The Difference Between Toning Up and Gaining Muscle

Last night when I wrote about exercise truths turned myths, and how health tips are always changing, I listed the main diet and health myths that came to my mind. One of those myths could be seen as confusing, as Freya and a couple others brought to my attention. The Toning Myth: The toning myth […]

Exercise + Health Truths Turned Myths

Hi there! Today was food day at work, and I had a working meeting over lunch where lunch was provided. It was definitely a day surrounded by food. I was able to contain myself and didn’t indulge too much. I hate not feeling hungry for dinner, and tonight’s menu was a good one! Mexican black […]


Since the sun wakes up so darn late this time of year, my two work-week runs that I start around 5:30 have had to be run on the treadmill. What I really need to do is put on my layers and reflective gear and head outside anyway, but I haven’t yet gotten it out of […]

Cancel The Reservations

Evening! Boy am I going to surprise Shane tonight for dinner! Thankfully, I was able to push up my client schedule, thanks to some flexible clients, and had about 45 minutes to get everything in order.

WYSI[not]WYG + Dynamic Warmups

I’ve mentioned before that I always have dessert and/or a nighttime meal/snack a couple hours after dinner, but I should also mention that I have a snack in between each meal, too. I ate my oatmeal around 7:30 before leaving for work this morning, but then when my tummy rumbled around 10:00, I answered it […]

When Plans Change, Change Plans

First off, I would be remiss if I didn’t recognize the significance (to me, at least) of today. If you don’t feel like reading any mushy gushy lovey stuff, feel free to scroll down to the asterisks   Today is Shane and my anniversary! Three years ago, I married this man on the beaches of […]
