Tuna salad stuffed avocado

Hiii! How’s your St. Patrick’s Day going?? To get into the spirit, I played two St. Patrick’s Day-ish songs during spin last night:

1) “Whiskey in the Jar” (standing climb with tempo work)


2) “Lord of the Dance.” This was the last song of class, and everyone seemed to get a kick out of it. It was PERFECT for half moderate climb, half crazy sprint to the end, and a festive way to change up the playlist.

For our viewing pleasure:


 (the version I played for class was different -it’s the last one from the soundtrack, with taps- but you get the idea)

Random fact: my Irish dance teacher from back in the day BEAT Michael Flatley in the World Irish Dance Championship in 1989. 

It’s been a good St. Paddy’s Day so far. Hand therapy was AMAZING -I’m so so happy I’m finally able to go, and it’s helping so much- and then I had a lovely morning with my favorite little leprechaun. She helped me make the brownie cupcakes, which we’ll top with Bailey’s frosting (for the adults) and spinach-dyed green frosting for the kiddos. 

Quintessential green beverage:



(juice with green apple, spinach, cucumber, celery, ginger, lemon and mint)

Lunch was leftover tuna salad from yesterday, served in an avocado. Liv went crazy for it, too! Ok, so at first she was a little skeptical (because, let’s be real, it kind of looks like cat food).

Then, I told her that Ariel from The Little Mermaid LOVES tuna. She happily ate a bowl full, while I realized what I’d just said. Ariel eats her friends. Mom fail.

Bring on the madness


March Madness is officially heeeeeeere. I look forward to this all year, and it always go by so quickly! Trying to savor it. I’ve spent some time this morning working on my bracket, and do this every time a Sportscenter announcer says they believe Arizona will make it to the Final Four.   (This is […]

Friday Faves


Hi friends! FRIDAY DANCE! What are you up to this weekend? We have some fun events to look forward to: a birthday party, night out with friends, and farmer’s market/relaxing.  Last night, the Pilot met up with some of the guys, so Livi and I got ready for a little mama-daughter date at Ranchos (<— […]

Cauliflower bread grilled cheese


This is what happens when I say I like Daylight Savings: -we all have an impossible time waking up and getting out the door this morning -I forget Liv’s gymnastics outfit at home -I step in dog poo. Isn’t it so violating when that happens? Some good things from the day: -BODYPUMP was awesome this morning. […]

working on my mussels


Lots of seafood ahead… But first, these bunnies! I picked them up at Home Goods as an effort to add some Easter-ish decor and they look just like the foil-covered chocolate bunnies. Sadly, there is no chocolate inside, but they’re pretty cute. How was your weekend? Hope you had a great one! On Friday, we […]

Kettlebell circuit workout


Hi friends! How’s the day going? Hope you’re having a lovely morning. <3 I’m a little later posting today -did get some Livi-isms up on the Family page- because I had an appointment and hit up the gym for an easy run.  Current snack fave: chia pudding! I’ve been making it with almond milk, cinnamon, […]

Luscious grain-free lemon cake


Hiiii. How’s your Monday going? We’ve had a lovely morning. Still tons of rain, a sweaty BODYPUMP class, and Livi’s gymnastics class, which is one of my favorite things ever.  So, there are a few customs I wish the US would adopt. #1: the siesta. WHY CAN’T WE HAVE A NATIONAL SIESTA? My family is […]

Superfood Energy Bars


Hiiiii How’s the afternoon going? Monday in a nutshell.  I figured I could really use a cup of Joe, so I made a cup and begin enthusiastically shaking what I thought was cinnamon into the mug. Red pepper flakes. I finished off the jar. I don’t even know.  The rest of the morning was less of […]

Back in the (spin) saddle + a CORE40 giveaway


 Hi friends! How’s the morning going?? Hope my friends up in the northeast are staying warm. <3 After traveling, it always feels nice to get back into the routine, and teaching is a huge part of that. BODYPUMP was packed since we just launched the new release. It was my first time teaching these tracks, […]

Hi! How’s the afternoon going? It’s been a great day with my little sidekick. This morning involved playing birthday fairy, which involved a solo trip to the mall. It was luxurious to smell candles with both hands, and I loved picking up a couple of birthday surprises for the little lady. (PS all she asked […]

Crispy Chocolate Coconut Protein Bars


This is just ridiculous. Before we talk protein bars, let’s talk about The Bachelor. DID YOU WATCH IT?! Are they really trying for ratings this season or what? The tupperware joke. I’m still cringing bahaha. I loved that they saved the normal people for the last round, for the most part. Good TV.  So, yesterday […]
