My miso paste-eating friend

Hey everyone! Hope you’re all having a wonderful Friday so far :D

I started mine with an avocolada sludge:


1/2 avocado, 1 banana, 1/2 cup fresh chopped pineapple, 3/4 container of coconut water, smoothie infusion, sea salt, Stevia, vanilla and a little cinnamon.

It was scrumptious—so creamy and thick, that I had to eat it with a spoon :D I like feeling like I’m having a milkshake for bfast ;)

I spent a good part of the morning cleaning the upstairs and our casa is now spotless, and then made some lonchi.

Raw Party Wraps


Looks like a party on a plate, ehh?

I took romaine leaves and spread chickpea miso on there and topped each leaf with cucumber, bell pepper, carrot, and a drizzle of almond butter.

I love the miso/almond butter combo:


Nutty + salty = lip smackin’ good

When I got into work, the other trainer (who is Novice Mr. Georgia—pretty darn impressive) decided to ask me what I had for lunch…. I was like “Are you sure you want to know??”

So I got to explain miso paste to him and my romaine wraps while he devoured a plate of Southern BBQ ;) He was like “that’s cool Gina Pina, my miso paste-eating friend”

Are there any *weird* foods you’re loving right now??

When I got home from training appt #1 (I took her some Super Charge Me cookies) and 35 minutes ellipticizing and back and biceps with Jeni, I grabbed a snack and took the puppies out.

Mango and kiwi:


I want summer fruit ALL year!!!!!

Well I’m going back to work and will probably go to the movies with some friends when I get out.

Have a great night!



*I asked Jeni for the cheesecake recipe and she said she would email it to me.. and that I could share it with you guys :D So expect a delicious recipe soon!

Today’s tip: Make sure you’re alternating high and low intensities for your cardio workouts. There’s no point in going balls to the wall everyday, which is a major reason why I take it pretty easy when I’m not teaching. Remember *change creates change* (my motto) and doing the same thing (in this case, intensity) every day is not going to shock your muscles into seeing the results you’re looking for. That’s why it’s a smart move to alternate sprints with steady state, hills and flats, etc. etc. blah blah. :D Shake things up a little!

Wining and dining

HAPPY WEEKEND, YA’LL!! I’m SO GLAD Friday is finally here! Last night’s girls dinner was ahhhhhhhmazing.
