Even though I have fitness ADD, I have loved yoga for a very long time. I may not practice as often as I’d like but whenever I do, it’s like going home again in more ways than one. When I’m back in NYC, I have a few favorite studios like Laughing Lotus (my original kula) and Prana Power Yoga but in Los Angeles, I’ve found my West Coast kula at Stadium Fitness Yoga in Pasadena.
Even though SFY is part of the Stadium Fitness (as in Rose Bowl Stadium) family from last week’s 5 LA Fitness Experiences I’m Dying To Try post, this post is NOT sponsored. I just love SFY. Read more
It’s Tunes For Tuesday and I’m featuring They Might Be Giants…again. I featured this quirky band covering one of my favorite drunk dancing songs, “Tubthumping” but they have so many gems that I needed to feature them again.
I’m a huge fan of TMBG’s album “Flood” and the whole album definitely qualifies “eclectic” but “Birdhouse in Your Soul” is happy and pop-like. I’m not sure that “Your Racist Friend” would go over so well with the general public as my featured song.
I love that TMBG has transitioned into a kids band as well (even though Wild Boy could never get into them) but TMBG holds a special place in my heart – it’s the first concert I ever went to with Jay. We’ve seen them many times since then and they’re always fun.
Did you ever call TMBG’s Dial-A-Song? If you didn’t, read about this amazing answering machine service that went dark in 2006. It was awesome!
Finally, I’m giving you the scoop about the Fitness Magazine Blogger Meet & Tweet in Los Angeles! I was lucky enough to attend the first M&T in NYC in 2012 (back when I was solely a mean Tweeter) and I’m glad that Fitness Magazine decided to spread the love westward and invite me to this amazing event!
Yes, I’m behind on my #FitBlogLA post but today is Simon Le Bon’s 55th birthday and it deserves to be acknowledged! What kind of SLB fan would I really be if I didn’t at least write a short post?
Unlike many other fans, I never loved LeBeard and you might remember that I had a little blog party when he finally shaved the Ringmaster ‘stache but I still absolutely love this man!
Ever spend a ton of time on something only to hit a wrong button on your computer and make the whole thing disappear?! Well, then you understand why there will not be the full write up of this week’s Fitness Magazine Blogger Meet & Tweet LA (aka #FitBlogLA) today. I promise the full deal on Monday but as a preview, I’ll give you this…..
There were friends from FitBloggin’, FitSocial and some amazing chicks from my blogger tribe, the So Cal Lady Bloggers!
There was very interesting health and fitness advice from leaders in the field that included:
And you’ll die when you see the quality of swag. The sponsors were so incredibly generous but you’ll have to wait until Monday for all the juicy details.
Thanks for being patient with your technologically challenged friend!
BTW, this Sunday is Simon Le Bon’s 55th birthday (yes, it even sounds old to me)!
If we’re friends on Facebook or you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, be ready to see some SLB birthday love dedications. Last year (before I ever let a soul know I was secretly writing a blog) I wrote this post to my fake rock star boyfriend on his 54th birthday.
You can go throw up now….but don’t forget to come back on Monday!
