Focus On: 21dayfix

Another Beachbody workout down!

21dayfix review

A group of lovely ladies and myself just wrapped up 21dayfix this past weekend. Since some of us were doing the original workout, others were doing the Extreme, some were doing the meal plan, and others (including myself) were not, the group was really focused on clean eating and group motivation. It’s always helpful to have a group working towards similar goals, and cheering for each other along the way. This is one of the many reasons why I love the Shape Up series so much! (PS Anne and I are already cranking away on Winter Shape Up, which will begin in late January.)

Here are some of my thoughts on 21dayfix:

Focus On: SH’BAM

I tried SH’BAM… and I liked it. Is it weird that the reason I’d been holding off is because the name kind of turned me away? I thought it sounded like wizard aerobics, and in my head, I say it way more enthusiastically than probably intended (SH’BAAAAAAAM!!!!!!). I pictured myself dancing around to mystical music […]

Focus On: Les Mills On Demand

Hiiiii Happy Wednesday! We’re at the hump! I always like to tell myself it’s all downhill from here. 😉 I’m so glad you’re as excited as I am about the Lorna Jane giveaway! Keep those entries coming! I’ve always had an appreciation for at-home workouts. There are many situations where it’s the most feasible option, […]

Focus On: Water Aerobics

I will never forget my first *real* water aerobics class. The Pilot and I were at Canyon Ranch and we thought it would be a fun and “relaxing” end of the afternoon. The pool was filled with older yet vibrant ladies, bobbing in the water with their sun hats on to “Wooly Bully.” Source I […]

Focus On: HIGHX

Hi friends! Thank you so much for all of your awesome nap/sleep advice over on the Family page. I always appreciate your expertise! For today’s Focus On, I’m going to feature a workout I recently had the opportunity to experience. The best part: it was led by the creator herself, Gabby Reece.  During Blogfest, we […]

Focus On: Quiver Pulse

You guys. I got the chance to try a workout that is TAKING OVER southern California. It’s like yoga, Zumba, meditation, and strength training all in one: Quiver Pulse! It’s still in the grassroots phase right now, but I was invited to take a special class in a quaint and beautiful studio space:  When I […]

Focus On: Barry’s Bootcamp

After all of this time, I finally took a Barry’s Bootcamp class. I’m not sure what I’ve been waiting for, as it’s something I’ve been wanting to try for years. I was really excited when we found out there was one in San Diego, but I’ve been so happy in my Orangetheory bubble that I […]

My first hydrostatic weighing experience

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a great night! I’m taking a little break to hang out and say hello before wrapping gifts and getting my playlist ready for Zumba.  So this weekend, I got my body fat percentage tested. To be real, I’m more of an “ignorance is bliss” type of person when it comes […]

Focus On: Core40

Hi! How’s the day going? So happy to see that you’re excited about the Juil giveaway! Get ready for tomorrow’s.. it’s a prize valued at $700. Crazypants! You guys. My legs. My abs. It’s been two days and the intense soreness has officially set in.   Sunday was my first time taking Core40, and I […]

Focus On: IIFYM

(If It Fits Your Macros) I’ve received a few requests to talk about macro counting, especially since it’s surged in popularity on Instagram, particularly in the past year or so. You may have seen a picture of a giant donut covered in frosting + sprinkles, or a double-stuffed pizza and the hashtag “IIFYM,” which stands […]

Focus On: Carb Cycling (what is it and how does it work?)

Recently, I got a question about carb cycling and how my eating changes depending on whether I’m in my losing or maintenance mode. There is a lot of hubbub in the fitness world about carb cycling and macro counting, so here’s a little post with my two cents. For those who may be curious about […]


Something about trying a new fitness class makes me so excited. And sore. This is almost always the case, and my legs are still screaming with victory cries after last night’s Sparkcycle class. Indoor cycling is one of my favorite workouts -you can get in an intense cardio workout without joint impact- and one of […]
