Blah week but the workouts are in review. post image

I must be honest.  I haven't been very motivated to workout this week.  It's kind of like I've been going through the motions.  There have been some serious highlights but for the most part I've been stuck in the funk.  On Monday, I returned to my workout roots and had a great time.  It was [...]

Go with your heart

Today has been a good day. I wasn't sure what I wanted to blog about today so I almost passed on writing a blog post today...until I had a moment when working out. I went to a cycle class today...and I didn't teach it. And you know what? It felt good. My hamstring is kind [...]

This week’s sunday set up: spring rolls, roasted chickpeas and vinegar chicken post image

Happy Sunday everyone! It's been a pretty uneventful weekend. We were supposed to go to Austin for the Fit Foodie thing but a lot of things got in the away so we had to cancel. That was a bummer because I wanted to meet Allison Sweeney. Instead, we continued on with our normal workouts. Willie [...]

Week in review: best friends, grapes and the half ironman post image

Happy Friday y'all.  I don't know about you but I'm glad it's Friday.  I've been really busy at work so life has been a bit hectic this week.  It hasn't been a bad week at all, but it hasn't been the best week of my life either...it's just a week! Yesterday I did have a [...]

Give group fitness a try.

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I'm still trying to get in the swing of things.  I don't know I just feel off this week.  I haven't been hungry and I've been a little tired.  Maybe it's because it's a million degrees outside.  All I know is, I'm just trying to stay hydrated! When I'm feeling down in [...]

Race recap: Frozen Hot Chocolate 10K – Austin post image

My best friend Melissa is a sucker for chocolate.  I told her about these races and I was pleased to see one coming to Austin so I asked her if she wanted to do a race.  Of course, she was happy to do it.  She will run for chocolate. I like running 10K because it's [...]

Running a bit behind

This past weekend put me a little behind on the food prep thing which in turn has kind of made life a little harder. This weekend I ran one of those Hot Chocolate races and it wasn't a good experience. I'll put that in a separate post for the interested parties later. But that meant [...]

Zucchini and Summer Squash Fritters post image

Every time I got on instagram someone was posting pictures of zucchini fritters.  I've never had a zucchini fritter in my life and I definitely didn't know how to make them. I thought I would give it a go on my own terms but first I needed to know the basic of a fritter. So [...]

Happy Friday everyone!  This has been the LONGEST short week of my life.  I've been finding it hard to push through this week so I'm definitely glad to have made it to Friday.  I wanted to share some of my highlights from the week.  Sadly, I don't have many HIGHlights but there are a few. [...]
