Whoop whoop! We’re finally in the final stretch of the Summer Sweat Series and heading into the heat of July. Can you believe we’ve been sweating our faces off for almost FOUR weeks now? You guys seriously killed it this year and I’m thrilled I was able to see all of your hard work through Instagram and our FB group.

It’s like I’m a proud mama right now.

Hi! I’m back with weekend favorites and I have to apologize for missing the last two weeks. Unfortunately the internet on the cruise ship wasn’t the best so I’m sorry to leave you hangin’!

Oh by the way, I cut 9 inches off my hair. NINE INCHES. I love it and plan on going shorter next week because after that I won’t be cutting it for a very long time.

I’m back in the USA. Everything is already more expensive, especially after my run to Target yesterday. I got home, the house was a disaster and we literally had no food. I’m not sure what Tony was eating but I did find a bag full of empty Ruffles and a jar of pistachios with ONLY SHELLS in the cupboard.

Jeeze.

When I first started my blog, I had just moved to Washington D.C., was utterly confused about what to do with my life and had endless amounts of student loans. I knew that that I needed to support myself, make a decent income and be independent. So I took a job in marketing at a engineering consulting firm.

Guys, it was terrible. I mean truly awful.

If there’s one thing I’ve been hearing over and over about this year’s Summer Sweat Series, it’s about how much you’re LOVING the meal plans.

While creating the plan, I thought about a few things: 1) It needs to be as delicious and FILLING as possible, 2) There’s no fun in eating grilled chicken breasts and steamed veggies every day; and 3) let’s just EAT REAL, NUTRITIOUS FEEL-GOOD FOOD!

Hello from the beautiful Bordeaux, France countryside! Currently I’m on a cruise ship sailing around Europe and loving every second of it.

Since I’ve been traveling on and off over the past month, the Summer Sweat Series workouts that Lindsey of Nourish Move Love created have come in handy nearly every single day. They kick my ass, make me drip sweat and keep this girl happy while she tries to eat balanced on a food/wine cruise. HALPPPP.

I’m a firm believer that every BBQ or party should have at least a few healthy choices available for guests to nosh on. No one wants to show up and only be served mayo-loaded potato salad, overly salted potato chips, hot dogs, cake from the grocery store and cantaloupe that tastes like it’s out of a GMO factory.

Okay, maybe those are only the parties I’ve been to. Whomp whomp.

Good morning! I’m headed to Boston today to hang out with Sarah for a few days before we depart to Europe. Seriously feeling exciting, anxious and thankful to have this experience. I’ve always wanted to go to Europe, but even better when it’s on a small cruise ship hitting up Ireland, France, Spain and Portugal.

Bucket list item, for sure.
