Step into my office

Sup bloggies πŸ™‚ How are ya?? Thank you so much for your lovely compliments on our girls night feast πŸ˜€

Step into my office…


I parked my booty at Bizzle and got some work done this morning. While working on the computer, I sipped on Refresh tea and was serenaded by a random dude who was singing as he worked. It made for an interesting morning πŸ˜‰

Before leaving the casa, I had a chocolate cherry bomb with almond milk and maca, per usual

choc cherry

and a piece of leftover raw strawberry tart right outta the freezer πŸ™‚

Lunch was leftover salad beast from Jeni- her balsamic dressing is amazing

salad (2)

And 3 egg whites topped with basil, leftover asparagus and artichoke dip.


Snack attack:


I checked the mail on the way to work, hoping that my boatload of Express clothes arrived, but something EVEN better was waiting for me-

Vegan cookies from Jenna!


I told ya’ll this before, but Jenna makes some ridiculous cookies.

I had one… and then another πŸ˜€ Hooray for cookie Friday!

For now, I think I’m going to take a lil nap because even though I went to bed super late, I jumped outta bed at 7:30. The tired truck just slammed me down.

So, naptime, then Insanity, then dinner with the pilot <3 Next Food Network Star starts SUNDAY – I’m so excited!

Have a wonderful night!



Are any Jacksonville bloggies going to the Master yoga class next Friday at MBody? I’m thinking of doing a road trip πŸ˜€

Today’s workout jam: β€œDinosaur” by Ke$ha (random trivia: I’m deathly afraid of dinosaurs. Jurrasic Park and any dinosaur amusement park rides scare the bejeezus out of me)

    Haha I’ve been rockin’ to Dinosaur, too. I really love ‘Backstabber’ though!

  2. A Teenage Gourmet on June 4, 2010 at 4:47 pm

  4. Carrie on June 4, 2010 at 4:50 pm

    I spent most of my time in college in a particular coffee shop. It was my other classroom. πŸ˜€ I totally get more work done in a cafe than anywhere else.

  5. Little Bookworm on June 4, 2010 at 4:51 pm

    Those cookies look amazing! Hope you have a good Friday and weekend. πŸ™‚

  6. allison @ livingoneday on June 4, 2010 at 4:57 pm

  7. tina on June 4, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    Hey, I live in Jacksonville and what Master Yoga class are you talking about. I didn’t know one was going on

    • Fitnessista on June 4, 2010 at 5:54 pm

      it’s at m body yoga- mark white is teaching it, next friday

  8. Brynne on June 4, 2010 at 6:03 pm

    Hahaha that song makes me DIE of laughter! And ok, I’m scared of dinosaurs too! My friends made fun of me during bio in high school when we had to watch Jurassic Park and the T-Rex freaked me out. Those little poisonous ones have def given me nightmares in the not-so-distant past!

    • Fitnessista on June 4, 2010 at 6:10 pm

      hahah when the pilot wants to mess with me, he acts like a velociraptor

  9. Erin on June 4, 2010 at 6:04 pm

    I love coffee shop working. Sadly, that’s coming to an end when my office job starts on Monday.

  10. jenna on June 4, 2010 at 6:05 pm

    I was just laying on the bed, munching away on one of those same cookies while reading your blog! So glad you liked them! πŸ™‚

  11. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on June 4, 2010 at 6:13 pm

    I just woke up from a nap. I would love to have those cookies at my doorstep πŸ™‚

  12. Allie (Live Laugh Eat) on June 4, 2010 at 6:13 pm

    I just pictured you taking a photo of your work station at Bizzle-ista. A bloggahs gotta do what a bloggahs gotta do.

    <3 TNFNWS!!!

    I cried during Jurassic Park. We can start a club.

    • Fitnessista on June 4, 2010 at 6:24 pm

      hahaha! a mom and her daughter gave me a funny look when i got up from the chair to take a picture
      yes, let’s start a dinosaur phobia club πŸ™‚

  13. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on June 4, 2010 at 6:20 pm

    I love parking my booty at Starbucks for a few hours to get some work done! If only they had free refills!

    • Fitnessista on June 4, 2010 at 6:26 pm

      then i’m pretty sure i would live there πŸ™‚

  14. Heather (Heather's Dish) on June 4, 2010 at 6:24 pm

    that’s hilarious…good thing dinos aren’t around anymore πŸ™‚

  15. mm on June 4, 2010 at 6:24 pm

    I have the exact same computer protector/cover thing, and I have a lunch bag made out of the same material/pattern. πŸ™‚ Love it!

  16. Lindsay @ Summit Sandwiches on June 4, 2010 at 6:26 pm

    I love Bizzle for getting work done! The vibe there is just perfect for focusing and checking stuff off the to-do list. It also doesn’t hurt that the coffee flows freely at S-Bizzle. Coffee always provides inspirations for getting stuff done! πŸ™‚

  17. Julie @ Pickley Pear on June 4, 2010 at 6:36 pm

    I think Jenna should send everyone cookies – they look SOOOO good! Happy Friday!

  18. RhodeyGirl on June 4, 2010 at 6:47 pm

    I wish I could work from Starbucks. That would be so fun! Instead I talk to myself from my desk hahahaha

  19. Robyn @ Frugal 'n' Fit! on June 4, 2010 at 6:47 pm

    I wish Starbucks was my office! Really, I just wish there was a Starbucks IN my office πŸ˜‰

  20. Kris | on June 4, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    What were you doing in my office? Lol, a vancouver startbucks had a brunette getting her work done the same time you were I bet πŸ˜‰ I get a lot more done when I am out of the house!

    Love that song….dinosaurs are scary creatures.


    • Fitnessista on June 4, 2010 at 8:14 pm

      me too- i can’t be as productive at home!

  21. Allison @ Food For Healing on June 4, 2010 at 7:06 pm

    yum cookies, i love cookies

  22. The Pilot on June 4, 2010 at 7:19 pm

    Hon, you ever consider the fact that dinosaurs might still exist in a deep jungle in Africa…near a river with ships carrying cargo…bound for Valdosta πŸ˜‰

    • Fitnessista on June 4, 2010 at 8:14 pm

      *shrieks and hides under a blanket*

  23. Katherine on June 4, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    precious that she sent you the cookies! love it

  24. Errign on June 4, 2010 at 7:59 pm

    um, would it be super weird if I asked you for fashion advice? I bought a dress (pictures on my latest post) and I don’t know if I should have it hemmed a few inches. I feel like such a goober, but you are obviously far more fashion savvy that I could ever hope to be haha.

    • Fitnessista on June 4, 2010 at 8:13 pm

      i doubt that πŸ™‚
      i saw the dress and LOVE it. i think hemming it would be a great idea πŸ™‚

      • Errign on June 4, 2010 at 8:31 pm

        thanks Gina! πŸ™‚

  25. andrea on June 4, 2010 at 8:06 pm

    what is millet bread and is it comparable to regular bread

    • Fitnessista on June 4, 2010 at 8:12 pm

      it’s a whole grain bread- very sweet and chewy

  26. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on June 4, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    I like getting work done at Starbucks. I feel very productive there for whatever reason. πŸ™‚

  27. Sarah on June 4, 2010 at 10:42 pm

    My friend Tom is actually on Next Food Network Star. So cool, right? I can’t wait to watch, and I so hope he wins; )

    • Fitnessista on June 5, 2010 at 12:15 am

      that’s AWESOME πŸ™‚

  28. Melissa S. on June 4, 2010 at 11:44 pm

    d i n o s a…u r a dinosaur…o l d m a n ure just an old man, hittin on me what? u need a CAT scan!

    Love that song for the moment in my workout when I really wanna quit because it gets me laughing and I am distracted from wanting to get off the revolving wheel of death (aka treadmill)

  33. Laury @ thefitnessriot on June 5, 2010 at 9:50 am

    Looooove Next Food network Star!

    This season it’s even more exciting b/c a girl I went to school with, hubby is contestant! Tom Pizzica; never met but used to work with her & she was a good friend of my sis, so it’s kinds cool having someone to root for. Last season was awesome, hopefully this season will be even better!

    PS–used to live at Starbucks & Barnes & Noble (that has a starbucks cafe in it). I should do it again, used to get SO much more work done there with no distractions.

  34. Melissa @ For the Love of Health on June 5, 2010 at 10:05 am

    Love the pink Vaio! I have the same one and I get comments on it all of the time! haha

  35. Marissa on June 5, 2010 at 10:31 am

    I’m excited for the Next Food Network Star too! I watched it religiously last year; I hope I love it as much this year!

  36. Cassie @ A Very Busy Mind on June 5, 2010 at 10:58 am
