My week in pictures…

Hey Hey!! Hope everyone is having an awesome week! Can’t believe it is Thursday…another week almost over! My week has been pretty standard…training clients, working out and still getting settled into my new townhouse…all good stuff! Its already 1030 and I still need to pack for my trip to NYC this weekend, but wanted to get a quick post in before I hit the sheets…

Wednesday Eats & Workout

I ate this for lunch and again for dinner. Wish I could claim this but my sweet momma made this.

Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark

Ay yai yai…can’t stop eating these!! Mentioned these babies earlier in the week and thought I’d snap a pic to share exactly what I was talking about. Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark Squares. They only come out around the holidays every year and OMG they are addicting. I have a pretty ridiculous sweet tooth that I have to work to keep in check…


One of the joys of moving…. you find stuff like this! A scrapbook I made I don’t know how many years ago. My sister & I… sweet memories 🙂

Wednesday’s workout was a quick 20 minutes on the Stair Master at the Y and an hour hot yoga class at Charlotte Yoga to support my buddy and new yoga instructor, Kyle!

Apple & Goji Berry Oatmeal

Apple, Gojo Berry Oatmeal

Was craving oatmeal again this morning...Apple, Goji Berries, Coconut Oil & Cinnamon. Always hits the spot.

Love Grace Ginger Bomb

Love Grace Ginger Bomb

Drank this in the car on the way to my first session. The last of my Love Grace Samples that I had sent to me. The ginger in this will give ya a nice kick in the ass! So Spicy &  Loved it! I felt energized immediately after drinking this.

Chicken & kale Salad

2 stops on my break this afternoon before I boxed. Popped into Earth Fare and picked up some Chicken and this yummy Kale salad with Mandarin Oranges, walnuts & dried cranberries. Took my food over to Rush Espresso and got an Almond Milk Latte. Perfect amount of food before my boxing sesh.

Alo Awaken

Alo Awaken
 love these! Picked this up at Earth Fare, too! Aloe Vera + Wheatgrass.

Fitness Fashion

LS Fitness Fashion

Cute outfit for work today!
What I’m wearing: Pants & Tank: Lulu Lemon Shoes: New Balance Jacket:Nike

Gap Puffer

And with the jacket…I scored this Gap Puffer last season for $40. I love the deep olive color and looked so good against the yellow stripes on my Lulu Tank.

LG Washer & Dryer

My new LG W/D arrived today!! Yayyyye. These things have so many buttons on them idk what they are capable of!  Started some much needed loads of laundry right away!

Clothes Rack

Lulu in the kitchen. Where else would you hang dry your clothes at night in the winter?! lol I’ve briefly posted about this before…I love to hang dry my clothes. 1) Conserve energy 2) Preserve your clothes — color & fabric. 3) Your clothes smell super fresh & clean.

Baked Chicken & Salad

Simple dinner of Baked Chicken & Salad. One glass of wine and 3 Peppermint Bark Squares!

That’s all for me! Will try to check in from NYC this weekend! xx

Much Love,
