Over the weekend I posted about how it was mid-60’s and sunny in CNY. Only in Syracuse is that weather followed by a blizzard 2 days later! I turned around while driving to crossfit this morning. The roads were worse than I’ve seen in a long time. So instead of turning today into an unplanned rest day, I made up a little snowed-in workout.

Earlier this year I went to visit a friend in Rochester, where I had the most amazing oatmeal cookie ice cream. Seriously, if you’re in the area stop by Moonlight Creamery–you won’t regret it!
Since that day, I’ve been on the hunt for a healthier, make-at-home version. It comes in the form of a high protein, post-workout shake. Dreams do come true! … More Oatmeal Cookie Protein Shake

Because of this, I like to make vegetable-based meals: big … More Veggie-Based Dinners
When dessert cravings come knocking, it takes a stronger mind than mine to say no. While there’s nothing wrong with a little “treat yoself” attitude from time-to-time, a daily dessert habit isn’t exactly in line with most fitness goals. For those times when you need something sweet but don’t want to kill your progress, here are … More Guilt-Free Desserts
On a cold, dark morning sometimes the call of the snooze button seems too powerful–especially if you haven’t formed a morning workout habit. I used to be an evening exerciser, but after more than 2 years of switching to morning fitness classes I could never go back! I like to get it out of the … More Transitioning to Morning Workouts
