Bow Pose with Oikos and a GIVEAWAY

Hey everyone! Hope youโ€™re having a great night <3

Thank you again, so mucho, for all of the wonderful birthday wishes!!! You made my day a million times brighter and Iโ€™m so fortunate to have found bloggy friends in all of you ๐Ÿ˜€

So on top of the celebrating (which Iโ€™ll re-cap tomorrow!!) I did some birthday yoga in a toga.


With Oikos!

You guys know, Iโ€™m not a huge fan of dairy. I prefer goat cheese and almond milk over cow dairy any day, but the pilot on the other hand, is a dairy fanatic. I keep a ton of milk, yogurt and cheese stocked in the fridge and you can bet your booty itโ€™s organic. Organic farming is SO important, especially for those of us who care deeply about the quality of fuel weโ€™re putting into our bodies. This is why Iโ€™m a HUGE fan of Stonyfieldโ€”they work so diligently to reduce their environmental impact which producing high quality organic products.

So that being said, I showed the Oikos some yoga love today.

    Some of the nicest people I know have birthday’s on November 12! :):):)

    Have a great day!

  10. Lisa on November 12, 2009 at 8:33 pm

    Yet another first time commenter – happy birthday!!

    Thanks for all of your fabulous posts that inspire me in Australia, your approach to life is so much fun even when your pilot goes away. My husband often goes away for work and I hate him being away too. He’s an elite athlete (who also has a day job) so he also has a hot body, but he works hard for it!

    Anyway enjoy the rest of your day, can’t wait for another year of your awesome blog xx

    As lovely as you look in that toga, that picture of the hottie pilot leads me to think that you oughta slip into your BIRTHDAY SUIT stat (you can still do yoga of a sorts, nudge nudge, wink wink)

  34. Adriana on November 16, 2009 at 3:52 pm

    I saw this recipe and thought about you!

    P.S. A while ago you mentioned eating a verly light cheesecake that one of your friends had made for a girls night I believe and said you would post the recipe later. I don’t think you ever did. Or maybe I missed it. Is there any way you could post it again? Thanks!

    • Fitnessista on November 16, 2009 at 9:37 pm

      i still haven’t gotten the recipe from jeni — i’ll ask her for it when i see her tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Adriana on November 18, 2009 at 4:08 pm

        Thanks! I just really really want to try it. I can’t get it out of my head!
