I am in love with this trench coat right now. I love ruffles. Forever and ever.
Description: Double-breasted styling, layered ruffled hem, and classic buckle action and collar make this bebe trench coat a femme-chic wardrobe staple. Throw it over a simple dress and go! Center back to hem: 33”.
Umm just in case you didn’t see this yet, watch as a baby attacks me on the beach while I was filming my BEBE SPORT sizzle piece. Getting bullied is no joke guys. Be strong.
HOT OFF THE PRESS!!! It’s POP Pilates HOT ABS!!!
Get ready to have the flattest abs of your life with music from Britney “I Wanna Go”, Casacada “San Francisco” and Lady Gaga “Edge of Glory”.
By the end you’ll wish that Gaga would just STOP SINGING for the life of you.
Also, in other news…one of my fave brands since I was in high school, BEBE just launched their newest BEBE SPORT Collection! I did a really cool 1 min vid talking about my fave looks from their new line. Because animal print is transitioning over from Spring to Fall, they decided to go cheetah, red cheetah actually, for August! What do you think? Too much? Or genius?
That’s all I have for you right now. If you want the printable to the POP Pilates HOT ABS workout, you can score it right here - just click on “CHEETAH” on the left hand side and you’ll see it in the banner.
Love you all! Sweat fashionably :P
1. Tricep Dip ‘n Kick:
Targets: Triceps, legs
A. Begin with your fingertips facing forward with your butt raised. Lift your right leg off the floor, keeping it parallel to the ground.
B. Kick right leg straight up as you bend your elbows back. Then return to starting position.
Try 10 with the right leg and 10 with the left!
Modification: Do not kick! Keep both feet on the ground as you perform just the tricep dip part of the move.
2. Bridge Pulse:
Targets: Butt, quadriceps
Lie down on your back and raise yourself into a bridge position with feet side by side. Keeping your butt up, raise your right leg towards the ceiling. As the leg stays extended, lower your butt halfway to the floor and pulse right back up.
Try 20 quick pulses on the right and 20 on the left!
Modification: Perform this move in a regular bridge with both legs hip width apart, feet on the floor.
3. Ballerina Twist:
A. Begin in a side plank with hand directly under your shoulder and legs full extended. Raise your right arm up and elongate your fingers like a ballerina.
B. Pretend you a “threading a needle” and bring your right hand through the “eye of the needle” underneath your oblique as you raise you pike your hips up. Return to side plank.
Try twisting 10 times on the right and 10 times on the left!
Modification: If your shoulder or wrist hurts, try this move on your elbow. You can also modify by doing the side plank on your knees instead of your toes.
4. Inverted Shoulder Press:
Start in plank and walk your hands towards your feet until you can’t come any closer without bending your knees. Look at your feet. Now do a pushup.
Try 12 pushups.
Modification: The farther out your hands are from you feet, the easier.
5. Butt Ups:
Targets: Core strength
A. Begin in plank on the elbows, keeping your tailbone tucked and your belly button sucked in towards your spine. Make sure your back is flat!
B. Then, using your core, pull your abs up and your pike your butt up into the air. Hold, then release back into plank.
Try 12 butt ups.
Modification: Do the plank on your knees instead, and for the pike simple press your butt back instead of up similar to a Child’s Pose.
6. Runaway Abs:
Keeping your belly button sucked into your spine and your low back pressed into the floor, extend your arms long behind you head and your legs long and pointed in front of you. Your shoulders should be off the mat. Now begin “running” - your feet should flutter up and down quickly.
Try 20 flutters.
Modification: Keep your knees slightly bent with your head down, hands underneath your tailbone for low back support.

K, off to do a 4 miler with the sister and then lots of prep work. I ate some steel cut oats and blueberries for bfast. So yummy. It’s been over 1.5 weeks and I am still going strong as a vegetarian. I love it. I am able to taste my foods so much more and I am feeling lighter even though I have introduced a bit more carbs into my diet than normal. I’m preparing for my 1/2 marathon on September (the Disney Princess Half in LA) so this is why the diet requires more carbs for energy. I am still doing more research into healthy vegetarian meal plans. Will have to do a big kickoff video of this veggie revolution. Big recipe video coming soon!
Ahh so many things on the plate. K sister is yelling at me to get off the comp and run with her.
Farmer’s Market & BEBE Haul
We both decided to go Vegan today. I got the Tempeh salad ($9.75) and Sarah got the Mock Chicken Salad ($10.75). Both were VERY delicious. Of course being food bloggers, we had to snap pics of our meal before devouring. It’s almost like a foodie’s way of saying grace ;)
Mock Chicken Salad, sweet and nutty.
My Tempeh Salad. Divine. We both did not even touch the rolls on our plates ;)
Also, I wanted to mention my Pilates friend and colleague Jennifer Phelan from Equinox. She teaches a Pilates Fusion class that is similar to my POP Pilates. Our boss told us to meet a while back when I first started at Equinox, but we never got to it til today!
Man we hit it off. Talking at dangerously high speeds, we were so excited to be sharing exercise philosophies and talking about how we think that the whole music/Pilates combo is the next big thing. It’s always so nice to meet someone who you can mesh with so well!
For those of you living in Boston, Jen is hosting a free Pilates in the Park event on June 26 from 10-11am in the North End. She’s a great instructor and this sounds like fun!
Ok well, lots of video editing to do for this book giveaway I am hosting for Nutrition Diva’s “Secrets for a Healthy Diet”. I need the contest to start tomorrow!!! Will also film some more workouts this weekend. Suggestions for target areas? On facebook, looks like everyone wants a new back video! Give me your input Tumblrs! Cuz seriously, your feedback is DIRECTLY where I get my ideas for the workouts you see next.
