The latest episode of Meals & Miles is up at!

I’m really happy with how the video came out. Dance Trance is high energy, crazy, and FUN – and all those qualities really stand out in the show. If this show doesn’t make you want to pop up and start dancing then I don’t know what will! ๐Ÿ™‚

From one show to to another…

Today I met the Izon crew at Vixen Fitness to film next week’s episode.


I’ve taken the Intro to Pole class once before (review here) and knew it would be the perfect hidden gem to showcase on the show.

Jan, Vixen’s owner, was amazing to work with. She set up a private class full of girls who were comfortable with being filmed while shaking their bootie. All the girls really embraced their inner sexiness and rocked it. We got some great footage (at least I hope we did!) and the show will go live next Tuesday at 3:00! ๐Ÿ™‚

The best part of the class was getting to see one of my favorites who is always willing to make a fool of herself in front of a camera any day of the week.


Hi Katy!


She didn’t warn me we were doing the duck face! Otherwise I totally would have been game too!

The drive to Orlando was another easy one this afternoon. I arrived a couple of hours early and stopped at Whole Foods to take advantage of their free WiFi and fuel up with I-Forget-The-Name-Of smoothie.


It was a fruit based smoothie, but I think I will stick with dairy based in the future. Dairy blends seems to have a little more staying power for me.

By the time we wrapped up right before 7:00 my tummy was growling for more food. I wanted to hit the road back to Tampa ASAP, so I kept dinner easy and headed back to Whole Foods to take advantage of the Hot Bar.


I loaded my plate with a mix of spicy hot foods, greek salad, hummus, and pita.


with a Moroccan Mint Green Tea (probably my favorite Honest Tea)


I lost my voice screaming singing to the Rent soundtrack on my way back to Tampa. The drive really flew by! Leaving from the west side of Orlando + no traffic = perfection!

Now, It’s time for bed. It’s been a long day and my puppy is calling my name.

Good Night!

Hey Meghann! I was thinking about maybe doing that yoga thing in Tampa. I just moved down to Lakeland from Michigan, so I’m always looking for new people to hang out with! Email me if you’re serious about meeting up!!!

Yes, serious! What’s your e-mail? You can e-mail me at

I loved the episode and I can’t wait for the next one! You dinner looks so good. I need to go to a whole foods asap. I’ve never been and everyday the bog world reminds me what I’m missing.

When I saw your tweet about the upcoming video and the potential/possible embarrassment factor, I immediately thought of pole dancing. What a fun thing to do though – and definitely unique!

Did I tell you that I’m going to see Rent next month in St Petersburg? ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m sure the pole dancing class will be a great one to watch! I’ve never tried it, but some of my friends have and said it was an awesome workout.

11 RunningOnCoffee March 15, 2011 at 10:35 pm

I want to try that Moroccan Mint green tea!

I would love to try a class like Vixen Fitness or Pole Dancing — I have no rhythym and fear I would fail horribly, but it would be fun to try!

I love that your smoothie matches your shirt! And congrats on another great episode! *Lurve*

HA! – I do try my best to coordinate my clothing with my food ๐Ÿ™‚

You did a wonderful job Meghann!!
Wish we had Dance Trance or something similar in Australia!
Looking forward to seeing the next video! ๐Ÿ˜€

Honest tea has Moroccan Mint? I just got back from Morocco and LOVED the tea – I wonder how similar it is?

You’re a busy girl! It looks like you had fun though, can’t wait to watch that episode!

you’re such a star!

despite the craziness, what an awesome time. you are such a go-getter and it always amazes me how busy you are.

i think the best way to lose a voice is by singing the rent soundtrack loudly!

Whole Foods hot bar has really changed eating on the go! I just love their hot and salad bars for a quick, healthy meal. Might be a bit pricey but so worth the expense for something that leaves you feeling great – unlike a lot of other “fast food” options!

I just checked out your video and it was awesome. Although, I do love the gym and the classes that my gym offers but this video made me want to try other avenues as well.

I am incredibly jealous of your twice in one day Whole Foods action. We don’t have one here yet!!

We have a brand new Whole Foods that just opened, and I’ve been wanting to eat every meal there! I love that place!

I cannot wait to see this episode. After reading Katy’s post about how to enjoy the class I’m sure you had a blast and got a great workout.

Moroccan mint Honest Tea must have crack in it. I currently have 3 bottles I drank yesterday in my van and just finished my second today.
