Fill it with Millet

Hey guys! How are ya? Happy INDIAN FOOD Wednesday! Who’s celebrating?? You know I am 😉

Last night was pretty chill… unlike Glee, which was INTENSE. (I changed the channel from Biggest Loser to Glee…. Personal trainer, but I was a musical theatre nerd loooong before I got into fitness. Gotta stick to my roots, yo) Poker Face rocked my face off 😀

Post weights snack was courtesy of the Vega Fairy, who sent these lovely goodies:

(Disclaimer: yes, these were a gift from Vega, but I only accept products for the blog that I would purchase with my own money –I just bought a boatload of Vega stuff in Hotlanta– and use on a regular basis. You’ll never see random stuff here)


Vega Shake and Go Smoothie in Vanilla Almondilla and Tropical Tango

At first I was wondering which cup to use and I remembered THIS!


A GLASS smoothie shaker that my friend Ashley surprised me with 😀

It was perfect for my smoothie-to-go

smoothie (2)

The verdict? Amazing. But seriously, when do I not like Vega stuff? Plant-based protein, tastes like heaven, mostly raw… it was smoothie love at first sip 😉


Salad with honey mustard dressing, grape tomatoes and Garlic Gold


2 cups of Trader Joes Vegan Black bean soup.. which I de-veganized with a blanket of goat gouda


(Wish I had some cilantro to garnish… brown soup isn’t very aesthetically appealing, haha)

and still snacky, I had some millet bread with almond butter and jam.


Sometimes you’ve gotta fill it with millet 😉

It’s time to do this morning’s Insanity workout with Ashley and then head to work.

Want some raw macaroons??

roon dough



Head over to my friend Angela’s Shop 4 a Cause silent auction for charity – I donated a batch of macaroons for the amazing cause and am happy to pay international shipping to the highest bidder.

Happy shopping!


Something to talk about: What’s your “signature dessert”? Something you’d be most likely to order from a restaurant or make for company. My number one is probably the macaroon, but number two would have to be a pizookie 😉

    o.k….so after hearing about this stinking insanity workout forever, i went and bought it! but now today i’m wondering….”if im doing this wokout craziness for a few months, whats next?”. are you going to use it forever? am i gonna gain a bunch of weight when im done for a while? am i gonna have to move on to something even more extreme afterwards? whats the low down.

    and um…youre awesome!

      hey melissa,
      i definitely wouldn’t do the workout forever because it’s INTENSE. my plan is to get more into spinning and yoga when i’m done and have maybe 2-3 insanity days each week to maintain my results. then i probably repeat the whole program maybe once a year?? i’ve also heard you can combine insanity with p90x if that’s something you wanted to do, too 🙂

    Oohh.. I can make a mean Tiramisu! But I have found that it’s not for everyone. 🙁 Sadly some don’t like the coffee flavor or the rum added. But I don’t let that get me down – I rock it anyways! Your macaroons looked SO amazing!!!! 🙂

    • Fitnessista on May 26, 2010 at 7:25 pm

    Hi Gina!

    I love your blog… I have similiar ideals about food but I struggle a lot when it comes to caffeine.. I know it is not really good for me and I always tell myself I am going to get off of it but I just can’t seem to quit. I love herbal teas much more than I do coffee. I feel as if my classmates in college actually have started to associate me with coffee. I also have found that I stress out a lot, miss work outs, etc. when I have had a lot of caffeine that day. I feel like my body is so drained and I just keep going back to it. What are your tips to wean off of the coffee/caffeine habit.

    Thank you!
