Random Treasures

Hey hey hey πŸ˜€ How’s your night going?? I’m so glad ya’ll are excited to follow along with Ron’s vegan bodybuilding progress. I think it will be really easy for him to keep his muscle mass using plant-based protein πŸ™‚

Today was filled with lots of packing, but the bonus of moving is finding random treasures along the way.

A few:


A Target nametag (was in management at Target for the few months we lived in Fayetteville), a food journal (one of many I found- so interesting to see how my eats and workouts have changed over the years), Wicked tickets (from last May) and a dance camp CD (circa summer 2003).

Since so many of you were curious about my outlet buys on Sunday, here are the goods πŸ˜€

Shirts from Lucky to chill in (super sale! I paid $15 for BOTH shirts)


lululemon outfit:


The pants are the softest, most beautiful fabric I’ve ever encountered. I want to wrap myself in a lululemon pant cocoon. As far as the sports bra goes, I LOVE it. Perfect level of support and they have so many fun colors.

and my new love:

purse (2)

I’ve never really rocked the clear thing before, but fell in love with the bag. When the Pilot agreed that it was awesome and offered it as a little gifty with the wallet, I had to do it πŸ˜‰

After packstravaganza, I took a Zumba class that Jessica was teaching – she’s co-teaching the Zumbathon with me this weekend πŸ™‚ It was a BLASTY!

I shook my booty for an hour, then went with the Pilot on a date to Two Friends.

The usual portabella mushroom with goat cheese and balsamic glaze:


The Pilot had a bacon, candied pecan and bleu cheese flatbread:


Cheers πŸ™‚


For my entree, I ordered the same thing I got on our anniversary- Peruvian oven roasted tilapia with a lemon vinaigrette + asparagus


The Pilot had breaded pork tenderloin with bacon and creamy cheese grits.


We were happy kids πŸ˜€

Apparently I didn’t get enough carbs today though, because when we got home I was still HANGRY. Munched a piece of bread and a banana to quell the beast πŸ˜‰

Off to cuddle with the puppers.



See ya in the AM with a crazy awesome Glass straw promo πŸ™‚


Found any random treasures lately?

    So no Indian food for you tonight? πŸ™‚

    I love that tank you bought, well and the shirts and the Coach bag! You lucky girl. The Pilot is so good to you!

    I’ve wanted to try your glass straws for a while, I can’t wait for the promo!

    • Fitnessista on September 8, 2010 at 10:01 pm

      no, i was feeling like fish tonight…
      and still a little traumatized from having indian last week, watching the cove and being sick all night :/

  2. Jenna on September 8, 2010 at 9:59 pm

    That’s so crazy! I used to work at a Target store too. Twins! πŸ™‚

  3. Mary (A Merry Life) on September 8, 2010 at 10:00 pm

    Love the lululemon outfit. Really cute.

  4. Raya on September 8, 2010 at 10:04 pm

    Wahoo, glass straws!! I’ve been waiting! Those grits look amazing…I am craving carbs so bad right now. Can’t decide if it’s necessary or I just want them. πŸ™‚

  5. Chelsea @ Strawberry Sweat on September 8, 2010 at 10:05 pm

    Wow, great loot! I love the bag too! I need a Pilot to buy me things πŸ™‚

  6. Caitlin (EatFeats) on September 8, 2010 at 10:14 pm

    It is so fun to stumble upon memories (and to go outlet shopping). I’ve been purging my room lately, and come across so many forgotten items. My favorite things are those that were given to me by my grandparents.

  7. Cara Craves... on September 8, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    If only Lulu was more friendly on the budget; I think then I would have a full closet full. Such a cute outfit.

  8. April @ Crazy Fabulous Life on September 8, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    Oh snap, no indian!?

    • Fitnessista on September 9, 2010 at 9:58 am

      no i was still traumatized from having indian last week, watching the cove and being sick all night

  9. Paige @Running Around Normal on September 8, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    I looooove the PowerY bra. Love love love! You can find them in the loot section on line from time to time, too.

  10. Joelle (The Pancake Girl) on September 8, 2010 at 10:36 pm

    Gah, you are making me want to pour my paycheck into Lululemon.. I pass it every night on the way home from my gym, and I really want one of their gym bags now. SO cute. Hopefully the quality of their products matches their prices. πŸ˜‰ Have a great night!

  11. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on September 8, 2010 at 10:40 pm

    I looove lululemon. I have the same fabric but its a jacket. It’s ridiculous.

  12. Coley on September 8, 2010 at 11:01 pm

    Where did you get that lulu tank? I can’t find it on their website!!

    • Fitnessista on September 9, 2010 at 9:56 am

      i got it at the outlet- they had a ton!

  13. Lily @ Lily's Health Pad on September 8, 2010 at 11:07 pm

    I can’t believe I’ve never been to lululemon! Those pants do look SO comfy!

  14. Felicia on September 8, 2010 at 11:07 pm

    Goat cheese and portabellas looks so good- I’m gonna have to recreate that ASAP! I’m also gonna have to steal those comfy looking pants lol.

  15. Allison @ livingoneday on September 8, 2010 at 11:10 pm

    Yay! I can’t wait for the straw promo!! Getting my debit card ready! Haven’t really found good treasures per se, but I have found lots of clothes and shoes to sell on eBay!

  16. VeggieGirl on September 8, 2010 at 11:16 pm

    Random treasures found = some old family photos. Always a hoot πŸ˜€

  17. Joslyn (missfitbliss) on September 8, 2010 at 11:19 pm

    Cute Lulu outfit! I have that tank in blue!

  18. Maissa on September 8, 2010 at 11:25 pm

    I love the lulu stuff. Aren’t their pants the absolute most amazing things ever? I live in them. I started collecting when I moved to Canada about five years ago and now it is rare that I wear anything but lulu pants unless I actually have somewhere to be. It’s ok because I live in Vancouver and on any given day 90% of the population is dressed in lululemon… And now you know why I love this city.

    Your dinner looks awesome, particularly that appetizer. Yum!

  19. Laury @ thefitnessdish on September 8, 2010 at 11:33 pm

    I am SO jelly of your Lulu outfit. That sports bra looks SO soft and comfy!!! And, Wizard of Oz is probably one of my FAVORITE movies of ALL time…I thought I WAS Dorothy when I was little, recited the movie from start to finish, watched ; However, I have YET to see Wicked. It makes me sad. I read the book…but that’s not enough!

  20. Faith @ lovelyascharged on September 8, 2010 at 11:44 pm

    LOVE the Lulu top! There are no words to describe!!!

  21. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on September 9, 2010 at 12:12 am

    Congrats on the purse and wallet! If EVER there is a time to buy designer handbags it’s when you’re a DINK (double income, no kids). Thank god I bought many handbags in my DINK days. Lol

    The lulu outfit is super cute! I own a few pieces and they never fit me right, the pants that I have of theirs, so I never reach for them. Sigh, I wish they did tho b/c they were a small fortune as you know.

    Those 2 for $15 t’s…LOVIN the indian vibe going on with them…so cool!

    Deals lately? So weird, yes I carry a Chanel bag and have a nice car and love nice things but lately I go to Buffalo Exchange. It’s a recycled clothing store. Been finding tags-still-on Juicy Couture, Marc Jabobs, Free People, all kinds of Seven, Citizens, Betsy Johsnon, you name it..nothing more than $20 and most of it’s like 8 or 10 bucks. CHEAP thrills. And it’s all been presorted and there is nothing scuzzy at the Buff Ex I go to. And I sell stuff there too. It’s like a revolving fashion door, I dig it πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on September 9, 2010 at 9:55 am

      buffalo exchange is one of the things i miss most about tucson! i would recycle clothes ALL the time πŸ™‚
      DINK- totally going to use that. and live it up buy buying as many purses and jeans as possible πŸ˜‰

  22. Stefanie @thenewhealthy on September 9, 2010 at 12:57 am

    ^DINK, I’ve never heard that, but I love it! lol

    Also love the lululemon outfit. If their pants are as comfortable as you (and others) say, then Lululemon just may be involved in my next splurge! In fact, there is a store right next a FroYo shop I love. Double trouble. πŸ˜‰

    As for treasures, I love finding any old burned CD’s–songs always bring back great memories. And it’s interesting how I can still remember the words to songs that I haven’t heard for YEARS!

  23. Maria @ Oh Healthy Day on September 9, 2010 at 1:46 am

    I have those Lulu crops…seriously, they should just change all of their pants to that material. And make sheets out of it.

    • Fitnessista on September 9, 2010 at 9:54 am

      if they made sheets out of the material, i would be so happy πŸ™‚

  24. Lauren @ BIOCHEMISTA on September 9, 2010 at 2:12 am

    Loving the Lulu picks!! What pants are those?? I want some πŸ™‚

  25. Larinna on September 9, 2010 at 2:26 am

    I love lululemon too! I never really could figure out what the big deal was until recently! I even did my own lululemon challenge to see why their stuff was so great! ha ha….it passed of course and now I am in love with their things.


  26. Megan @ Healthy Hoggin' on September 9, 2010 at 2:49 am

    I love finding old food journals of mine! Boy, how my meals have changed over the years! My mom told me she recently found an old workout-log of mine from when I was in junior-high–> I didn’t even realize how long I had paid attention to this kinda stuff! Crazy.

    I’m so excited to hear about the glass straw promo! I love my glass straws, and think I need to send some to my parents! πŸ™‚

  27. Neen @ Broad Bean to Runner Bean on September 9, 2010 at 2:55 am

    the lulu pants look sooooo nice!! i love soft comfy clothes like that!

  28. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on September 9, 2010 at 6:32 am

    I love the lulu outfit! So cute!

  29. Crystal on September 9, 2010 at 7:16 am

    I love your outlet finds! I just took my first Zumba class last night and it was amazing… I cant believe how much fun it is πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on September 9, 2010 at 9:53 am

      i’m so glad you liked it!

  30. Morgan @ Healthy Happy Place on September 9, 2010 at 7:45 am

    The bag is so unique! I love all things coach and have one too many purses in my closet to prove it…oops

  31. RhodeyGirl on September 9, 2010 at 7:49 am

    Love your outlet buys. My cousin is visiting me in Philly next weekend and we plan on spending the entire day at the King of Prussia mall! I CAN’T WAIT!!!!!

    • Fitnessista on September 9, 2010 at 9:52 am

      ahhhh! have so much fun!

  32. Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman on September 9, 2010 at 8:04 am

    I so wish there were a Lululemon outlet near me. Because those pants are not only cute but look so so comfortable.

    • Fitnessista on September 9, 2010 at 9:52 am

      they are so comfy… i can’t even explain it. i want to wear them every day though!

  33. Molly on September 9, 2010 at 8:30 am

    I’m lovin’ the new Coach purse/wallet duo. I’ve always wanted to try zuma but there are no classes near me. Are there any zumba DVDs? Thanks!

    • Fitnessista on September 9, 2010 at 8:46 am

      yes they have dvds! they’e super fun but live classes are better… check out youtube πŸ™‚

  34. Krystina on September 9, 2010 at 8:33 am

    I LOVE the lulu outlet in Orlando. I could have bought the whole store.

  35. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on September 9, 2010 at 8:37 am

    Love the Lulu and Coach buys! πŸ˜€ Yesterday I bought a new pair of Uggs since I destroyed my old ones. I’m so excited to wear them again this fall. <3

  36. Stacey on September 9, 2010 at 9:21 am

    With Ron only following this diet for two weeks and I am assuming he will still be doing his regular strength training…would it even be possible to lose muscle mass in that short amount of time, even if he were eating total crap?

    • Fitnessista on September 9, 2010 at 9:50 am

      yes he’ll be doing his regular workouts and because he has SO much muscle, it will be easier to see if he loses or maintains muscle mass

      • Stacey on September 9, 2010 at 2:52 pm

        Interesting idea. I’m excited to see the results….if his stats stay the same maybe you could convInce him to stick with it for a few more weeks?

  37. jenna on September 9, 2010 at 9:21 am

    i’m so in love with your new yoga pants! do you by chance know what they are called? I tried finding them on their website..but since you got them at the outlet i’m not sure if they are even online. love your new bag too! sweet!

    • Fitnessista on September 9, 2010 at 9:59 am

      i have no idea :/

  38. Sarah S-F on September 9, 2010 at 9:32 am

    What is up with Bella’s leg? Did she get a poodle cut on only one leg?

    • Fitnessista on September 9, 2010 at 9:47 am

      no way! the pups had dental cleanings a couple of weeks ago and had to be put to sleep for it- the bald spots on their arms is from where they put the IV

  39. melissa @ the delicate place on September 9, 2010 at 9:52 am

    i love your lulumom outfit very cute! comfy pants are the best! random treasures: found some old photos from late high school and zomg. what was i thinking dying my hair?!

  40. melissa @ the delicate place on September 9, 2010 at 9:52 am

    haha *lulumon (girlfriend is not awake yet)

  41. Avery on September 9, 2010 at 10:28 am

    I LOVE that workout outfit. The racerback tank is very in right now.

    Recently, I gave away a knock off brown leather coach purse with “cross body” straps. It had been given to me by a friend years ago, and I never used it, so I figured I’d give it to goodwill. Now all of a sudden, I’ve been craving a cross body purse, I see girls with them everywhere and it looks super cute. Oh well, at least someone else gets to walk around lookin cute in my purse : )

  42. Allison on September 9, 2010 at 4:20 pm

    Oh i love wicked:):):) I saw it back in 2007 with my sister who was a theater major:)

    Lulumon=love (+ too expensive for a broke college student)

  43. Cyndi on September 9, 2010 at 11:57 pm

    Did Bella have surgery recently? I have a Havanese that looks so much like your dog … she had surgery a few weeks ago and the iv during surgery required a little shaving.

    She’s so sweet !
