Tuesday Night Book Club

Heyyyy 😀 Happy Indian Food Wednesday! How’s your morning going?

After work yesterday, I was so stoked to hit up a Bikram class.. just because I could! In Valdosta, I couldn’t do Bikram on a random Tuesday (unless I wanted to drive two hours), so I’m definitely taking advantage 😉

Post-yoga snackage:


Chocolate cherry bomb dot com 😀

-1 C almond milk

-1 scoop vanilla Sun Warrior

-1 T raw cacao powder

-1 C frozen organic cherries

-Stevia, vanilla and cinnamon

-1/2 banana

Eight months later and I’m still not sick of this smoothie- it’s that good, I promise 😀

After my smoothie, shower and making my cousin a grilled cheese, I met up with my aunt and her friends at OLV for book club.

Discussion Riesling:


We shared the mezze plate:


Tzatziki, tabbouli, baba ganouj, hummus, falafel and pita


and the most beautiful Chevre salad with greens, beets, mango, toasted pecans and goat cheese


I had a lot of fun chatting with all of the ladies, even though I haven’t finished the book (Sarah’s Key) yet. After hearing what they had to say about it though, I’m not sure if I want to finish it :/ It sounds really disturbing and I’m so engulfed in this book right now that Sarah’s Key may take a back seat:

Good to great Source

Has anyone else read it? In an almond shell, Good to Great is an incredibly well-researched book examining the tactics of companies that maintained their incredible financial performance for at least 15 years. There’s a lot of knowledge you can take from the book and apply to your job and to life in general. Loving it so far 😀

This morning I’m off to a meeting for work, sending a care package to that one man I have a crush on, and taking a Zumba class!! I’m going to wear all of my Zumba gear and talk to them about teaching while I’m here 🙂 Hopefully it will *work out* – I miss teaching so much!

Stay tuned for a guest post from a very special someone….

Going out to eat for Indian Food Wednesday?? Here’s a post for Indian Food Newbies 😀

Something to talk about: Are there any fitness classes you can’t wait to try but aren’t offered near you?? I am SO excited to try Rebounderz- an indoor trampoline workout. We didn’t have it in Tucson and it looks like a lot of fun 🙂

Something else to do: If you’re in the voting kinda mood… here’s the link and my Entry #1 post. Thanks so much to those of you who have voted already!

  1. It seems like so many book club books these days are so sad! I’d much rather read something happy and lighthearted.

    Rebounderz sounds so fun! I used to love trampolines as a kid and I never realized how much of a workout they are!

  2. Just read my other favourite fitness blog and found an article regarding your posting-it’s like a 2 for 1 🙂 http://www.glamour.com/health-fitness/blogs/vitamin-g/2010/09/afternoon-snack-the-fitnessist.html

  3. Good to GREAT is one of my favorite books!
