If you didn’t know, now you do: I’m an Under Armour Women Ambassador and so freaking proud to be one. It’s a company with an incredible, powerful and inspiring mission to help women achieve their goals in and out of the gym. And I have to admit, each and every time I pull up my leggings or throw on a UA tank, I feel a little bit more inspired to perform, achieve and reach my goals.

There’s something about this brand that’s truly special. 

I figured it was about time for me to show off my favorite UA looks: from hiking and running to casual and chic. I’ve worn this gear running, hiking, biking, interval training at my gym, and pretty much everything in between. I’ll never look back and neither will you.

So let’s get to it ladies!

I’m backkkkkkk… and dang, what a trip! The weather was B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! Each day the blue sky sparkled without a cloud in sight while parasailers floated nearby. We played tennis, got massages, laid by the beach, swam in the infinity pool and drank WAY too many margaritas.

Of course, I’d have more photos to show you but my phone was stolen. Which was a little bit of a bummer, but then I said hello to the new iPhone 7. This little mama is happy.

Happy Friday everyone! Abra here, the Brand Manager behind Ambitious Kitchen and Instagram artist behind #abrassalad. As you know Monique is in Cabo soaking up the sun and enjoying some well-deserved R&R, so she left me the honor of introducing myself and sharing my weekend faves with all of you.

Not gonna lie, palms are a little sweaty…but I’m so excited to be here!

Skinny Jalapeño Watermelon Margaritas that are naturally sweetened with watermelon juice and a touch of agave. So easy to make and perfect sweet and spicy. The ultimate summer margarita! Options to make a small batch or a pitcher to share.

Happy almost Cinco de Mayo, friends!

I’ve been laying on the beach in Cabo reading books I’ve collected from Amazon over the past few months. It’s a terrible habit — you know, buying books, reading a few chapters then getting caught up in all my to-do lists.

But here’s something I recently learned about myself: I must take the time to read and listen to other human beings life perspectives on a consistent basis. I know this seems silly and maybe a little obvious, but the insight another person’s life experiences bring me keeps me grounded and thoughtful in my day to day adventures. It keeps me in tune to my emotions, to others and the ability to see outside of my every day box of life.

So, finishing all those books is now at the top of my to-do list.

The easiest slow cooker turkey tacos on the planet. Made with a DIY homemade taco seasoning. My go-to weeknight taco recipe!

HELLO FROM CABO! Life couldn’t be sweeter in my neck of the woods.

Wait, did I just quote Al Roker. WHO AM I.

Apparently I’m older than I think if I start quoting the weatherman from the Today show.

Looking for a delicious homemade whole wheat pizza dough you can make at home? Look no further, this recipe will be your new best friend.

I hope your weekend was as relaxing as mine was. We spent the better half of the weekend catching up on chores and packing for our trip to Cabo. I cannot tell you how excited I am. The last time Tony and I went to Mexico was over the 4th of July — it’s our little relaxation spot in the world where we can disconnect when life seems to be moving at the speed of light.

Before I jet off today, I wanted to share a recipe that I feel everyone needs in their life: 100% whole wheat pizza dough.

Hello hello. Welcome to the weekend friends. Yesterday I left for LA for a little meet and greet with Chef Curtis Stone & Bosch kitchen appliances. Since you guys know how much I love anyone who’s Australian, you’ll know that ME LOVE CURTIS STONE LONG TIME.

It does feel surreal to be back in California; it’s a little corner of the world I hold dear in my heart. It’s the place where I told myself that blogging could actually one day become my career, a place where I fell in love, a city that dazzled me from the beginning. And plus, the food scene out here is basically everything you could need. Indulgences, donuts, healthy food, acai bowls and all the sushi. I die.

You only need 30 minutes to make this amazing honey garlic salmon paired with Dole’s new fabulous organic Apple Dijon Salad!

Five years ago I would have been crowned the salad queen. Now Abra (AK’s brand manager) has taken the position that over. If you follow us on Insta, you know that we’ve adopted the hashtag #abrassalad.

Every day she packs the most delicious little lunch and meal prep concoctions: roasted brussels with goat cheese and chickpeas; kale salad with garlic and carrots, and a sautéed broccoli with chickpeas and cranberries. Can you say veggie inspo?

Delicious protein pancakes made in a blender with ingredients like potassium rich banana, protein-packed cottage cheese and oats! Nearly 20g protein per serving makes these the ultimate post workout breakfast!

Listening to the new Drake album gives me pure inspiration to get my booty out of bed in the morning, throw around twenty pound dumbbells at the gym (not literally throw) and make some legit protein pancakes topped with all da berries and nut butter.

Amazing fig and goat cheese pizza with caramelized onion, goat cheese and an easy homemade 100% whole wheat pizza dough made in partnership with Almond Breeze. Seriously sooooo good.

Well Monday, we meet again. After a weekend of binge watching 13 Reasons Why on Netflix and catching up on all things Healthy Glow. Co, I’m feeling a little bit better about life in general. Sometimes a little down time is all you need.
