No Carb Left Behind

Hi friends 🙂 It’s Indian Food Wednesday! It’s been a while since I’ve celebrated –a sour dosa will traumatize you, let me tell ya- but I have a fun dinner in store.

Before I get into the usual shenanigans, the winner of the Live Well Core Bag is Kayla, whom I’ve already emailed to share the great news 🙂 Congrats, Kayla!

Everyone else who signed up for the contest will be offered a sweet discount on the bag- $99 instead of the usual $129. I use mine multiple times a day and lurrrrrve it 😀


Last night, I had dinner with a friend at BJs. Instead of my usual blackened salmon salad, I decided to give the gluten-free pizza a whirl.


You know in Eat, Pray, Love, when she slowly and passionately devours an entire pizza? That was me last night 😉

I definitely had a relationship with my pizza. It was short-lived, but glorious.

This morning, I met up with work friends for a spin class. It was mediocre, but the instructor was hilarious. He was so cute and little, but I didn’t appreciate the fact that he sang the entire time. He even used song lyrics to instruct the class:

-Song says: There’s nooooooo holding back

-Instructor says: No holding back now! You can do it

-Song says: Just reeeeeeach in your heart

-Instructor says: Reach in your heart and go for it!

I die. A thousand times.

Breakfast made up for everything. 🙂

The star of the show was THIS:

smoked salmon

Wild smoked salmon, which will always remind me of the Bahamas- I had smoked salmon every single day we were there 🙂

I took two pieces of brown rice toast and spread goat cheese on each slice, topped with 2 egg whites, a serving of smoked salmon, arugula, sea salt and Garlic Gold


After using organic butter to butter the outside of the toast, I pan-seared each side — the toast got crispy and the cheese melted

A sandwich of everything I love:

Well I’m going to go back to sleep for an hour or so- I’m exhausted this morning! Bella is already in bed waiting for me 🙂

Have an amazing day and I’ll see ya later <3

    I’ve been having some tummy problems so my nutritionist has taken me off gluten. Do you have a gluten free store bought pizza crust you’ve found (for pizza making at home)? Just curious!

      they’re a packaged one that’s delicious- i’ll look and see which brand it is

    FYI if the class you were taking was a Les Mills RPM class, that’s the way the instructors are trained. There’s a loose script to follow and it includes singing along and/or incorporating song lyrics. You’ll notice it in any RPM/Body Pump/Body Jam/etc etc. classes. (Former Les Mills class instructor here)

    That sandwich looks good!

    But the salmon is raw right? I’ve never had raw salmon before lol.
    How safe is it to consume and how is the taste?

    • Fitnessista on January 3, 2011 at 11:49 pm

      the taste is wonderful! salty 🙂 it’s pretty safe to consumer if you buy it from a good source

    ha! i’m just reading this post now, a few years late to the party i guess…
    but i had to comment because i laughed out loud at my desk when i read about your spin instructor who used the song lyrics for motivation – one of my favorite spin instructors here does that too! she’s older and her music is older but the lady can work it. she totally inspires me to be as awesome as she is when i’m her age. and any spin instructor that can make you smile and giggle a bit when you’re dying on the bike is priceless! cheesy or not i’m totally doing that if i ever instruct spin!
    oh and i was totally living in jacksonville when you were in valdosta and used to travel to jax for civilization but i didn’t read back then 🙁 now i’m in the mountains of east tennessee and miss civilization (and publix)!
