January 2016 Musical Cardio

Hi friends! How’s the morning going?? Hope you’re having a wonderful day! The weather has been absolutely gorgeous, so we’re going to hang out at the park before grabbing some juices. I’m so excited for the weekend ahead. It’s the Pilot’s “Friday” so it will be fun to have that one guy we like around. 😉

Some pics from lately:

Little Italy lunch with the Pilot and Miss P while Livi was at preschool:

Lunch w p

We tried Monello for the first time, and it was fantastic, Little Italy is swarming with delicious and authentic restaurants. Since I already found the best acai bowl bowl in San Diego, it’s now my mission to find the best pizza and tacos before we leave. If you have any inside info, please let me know. 😉 Caffe Bella Italia in PB still has the top spot for pizza, but this was a close second.


We had our lunches with green salads,


and bowl of seasoned lupini beans.  

Some roses the Livi picked out:


 (I’ve been really into unique bouquets lately, and love this one she picked out with a head of cabbage in there.)

and a gym pic from testing out a PBB strength workout. It has been really hard for me to get in my own workouts with everything going on -I feel like we have a doctor’s appointment or something else happening every day- and I’m really thankful that all of these workouts can be done at home. It’s been a lot easier for me to sneak in a bit of strength training when I can. Since I was at the gym already to teach spin, I used that as my cardio and did my 20-minute PBB strength: 10 minutes before class, and 10 minutes after.

Here’s the playlist from last night, along with some cardio guidelines if you’d like to use it for your next workout. You can use these ideas on any mode of choice, whether it’s the treadmill, spin bike, elliptical, or Stairclimber.  Of course, David Bowie was on this week’s playlist. “Under Pressure” has been stuck in my head for 4 days now. <3


(RPE scale 1-10. 1= taking a nap, 10 = sprinting your heart out, and/or max resistance)

August 2015 Workout Playlist

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? Lately, I’ve had the worst time getting moving in the morning which I think is could be due to the third trimester slump. Caffeine, I miss you! Yesterday was a lot of fun and packed with activities. I joked about getting lost in the IKEA maze, and we really […]

Summer Shape Up Wrap-Up + Throwback Spin playlist

Hi friends! How’s the day going? Mine started off with a sweaty BODYPUMP class, and then I came back home for breakfast with the madre and Liv, and a trip to Nordstrom Rack to ride the train outside. (I was like, “Woooo!” and Liv was like, “Mom, stop.” haha.) It was a great day to […]

June 2015 Yoga Class Playlist

Hellooooo. How’s the day going?? I’m a little later blogging today because I had a dentist appointment (always a joy) and then met up with a friend for brunch. We had Naked Cafe, and the soy chorizo and egg white tacos rocked my world. I want this every day. Ice cream with my best girl:

Spring Solo Spin Workout (+ playlist)

Hiiiii. What have you been up to today? I’m just returning back to the world after totally crashing out while putting Liv down for her nap.

January 2015 Cardio Playlist (+ Musical Cardio workout)

Hi! How’s the day going so far? I taught a fun BODYPUMP class and took Liv to her gymnastics class, which is basically the cutest thing I’ve ever seen in my life. The Pilot and I are into our little detox, and while the day has been relatively normal for me, it’s also my “chocolate […]

30 minute cardio playlist

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 Playlist + solo spin sesh

Hi! Happy long weekend! Hope you fun plans ahead for the holiday. We’re grilling with friends and hopefully I’ll get to do a little paddleboarding adventure. 😉 I’m also teaching spin again!
