Give ’em a rockin’ bod for Christmas

December 8th, 2014 No Comments

Amazing body in a bikini

Every year I do one looooong gift guide.  This year, you’ll get five different lists based on MTM daily themes.  Monday has been and will always be fitness.  And who better to be the model of hot bod than my SOULCYCLE rider and HOT 8 yoga enthusiast Amanda. Here’s what I love about her lifestyle: she exercises once a day, eats right, works hard, and doesn’t overindulge.  Hence her lovely backside :)

Now, there was a time when giving a gym membership was considered insulting. However, with the advent of our private studio addictions – whether it be SOULCYCLE, pilates, yoga, barre, etc – giving a pack of classes is the perfect gift.

Here are options for my favorite studios around that I know your peeps will love too.

For more studios in your area click here and THE BEST deal on a package hit up GROUPON or GUILTcity.


If you live in one of the cities below you can buy a CLASSPASS.  This allows them classes at any studio that is affiliated.  They can go to each studio 3 times a month!  The links below will take you to a map of the city with the studios pinpointed.

Now, if you’re looking for something more tangible, I suggest:

Time to get your butt in bikini shape

April 1st, 2013 3 Comments

If you haven’t already been sunbathing over spring break :)

In this video I show you 4 exercises other than your basic squats and lunges that you can do to tone up your glutes.  Reader Anne wrote in and said that squats and lunges cause pain in her knees, and she would love to know glute exercises that didn’t.  Between my trainers and a physical therapist, we came up with these 4 that are great at isolating your glutes.

You can do them with or without weights.  As I am trying to build up a little muscle back there, I use heavier weights:  10-20 lbs.  I also have to be mindful of my lower back which inhibits me from going heavier, but you can!

Also check out this squat-row combo  and this video for more ways to tone up your glutes.

Finally, I have to apologize for the production value of this video. The girl who helped me was so sweet to shoot it, but it didn’t come out the way I had hoped.  As the years pass somehow it’s getting harder to find people to help me shoot these things…..

(Video head to toe: bead head hair, Nike top, Lululemon pants, Reebok shoes)

Per your request, my head to toes

June 19th, 2012 2 Comments

Last week when I posted my Head to Toe, I got several email requests for more info on what I wear everyday.  Honestly, I haven’t done this in a while, really since I left LA, because my outfits aren’t as exciting as they used to be.  You can imagine as a consultant who lives in the south, works from home, frequents the gym, and cooks often, I don’t get dressed up often!

I always encourage you to write me and ask questions, so now I will answer your request!

Going from top left clockwise.

Movie Night:

BBQ party:

Saturday Golf:

  • Nike tennis top
  • Assests cami
  • Nike tennis skirt
  • Havianas

I ALMOST forgot to snap this pic and jumped out of the car before we took off, hence the flip flops.  After the game I played I was anxious to get outta there :) If you’re a golfer, I highly recommend tennis clothes instead of golf apparel.  Much more comfortable and flattering.  More of my golf outfits here.

Client Dinner:

The finishing touch to this outfit was the bright pink lipstick that, for some reason (probably just that my iphone sucks), you can’t see.  If you’re going to wear dark neutral pieces, I always use a pop of color in my lipstick or jewelry.

Pretty much what I wear everyday:

Because I wear workout gear most days, I try to jazz it up a little bit so I don’t look like a total gym rat. If you’ve been with me for a while you know I love scarves.

Date Night:

  • Claudia Lobao hoops
  • Gold and lapiz heart necklace
  • BCBG dress
  • Theory long spandex tank underneath
  • Bone bracelet from Vietnam
  • Dolce Vita heels

To each couple, their own love.

My friends Becca and David got married this morning!!!  Both head to toe in Lululemon.  In front of the Starbucks.

They met at Starbucks, and David proposed there.  One day last week, they decided it was finally time to get married, and Starbucks was the obvious choice. A text invite was sent to their friends and that was it.  Wedding planned!

Surrounded by a group of friends and complete strangers who just wanted to witness the joyous event, they exchanged heart-felt vows and were legally married within minutes.

The scenario wouldn’t be my choice, but it wasn’t my wedding.  The point is that they loved it.  It suited their style.  So many people get caught up in the fanfare.  Who cares.  The point is to love and laugh and be genuinely happy.

I believe they nailed it :)

Lulu for life.

If only the Lululemon bag said, “drink juice!” Maybe then I wouldn’t be a whopping 3 days delinquent in my green juice quota ;)

That’s right, I have yet to finish 8oz of juice after only committing on Monday. I must really be anti right now….but I have been eating more salads, so that’s good.
