Hey hey hey! How are you? Hope you had a wonderful weekend <3

Catching up on the blogworld?

-The Pilot posted the BIG NEWS and

-I’ve been booty shaking the weekend away at a Dance Trance instructors conference Smile

After our last day of workshop, I enjoyed an incredible meal, Oscar party and gab fest with two very lovely ladies


Lindsey and Katie!

+ Lindsey’s hubby, Ross Smile

Katie and I chilled all weekend doing DT stuff, and as soon as it was over, we had plans to meet up with Lindsey, who has become a very close friend through the blog world.

We went to Whole Paycheck to pick up groceries and then transformed them into a legendary feast Smile


I made two pizzas using Bob’s Red Mill GF pizza crust mix:


BBQ chicken pizza with Annie’s BBQ sauce, organic rotisserie chicken, goat gouda and cilantro


and sautéed veggie pizza (red pepper, zucchini, yellow squash. eggplant, artichoke) with marinara, basil and Daiya mozarella


Ooey gooey perfection Smile

pizza (2)

(I had one slice of each)

We also enjoyed a beautiful salad that Linds put together


with greens, chopped green apple, cucumber, tomato, sunflower seeds, almonds and avocado with balsamic dressing.

And then, the best part of all:


Pizookie! Pizookie! PIZOOOOOOOKIE!!!!!!

That little bundle of food baby joy was made with Lindsey’s top secret recipe vegan chocolate chip cookies (my imposter recipe is *here*)


(Ross had a man-zookie made in a larger tart pan)


ice cream

The kicker? The cookies were cooked about halfway, so they were crispy on the outside, soft and slightly undercooked in the middle, with the ice cream melting on top.

pizookie (2)

I die.

This morning Lindsey has to work, so Katie and I are going to yoga before heading to the airport to catch our flights.

See ya this afternoon <3



It’s pretty incredible that the blogworld can help create real-life friendships. Have you met a fellow bloggy or blog reader before? Who watched the Oscars last night? I was so happy that Natalie Portman and Colin Firth won Smile

    I am going to move to JAX so I can be your new (blogger) friend, primarily for the EATS! Your food always looks so gooooood! I love the blog world (and I love reading your blog!)

    • Fitnessista on February 28, 2011 at 9:47 am

      thank you! i love the blog world too- it changed my life in so many happy ways 🙂

  2. Jenna on February 28, 2011 at 9:31 am

    I was SO happy when Colin Firth won! He’s just such an amazing actor. I also loved that The King’s Speech won Best Picture. That film was incredible!

    • Fitnessista on February 28, 2011 at 9:46 am

      it was an excellent film. it totally deserved it

  3. Carla on February 28, 2011 at 9:37 am

    omg! pizza looks spectacular!!!!! I may just need to make that for my kidos today! THANKS!

  4. Jackie @ Baking Charms on February 28, 2011 at 9:39 am

    natalie portman was stunning at the oscars… i thought the rodarte dress was perfect for her baby bump!

    • Fitnessista on February 28, 2011 at 9:45 am

      she always looks so beautiful. your right- the dress was perfect. didn’t love the fringe earrings though

  5. Clarissa @ SoberandtheCity on February 28, 2011 at 9:50 am

    That pizza looks SO good! And its GF which means the boy will love it too!

  6. Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete on February 28, 2011 at 10:02 am

    I love Bob’s GF crust — it is delicious!

    But I am so jealous of that pizookie!!! That looks amazing.

    I have met a fellow bloggy in real life, but there are so many I have “met” via email, phone, etc. The connections have been wonderful!

  7. Allison @ Food For Healing on February 28, 2011 at 10:06 am

    that pizookie does look to die for.

    i have a friend in town that is a food blogger as well, but her schedule makes it hard to see eachother, but its cool. Id love to meet more. like you!

    i watched a very short amount of the red carpet, i’m not much of a fan of that celeb stuff i guess.

  8. Mandy (theamazonprincess) on February 28, 2011 at 10:27 am

    Yea maam I loved the Oscars last night! I wish I had had a Pizookie while watching though, it looks amazing!

  9. Colleen @ The Lunchbox Diaries on February 28, 2011 at 10:32 am

    I loved the Oscar’s last night and I’m so glad Colin Firth won. I love, love, love looking at all the pretty dresses, make up and jewelry, too. Everyone looked stunning 🙂

  10. Leanne on February 28, 2011 at 10:41 am

    I really love how (most of) the blog world is so supportive & positive. I feel like the blogs I read are *girlfriends* and your blog especially always gives me things to think about 🙂

    Those cookies look amazing. 😀

  11. VeggieGirl on February 28, 2011 at 10:41 am

    I’ve had the privilege of meeting MANY fabulous bloggers. I watched the Oscars, but wasn’t that impressed with the show; although yes, thank goodness Natalie and Colin won!

  12. Ashley on February 28, 2011 at 10:42 am

    I’m new to the blog world but I love it. I haven’t met anyone yet but it’s nice to know there’s support from all over the country that’s just a comment away. 😀

  13. Jess@atasteofconfidence on February 28, 2011 at 10:45 am

    So happy King’s Speech and Colin won. It was well deserved:)

  14. Courtney @ The Granola Chronicles on February 28, 2011 at 10:54 am

    Holy deliciousness – that pizookie looks AMAZING! I definitely watched the Oscars last night + all the pre-show/red carpet coverage. Basically took up the entire day, ha!

  15. Gretchen @ Honey, I Shrunk the Gretchen! on February 28, 2011 at 10:57 am

    I haven’t met any of my new blogger friends in real life yet, but the reason I got into blogging in the first place is because of a real life friend who blogs as well. So I guess for me it worked in reverse? I’m here today thanks to Anne P. from so hooray!

    • Fitnessista on February 28, 2011 at 1:00 pm

      thats so cool- nice to meet you 🙂
      love anne, too!

  16. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on February 28, 2011 at 11:00 am

    OMG that food looks amazing! I’m always a fan of the undercooked-in-the-middle cookies too – I try to make them like that purposely! I was super happy for Natalie Portman and Colin Firth too. 🙂

  17. Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg on February 28, 2011 at 11:17 am

    Just caught up on the weekend excitement– congrats on the WONDERFUL news!!!! So exciting for you and the Pilot!

  18. The Peanut Butter Addict on February 28, 2011 at 11:17 am

    That BBQ chicken pizza looks mouth watering! I stopped watching the Oscars after a bit (found them a bit boring) but I’m glad those two won as well.

  19. Laura H. on February 28, 2011 at 11:17 am

    Wow, the pizza and cookies look so delish! We watched the Oscars last night too, albeit not with food as good as this!

  20. Maria on February 28, 2011 at 11:23 am

    All this food looks so good! How did the GF pizza crust turn out? I think that’s on my menu for next week’s dinner.

  21. Alyssa on February 28, 2011 at 11:33 am

    Hey I just had to let you know that I met Viesa yesterday!!! It was the randomest thing in the world but a friend of mine goes to ASU with Viesa’s new owner and they were dogsitting this weekend. I told them they could bring the dog over to run around in our backyard so my little 1 1/2 year old could play with it. When they got there I recognized here and asked her name! It’s such a small world, eh? Matti had a great time trying to chase Viesa around and Viesa had a great time eating grass and literally running circles around us. What a sweet dog. She seems really happy. Just wanted to let you know!

    • Fitnessista on February 28, 2011 at 12:59 pm

      no way- that is awesome!!!

  22. Ashley on February 28, 2011 at 11:49 am

    Ive only had 1 ever blogger meet up. We dont live in the same city but if we did I like to think we would hang out!

  23. Jess @ Fit Chick in the City on February 28, 2011 at 11:54 am

    That desert looks amazing! Can you guys please send one over to NYC.

  24. Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman on February 28, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    I loved the Oscars last night. Of course Colin Firth and Natalie Portman won. Those were a given, but I’m glad. They totally deserved it.

  25. Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife on February 28, 2011 at 12:24 pm

    I think your pizza looks to die for-and that pazookie! We’re actually having pazookie for dessert tonight and I am already excited 😉 P.s. I thought Natalie and Reese both looked stunning last night!

    • Fitnessista on February 28, 2011 at 12:58 pm

      they were both gorgeous as ever 🙂

  26. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on February 28, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    I haven’t met a fellow blogger but I have done food exchanges which are SO wonderful!

  27. Kathie on February 28, 2011 at 12:32 pm

    that pizza looks soo yummy!

  28. Stefanie @TheNewHealthy on February 28, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    It is so incredible to make friends through the blogworld! I haven’t met any blends in person yet–but I hope to soon!! 🙂

  29. Amanda on February 28, 2011 at 12:47 pm

    SO Jealous! You and Katie are 2 of my favorite bloggers, what fun you 2 must have had!

    • Fitnessista on February 28, 2011 at 12:56 pm

      it was quite a blasty 🙂

  30. mary (what's cookin' with mary) on February 28, 2011 at 12:57 pm

    Your pizookie’s look SO YUMMERZ! I love coconut ice cream 😀 mmmm

    I’ve never met a blogger IRL… Kind of a little nervous to.. lol not totally sure why. I’m sure at some point I will… since we already have many things in common. It’s why I read their blogs right ?? Maybe when I get brave (and not so shy) I will…

  31. Sable on February 28, 2011 at 1:06 pm

    The pizookie looks so good!

    I have always wondered if coconut ice cream tastes like “the real thing.” I’ve never tried it because it’s always so freakin’ COLD in Montana but am intrigued…I just don’t wanna spend like $12 on a carton if it’s not awesome!

    I LOVE Natalie Portman. Love love love. She totally deserved the win.

    • Fitnessista on February 28, 2011 at 1:33 pm

      it’s glorious- i promise you’ll love it 🙂

  32. Kelly @ Laughter, Strength, and Food on February 28, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    That pizza looks amazing! I am a total pizza addict!

  33. Kristin (Cook, Bake, Nibble) on February 28, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    I actually got together with three other bloggers and another friend to watch the Oscars last night! It was a fun night of food and fashion 😀 And it was a great Oscars!


  34. Lauren- HungryDancer on February 28, 2011 at 1:27 pm

    So happy Natalie Portman won!!! Those pizookies look amazing!!!!!!

  35. Laura @ prettylittlewords on February 28, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    I think you might have already told us about how you liked it, but how did you like Daiya?

    • Fitnessista on February 28, 2011 at 1:33 pm

      love daiya!! it’s vegan dream cheese 🙂

  36. Jaclyn on February 28, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    I loved the show last night – was so happy with Natalie Portman’s win!!

    Those eats and weekend shenanigans look amazing! So fun – and pizookie.. yum!!!!

  37. LisaG on February 28, 2011 at 1:52 pm

    Aaw man I thought you were having a blogger,baby,& pilot meet-up all at once. I guess you’ll be jetsetting this month.

    • Fitnessista on February 28, 2011 at 5:09 pm

      not yet- soonish though!!

    • Krystyn on February 28, 2011 at 8:58 pm

      I was hoping for the same thing!

  38. Courtney on February 28, 2011 at 2:05 pm

    That PIZZA deserves an Oscar – dang!

    • Fitnessista on February 28, 2011 at 5:09 pm

      LOL. it was dead before it could have made a speech though 😉

  39. Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn on February 28, 2011 at 2:06 pm

    oh. Mai. Gawd. I die. That pizza and dessert is scrumdiddlyumptious delicious looking, give me any baked good slightly undercooked and I will love you forever!

    Slash yesss I watched the Oscars, I love seeing all of the beautiful dresses:)

  40. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on February 28, 2011 at 2:50 pm

    The pizza looks great, but what an awesome meetup!!!!! I would love to meet Lindsay and Katie! They are both SUCH sweet girls and I can only imagine the great time you had!!!

    I didnt watch the Oscars. I was working but it’s ok b/c I had not seen any of the movies, anyway. I do love looking at the red carpet fashions though and yes, Natalie Portman looked beautiful!

    Have a great day, Gina 🙂

  41. Kandi on February 28, 2011 at 3:17 pm

    Never used Bob’s pizza crust. Will have to try.

    I’m so happy you get to be in Tucson! Great!

    Long-time (fairly silent) following of your blog, but I’m also now following you on Twitter (@karmascorner)

    • Fitnessista on February 28, 2011 at 5:08 pm

      thank you- and thanks for saying hi!

  42. Laura on February 28, 2011 at 3:25 pm

    I just started a blog and hope to meet some blog friends through it! At the very least, it is a nice, creative outlet to have! You just made me drool with that pizza. I need to try to recreate it using somewhat paleo ingredients so my hubby will enjoy it with me!! Love your blog. Alway getting after life… I like that about you!

    • Fitnessista on February 28, 2011 at 5:08 pm

      thanks girl! and welcome to the blog world 🙂

  43. Christin@purplebirdblog on February 28, 2011 at 4:08 pm

  44. Meghan on February 28, 2011 at 4:32 pm

    Holy pizookies batman – those look yumazing. I want a slightly crispy edged/ gooey centered pizookie STAT 🙂

  45. Tyler Ramey on February 28, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    Im so jealous of your blog meet ups! This blog BOY needs to meet the Fitnessista and get his Trance on with you and Katie!!! I think Teri (afoodiestaysfit) is coming soon to visit TN! Should be fun times! I am back in the blog world, and loving it. I have missed all my ladies!

    • Fitnessista on February 28, 2011 at 5:04 pm

  46. Emma on February 28, 2011 at 6:06 pm

    I met up with a raw foodie in a raw food fayre in London. It was sooo lovely!

  47. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on February 28, 2011 at 6:50 pm

    That looks like such a fun night! Blogger hangouts + food = perfection! I’ve never met any other bloggers IRL. 🙁 Hopefully some day soon though!

    Oh my goodness, those cookies + coconut ice cream look yum! I have to get on that! And yes, I watched the Oscars (well, 2/3 of them anyways). It’s always fun to see what everyone is wearing! I think Mila Kunis stole the show. 🙂 And no, I haven’t met any fellow bloggers yet, but I hope to! I’ve been reading blogs for a long time but just started my own a little over a month ago. I love the blogworld!

  50. Chinda Tilson on March 1, 2011 at 1:40 am

    I’m soooo glad you like “Jungle Flames”!! I was excited to introduce it to the DT Nation. Hope your trip back was a good one. Great meeting you!!
