Here’s my final Fitbloggin’ post! I had such a great time in Portland this past weekend, and it was so fun recapping my experience for you guys! The second part of Saturday started with a session called “Tricks for Snacking on the Go,” which was hosted by SOYJOY with special guest Tenley Molzahn from the Bachelor. Do you remember her from Jake’s season? It was so cool meeting Tenley in person. She was sweet and…

Hooray for trampoline workouts! I look sort of scared in the photo below, but, I assure you, I had a blast! You can see me jumping in the first few seconds of this video! Trampoline workouts are wicked fun. Lindsay and Jill agreed! Lindsay and I teamed up for a partner workout, so while one of us used the trampoline, the other did exercises on the floor and then we’d switch. It was a lot of…

Good news: I’m making progress with my sugar habit! I realize that something like this doesn’t happen overnight, but I’m starting to figure out what’s going on with my cravings and how to best deal with them. If you ask me, that’s some sweet progress! So, I think that my sugar cravings are more emotional than physical. I definitely experience physical sugar cravings and feel like a crazy person until I get my fix, but…

Good morning from the Big Apple!!! 😎 I must say, New York City is such an amazing city. I really love spending time here. I’m not sure I could live here permanently, but it’s definitely great to visit. My Sunday started with a 6-mile run through Central Park with Jess, Roni, Kath, and Caronae. I love running in new cities. It’s always so motivating and I never have trouble getting out of bed for a run when…

Newbie BlogHer advice: prepared to be overwhelmed!! BlogHer is quite overwhelming– a lot more so than I thought it would be. There’s so much to see and do, unlimited networking possibilities, and bloggers, brands, and sponsors everywhere. Holy moly! 😯 The day started with a buffet breakfast. The breakfast buffet didn’t have a ton of healthy options, but I made due. I’ll eat anything (except for Red Bull). I loaded my plate up with fresh…

Since breakfast, I’ve done a whole lot of nothing. Ok, well, that’s a total lie. I actually cleaned the entire house (including the floors), did 3 loads of laundry, and took Murphy for an hour-long walk. So, it was a productive day, but on my own time, ya know? 😉 Mid-morning, Murphy parked his little butt outside our bedroom door. He knew Mal was in there (still sleeping), so I think he started to get…
