Fiyah Booty

Hey hey hey Open-mouthed smile How’s your day been?? Mine has been crazy so far- hence the late blogging. Usually at work I can skip away to blog for a while, but today we’ve been SLAMMED!

We started off the morning with a lovely ballet booty barre class at BodyWorks studio.

booty

Holy plies and leg lifts. My bum was on fiyah and I liked it Smile I didn’t even take the whole class since I was snapping photos for the website, but the portion I did catch was intense.

Some recent eats:

Girl’s night dinner at Blue Willow

(PS. grilled sweet potatoes have changed my life forever)

Chocolate-covered strawberry smoothie

Black bean spaghetti

I meandered over to the farmer’s market to see what goodies I *needed* Winking smile

    I know this is random but what’s a good make-at-home salad dressing that is healthy? & obvs. delicious too?!

    • Fitnessista on February 5, 2011 at 10:12 pm

      i love balsamic- 1/4 C balsamic, 1/3-1/2 c olive oil, 1 t dijon mustard, 1 minced garlic clove, oregano, sea salt, pepper, pinch of stevia

  4. Mandy (theamazonprincess) on February 5, 2011 at 3:57 pm

    Awww yay! 🙂 I’m so glad you get to see Vies tonight. You’ll both be so happy. And I’ve been wanting to get that blue Lulu jacket like crazy! I have it in plain black, but I really liked all the colors in that one. I miiiight have to make a trip to the website. 😉

  5. Carrie (Moves 'N Munchies) on February 5, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    oh my gosh black bean spaghetti is AWESOME!!! Vies is SO SO CUTE!

  6. Rika on February 5, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    aww Vies looks like a little fox(y mama)!

  7. Maryann on February 5, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    I have seen black bean spaghetti on some blogs but can’t find it anywhere, where can I find it?! Whole foods?

    • Jamie on February 5, 2011 at 4:20 pm

      Yes, I second this! Where can it be found/how can it be made?

    • Kristina on February 5, 2011 at 6:19 pm

      I’m doing a give-away with some this week!

    • Kelly Michelle on February 5, 2011 at 6:36 pm

      FYI guys- I couldn’t find it for awhile either but it IS at Whole Foods, at least at mine it is a little tricky to find because instead of putting it with the other spaghetti it is in the Asian section.

    • Fitnessista on February 5, 2011 at 10:09 pm

      i’ll post a pic of the package for everyone tomorrow and yes it’s at whole foods 🙂

  8. Krystina (Crunchy Granola Girl) on February 5, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    Have fun with Viesa!!

  9. Carolyn on February 5, 2011 at 4:21 pm

    I put my new Stride jacket on as soon as I got home & showered. I LOVE IT!! 🙂 Yum – grilled sweet potatoes can come rock my world. And Ms. Emily was brutal while being adorable this morning, loved the Yes? and when her accent would come out. Happy I got my booty out of bed.

    • Fitnessista on February 5, 2011 at 10:09 pm

      love love your new jacket 🙂 so glad you made it this morning! emily was amazing- i can’t wait to take another one of her classes

  10. Sara (Miles & Manhattan) on February 5, 2011 at 4:24 pm

  13. Annette on February 5, 2011 at 4:39 pm

    Black bean spaghetti? Wow that sounds fun….how was it? I like ballet style classes because I was a ballet dancer for 17 years! 🙂

  14. Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn on February 5, 2011 at 4:51 pm

    Pecan pie is ALWAYS needed:) That sounds like such a fun class! I hope you have a good time with Vies, girl:)

  15. Courtney @ the granola chronicles on February 5, 2011 at 4:52 pm

    That pecan pie looks amazing!
    Hope you enjoy seeing Vies tonight – yay!!

  26. Lisa on February 5, 2011 at 6:16 pm

    I know you’ll be happy to see Vies; she must be on winter break from “college!” I’m jealous if you’re eating @ canyon ranch. Not fair.

  27. Kristina on February 5, 2011 at 6:19 pm

    Have fun seeing View-she’s going to be so excited to see you!!!!

  28. Kristina on February 5, 2011 at 6:19 pm

    *Vies!

  29. Christine (The Raw Project) on February 5, 2011 at 6:25 pm

    The ballet booty barre class looks fun! Great eats, I need to try black bean spaghetti.

  30. Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete on February 5, 2011 at 6:26 pm

    I’m glad you get to see Viesa today! I’m sure she misses you like crazy.

  31. Heather (Heather's Dish) on February 5, 2011 at 6:34 pm

    hurray for getting to see Viesa tonight! i bet she’s going to love the snuggles she gets 🙂

  32. Jerri on February 5, 2011 at 6:38 pm

    Hey, Gina. Love your blog! Saw these pretty little strawberries and wondered what you could concoct without the sugar. They look truly divine!

    Oh! So happy you get to see Viesa tonight!

    • Fitnessista on February 5, 2011 at 10:06 pm

      those look delicious!!

  33. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on February 5, 2011 at 6:50 pm

    That picture of you and Viesa is too cute! She must miss you a ton!

  34. Christin@purplebirdblog on February 5, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    Grilled sweet potatoes sound just about right!! And hooray for getting to see your sweet Vies! I am nursing an injured pup today… my little guy slipped on some ice and exacerbated an old back injury last night! 🙁

  35. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on February 5, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    The last pic is so precious! Have fun seeing her tonight!

    And being slammed at work…that’s a good thing b/c it makes the time go by faster, until you have that “omg I need to blog and get my post up” feeling…or maybe i am the only one who gets that feeling 🙂

    Grilled sweet taters? Yes please!

    🙂

  36. Amy on February 5, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    Awwwh! Vies looks adorabs in that pic! Like a cross between a dog, fox, and a cat! Have fun!

  37. Amie on February 5, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    Have fun with your pup! 🙂

  38. Val @ Balancing Val on February 5, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    That nutritional yeast looks just like real melty cheese!!

    How did you do that?

    Did you mix it with some water and broil it?

  39. Ashley @ the fit academic on February 5, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    Wow! Sounds like a jam-packed (but fun-filled) day!

  40. Diana on February 5, 2011 at 9:10 pm

    Awww, I would love to have one of those ballet classes here (Orlando)! I’ve always wanted to be able to do ballet moves 😉

  41. Caitlin @ TPL on February 5, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    Oh my goodness I want to try black bean pasta, it looks great! I have some brown rice pasta that I’ve not yet broken into also… glad your class was good, have a great night!

    Caitlin

  42. andilu on February 5, 2011 at 10:31 pm

    Whew, you are just blowing everyones minds with your BB pasta…I was planning to avoid food shopping tomorrow (crazed superbowl fans, aaaaghhh!!) but shucks, I don’t know if I can wait until Monday to go get me some…

  43. Ash on February 5, 2011 at 11:54 pm

    That class looks fun to try and yum! Black bean spaghetti! (I have yet to try it though…)

    Btw, I always love your clothes. You should do more fashion posts haha. I LOVED your last one.

  44. Mona on February 6, 2011 at 12:44 am

    I was so excited when I came across your blog! I moved to Tucson 6 months ago and got excited when I saw your blue willow post 🙂 I was wondering how you made the black bean spaghetti? It looks fantastic! Thank you!

    • Fitnessista on February 6, 2011 at 1:14 am

      welcome to t-town 🙂 it’s from whole foods

  45. Erin on February 6, 2011 at 1:26 am

    I am so jealous of all of the fun classes you take! I haven’t found that much variety here in Dallas:(

    • Fitnessista on February 6, 2011 at 1:27 am

      that’s weird- you’d think in a big city like dallas that they’d offer a lot of classes!

  46. Gill (snaxandthecity) on February 6, 2011 at 3:24 am

    i’ve heard that ballet barre classes are deceptively hard!

    Hope you enjoy seeing Viesa!

  47. Doc (The Healthy PhD) on February 6, 2011 at 11:07 am

    I’ve always wanted to take one of those classes!

    I have a Q on your detox – how are you dealing with cravings for things you can’t have? Do you have a mantra? Or do you just keep your ‘eye on the prize’?

    • Fitnessista on February 6, 2011 at 11:23 am

      i’ve been keeping my eye on the prize for the most part, but when it’s gotten unbearable, i’ve had a little. i’ve had almond butter and some raw treats before i was supposed to… the almond butter is the one thing i miss the most!

  48. Leslie on February 6, 2011 at 3:53 pm

    Ballet booty barre is such a good idea! They don’t have those classes here, but I absolutely love ballet and continue to take classes periodically (even though I’m over the hill for dancing–33 :)). It always kicks my butt. Literally. My butt is sore for days…

  49. steph a on February 6, 2011 at 6:18 pm

    Yummm that black bean spaghetti looks delicious!!!!!!!!!

  50. joanna on February 6, 2011 at 9:22 pm

    Do you think that was the best booty work out you have ever had?

    • Fitnessista on February 6, 2011 at 9:34 pm

      ever? no. but it was definitely a good one!
