How do you fit working out into your day?

Like many other people, I schedule it.  I know in my head when I have time to work out.  It takes a little bit of time to make it a habit, but once it is, it will be second nature to have your sneakers waiting for you at the front door.

Do you count calories?

I know approximately how many calories I need and approximately how many are in the foods I consume regularly.  While calorie counting is a great tool for weight loss and weight maintenance, I’ve been blessed as an intuitive eater.  I listen to my hunger pains, I allow myself to indulge every so often, and I listen to my body’s signals when it has had too much or too little.

What are some things on your bucket list?

I think I’ve been doing a good job of crossing off my bucket list lately, so here’s an ever evolving list with things that I’ve done:

  • Run a marathon before I’m 30 – CHECK!  Ran the Pittsburgh Marathon in May 2011
  • Run a half marathon in under 2 hours
  • Start my own business and have it be successful
  • Start a family
  • Travel out west – CHCEK! Went to Colorado this past summer (2012) still want to do a grand canyon trip though
  • Travel to Italy – CHECK!  Studied abroad in Rome learning about the Mediterranean diet and international nutrition
  • Go back to Italy ;)
  • Get a dog
  • Race a triathlon
  • Visit Napa Valley

Do you prefer breakfast, lunch, or dinner?

BREAKFAST!  Hands down.  I love pancakes!

What’s your favorite workout?

Running and yoga.  I really can’t choose, because it depends on my mood.  But each help me to decompress.


None of the packages specifically fit my needs.  Can I customize a nutrition or fitness package?

Most definitely.  Everyone has different needs and I tried to create as many packages as I could to accommodate that.  If there is something you would like to add to a specific package, feel free to contact me and we will get to work!

How do I pay for the fitness and nutrition packages?

I’ve created the payment system through PayPal.  You will need to create a PayPal account in order to use it.  It is a safe and easy way to order your services.
