Now that’s my kinda candy 😀

I started this lovely holiday with a Fitnessista bfast cookie:


(1/3 cup oats, 1/2 banana, 1/2 T AB and another 1/2 drizzled on top, 1 T carob, splash almond milk, sea salt, Stevia, vanilla)

and a 5k road race:


I ran with my friend Meara, and even though it thoroughly kicked my booty, I finished in 25:10 (clock time) and 24:53 (watch time). I was pretty stoked, especially since I walked a couple of times. Meara and I definitely pushed each other — when I started to walk and she ran past me, I knew I had to catch up 😀 Oh Georgia, you make running very interesting with your 80% humidity 😉

When I got back to the casa, I took a showa –I was a sweaty beast!- and then made an overcooked organic egg puff (whoops!)


(Love the WINE PLATES! Thank you again Nana)

And some comfy carob drink:


Scrumptious snack


Then, I proceeded to crawl onto the couch and finish the Time Traveler’s Wife. What. a. book. To be honest, it took a second for me to pull myself together to write this since I was crying like a baby (hence the “bawl-o-ween” title), but it was beyond amazing. I highly recommend it if you haven’t read TTW yet. The movie really doesn’t do it justice.

Well I’m off to stretch these muscles and do a 60 minute yoga podcast, then running some errands and spending the evening drinking vino with the girls 🙂

Have a SAFE and very Happy Halloween!

Heyyyy 😀 Happy Indian Food day! Who’s celebrating?? I’ve kind been slacking on the Wednesday Indian food tradition lately- both of my usual Indian food dates (Jeni and the Pilot) are out of town. I might ask one of the girls if they’ll hit up the buffet with me sometime very soon 😉 Very interesting […]

Just Like a Circus

There’s only two types of people in the world The ones that entertain and the ones…   ….who stand by appalled to see a CIRCUS in the parking lot of the gym. For real! There’s a full-up traveling circus in the shopping center where one of the gyms I belong to is located. Something tells […]

Rest in peace, iPizzle

Helllooooooo 😀 How are ya doing? A good friend died today: I will say it had a long a full life.
