“Spin it to win it” playlist + SD adventures

Hi guys! How’s your day treating you? We’re enjoying a relaxing afternoon after a fun morning at the San Diego Zoo.


(Meerkats —> Lion King —> this honest trailer)

It’s my MIL’s first time in San Diego (and first time at the Pacific Ocean!) and we’ve been taking her to some of our favorite spots. High on the list: a beach morning and lunch at Hodad’s.

At hodads

Hodad’s is an incredible burger spot in Ocean Beach, and since it was featured on the Food Network, it’s always packed. Usually there’s a line wrapped around the building. The walls are adorned with license plates and surfboards, the staff is super chill and friendly, and they blast surf music like “Tequila” and Beach Boys while you happily stuff your face. The burgers will BLOW YOUR MIND. They also have veggie burgers, and wrapped in lettuce with all the sauces and toppings….


it’s everything. Everryyyyyything.

(Also check out the “fring basket” in the background. Fries and onion rings! It’s huge and glorious)

It was a little interesting walking around the zoo today after this week’s teaching adventures. From Bodypump, to spin, to double barre classes last night, my legs are feeling the burn. I think they’ll be happy to shake it out a little in Zumba tonight.

After leg day


Here’s my updated playlist after using some of Jeffrey Scott’s suggestions. I went to Spotify and found Julz Arney (who is a powerhouse Equinox instructor) and got some great new song ideas from her, too. Here’s what this week’s playlist looked like:

Spin it to win it playlist


It was sweaty and glorious as usual. We have new heart rate screens in the club, and it was my first time wearing the instructor pod. They’re a valuable tool to have in classes, especially when you’re first learning how to gage your intensity level. I also like that they’re optional; if you enjoy checking out your stats, you can use one, and if you’d prefer to skip it, NBD.

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! When I taught last week, I was super nervous -it had been forever since my last class but decided to go in there with […]

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 […]

Spring 2014 workout playlist


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 […]

Back at it + a new Zumba playlist

pho (1 of 1)-2.jpg

Afternoon pho. The best kind Pho hack: I saved some of the broth from takeout -they always give us extra- and added cooked chicken, more cilantro, sriracha, and boiled TJ’s rice noodles. Speaking of the chicken, it’s probably the best chicken I’ve ever made. This is the recipe. It’s super easy, makes the house smell […]

“Burn it to earn it” playlist


Hi friends! How has your Monday been? Livi and I ventured to Whole Foods for juices,   and then to the eye doctor to get my eyelash situation figured out. The verdict? Small cut on my eye, likely from the eye pad. Drops for 5 days, which means glasses for 5 days. Womp wooooomp. I […]
