Well, hey there! I’m on the cusp of week 24 in this whole growing-a-human journey, and I must say while I still have a good bit to go, time is going by FAST. It’s been a minute since I’ve given updates on what life is like right now, so heeeeeere we go! PREPARATIONS SO MANY …

Core de Force : Pregnancy Results!

Well, I DID IT! I committed to completing 60 days of the Core de Force workout program and I am feeling pretty darn good about myself. Core de Force is an MMA-inspired cardio + toning program. I streamed the workouts every day in our spare bedroom, modified the core workouts, and felt like a badass …

A Day in My Kitchen

So I’m going to take a pause from pregnancy today — things are still going great, still working out, still just a touch of acid reflux but other than that Baby H is rocking out. I wanted to share today what a typical “day in the life” looks like in my house when it comes …

What is CORE de FORCE?

I am SO PUMPED for this new program to release on OCTOBER 31! I’ve been waiting for a new Beachbody program that appeals to the masses — and I really believe THIS is it. So far, I’ve been able to try a few “sneak peek” workouts via Beachbody on Demand until the full program releases, …

The Truth about Microwaves (& other things I learned this weekend)

YIKES. Yesterday completed weekend #7 of 9 in the quest to obtain my 200 hour yoga teacher certification. But it’s way more than just learning postures & how to teach a class. It’s my monthly dose of inspiration, or thinking/looking at life in a new way, & reminding myself I don’t need to have it …

You’ve had an epic cheat day/week/month..now what?

I just got back from a 7 day vacation.. my LONGEST vacation in a very long time. We went on a cruise from Fort Lauderdale to the Bahamas, then Jamaica, then back. It was AMAZING, and exhausting, and yes.. indulgent. If you’ve never been on a cruise before, you can literally eat AS MUCH AS …

you don’t have to be known for one thing

If you knew me at all in my post college, pre-Beachbody and yoga days, you’d find me running. Not always dressed up in Valentine’s Day gear, but still– I’d be running. And I’d like to say I was one of those people who would run every day, constantly bettering their time & burning crazy calories… …
