12/27: Friday Faves

24 rules for being a human being in 2014. <– definitely worth a read

Candles  1 of 1

These cute votive candles. Helps indecisive people like me try a bunch of new fragrances with minimal commitment, and they were a RueLaLa sale. Friday Faves has slowly become “Gina’s favorite candle this week.” 

Moccs  1 of 1

Livi’s Freshly Picked moccs. I’ve been wanting to get her a pair, and the 25% off Black Friday deal was the final nudge to order some. She adores her moccasins, and I love that the elastic isn’t tight (her Minnetonka moccs were too small around the ankle). I want some in my size ;)

Reebok  1 of 1 12

This comfy Reebok yoga tee. I ordered it using a gift card they sent, along with these slouchy sweats. They’re perfect to wear around the house, or over Boogie shorts for hot yoga.

Inspiration board time! It’s that time of year to get crac-a-lacking on visualizing your 2014. Where do you want to go? What are you going to accomplish? I’ll put the official call out next week, but if you want to get started early, pin your inspiration board with your goals for 2014. Be sure to include #inspirationboard @fitnessista so I can shout of some faves here on the blog! I can’t wait to see. In the past, I used to make my boards using paper and magazine cut outs, but alas, since the world is teching ahead and I’m still tapping morse code to write this blog post, I decided to catch up on the Pinterest train. We did it this way last year -and it was amazing!- but you can see some of my paper boards here and here

This contemporary dance how-to. I died laughing, and still think about, “Go to sleep, Bich” and snicker to myself.

Pom  1 of 1

Pom vinegar. TJ’s, you never cease to amaze me with your new creations. I love it on green salads with a crumble of goat cheese and sprinkle of hemp seeds. It’s tangy, slightly sweet and perfect on its own. I’m excited to use it in some veggie stir fries.

Sitting on the floor at madre’s house, with Livi and my two little cousins in my lap, all four of us wrapped up in a burrito blanket, watching Rescuers and eating kettle corn out of a giant bag. 

Winter Dream tea! I first tried this about a month ago in San Francisco (with Jenna and Julie) and fell in love with the almond milk tea latte. I’ve been making my own here at home, and it’s alllllmost as good as the real thing ;) I’m so excited we’re going to be close to Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf in San Diego!

Speaking of San Diego, we have to make a trip out there in the next few weeks to figure out where we’re going to live. It’s harder to visualize my 2014, since I have no idea what it’s going to look like, but I have a good feeling about it ;)

What are you looking forward to this weekend? Did you receive any amazing holiday gifts? I’d love to hear about your favorite part of this past week!

Hope you have a happy Friday <3

See ya later on the Family page.



New Fashion post from Meg with winter skin care tips!

Fancy feet {+ a new Zumba video}


Hiiiii Hope you’re enjoying the week so far! Livi and I had a great day yesterday and last night, I met some friends for yoga. It had been forever since I’ve taken a class, and mannnn, did I need it. My tight hips and quads were crying a little, but some namaste time has them […]

Chicken Cordon Bleu-ish


(More like “chicken cordon goat” but that just sounds weird) Hiiii Thank you for all of your wonderful feedback on our new YouTube channel! Thank you to all of our new subscribers — I’m excited to see the channel grow and post more videos. My legs are STILL sore from Saturday night’s dance party… guess […]

Quinoa Pizza Snack Bites


Some things you may not know about the Pilot: -He minored in Italian -He grew up in Arkansas and Alabama -He’s the third generation of military pilots in his family (His dad and grandfather- pretty incredible resemblance, huh?) -He doesn’t like quinoa… or squash. I knew all of the above facts except for the last […]

Cardiac Cats and Pinner Winners

cats (1 of 1).jpg

I had a feeling I’d be way too zonked to go to the Wildcats game last night. Thursdays can go one way or the other with my teaching schedule- sometimes they’ll be relaxed and passive classes, and sometimes I’ll get surprised with multiple intense teaches, which ended up being yesterday. I taught buff booty, DJ […]

Sock lopsided


Today was a great day, but I think the fact that I forgot a sock gave it a strange feel. While you’re teaching multiple fitness classes, it’s hard to forget that you’re only wearing one sock with your shoes. Didn’t feel very good. This did, though (coming home to snuggle my favorite girl) And this […]

Pretty pizza


Pizza and wine… maybe one of the best combos ever. Hand me a pizookie and it would be my dream meal. Last night, we poured some wine, set out the supplies and made “his and hers” pizzas. The Pilot rolled with garlic and herb crust, marinara, pepperoni and cheese while I made mine with gluten-free […]
