On the road again

Hey hey hey! HAPPY FRIDAY!!!! Hope you’re all having a great day so far and have lots of fun planned for this weekend 😀 You might have noticed already, but I have a new header courtesy of the amazing Zesty Cook who was so kind to pimp my blog a little. If you haven’t been to his site, definitely check it out and get your free ebook while you’re there!

We’re on the road to Orlando right now!

Viesa has been rotating between the pilot’s lap:


and her bed in the back of the Jeep:


While Bella has been curled up like a little baby in my arms:


At one point, I had two dogs in my lap. Not safe (Viesa was shortly sent to her bed in the back) but it was pretty funny.


To rewind to this morning, I started the day bright and early with a Cullen juice before my first training appointment:


(3 carrots, 1 small beet and a Fuji apple)

I came home for a half hour in between clients and grabbed a nanner with AB and also finished off the rest of AB in the jar:


1 more training appointment and then I came home and had the most aesthetically-UNappealing snack I think I’ve ever made.


What’s that supposed to be? Well it LOOKS like some kind of spicy Indian dish but is in fact chocolate pudding. I really wanted to make this after seeing versions in my raw ‘cook’books and on the lovely Sarah’s blog, but I got a little lazy with my Vitamixing and didn’t blend it all the way. So my raw chocolate pudding had chunks of avocado and date in there. (I had mixed 1/2 cado, 1 date and 1/2 tbs raw cocoa powder). Ehhhh, it tasted pretty bueno but hopefully won’t be as funny-looking next time.

After the chocolate pudding disaster, we packed up our stuff and got on the road! We should probably be into civilization within the next hour and a half and then IT’S PARTY TIME!!! My cousin’s bday was yesterday, so we’re definitely due for some celebrating- I told her the Valdosta party train was coming to town 😉

We’re planning on going to Opa for dinner and maybe Disney tomorrow, but I’ll be back soon with reports of our shenanigans 😉

Have a happy Friday my friends <3

    Your puppies are adorable.

    And this may sound weird, but your hair is amazing! Do you mind if I ask what you use? The humidity here is making my hair one big mess and I am dying to find some really good hair products.

    Hope you have an amazing weekend.
    Take care!

    Happy Fourth! I love your new header! 🙂

  15. Jordan on July 4, 2009 at 1:38 pm

    I agree. I always thought Viesa looked way bigger. Weirdddd.

  16. Fitnessista on July 4, 2009 at 4:11 pm

    hey lauren- thanks! i use the purology (or pureology.. cant remember how to spell it!) shampoo and conditioner (my madre is a stylist so she hooks it up) and the best thing for humidity that i've found is the fredrick fekkai glossing cream- they sell it at victorias secret, sephora, and bath and body works. that stuff works WONDERS for humidity!
