What the yoga doc ordered + a NEW Zumba video

Last night’s yoga class was everything I needed. Usually when I take class Wednesday night, my body is toasted from teaching all day. I still go, because it’s the one class I like to take each week, just for me, and I haven’t once regretted it. If anything, I think all of the stretching helps…

Holiday weekend + Summer Shape Up Signup

This past weekend was everything I could wish for in a holiday weekend. The Pilot was home for 4 days in a row (!!!), so we were able to take care of projects around the house, enjoy a couple of parties with friends and family, grill, and spend time together. I would like to let…

Memorial Day

While we’re enjoying a BBQ with friends, while I’m smashing 15 avocados to make guacamole, and Livi’s giggles are the soundtrack, I’ll be keeping in mind the sacrifices made by so many to protect our freedoms. I’ll be praying for the families of the heroes who lost their lives, sending love and wishes for a…

5/26: Meals and fitness + adventures in home improvement

Anyone else obsessed with Home Improvement growing up? (photo source) JTT was my LOVE. I had posters from Tiger Beat plastered all over my wall, would write him letters and send little trinkets. Hashtag fan girl. While I wasn’t the hugest fan of actual actual home improvement projects -I really just didn’t love Home Depot…

5/25: Weekend faves

-Seeing one of my little bros graduate. I’m so proud of Trevor! It’s so crazy, because I vividly remember Trev when he was Livi’s age… and now, he’s graduated high school. It was a solid reminder that time really does fly by, and I’m and so excited to see what he accomplishes next. After the…

What do ya know? I actually have some food pics for ya today. I was going do to a What I Ate Wednesday post, but got home from yoga too late, so here’s a What I Ate Wednesday on a Thursday 😉 Breakfast: 2 eggs + brown rice tortilla (with sriracha that I took to…

Dehydration 101

I got this request for a post last night, and since I didn’t have anything else to share this morning -I spent my Tuesday night with a glass of red and my Kindle since Liv was sleeping and the Pilot was flying- I figured it would be perfect for today. The title could possibly suggest…

This afternoon, Sasha and I had the opportunity to get some photos taken by the amazing James Patrick. He’s well-known for his work in the fitness industry -he does a lot of fitness magazine and Bodybuilding shoots- and we asked him to help take pics for our YouTube channel. We brought some fun dance outfits,…

Sweet Potato Pesto Pasta {gf with an easy Paleo/vegan option}

Last night was girls’ night since the Pilot had a late flight. When Liv woke up from a 3-hour nap (I finished up some to-dos, and even got to read and paint my toenails! Hallelujahhhhh), we had an awesome lunch together. I’d been wanting to make her something with fresh basil since she loves picking…

Pool, pull-ups and a [zumba] playlist

After an awesome breakfast, (pancakes, berries and eggs) We grabbed our swim stuff and left for a morning adventure – it was a perfect day for a swim! In standard Gina fashion, I messed up the times at our gym to use the pool. I thought the pool class started at 10:30, but turns out…

Berry Cheesecake Protein Fudge

If you follow me on Instagram, you already saw pictures of last night’s coyote sighting: (I can’t help but think, “They see me rollin’.. they hatin’…”) I was driving to Zumba and paused to let a pack of coyotes walk past. I snapped a quick shot from the side window and called the Pilot to…
