Take a deep breath and just press "send"
Nike had it right when they said “JUST DO IT” because seriously, sometimes you just need to do it. Alot us love to plan - plan our outfits, plan our day, plan our career, plan our love lives, plan our wedding, plan for potential outcomes, plan for Plan A, plan for Plan B, and plan for Plan C. Yea and then what happens? By the time we have it ALL PLANNED OUT, we’ve lost...

POP Pilates: Sexy Back Workout
Hello Hello! Back workout is the number one most requested thing coming in my youtube inbox nowadays. It is tough to do a really thorough back workout on the mat without using equipment so I tried to balance out mat vs. prop time in the session for those of us who may not have bands yet. In this video, the first half does not require anything, while the 2nd part asks for a resistance band. If...
takemebacktowoodstock-deactivat asked: hey girl. thanks for the follow. and whoa how have i NEVER seen your videos?? i have recently been on a huge fitness/getting an amazing body for school kick. and i LOVE your vids. :)
Anonymous asked: I know you're very busy and you have a lot of requests but I hope you don't mind answering a question of mine. Or two hahha lol. I was doing some research on standing ab exercises just to put a little variation in my ab workouts and noticed there wasn't much clarification on whether they do work the muscles and sides of the stomach. Would it be a waste of time to do something like...
Anonymous asked: when and through what program did you become pilates certified?
Anonymous asked: I'm new to Pop Pilates and don't know much about you! Do you teach pilates anywhere, and if so, where? =)
Why does my cereal tell me that its basically a...
The nutrition label on my Total cereal tells me that 1 cup of these cinnamony crispy squares will give me 100% of over 10 different vitamins and minerals. I thought to myself, odd, because if so, why do people even need to go through the process of swallowing pills? But how does the cereal get fortified with all of these vitamins? Obviously someone injected them with the goods. Well, it turns...
Black rice vs. Brown rice - who wins?
“Just a spoonful of black rice bran contains more health promoting anthocyanin antioxidants than are found in a spoonful of blueberries, but with less sugar and more fiber and vitamin E antioxidants,” says study co-author Zhimin Xu, associate professor at the food science department at Louisiana State University Agricultural Center in Baton Rouge.

Fabulous Ruffle Coats
So I kind of went on an Anthropologie rampage the past couple of days. It’s bad, I know! But I have this new philosophy that if I were to buy anything, it better be something I will LOVE forever. Something that will make me smile and make me feel good every single time I put it on, even if it is not on sale (gasp!). This is a big step for a girl who used to swear by clearance racks. So vain,...

Photo of my stomach insides
I was inspired to post this after seeing DailyCandy’s post on “You Are What You Eat”, which was in fact inspired by photographer and bartender (apparently) Mark Menjivar at a San Francisco Art Exhibit. Your fridge reflects your soul! An opening into your daily luxuries. This is a treasure chest we stock every week. And don’t you ever just find yourself opening the...
Mat Slings are coming, very, very, soon
A few updates. I have decided to go for my reformer certification. I’ve been wanting to do this for while, so now that my club is offering the opportunity to enhance my teaser skills, I think it is time to take a deep breath, hand over the credit card, and get ready for some serious Joseph Pilates education. Apparatus, here I come! I’ve also been BodyPumping it up. My arms have never...
How to Make Vietnamese Spring Rolls (super lean...
I always looked forward to spring rolls night as a kid. The effort that it took to stuff lettuce, vermicelli, and tender beef slices in each and every one of my hand-dipped rice papers, made the little creation so delightfully satisfying. Once dipped in my mother’s savory hoisin/peanut butter sauce, it was like perfection in my mouth! As I got older, I began to eliminate a few ingredients...
