Fondly, Michelle

It was a pleasure to catch up with colleagues, speak with fellow female fitness professionals and address the concerns of attendees regarding professionalism and ethical behavior. Thanks to everyone for the positive feedback!

I'm delighted to share a little video of my participation as a presenter at the National Strength and Conditioning Association Midwest Regional Clinic in Muncie, IN this past weekend.

Reese's peanut butter cup consumption count is up, way up.

I am so excited to share this with you! In my glacial pace of moving my diet toward "more vegan, less carnivor," I have stumbled upon something frighteningly delicious.


Here is the link to the recipe and my photos of making it in my own kitchen. So easy and fast, even self proclaimed, "non-cooks" could pull them off perfectly!

Drop a comment and let me know what you think!

It was a joy to be featured in

"8 Things Every Personal Trainer Knows (and You Should too)"

in Prevention Magazine. Cindy Kuzma seemlessly combines brilliant tips from top trainers and offers compelling solutions to common fitness hurdles.

You, my dear readers, are some of the strongest women (and men) I know, I felt compelled to put this on your radar, in case you, too, had missed it.

Shocking it has taken me this long to stumble upon this! I could not help but think of my strong, hardworking, professional female client list as I read, Anne-Marie Slaughter "Why Women Still Can't Have It All" article for The Atlantic: 

Would love to hear your thoughts or like on our Facebook page.

Unfinished Business, Anne-Marie Slaughter's latest book, is now at the top of my reading list. Critics are weighing in with mixed reviews, but I am determined to listen in and learn more about unraveling this problem.

    Quick, super easy, nutritious and Halloween-colored!

Black and Orange Quesadillas - eerily delicious!

2 medium sweet potatoes

1 can of refried black beans

12 corn tortillas

1 small round of queso quesadilla

small container of pepitas

Microwave two sweet potatoes in 1/2" of water in a small casserole dish for four minutes. Flip potatoes. Microwave again and repeat until very soft. (2 or 3 times)

Cut potatoes in half length-wise and scoop out the "meat" as you create each quesadilla.

Scoop black beans directly out of the can and smear onto one side of tortilla. Sweet potato onto the other.

Sprinkle pepitas onto one side.

Place a small serving of sliced cheese onto other side.

Fold cheese side to pepitas side (so you don't lose all of your seeds.)

Drizzle small amount of olive oil onto skillet and place folded corn tortillas onto pan (give them a jiggle so they don't stick)

I like to place something a little heavy onto the quesadillas as they cook. (I use a cast iron bacon press - I don't use it for bacon.)

Flip after a few minutes.

Plate with brown rice, cilantro and enjoy!
