How much cardio is too much?

Hi friends! How’s the morning going?? Hope the start of your week is going well. We’re having an amazing time in Tucson, especially since we don’t have a lot of official plans. We’ve hit up the pool, got to meet up with some friends Monday night, and last night, we had an incredible dinner at my aunt and uncle’s house. For today, we’ll probably swim for a while and see what my dad is up to. Also, huge congratulations to the winner of our Bitsy’s giveaway: Katie S. The lucky winner has been emailed. 

For today, I thought it would be fun to tackle a very popular reader’s request:

how to take a break from working out, without going crazy

Does anyone know the answer to this? Please kindly respond in the comments below. The end. Just kidding. But not really. 😉 Taking a break from the gym, especially when you’re finally feeling good/better and want to move, IS HARD. It’s hard when you have a baby and would love the endorphins and time for […]

10 ways to deadlift

This made me laugh way harder than it should have. Ok, currently I don’t either. 😉 (You know, that whole “6 weeks of rest” thing.) But we’re in unusual circumstances right now, and usually, I LOVE lifting. Like in a weird way. One of my all-time favorite exercises: the good ol’ deadlift. I have to […]

things that have helped me streamline the sugar

Hi friends! It’s ALMOST THE WEEKEND. This week is flying by, and I have no problem at all with that. I’m looking forward to the weekend ahead with plans with friends and some birthday celebrations.  I also promised Liv that we’d hit up the beach this afternoon since the weather has been dreamy. Happy St. […]

Spring clean your fitness routine

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? I am still recovering from returning from Vegas + Daylight Savings. Not a good combo, but in Vegas, time doesn’t matter. 😉 It was totally worth it. Miss P thinks that waking up at 6:30, which is really 5:30, is pretty hilarious. We jumped right back into things on […]

What to do if you’ve never worked out?

Hi friends! Happy humpday! The weekend is in sight. 🙂 How’s the day going? It’s been a little crazy over here -I had to get blood drawn which took 18 years and our shower broke in the “on” position- but I had some time to pop in and say “hey” before heading out to teach […]

keeping the momentum going

Hi friends! How was your weekend? Hope it was wonderful and relaxing. Ours ended up being a bit of a whirlwind, but it ended up with madre here for the week, so all is good. As usual, Livi FREAKED when we picked her up at the airport. Her happy giggles make my heart so warm. […]

Health and fitness: splurge vs. save

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? Hope you’re having a great week so far! This week is flying by, and I love it. Liv also has the week off preschool, which is why my blogging schedule has been a bit more sporadic than usual. We’ve had a lot of fun adventures this week, but man. […]

What to do when you only have 20 minutes to work out

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? Hope you’re having a wonderful day. <3 It was such a blast having the fam here this weekend and they’re headed back to Arkansas today. We got to take them to some of our favorite San Diego spots, enjoy the lovely weather, and watch the cousins play. So much […]

Giving back this holiday season

This post is sponsored through my partnership with Bitsy’s Brainfood.  This is such a fun, magical and lovely season. I’ve always been obsessed with the holidays, and find that it’s even more enjoyable now that we can share it with little ones. Now that Liv really *gets* it, each passing year seems to be much […]

Healthy Holidays

Hi friends! Hope you’re enjoying the morning. <3 We’re relaxing at the house before P’s doctor appointment, and I’m going to head out for a long walk. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous. I’m also stoked to start digging out our Christmas decor.  Ahhhh I love this time of year! This is when I can […]

Intro to Ayurveda: Grounding Vata

Hi friends! Happy almost-Friday. 🙂 We are back from the hospital (wahoo!!) and starting to get in the swing of things. Thank you again for all of the lovely wishes this week, and hanging in there while we’re getting settled as a family of four (six with the pups!). This week, I have some special posts […]
