Recently, I wrote about my experience with pelvic floor dysfunction. In large part, the reason I was experiencing such discomfort was because I had high tone pelvic floor, hip flexor and inner thigh muscles. While it sounds like a good thing, “high tone” means that my muscles were too tight at rest, which was causing […]
When I first started dating my husband, he would lovingly comment that my nose is always in a book. It’s true that I’ve always been a bit of a book worm. As an introvert, I could sit and read all day. I truly can’t get enough. I’ve always liked non-fiction and still do, but when […]
I eat a fairly clean diet, so the weekends are my chance to be a little adventurous with food usually by trying a new restaurant or healthy-ish food trend. This weekend, I decided I wanted a bagel. Since I went gluten-free a year ago, I haven’t had a bagel, so I did a little […]
From time to time, I stop in and post a little update on running, specifically where I am with it at any given moment in my life, because these things change. Once upon a time, I wrote more about running than I admittedly do now. Weekly posts about marathon and triathlon training were the norm. […]

These posts typically re-cap my weekend adventures from workouts to brunch and even some travel. With that in mind, I can’t say this weekend was like any other I’ve ever experienced. It may not have been the kind of weekend that would excite most people, but to me, it was not only exciting but also challenging […]
My obsession with all things barre lately is off the charts. Maybe it’s because I love how I feel so strong and energized after class at The Bar Method or maybe I just really love the grippy socks and open-back tanks. Either way, I put together this list of barre class essentials that I’m relying […]
It’s time to let you in on the secret that is my daily meditation practice. For the longest time, I struggled with making meditation a daily habit. I would stick with it for a few days, weeks or even a month and then it would just sort of fall to the wayside. It was frustrating […]
Oh you guys …. I wish I could tell you I had some epic weekend, but what I’ve been up to will have to wait until next Monday when I can actually make it official. Until then, I’ll stick with the basics, because I still managed to sneak in a few of my favorite things, […]
