July 26: Tabata Thursday

Hi friends! I’m in between classes right now, but wanted to get up this week’s Tabata Thursday video! We ALL have 4 minutes to spare- shake (or jump, muaha) those legs out and you’ll feel much better. For more info on Tabata training, check out this post. Some things to remember: -Always warm up and […]

Job secrets

Nothing like a glass of the vinolicious after a long day of teaching.  Zumba was outta control, I had a huge stretch class (over 40 ladies stretching!) and pool was surprisingly fun. They liked my playlist, which always helps things along, even when the particular class isn’t my forte. Afternoon snacks:   (Broccoli slaw with […]

Whitney: Dip-dyed Locks!

Holy Pinterest and Instagram inspiration Batman. Ever since I first saw a few dip dye pins roll through my feed a few months ago, I’ve been lusting after the dreamsicle dipped locks for my own. Luckily for me one of my bestest friends, Rikki from Hair Ya Go, happens to be one of the most […]

What’s a boba?

Apparently I’ve been living under a rock, because I had no clue what the funny balls were at BTO last night. “What is that?!” “Boba! Try one!” and Kyle hands me one. About 2 minutes later: “Are you supposed to pop it or something?” He laughed pretty hard.  They were a fun little addition to […]

Getting schooled

Watching Liv learn new things is one of my favorite things in my life. There is nothing like watching those beautiful huge eyes open wide and take it all in. Today, we went to the Children’s Museum and the second we walked into the baby room, her eyes immediately went up to the rainforest ceiling. […]

An Interview with David Kirsch

One thing I’m trying to get better at: interviewing others. I get press requests to interview various personalities on a regular basis, but either a) chicken out for fear of potential awkwardness, or 2) it’s something I decide I want to go for, and realize it’s a day that I’m at work teaching. Recently, I […]

Lavender and honey salmon

I never, ever would have thought to do this. Looks like regular salmon, right? Nope, it’s coated in a mix of dried lavender and honey. Best surprising combo I’ve had in a looooooong time. Since my uncle the cheffer has been staying with us, we talk food pretty often. He’s given me some great tips […]

Spicy almond butter zucchini chips

A couple of weeks ago, I got my hair Keratin-ized. It had been over a year (!) and I was so excited to defrizzify my mane. Madre hooked it up -you can read more about the type of treatment I get here– and I gave myself a kink by wearing a ponytail a couple of […]

Meg: I dye

I am SO excited to share my most recent DIY with you beautiful Fitnessista readers! The other day I was thrifting with two of my best friends, when I found this darling white dress. The only problem was the color. Me and the color white…we don’t quite get along. I am the ultimate spiller and […]

Vino and carne

Can we just take a moment here? Two of my favorite things EVER (chocolate and vino) had a lovechild. And it is a delicious lovechild. To be honest, it was a little on the sweet side, but it didn’t stop me from having a hefty glass with the fam. Think of it like wine Bailey’s. […]

Leftover love

Before I start this post, I have to say that Livi crawled FORWARD today. I’m such a proud mama <3 The best part about having a beautiful meal cooked by others? Leftovers. (Please to excuse the crazy hair) I came home from work on my lunch break and was so stoked to see some pasta […]
