Indoor Cycling aka Spin Class

Last May my girlfriend Dior asked if I wanted to get my spin certification. “Why not?” I said. And so we did.  It was a day long course at Inner Fit Studio with Rachel Saey that cost $200. I wasn’t sure I would ever teach but decided it would be fun and something that I…

Running

   My first night run!  We’ve all heard about the hip. This bloomin hip! Let me tell you that I have had a series of unfortunate events over the past 9 years that have lead me to discovering when my body is truly happiest.  Yes gluten is the devil for me. No I will not…

S’more Cupcakes

Often you see “Pinterest Fail” next to a picture of something that looks nothing like what the recipe shows. In this case I have to say Pinterest I kicked your butt! These cupcakes are moist and very easy to make.  My day consisted of a full day at work. It flew by (as it does…

Tasty and perfect for this rainy cold Thursday.  Ingredients (note I used whatever I already had in the fridge….

As anyone would experience some days are easier than others.  I started reading this book two months ago: The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive…

I workout because…

Growing up we are taught to “treat others as we would like to be treated.” But I think we forget to treat ourselves as we would like others to treat us.  I had 3.5 weeks off from exercise after 2.5 months of not missing a day (ok well I missed 3 days in 2.5 months)…

Can’t Get Enough Mexican!

My go to when I’m hungry and don’t always feel like cooking is anything that comprises of taco seasoning, cilantro and corn & beans! If you have any leftover vegetables and cilantro you can whip up a delicious meal in no time! The best part is that Mexican is easily done gluten free and has…
