Superbowl Sunday + see ya, Detox

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? By the time this post goes up, I plan to have consumed a mimosa. Detox is over! I’ll be doing a recap post with everything we did -the Pilot is writing a post with his thoughts, too- but I actually enjoyed it. I also realized which things I like to have in my life daily (CHOCOLATE) and those things that were just habits, like the nightly glass of wine. I’ll probably have it a couple of times a week now.

Brunch  1 of 1

Before I head into the rest of this post, POSH Podcast!!! They gave me a shout out on last week’s episode, and I can’t even begin to tell you how stoked I was. Nothing like the fresh feel of street cred haha. I thought there was no way they would know I’m obsessed with them, but I guess they check their Google Analytics. 🙂 I checked mine yesterday and three people found my blog by searching, “Girl does a little Irish jig.” What?

It’s Superbowl day! Are you watching?? I’ll be cheering for Katy Perry, the commercials, and the appetizers. If you’re looking for last-minute healthy ideas, there are some delicious ones here. I think I’m going to make a slow cooker buffalo chicken dip with homemade tortilla chips. I’m also excited to take some time and meal prep later today.

Plan, prep and dinner

Here’s what I’m thinking:

Balls  1 of 1



Paleo bread

Chop veggies for salad

Make smoothie packs (for smoothie bowls)

Smoothie bowl  1 of 1 5


Coconut lime chicken with brown rice and salad

Raw lasagna with a chopped veggie salad (I just finished Matthew Kenney’s book and am seriously craving some of his famous heirloom tomato lasagna)

Raw lasagna

 -Salmon tacos with homemade beans and rice

-Chicken and sweet potato burgers (from the book!) with roasted broccoli 

Meals and fitness

This week’s fitness plan includes some yogaaaaaa. I’m pretty stoked about it.  

Here’s what the tentative plan looks like:

Sunday: OFF

Monday: Teach Spin

Tuesday: Orangetheory (I might take flamenco and strength train a little instead; we’ll see how I’m feelin’)

Wednesday: Teach spin and teach Zumba

Thursday: OFF

Friday: Yoga

Saturday: Yoga

Yoga  1 of 1


A little different than normal, but it’s going to be nice to shake things up a bit! 

What are you up to today? Are you planning and prepping for the week? 

I’ll have all of the details for Week 2 of your Winter Shape Up plan bright and early tomorrow. Your meal plan is live here!

Have a happy Sunday. 



PS. Happy birthday to my brother, Kyle. <3

    I can’t wait to read your detox reviews! I made a huge pot of vegetarian chilli to eat for a few weeks and am hoping to do some more prepping later this afternoon. Enjoy the end of your weekend!

    The raw lasagna , coconut lime chicken look amazing!! Super Bowl in Illinois. Is super snow storm. Most our area without power. No t v!! Thankfully we have power but no t v. I’ll take the power! Thank god for my tread mill ! Going to try to walk the dog in 8-9 inches of snow !! And it is still coming !

    • Fitnessista on February 1, 2015 at 4:05 pm

      ahhhh! hope it calms down for you!

  3. Taija on February 1, 2015 at 9:53 am

    Awesome recipies, especially the raw lasagna and these ballz, have to have to try!!

    My food prep for the week was done Saturday, including lentil soup with chicken and actually since long some healthy bolognese with veggies and brown pasta. Let’s see how that works out.

    Lately I have been very much up to pilates (in addition to my great love to heavy weights), but after two trial classes of ballet I think I really have to include that somehow to my weekly schedule – it gave me such a great body feeling that I am curious what happens if/when I continue doing it!

    • Fitnessista on February 1, 2015 at 4:05 pm

      that is wonderful! it’s exciting to find something new you love and can add to your schedule 🙂

  4. Jill @ Champagne for Everyday on February 1, 2015 at 9:53 am

    Your food line up for the week sounds amazing!! I’m just prepping a few veggies and hardboiled eggs, because I’m travelling Tues-Fri. But that means I’m packing oatmeal, protein powder, beef jerky and Quest bars as usual, to eat like a champ on the road!

    Happy Superbowl Sunday! =P

  6. Sam @ grapefruit & granola on February 1, 2015 at 10:11 am

    Happy birthday to your brother!

    I just loaded up on lots of fruits and vegetables for the week. I’m also making a big pot of chili to take to work for the next few days.

    • Fitnessista on February 1, 2015 at 4:04 pm

      that sounds delicious!

  7. Ash Bear on February 1, 2015 at 10:23 am

    I am so, so thankful you introduced me to the awesome DJ podcast!! 🙂 Great workouts – enjoy all the yoga. I’ve realized the same in regards to the wine each night!

    • Fitnessista on February 1, 2015 at 4:03 pm

  8. Fiona @ Get Fit Fiona on February 1, 2015 at 10:31 am

    I’ll be having a few appetizers today too even though I don’t plan on watching the game.

  9. Kerry on February 1, 2015 at 11:05 am

    I forgot to prep this weekend eek but I have done my meal plan.. just need to brave the grocery store tomorrow!

  10. Britt@MyOwnBalance on February 1, 2015 at 11:14 am

    I did a detox a few years ago and I was really dependent on sugar. I’m planning on taking a lot of classes this week and getting outside for a walk with the baby once a day!

  11. Ashley @ A Lady Goes West on February 1, 2015 at 12:02 pm

    Congrats on your detox! Hope those mimosas are excellent. I moved over the weekend so am just coming out from a mound of boxes and chores, but I have a Super Bowl party to attend with friends. So celebrations are in order. Happy Sunday! 🙂

    • Fitnessista on February 1, 2015 at 4:02 pm

      the mimosa was wonderful!! hope you have a very happy sunday!

  12. Nicole @ Runs & WODs on February 1, 2015 at 12:02 pm

    I’m about to start prepping for the week so I can get it done before the Superbowl! Lot’s of eggs, chicken, sweet potatoes and veggies this week!

    • Fitnessista on February 1, 2015 at 4:02 pm

      sounds wonderful!

  13. AJ @ NutriFitMama on February 1, 2015 at 2:20 pm

    Oooh the raw lasagna looks really good! Also, love the Amazeballs! I need to go do my meal prepping for the week..apparently while the rest of the world watches the Super Bowl. 😉

    • Fitnessista on February 1, 2015 at 4:01 pm

      i’m going to go grocery shopping during it because trader joe’s will be EMPTY

  14. Erin @ Her Heartland Soul on February 1, 2015 at 3:02 pm

    I’m the exact opposite! Wine = <3 <3 <3 Whereas chocolate I'm kind of ehh about.

  15. Yaara Leve on February 1, 2015 at 3:10 pm

    Your fitness week always look so much fun! You alway switch things up and keep it interesting. Are you by any chance doing a Yoga workshop Friday and Sat? I’ve been itching to do one for a while now. I looked at a bunch of my local studios here in Chitown but it’s kind of dry this time of year. And I”m not really into Gong bath–or whatever that is–lol. My dream is to do a workshop in LA with Vinnie Marino. I’ve read such amazing things about him and how yoga helped heal him and his issues with addiction. I’ve read his flows are really fun and he uses rocking playlists. Hope you have a great week! XOXO

    • Fitnessista on February 1, 2015 at 4:00 pm

      i am! i’m very excited about it 🙂
      i’ve taken a class from vinnie before and really loved his vibe and style.
      have a great night!

  16. Livi @ Eat, Pray, Work It Out on February 1, 2015 at 6:14 pm

    Cant wait to hear about your detox! It seemed like an awesome reset without being too restrictive!

  17. Amanda @ Diary of a Semi-Health Nut on February 1, 2015 at 7:44 pm

    Oh my gosh that yoga studio looks amazing! Like a divine nature retreat! (<-not to be dramatic or anything HA)

  18. Laura B @ FitMamaLove on February 1, 2015 at 8:45 pm

    Aw, sweet throwback pic! We watched the Super Bowl (well, I didn’t pay attention until the last 2 min) with friends who are from Seattle, so it definitely made things more entertaining!

  19. Gina on February 2, 2015 at 5:13 am

    I found the POSH podcast thanks to you and I heard the shout out they gave you!! Very cool! I’m starting my week shoveling again due to another snowstorm and celebrating the Patriots winning the Super Bowl baby! Gina (from Mass)

  20. Danielle on February 2, 2015 at 6:38 am

    My workout plan has to start with shoveling this morning hit with a storm kids are home so it will be a busy active day

  21. Tracy on February 2, 2015 at 11:16 am

    Looking forward to hearing the detox review!

    Yay for yoga!!!! Namaste!

  22. Virginia on February 2, 2015 at 2:12 pm

    That picture of you and your baby brother is so adorable!

  23. madre on February 4, 2015 at 9:13 am

    As always, the food recipies and pictures make me hungry, I want to download POSH poscast and dance! And the finish? With a tear of love because that is how I felt when I saw you 26 years ago kissing and loving your baby brother.
    Ily, Madre
