Book Giveaway! The Empowered Mama by Lisa Druxman

I’m SO excited for my friend and colleague Lisa Druxman! The founder of Fit4Mom and creator of Stroller Strides, Fit4Baby, and BodyBack programs has a new book out and it’s all about keeping your sense of self while raising a family. As someone who spent the last 20 years working on building a company that would allow her to work and be there for her family, while helping other moms to the same, Lisa is a professional I’ve looked up to for years. I’m proud to call her my friend.

Although I’m not technically a full-time mom, I will be one day I think it’s ridiculously smart to listen to those who’ve come before you. Listening to and reading about the struggles moms face every day is hard. It often leaves me wondering if I’ve got what takes to do the job.

I was originally planning to give away my copy of this book after I finished reading it, but once I dove in, I realized I didn’t want to give it up. There are so many useful pages to fill out and reflect on that I feel like I will NEED this book in my life down the road, perhaps to come back to time and again.  So I’ll be buying another copy and shipping it out to one of you!

Things That Are My Jam – Thanksgiving Edition

We are back from Asia. We’re home and I’m jetlagged AF. At 1:30am I’m waxing poetic (in my head in bed) about Thanksgiving this year. [Read more…]

Hosting Holiday Dinner? These Recipes Are My Go-To!

image via

One of the most stressful holiday events can be the job of hosting Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. Having to take on cooking a huge meal, timing it all correctly, and having it actually turn out… well… the opposite of Griswold Family Turkey from Christmas Vacation is a lot. Cooking a turkey? Actually stuffing the stuffing? Yikes.

Two years ago, my man-friend and I decided to take the leap and cook our own Christmas dinner. We weren’t hosting a huge get-together thankfully – it was just us and the kids. We decided if anything went badly, we’d have steak and pumpkin pie for dinner. Turns out, from the turkey to the dressing to the gravy, everything was fantastic.

Here are the recipes we used that even we could handle. [Read more…]

The Advantages of Running on a Treadmill

Sure, we’d all love to be running effortlessly on a beach, a scenic mountain path, or through a quaint, quiet neighborhood, but sometimes all we have is the treadmill at the gym. Running indoors isn’t usually our first choice, but if it’s all you’ve got, take comfort in some of these advantages:  [Read more…]

Life Currently…

Work, travel, and the holidays. I’m pumped, y’all. I’m so excited to have received my work permit for Canada. I’ve been busy making appointments, scheduling future classes, and creating personal training marketing materials and I’m pumped about it. Although most of my work won’t be able to start until the new year because of Asia travel and heading home to Kentucky for my new nephew’s birth between the holidays, I’m excited that at least it’s allowed to start.

Speaking of travel, Fraser and I leave tomorrow for Hong Kong for the TRX Trainer Summit there. We’ll be there through the weekend and I’m pumped to get my tourist on. I’ve never been to HK and I’ve been scouring the web for places to go. If you’ve been, please give me your recommendations!

From there, we are heading to central Vietnam to finally take our honeymoon. We have a week stay in a small eco resort right on the water and we couldn’t be more pumped about not having anywhere to be.

Making: This butternut squash soup, unsuccessfully. There’s about 4 times too much cream cheese in the recipe…

Wanting: Lawmakers that actually respond to a public health crisis of having to be prepared to be shot at anywhere you go in the U.S. Solutions would be great any day now. If you’re in Virginia, New Jersey, New York, or Washington, you’d better be voting today! [Read more…]
