Hey there Fall!

Ah, my favorite season is here! Pumpkins, cool nights, gold/brick/and orange leaves, the best apples, chai tea, and hearty soups. Mmm, yum there’s so much fantastic produce in season during the Autumn months: Squash, Pears, Cherries, Brussel Sprouts, Cauliflower, Persimmons, Pomegranate, Turnips, on and on and on mmmm. I can’t wait to start cooking it all 🙂

Not that it really looks like that much in LA..

This time of year is good for my fitness because I can run at any time of day and not be overheated, plus it’s not too cold in the morning – sometimes when it’s too chilly I’ll just reset my alarm and curl up under the covers a little longer. Wow, I’ve really acclimated to Southern California, huh? “Too Chilly” is like 40 degrees and I used to run unless there was ice on the ground…Confession: I was wearing a sweater last night and it was 70 degrees..ha.

Do you follow the Tone It Up girls at all? They’re just kicking off Week 3 of their Frisky Fall challenge – 6 weeks left, you can still join up! They give away weekly prizes for hash tagging instagram posts – and it’s always fun to feel like you’re being supported and encouraged. Though that happens more with their community. And everything’s freeeee – the best part 🙂 You CAN buy their dvds or nutrition plans but it’s not required.


Did you have an epic weekend? Mine was pretty lovely – ate at some restaurants I hadn’t been to before, returned to a couple I enjoy.

Friday night was dinner at South End, a little wine and pizza bar in Venice – I was pretty excited about their Sangiovese – very flavorful, the 2012 Grillesino offered notes of red cherry, grilled plum, sage, licorice, boysenberry, vanilla, coconut and cedar.

Saturday I treated my roommate to lunch at our favorite Ramen place in West LA – Chabuya Tokyo Noodle Bar. It’s inexpensive and has a super tasty Veggie Miso Ramen. Super tasty and MASSIVE!

And Saturday night I headed back to Venice with my best friend for dinner at Scopa. Well, it ended up being more wine than dinner – but that’s what Saturday nights are for, right? The best Saturday late nights were started with a liquid dinner…the Sunday mornings though…eh.

I decided to kick my ass anyway and headed to Kinetic Cycling on Sunday morning for Spase’s 10am class. Kinetic is offering a September special – if you’re a current client and head to a new-to-you instructor’s class it’s just $10. Pretty good considering even with their largest bulk package, classes run $15. Ha, Spase’s class is a tour de force – lots of group dancing and him singing along to the pumping remixes. He’s fantastic with encouraging everyone in his full classes and following up with new attendees. I got a FB message this morning with the mix he played yesterday! Love that – always looking for new music to workout to.

Well have a fantastic week – did you hit any fun restaurants this weekend?

What’s your favorite group workout?

How do you feel about Wine for dinner on Saturdays???
