Reframing Makes all the Difference

Hi guys! Just popping in with a tip that sometimes reframing/changing your mentality about something makes all the difference. :) I was reminded of this a few days ago and thought it might be helpful to share!

Holiday Week Food + Fitness Fun

Hi friends! Popping in for a few more highlights from this week. We’ve been having really yummy but more indulgent dinners, so I’ve been loving having huge salads for lunch – feels good to get in those veggies!

I’ve Continue Reading …

Weekend Adventures

Hey guys, and happy week leading up to Christmas! Matt and I had another nice weekend here in DC.

Friday Fun: Workouts + Food Highlights

Hi guys! Let’s start off Friday with a smile – check out Zara in her favorite new sleeping spot.

2nd Annual DC Christmas Tree Light Run

On Sunday night, my friend Sokphal and I went on our 2nd annual DC Christmas Tree Light Run! Such an awesome tradition – I highly suggest doing something like this where you live!
