Hi guys 😀 How’s your day going??

I’m SO EXCITED that ya’ll like the Intro to Iron Pumping! Please let me know if you give the workouts a try and what you think 😀 I know Caitlin tried the workout this morning and already felt a burn. Awesome 🙂

Speaking of awesome, so was breakfast 😀

A BREAKFAST COOKIE! Atop a cupcake plate.

This baby had:

-1/2 cup oats

-1 small banana

-almond milk

-1/2 scoop vanilla Sun Warrior


-1 T almond butter

T’was face rocking 😀

After bfast, I hit up the gym with Jeni and Ashley for legs.

Warm up 5 minutes Elliptical
Plie squats 8 lbs 3 sets of 12
Supine pilates hip lifts Body weight 3 sets of 12 on each side
Lunges Body weight 3 sets of 12 on each side
Squat jumps 4 lbs 3 sets of 12
Leg extension 35 lbs 3 sets of 12
Hip abductor 50 lbs 3 sets of 12
Prone hamstring curl 50 lbs 3 sets of 12
Bosu calf raises Body weight 3 sets of 15
Total time: 1 hr    

When I got home, it was protein time.


The rest of last night’s tofu block with coconut aminos, cayenne and garlic powder. I ate it raw because I’ve been in a rush all day cooking is for suckas 😉

Next, I got dinner ready for the pilot so that it will be ready for him when he’s done flying and fill the house with a pleasant aroma.


Doesn’t look like much right now, but that’s marinara sauce and meatballs (all organic). Hopefully the pilot will take a pretty pic of his dinner, since I’ll be at work. I’ll also post the recipe soon for ya’ll because it was super easy 😀 For me, I’m going to take brown rice pasta and veggies to munch after Zumba on the way to work.

The madness continues:

-training appointment (have already done 2 today)


-Teach Zumba

-one more training appointment

The madness also continues at the Chick Fil-A that’s about to open….


Yes, those are TENTS! People are camping out until it tomorrow’s grand opening. My Twitter friends told me that apparently you get free chicken for a year if you’re one of the first customers? Even if I ate chicken (which I don’t), I’m not sure I could roll like that 😉

Well I’m off!

See ya tonight 😀

    I tried day #1 of the Intro to Iron and it was fab! I’m feeling it today for sure. I took some before pics and I’ll try to remember to take them a few times during, and after for sure. Thanks for writing that up for HTP and sharing with all!

    I just have to tell you how much I LOVE your breakfast cookie. Been eating one nearly every day for a few weeks now. ZOMG!

    I tried Zumba for the first time tonight at a studio nearby my house…and I have to say I am hooked. Not only did it kick my butt, but I had so much fun!!

    oh i just saw your actual process for the breakfast cookie. i got gluten-free rolled oats from Whole Foods yesterday yay! so the oats are raw that you are putting in for the cookie?? are you using rolled oats, not quick cook? thanks for your blog!

    • Fitnessista on January 15, 2010 at 4:03 pm

      hey sandy,
      i just use regular old fashioned oats (quaker). i’m sure the gluten-free rolled oats would work beautifully 🙂

    haha that Chick-fil-A scene is hilarious! People did the same thing when we got one last year in Oxford (MS)…Apparently they give away TONS of free coupons and things, so for some people I suppose it’s worth it 🙂
