5 Days of Galentine’s (Weekend in San Diego)

San Diego Long Weekend I was hungover, but I dragged myself to SD Sweat Squad’s event: 20 minutes on the Versa climber and 20 minutes of Lagree. It was a daze and hard, but I sweat out the hangover! I was pretty tired from the week – overworked and underfed – so I took myself to sushi. Normally, I sit at the bar, but I … Continue reading 5 Days of Galentine’s (Weekend in San Diego)

Winter in Big Bear & Mammoth (+ San Diego)

January (and February) brought some new adventures – snowboarding, skiing, and lifting (“training”). I’m enamored by all the newness and I’m so proud of myself for saying ‘yes’ to going on the intermediate slope while snowboarding and ski lessons. February has slowed things down a bit and I’m a tad concerned about keeping up the momentum, mostly at work, but I know I’ll get through … Continue reading Winter in Big Bear & Mammoth (+ San Diego)

2020 & January Intentions

Mom coined my back, I took Advil and … Continue reading 2020 & January Intentions

Sunday Bests: All the Holiday Coffee, Cookies, & Cheer!

This week was fueled by coffee, sometimes a Christmas blonde roast from Starbucks and some fancy holiday beverages. Let’s be honest – I don’t like cooking and when I do cook, I have far too many leftovers. I have basic foods during the day (oatmeal, eggs, protein shakes), but when it’s nighttime or the weekend, I yearn for more and try to keep it healthy. … Continue reading Sunday Bests: All the Holiday Coffee, Cookies, & Cheer!

Sunday Bests: A Lot of Miles & Traffic

I might’ve spent 7 hours driving to Carlsbad and LA (twice). It was worth it for the most part, but I was exhausted by the end of the weekend. I’m currently writing this in bed with a face mask on while watching Matt Does Fitness. After a long day at work, I immediately drove to Carlsbad for the Dames Collective Launch Party. I changed in … Continue reading Sunday Bests: A Lot of Miles & Traffic

Sunday Bests: 5 Years of Teaching and Too Much Wine

Last week was the close of year 5. I remember how I wanted to teach high school in Huntington Beach, but a different opportunity came around and it has been perfect. Perfect doesn’t mean it was easy. Perfect means It’s closer to home – 20 minutes instead of 45 minutes! I came in with 12 other new teachers and we keep in touch even though … Continue reading Sunday Bests: 5 Years of Teaching and Too Much Wine
