The acai of my eyeeeeee

Hi friends! How’s the day going? Love your awesome comments on my last post! <3

The day involved a little bit of this = proof that it was a good one. :)

Cafe by the bay pb bowl

This is my 2nd favorite acai bowl in San Diego, from Cafe by the Bay. I’m very serious about acai bowl evaluation, from the type of blend they use (acai + apple juice, milk, or yogurt), granola quality, and base-to-topping ratio. Cafe by the Bay’s granola isn’t my favorite (it’s very oaty and I love the crunchier granola) BUT they have an awesome topping ratio aaaaand they use a LOT of peanut butter. It’s a very close second to my beloved Tiki Port.

Today was exciting because there were two awesome features of HIIT It!

Special thanks to my friends at Greatist for featuring an upper body circuit from the book

and to MindBodyGreen for including my tips for building a budget-friendly home gym!

Also, my TRX circuit was posted on the official TRX page. I’m honored and very thankful to have been included. <3

Hi! Happy Friday! How’s your year going? We spent New Years Eve together as a little family. I feel like New Years is so different each year: last year, we were at a friend’s party; the year before, I was uncomfortably pregnant and SO ready to meet Liv; and the two years before that, the […]
