Cheese Allowance + Fashion Friday

Hi guys! Happy FASHION FRIDAY 😀 Hope you’re having a fabulous day <3

We didn’t end up watching Princess Bride last night since the Pilot and I had to wake up early, but hopefully we will tonight! I’m even more excited to see it after reading your comments.

B-fast this morning was in two parts:

Part 1 (before teaching bootcamp)


Millet with almond butter, apricot preserves and 1/2 a banana

Part 2 (after teaching)


Egg-stada with 3 egg whites, goat gouda and Texas Pete

Every week, I have a cheese splurge when I go grocery shopping. I usually roll with goat gouda (which I LOVE and we don’t have raw goat cheddar in Valdizzy), but since it’s so pricey, I consider it my cheese allowance 😉

Speaking of allowance…


Something I’m loving:

Exposed zippers 😀

Are you rocking the exposed zipper trend this season??

Well I’m off to walk the puppers and then get to work!

Have a wonderful day <3



Today’s tip: Next time you’re iron pumping, try to alternate the *cadence* of your reps– try going down for one count, up for three. Then down two, up two and down one, up one. Anything you can do to change things up is a good thing 🙂 Remember *change creates change* <3

    Oohh, I think exposed zippers are so sexy! I have this one black skirt that I refer to as my “going-out skirt” and it has the zipper running down the back. That is a trend that I definitely can stand behind.

    I love the exposed zippers trend too. I have a few high waisted skirts with exposed zippers and I adore them!

    I have a weekly cheese allowance too. I live 2 blocks from a fab cheese shop that always samples new kinds. I’ve gotten a honey goat cheese (tastes like the best cheesecake on earth)and this week they were sampling a chocolate & bourbon goat cheese, it tasted like a truffle! They also have goat milk caramels!!!

    Hi Gina – is there a simple way to get to your first blog post? I’ve recently started reading your blog, and now I’m really curious about how it all started 🙂
