Out and About

Hi guys! How’s your weekend going? Hope it’s been lovely so far 😀

Sorry for no post this morning– it was the first night all week that I’ve actually been able to sleep…. so I lived it up 😀

This morning I had an AM training appointment, so I munched bfast cookie cereal with a local peachie before work:


Got a haircut (just a trim):


and then the pilot and I hit up the Main Squeeze for smoothies.


(Orange juice with banana and strawberries)

Since we weren’t quite ready to go home, we hit up the mall.

Just to give you an idea of how sad the Valdosta mall is, here’s a pic:


That’s not an actual store. Outside of the mall, they have pictures of stores… not real ones. Not joking 🙂

Thank you for the seksi black heel vibes- they WORKED!

We have a winner:


I just wanted something basic since my dress has a lot going on. Lurve the front platform and these are super comfy.

We also hit up Targizzle and the health food store.

I’m off to chillax with the pilot and puppers and then it’s TurboFire time. After that, I’m making a *real* dinner! It’s been a while, so I’m excited 😀

Have a wonderful night <3


Today’s workout jam: “Two Weeks” Grizzly Bear (awesome for a nice slow climb)

    Yes!! Just used some Grizzly Bear for long climbs in Spinning class this morning! Check out free tunes (Grizzly boys included) on RCRD LBL (http://rcrdlbl.com/2010/08/06/featured_lollapalooza_playlist)!

    Super cute heels! I have yet to try new Lara’s, but I keep looking for them!

  4. PhillyGirlRuns on August 7, 2010 at 5:50 pm

    loooove the leopard inside those heels!

    And I love the picture-of-a-store thing. One of my local malls did some serious remodeling and expansion starting right before the economy crashed…and so a bunch of the planned stores for the remodel never made it in. And so they have fake storefronts. It’s so funny bc the mall is otherwise normal.

      hahah our mall is not otherwise normal 🙂

  5. Holly @ couchpotatoathlete on August 7, 2010 at 6:25 pm

    What a pathetic mall! But at least you found some black shoes — did you already show us the dress?

    • Fitnessista on August 7, 2010 at 6:28 pm

      no, but i’ll definitely post a pic next week when it arrives 🙂

  6. Kristina on August 7, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    can’t wait to see that dress !! 🙂

    glad you + pilot seem to be feeling better ! 🙂

  7. Pure2raw twins on August 7, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    Glad you got some sleep!!! Love your haircut, I need to get mine done.

  8. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on August 7, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    LOVE the shoes! Can’t go wrong with some basic black pumps. 🙂

  9. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on August 7, 2010 at 6:54 pm

    I love your headband and the sexy heels. I’m glad you get to spend some time with the Pilot.

  10. Ellen@FirednFabulous on August 7, 2010 at 7:10 pm

    Never apologize for sleeping…it’s so important! Uhh yeah, I don’t exactly practice what I preach, but I’m always happier when I make it a priority!

  11. Melissa @ TryingToHeal on August 7, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    haha, i have so many malls like that where i live; ok, where i used to live in OC.

  12. Marilou @ Mostly Healthy on August 7, 2010 at 7:45 pm

    Miaou! Mammacita love the heels! 🙂

  13. Sarah @ Whole Foodie Fitness on August 7, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    I’ve never seen a mall like that before! Just curiouse did you ever get the pink Vibrams? At first I thought they were kinda silly but then I saw this guy wearing them out the other day and I all of a sudden feel like I need them. I need to try the new Lara bars, the other night I had a dream that I found a Whole Foods in some deserted town and they had the new flavors, it was the weirdest dream ever.

  14. Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine on August 7, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    So jealous that you got the new Laras, on sale even!! I can’t wait to find them 🙂 Love those shoes, by the way- the higher the better!

  15. Liz @ Tip Top Shape on August 7, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    Those shoes are adorable!!! I love platform ones. They keep the shoes comfortable 😀

  16. Amy @ Amy Starts to Run on August 7, 2010 at 8:59 pm

    That mall looks like a hip happening place 😉 At least you got some cute shoes out of it 🙂

  17. Jessica (Fit and Clean) on August 7, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    I need to try the new Larabars! I can’t seem to find them near me, though. LOVE the heels…I haven’t worn heels in a looong time, so my guess is that I wouldn’t look very elegant, LOL

  18. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on August 7, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    Sexy shoes! Nice job!!

    • Fitnessista on August 7, 2010 at 10:45 pm


  19. Emily @ Emilyeatsclean on August 7, 2010 at 11:50 pm

    I have GOT to find these new Larabars…..I am dying seeing them on all the blogs and not being able to find and try them!! 🙁

  20. Heather (Heather's Dish) on August 8, 2010 at 12:04 am

    oh my goodness i CRACKED UP at the mall picture and explanation! and then i read it to my hubby and HE started laughing…at least it’s not long til you get a better mall! 🙂

  21. Paige @Running Around Normal on August 8, 2010 at 12:46 am

    Girl the Bloomington mall could give Valdosta mall a run for its money! Sad, sad, sad! Glad you found some heels though – they look great 😀

  22. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on August 8, 2010 at 8:17 am

    Those heels are hot! Glad you finally found a pair. 😀

  23. CaSaundra on August 8, 2010 at 8:22 am

    Who would think finding the perfect black heel can be such a search–but it totally is! Glad you found a pair you like 🙂

  24. Danielle (Runs on Green) on August 8, 2010 at 10:50 am

    Ohh I love the pumps & your headband! I seriously need to start taking tips from Fashion Fridays 🙂

    Have a nice day!

  25. tanyadaily on August 8, 2010 at 11:17 am

  26. Blond Duck on August 8, 2010 at 11:47 am

    Love the hair cut!

  27. Wendy on August 8, 2010 at 12:49 pm

    I’m jealous too!! Can’t find the new Larabars anywhere!!!!

    Love the shoes.

  28. Paola on August 8, 2010 at 3:43 pm
