Meet Chase Tucker, My Goto Instructor on My Favorite Workout App

We are almost finished with week 1 of our #21daychallenge, and I have been getting a lot of questions from you on social media about what workout app I use. I use the @onepeloton app on my phone and it rocks! They do not sponsor me, I genuinely like the workouts. I made a goal of 100 spin classes after True was born and I did it! I set a new goal of 100 boot camp classes on the app, and I am currently on class number 50! After trying a few different trainers on Peloton, I tried one of Chase Tucker’s boot camps and stuck with him ever since, and you get to meet him in this video!

Tomato, Cucumber, & Avocado Salad

Here is the weird part… yes, besides me be obsessed with a salad, there is no lettuce! At first, I questioned my creative abilities because I didn’t have lettuce, but my drive to make a healthy meal won in the end. Okay, enough joking around, you are going to dig this recipe.

I put out a call on social media to all my girls on the east coast who were interested in joining me for this scary and exciting opportunity!

Dare to Bare Event in Union Square!

I was so honored to be apart of the Dare to Bare event with Sweaty Betty in Union Square, NYC!

The Benefits of Being Fiercely Independent

I have always been an independent person. When I was 17 years old, I moved to New York City alone without knowing a single person or having any family nearby. People told me I was crazy and took bets on how long it would take for me to go back home. Last week while I was back in NYC, it was surreal... I was sitting in an Uber, stuck in traffic, and looked out my window to realize we were right in front of my old dorm building. I was able to see in the window of the room I stayed in and had one of those amazing life moments when you feel so damn proud of the person you have become. Read more about what I have learned about being #fiercelyindependent.
