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 […]

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 […]

Morning Muscle Smoothie and the Fitness Gamble

The following post is sponsored by Blue Diamond. Bottoms up! It’s Friday, people! For the past week I have been enjoying the best smoothie right after teaching early morning classes! 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 […]

Need muscle recovery? Make these Chocolate Mint Muscle Cookies!

  I really like cookies. Yes, as much as I stick to a mostly Paleo and grain-free, low sugar eating plan, I can go to town on a really good cookie. This was the scene in our conference room at Moore Communications Group this week: Wow. So. Many. Cookies. We did a cookie exchange party […]

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 […]

Cavegirl Bakes: Quest Pumpkin S’mores Bars…and a BIG Quest Giveaway

I have a new favorite Quest bar flavor. S’Mores. People, it’s amazing. Just enough chocolate, chunks of graham cracker, marshmallow goodness to satisfy a sweet craving with ZERO guilt. It’s so good. Just 180 calories packed with protein. #boom. The Quest team sent me a box last week and it’s been a S’mores party every […]

The Country Life: Barefoot Honky Tonking and Foraging

Well another weekend is done, but my head’s still back at the previous weekend. Yes, it was that memorable! And it brought a few lessons worth sharing. The weekend started with my first ever country concert. Steph and Crystal had birthdays to celebrate, and decided the not-bad-to-look-at Jake Owen was their “date” of choice. I […]

A Week’s Worth of Whole30 Eats Looks Like…A LOT of food!

This weekend I was really feeling my food prep groove. Heading into the final 10 days of this round of Whole30, I finished making a boatload of food to get me through the week ahead. All told, it took me about 2 1/2 hours between Saturday and Sunday – and now I won’t have to […]
