It was a beautiful day for a picnic!

We met up with Jessica, Whitney, and their kiddos for a playdate at the park. We brought snacks to share, the kids had a blast playing, we got to chat and catch up, and it was a lovely morning.

I packed up some chopped strawberries and chia pudding to take with us,

along with these easy delicious muffins (with dried cranberries and orange zest).

Packed everything up in the bag with some ice packs and our U of A blanket, and we were ready. :)

Later today, I have a double dipper: teaching BODYPUMP and Zumba right after each other. I’m glad it’s a mix of strength and cardio, but pray for meeee. I’m going to chill for a little while before heading off to teach, but in the meantime, I thought I’d share some of all-time fave interval training songs.

With cardio intervals, I usually do one of two things: set intervals (based on time or distance), or I play musical intervals. I like to go along with whatever the music tells me to do, and not only does it kick boredom in the face, but I tend to work harder when the music inspires me.

There are certain songs out there that are particularly amazing for sprints and high intensity intervals. Take it easy during the verses, and go full out during the chorus.

Hi guys! How’s the morning going? Hope you’re having a great day so far! Last night I taught spin, which was a lot of fun. It also felt like an ideal amount of time, because it was the first half of a spin/TRX combo class. (Not able to teach the TRX portion right now.) The […]

Musical Cardio Workout


Morning! How’s your day going? We replenished a small amount of the weights stash last night. Pretty much everything made it here to San Diego without a hitch, but we’ve been unable to track down my dumbbells. My 35 lb kettlebell made it, along with my jump rope and spin bike, but I like having […]

Hi friends <3 I finally took my first studio yoga class since we’ve moved here, and I’m pretty sure it’s one of my new yoga hOMes. Many readers have recommended Happy-U Namaste in Ocean Beach, and I knew that I wanted to give it a try. It’s right across the street from my beloved Tiki […]
