Cheese n’ Carbs

Hey hey hey 😀 Hope you’re having a wonderful night! Thanks so much for the awesome feedback on the vegan mug cake– please let me know how ya’ll like it! 🙂


After my chocolaty mug cake foodgasm, I decided I needed some veggies in my life, so I munched some spiralized zucchini with marinara, chickpeas and kalamata olives.


I went to TJ Maxx to buy some things I don’t really need kill some time, and then went to work for a cardio sesh (Revolving Apparatus of Death) and tonight’s training appointments.



Quesadilla with:

-Brown rice tortilla, goat gouda and green chilies

-Frijoles with more green chilies

-HOT Herdez salsa (my salsa loverrrr)

Cheesy + carbs…. so right 😀

Dessert was a Sun Warrior smoothie (crazy awesome promo comin’ atcha on Wednesday!) 😀

I’m off to make the Pilot something to eat since he just got back to the casa and then calling it a night!

See ya in the morning- I think I’ll post another workout tomorrow so please let me know if you’d like to see a solo spin, bootcamp style, treadmill, or muscle group specific workout <3

See you soon!

    I’d LOVE to see a spin workout! I think I’m a little bit unmotivated on my own because right now I sprint during song choruses with a higher resistance and take it down a few notches during the rest of the song, usually with a short recovery after 10-15 minutes. I keep at it for about an hour. It sure breaks a sweat, but I know there’s a way to go even further!

    Solo Spin! I’ve been doing the stationary bike as cross training for my half marathon training, and it can get a little boring without a specific goal in mind!

    Oh, there’s also one more thing that I’ve been meaning to ask you…

    I’m really love to weight train for sculpting and because I loveeeee feeling soar the next day. But, I find that weights are so male dominated and I often shy away from jumping in, leaving me just doing cardio. What’s your take on the best way to combat this?

    • Fitnessista on August 24, 2010 at 9:12 am

      i think the best way to get over that is to go in with a plan and try to ignore the meatheads. honestly, no one notices what anyone else is doing when they work out– they’re too worried about themselves and their own workout

    I would love to see a treadmill workout. I HATE being on the treadmill but sometimes I am forced to do my run inside. A workout would help make it tolerable.

    haha I *just* went to TJ Maxx yesterday. I set out to get yoga pants and I came back with a pan, 2 bras, underwear, and a shirt.

    Why do you choose Sun Warrior over Amazing Grass? I have never tried Sun Warrior and am curious!

    • Fitnessista on August 24, 2010 at 1:28 pm

      because it tastes a thousand times better and i love the nutrition stats 🙂

  13. Lauren C. on August 24, 2010 at 3:04 pm

    Hmmm, you have my attention! Guess I’ll have to look into it! Thanks!
