Coconut Surprise

The best kind of surprise, right?? 🙂

How’s your day going? Hope it’s been lovely. I actually had no one show up for my am class today! The past 2 weeks have been pretty decent (considering it’s brand new!) but still working on getting the word out. Instead, I choreographed for an hour and took it as a sign that I can practice yoga today- I’m committed to bringing it back into my schedule this week.

On the way home, I made a little stop at Whole Paycheck for kale and other produce that TJs doesn’t have.


2 things:

1. I forgot the kale (WF has a knack for distracting me!), and



I haven’t been following my detox meal plan (because it kinda sucks, haha), but when I saw coconut milk ice cream on there for day 11 as a little treat, I was happy to oblige. Thursday night I’ll be cuddling up with my pint o’ bliss 🙂

When I was perusing the plan, I also noticed that I’m not *supposed* to add back in nuts until Day 20 (I’m on day 9 and I’ve had two amazeballz today already. Oops). Guess the nuts are going to have to wait a little longer :/

Today’s afternoon munch was kind of fun:


Roasted organic tomatoes:


Topped with red quinoa, caramelized onions, garlic, and arugula


(Cooked in coconut oil)

Red pepper flakes, lemon juice, sea salt and pepper

quinoa (2)


It’s a little cold and stormy here today in T-town – to all of you who are supposed to get crazy snow, be careful and stay warm!

I’m off to celebrate with my bro and then head to yogaaaaaa.

Fun dinner planned, too 😀


Enjoy the rest of your day and I’ll see your beautiful faces later! 🙂



Relax a little… word on the street is that’s how Vies is spending her day 😉


Today’s workout jam: “Got No Shorty” Sean Kingston (perfect for tempo cardio)

    Coconut ice cream sounds like the perfect way to end the day! 🙂

    I am right there with you on no-shows for class. Last night was to be my big teaching debut, 2 classes in a row, but due to bad weather and the classes being new to the schedule, not a single person showed! Maybe a blessing in disguise since I’m getting over the flu, but still, I had a small case of the Zumba blue balls. 🙂

    Here’s hoping for better luck tonight!

    SO wish I could come to Dance Trance. I woulda been your one lonely student if I could’ve been!

    Both the beets burgers and your afternoon munch look delish. I will have to use them recipes sometime soon 🙂

    Off topic…i’m new to your blog and loving it : ) I’ve been going through it…can I make cookie dough cereal without the protein powder? I haven’t bought any yet…what should I add in? Thanks : )

      welcome to the little blog 🙂 you can skip the protein powder and just use almond butter- it will still taste delicious 🙂
