Electric Ride

Electric Ride

I was so blessed to join the Electric Ride last night at Rev Cycle Studio! This was an awesome charity event put on to support the fabulous Jessie Benson before she heads to join the Africa Yoga Project!!

Moving from a one/two step process for my facial skincare to Arbonne was a thoughtful, awesome choice! Not sure how I lasted on a random-brand before…

I am so incredibly excited for our wedding day…I’m even more excited that I get to celebrate it with some of the most amazing ladies I’ve ever met! 

My one and only sister! What can I say….I’ve known her for a while. haha

Me and this lovely lady met when I moved to Baltimore about 5 years ago. We worked together at Port Discovery then took a quick hiatus (and decided to become roommates because we missed each other SO much haha) and now work together again at National Aquarium!

Molly and I met actually through Tone It Up and were part of the BMOREtoned original crew! Since then, our friendship has blossomed and (although she left me to live in her amazing bay-front house in Annapolis – can you feel the jealousy haha) we’re excited to BOTH be in each others weddings this year! That’s right, Molly is getting married in May too!

I met this little firecracker, Annie, when we worked together at Planit. I basically brainwashed her into joining our Tone It Up BMOREtoned group and we’ve been close ever since. We have big plans for the fitness industry...but more on that at a later date hehe

This girl is literally one of my oldest friends (as in known the longest…she’s not like 100 years old! haha). We started as little wee buddies back in New Jersey. Ah those were the days…we’ve come a long way since then!

Best (aka Catey)
Catey and I were college roommates at University of Miami for the entire four years I was there. We did the whole ‘started out as strangers’ thing freshman year and couldn’t shake each other after that! She eventually joined (followed…creepily stalked…?) me in Baltimore and I’m so happy to have her back as a neighbor!

All in all, I have some amazing bridesmaids!

As my Facebook newsfeed starts to fill up with photos of kids on front steps an in front of refrigerators (always my mom’s go-to) and every store in the universe now has Halloween decorations/candy (it’s not even September!!!), it dawns on me that we’re at […]

Weekly Workouts 6.24 – 6.30

Weekly Workouts 6.24 – 6.30

This week started out slow, but ended with some great workouts!


I was completely ready to go to bootcamp on Monday, but then I got this intense, horrible stomach pain! Ugh! I was riling around on the couch all night trying to feel better. Hence, no workout…


Tuesday was a long day, but Tom saved me in suggesting we take a long bike ride before dinner.

We rode a little over 5.5 miles down towards Fort McHenry and got to watch a beautiful sunset.

Wednesday morning felt like I got into my old routine – got to the gym early for a HIIT run then enjoyed 30 minutes of CXWORX!

I finally got in a good run this day! Molly & I got up early to hit the pavement like old times…slash for the last time. BOO HISS. Molly actually just moved this week to her new spot in Annapolis… 🙁

Speaking of last times with Molly…Friday we had another awesome workout with the founding members of TeamRick!


Molly, of course, got in some sassy modeling while she was there. haha


Friday night was AMAZING. As you may have seen, Friday night was also my first interaction with SURFSET! We had an awesome trial session with the team. I could immediately feel it in my core!

Saturday, we spent the morning and most of the day walking around Harbor East for the Fit+ event! We enjoyed another SURFSET session – this time for much longer and with a greater variety of moves.

I can really feel it in all over today!


Today was a busy day. We were running errands, Tom was building our bike garage, I was (attempting) to bake homemade croissants…

I didn’t get in a lot, but I did get in a good two mile bike ride to get eggs (for croissants)! Note to self, I need a basket…carrying eggs on a bike is difficult. HAHA!

So, we’re coming up on another big week – Let’s get in some great workouts! Alarm is already set for CXWORX tomorrow!

Have an amazing week everyone! xoxo
