Monday Rundays

I was so excited to write this post saying that I conquered my 10-miler this morning. Alas, was not the case.  (I’m pretty convinced that 10 miles = my distance nemesis) I didn’t get home too late last night -had a blast with the girls, though- and was going to wake up super early to…

11/18: Video of the day

It was a perfectly lazy and lovely Sunday. We walked at Sabino Canyon while the Pilot and my stepdad ran, enjoyed time hanging out at the house and fought the urge to put up Christmas decorations, even though they’re beckoning to me. The highlight of the night was teaching at a Zumbathon to raise funds…

11/18: Meals and Fitness for the week

Last night, I decided to take the new kicks out for a spin. I think it’s because I got my Zumba class covered yesterday- all of this Saturday energy was bottled up 😉 Wednesday’s class was fun enough to last for two, though. My fave moment? A guest came up to me afterwards and told…

The other side

After years of my devotion to Asics, I crossed to the other side. Also after a little too many years, I got my stride checked out again and picked up some new kicks. My current Asics are toast, so new cushion feels sooooo nice. The real test will be tomorrow’s long run- here’s hoping that…

Gina: Boots and blazers

Remember when I was super excited about my Old Navy sale spree? Page the fail whale, because it wasn’t as glorious as I’d anticipated. I’d give it a 2/3 for the fact that I liked the tops and the dress a lot more than expected, but the things I was most excited about (the jeans!)…

Slumps and Faves

I was in a little bit of a slump yesterday. I loved hanging out with my little sidekick after work but after she went to sleep, I had a decent amount of time to be productive before bed. I just wasn’t feelin’ it. So instead, I painted my nails and watched Glee, which ended up being…

Healthy Chocolate Sauce

Things have been very savory on ye ol’ blog lately. I can’t even remember the last time I posted a sweet recipe! Please accept this as a token of apology. I was thinking about a chocolate sundae ALL morning yesterday. Usually after teaching Zumba, my thought process looks something like the following: -That was SOOOOOO…

10 Months

Almost a year with my favorite little thing. How did I live without her for so long? Here are 10 things about 10 months: 1) Teeth! Two more just popped out last weekend, bringing her grand total to 6. Part of me misses her little newborn gummy smile, but I love her little teeth even…

Cranberry Quinoa “Stuffing”

Why must turkey be the official Thanksgiving mascot? It makes me sad because I know so much work goes into preparing an entire turkey, but to me, the meal could do without it. This is also coming from the girl who prefers deli meat over roasted. *Hides head in shame* We were at Eclectic Cafe…

Intimidating Fitness Moves

Ok, so have you ever wanted to try a training plan, saw a certain move and thought: ehhhhh, I think I’m gonna go ahead and skip that? That was an initial hurdle for me when I first started to get into fitness and weight training. I checked out a few plans online, was pretty stoked…

Mini Goat Cheese Chili Relleno Casseroles

Hi 🙂 Catching up from the long weekend? I ran my first postpartum half marathon. I’m wicked sore, but am happy to be back in the game. Thank you again for all of the wonderful birthday wishes, too! Chili rellenos were never my favorite Mexican dish. If I was going to have Mexican, which was…
