Nudge Fry

Apparently I need to work on my stir fry skills.

I guess you need to flip and stir with vigor? I just munched my kettle corn and pushed the veggies and chicken around in the pot (we don’t have a wok). The Pilot mentioned my “nudge fry” skills… but stopped teasing me when he ate the meal 😉

Some onions, carrots, local chicken and asparagus, cooked on high with sea salt, cayenne, garlic, tamari and a little brown sugar at the end

with brown rice, and my favorite broccoli slaw (sans chickpeas)

Earlier in the day, I took Bell for a little walk. Sometimes we only make it down a couple of streets and back, but I figure it’s better than nothing.

(she wore those teeny white sunglasses and a hat. I couldn’t handle the cuteness)

and hit up the gym for a little weights workout. I’ve been a HUGE fan of circuits lately, and love going to work out later at night because sometimes I have the whole place to myself. In the morning I have a lot more energy, so if I can squeeze in a cardio DVD, I’ll do it, but like to go to the gym for strength training a couple of nights each week. There’s only so much you can do with a stability ball, and we’re try to decide if we should get suspension trainers to put in the office since we don’t have weights here at the house. It would be a great way for both of us to get in strength training at home.

This morning, I’m off to work, so I just munched a quick bowl of oats and got my snacks ready for the morning:


(TJs kale salad, Larabar, Apple)

and get to come home and see my two favorite people for my lunch break- the Pilot is home today 🙂

Hope you have a happy humpday!

See ya later with a Family post <3



Random: I’m scary excited that this palette is finally out:

    I vote YES for the Naked 2 palette as well, just bought it a couple weeks ago and I love it!!

    That cole slaw looks yummy! What sauce did you use on it?!

    Oh yea I’ve had Naked 2 palette for quite awhile now! I’m not usually big on the newly released make-up items, but I have a good friend who works for urban decay, so she called me before it even came out and talked me into buying it 🙂 It’s AWESOME!!!

      ok, twist my arm 🙂

    Man I wish we had a Trader Joe’s up here in Canada! That salad looks ah-maz-ing.

  5. Felicity on April 19, 2012 at 7:20 am

    YES for the Naked 2!!!
    I’ve had the first for a year now and bought Naked 2 as soon as it came out here — a mmonth or so ago?
    And I LOVE LOVE LOVE it as much as the first one!
    The colours are just brilliant, they cover well and blend really nicely — and the two palettes complete and compliment each other in the best way, so YAY for that 😀
    (oh and I am pleasently surprised with the gloss — the consistency is nice, it smells slightly minty and the colour is just gorgeous (: I’ll definitely buy that one again!)

    I have the first naked palate…LOVE!

    How did you prepare the artichoke? I’ve been wanting to make one at home but just wasnt’ sure how to go about it. Do you dip the pieces in a sauce or just some butter when eating?

    • Fitnessista on April 19, 2012 at 11:54 pm

      we cut the stem and the tops, then boil for 45 minutes
      i dip the pieces in salad dressing 🙂

    My sister and I fight over the naked’s palates. I would look at both of them though. Depending on whether you use tans or pinks you may choose the first one. The first one has more tans, the second more pinks.

    Hi Gina! What do you use on your broccoli slaw? I always see this at TJ’s and wanna give it a shot. Your slaw(s) always look delish 🙂 And thanks in advance!

  10. amanda on April 20, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    haha, nevermind! Just saw the earlier post. I’m a goob 😉

    • Fitnessista on April 20, 2012 at 2:01 pm

      not a goob at all- hope you like it!
