Make it green

Hey everyone! Howโ€™s your Friday been?


Ours has been pretty lazy, and pretty glorious ๐Ÿ˜€

I started the day with a chocolate cherry bomb:


a training appointment

and then the pilot and I had an appointment to go to.

After that, we decided to get some juice from my favorite place


(I got the supergreen with no celery, extra spinach and a shot of wheatgrass)

the pilot had an AWESOME pineapple, mango and apple juice

and we split a vegan cookie ๐Ÿ˜€

mac  (Source) <— I was too busy happily stuffing my face to take a pic ๐Ÿ˜‰

When we got back to the casa, I had millet on my mind ๐Ÿ˜€

millet  (with almond butter and strawberry Meyer lemon jam)

+ other random snacks

and the pilot made some bbq chicken nachos with his leftover Mexi-meal fixinโ€™s. He told me to take a pic for you guys- he was pretty proud of his creation.


Basically if it has meat and is shrouded in a cheese blanket, heโ€™s a happy kid ๐Ÿ˜€

We got our tax stuff signed and ready to mail off (wahoo! We had filed an extension since the pilot had been gone) and the pilot even watched Glee with me.


So did Vies ๐Ÿ™‚

We just finished our Insanity workout, drank some smoothies and are on a mission for FOOD.

See ya in the morning <3




– New Summer Shape Up workout on Monday

– Epic giveaway on Tuesday

– Amazing OpenSky promo (think Gahhhhhlic and think โ€œfreeโ€) on Wednesday

    Thank you for posting the frijoles recipe earlier! I love making homemade beans, but they are always so bland. I will try your recipe, have a great weekend.

    • Fitnessista on May 28, 2010 at 8:12 pm

      let me know what you think!

  4. Julie @ Pickley Pear on May 28, 2010 at 8:09 pm

    I need to try the chocolate cherry bomb! I really think you and the pilot need to find an equally great single (HOT) pilot for me. I am willing to quit my job and move!

    • Fitnessista on May 28, 2010 at 8:12 pm

      LOL. a lot of new lieutenants just moved into the squadron….. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Mara @ What's For Dinner? on May 28, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    Meyer lemon jam sounds great…I’ve been wondering about making an Indian-inspired lime pickle using meyer lemons (slightly obsessed with lime pickle from my local Indian joint).
    Happy weekend!

  13. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on May 28, 2010 at 10:29 pm

    I am so happy that your pilot is home! ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great weekend together!

  14. Alycia @ Fit n Fresh on May 28, 2010 at 10:34 pm

    lol pilot – the nachos look rockin! And so does your juice! I wish we had some places like that around me, I’d be a regular for sure

    And out of curiousity, how exactly do you pronounce Vies?

  15. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on May 28, 2010 at 10:40 pm

    I agree that your posts become a lot more perky when the pilot is home. I noticed that my posts are also effected by how I’m feeling too.

  16. Kellie on May 28, 2010 at 11:40 pm

    Do the Vegan cookies taste like regular ones? I always see them, but have yet to try them.

  17. Laury @ thefitnessriot on May 28, 2010 at 11:54 pm

    The Pilot, and my husband, and most men are content with meat smothered in cheese :/

    Any dish I make, as long as I have some shredded cheese for him, he’s good to go!

    Have a great weekend!

  18. Nicole @ Geek Turned Athlete on May 29, 2010 at 2:17 am

    Your Pilot is soo cute! Does he know a Kyle Rainey? I know the AF is huge, but it was worth a try!

  19. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on May 29, 2010 at 2:26 am

    Have a super holiday weekend, Gina, Pilot, and Doggies!

  20. Katie on May 29, 2010 at 7:54 am

    What a great way to start the weekend, spending time with your man!!!

    Love those cookies too!! They are delish!

    Have a great weekend girl!!! xoxo

  21. Laura J. on May 29, 2010 at 8:43 am

    Mmm I wouldn’t mind burying my face in that plate of nachos!! Nom Nom. ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Heather (Heather's Dish) on May 29, 2010 at 11:41 am

    i mean, there’s nothing (well, almost nothing) that a blanket of cheese can’t handle ๐Ÿ™‚ hope y’all have a wonderful weekend!

  23. Cassie @ A Very Busy Mind on May 29, 2010 at 12:53 pm

    Aw Gina, you can tell how truly happy you are in this post. ๐Ÿ™‚

    And your juice pictures always make me want some!

  24. jeri on June 1, 2010 at 2:44 pm

    I watched the hangover this weekend and freaked out about how much the pilot looks like the groom in that flick. I know you’ve mentioned it before but Craziness!

  25. Casey @ Chasing Casey on June 2, 2010 at 12:43 am

    I LOVE those Vegan cookies. My friend at school shared one with me once years ago and I’ve been hooked since.
