Baby Got Back and Biceps Workout (+ video tutorial)

Hi friends! Happy almost-Friday! I’m back today with a quick and killer back and biceps workout. I’ve received a lot of requests to start focusing on specific muscle groups, especially since that’s one of the strategies I prefer in my own routine. (I alternate between dedicated muscle groups and circuit workouts.)  Back and biceps are…

Hi friends! How’s the day going? Thank you so much for chiming in with your productivity tips this morning. Speaking of productivity, mine has been LOW today… because it’s 1:30pm and P is taking her first nap.

Upper Body HIIT Blitz

Hi friends 🙂 Glad you all got a laugh from our fail of the week (year?). I’m still snickering about it. Monday was pretty good to us. Liv and I ran errands and shared a Jamba Juice, went to her baby gym class, the day ended in bubbles: and last night, I got the chance…

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…

You stay classy, San Diego

After an afternoon of driving, the Journey station on Pandora, lots of reminiscing and goofing around, many stops to stretch my swollen ankles (and randomly seeing a friend of mine at a California gas station!) we made it 🙂 It’s absolutely GORGEOUS here. It’s been quite a few years since I’ve been to San Diego…

It had to happen. After posting about the dark chocolate almond milk yesterday, you guys started flooding my brain with amazing chocolaty almond suggestions. I knew it would be good in smoothies and baked goodies, but hadn’t even thought about heating it up to make hot chocolate or, as Vanessa suggested, steeping mint tea in…

Pilot’s Day Off

Hey! Happy Monday <3 Hope your week is off to a great start. I’m a little later than normal with today’s morning post, but the Pilot took the day off work, so we’ve been hanging out. He has a ton of leave saved up (92 days, some of which he’ll lose if he doesn’t use),…

Hey friends! How has your Friday been? Up to anything fun this weekend? I just saw Lion King in 3D with a couple of friends. It’s funny because when I saw the commercial that it was re-released, I was like “Ohhh! I want to go see it!” And then today after making plans, I was…
