Kanye Attitude, Drake Feelings (Or: Welcome To The World, Beatrix!)

Look at the back of the plane, all the way to the last row. Crunched against the window seat, 30F, surrounded by a swarm of big cowboy hats and even bigger hair, that’s where you will find me. I’m not sure how the Texans currently encircling me on this American Airlines flight from Dallas will…

February 2016 Playlist

If you stalked me TF out in my About Me, then you know that I work in TV. This means that I get to travel a lot (yassss) but I also have to work weird hours sometimes. My latest workout obsessions are Barry’s Bootcamp and Flywheel, because I’ve been seeing results fast and feel really…

No8Do-Chapters 3 and 4

[In case you missed Chapters One and Two, catch up here] Chapter Three: Isabella woke up, confused and alone in a dark room, with a pounding headache.

If you are a trendy Netflix viewer, you may know Medellín from popular drug cartel drama, Narcos. However, since the 80’s and 90’s, the city has really cleaned…

You Betta Werk: Shred415 vs. BRICK

Last week while traveling, I tried two different circuit/strength based workouts. I’ve never really gravitated toward these types of workouts before (see: lazy AF) but to keep the momentum going post, 30-lb milestone, I wanted to do something different and challenging. The first workout took place in Chicago, in a cute studio in the Old…

You Betta Werk: Monster Cycle

I am so obsessed with this workout, that I skipped going to ~the third party~ on Friday night (much to my date’s chagrin, sorry!), so that I could make sure I was awake in time for class. #dedicated4mahfitness I just knew I was going to love it, and I wasn’t wrong. The inside of the…
