Take it slow

After last weekend’s frenzy, it feels good to have a weekend without too much going on.


A fun Friday with just Liv and myself, a girls’ night,

short Saturday at work,

getting to see my favorite people on my lunch break,

L and g

and not sure what we’re up to tonight and tomorrow. We have some things around the house we’d like to get done, and Tata’s bday is tomorrow (I’m making him a dump cake since he missed the Pilot’s bday celebration).

Some recent eats:

This morning’s breakfast, which shocked the Pilot 

Bfast 6

His words, “I’m pretty sure that sauce was intended to use sparingly.. in Asian food… not dumped by the tablespoon onto eggs.”

He couldn’t believe how much I like the stuff 😉 Since a few people have asked about the Trader Joe’s brown rice tortillas, which are notorious for cracking, I snapped that pic that morning to show how I use them. I keep the tortillas in the freezer, and microwave one each morning with breakfast for 30 seconds. I break off a large enough piece to scoop some egg and hot sauce/salsa/fuego du jour on top and roll it up. I’ve found that the Food For Life brand is more pliable, but they only sell those at Sprouts and Whole Foods here, which I don’t visit on a regular basis.


Lunch 2

1/2 block tempeh seasoned like so, sautéed with tomatoes and kale, topped with a slice of goat cheese

and dessert:


(I <3 mini Halloween candies)

We dined on the patio since it was so gorgeous outside and then I headed back to work.

Just wanted to say a quick hi, and hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend <3

Any fun fitness events planned? Anyone have a race tomorrow morning, or conquered one today?

See ya soon!



Head’s up: Sun Warrior promo on OpenSky if you need to stock up! I can’t wait to get a new bag for smoothies, protein pancakes and amazeballs.

    My (kettlebell) gym did a “Take a Swing at Breast Cancer” event to raise money for breast cancer research and in honor of one of our members who was just diagnosed. I did 1,200 kettlebell swings in an hour with a 14kg bell. And then sat on my butt knitting the rest of the day. It was fun and inspiring to be out in the park swinging with so many wonderful people.

    I loooove that chili sauce. I dump so much on things that my face starts to get red when I eat it. I don’t have anything special fitness-wise this weekend, but I am going to try out the Lululemon Run Club on Monday night to try to make some running friends in my area. Hope you’re having a great weekend!

    A nice relaxing weekend sounds perfect right now! I have been under so much stress lately!

    • Fitnessista on October 27, 2012 at 11:59 pm

      hope it gets better for you!

    I love the Trader joe’s brown rice tortillas! I don’t notice much of a difference at all between those and the food for life ones! I keep them in the refrigerator and just warm them in the microwave 20 seconds before eating and they’re perfect!

    • Fitnessista on October 27, 2012 at 11:59 pm

      i’ll try 20 sec next time 🙂

  6. Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie on October 27, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    I love egg burritos! Today Josh and I did a pilates workout together, now we’re getting ready to go out to a halloween party dressed as penguins! I’m excited!

    • Fitnessista on October 27, 2012 at 11:59 pm

      have so much fun!

  7. Jess on October 27, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    We’re having a pretty easy going weekend too. Definitely underrated! Just nice to relax with the family.

  8. Jo @ LivingMintGreen on October 27, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    Have you tried La Tortilla Factory teff/millet wraps? They’re a gift from the gluten-free gods! They’re SO soft and don’t crack AT ALL. 😀

    • Fitnessista on October 27, 2012 at 11:59 pm

      yes, i love them! harder to find here, though

  9. Nikki on October 27, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    Just did a 6km run followed by legs session in the gym 🙂 Topped off my workout with chocolate amazeball and a protein shake!!! Yummy!

  10. CourtStar @ StarSystemz on October 27, 2012 at 8:31 pm

    I am obsessed with halloween mini candy! You definitely do not feel as guilty snaking on one little piece although that sugar high is still there 😉

    Lovely pictures, have an amazing weekend

    Love and Shine CourtStar

    What a cute pic of you and Livi! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  12. Jen on October 27, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    “Fuego de jour” — still laughing and I’m totally stealing it.

  13. Christy L. on October 27, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Oh my stars! Where do you get sliced goat cheese? Trader Joes? I didn’t even know it existed, and I need it in my life!

    • Fitnessista on October 27, 2012 at 11:58 pm

      yes!! trader joe’s 🙂

  14. Jessica Kempainen on October 28, 2012 at 12:31 am

    Ran a 1/2 marathon & PR’d at a time of 1:33!!

    • Fitnessista on October 28, 2012 at 12:32 pm

      you are a speed demon! incredible- great job!!

  15. A on October 28, 2012 at 1:10 am

    I ran a race today and PR’d in my mile time by more than two minutes!

    • Fitnessista on October 28, 2012 at 12:31 pm

      whoa amazing!!

  16. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on October 28, 2012 at 8:03 am

    I’m not a fan of overly spicy foods, but I just bought a bottle of sriracha and I’m surprised how much I like it! In small amounts at a time though… I need to ease into it. 😛

  17. laura on October 30, 2012 at 2:52 pm

    I did a spooky Sprint 5k in my town. I’m three months post partum and ran 80% of it 🙂 also won a three month gym membership.. just what I need to jump start my weightloss… can you recommend a good kettle bell work out?
