Citrus Salmon and Acorn Squash


This post should probably be titled "holy cow, Emmie is blogging about cooking" because that's how rare it is. The moment I got off the plane in Baltimore for FitBloggin', I headed straight to an event that was being hosted by McCormick. When I arrived to the McCormick Testing and Innovation Center, I got to see many of my FitBloggin friends heading off the busses and into the center for the event as well. We were treated to an amazingly tasty Continue Reading

No biggie


This week has been fast and furious, in a good way. I caught up on everything from being gone for a week and feel good about work. Anyone else feel like they thrive much better under pressure?

The post about food.

Meal Planning

I get lots of questions emailed to me about my food: what do I eat, how much, what do I suggest, etc. Talking about food is almost as uncomfortable for me as talking about religion or politics. It's a massive part of my problem with my weight as well as the thing that I've put the most energy into trying to correct. I'll show my workout videos to the world all day long, but if you ask me to talk about my relationship with food, it's like you're Continue Reading
