Happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend. We spent Saturday up in Santa Barbara at the beach, shopping and eating at our favorite restaurant. Yesterday we just ran errands and had a potluck with our neighbors. It was a nice and relaxing fun filled weekend. Today it’s time to start getting ready for the week and prepping our meals. We’ve started buying ground turkey from Costco because it is so much cheaper there. That leaves me to come up with some creative ways to prepare it. I came up with these quick and easy ground turkey burrito bowls and they’re perfect for meal prepping or just for an easy weeknight dinner.
I hope everyone had a fantastic week! This was one of those weeks that each individual day seemed to take forever yet the week as a whole flew by. Does anyone else ever feel that way? Today we are gearing up for a 3 day weekend. Last weekend we met up with friends and family in Newport Beach and it was such a gorgeous day. We had lunch and hung out by the water for a few hours before heading back home. Planning the perfect beach outfit this time of year can be tricky since the weather changes every hour. It’s always a good idea to have a light layer handy.
It’s Workout Wednesday so today I’m sharing an upper body workout that I think you guys are gonna love. If you’re new to my blog, I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and the creator of The SoCal Fit guide. I created these programs for busy moms (and dads) like myself who need to maximize their time in the gym as well as their results. These workouts are not “gender specific” (trust me, this doesn’t exist) and are great for all ages and fitness levels and best of all each workout is less than 1 hour long and can be done from the comfort of your own home. *with the exception of the gym strength program.
Happy Monday friends! The spring weather is here to stay so I’ve decided to start sprucing up my closet for the new season ahead. It is pretty much always summer here in Southern California so I love wearing a lightweight shift dress and some comfy sandals or wedges all spring and summer. I had spotted this one last year and instantly fell in love. However, when I saw the $168 price tag I decided to pass.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! This is a very special time of year for my husband and I. We actually got together just 2 days before Valentine’s day and will be celebrating 12 years together this year. I know a lot of people think it’s just another Hallmark holiday but it doesn’t have to be. We should always take time to honor and appreciate the ones we love. I really enjoy taking this special time of year to do so.
The weather has been absolutely gorgeous around here for the past week or so and I’ve been loving it! We haven’t been to the beach in what feels like forever so we decided to head up to our favorite place, Santa Barbara, for the day. We spent the sitting in the sun at East Beach and then shopping along State Street. It was a beautiful day all around until our daughter started not feeling well. With all of this spring like weather, I was in the mood for some springy clothes.
