She Ate Her Words

So last night’s session at the gym went really, really well! I had my first two small group sessions to teach, and they were both awesome. I’m telling you, I was literally on Cloud 9 the entire time. I absolutely loved it! I actually had to chuckle to myself at one point because one of […]

Time To Kick It Into High Gear

by Courtney on January 4, 2012

So about a month ago, I was catching up on my home girl Alyssa’s blog (seriously, she’s awesome – if you’re not reading, then you totally should be!). On this particular day, Alyssa mentioned how she was going to be starting a brand new nutrition plan, courtesy of her friend, Jim White. I immediately went […]

Should I Or Shouldn’t I?

by Courtney on December 29, 2011

Oh my god. This morning, I experienced one of the most crazy awesome workouts, ever. Okay, we need to talk about this. But first, let’s backtrack…I headed to the gym this morning for my usual Thursday BodyPump class. I noticed there were about five cars in the parking lot, so I started getting nervous thinking […]

Happy Wednesday! We’re halfway there, my friends! To be totally honest, I’m actually sort of dreading today. I have at least an 11-hour work day ahead of me and a whole lotta presents that still need to be wrapped. Heck, who am I kidding…I still have presents to buy. Hopefully the day goes by pretty […]

Last night after I got off of work, I got to spend a little bit of time with the birthday boy! I got word that Jay, my brother, and my dad were all down at Wolff’s Biergarten in Albany to celebrate, and since my mom and I got out of work at a decent hour, […]

High Intensity Circuit Workout

Good morning! How’s everyone doing on this fine Tuesday morning? So, I realized last night after reading many of your comments from my marathon baking session that I never really explained to you all why my mom and I go ‘balls to the walls’ with our cookie baking every year. Basically, we just love to […]

Much Better Bottoms

Happy Wednesday! How’s everybody doing this morning? Despite the fact that 85% of my body feels like it’s been hit numerous times by a MAC truck, I’m actually doing pretty well. Not to be overly dramatic or anything, right? But to be serious, my muscles are definitely achin’ this morning. Between yesterday morning’s workout switcheroo […]

Triple Whammy

IMG_9761

Last night was a double whammy; I got to eat delicious food AND I got to hang out with Heather and Jen. Sweet! Actually, I guess you could even call it a triple whammy because I also got to see cutie-pie Benson. I couldn’t believe how much bigger he had gotten since the last time […]
