His and Hers

Hey everyone 😀 Hope you’re having a lovely night! A little note about the giveaway: there’s still one more thing I need to do, so be on the lookout for it sometime tomorrow.

I’ve done a little pre-celebrating –and just had a glass of wine the size of my head so let’s see how this turns out 😉

Bday cards have come in the mail:


Mr. FedEx stopped by and brought a bday package from the familia


Full of fun gifties


Including snowman PJ pants, the new Buble CD, yogurt spoons, a cupcake plate, baby utensils and matching adult-sized one for the pilot, recipe cards, Bailey’s truffles, and a gift card to one of my favorite stores ever: WORLD MARKET 😀

I blasted the Buble CD, coerced the pilot to dance with me, and made some omelets 😀

His omelet:


3 eggs stuffed with proscuitto, chicken and mozarella left over from the cordon bleu and potato pan fried in organic butter with garlic

Her omelet:


1 egg + 1 egg white puffed in the microwave, topped with leftover Giada veggies and a salad beast with Goddess dressing

His workout:

(Just kidding.. but he really doesn’t have to do anything to look like a Roman god. If he eats a donut, it just makes his six-pack more defined. Man metabolism astounds me every day, haha)

Her workout:

Treadmill 4 miles Hill walking and sprint intervals; 45 minutes
Elliptical 5 minutes Level 5
Kettleball squats 6 lbs 3 sets of 12
Barbell deadlifts 20 lbs 3 sets of 12
Stability ball inner thigh squeeze Body weight 3 sets of 12
Plank Body weight 3 sets of 30 seconds
Prone dumbbell hamstring curl 8 lbs 3 sets of 12
Calf raises on a step Body weight 3 sets of 12
Dumbbell oblique toe reach 5 lbs 3 sets of 10 on each side
Total time: 1.5 hr    

His smoothie: Was PB & J and full of protein

Her smoothie: Was GREEN 😀


(Tropical superfood smoothie from The Main Squeeze)

His birthday cupcakes:


The Car bomb cupcakes 😀

Her birthday cupcakes:


Jeni made me chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting! See the one on the left?? I ate all the frosting and the top off that one 😀 And it was foodgasmic 🙂 Thank you Jeni! <3

His pizza:


Organic marinara, baby bella mushrooms, sausage, green bell pepper, onion, garlic, mozarella

Her pizza:


Organic marinara, yellow squash, zucchini, sundried tomatoes, onion, garlic, oregano, balsamic vinegar and goat gouda

Topped with basil and red pepper flakes

(I only cut it in half for kicks.. you know I ate the whole thing)

The dough that made it possible:


Homemade brown rice flour and spelt dough with oregano, basil, garlic and extra virgin olive oil

And we each had a salad with mixed greens, grape tamaters and Goddess dressing


Now we’re sitting here complaining that nothing is on TV and he’s trying to convince me to “bundle up” (it’s FREEZING outside) and putt putt golf with him.. we shall see 🙂

Well I’m out like sauerkraut 😉

See ya when I’m 25 😀



Something to do: Take a second to be thankful for those who risk their lives to protect us <3 To all of my fellow military families out there, I am so thankful to each and every one of your service members for their selflessness and have so much respect and gratitude to all of you for sharing them with the rest of us. I know how the worry, loneliness, stress and the craziness that comes with watching the ones we love do courageous and dangerous things so that we can be safe and enjoy the many freedoms we’re entitled to.

    Your post today reflected a lot of what I have been thinking about lately. My husband does not eat like I do and I spend a lot of time making two meals, it seems. Although we can be having the “same” thing. Does this ever frustrate you? Any thoughts?

    • Fitnessista on November 12, 2009 at 9:40 am

      yes, it just takes a little bit of extra planning. we almost always eat the same thing, but different versions. i usually have two skillets going on the stove, or two pans in the oven. our main dishes are always a little different, but we always eat the same side dishes (like veggies and salads).
      to me, the extra time is so worth it because there’s no way i could eat like him 😉

    Feliz Cumpleanos! Hope you live it up proper! I kinda want his AND her pizzas right about now, haha. Como se dice “I want to have your food babies”? LOL I will trust that that came out way less creepy to you than it would for most people… 😉

    Your pizza looks sooo good. I’ve been craving some homemade pizza for a while now! I love putting squash on it too.

    and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! November babies are the best 🙂

    I absolutely loved this entry. His & Hers! so cute. I think about it ALL the time. I look at the donut for too long and I swear I gain 2 lbs just like that 🙂 while men just quit drinking beer for a week and poof! 10 lbs gone. Regardless, I love being a girl! We get to carry around pretty coach bags like the ones you got for your bday 🙂
