Been Waiting To Tell You This…

Hey guys and gals! Happy Monday to YOU! Ohhhh man, I have exciting stuff to share with you today!

I hope everyone had a kick-butt weekend…I know I sure did. I honestly have so much to fill you guys in on, but for the sake of my sanity AND for bombarding you with a ton of Blend Retreat recaps all at once, I think I’m going to spread them out a bit during the week.


I only have two days until I’m back on the road again, and am feeling a bit crazed at the whole re-organizing life thing, so please bear with me if I start to sound a little nutty.

Speaking of bearing with me…this whole posting thing. Yep, I’m still having troubles uploading any sort of blog posts with photos attached to them (which is basically ALL of them) and I’m completely baffled. So is my tech guru. So if you’ve noticed some random “test” posts, or the fact that my posts may appear at odd times, well, that’s why. Ohhh, the joys of technology, right? Winking smile

Keep your fingers crossed that something magically makes everything all better soon!



Since I was gone all weekend, that meant that there was no grocery shopping done, which means that it was slim pickins’ around these parts (it’s like pulling teeth to get hubs to go grocery shopping WITH me…I definitely didn’t expect him to go it alone). Thankfully, there were still a few bananas left around, so I managed to put together a little cereal combo.


It wasn’t the most exciting, but it did the trick.


And I was so happy to have my own mug of coffee again. Love.this.stuff.



Okay, I’ve had ants in my pants all morning waiting to tell you this news…eeeeek!

Remember a little over two months ago when I found out I was nominated for Fitness Magazine’s Fitterati “Best Personal Trainer Blog?”

Well, for the past week or so, I’ve been keeping a secret. But today, I can finally share…


The 2012 Fitterati Blogger Awards were announced today, and STSL was given the Editor’s Pick. Smile

I have the honor of being right alongside with one of my fellow favorite trainers, Gina. Congrats, girl!


I can’t even begin to tell you all how honored I feel to have received such an award. With all of the changes I’ve made this past year, it hasn’t always been easy, but I knew it’d be worth it…and it most certainly was!

Thank you all for continuing to support me on the way. It honestly means more than you can imagine.

Now, I hate to share and run…but it’s time to head back to the work thang!

    Congrats!! That is amazing. My hubby will only go get more than milk and juice if I have a specific item I need him to get. I guess it is a man thing – they do not want to go through the store and get a whole bunch of stuff.

    From your posts it sounds like you had a great time over the weekend! That is exciting and I am sure it was quite the experience
