The Perfect Fall Weekend

Wow, this weekend could pretty much have not been more perfect. What an awesome Halloween – and two fabulous days after! As I mentioned in my Friday post, I had a lot of different costumes for Friday. The one you did not get to see before, though, was my eveningwear: as a zombie flight attendant! Unfortunately, I did my makeup in my (very bright) bathroom… and while it looked pretty green and black and sickly to me in that mirror, {Read More}

How to Make a Healthy Pizza (Giveaway Sponsored by Krusteaz Flatbreads)

Krusteaz recently sent me some of their new flatbread mixes, and I was pumped. Flatbread is my absolute favorite kind of pizza, but I’ve never tried making it at home! I tried to plan a pizza party for some friends, but then ended up being sick for over a week and kept having to postpone. Finally, I decided that just because I was sick didn’t mean I couldn’t have pizza anyway! So last night, I treated myself to a solo pizza-and-movie {Read More}

Review: BodyArmor Super Drink

I just finished a 50 mile bike ride up and around the Colorado National Monument!!! It was a beautiful ride and just made me even more happy to live in this amazing state. (As if it’s possible for me to love Colorado even more than I already do.) I did a similar ride up and around the monument two years ago, and that was part of what made me move to Colorado, so it was really fun to come back {Read More}

Sponsored Healthy Recipe: Thai Steak Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for the Beef Checkoff. I received products to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating. When I received an opportunity to partner with the Beef Checkoff to host a party featuring a beef recipe, I was really excited. So many people think that if you want to eat healthy, you can’t eat red meat… but that’s just not true. As long as you’re choosing {Read More}

Dallas Restaurant Review: HG Sply Co

What is a healthy meal? To some people, it’s one that’s low in calories. They will eat a steady diet of Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, and Lean Cuisine, and think they’re doing something good for their body. In my opinion, that’s not always the healthiest way to go. A low calorie diet will lead to weight loss, but isn’t necessarily high in nutrients or really good for your body. Don’t get me wrong, I have been counting calories using MyFitnessPal (friend me!) {Read More}

Sponsored Review: Evolution Fresh Juices

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Millennial Central for Evolution Fresh. I received coupons for Evolution Fresh juices to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. When I’m traveling, it can be really hard to eat healthy – especially when I’m on the go. Sometimes meetings run long and I have to really rush to the airport to catch my flight home. (I think my closest call was when {Read More}

Review/Giveaway: Adora Calcium Supplements

It’s Wednesday, and for me, the day has been dragging. I feel like I need to insert some kind of “you know you’re getting older when” joke here, but what I’m finding is that 6 hours of sleep for multiple nights in a row just does not work for me. Need to remember that when I’m not going to bed when I should! When it gets to be afternoon, I don’t want to put more caffeine in my system. However, I do usually crave {Read More}

Review/Giveaway: Energems Energy Supplements

Weekend recap will be coming tomorrow (spoiler alert: tons of hiking pics, but none on a 14er. Stupid weather!), but in the meantime, I can’t get over how strange it is to be in Dallas on a Monday and working normal daytime hours! I guess I got really used to night shifts, because it felt so weird this morning to go back to my old routine of waking up at 4am and flying to Dallas before starting my workday. Never mind {Read More}

Sponsored Review: Figleaves Swimwear

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Millennial Central for I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. My DietBet has been going great so far – as I wrote on Thursday, I’ve really been sticking to it in the last week! Even leading up to the marathon I ran yesterday (race report coming), I carb loaded without overloading on calories… and post-race, I only {Read More}

Putting My Money Where My Mouth Isn’t

I’m about ten days into my DietBet, and so far, I am really loving it. I have been tracking my food intake very closely on MyFitnessPal (PS – the Windows Phone app for it rocks), and I found that ever since Friday night, it’s been kind of like my game of Don’t Break the Chain: I’m mostly hitting my calorie targets (and choosing healthy foods to help me hit them), and I want to just keep the streak going as {Read More}
