Ballet Body: Core

*Standard Running On Veggies Disclaimer: I received the DVDs for free, opinions are my own*  There was a time that I wanted to be a ballerina badly, but 10 year old Laney didn’t have the flexibility or the grace to keep that up. So when I am surrounding by Broadway dancers in Figure 4 or th[...]

Target’s Everyday Collection Campaign

It’s been awhile since I talked shop here (shop being PR and all things social media), but I couldn’t resist posting about Target’s Tweet to Runway campaign. If have watched TV in real time recently, you may have seen those crazy runway-inspired commercials for Target, which I don&[...]

Active Recovery Week

After my less than stellar workout on Monday I knew that my body was in desperate need of a week off, unfortunately, my sanity couldn’t afford that. So I decided on an active recovery week, which meant more yoga and more stretching, and less running and hard cardio. By the time Friday rolled [...]

A Blech Workout

Have you ever just had one of those days where you know you need to workout and you put it off until you are exhausted and just really don’t want to do it? That’s what yesterday was like. I hadn’t slept well the night before, it was Inauguration Day, and I had a few hours […[...]

I’ve been diligently tracking my calorie intake and burn on myfitnesspal. I’m doing it without the heart rate monitor that I am currently lusting after, so it is possible that it isn’t accurate. Anyway, a month of serious workouts with Leslie Ann, calorie tracking and upping my car[...]

Avoiding the Flu

I went full germ-a-phobe these last two weeks. I was on planes and trains, public transportation and lots of people. I was sanitizing, hand-washing and giving the old dude hacking up a storm at the airport the evil eye for not covering his mouth. I hadn’t gotten my flu shot because my local ph[...]

A Little Sappiness

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” -Jim Rohn Women’s Health posted that quote earlier today and it got me thinking about my besties. So now I give you a sappy post about how wonderful they are. We enjoy a lot of the same things…running, rea[...]

How to workout “around” the resolutioners

I applaud all of the resolutioners out there for making a commitment to getting healthy this year. I hate that they take my spin bike and treadmill and only do it until March (if they are truly in the work out spirit). Q1 (as we call it in business terms) is my most stressful time […][...]

My Handstand Problem

So we know that a goal of mine is to get better at balance poses. We also know that it has only been a few weeks since I decided to dedicate myself to these goals, but I am impatient. I’ve been using my Tara Stiles This Is Yoga: Yoga Pose Library to help me get […][...]

My Own Little Tri-Day

I find that when I am on an exercise streak there are days that I am completely indecisive and that’s what stalls me. Today, was one of those days. Friday was my off day, so I woke up knowing that I was going to spend some quality time exercising. I just didn’t know what to do. [&hellip[...]
