Pumped Up Pumpkin Workout And Playlist!

pumpkin workout


October abruptly arrived here in North Carolina. One minute it's 90 degrees and everyone's spending their weekends out on the lake, the next minute the temperature drops 40 degrees and BAM - pumpkin spice everywhere. Now we can all transition to warm comfort food, sipping steaming beverages, spending time outside in the crisp fall weather, and having absolutely no idea how to dress appropriately when it's freezing and hot and a little chilly all in the same day slash second. I don't hate i…

Friday Favorites #38

Happy Friday! We have (almost) made it to the weekend once again. One thing I'm super excited about? A smidge of fall weather! It has been in the high 90's this week which is a little bit much for October. Got that, North Carolina? This weekend looks like it will dip down into the 70's which sounds like perfection. Once again, I'm stopping by to share some of the things that I'm loving this week. As…

High Protein Honey Almond Butter

high protein almond butter


You know what would be cool? If we could maybe add some extra hours to the day. Or if sleeping wasn't so darn important. Sleeping is pretty great so I don't want to completely eliminate it, but if we could rest for 3-4 hours and feel totally refreshed that would be fantastic. I've been holding out on you guys and enjoying this high protein almond butter for a while now. I've been looking forward to sharing it, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day to get that done. I h…

Happy Friday! I hope you're having a great week with fun plans for the weekend. If you're looking for some workout inspiration, I shared a BOSU ball full body workout earlier in the week. You can totally do the moves without a BOSU ball if you don't have one. Once again I'm stopping by to share some of my favorite things from the week. As always, I'd love to hear what things are making you smile in the comments. Thanks for stopping by. <3

BOSU Ball Full Body Workout

bosu ball full body workout


Ever since Matt gifted me a BOSU ball for my birthday I've been loving playing around with it. I should probably be clear that I ask for these gifts, he doesn't just buy me exercise equipment. I think he's always a little concerned people will think he's "that husband" that's purchasing exercise stuff as a suggestion. But if you know me or have been reading this little blog for a while, you know working out makes me super happy. That's why I've created this BOSU ball full body workout to …

Friday Favorites #36: Self Care



Happy Friday! How has your week been going? This week started off pretty rough so the theme of this week's Friday Favorites are self care related. Veterinary medicine days can be amazingly rewarding. Other times we have to do things we really don't want to do. That's why I'm such a huge believer in self care for mental and physical health. Sometimes that's yoga and green smoothies and sometimes that's cake. It's all about balance. As always I'd love to hear what things made you smile this…

Beet Cauliflower Hummus Recipe

Over the weekend I did a poll on Instastories asking if you'd rather see a workout or recipe post on the blog this week. Food was the clear winner. I aim to please, so a new recipe it is! This beet cauliflower hummus recipe makes a pretty big batch, so I've been adding it to all the things. It's packed with good-for-you ingredients including beets. Beets are awesome for athletic performance, so maybe a few servings of this hummus will boost enthusiasm for next week's workout post?!

Friday Favorites #35: Skin + Bling Care and Good Eats



Happy Friday (the 13th)! Things got hectic the last month, so I took a little break from posting last week. But I'm back! While I haven't had many posts, I do have a lot of recipes, workouts, and travel posts in the works that I'll be sharing soon. In the meantime, I'm stopping by to share some of my favorite things from the past couple weeks. As always, I'd love to hear what things are making you smile in the comments! Thanks for stopping by. <3

Friday Favorites #34: Clothes and Cake!

Despite early mornings, the view of the sunrise from the Waldorf Astoria hotel's gorgeous fitness center helped to brighten (hah) the deal.


Happy Friday! Wow, this has been a crazy and exhausting week. After work on Monday, I flew to Las Vegas for an amazing continuing education course. It was a great experience, but packed days from 6:30 am-8:30 pm. This was not your typical Vegas trip...I learned a lot, was (mostly) sober, and didn’t lose any money. How boring. :-) If you’re reading this …
