Go on with yo bad SELF

Heyyyyyy 😀 How’s your day going?? I have to say mine has been pretty darn frantic, but bueno 😀

I started the morning with a lovely bowl of chia pudding


The rest of yesterday’s almond milk, chia seeds, Stevia, mesquite and 1/2 crumbled tropical fruit tart Larabar. Note: mesquite and tropical aren’t a good flavor combo

It was still pretty delicious though 😀

I did 30 minutes of Solar Flow from YogaDownload, then made a smoothie to take to my friend Ashley.

She’s been wanting to try a Spice-C, so I made her one using the restaurant’s recipe:


Into Tom’s Canyon Ranch cup went fresh orange juice, frozen pineapple, lime juice, a little agave, goji berries and cayenne.

I then got a beautiful massage and facial (ahhhhhhhhh) then went to lunch with the girls at my favorite spot: INDIAN!!!!

Since I’m boring and can’t order anything new I just love it so much, I got the standard Baigan Bhartha:


And roti 😀 It was a bready kinda day


After lunch, I went to the groomers to pick up Bella, who ditched the afro and went for a more sleek look





Precious 😀 I love the orange bow, too!

And Viesa, who needs no help from a beautician to look gorgeous


I went and trained funny quotes lady, did 55 minutes on the elliptical chatting with Jeni and then took the puppers to the vet. I was so glad the pilot went with me.. sometimes the things they do in animal check-ups makes me a little squirmy.

They both got ice cream for being so good:


Bella’s was spiked with Benadryl to keep her from having an allergic reaction to the vaccines. She is a delicate little flower 😉

She had no idea that there was kid’s Benadryl in there:


My treat:


A macaroon!!!

I’m off to have a hot dinner date with the pilot because we’re both leaving this weekend and I didn’t want to get groceries… And I like hanging out with him 😉

Have a wonderful evening!

    Beautiful furry babies! We give our doggies benadryl all the time. THey have really bad allergies. Unfortunately, since they are as big as me, it doesn’ get them the least bit sleepy! And we ALWAYS have Frosty Paws ice cream in the freezer. What kind do you give your pups?

  2. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on October 16, 2009 at 6:48 pm

    I really want to try the spice-C smoothie too!

    How awesome that you guys are in Self mag – I love it and think it’s one of the few magazines that are empowering to women.

    Your puppies are too cute! Are you going to dress them up for halloween?

    You make me want Indian food every time you post it, but I am not sure of a good place here in Fayetteville, NC (any suggestions?).

    Bella is so cute with her new cut! She looks so much tinier.

    • Fitnessista on October 16, 2009 at 11:24 pm

      ahhhh i used to live in fayetteville!! CRAZY. we were stationed there last year 😀 tripp’s used to be out weekend eatery, we’d go hang out there all the time. as far as indian food goes, i didn’t fall in love with it until we moved to valdosta– wish that i had a suggestion for you!

  18. Stephanie on October 16, 2009 at 10:02 pm

    Is Bella a poodle? I didn’t think so before but with the new ‘do she looks like my toy poodle I had growing up! So precious 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful date with the man!

    • Fitnessista on October 16, 2009 at 11:20 pm

      she’s a maltipoo, but you’re totally right- after a haircut she looks like a toy poodle 😀
