I feel as though I’ve been waiting around permanently for humid summer evenings. And my goodness are they here. Smoky BBQ meats, new juicy watermelon, and frozen yogurt has taken over my life and I couldn’t be more ecstatic about any of it.

As you’ve probably seen via my Instagram , I’ve been taking a few summer trips. On the way, I discover myself eating dinner out and taking pleasure in food in accordance with each state’s culture. Often times, I’ll order some kind of chopped salad; each one becoming more unique than the last. In New Mexico,Read more

Hello you lovely souls. I’m seated in a beautiful, cozy king bed writing for you from Hilton Head Health , an exercise and wellness holiday resort in Hilton Mind, SC. This past week continues to be so refreshing for me in more methods than I can fathom to create about. Sometimes you just can’t placed into words everything you feel whenever your heart is constant and content. Personally i think beyond lucky to become invited here; the motivation in health and fitness classes, new friends and being a little more susceptible has left me with a realization that I have to forget about my anxieties of judgement when it comes to blogging and becoming more personal.

My goodness is it possible to believe AK continues to be cooking for just a little more than 3 years? I’ve created here about my life experiences, career changes, moving, interactions, friendships and my ever growing obsession with Zac Efron. What I haven’t included is my real and constant battle with food; certainly it isRead more

So I’m doing a juice & food cleanse at this time. I’m SUPER worked up about it because as you may already know I freakin’ love doing them. It isn’t that I believe they’re great in the moment, it’s just that I really like how Personally i think afterwards. The huge benefits? How obvious my skin appears, how much great rest I get and how in a different way I find yourself thinking about meals.

I’ll have updates for you around the cleanse quickly; in the meantime I’ve been staring at these pubs on the counter most of yesterday. I produced them the other day for Tony because he’s all like I need to get a lean body for baseball season – that is as he continues to eat chocolateRead more

How was your weekend? We finally create our living room with our brand-new rug, plus I just ordered a custom designed ottoman, which I’m actually quite excited about. We selected a dark blue velvet color and can’t wait around to see it when it arrives in a couple weeks. Other new factors?

Let’s capture up. How are you?

This week I joined a new gym, where I’m quite certain my trainer is either Big Foot, a marine, or a specialist wrestler. He shows my Nike Training Camp classes, which certainly are a mixture of plyometrics, military drills, cardio, and weights. Actually sweating waterfalls every time I go out of there; it’s very similarRead more
