Meg: DIY Yarn Puffs

I’m back with another DIY! This is one of my favorites because it requires very few materials and its purpose is multifunctional. With yarn, scissors, and a small piece of cardboard, you can adorn your home, gifts, and even yourself with these adorable yarn puffs! Materials: Tip: Your cardboard should the same length you’d like…

Zumba with me! “Pegate”

Whenever things are stressful and stuff is going on, dancing always has a way of helping me put things in perspective, or even just forget about them and enjoy the moment.  I mentioned before that one of us was supposed to have surgery today, but it turns out that it’s not for another week. We…

11/28: What I Ate Wednesday

I’ve done a couple of these before, and keep getting more requests for them, so I thought it would be a good day to do another since it was a fairly “normal” work day, even though I taught two more intense classes instead of one. It was also a normal life day, which can affect…

Seasonal delights

I’m working (eating through) another What I Ate Wednesday post, but in the meantime, I had to share two of my recent Trader Joe’s finds: the tea is an old favorite (I buy an insane amount when they’re about to get rid of it for the rest of the year) and a new love. As easy…

DIY Felt Christmas Tree

“One hot glue gun does not a crafty Gina make.”  I would be lying if I said that crafts didn’t intimidate me. Whenever I get the urge to DIY, the Pinterest feed instantly streams into my brain. Before you know it, I’m doubting and wah-wah-ing myself, when I remember that “if you run, you’re a…

How we sushi roll

They look so professional, huh? That would be because the professionals at Takamatsu made them. When I knew we were having a sushi party -and we’ve had the kind where guests make their own rolls, it’s crazy fun- I figured I would leave this one to the pros since I wanted to have real fish…

Baby turkey lentil muffins

I’m always excited to try out new recipes for Liv, especially when they’re protein-dense. She loves beans, chicken, fish and egg yolks, but I love looking for new ways to serve them, since most of the time, she’ll just have them plain with maybe some olive or coconut oil and herbs. A major thing we’re…

Thinking outside the “box”

You may have seen CrossFit on my tentative workout schedule every week for the past, ummm, couple of months? Well, even with the best intentions, I still haven’t made it back. There are so many different class options, but no early morning beginner classes. I really want to learn all of the lifts/techniques and the…

Gina: my first StitchFix

When Jenna first blogged about StitchFix about a month ago, I knew it was something I would love.  It’s kind of funny because I used to spend a lot more time in workout clothes and pajamas, but now when I leave the house with Liv, it’s kind of fun to wear “real” clothes since she’s…

Merrier, brighter

Whew! Woke up feeling a little sore from yesterday’s long run. I’m definitely still breaking in the new Brooks, and while I like them so far, they don’t have the same mold-to-my-feet feel that the beloved Asics had. (Which is to be expected since I’d been working out in the same Asics for almost a…

11/25: Meals and Fitness for the week

Is anyone else ready to eat a vegetable after last week’s holiday pie-stravaganza? I definitely am. At the same time, I still keep going back to the pie trifecta to steal the innards. Did you know pecan pie is the least healthy option when it comes to pie innards? It’s also the most delicious…. This…
