Smoothie Deception

Hi guys! How’s your day been??

Things are bueno over here, especially since I started my day with a cookie 😉


A superfood bfast cookie with:

-1/2 C oats

-1/2 scoop Sun Warrior


-Goji berries and cacao nibs

-1 T sprouted raw almond butter

-almond milk

Rumor has it that some of the pilots in our squadron have been enjoying bfast cookies lately, too! Love it. My Pilot isn’t a huge fan of the breakfast cookies – he has a texture thing- but said he will eat a bfast cookie under one circumstance (it’s an inspiration board thing and I don’t want to jinx it by typing it out) and I’m anxiously awaiting that day 🙂

Snack was some raw cacao cereal with fresh almond milk:


and then I meandered up to the yoga room for a 45-minute Detox Challenge flow a la


The yoga practice was amazing, but the best part was coming out of savansana to a thousand Bella kisses 🙂


I wore a new shirt today,


(hoping to have these in my OpenSky store soon! Lurve)

and answered so many questions about raw food at the car wash and the grocery store. It was fun- I love talking to perfect strangers about food/nutrition/whatever 🙂

This afternoon, I met my friend Michele for a smoothie at Main Squeeze.


A BROWN smoothie!

Looks can be deceiving because it was delicious. Peach, mango, fresh apple juice, spinach, strawberry and Sun Warrior + spirulina from my purse 😉

I’m off to practice my Zumba dances, train some clients and teach bootcamp! If any of ya’ll tried this morning’s bootcamp workout, please let me know how it went!



Something to talk about: Are you superstitious?? I definitely am. Sometimes the Pilot will say something and I’ll get riled up because I think he jinxed us and he just laughs at me 😉 Also, any reader’s request ideas for tomorrow? Please leave them in the comments section <3

    and a Reader Request post i’ve always wanted to see is what do you bring to the gym every time? (ipod, water bottle, towel.. etc) and also any beauty products to use after the gym so i don’t smell all sweaty in class! (things like dry shampoo.. deodorant) thanks for taking time to answer questions like these!!

    About the ads: you provide a free blog which is entertaining and informative. Your readership doesn’t pay you so I am glad somebody does. You work hard on this blog and that is apparent, it is a job that I’m sure with daily posts and reading comments adds up to full time! Thanks for all you do.

    I love ypur blog so much, and always enjoy reading the readers request, well, I have an idea for the upcoming one, maybe you can help me and other girls too, I have lost 20 pounds, I am active now : running, strenght training, zumba some yoga, even if I feel that my body is in good shape, my skin is definetely now, I eat clean mostly vegan, sometimes vegetarian, lots of fruits and veggies and fresh juices, but still, after that amount of weight lost I have my legs in cellulite, you have already posted a reader request for “butt” training which by the way is great, but maybe you have some tips how to fix this another problem: celullite?! that will help, thank you!

    • Fitnessista on August 20, 2010 at 10:19 am

      hey girl,
      congrats on changing your health around- that’s amazing!
      cellulite is a tricky beast. i get asked to write about it pretty often, but since it’s extremely genetic, it’s hard to tell whether cellulite is attributed to weight loss or genes.
      some tips:
      – dry brushing
      – strength training
      – foam rolling
      – high intensity interval training ( a couple times week)
      hope this helps a little!

    Many thanks for answering my question!! 🙂

  7. Katalina @ GreenLivingNY on August 20, 2010 at 10:26 am

    What do you mean by dry brushing?!

  8. Katalina @ GreenLivingNY on August 20, 2010 at 12:18 pm

    Thank you! you are the best! 🙂

    i don’t think you’ve ever done this, but i’d love to see a full-length zumba workout from you. i know you’ve shown some short clips of you teaching, but i’ve been wanting to try it, and think you’d be the perfect first instructor 😉

    • Fitnessista on August 20, 2010 at 2:12 pm

      thank you! i’m actually going to do something similar- i’m hosting a zumbathon in september, so i’ll be posting about 5 dances from class 🙂
