Greatest giveaway for a Monday morning ever =).

I am totally an ice cream person – as far as I’m concerned there are few things in this world that are better than vanilla soft serve in a cone with rainbow sprinkles!!

Congrats Jerilynne!! Email me your shipping info and let me know if you want blonde, chocolate or chocolate almond butter-stuffed ‘roons and I’ll get them in the mail this week!

This afternoon, I was really hankering for some grains in my life, so I rolled with an Ezekiel Engllish muffin with a smidgen of organic butter and cinnamon


It’s amazing how a tiny bit of the real stuff can taste so much better than the entire carton of fake butter.

I got my spin playlist together and got ready to teach.

Here’s today’s spin playlist:


It’s funny, I’m not a big Miley Cyrus fan, but I LOVE that “Party In the USA” song—so catchy and perfect for a warm-up. “One Time” is also an AWESOME song. You might notice some repeats from last week’s playlist—there’s not a lot of new stuff out right now but it worked in my favor because 99% of my packed class was all new people!

Spin and Zumba were so much fun, as usual. It’s going to be weird not teaching while I’m at school and it was a little hard for me to tell them that I’m leaving for a month. I promised raw goodies when I get back though 😉

When I got home from teaching, all I wanted was a cocktail


(It’s coconut water. Such a rebel)

And I started working on dinner:


Brown rice and bean Jumble-aya from Eat, Drink and Be Vegan. It should be ready right when the pilot gets home and I’m also going to make a chicken breast for him, because god forbid he would have a vegan meal 😉

Speaking of the pilot, I saw him flying today. Last time this happened, I got super nauseas. Today, the nausea set it and then I started bawling. Seeing your husband flying hundreds of feet in the air does crazy emotional things to a girl! I was a sobbing goobery mess as I drove onto base. Maybe I’ll get used to it, but not anytime soon! Well I’m off to finish dinner and serve myself a heaping bowl 😀

Have a great night <3

    I love that “Party In the USA” song too! I had no idea that was a Miley song though!

  2. Kelly on August 24, 2009 at 9:19 pm

    I am so the same way! My husband tries to get me to “go look outside” and watch him when they are doing pattern work, and it makes me so nervous and sick. Ack! I am proud of him, but the reality of what he does can be very nerve-wracking!

  3. Louise on August 24, 2009 at 9:23 pm

    Mmmm your dinner looks fantastic. I can totally understand how you feel about your hubby flying – not that my partner is a pilot, but when he called me to tell me he would be flying all over the country for a business trip next week I instantly started bawling – I guess it’s just one of those things!

    I can’t remember if I left this in a comment before (and apologies if I have and am repeating myself!) but I remember a few days ago in response to a question left in a comment you mentioned that you used to have cellulite but through hard work and diet changes you had got rid of it – I found this very interesting and would LOVE it if you could post about that one day – I’m sure there are many gals following this site who would be interested in reading about getting rid of the awful stuff!!

  4. rhodeygirl on August 24, 2009 at 9:23 pm

    oh no!!! sorry about the bawl fest girl.

    i have almost the same exact playlist- same first song and same last song- i just went on to itunes and bought some from the top 10 i liked 😉 i ended up with 15 amazing songs for my run today!!!!!

  5. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on August 24, 2009 at 9:25 pm

    My husband travels ALOT for work via airplane. On 9/11 he was in the air that morning. And every single subsequent year since 2001 he has actually flown either on or within one day of 9/11 and I always worry about him. Not just flying on that day, but flying in general. I can understand how you’d get emotional watching your Pilot fly. It’s scary watching our loved ones do things like that! I remember Scuba diving with my husband a couple times knowing his regulator (air supply) wasn’t working properly and we troubleshot it successfully but yeah, scary 🙂

    I missed the post but had to put my two cents in funfetti cake is awesome but the best part is the icing with the little bead things, it “rocks my face off”

  7. LEIANNA on August 24, 2009 at 9:31 pm

    Nice coconut water cocktail! Sounds scary watching your hubby fly like that!

  8. Heather on August 24, 2009 at 9:41 pm

    That Miley Cyrus song keeps getting stuck in my head and it’s soo annoying but so catchy!

    Your jambalaya looks awesome.

  9. VeggieGirl on August 24, 2009 at 9:41 pm

    I want macaroons 🙁

    Haha, love ya.

  10. angieinatlanta on August 24, 2009 at 9:46 pm

    Love “She Wolf!” It’s definitely my current jam!


  11. Stephanie on August 24, 2009 at 9:49 pm

    I am sorry that you got upset today, but that is sooo totally understandable – I think I would be the same way! Shows how much you love yo’ man right 😉 Din looks fab btw 🙂

  12. Brittany on August 24, 2009 at 9:57 pm

    Jerilynne is one lucky duck!

    So sorry that seeing the pilot flying makes you all emotional, but I think I would be the exact same way.

  13. Biz on August 24, 2009 at 10:17 pm

    Pilot is fine, just doing what he does – I guess it would be hard to watch because of the “what ifs” but what are the chances of that? The same as winning the lottery!

  14. Jenna on August 24, 2009 at 10:36 pm

    omg don’t you just love party in the usa by miley cyrus! i love have great playlists each week!
    you should also listen to Watcha Say by Jason DeRule, i like it!

    • Fitnessista on August 24, 2009 at 11:09 pm

      i did listen to that one! i really liked it but didn’t buy it for some weird reason.. guess i’ll buy it up 😉

  15. Ali on August 24, 2009 at 10:53 pm

    There is such a fine line between being blissfully ignorant (Hey! What’s up?! You look hot in your flight suit!) and being scared all the time. I was in Iraq for 2 months at the same time as my fiance and actually got to receive patients from his choppers at the hospital. I, personally, learned quickly that I can tell him to “be safe” but not to tell him I’m scared because then he won’t “worry me with details.” It’s hard sometimes because I want to unload all my worries and upset feelings on him but know then he’ll feel guilty for doing his job…oh the ups and downs of loving a soldier!

    • Fitnessista on August 24, 2009 at 11:08 pm

      it’s definitely hard- ESPECIALLY when they’re deployed! you have to be selective with what you tell them and how you say it when it’s up to them to keep themselves safe and alert

  16. Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) on August 24, 2009 at 11:05 pm

    Love the new site! And the playlist is totally up my alley.

  17. Tay on August 24, 2009 at 11:35 pm

    LOL I love the new Miley song!! It’s soooo catchy. And I also love Ezekiel english muffins. The best ever. Period.

  18. Melissa on August 24, 2009 at 11:39 pm

    I LOVE the songs on your playlist, especially “I Got A Feeling,” “Party in the USA,” and “She Wolf.” Thanks for the list.. I was just thinking today that I really need a new running list. I’ll definitely go look at some of these.

  19. carolinebee on August 24, 2009 at 11:41 pm

    yikes i’m glad the goobery feeling is gone!! I can’t imagine how weeeeird and scurry that must be! I’m glad he’s back on the ground now, maybe eating chicken 😀

  20. Marissa on August 25, 2009 at 12:49 am

    I totally love Miley Cyrus too!

  21. Sarah (LovIN My Tummy) on August 25, 2009 at 2:05 am

    I totally know how you feel about the Pilot. I am so protective of everyone I love. I’m so glad I have girls. If I had boys and they wanted to play football, I would absolutely go into convulsions at every game.

  22. Erica on August 25, 2009 at 6:30 am

    Congrats to the winner! Glad you had two great classes tonight (loving that spin play list). I bet your participants are SUPER sad you won’t be there. You’ll have totally packed classes when you get back! That jumble looks awesome! Your household is so much like mine- last night I made Josh a steak in a white potato and I had tons of veggies and white beans haha

  23. Shelby on August 25, 2009 at 6:39 am

    I hate Miley Cyrus but I love that new Shakira song!!!

  24. MizFit on August 25, 2009 at 6:40 am

    MAN everyone is getting a blogredo 🙂

    I need me some blogbotox as I click here and think DAMN YOU LOOK PURDY…

  25. bethieruns on August 25, 2009 at 8:16 am

    Try “Animal” by Nickelback. Can’t get enough, especially for spin class!

    • Fitnessista on August 25, 2009 at 8:39 am

      it’s one of my favorites! PERFECT for sprints!

  26. Ada on August 25, 2009 at 8:30 am

    Wow, that must have been terrifying to see the Pilot flying in the air. I can’t imagine what that must have been like.

    Loba by Shakira is the perfect song for spin! I’m kinda obsessed with it right now:)Sweet Dreams, by Beyonce, would also be a good one for spin!

  27. Shannon on August 25, 2009 at 8:54 am

    missed the move, but i love the new site! and a belated happy anniversary to you and the pilot 🙂 bummed i missed the macaroon giveaway, but i guess i’ve already had the pleasure of trying them… shouldn’t be greedy!

  28. Laura W on August 25, 2009 at 8:58 am

    I think I would feel the same way if I had a Pilot… like, you know that’s what they do every day, but it’s still really hard to watch!

    I love that Miley Cyrus song, too… it’s so catchy, even in that Walmart commercial!

  29. Emily on August 25, 2009 at 8:59 am

    Yum, that jambalaya looks amazing! 🙂

    I love the new She Wolf song by Shakira. I heard it the other day in the car and definitely rolled the windows down and blasted it. 🙂

  30. julie on August 25, 2009 at 9:18 am

    awesome playlist! I’m coming to your spin class next week. haha I wish! hope you’re feeling better now that the pilot is on solid ground 🙂

  31. Sarah on August 25, 2009 at 10:32 am

    I can’t imagine watching, it would be hard for me too! Perhaps someday it will get easier 😉

  32. Jerilynne on August 25, 2009 at 10:36 am

    Yeah I was so excited about winning that I actually dreamed about macaroons last night (I’m not kidding!)!!

    The jumble-aya looks tasty! I have ED&BV, I’ll have to make it myself sometime =).

  33. Katie on August 25, 2009 at 10:50 am

    I don’t know what it is about that song but I love Party in the USA too! I think its a little old for her but who am I to say….

    I can’t imagine what it would be like to see my husband flying. Oh gosh. Wow.

    PS: For some reason your pictures didn’t show up in my google reader today. (on all posts, not just the new one) I just read the post from your actual blog instead of the reader and it showed up fine. Hopefully it will fix itself!!

  34. K on August 25, 2009 at 11:24 am

    I’m in love with your English muffin/buttah/cin combo! Yum-ME!

    21 Guns – great song! I don’t blame you for crying when you saw the Pilot, I can’t even imagine that. I’d probably have a very similar reaction!!

    Have a great Tuesday, G$!

  35. Jamie on August 25, 2009 at 11:41 am

    Just wanted to drop in and let you know I have nominated you for “The Adorable Blog” award! I love your blog =)

  36. amy (veganissexy) on August 25, 2009 at 12:53 pm

    Oh sad. That is terrible 🙁 I can’t imagine what that feels like….everytime my hubby goes for a fishing trip I get kind of uneasy about him being on the big water, but that’s not even close to having your love up in the air! I’m sure there will come a time when it gets easier 🙂 Take care!

  37. A on August 25, 2009 at 2:02 pm

    Yay… I love when you put your play lists on the blog!! I like getting ideas for my step class!!! Grazie!

  38. Jenny on August 25, 2009 at 6:23 pm

    okay so i totally thought i was the only one who loved that Mi-Cy song .. seriously, i can’t stop listening to it!
