Somebody got down ‘n dirty in the kitchen last night!! I’ve had the urge to do some baking all week long, and last night I finally had the opportunity to park myself in the kitchen and get to work. I had two ingredients that had to be used: bananas (‘cuz they’re nice ‘n ripe!) and […]

Good Mornin’ Folks! Since I took an impromptu day off from the gym yesterday, and won’t have time to make it today after work, I made it a priority to get my booty outta bed bright and early this morning for a date…with my tv. I started off with Cardio Sculpt by Jeanette Jennings from […]

I’ve determined today that I just am not good at adjusting to when my workout plans change. I was originally planning on hitting up the gym after work today, but I ended up going to visit my grandma in her new apartment first. By the time I left grandma’s, it was almost 5:00, and I […]

Tonight, Jay and I have a fun, yummy dinner planned, but it doesn’t involve one stitch of veggies, so I wanted to make sure I could get in a good amount of ‘em at lunch. Celery + Carrot Sticks Paired with my favorite Tomato & Basil Hommus. I also prepared a simple turkey + veggie […]

It’s another “blah” morning here in Upstate…making it very difficult for me to want to get out of bed this morning. Why is it that my bed always feels a million times comfier when I hear rain pitter-pattering outside my window??? Despite it being a dreary morning, it’s actually quite muggy, which left me craving […]

Ahhhhhhh…. That’s the sound of me finally sitting down on my comfy couch after a long, dreary, rainy Monday. I’d been looking forward to parking myself on this bad boy ever since I left the house for work this morning. There’s just something about a rainy day + my comfy sweats and cozy couch. Tonight’s […]

Rollin’ With Some Yoga

Why do I not do yoga more often??? It’s such a great way to start off your day! While it took me two rounds of hitting the snooze button to actually get out of bed, I knew I’d feel a lot better if I just got up and DID IT. So I rolled myself out […]
