It’s gotta be 105degrees in here

Hey everyone! Hope your weekend is wrapping up nicely ๐Ÿ˜€

Thanks so much for all of your lovely compliments on last nightโ€™s dinner fest. To those of you that asked: the place settings are from Pier 1. My dadoo and stepmom sent them to us and I LOVE them ๐Ÿ™‚

So today was a cleaning extravaganza.

I prepared for the insanity by having a super satisfying breakfast

feast

Oatmeal cooked in water with cinnamon and 1 scoop Sun Warrior, salad with balsamic and a 2 egg white puff.

I love salad for breakfast ๐Ÿ™‚

We cleaned upstairs for most of the day, and then I hit up the gym for a training appointment and 40 minutes on the elliptical.

MY OTHER VIDEOS

Lunch was lasagna leftovers, which taste even more amazing the next day.

Iโ€™m off to make some dinner and get the Winter Shape Up post ready for publishing, but hereโ€™s some FUN news!

Remember when I went to culinary school?

    Didn’t know that about freezing fish! Like literally freeze the water and all?! Hmmm…interesting!

      yup, water and all!

    So pumped for the shape-up!

    And I luuurrrvve the idea of salad for breakfast! I’m going to have to do that more often!

    I don’t eat fish, but I’m curious – do you literally freeze the salmon in a bag full of water, therefore freezing the fish in a block of ice? Or do you just splash some water in there? That’s a really great tip – I hate freezer burn!

    • Fitnessista on January 17, 2010 at 10:15 pm

      hey molly,
      yes you fill the bag with water and freeze it into a block of ice. it works beautifully!

    • Fitnessista on January 18, 2010 at 8:19 am

  14. simpledaisy on January 18, 2010 at 7:51 am

    I don’t know if I could do salad for breakfast:)
    Usually I just throw my greens into my egg whites and pop it in the microwave! Probably the same thing but hey!
    That’s great that you were featured in a magazine!! yeah for you:)

  15. Paige (Running Around Normal) on January 18, 2010 at 7:54 am

    Yes, very fun!! Yay ๐Ÿ˜€ And pretty awesome they included a bloggy link.
    Can’t wait for the shape up plan! I missed last years, but was looking over some of the workouts yesterday.

  16. Jenna on January 18, 2010 at 8:30 am

    Congrats!! Defs agree that lasagna is better the next day!!

  17. lauren on January 18, 2010 at 10:10 am

    yay for being featured in the enews!

    also, do you use a smaller pan to make egg puffs? or do you have some other trick for making them the perfect size?

    • Fitnessista on January 18, 2010 at 10:11 am

      i microwave them in a glass bowl that i spray with olive oil ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Diana (Soap & Chocolate) on January 18, 2010 at 11:25 am

    Hey congrats on the 105 degrees mention! It’s effective marketing because I want to go! Tee hee… Your dinner party did look SO good too, btw. You are doing your 105degrees teachers proud even with the non-raw stuff I’m sure!

  19. Heather @ Get Healthy With Heather on January 18, 2010 at 1:49 pm

    I would never have thought to freeze my fish in water probably because it would get all icey around it.

    Sweet that you’re featured!

  20. Adrien on January 18, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    congrats on the 105degrees assignment!
    looked like tons of fun!

  21. Elle on January 19, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    Congrats on your feature! One question I’ve been trying to figure out for a while – what exactly is an egg white puff and how do you make it? They look delicious!
