Kentucky in 2 Weeks!

I’ll be spending a few days in Louisville in a couple weeks! Excited to teach a TRX course, see my people, and hopefully score some of the warm weather they’ve been having. See y’all soon! Who wants to go play in the park(s) with me?!

Daylight Savings This Weekend:

I saw a friend post something about it being this weekend & I’m so ready for Spring I immediately thought, “DON’T F*** WITH ME ON THIS.” But then I looked it up & it’s true! Spring forward this Sunday! #hallelujah

Photos of the D.C. trip w/ my Momma

I’ll post more soon, but I had the best time with my mom last week in D.C.! Five days with just the two of us was awesome and not something we’ve done for a while now.

Flash Fit Club Group Session:

I’m stoked to start working out with some new peeps next week! Starting on Monday, whoever’s joined either of my TRX online Fit Clubs will get weekly check-in emails and tips from me for the next month. We’ll all start the 4 week session together for a little group support. If you want in, sign up here by Monday morning. (It’s $79 but you can save 15% by using the coupon code below.)

Walking Against Humanity:

A step-tracking app that offers the same great shock value as the Cards Against Humanity game. It’s hilarious and you can connect with friends and talk trash about your steps for the day. So fun!

Workout Playlist Inspiration

large-2image via

Need some tunes for your next workout playlist? Here’s some new (and not-so-new) music to pick and choose from: Two for warm up music at the beginning, two for cool-down music at the end, a bunch of fun beats in the middle. Just a heads up: Some of these have explicit lyrics. Might wanna throw on the ol’ ear buds if you’re around sensitive ears. ; )

Looking for something else? All my playlists are on Spotify and are (usually) an hour long.

In other news: FitwithFlash now has its own Facebook page.

Tango and I take a 45 minute walk every day (unless the temperature is -25, then we take a 2 minute walk) and I listen to any number of podcasts. Podcasts have literally taken over from music in my life the past year and a half. I listen to them while walking, running, driving, and now during my workouts. There’s so much GOOD content out there and it’s way better than listening to any radio station. I pick up new ones all the time. Here are my latest faves I want y’all to know about: [Read more…]

Things (& Links) That Are My Jam Right Now…

{Things That Are Currently My Jam}

IMG_5748

Kentucky in the Summer. Yes it’s hot and humid, but summer will gone before we know it so I’m taking full advantage.

Louisville Parks. We’ve been to either Cherokee, Seneca, or The Parklands every day since I’ve been back. I’m not mad about it. Neither is Tango…

Stranger Things. Mom and I watched all 8 episodes last week! LOVED it.

Bug Spray. Mosquitos are everywhere here. Don’t give me the all-natural spray… I need some napalm to take these bitches out.

Meeting up w/ friends for walks, runs, bike rides, or workouts. I wrote this post about alternate ways to socialize (other than meeting for meals/drinks) and have been trying to put that into practice more often. (Aside from when people want to meet at my favorite restaurants…)

Steel City Pops. You guys. There’s a popsicle store here.

All the kiddos. Appx. 1,000 friends of mine had kids since I left last year. It’s fun meeting up with my buds to workout or play outside with their little ones and I’m loving all the different parenting styles. It was hilarious seeing my friend Jess yelling “What the hell’s the matter with you?!” as she watched her youngest (of 4) bypass their water bottle and the water fountain to drink out the communal dog bowl on the ground at the playground.

Making a dent my Kentucky Summer Wish List. I’ve marked off the things I’ve done so far from this post.

Labor Day Plans. I’m traveling the rest of my weekends that I’m in Kentucky, but I’m home all holiday weekend long. We’re hitting a Canoe/Kayak/SUP Demo on the lake, heading to the YUM Center to cheer on the UofL Women’s Volleyball team, riding bikes in the Mayor’s Hike, Bike, and Paddle event, and who knows what else. I’m stoked.

Academy Award Nominees: Best Picture

> on October 19, 2009 in Santa Clarita, California.
I LOVE the Academy Awards. I love the entire energy around this awards show. It’s glamorous, it’s classic. It is my jam. What’s also my jam is trying to pick the winners before the show starts. Every year I try to watch every movie nominated for Best Picture, but I have yet to do this. Then a few years ago they went and opened up the category to more movies. Like watching 5 wasn’t hard enough? I’ve managed to see 5 out of the 9 that are up for the highest honor this year.  Here’s what I thought about the nominees I saw, including my pick for Best Picture. [Read more…]
