Start of a 3-day week

Good morning! Hope you’ve had a good and restful weekend and are ready to get back to the regular routine.

I started with a delicious cup of hazelnut coffee with cream…


And, Kashi blueberry waffles with almond butter, blackberries, and a drizzle of syrup (Just call me Kashi) 🙂


I’m off to work…lots to do there and then I teach Sculpt and Rock Bottom later this afternoon. And, I’m only working 3 days this week…I’m taking Friday off for a fun adventure with my mom, my sister, Owen, and Emma Kate- so I have to focus to get everything done in 3 days!

Have a great day!

Black and Blue Oats


Good morning!

I started today with one of my favorite bowls:

  • banana oats
  • dark chocolate chips
  • blackberries + blueberries
  • crunchy almond butter


I hope you have a great Thursday ahead….I’m rushing off to work….See you later!

Super Simple Breakfast

  • Kashi blueberry waffles

Awesome, simple breakfast.

Gotta run- I have a busy day ahead…morning training class, lunchtime presentation, and afternoon diabetes nutrition consults….+ Girls’ Night Dinner tonight.

Have a great Wednesday!!

Favorite Breakfast Sandwich


Good morning! I started my day by fueling up with my new favorite breakfast sandwich. I saw my friend Tammye yesterday and she told me she had made it, which reminded me that I needed to have it again!

  • double fiber bread, toasted
  • creamy almond butter (with sea salt – my new favorite kind)
  • Nutella (I’m almost out, so just a tiny bit)
  • sliced banana
  • sliced strawberry

Sandwich perfection.

Now, I’m off to talk about Bariatric Surgery Nutrition to the new year of dietetic interns…I’m looking forward to it!

Have a great Tuesday!

Beautiful morning


Good morning! It almost feels like fall here today…there’s a bit of a chill in the air. I love it!

Breakfast was banana oats topped with dark chocolate, strawberries, and almond butter…perfect.

Today should be a relatively calm and fun day- I have a few nutrition consults and boot camp this afternoon! I have to enjoy these next two Monday nights because in two weeks our Monday night weight loss class starts back for the fall.

How is your Monday? Have a great day!



Good morning!!

Quick and simple breakfast today: whole grain English muffin with almond butter and blackberry preserves + berries.

Does anyone else totally abuse the snooze button on your alarm clock? I have to find a way to start jumping out of bed on the first alarm. This morning, my alarm was set for 6:00 and I didn’t crawl out of bed until 6:48! I have to add- this is a lifelong pattern, so change may not even be possible at this point 🙂

What works for you?

Have a great Friday!

Energy Bowl


Good morning! After getting home late last night and getting about 5 hours of sleep…a good high-energy breakfast was definitely on the agenda. In the ” bowl”:

  • banana oats
  • dark chocolate chips
  • blueberries
  • crunchy almond butter

Perfect start to my day…which, luckily, shouldn’t be terribly mentally demanding. I have a couple of meetings and plan to spend the rest of the day in “catch-up”, planning, and continuing education mode. My CDE (Certified Diabetes Educator) credential is set to be renewed next month…and I still have quite a few hours of continuing education to catch up on.

I had a couple of questions yesterday about my Rock Bottom class, which unfortunately, I didn’t end up getting to teach (but I’m so thankful I found someone to sub for me so I could be with Anthony and his family).  Rock Bottom is basically a 30-minute strength training class that focuses on legs, abs, and core. I like to do a variety of squats, Bosu squats, lunges, walking lunges, dead lifts, “fire-walkers”, and lots of different abs/corework. Great class- and I love that it is only a quick 30 minutes!

Can’t wait to catch up with all of you later today! Hope your Wednesday is great!
