Late night vampire chaos

Hiiiiii ๐Ÿ˜€ Happy FRIDAY!

I just wanted to say thank you SO much for all of your amazing comments on my last post about stopping birth control pills. Not gonna lie, it was one of those moments when I wondered โ€œis this a topic I should really be writing aboutโ€ and just decided to roll with it. You made me so glad I did โ€“ what a beautiful group of intelligent and insightful ladies yaโ€™ll are ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you! I also wanted to reiterate that I am not by any means telling you I think you should stop taking birth control pills. We are so fortunate to have the FREEDOM and ability to choose a method that is right for us. I always say listen to what your body is telling you to do, not some silly blogger ๐Ÿ˜‰

โ€˜Twas quite the hootenanny at the New Moon midnight showingโ€ฆ


I took the pic via Crackberry, but as you can see, the line to get into the theatre was INTENSE. We waited outside in the cold for an hour until they let everyone in. By some extreme act of magic, we got awesome seats for the four of us and waited one more hour until the movie finally started.

*I snacked on some snuck-in air popped popcorn with vegan chocolate chips*


It was a-freaking-mazing. Exponentially better than the first one. You know itโ€™s good when I donโ€™t fall asleep in the theatre ๐Ÿ˜‰ And I donโ€™t care how hot and cut Jacob looks without a shirt- Iโ€™ll take this pale-faced Romeo any day <3

Youโ€™re welcome ๐Ÿ™‚ Haha

I got back to the casa around 2:45 (party animal!) where my own personal Edward was waiting for me, crashed out and slept until 10am!

Bfast was 1 organic egg + 1 egg white separated into two microwave puffs, on top of an Ezekiel english muffin with Earth Balance and cayenne.


And a snowman full of gingerbread spice tea


I love starting the day with snowman dishes ๐Ÿ˜€


It was kinda frantic trying to cook things last minute for tonight โ€“I prepped the fish, artichoke dip and stuffed mushrooms- and then had a meeting.



Bananner with mesquite, 1 T almond butter and cinnamon

Iโ€™m off to do a quick back and biceps workout, 3 mile run, and then come back and clean/get ready for tonightโ€™s dinner party. I see POMtinis in my future ๐Ÿ™‚

Pics to come ๐Ÿ˜€

Have a lovely Friday <3

    Ooh and I finally got some mesquite! So excited!!

  2. cocoNUTbutter on November 20, 2009 at 3:30 pm

    I love this blog. Those ezekiel muffins look great. I bet coconut oil or coconut butter would be great on them also. You are on my blogroll ๐Ÿ™‚

    Gina – What happened to Indian food wednesdays?? ๐Ÿ˜€ I miss them. But seriously, do you find that Indian food dishes are generally prepared with a lot of oil or is it just certain dishes? I am wondering if I’ve been just ordering the wrong things or if there is a way to politely ask them for less oil in their food? Any ideas?

  4. Katie on November 20, 2009 at 3:51 pm

    I was interested in how New Moon stacked up. I need to read those books it seems like such a big deal and I feel so out of the loop!

    You are one wild woman. Better keep an eye on you ๐Ÿ˜‰ DId you see the stats for movie popcorn?! Jeez you can’t eat that stuff gotta bring it in! Your version sounds much tastier anyways do you let the chocolate melt onto the popcorn?

  5. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on November 20, 2009 at 4:00 pm

    I love your snowman mug. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Sarah on November 20, 2009 at 4:05 pm

    Hope you have an awesome dinner party! And thank YOU for sharing topics like BC pills with us, we all need to continue having discussions like these so that we can think and make the right decisions for ourselves.

    Have a great weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your snowmen plates are so cute ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I’m seeing New Moon tonight and I am SO excited!!! I still haven’t read the books yet though.

  10. Carolyn on November 20, 2009 at 4:11 pm

    POMtinis rock!

  11. michelle on November 20, 2009 at 4:41 pm

    i came acoss your comment on genas blog, about how you stopped b control.that was awhile ago but i had checked back on her site because there were so many good(and some scarilly(not a word:)un-informed) opinions, its a topic worth discussing. gena can be pretty er..honest? lol

  12. Shelby on November 20, 2009 at 4:54 pm

    I’m seeing New Moon saturday! I’m not as obsessed as my friends are but the books were amazing. The first movie bombed though, totally turned me off. I’m glad they have a new director.

    I hate to say it…but I don’t find either boy attractive! I’m team edwards but I gotta say…jacob has got a fineeeeee body ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. Michal on November 20, 2009 at 5:11 pm

    Wasnt new moon the best! Last night at the theater it was chaos im so happy i got my tickets weeks in advance. Enjoy your weekend girl!

  14. Mama Pea on November 20, 2009 at 5:24 pm

    I think I’m taking the night off of blogging so I can rent Twilight and then make Daddy take me to New Moon this weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m so glad you LOVED it!

  15. Liz on November 20, 2009 at 5:25 pm

    New Moon was SO much better than Twilight. I have to admit, though….it may have turned me onto Team Jacob. For the books I am 100% for Edward (Jacob is frustrating in the books) but in the movie I found myself rooting for Jacob. Weird, right??

    • Kyla on November 20, 2009 at 5:37 pm

      Liz, I totally agree with you!! Jake IS a bit of a booger in the books but in the New Moon movie he was so, for lack of better words, mouthwatering.
      Although Edward is still gorgeous… and rich. ha!

  16. Katie on November 20, 2009 at 5:44 pm

    Liz I totally agree with you. It seemed to me that Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner have way more chemistry on camera than her and ROb Pattinson. Kstew and taytay were way hot and I found myself rooting more for Jacob.

    • Fitnessista on November 21, 2009 at 12:26 am

      yes, their chemistry was OUTTA CONTROL!

  17. Charlie on November 20, 2009 at 6:03 pm

    My sister and I were trying to count Jacob’s abs…lost count. Yummy.

    I read TCOYF (and quit the pill for 6 mos…my face broke out so bad so I started again. Gosh darn it, I’d love to be free from those chemicals!) I loved Toni’s point about men being fertile from puberty to death, and women only being fertile for a few days a month and a third of their lives. Hmmm…WHO should be taking the birth control anyway?! ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Dara @ MyVeryFirstKitchen on November 20, 2009 at 6:32 pm

    I am going to see new moon in 2 hours!!! Oh I am SOOO excited!! I already know I am going to HATE Edward b/c he is a meany!! But then he comes back ๐Ÿ™‚ how i love the twilight series. Perhaps a seperate twilight post for all of the food bloggies is necessary for discussion! haha


  19. Jenna on November 20, 2009 at 7:12 pm

    wow! there are soo many twilight fans!!
    can’t wait to hear all about the dinner party tonight!

  20. Ashley on November 20, 2009 at 7:59 pm

    Ooo lala. Can I be Team Brad Pitt (the original hot vampire)?

    I always sneak in water and a snack, which is usually a bag of cut up fruit. There ain’t no way I’m paying $5 for a small bottle of water or eating that butter laden popcorn!

    Glad you had a good time!

    • Fitnessista on November 21, 2009 at 12:25 am

      hahah of course!

  21. kristi (sweet cheeks) on November 21, 2009 at 12:04 am

    yay for new moon! I am seeing it on Sunday and am SO EXCITED!

    Where did you get that adorable snowman mug?!?

    • Fitnessista on November 21, 2009 at 12:25 am

      targizzle ๐Ÿ˜€

  22. Lauren @ Let Them Eat Lentils on November 21, 2009 at 12:43 am

    Just reviewed your last post. I WILL be checking that book out. I do think it’s different when you’re married and potentially CAN have little fitnessistas/pilots so I don’t know if quite I’m there yet, but I’ve already stopped with dying my hair and after that, nothing is a hardship right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Fitnessista on November 21, 2009 at 10:21 am

      hahah i think that’s the hardest step, too ๐Ÿ˜€

  23. Paige (Running Around Normal) on November 21, 2009 at 9:23 am

    Yay for the good response with the BC. However, might I add, that when you and the pilot do have babies, your mini pilots/fitnessistas will be ADORABLE!
    Hope you had fun last night:)

  24. deisegirl on November 21, 2009 at 9:30 am

    I need to start looking in the shops for snowmen plates, bowls etc. If this is not the ideal time for it I don’t know what is. I’ve already spotted a few penguin-related things to add to the collection (oh dear!)

    • Fitnessista on November 21, 2009 at 10:17 am

      ME TOO! i love winter dishes and now is the time to buy it up ๐Ÿ˜€

  25. Melissa (Melissa Likes To Eat) on November 21, 2009 at 10:46 am

    I’ve been off the pill for about seven months and haven’t noticed a difference except my skin is really breaking out now. BOO!!!! I think I have to go back on the pill though (for several reasons). Oh well….
    Glad you liked the movie!!!

  26. Marianne on November 28, 2009 at 11:28 pm

    I just don’t get the hype around the guy that plays Edward (I can’t remember the actor’s name). I can’t see how he’s that attractive?! He has a very odd face. Although, I’m not really into the guy that plays Jacob either. I think I’m the only one.

    • Fitnessista on November 29, 2009 at 9:31 am

      hahah i think you’re the only one, too ๐Ÿ˜‰ which actors do you think are hot?? please tell me you like gerard butler?? brad pitt?
