Just say “spa”

Hi friends! Happy humpday! I woke up feeling super sore this morning. I couldn’t decide if it was the squat clean and jerks or the bowling. Yep, definitely the bowling. We also enjoyed a delicious dinner last night:   (lavender and honey salmon, sauteed eggplant and zucchini with basil and rosemary, and smashed potatoes)

Where we ate and stayed in Disneyland

Since we’ve been home for two weeks, I was wondering if I should even write this post or if this ship has already sailed, but figured it may be worth it. Many of you might be planning upcoming Disney trips, and I always love hearing about other bloggers’ experiences with dining and hotels. So even…

Chicken tortilla soup for the soul + a Reebok giveaway- ENDED

  Little lovebug woke up coughing yesterday. Thankfully, as of now, it sounds fairly superficial -like a little summer cold/ick- but I’ve been trying to think of ways to soothe her throat and stop the coughing. She had some warm mint tea in her sippy cup yesterday morning (loved it!), and for dinner, it was…

Summer Workout Playlist

I wrote this post earlier but somehow missed the critical “press publish” step. Derp. 😉 Since I’m off work on Mondays, it always feels like a nice relaxing day, but this week is even more fun because the Pilot took some leave. He has 90-something days, and while he obviously can’t use them all -how…

Recent shopping finds

I tend to go through major shopping droughts. I think our wallet enjoys it because I live in workout clothes and get my monthly StitchFix box -which doesn’t feel like “real” shopping, haha- but then all of a sudden, there will be an avalanche of awesome deals and… things happen. Since I always love when fellow…

Quick No-bake Grain-free Cookie Dough

It always blows my mind when people say they don’t like chocolate. It’s ok, we can still be friends. More for me, right? I live for chocolate. Livi is quickly learning the ways, too. My nana bought me a cupcake magnet years ago and when you press the cupcake it says, “I loooooooooove chocolate.” Guess…

7/28: Meals and fitness for the week

Hi! Happy Sunday <3 This morning I FINALLY got my booty out of bed and ran. I went to Sabino, where many of the small streams were flowing from the recent monsoons. I ran through the water, and am pretty sure my shoes weighed 10 lbs when I was finished 😉 Today’s run was a…

7/26: Friday Faves

Hi friends 🙂 Happy Friday! I had a What I Ate Thursday post in progress for you, but taught 4 classes yesterday and it became impossible to remember to take photos of all my bites. In fun news, I got to team-teach a super sweaty Zumba class with Sasha at BreakOut Studios here in Tucson.…

Plank burner

I’m not sure if you guys remember the plank fail video of 2013. If you don’t remember, that’s probably a good thing haha. It was for Winter Shape Up, and I really wanted to make a plank ab burner. I went to my usual filming spot -a private studio at work- and saw that they…

Time for time out

You know that post-vacation slump? It came to our house with a vengeance after our amazing Disneyland trip. I’m not sure if Liv was just sad that we couldn’t go to “Minnie Mouse House” anymore, or if the “twos” are really here, but we started “time out” last week. I’m not sure if time out…

Nighttime workouts

Hello! Happy humpday 🙂 Hope you’re having a wonderful morning! I’m so excited that so many of you have already tried the zucchini pizza. Glad you’re enjoying it as much as we did! 🙂 Lately I’ve received quite a few questions about nighttime workouts, especially after posting the Monsoon Sweat Workout. To be real, I…
