The Goods

Hi everyone! Happy almost-Friday! Hope you’re having a glorious morning 🙂

Who celebrated Indian Food Wednesday?

I did, as my morning snack 🙂

When I stopped at Whole Foods for a lovely green juice:


(green apple, lemon, parsley and spinach.. she was a little heavy-handed with the lemon, but it didn’t stop me from chugging it after yoga)

I just “happened” to meander past the hot bar and saw my favorite soup: dal saag!

dal saag 

It has lentils, spinach and is supah spicy. I love it 🙂 Kind of a random mid-morning snack, but it’s what I was feeling and it was SO delicious;)

Some other eats of late:


My favorite Amy’s meal!


A thousand more dark chocolate Dove eggs – they’re just so good but I think I *may* finally be egged out.

Panera dinner:


1/2 Mediterranean salmon salad with no cheese and 1/2 veggie sandwich on wheat with no cheese. I ended up eating the wheat baguette and just munched the veggies out of the sandwich portion.. I like my bread but didn’t see a reason to have 3 servings of the stuff with dinner. The baguette won the bread battle because it was wheatier, seedier and crustier 😉

Per some requests…

The clothes I’ve purchased over the past couple of days:


The pink shirt and 2 pairs of heels are from Forever 21 and the blue, black, white shirt, shorts and black skirt are all from Express. I also grabbed some beauty products, gifts and accessories, but didn’t feel like un-bagging them to snap pics 😉

I’m off to Israel’s spin class (yessssssss) and then going to do some weights. After that, it’s time to park my booty at Beefcake and Noble (aka Barnes and Noble) and get some work done and get back to your lovely emails 😀

Have a wonderful day <3


When you hit up the mall, what’s the first store you make a beeline for?? I always hit up Express, Forever 21, Victoria’s Secret, Williams-Sonoma and Crate and Barrel 🙂

Also, would ya’ll be interested in another Summer Shape Up? If so, I was thinking of launching it in late May.

    Oh yes, PLEASE do a summer shape-up! I missed the last one but would love to try it out. Can’t you just start it tomorrow? 😉

    I would love a new summer shape up. I actually started the summer shape up from last year in preparation for our beach trip, I’m on week 3. I would love to start another when I’m done with this one. I’m really trying to make a commitment to strength training/weights. I like that I can do the exercises at home, no gym necessary. Thanks. 🙂

    Summer Shape Up? – Um, yes, please!!!!! 🙂 Is it unbecoming of me to gravel at your feet?! tehe.

    In other words, yes, a Summer Shape Up would be much appreciated. 😉 You rock!!

    Gina! So one of my older brothers and his wife are visiting me in T-town this weekend–and we’re staying in the foothills, yayy 🙂 But anyways–I think i’m going to make them take me to whole food’s or something so that I can finally try some of that juiced goodness! I’ve had veggie drinks before….but not in yearsss and i know his wife is a mayjuhh fan!

    Oh, and of course when shopping I always beeline it for Nordstrom since (as you known), Tucson doesn’t have one!!

    Love that pink shirt! And the crusty panera bread, mm my fave!

    • Fitnessista on April 9, 2010 at 12:00 pm

      YUM! enjoy!! you’re making me miss my homeland 🙂

  10. Kim M. on April 9, 2010 at 4:13 pm

    100% yes to summer shape up!

  11. Katie on April 9, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    I usually don’t pay much attention to the Amy’s dinners because they’re so expensive but that one looks so good! I may have to pick one up!

    Thats some cute stuff you got! I don’t really like our mall here in Smalltownish, Virginia but when I do go to the mall I go to Forever 21, NY & Co and Macy’s. And sometimes Victoria’s Secret. The increased shopping opportunuities are one of the biggest things that I’m about excited about for when we move to Sacramento, CA this summer!
