Kiss of the Shiba

Heyyyyyy πŸ™‚ How are ya?? It’s almost Friday and almost New Year’s Eve! I LOVE New Year’s.. feels so good to start off a fresh year πŸ™‚ I’ll be posting my 2010 re-cap in the AM and my new inspiration board on Monday.

I already picked out someone special to give me a New Year’s kiss:


Pucker up, Vies πŸ˜‰

So last night, I finally got some Indian food in my life πŸ™‚


Roasted organic cauliflower, tomatoes (from the farmer’s market), chickpeas and onions with cumin, curry, garlic, a lil ginjah (aka ginger), sea salt and pepper

I enjoyed mine with a mesquite flour tortilla and the roomies had toasted garlic naan from Trader Joe’s πŸ˜€

We watched movies and I did some work and then called it a night.

In my attempts to have more creative breakfasts everyday (hope ya noticed!), I decided to do a spin on the usual oats.

Cooked up some GF steel cut oats with organic berries, cinnamon, pinch of sea salt and vanilla


In a bowl, I combined goat’s milk plain yogurt


(which I just now realized was a day over the expiration… lovely, haha)

with 1/2 scoop of Sun Warrior and a lil Stevia

yogurt (2)

then layered the goods Oh She Glows style in a glass


Deeeeeelish πŸ˜€ 23g of protein! The version in my brain was prettier than the actual product, though πŸ˜‰

Today’s plan:

to do

(I’m going to Valdosta in January for Jeni’s baby shower! So excited)

I’m out like sauerkraut πŸ˜‰



Who are you kissing at midnight?

  17. Allison @ Food For Healing on December 30, 2010 at 1:07 pm

    Steel cut oats for the win, especially with berries! Holla!

    I’m kissing my grandpa πŸ˜‰ Sounds like it’s gonna be a wild night for me, huh? Oh well.

  21. Namaste Gurl on December 30, 2010 at 1:30 pm

    What a lovely protein- packed idea to make a parfait with oats and yogurt! I’ve done it with dry oats, but never cooked ones πŸ™‚ Trying goats milk yogurt is also on my list…. πŸ˜‰

  22. Amanda (Eating Up) on December 30, 2010 at 1:42 pm

    I’ve only actually kissed someone one year so far! It’s clearly not a priority for me on NYE haha.

  23. Sana on December 30, 2010 at 1:57 pm

    I don’t think I will be kissing anyone, buttt I have lots of special people in my life and that makes me happy πŸ™‚

  24. Kimberly on December 30, 2010 at 2:09 pm

    I’ll be with my wonderful boyfriend and our two Shiba Inu’s! They are the best dogs around πŸ™‚

  25. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on December 30, 2010 at 2:26 pm

    “I’m out like sauerkraut”–That has me truly LOLing. It’s the little things like that that make my day πŸ™‚

    Have fun on New Yrs whatever your plans all entail.

    And your vision board, excited to see it and hear about what’s in store for 2011 for you!

    Oh and the expired yogurt, as long as it didnt stink or smell off, you’re probably ok. I mean, the active cultures in the yogurt, i.e. probiotics and bacteria, will just usually continue to regulate themselves. Not always, but ya know, just consider it a few extra probiotics for your gut than usual πŸ™‚

  26. Katy (The Singing Runner) on December 30, 2010 at 2:51 pm

    I haven’t found my New Years kiss yet… but I’m sure I will! πŸ˜‰

  27. Laura @ prettylittlewords on December 30, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    What a face on that pup! πŸ™‚

  28. Tina on December 30, 2010 at 3:42 pm

    Your New Year’s date is a stud πŸ˜‰

  29. Mo on December 30, 2010 at 3:51 pm

    My ball and chain is going to be out of town, so I too will be smooching the fuzzy snout of my canine. Wishing you, your pilot and your 4 legged children a happy and healthy New Year.

  30. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on December 30, 2010 at 5:14 pm

    My hubby! But only if we stay up that late…

  31. Nikki on December 30, 2010 at 6:07 pm

    Body pump terrifies me!! That will be among my 2011 goals, for sure.

    • Fitnessista on December 30, 2010 at 8:59 pm

      don’t be afraid! it’s very easy to follow

  32. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on December 30, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    I love New Years Eve! Although New Years day sometimes depresses me….no more holidays to look forward to for awhile. πŸ™

  33. Kyla on December 30, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    My boyfriend!

  34. Babs on December 30, 2010 at 7:59 pm

  35. Liz @ Tip Top Shape on December 30, 2010 at 8:04 pm

    You can never go wrong with Indian food! I had some myself yesterday πŸ˜€

  36. Lily on December 30, 2010 at 8:04 pm

    how do you make sunwarrior oats? i ordered em from your promo, but i cant get the oats not to taste chalky!!
    hellp πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on December 30, 2010 at 8:59 pm

      add the sw after the oats are cooked- start with half a scoop, lots of almond milk and some Stevia, cinnamon and vanilla

  37. The Pilot on December 30, 2010 at 8:09 pm

    Pucker up, camel πŸ˜‰

    Check out Hotwire for booking your rental car. You usually save quite a bit of $$$ than when booking directly with agencies so it’s definitely worth a look. The thing is that you don’t know what company’s car you will get until after you have paid, but they only use the five major agencies and tell you upfront which ones they are – so you know that you will be getting a new car and won’t be dealing with some shady rental company.

    Oh and your oats look delish? Are all oats GF or just steel cut?

    • Fitnessista on December 30, 2010 at 11:20 pm

      good to know, thanks!
      not all oats are gf- i buy the bobs red mill brand that are

  39. Priyanka on December 30, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    Each time I see your mesquite tortillas, they remind me of “Thepla” (type of Roti). My New years kiss, my husband πŸ™‚

  40. Cynthia on December 30, 2010 at 10:05 pm

    I will be kissing my soon-to-be husband and toast to our upcoming wedding in 2011 πŸ™‚

  41. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on December 31, 2010 at 8:06 am

    I’m just doing low key drinks with my girlfriends, so no kiss for me this year! Who needs boys? πŸ˜‰
