Not As Planned

Hi guys! 😀 How’s your weekend been?

Thanks for your support on my breakup with running. I shed a few [very small] tears but am glad I broke it off- he was kind of flaky and showed definitely creeper potential.

So yesterday, I made brown rice burgers for lunch.

brown rice burger

I know what you’re thinking..

“That doesn’t look like brown rice burgers”

You’re exactly right. Recipe from my brain didn’t translate well to the real world.

I just ate salmon for dinner.


With a maple dijon sauce. It was good.. but not as good as the one I had in Orlando:


Everything is better in Orlando.

Anyway, the reason I just had salmon (no veg, no salad) was because I ruined my dinner with this:

moonie pie

My final Moonie Pie for Heather’s contest.



A large quantity of peanut butter puffs. Sorry I killed your stash, pilot 😉 I really wish it were customary to eat cereal for every single meal. I’d be all over that 😀

After my really weird dinner, Ashley and I went to see Date Night. It was hilarious and definitely worth seeing in the theatre.

I came home, crashed out and was woken up by this one…


Getting sick… on the bed. Nothing like washing all the bedding at 3am. I guess I better get used to it if we want to have youngins one of these days 😉

Time for this girl to train a client and then I’ll be putting together all of the Show Me Your Smoothie submissions. If you’d like to add a fun smoothie recipe to the mix, please send it with a pic to fitnessista at gmail dot com.


See ya in the morning <3

    Your moon pie looks soooo good- better than the original! And I’m glad you left Running- creeper status is definetly a deal-breaker 😉

  2. Heather (Heather's Dish) on April 18, 2010 at 6:05 pm

    oh man, i HATE it when the puppers get sick! so sorry it was at 3am 🙁 sending in my new favorite smoothie…NOW! 🙂

  3. Nicole @ Making Good Choices on April 18, 2010 at 6:05 pm

    I’m so so excited to see all the smoothies you put together from everyone! I love putting together new combos because I’m not that adventurous on my own. And cereal and dessert def qualify for dinner every so often!

  4. Allie (Live Laugh Eat) on April 18, 2010 at 6:06 pm

    I would eat cereal all day every day. Let’s start a revolution 🙂

    • Fitnessista on April 18, 2010 at 6:08 pm

      i’m totally down 🙂

  5. Ellen on April 18, 2010 at 6:26 pm

    PB puffs…mmmm. I love the way you eat…even when you’re bad, you’re good!

  6. Erica on April 18, 2010 at 6:28 pm

    I think its fabulous that you have decided to focus on the activities that make you happy 🙂 Sometimes random meals are the best (and exactly what you want). Sorry the puppers got sick. Frank has definitely done that to us before as well. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday

  7. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on April 18, 2010 at 6:29 pm

    Hey girl I hope the rest of the day goes well, looks like it has been rather rough 🙁

  8. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on April 18, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    I would eat cereal all day every day if I could. Especially peanut butter puffins or something of the sort.

  9. VeggieGirl on April 18, 2010 at 6:57 pm

    Cereal is always daily over here 😀 I’m addicted to the One Lucky Duck raw buckwheat crispies cereal.

    Hope Viesa gets 100% well soon!

  10. Karyn on April 18, 2010 at 7:00 pm

    i eat cereal 2 or 3 times a day. it is soooo good! 🙂

  11. Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) on April 18, 2010 at 7:01 pm

    I used to have cereal for dinner all the time in college when nothing from the dining hall looked appealing. No shame in breaking into that once in a while. 😉

    • Fitnessista on April 18, 2010 at 7:04 pm

      for real- in college i ate cereal ALL the time. and it was amazing

  12. Lauren @ BIOCHEMISTA on April 18, 2010 at 7:03 pm

    I have a post-dinner cereal obsession goin on over here lately 😉 Girl’s gotta have dessert, right??

  13. Jenna on April 18, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    On my vacation, I found a renewed love for cereal. I don’t think I could EVER get sick of it!

  14. Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg on April 18, 2010 at 7:44 pm

    Awww, I hope she’s okay! Whenever our dogs do stuff like that, we say the same thing: good practice! 🙂

  15. Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin on April 18, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    Aww sick dogs are no fun! Mmm that moon pie looks GOOD.

  16. Pure2raw twins on April 18, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    Your moon pie looks yummy!! I used to love eating cereal for every meal…man I miss those days, haha.

    I have not run in so long either…I have been enjoying more weigh lifing and yoga! oh and regards to Shiva Rea new dvd you reviewed…I have to agree that Lori and I found it to be a bit much. At first I loved it, but then it was just hard for me to stick to it. A little beyond me I guess, but something fun when I need something different I guess.

    Hope you are doing well!! xoxo and we have to get together soon!! miss u

  17. Katie on April 18, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    Mmmm…I’ve never had this peanut butter cereal. I need to invest in some of that!

    And I’m sorry Viesa got sick. I hate it when my chihuahua gets sick!

  18. Lauren @ eater not a runner on April 18, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    I’m with you on the cereal…..good any time of day!

  19. jen trinque on April 18, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    I love it when you eat tons of salad beasts and I love it when you eat moon pies and peanut butter cereal! A good example of eating in the real world 🙂 I hope your puppy dog is feeling better, too.

  20. Kelsey on April 18, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    have a great training session with ur client. xo

  21. Kellie on April 18, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    I have three “youngins” and unfortunately cannot count how many times I have washed bedding at 3am.

    • Fitnessista on April 18, 2010 at 9:51 pm

      hahah… oh no….

  22. Allison @ Food For Healing on April 18, 2010 at 10:31 pm

    poor puppy! Kids do that alot too, and cry, so get used to it haha.

    oh i looove cereal!

  23. Molly on April 18, 2010 at 11:16 pm

    good for you for sticking with the activities you enjoy! running is definitely my “thing” and has been since kindergarten (it’s so weird to say that but true! kindergarten was my first track meet!) but I’ve always said that everyone has an activity that they love- it doesn’t have to be running!

    And cereal is aaaamazing! Love it!

  24. brittany on April 19, 2010 at 12:23 am

    could one of these days mean SOON about having some YOUNGINS around?!? 😀

  25. Kilee on April 19, 2010 at 12:24 am

    Yah! I’m so excited to see everyone’s smoothies! It sounds like you had a nice weekend. Your salmon looks delish. I really want you to try my two new raw macaroon recipes! I just posted them on my new blog. Have a great night!

  26. Anna on April 19, 2010 at 12:59 am

    Ok, seriously, I have been DOWNING those peanutbutter puffs like crack lately. I’m glad to see someone else is as addicted to cereal as me, although I have been trying to limit my panda puff-intake. It’s a love/hate relationship.

  27. The Pilot on April 19, 2010 at 1:37 am

    My Puffs! Oh well, you deserve it for taking care of the little trouble maker last night. Love you!

  28. MizFit on April 19, 2010 at 6:28 am

    wait. Im replying under the PILOT?
    he reads your blog?!
    Ive totally spaced my pithy response now….and am jealous as theres a small chance mine doesnt even KNOW I blog.

    xo xo

  29. Kristin (Cook, Bake and Nibble) on April 19, 2010 at 8:11 am

    I’m sure the brown rice ‘burger’ tasted good! And that salmon and moonie pie look AWESOME… drooool. I wish cereal for dinner were acceptable, too. I guess it is, but I think the food blogging community might think I was weird. Or maybe I’d start a trend 😉


    • Fitnessista on April 19, 2010 at 9:35 am

      start a trend please- i’ll be right there with you!

  30. Christina on April 19, 2010 at 9:03 am

    I love cereal – Especially those puffs! I don’t think it’s weird to have for dinner but the combo of salmon and cereal does sound a little weird!
