Fashion Worm

Hi friends! Happy Saturday! How’s your day going?

I had A NIGHT last night.

The Pilot and I were talking on the phone, and I was Googling celebrity style tips (love copying celebrity fashion). Next thing I knew, I horrible worm was attacking my computer :/ The Pilot and I worked together for 3 hours to get the worm off, download new anti-virus (the worm wasn’t letting me open ANY programs!) and get it all fixed.

Lessons:

-I’ll never use Mozilla again

-I’ll follow the directions when my anti-virus tells me to update

-Will Google celebrity fashion stuff from my phone

In the whole process, I learned that my computer has over 400,000 files (168 were corrupted and are now fixed)!! Insane in the membrane.

This morning, Bella and I slept in, enjoyed some b-fast (the quinoa cereal I told ya about the other day. Gave it another try = still nast) and then I was dominated by a Pilates class at the gym.

I haven’t taken Pilates in forreeeevvvverrrr and boy oh boy did my abbies feel the burn.

MY OTHER VIDEOS

It’s funny because when I started the little blog, I was totally a Pilates  girl. I hadn’t discovered studio yoga (studio yoga is often > gym yoga) and practiced Pilates a few times a week. Today, I was really excited to take my favorite guy’s class here in Tucson (the one who I would see after a night out with friends… and black feet), but he wasn’t there 🙁 The other instructor was excellent, and it felt so good to stretch and get in some great toning work.

Snackage was a protein muffin.

These are more like a soufflé than a muffin. Very soft and light from the egg whites, but very unique and delicious. I think they’d be a thousand times better with some chocolate chips thrown in 😉

When they cook up, they expand like crazy too- I thought it was going to overflow.

This afternoon, I’m going to see my madre so she can fix my eyebrows (they’re looking a little rough… and unibrow-ish. Hawt), and heading to a friend’s house for taco and Brad Pitt night. 😀

Have a lovely day <3

PS. The POD arrived in Georgia today! The Pilot is in the process of going through everything and said he’ll send me some summer clothes I have in there. I love him so much 🙂

Something to talk about:

Are you more of a Pilates or Yoga Fan?

    I’m definitely more of a yoga plan – I liked Pilates, but I definitely practice yoga for its mental/emotion benefits as well as physical – I have never had the same experience with Pilates!

    Hi Gina,

    First want to say I highly respect you and all the information you share about fitness. I’m just a little tired of reading about how gym yoga classes are less than studio. I teach at two gyms and feel I am a GREAT teacher. I’ve taken studio classes that have SUCKED! So, please consider this when you continue to spread the myth that gym yoga is “bad.” It’s all about finding a teacher you like…you can find a good teacher at a studio OR gym! Thanks!

      I think the rationale behind this type of myth is that a lot of gyms dont understand qualifications behind yoga instructors. Sure, you can get a great yoga instructor at a gym, but you can also get someone uncertified who picked up a few tricks from yoga DVDs. Allowing these types of teachers to have jobs devalues the people (like myself) who spend thousands of dollars and months getting certified through a yoga school and also changes the meaning of yoga (not to mention makes people think that paying $4 for an hour yoga class is acceptable). There definitely is more to the argument than gym=bad; studio=good. And I dont doubt that you are great teacher, but I think we need to be open to what the entire situation – on both sides.

      i agree that there are good gym yoga teachers.. but in all of 8 years of taking classes, i’ve only found one, so you have to understand where i’m coming from. i’d love to take yoga in a gym setting if i could find a good, legit teacher here in tucson
