Healing

Do you like Bella’s new haircut? Wait, it doesn’t look like she got a haircut? That’s because it wasn’t professional.. I did it after she got stuck in a scorpion glue trap this afternoon. I had to cut some superfluous hair to get the sticky paper off the side of her right paw- poor girl,…

Why teaching fitness is kinda like running a race

I’d say a 10k, but not quite a marathon 😉 – You have to train or practice for the main event. You need to know what you’re going to do in advance, or it can get a little messy (like the merengue I made up at 11 last night… thank goodness I remembered it today.…

Confessions of a Personal Trainer

1. I ate two brownies in my car before walking into the gym to check your food journal. 2. If you come to your appointment with your hair and makeup perfectly done, I make it my mission to have you sweat off the makeup and leave with crazy gym hair. 3. During my own workouts,…

Getting my toes wet

Last night, I did something I haven’t done in 5 weeks:   went to the gym! It felt so good to be back. I was cleared to workout again on Monday, but didn’t quite feel energized enough for a gym workout until last night. The Pilot was home, Liv had a full belly, so I…

A year ago

One of the things I always find myself doing over the holidays is thinking about where I was the year before, because it’s always different. 4 years ago, it was our first Christmas in Valdosta, where I ended up meeting some of my closest friends. It was my first year of squadron holiday parties, decorating…

My 7 Links

Morning friends! Hope you’re having a great day so far <3 Thank you so much for the kind words and congrats on our new home. Since it was a short sale, I’m still kinda shocked that it actually fell into place and worked out! I’m definitely excited to start putting it together and decorate 🙂…

This week…

1. I had another reminder that things in my brain sometimes do not translate well to real life. That would be a teff flour tortilla “pizza” with marinara, artichokes, gout gouda, oregano and… sardines. I covered the entire thing in hot sauce. And no, it wasn’t good at all. I was green in the gills…

Cutting some slack

One of the questions I get all of the time is about how I get so much done during the day. I blog 2-3 times a day (two regular posts + one family or fashion post), always had at least one other job, sometimes two –I like to work because all of my jobs don’t…

Confessions

1. I haven’t been posting my 5th meal of the day lately, because they’ve all been weird. (don’t ask) 2. 99.9% of my clothes are in the POD, and somehow this still managed to happen: What was I supposed to wear in the meantime, right? 3. I’ve gone through two boxes of Tulsi Sweet Rose…

It’s Been About a Year….

Since I’ve considered myself a *runner*. In the spring of last year, I broke up with running and bid adieu to races, structured training plans and a whole lot of pressure. I had ran two half marathons and a boatload of other races, but a few things made me realize that maybe running wasn’t my…

What I’m Thinking

-Who needs house fragrance when you have Meyer Lemon Lavender macaroons? (Keep those giveaway entries coming!) -I bought cereal, which is a rarity, because I could eat half a bowl or the entire box and feel the same. It IS delicious, though. I chose this type because it’s gluten-free and has the word “Mesa” on…
