The Weight Series – Healthy Mind, Healthy Body

Finally! The third installment of The Weight Series is here! I figured it was fitting to post this today because this week is National Eating Disorder Week. What an incredible struggle this is for so many people out there. Let’s do all we can to bring awareness to these debilitating conditions. Like me, you don’t have…

Links I Love

Every once in a while I like to share some stories, ideas, and products that I’ve come across recently. Here’s what I’m liking lately… INSPIRATION We Got This. This cause is near and dear to my heart. Alex, a former client of mine, was unexpectedly diagnosed with lung cancer last year. He’s an amazing, positive, and…

The Weight Series – Resolutions

The New Year means New Years Resolutions. Everyone’s chanting, “New Year, New You!” You’ve likely read posts online about making this year “Your Best Year Yet!” Or maybe you’ve read a recent magazine article showing you “How to Stick to your New Year’s Resolutions“. You may have written them in a journal, or posted them on Facebook, or maybe…

The Clean Slate Day 23

Another day, another kettlebell butt-kicking. Neghar Fonooni does not fool around. Day 23 kicked off my fourth week of Lean and Lovely Kettlebell programming. My husband and I have definitely been noticing some increased strength and stability. For me, coming from barbell lifts, I’ve noticed the stability a lot more than the strength. I’ve been…

The Clean Slate Day 20

Day 20 was an incredibly lazy day for me. I didn’t manage to take ANY pictures of my food and I took a nap. Which never, ever, ever happens. Okay, okay, I wasn’t really that lazy. I was able to fit in a workout (check it out below… it kicked my booty), meal prep for…

The Clean Slate Day 9

Back at it! Had a wonderful day of activity… and a haircut! I love getting my hair cut because it means I get to go down to San Diego. My hair dresser is a good friend and I am a loyal client, so I will travel any distance! If you want awesome hair, head to…

The Clean Slate Day 4

The theme of Day 4 definitely had to be exercise.  I casually agreed to visit a local crossfit that morning and then realized I also had a Lean and Lovely training day with my husband later in the morning. So I did both. And yoga in the park. Needless to say, I was very tired…

The Clean Slate Day 1

As I recap Day 1 of The Clean Slate I would like to make something known: My butt hurts. So good (bad). Thanks to yesterday’s kettlebell workout by Neghar. That stuff is no joke. I can definitely appreciate the importance of mixing up your workout “routine” with new and interesting methods and movements. I do…

The Clean Plate’s Clean Slate

Doesn’t everyone love a Clean Slate now and then? A time of renewal, motivation, and possibility does wonders for the psyche. That’s why I love the New Year. I am a planner at heart, so new year’s has always been a favorite time of mine. I relish the promise of new beginnings and re-committing to healthier…
