Fitness gear for the new year

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful morning. My blogging schedule may be a sporadic this week -I’m ok but going through some medical stuff- but I wanted to stop in and say hello. 🙂 I’m so excited to share some fitness plans, tips and inspiration as we head into the new year and have […]

steam + spin

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? Hope you’re having a lovely day. Don’t forget to check in with your workout here for Winter Shape Up! I’m so stoked you guys are loving the full barre video.  Check out the STEAM after spin last night! We packed the house and it was an awesome, sweaty session. […]

Fiesta Friday! New Zumba video (Don Juan)

Hi friends! Happy Friday! I’m so happy you liked the Focus On post– I always love to write about different class formats! I also love guest posts about fitness topics/classes that I’m not as familiar with, so if you’re interesting in writing one I haven’t covered, please let me know. Yesterday, I had the chance […]

Hurry for the curry

I ran 9 miles yesterday morning. It was awesome.   And by awesome, I mean terrible. I just didn’t have my running mojo. It was a rough night of sleep -I always do that to myself when I know I have to wake up early- and when I got in the car, I realized I’d […]

Cranberry avocado salad

It’s rare for me to have a case of the moan-days, since I love being able to spend the day with Liv. We’ll do the usual thing (play, read books, go on a fun adventure. meet up with friends or just take it easy) and yesterday, I only had one thing in mind that I […]

NEW Arm Burner

Welp, we ended up at Urgent Care with the Pilot and his twisted ankle.  The good news is that it wasn’t busy at all, the Pilot has a pair of crutches, and Liv was a champ, even though it was past her bedtime. She had her first real dose of a movie- they were playing […]

9/7: Friday Faves + Your Pics

-Rose, in the form of my all-time favorite tea  (Tulsi sweet rose- try it, you’ll love it) and this little bracelet from H&M- $6!   -Girls’ night. I took two of the lovely ladies in my life (madre and nana!) and also met up with some girls from work to see our friend Susan perform […]

September HIIT IT Workout

Can you believe it’s September already?! (turning leaves or bad watering job? I’m gonna go ahead and guess the latter) While it’s definitely bittersweet to see summer ending as fall begins -even though Fall doesn’t reallllly start in Tucson until at least Halloween- September always makes me think of football games, apple recipes, jeans and… […]

Indian Spaghetti

Rainy night, Indian food on the couch = not too shabby. We made a little stop at Saffron to get takeout for dinner, and per usual, it was everything I could wish for. I’m so excited that we found an Indian restaurant in Tucson that we LOVE. Chicken tikka masala, dal mahkani and chicken vindaloo […]

7/20: Friday Faves

-A killer interval workout with Meggie We went for a little run, did some BodyRock-esque intervals (50 seconds on, 10 seconds rest) of single leg jump squat,, jump forward and back burpees, core domination, side lunges, repeat 3 times, and then some upper arm strength training. The end. -Hopefully today will be my last day […]


Dinner at our house has been pretty chill the past couple of nights. Since there have been at least 10 people eating at any one time (my family is huge!), we’ve just been setting out different meal components, building plates and munching as we please. When I got home from work, my mom, nana and […]
