I have been MIA for a while on the blog, but the holidays, a move, and life gets in the way sometimes. But there is nothing better than a good reblog to get back back on the proverbial horse... My friend [and fellow Tone It Up girl] Victoria just posted a great outline of what … Continue reading REBLOG: Will Sweat For Wine – “What I Eat in a Day”
Yesterday, after a Saturday night out in DC, I was not in the capacity to go on one of my normal [read: nutty] Sunday prep days.

When I first started my calorie counting and 5 day a week workout regime over a year ago, I also started a SparkPeople account to track everything all in one place. I thought … Continue reading protein powder POWER! mmmmm…smoothies:.
After falling in love with quinoa and goat cheese recently, I was really itching to start creating recipes with both items. Then First Watch: The Daytime Cafe put a Quinoa Power Bowl on their winter menu (ummm, yum). The Power Bowl was hearty, satisfying, and definitely delicious, but it wasn't heavy. I definitely didn't feel like I had made a … Continue reading sundried tomato pesto chicken with goat cheese & quinoa:.
