Traveling misadventures + Hi from Arkansas

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? 

We are in Little Rock, Arkansas! We came here to visit the Pilot’s family, and meet our new niece, Nylah. We can’t wait to see everyone! It feels so great to be here, and even better after a crazy night of travel.

Gorg trees

(I’ve always been obsessed with the tall, gorgeous trees in the South)

Before packing everything up, I got in an Orangetheory class. It felt so great to work out again after being sick and two days off. I especially love to get in a run or sweaty class during travel days when I know I’ll be doing a lot of sitting.

Otf and orange shoes

It was my favorite workout that we’ve done in a long time. 

Lately, I’ve felt like OTF has been a lot of crunch variations. Last time, we did four different types of crunches, and I was in the grey zone (the cool down zone) for a majority of class. I’m pretty sure my coach thought I was dead based on the screen. For yesterday’s workout, it was an awesome balance of HIIT intervals with incline on the treadmill, strength, balance training, and functional core work. It was amaaaazing, and I was in the green zone with a little orange for most of the class.

Twice-baked sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts hash

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? Liv and I have been playing nurse to the pups; they’re still moving a little slowly after their dental cleaning yesterday. Poor girls. Hoping they’re back to their spunky selves soon. Instead of a picture of them looking tired and forlorn, here are some succulents: Last night was gloriously […]

“No Place Like Orange” workout


+ Friday Faves!  Hi! Happy Friday! Any fun plans for the weekend? We have lots of holiday cheer on the agenda: zoo lights, cookie decorating party, holiday party, and getting ready for Tucson travel adventures. Here are some faves from the week and around the web! As always, I love to hear your faves, too, […]

Fitness Instructor Cliches

Hi guys! How’s your day going? So happy you liked the pizza/flatbread recipe! Let me know if you give it a try. The past few days have been interesting. I’ve had to avoid the temptation to use my left hand in daily life (or face the stinging consequence). That means avoiding exercises that involve gripping […]

The weirdest breakfast ever


(and that one time I had to ride in an ambulance. Please skip this post if you’re squeamish, like yours truly.) Hi Hope you’re all having a wonderful day. I’m typing this with one hand because I had a little incident today. It all started with this weird breakfast I had yesterday. This is going […]

Yoga teacher training

Lots of snuggles and downtime over here:  Even though I hate when Livi is sick, the cuddles and downtime have been amazing. After a frantic week last week, some forced relaxation is much-appreciated, especially when I get to spend it relaxing with noodle. Usually she rarely sits still, but we’ve been camped on the couch […]

Date night and doc


I think the post title pretty much says it all. (jalapeño prickly pear margarita!)  How’s your week going so far? The other night, the Pilot and I had an amazing date night at the Flying V at Loew’s Ventana. We go to Sunday brunch at the resort fairly often -it’s one of our all-time favorite […]

Half marathon playlist


For the half marathon I didn’t run. I’m supposed to be finishing the race as this post goes up, but instead, I’m at home drinking coffee after a nice night of sleep. I’ll never know if I would have crossed the finish line triumphantly, because in my mind, I pictured myself hobbling to a medical […]



Last night reaffirmed an important life lesson: yoga is not like pizza. Ashley had suggested a candlelight hatha class, and I thought it would be good to go stretch, especially after my fall. When we got there, there was a sub, which is usually NBD; subs have helped me to find new instructors that I […]

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 […]

A tip for fellow H2O slackers


I’ve been sucking with the whole water thing lately. Despite the fact that Liv is a water drinking machine, and constantly asking for “Agua! Agua!”, I still manage to forget. The kick in the pants was when I had my makeup done on Saturday for the wedding, and the makeup artist told me I was […]

Coconut fail

Coconut flour and I have never really been friends. Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results, and for some insane reason I keep trying to act like coconut flour can easily replace other flours. It doesn’t work. At all. I’m on a major tortilla kick -well, my whole life is a major […]
