A Forbidden Journey

Last week my husband and I took a trip to Amelia Island, Florida. I had never heard of it until my mother-in-law moved there several years ago. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the island, it’s located in northern Florida and it’s practically considered Georgia. It’s tiny too- 13 miles long and 4…

Training Cherry Popped

That’s right. I’m no longer a clientless virgin. Without getting too inappropriate (am I too late??), I’ve begun training my first client at Everfit! He’s a model client because he is so motivated and willing to do anything I tell him hahaha. While he’s not new to exercise, he is new to lifting weights and…

M.I.A.

I’ve had a bad case of blogger’s block since February 4th. I’ve really struggled to think of something that was interesting enough to share. I thought about describing some of my workouts but I felt that was too boring (although, if that’s something you’d like, let me know). I thought about sharing dinner recipes but I…

The Chocolate Touch

While the gang was watching the Superbowl, I decided to do some laundry and bake. I was in the mood for chocolate but the only kind we have in the house is in the form of chips. I’d be lying if I said I’ve never eaten them straight out of the bag. Hey, desperate times…

This and That

It’s official official. I got my ACE certificate and card in the mail! Yay! I was pretty excited to see my name on that piece of paper. I plan on obtaining more certifications in different specialized areas but this will mean the most because it’s the first.  I’ve had several other exciting moments lately… Now…

ACE’d It!

I did it. I finally did it. I passed my ACE personal trainer exam!!! For those of you who have been keeping up with my blog, you know that studying for this test has been a large struggle for me. Words can’t describe the relief I feel that it’s over and that I passed. It has…

Coffee and Blogging

Wawa has decided to add lattes to their drink menu and that makes me very happy. For those of you who don’t have a Wawa in your area, I’m sorry. It’s the best. Lately I’ve been obsessed with their pumpkin spice lattes because they taste just like the ones from Starbucks and they are only $1.99….

Quote This

I’m all for motivation. When I started my blog I had a “Motivational Monday” post. I also have a Pinterest board full of quotes. Most of them are for exercise and eating healthy but not all of them. I’ll be honest, I’ve never gone right to the gym because I read a quote that motivated…

Cooking and Pinterest and Workouts…Oh My!

It feels so good to be blogging again! It’s been longer than I wanted and today I planned to write no matter what!  As you can see from my blog name, I’ve been a busy little bee. It’s been a very good busy though. Apparently I’ve been hit by some creative mojo, which comes in…

Moving Right Along

This was my last full week at home before school starts again. I managed to make the most of it by giving my kitchen a much-needed facelift. There are a few things left to complete so I’ll save my “before/after” pics for when it’s all done. This week was certainly more relaxed than last week…
