Hello! We have been working on a little refresh to this site and a little adjusting to go along with it. During the process, I realized the last time I introduced myself or crafted a page about myself was way back in 2014. That was FIVE years ago! Since that time I've had two boys enter … Read more about Well, Hello!
I've loved all things health and fitness for a mighty long time. It was reinforced watching my parents battle thier own health issues that affected their quality of life. That helped me move from exercising for the outward results (like those skinny jeans) and focusing on all of the health … Read more about Growing Into Wellness
I'm coming clean here. In fact, I'm already getting a bit squirmy thinking about hitting the "submit" button. Recently, I was involved in a photo session for a fitness studio where I love to teach. (Check out WestCoastWorkout for a great experience!) This is out of my comfort zone to begin … Read more about Let’s Talk Body Confidence
This is not a new post. In fact, it's an update on a post I wrote a little over a year ago. One thing I try to do here is keep it real. I hope you know it's more "what you see is what you get" than "I've got this thing all figured out" and everything is as perfect as a highlight reel on social … Read more about Confession #1: I am an Emotional Eater
I didn’t want to fill this space with a constant barrage of Whole30 posts, but I think a little check in is in order. I have had so many people ask me about it, ask me how I’m doing and how it’s going, I’d thought I’d share my two cents so far. I’m on day 22 and will be only staying this course … Read more about My Whole30 Experience . . .22 days in
There is SO much hype out there about self-care these days. It seems to be one of the new, trendy things we have to put on our "to do" list. OR it sounds kinda "high falutin" and what those "ladies who lunch" do that the rest of us might feel too guilty about indulging in. But I'm here to share with … Read more about Self Care IS a Thing. . . and may not be what you think
Here we are, friends. At the end of a year and the beginning of a new one. As I sit here watching the news reports on the festivities and as 2/3 of my boys are in New Orleans preparing to cheer on the Dawgs in the Sugar Bowl, I confess I am quite content to sit right here in a quiet house … Read more about SIMPLIFY IN 2019 . . .

Since I am not on my regular posting schedule, today may seem a little discombulated as I have two completely different topics to share. You know if it's on my mind then you'll likely be reading about it. You know I'm a big fan of enjoying a Big Ol' Salad - just about every day. It's a … Read more about A Festive Salad and a little encouragement if it’s not a festive time
All this time I've been giving fitness and nutrition advice I've tried to write to everyone and be cognizant of so many different schedules and seasons of life. I've wanted to give value to you whether you are a young mom with those children all over the place, one who works a full time or part … Read more about I’m Just Like You . . . so let’s make a plan
You know I love a Big Ol' Salad! The other day I posted a salad inspiration on my Insta Stories and later in the day made my version. I've been eating out of that bowl of salad all week and it hasn't gotten old yet. It is the perfect combo on good greens, some fiber, crunchiness, sweetness, … Read more about Make this Fall Salad Today!
I can see it happening already. It begins now around September. It seems to get earlier and earlier each year. I say September because that's when the Halloween decorations start popping up in stores AND when everyone decides that all sorts of foods and drinks simply must be pumpkin flavored. I … Read more about Don’t Let those Pumpkin Lattes Get You!
