When Life Shuts You Down (damage control included)

I haven’t worked out in 4 weeks, or if I did workout, it wasn’t a full session. I haven’t cooked or meal prepped for 3 weeks and my dishwasher didn’t get ran once. And I ate two miniature birthday cakes over the past 2 weeks. My life got crazy; my house is sold and I […]

spaghetti IIFYM

Opinion: IIFYM

A few weeks ago on my Facebook page, I asked what people would like to know more about in regards to nutrition.  One of my very disciplined and fit friends threw out the topic of IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros).  As an excited and newly certified nutrition coach, I welcomed researching this topic and […]

Calming the Calorie Count

Last year, my friend asked me to ask my boyfriend Matt, how many calories she should be eating every day.  Matt is my main squeeze but he also has his degree in Exercise Science and is a seasoned personal trainer…so I asked him.  And he basically told me that he can’t make a recommendation without knowing […]

4 Years in New York & 4 Lessons Learned

Wow, I thought, as I stirred my coffee at 6:10 am on this Saturday morning…I chuckled, thinking how I’ve changed so drastically over the past two years.  Was it REALLY 6 am when I got up on a SATURDAY?  But I smiled.  I love the peace of the morning, a cool breeze coming through my […]

This Is Why I Meal Prep

When I ran into the house yesterday, trying to change clothes, eat dinner and catch the train into NYC for class, I was never more excited to have this cheesy baked chicken breast and stew-potatoes with carrots/spinach (pictured above).  That is because I had about 20 minutes to change out from professional mindset to student […]

QUADZILLA

“Hey………………..(I hear as I walk away from the treadmill)……….HEY!…..(still not turning around)……QUADZILLA!”  I turned around.  Actually, I whipped around and looked at this guy yelling “Hey Quadzilla!” at me from his manly post on the elliptical machine.  Pretty sure my face was like this when that happened: The ensuing conversation went a little something like […]

Walking Isn’t Just For Your Mama

Good Morning!  Today is going to be a great day of football, fitness and taco chili (I had to add that in).  I’m always in a good mood after a morning walk.  Primarily because it’s just great to get out there before the world gets hectic and busy, it’s a great sense of peace and […]
