About Erica

Hi! I’m Erica and I’m so happy you’re here! Sprinkles and Sit Ups is your go-to guide for healthy (and sweet) recipes, workouts, and fun.


I’m a bodybuilder. Not quite Arnold Schwarzenegger (flex), but I like to lift weights and eat carbs (really any excuse to eat pancakes makes life better). I’ve strutted on stage in a bikini competing and it was the scariest thing I’ve ever done. I’m a yogi, runner, and healthy-living advocate. I love a nutritious, veggie-packed salad, but can’t resist a fresh out of the oven chocolate-chip cookie. It’s all about balance.

You’re probably here because you’re looking for a healthy recipe or even a new workout. Well, you’ve come to the right place. Sprinkles and Sit Ups is all about my two favorite things–fitness and food.

I started Sprinkles and Sit Ups because I love connecting with others through fitness and healthy living. My goal is to help others live happier, healthier lives, and if I can do that with a dash of sugar and a pinch of sweat–well, that’s icing on the cake.

I love how fitness challenges us, makes us stronger (both mentally and physically) and introduces us to new people (sweaty friends are the best). I’m that person at the gym who introduces themselves, takes a sweaty selfie, and gets to know everyone. On the blog expect fun workouts, fitness challenges and events, and studio visit recaps–in San Diego and on my travels.

A foodie at heart, I am always on the hunt for a new healthy spot I haven’t tried. I’ll be serving up some healthy recipes, cheat day favorites, and must-try dishes around San Diego. Stay tuned for yummy ideas.

A few things you should know about me are: I entered a half-marathon a day before race day to impress my boyfriend (now my husband), I’ve competed in two NPC Bikini bodybuilding competitions, my dog’s name is Macaroon (did I mention I love sweets?), and the key to my heart is through laughter and good food (more specifically–frozen yogurt).
