Satisfying September

by Hillary on September 30, 2014

September was satisfying. It’s the last day of the month, and my heart is feeling full. My head, too, but what’s new there!

<< September 2014 >>


The month started off with a lovely Labor Day weekend, full of family. We celebrated Grandma’s birthday with all the sweet treats and met the newest and cutest addition to our extended family.

Two UH-mazing outdoor concerts: Blake Shelton with my gals + Jason Aldean with my beau

I started seeing paying Health Coaching clients and launched the Nutrition Nut email newsletter.

I found myself at the downtown farmer’s market every Saturday morning and shared a Creamy Coconut Figgy Green Smoothie with y’all.

P put me through a killer Barbell Complex at the WREC, and I ran often.

There were more Feel Good Fridays than one.


Here’s to hoping October is fulfilling, festive, and fun…!

How did you and September get along?

Burnin’ It Down

by Hillary on September 29, 2014

I waited all summer for it…

To wrap up “summer” and celebrate 3+ years together, P and I went to the Jason Aldean Burn It Down Tour featuring Florida Georgia Line and Tyler Farr. The concert was an absolute blast. Certainly a Sunday date night for the books!

Despite the cool, cloudy fall morning (perfect for my 7-mile run), the temps didn’t drop too low to keep us from dancing on the amphitheater lawn late into the night.

Two weeks ago, I was at the same amphitheater with my gals to see Blake Shelton – totally fun! – but it wasn’t the same as spending a Sunday with the guy that turned me on to country music. Before living in Chico, I couldn’t name five country artists; now, it’s all that’s ever on my radio. #she’scountry










 Who would you like to see in concert?

I’ll never say no to another Luke Bryan show!


Craving Cardio {Weekly Workouts}


Hey friends! I hope you had a lovely first fall weekend. It’s going to be a long Monday for me today after getting home at 1:00am from the Jason Aldean concert… but well worth it. Last night’s show was such a blast! However, after running 7.25 miles and dancing for three hours (plus the lack of […]

Summer Bucket List Score Card


Now that summer is officially over – it’s raining today! – I suppose I should tally up my Summer 2014 Bucket List efforts. While the season may be over, I certainly do not plan to put my unfinished projects to rest. 1 // Get on my bike – outside! I don’t think I have hopped on […]

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of PUMA Fitness. While spring and summer colors may be a season of the past, that does not mean you can’t rock bright workout gear throughout the fall and winter months. I am a big fan of bold fitness fashion, so I was excited when […]

Barbell Complex & Weekly Workouts


I am a happy camper when I finish a week with a single Rest Day. While I believe in their importance, I heart exercising! This week felt running/cardio heavy, relatively speaking (it wasn’t a 40 mile week), so I was overjoyed to end it with a heavy and sweaty WREC workout with P on Sunday. The […]

10 Foods That Are Always in My Kitchen


The items in my kitchen change with the seasons. In other words, I’m literally eating bowls of raw heirloom tomatoes for dinner for the remainder of summer (local bell peppers, too, at 2/$1) and my oven roasts root vegetables all winter until I’m orange in the face. Part of my personal food philosophy is to […]

Catching up from the weekend? Friday: Q & A with the lovely London Saturday: Blake Shelton Concert  Sunday: Creamy Coconut Figgy Green Smoothie This week’s workouts weren’t too shabby… one rest day more than I’d prefer, but no need to fret about it. One thing I am fretting about is summer’s departure. I am a […]
