Tropical Mango Smoothie Bowl


Tropical Mango Smoothie Bowl

I am feeling refreshed and fulfilled after an amazing vacation in Maui. We hiked waterfalls, layed by the pool, drank champagne, enjoyed local fish and coconut ice cream, went snorkeling, and munched on island fruit. It’s always an adjustment to transition from vacay mode back to adulting. Since arriving back to Monterey, I’ve started my new position at the gym (more to come on this later if you guys are interested), received my official Precision Nutrition Certification in the mail (yup, I offer Nutrition Coaching now!), and redecorated my bedroom, all while struggling from some major jet lag. It’s always an adjustment to transition from vacay mode back to adulting. Rather than mourn the end of my trip, I decided to Read More

Protein Donut Recipe


I Made the Impossible Possible – Healthy Donut Recipe!

Who doesn’t love donuts?! Nothing baked can really replace a gooey, soft Old Fashioned glaze. However, chowing down on fried dough on a regular basis doesn’t usually mesh well with our health and fitness goals.

Stacked with protein, healthy fats, low in carbs, and sugar-free, you could literally eat these donuts for breakfast every day. Okay, you can hug me Read More

I would wake up with an acidic stomach, belly aches, and a little nausea.  No matter what I ate or did that day, it would just persist. It wasn’t until I became a Pescatarian in college that I felt a difference in my digestion. A little over a year ago I made the decision to add poultry back into my diet. I still limit the amount quite a bit because I do feel best when I stick with a vegetarian and sea food diet. Sunday I woke up with Read More




My First Vlog – Maui, a Booty Workout, & Pancakes!

Aloha! I’m in heaven enjoying a vacation in Maui with my dad and brother. Every morning I’ve gotten up early without issue (Maui is three hours behind PST) to pump out some awesome workouts before heading out for beach time, adventures, shopping, and relaxing. All of my favorite things wrapped up into one beautiful island. More of my trip to come in later blog posts!   Funny enough, though, one of the things I’m enjoying most is the extra time I have to produce content for you guys 🙂 – starting with this vlog! Which, if any of you don’t know, stands for a “video blog.” In this vlog, you’ll get a peak inside of my morning routine here in Hawaii, Read More

Wow! It has been way too long since I’ve written a blog post. As my clientele and class schedule have grown, my schedule has expanded quickly, and in turn I have neglected to post.
