A night with Vies

Hiiiii 😀 Happy [Superbowl] Sunday 😀 Still have no idea who’s playing today, but I know there will be snacks and that Glee is on, so that’s all that matters 😉

My night was spent like this:

It was SO so good to hang out with the Viessy and the amazing family who adopted her. When she saw me, she cried, leapt into the air and kissed me on the mouth. Vies is so happy and looks beautiful- her fur was full and shiny, and she had a silly grin on her face all night. She loved the attention from everyone (my brother was over there, along with his girlfriend’s family). It was amazing to scratch her belly and get slobbery kisses and puppy hugs from her. As I drove home and was talking to the Pilot, I told him I would feel guilty taking Vies home with me because she’s so happy with her new family. It’s like she’s been with them all along 🙂

Here’s a pic of the black bean spaghetti for those of you who were interested:


You can find it at Whole Paycheck (aka Whole Foods) in the Asian/ethnic aisle. It’s not by the regular pasta, which makes it a little tricky to find. It’s worth the hunt for 20g of protein, though! 😀

This morning, I had a quick breakfast:


Pumpkin Breakfast Quinoa

-mix of red and reg quinoa

-1/2 C organic pumpkin

-1 scoop nasty Dr protein + 1 scoop delicious Sun Warrior

-almond milk and cinnamon

I’m off to a photo shoot and then meeting up with the fam!
Are you cooking for Superbowl Sunday? What’s on the menu?

See ya later today!

    I noticed that the “subscribe” link on your site is broken. Is there another way to subscribe?

      it’s been broken for a while 🙁 i’m on the hunt for a new web designer that can re-vamp my blog and fix it

    Aww those are some cute pics! She is such a gorgeous dog and I’m glad to hear she’s happy in her new home, yet still remembers you so happily! I LOVE my dogs!!
    That black bean spaghetti sounds good. I wonder if they carry it at Central Market, which is closer than Whole Foods.

    It always amazes me how excited the dogs get but know they cannot leave/stay with you. How happy they are at their new home. That picture of the two of you says it all. I bet your heart feels great knowing the decision you made was the PERFECT one.

    GO STEELERS! (Even though I don’t have any clue what the rules are for football and never watch a game). 🙂 My boyfriend is making some pasta thing with vegetables and we’ll probably watch reruns on E! I’m hoping for Kardashian and Holly Madison fun! <3

    Aww that’s so good that Viesa is happy with her new family. That must make your decision to let her go at least a little easier! 🙂

    I saw that pasta at a health food store last week and I almost bought it! But I have sooo many boxes of pasta in my cupboard already that I need to use up first haha.

  6. Sana on February 6, 2011 at 7:03 pm

    So proud of you for making the right choice 🙂

  7. Jasmine on February 6, 2011 at 8:11 pm

    WOW i need to go buy that black bean spaghetti!! is it basically like regular spaghetti? what sauce would you recommend?

    • Fitnessista on February 7, 2011 at 12:17 am

      any sauce- it tastes just like reg pasta 🙂

  8. Niamh on February 6, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    Agggh, why is there no whole foods in Ireland. I’m not a pasta fan, but I like anything black bean so I’d be willing to try it.

    I’m so glad that Viesa is contented in her new home. 🙂

    Ohhh, a photoshoot! What for?

  9. Julie (A Case of the Runs) on February 6, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    Interesting noodles! I will go spend my “whole paycheck” on them!!

  10. Barbara on February 6, 2011 at 10:42 pm

    ahh, viesa! do you think bella misses her too?

    • Fitnessista on February 6, 2011 at 11:54 pm

      yes. she’s been WILD lately

  11. Jess@atasteofconfidence on February 7, 2011 at 12:59 am

    aw so glad your pup is doing well!

  12. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on February 7, 2011 at 8:21 am

    Wow, that is some very cool pasta! Gonna have a look for it next time I’m there. I wasn’t really cheering for anyone in the Superbowl.. I was more interested in the half time show!

    Took the day off from being mindful about food, so we had cowboy beans (5 kinds of beans, ground beef, onions, green peppers, a lot like a chili) and I had a few beers to get me thru the game – how exciting my team won. Was a great game. Wanted to call into work with the green and gold flu this morning, but my Midwestern work ethic won and I am here anyway! Take care – your puppy really looks happy, I’m so glad you’re at peace with your decision to split the puppers. Looks like everyone wins on that front.

    Take care

    We had a big Mexican buffet for the Super Bowl–it was alot of fun! I am surprised you didn’t celebrate with Indian food 😉

  15. Liz on February 7, 2011 at 10:53 am

    aww I can imagine how happy you must have felt seeing her cute face! I love that she was so happy to see you.

  16. Amanda on February 7, 2011 at 11:48 am

    How cute! What kinda dog is Vies?

  17. Kate on February 7, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    Awww Viesa! So glad you got to see her and that she was so excited to see you!

    Yum! I’ll have to try that black bean pasta! I’ve been wanting to try the bung bean pasta too – which do you think is better?

  18. One Healthy Apple on February 7, 2011 at 3:05 pm

    I’ll have to look for that black bean pasta- have to find some fun new ways to sneak in some protein and this looks really good!

  19. Katie on February 7, 2011 at 6:10 pm

    I would love those black bean noodles – being a vegetarian – that would seriously make my day!! 🙂

  20. Simply Life on February 7, 2011 at 6:59 pm

    i love the idea of having quinoa for breakfast- thanks for the reminder!

  21. Katelyn on June 18, 2013 at 8:12 am

    I stumbled on this old post of yours and Vies looks so happy! She’s such a pretty girl.
