“Viajar es más que ver lo que hay para ver; es iniciar un cambio en nuestras ideas sobre lo que es vivir que continúa en nosotros de manera profunda y permanente”. – Miriam Beard

HOLY FUCK IT’S BEEN OVER 4 MONTHS SINCE I’VE UPDATED MY BLOG
I’m sorry, I am a baddd person
I still feel very excited to be travelling, and I still feel excited to continue. So here I am! Sitting in a coffeeshop in Medellin (well…actually it’s a printing shop with a tiny table, but close enough), with the intention to relay some of the experiences I’ve had these past few months.
I have some random “journal” entries that I have kept, so I ...Continue Reading →
Sat 2/13/16 Connection Rio + Paraty + Happy Hammock
Since the last update, I moved from Jabanga Hostel in Botafogo because it got sold out for Carnaval. Also, RFT was going to be closed too, at least partially, for Carnaval, so I accepted this. Also, I was curious to check out Connection Rio, as well, which is where I was headed.
Saturday I moved to Connection Rio in Barra Da Tijuca. It is a neat concept ...Continue Reading →
Today in the morning I took the Pro Luta Livre class. I considered NOT taking that class, because I feel I am not at the appropriate level for the class, but I took a look at the schedule and nothing else in the morning really looked enticing, so I just decided to stick it out a few more days til I ...Continue Reading →

Lovelies! Let me catch you up on what tha dilly.
After some existential crisis, I decided to do some travelling. Nothing like a good ole fashioned existential crisis to shake things up. I sold my car, gave up my housing, put my clients under the care of other trainers, put my stuff in storage, and disconnected my phone to save money while abroad. I drove down to San Diego to be with my family for the holidays and get things in ...Continue Reading →
Bigggg shout out to my client Kayla, who has done an amazing job transforming her body. She recently competed in her first ever figure competition, and snagged 2nd place in novice! Go, Kayla!
We did the slow and steady route, and essentially did a 3 month PRE prep, and then did an official 3 month contest prep. Even with that much ...Continue Reading →
Part I: Pineapple House in Canggu
After 27 hours of travelling (though not a bad 27 hours, I might say), I arrived at Pineapple House in Canggu, Bali. I was welcomed by Rachel, a delightful British girl who is running her surf and yoga retreat based out of Pineapple House.
My time there was a bit more isolated than I had expected, but I made the best of it and read a lot of great books. (I read seven books in ...Continue Reading →
Wow. All I can is…wow.
I had such an incredible time. The combination of everything..it was magical. Big Sur is so incredibly beautiful.
Then on top of that, Esalen is such healing land, with so much healing that has gone on there, that that is the nature of the land. They had clothing-optional hot spring hot tubs on the cliffside, overlooking the ocean, that were amazzzzing. I went 2-3 times every day for its healing.The food was grown from the ...Continue Reading →
Hola my loves!!
I know I have not been posting, but I figured it would dilute a fitness blog if everyday I talked about my heart project! 😉
So I wanted to give you a guys a break, but YES I have been continuing the project! Sadly (lol) I don’t feel like I have made HUGE progress in the typical Kristina style of “I came, I saw, I conquered”…but I think the very act of effort toward a goal is valuable, and ...Continue Reading →
