Packing Food for Travel

I may be having a very new, different, scary, and exciting life very soon..   Business attire and no yoga pants.. WHO AM I?! I actually enjoyed it 😉 I traveled to Dallas/Forth Worth for a job interview a few days ago, and I have to say it went VERY well. I don’t want to say anything just yet, but the new job will involve a LOT of traveling (which I love) as well as possible (most likely) relocating to...

Chocolate Cherry Almond Protein Muffins

I feel like chocolate is so stereotypical, mostly with women. Women tend to “crave” chocolate, and I always hear them saying how they can’t live without it. Me? Eh. I could live without it. Sorry. I’d much rather have a spoon and a jar of peanut butter…to the face. Or in this case, almond butter. Chocolate did sound good though, so I combined that with the almond butter and some cherries to give it a fruity kick.   Every time I...

Vacation Mode and Recent Eats

Hello, Happy Monday! Yes, it’s happy, because I’m on summer vacation 😉 Heck yes. I leave for Dallas on Wednesday, stay there for a night (I have a job interview), come back home the next day and then fly out to Northern California for a week. I CAN’T WAIT. It will definitely be a busy week! I have already been in my vacation-mode mindset. This weekend was spent on the beach, relaxing, some workouts, and a lot of good food....

Counting Calories – Harmful or Helpful?

Counting calories always turns out to be a heated discussion. Either people freak out and claim that it’s way too obsessive, or the complete opposite. Well, I know for a fact that there are pros and cons, and what works for one person may not work for another. As with everything, right? Right. First of all, lets just get this out of the way – making assumptions based on if someone does something you don’t agree with is silly. For...

8 Signs You Need a Rest Day

I LOVE training. I truly look forward to it every day. Of course, motivation goes down sometimes, as I am only human. BUT it’s honestly very rare for me. I always make sure to take at LEAST one rest day a week, if not more. I make sure to listen to my body, when I need the rest, I rest. I’ve come up with 8 signs you may need a rest day, as these are some things I have experienced,...

Leg/Glute Workout

My absolute favorite day of the week… LEG DAY! You either dread this day, or you look forward to it. I’m one of the weird ones that looks forward to it – usually. Well today I woke up ready to kick my ass, and that I did! I actually wrote down my entire workout so I could share it with you all. I always switch it up – either a heavy day with lower reps and more rest, a lower...

Definition of a Healthy Lifestyle

  Woke up this morning ready to get the day started. On a Monday. Maybe it was the fact that I had a great Easter? Or the fact that it was actually cool out and I wanted to go for a run! Perfect since it’s the Boston Marathon today. Good luck to everyone that is running! I laced up my shoes and went for a run. I’ve actually been really enjoying morning runs lately, and have been doing them 2-3...

The Answer to Every Fitness Question

“IT DEPENDS.” -Said every trainer, ever. Being a personal trainer or simply someone who knows their stuff about fitness, you get asked a  LOT of questions about how to go about doing things fitness and nutrition-wise. “How many calories should I eat?” “What type of exercise should I do?” “How long should I work out?” “How often should I work out?” “Do I have to do cardio?” “What should my macros be?” “Should I follow x diet?” “So and so...

Banana Bread Protein Bars – {Gluten, Dairy, and Grain Free}

Banana bread. Brings me back to my childhood. I lived in the same house from when I was 2 years old, until I graduated high school. We lived on a cozy little block, with TONS of other families, and all the kids and I were really close. Every holiday season, my neighbor would bake chocolate chip banana bread fresh for the entire neighborhood. I would get so excited every time they brought it over. It was moist with just the...

Wanderlust

Well, it’s official..   I’m going to San Francisco!!! I literally haven’t been on a legit vacation in about 5 years. That’s sad, because I LOVE traveling, and I think everyone should do it more often. Now, if only I had a money tree… But really, I have such a strong urge to travel the world. I traveled to Southern California about 5years ago, and that is when I fell madly in love with the state, and vowed that I...
