Friday! You could not come soon enough. It’s been a tough week, plus this weekend is just going to be too good to wait any longer. My last 2014 half marathon, the BA Fitness Studio Christmas Party, wrapping the gifts for our Christmas Connection family on Sunday…yes, another packed but FUN weekend awaits! But […]

Today’s recipe – Nuttzo Apple Pork – is beyond easy, and a perfect healthy comfort food option as winter approaches. I whipped it up the other day after […]

Sun up to sun down: A day in the life…and another giveaway!

I don’t lead what I’d consider a riveting life, but students and readers often ask me what a typical day looks like – what and when do I eat, what and when is my exercise routine, do I watch TV or have time to read, etc. So, here is what my Monday looked like. A […]
