Burrito Bootay

Heyyyyyy ๐Ÿ™‚ How are you doing? Hope youโ€™ve had a lovely Sunday!

We didnโ€™t make it to the pool today, but were super productive and got some chill time in ๐Ÿ˜€

Mid-afternoon, I snacked on an organic applesauce with cinnamon

appl sauce

and then had another one. It tasted SO delicious- applesauce is extremely underappreciated ๐Ÿ˜‰

While we were out and about, we grabbed linner (lunch/dinner) from Moeโ€™s

(Welcome to Moooooooooeโ€™s!)


(Well, first we stopped at Pita Pit, but the Valdosta Pita Pit never has wheat pitas, so we peaced out and got Moeโ€™s instead)

I always seem to forget about Moeโ€™s. Usually itโ€™s because I feel like I could make the exact same burrito at home, but the Pilot LOVES it.

I rolled with a black bean burrito on wheat:

burrito (2)

With black beans, lettuce, salsa, guacamole, olives and jalapenos.

I opened it up to munch most of the innards with a fork

burrito (3)

And then rolled it back up so I could devour the rest burrito-style. The little part at the end (the burrito bootay) is by far the best part ๐Ÿ˜‰

I was planning to take an off day and do some gentle yogaโ€”the yoga didnโ€™t happen because my legs and back are still screaming at me from the Zumbathon. So worth it, though <3

Now Iโ€™m sipping some peppermint almond milk (almond milk heated with a peppermint tea bag steeped in + Stevia- a trick I learned from HEABy forever ago)


and ready to revel in the Kardashian drama before making macaroons.

See ya tomorrow with a macaroon giveaway and a Zumba video! ๐Ÿ˜€



Do any of yaโ€™ll have the Womenโ€™s Health Big Book of Exercises? Iโ€™m going to tailor a workout plan using exercises in the book for one of my clients – do you guys want me to post it on the bloggy, too?

    woohoo i am the first commenter ๐Ÿ˜€

    I love moe’s and qdoba..my hubby and son always get the Joey bag o’donuts. I love getting a veggie burrito. Their Guac is sooo good! I always get a big cup to have for a couple days (i add a little lemon juice to not let it get brown).

    I bought the Women’s Health book last night. Gonna take it with me on the deployment next week so I can have a workout plan to keep me on my workout game.

    I would love to see the one you have planned. May take it with me too.

  2. McPinks on September 12, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    I have seen the book before and thought about getting it…For sure post the workout!

    And I 100% agree – burrito booty is the best!:)

  3. Rachael on September 12, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    Ah, Moe’s. We have a more homespun burrito joint in Asheville called Mamacita’s, which usually wins out, but occasionally, my boyfriend does a Moe’s run..I think he likes the name.
    Burrito bootay had me crack a much-needed smile. Thanks!

  4. Laura (On the Threshold of Greatness) on September 12, 2010 at 8:29 pm

    Great idea with the almond milk and peppermint tea! I may have to try that as the cool weather moves in.

    Love “linner.” We call it “dunch” in my family. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Errign on September 12, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    Mmmm, that almond milk sounds yummy – I’ll have to pick some up on my trek to TJs tomorrow to whip that up!

    I am about to go munch some applesauce with pumpkin pie spice, that’s my current fave!

  6. holly @ couchpotatoathlete on September 12, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    I have thought about getting that book — I’d def reconsider getting it if you made a workout from it ๐Ÿ™‚

    That burrito looks killer and I totally know what you mean about the burrito bootay! The part where the tortilla is all crumpled up and warm? Yum.

  7. Lauren @ BIOCHEMISTA on September 12, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    I’d LOVE if you posted from the book ๐Ÿ™‚

    Totally agree – bottom of the burrito is BY FAR the best. All the ooey-gooey goodness saved for the end. Kinda like the middle of a cinnamon roll – save the best for last!

  8. Julie @pickley pear on September 12, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    Oohhh burritos! Chipotle is my fav around here. Please post the workout!

  9. Lily on September 12, 2010 at 8:57 pm

    I have to admit i normally just eat the inside of the burrito! im not a big tortilla fan, and my tummy doesnt hadle gluten well. I just realized i should just order a salad… baahaha.

    IM dying to try zumba, is it a good workout? Im an xc runner so i like things to be sweaty and Bootayy kickin!

    • Fitnessista on September 13, 2010 at 9:17 am

      zumba is an amazing workout! i burn more cals in zumba than running ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Whitney on September 12, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    I’m not really a fan of Moe’s either…I think it’s because there are just MUCH better Mexican and Southwestern restaurants in town. Post the workout…I can always use some new moves ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Pam on September 12, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    I have the book and it would be great to see your workout plan!

  12. Susan @ Journey for Health on September 12, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    Please post the workout ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve never heard of that book, so maybe I’ll see if my school library has it.

    And since the cool and crisp weather is already here in eastern WA, I will have to have some of that peppermint tea later.

  13. babs on September 12, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    Moe’s is pretty darn tasty, though I still love Chiptotle and their guac the beessst

  14. Michelle on September 12, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    Hi Gina! Hey, do you know of anyway to make macaroons if you don’t have a dehydrator?? I would love to try some of these concoctions I see on the blogs, but cannot fork out the money just yet for the dehydrator.

    • Fitnessista on September 13, 2010 at 9:16 am

      yup in the oven on the lowest setting w the door slightly ajar

  15. Laughter-Loving Stacy on September 12, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    That looks like a darn good burrito! And yesss please post workouts! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Liz @ Blog is the New Black on September 12, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    I DO HAVE THAT BOOK! And I would love to see the workout!!

  17. Lauren on September 12, 2010 at 9:34 pm

    Girl I JUST rediscovered the magic of the applesauce last Friday. Same thing for me: went back for seconds immediately. Dang good stuff!

  18. Kristina @ spabettie on September 12, 2010 at 9:41 pm

    HA – I did the same thing today, ate a mini applesauce, then ate ANOTHER ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love the “burrito bootay” – my favorite part ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. VeggieGirl on September 12, 2010 at 9:43 pm

    HAHAHAHA best term ever ๐Ÿ˜€

  20. Erin on September 12, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    Love the almond milk idea — I’m totally trying that this week. Sounds delish!

  21. Lindsay on September 12, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    That’s such a good idea about the peppermint almond milk. I used to put tea bags in milk, but then when I stopped drinking real milk, I forgot that I could do the same thing with a substitute. Almond milk’s my fav.

  22. Chelsea on September 12, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    I don’t have the book, but would love to see the workout anyhow!

    The burrito looks delicious, I don’t think we have Moe’s here in Canada! Oh, and applesauce with cinnamon= so good. Loveee it.

  23. lindsey on September 12, 2010 at 10:02 pm

    hey, i just stumbled upon your blog and it’s totally great. i would love to subscribe but the link is botched and brings me to a big page of code. i don’t know if it is my computer or if the nets are just broken for a bit.

    anyway, picked up a bunch of fun new workouts for the coming days and will continue to check back. i love your daily food dish.


    • Fitnessista on September 13, 2010 at 9:15 am

      thank you!!
      any ideas on how to fixit?? i’ve been trying to get it back up for about a week!

  24. Abbie on September 12, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    Yes!! Please post it!!

  25. Paige @Running Around Normal on September 12, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    I never think to eat applesauce! I want to make my own during apple season this year:)

  26. *Andrea* on September 12, 2010 at 10:17 pm

    burrito bootay! haha too cute – that is my fav part of the burrito ๐Ÿ˜‰ love that peppermint almond milk idea! definitely trying that asap

  27. Brittany @ Eating Bird Food on September 12, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    Peppermint almond milk sound amazing. I need to try that asap. ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. amyjogo on September 12, 2010 at 10:30 pm

    Totally agree with you on the burrito butt! And I’m watching the Kardashians too! Kim looks so pretty without all that makeup…even with the bruises. Scott needs to go.

  29. Shanna @ Shanna Like Banana on September 12, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    Ooo almond milk with peppermint tea sounds like a lovely fall/winter time drink!

  30. Faith @ lovelyascharged on September 12, 2010 at 10:34 pm

    I freakin’ LOVE Moe’s! It’s one of my faves and yes, the burrito butt is the bomb!

  31. Laura J. on September 12, 2010 at 10:37 pm

    So weird– I just got that book a few days ago! I’m really excited, it has a ton of great stuff. I’d love if you post the workout for us ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. Heather (Heather's Dish) on September 12, 2010 at 10:52 pm

    um, yes please on posting a workout! i love being able to look on here and get new ideas!

  33. Cara Craves... on September 12, 2010 at 10:56 pm

    Black bean burritos = one of my fav. things in life!
    I appreciate the small things, and this is one of them!

  34. Carly (Swim, Run, Om) on September 12, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    I am a Moe’s FIEND. It’s definitely one of my fave places to eat out at! I love to get a salad sans shell, and use their tomatillo salsa as a dressing. Love, love, LOVE! <3

    And count me in as someone who wants to see that workout.

  35. Ariffa on September 12, 2010 at 11:05 pm

    I love burrito boootys! and yes please on posting the workout! =D

  36. Krystina on September 12, 2010 at 11:10 pm

    That almond milk sounds delicioso! I wonder how it’d be with chai tea instead of peppermint, since that’s what I have on hand.

  37. mattie on September 12, 2010 at 11:26 pm

    Ohh….that peppermint almond milk sounds divine! I love peppermint tea and almond milk, so I am going to have to whip that up. Also, I LOVE the ends of burritos!

  38. Vanessa on September 12, 2010 at 11:41 pm

    HAHHAHAHA! i am dying laughing at burrito bootay!!! that has always been my absolute favorite part of the burrito, but i never had a term for it. thanks for giving me such a great laugh ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on September 13, 2010 at 1:51 am

    peppermint almond milk, i missed that heaby tip, thank you for recycling it!

    and kardashian action, girl, soooo behind on them. I have them all on my DVR and as soon as step back from my screen and unplug more (please help teach me how you do this!) i can catch up on all my fave shows ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great Monday!


  41. Tina on September 13, 2010 at 5:53 am

    I love apple sauce. I forgot how good it was until I started buying it for my daughter to eat. Now I always steal it. ๐Ÿ˜€ Glad to hear you rested some more. You needed it!

  42. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on September 13, 2010 at 6:33 am

    Ohhh burritos… how I love thee.

  43. Keri on September 13, 2010 at 6:50 am

    Don’t have the book, and love if you would post it!

  44. Lauren on September 13, 2010 at 7:20 am

    I LOVE that book, so yes, please post!

  45. Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine on September 13, 2010 at 7:44 am

    The burrito bootay is definitely the best part! I love pulling out the innards and then eating the tortilla by itself. What can I say, I like carbs ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you have a wonderful Monday!

  46. Marissa on September 13, 2010 at 8:19 am

    Yes please on the workout…I have that book and everytime I look at it, I feel overwhelmed.

  47. Steph on September 13, 2010 at 9:27 am

    Yes, I love the Big Book of Exercises — please post the workout!!

  48. LisaG on September 13, 2010 at 9:32 am

    Hilarious about the burrito! And yay for the workout.

  49. RhodeyGirl on September 13, 2010 at 9:54 am

    I HATE the burrito bootay, I’d give you mine any day of the week. I prefer the very first bite of a perfectly cut half.

    However… the butt of a loaf of french baguette? ALLL MINEEEE

  50. Jen on September 13, 2010 at 12:09 pm

    I have a lovely lunch scheduled with some coworkers today!
