My lesson of the week: When I ask all of you to challenge me on my birthday, you guys deliver! I posted photos on social media on Thursday, and said that I’d do burpees for every Like, Share and Retweet. The Likes, Shares and Retweets began immediately… and continued… and continued. 24 hours later, you guys had assigned me 932 burpees. 932! It makes me Read the rest of this entry »
IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! I’m turning 36 years old today.
Before you go rushing out to buy me flowers or gift cards, take a minute or two and give me what I really want: BURPEES.

Here’s an easy dinner idea for you. I whipped this up in Michigan, when my friend Lauren came over for dinner, and truth be told, I kinda made it up as it went along. But it ended up being a hit with Lauren, my dad, and my cousin, so… you should try it too!

Greetings from Michigan! I arrived yesterday, and I’m so excited to see snow.

Today’s blog post is brought to you by the word “Renaissance.” The word has multiple meanings. It refers to a period of cultural rebirth in European history, stretching from the 14th to 17th centuries, but it also can refer to any period of new growth or renewal of life.
One could argue that, in the past five years, I’ve experienced my own renaissance by embracing fitness and healthy eating, and taking command of my own health. In fact, I’d argue that until I was blue in the face. (And my family and friends will vouch that I’m a stubborn bastard that LOVES a good argument.)
But today’s post isn’t about my renaissance, it’s about… Read the rest of this entry »
Well, replace “did it” with “took Britney Spears’ favorite workout class” and “again” with “for the first time.”
In the Jan/Feb 2015 issue of Women’s Health Magazine, Britney Spears raves about the Read the rest of this entry »
