MOXIE LADY is about living.

HEALTH + FITNESS – I have recently started on the 21 Day Fix journey and fell in love with the program, the pain I go through in the workouts, the shortness of the workouts, and the results! It’s worth checking out if you want to get healthy. I will be posting about the program and my successes here along with recipes and tips.


RECIPES – Mostly paleo and whole30 style cooking here. I fell hard for the clean eating movement, and being a HUGE foodie, I strive to create exciting and deliciously creative dishes to satisfy the need to eat something more exciting while still eating clean. All recipes are my own unless otherwise noted. I mostly dabble in dishes that are easy to make in bulk so as to freeze some for later, quick dinners for the working mom, because I am, and things that the entire family will like, because that just makes things simpler!  

TRAVEL – I enjoy sharing my experiences with my readers and social media channels. I like to talk to locals when I travel to new areas and find the best places to hike, the cool places to get drinks, the hot spots for food, and the best places for coffee. It’s important to get the local influence in order to have a true genuine experience in that area. Not all of us can speak to locals so I take what I’ve learned and experienced and share it on MOXIE LADY.

LIFESTYLE – All of the above, plus family stuff, work, entertaining, ideas, tips & tricks, local events, beer/wine/food events in the North Bay/Bay Area and beyond, and more. All things life. And the occasional SF Giants gab.
I hope you will find MOXIE LADY resourceful when planning beer-cations, when looking at what events to go to in the Bay Area, when you are stuck eating the same ‘ol thing and need something fresh and new, or when you just want to check out what I’ve been saying lately.

CRAFT BEER – I am a beer traveler, I have visited over 540 breweries across the nation. I want to share those experiences with the world and promote all of the great breweries I love.

WINE – My heart- I am a wine professional: DTC, Marketing, Communications & Hospitality. I love what I do and I love wine. This blog promotes local wine events and happenings and occasionally shows what else is going on in the wine industry.


I hope you will find MOXIE LADY resourceful when planning beer-cations, when looking at what events to go to in the Bay Area, when you are stuck eating the same ‘ol thing and need something fresh and new, or when you just want to check out what I’ve been saying lately.

21 Day Fix Round 1 Results

I am so thrilled by how this program works! In just 20 days I lost over five total inches and 10 pounds. I worked out daily according to the 21 Day Fix plan for 30 minutes and followed the food program. At first the program was somewhat difficult because I have never really been into measuring my food, however, it’s super simple. I can eat most everything that I want and I have now changed (somewhat, still working on this) my way of thinking about food – eating to fuel my body rather than dreaming about the amazing dinner I am going to eat while eating lunch, LOLZ. That alone has helped me lose weight.

Inches lost in 20 days:
Chest: 1/2 in
Waist: 3.5 in
Arms: 1.25 in
Thighs: 1 in
Calf: .1/2 in
Hips: 1 in
Weight: lost 10 pounds
If you are on the fence about starting this program, then make the leap and just do it because these results don’t lie. I already feel stronger and happier in just my fourth week! Finding balance is HUGE and definitely the key to success. With my crazy busy schedule with work, home-life, writing, exercising, my dog, and social life, I have had to find foods that I don’t get sick of, that are still compliant with the program and do not take forever to make or measure. Here is what I go-to:
  • egg muffins (11 eggs makes a dozen “muffins” and you can add whatever greens, veggies, or protein to it you want!)
  • shakeo drink – chocolate vegan with PB2 (that’s a peanut butter powder with very little calories)
  • Veggie stir fry with sugar snap peas, carrots, mushrooms, and bell peppers
  • Spinach salad with apple, cucumber, red onion, cilantro and a champagne vinaigrette with a little olive oil
  • Chicken salad with homemade aioli on romaine


  • TACOS!! I eat veggie tacos almost every night if I have not eaten my blue yet (that’s healthy fat) which I usually save it for this. I use gluten free corn tortillas, tons of fresh tomatoes, and a ton of fresh cilantro with a squeeze of lime. Add lettuce, chicken, beef, beans, whatever you’d like, just measure your containers before you build! Two corn tortillas is 1 yellow container, I use about 2 greens then 1 blue for my tacos nightly
  • Spinach salad with roasted sweet potatoes, grilled beef and a fried egg on top
  • Seared ahi tuna, leafy lettuce, cucumber, radish, tomatoes and quinoa
  • Zucchini noodles with shrimp and a garlic olive oil drizzle
  • Taco salad with grilled chicken, corn, romaine, olive, cilantro, tomato, and lime


  • Non-fat plain yogurt with peaches
  • Hummus and apple
  • Veggies with a creamy non-fat yogurt dressing/dip
  • Cucumbers and roasted beet salad
  • Sauteed Brussels sprouts with coconut nectar ( a maple syrup substitute)

I try to stay away from things that won’t satisfy me like the avocado, even though I LOVE avocados, I can only ave 1/4 in a day, so why bother? Fresh veggies, loads of fresh herbs, eggs, and roasted meats and vegetables are the way to go!
