Asana Kicking

Hey guys 🙂 How are you? Thank you so much for your amazing comments about the new inspiration board– I’m really excited to see what this year will bring <3


I just got back from an asana-kicking Bikram class. I ended up skipping spin this morning and figured I’d take yoga since I haven’t practiced Bikram in about a month. Man, oh man, did I feel it. The instructor wasn’t very friendly and I can definitely see why it’s easy to be intimidated by Bikram. Word to the wise: try different instructors—some of them are actually very nice. (Like Rob in Jacksonville, FL)

Some recent eats:


Goat’s milk yogurt with Sun Warrior mixed in, organic bluerries, a blob of almond butter, cinnamon and a crumbled brown rice cake

Take-out from Eclectic Cafe– tostadas with veg refried beans, avocado, salsa, and goodies (I asked for no cheese but got a little sprinkle anyway)

Blackberries galore:


An entire thing from Trader Joes. If my skin turns purple, ya’ll know what happened 😉

This afternoon, I was inspired by my new Canyon Ranch cookbook to make some flatbread dough.


I figured I’d make it, split it into portion sizes, and freeze in case the roomies or I wanted a flatbread.

The recipe kinda got eye-balled, and I used brown rice flour and gluten-free oat flour (ground up in the Vita-mix). Despite my lack of measuring, the dough turned out lovely.

We’ll see if it’s still lovely when I try to bake some right now 😉

I’m off to make some dinner, but I’ll see ya in the morning!

Have a great night,


Something to talk about: What are your thoughts on TVs in the bedroom? The Pilot and I have always banned TVs from our room (the guest room, living room and office each have one), because the bedroom is for sleeping, relaxation and.. other stuff 😉 For the first time in 4 years, since I’m living with roomies, I have a TV in my room! It’s been nice to fall asleep to Chelsea Handler’s voice 😀 So what do you think? TVs ok in the bedroom, or banned?

Fall Foodie Mood

Hey guys! How’s your morning going? <3 I started mine off with a dip into the almond butter jar and a Bikram yoga class. Bikram was tough stuff this morning. It’s been a few weeks since I’d practiced and my body definitely let me know. My back is going to be a little sore, but […]

Foodgasm Panino + Saturday Bootcamp

Good morning 😀 How’s your Saturday treating you? Hope you have something fun going on today <3 Last night was a blasty. I took a stanky, sweaty, triumphant Bikram class and then we took the puppers to the dog park. The Pilot walking Scamp around 😉 (I think Viesa is a little more his style, […]

Just dare me, Curry

Hey hey hey 🙂 Happy Monday! Hope you’re having a great morning <3 The little sisters are happy to be reunited. I was so excited to pick up Vies! She jumped up and kissed me on the mouth, haha. Viesa smells like a corn chip from being at the kennel (they play outside a lot), […]

The Big Manzana Part 3

Hi guys!!! Happy Tuesday 😀 I love shorter weeks! Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day and took the time to think about those who have fought so valiantly to protect our way of life. We had such an amazing time in New York. The shopping (!), food, sights, drinks (heh) were all incredible. We […]
