To say I was flattered that she was interested in writing a guest post on my blog is an understatement. From my Jawbone [...]

I woke up today at 6:30 am to head into Barry’s Bootcamp to take a class before teaching mine. I was exhausted and did not want to get up, but today is a very super important and crazy day – I’m leaving for my 10 day European vacation. I will be instagraming and on other [...]

As you all know, I love my green juice and the occasional 3-day juice cleanse. During my visits to LA, I always swing by Pressed Juicery to pick up a bottle or two. What impresses me the most with their brand is that there are so many different kinds of juices. They have 6 different [...]

Having a blog is a lot like keeping a journal. I’m thankful that I’ve remembered to include the name of the incredible pizza joint in Buenos Aires, pictures from wine country in Australia, race recaps and more. Reading this posts years later brings back joyful memories. The past year was filled with career milestones like [...]

My philosophy for managing my weight is play hard, work harder. I know it would be a lot easier to just practice good old fashioned will power, but I’m not one to turn down a free Georgetown cupcake or shot when I see one. After Thanksgiving, it seemed like all I craved was cheese, meat, [...]

I ate, I drank and now I’m dead tired. Cyber Monday must be the least productive work day on the calendar. I’m getting emails from every shopping website I’ve ever visited and lacking focus.
