The Grillmaster

Hey hey hey 😀 Happy Saturday to ya! Hope your day is going fabulously <3

Last night, the pilot and I had an awesome grilled meal. It’s been wayyyy too long since we’ve grilled out!

I made some veggie packs with yellow squash, asparagus, yellow onion, sea salt and garlic gold

veg pacs

And the roasted garlic oregano vinaigrette for the pilot’s chicken


We, uhhh, happened to charbroil the sweet potato fries :/

fries (2)


We were watching The Blind Side (that movie will suck you in) and totally forgot about the fries on the grill. Oops 😉

I also planned on having salmon but forgot to defrost it (oops again) so we’re going to have it for dinner tonight instead.

My dinner:


Veggie pack + salad with goat cheese + a thousand unpictured Triscuits as I cooked 😉

The pilot’s:


+ vino


After dinner, we hit up Targizzle for copious amounts of sunscreen and a floppy hat for our Bahamas trip 🙂

This morning, we woke up pretty early and did the Insanity Plyo workout together. It was AWESOME. The pilot’s a great workout buddy (even though he’s a goofer) 😀 He said it was the hardest workout he’s done since Army airborne. I’ll post the Week 4 Insanity review later today.



-1.5 servings brown rice cereal

-2 T brown rice protein (I miss my Sun Warrior)

-1 C almond milk

-1/2 banana


-1 T flax


We just got back from our neighbor’s funeral. LOVE this lady and it was such a beautiful service <3


(I’m a master at tying ties haha)

and we’re possibly going to a one-year-old’s birthday later today. Circle of life, eh?

But first, this little monkey is getting a bath.


See ya later on with the Week 4 Insanity re-cap 🙂



Happy Birthday to my cousin Steph! <3

    Harder than airborne! Geez- I have to try that:) The Blind Side is an amazing movie, it’s easy to see how someone could get sucked in!

    i’ve burned the fries more times than i can remember…OOPS! your dinner still looked fabulous though 🙂

    Oh goodness, such (!!!) a cute picture of Bella! Bella is actually my dog’s name too 🙂 Last week I was making hamburgers under the broiler in the oven because I couldn’t figure out how to work the grill (don’t laugh) and I left the kitchen for a few minutes and when I returned, all I could see were FLAMES in the oven!! I tried to open the door but that made it worse (oxygen, duh me) so I closed the door and just watched through the door until all the flames burned out. Needless to say the burgers were charcoal!

    I’m glad that you two are having a great weekend. I’m sorry to hear about your neighbor. Taking stickers out of dog’s hair is no fun. But, after they are all cleaned up they look so cute. Have a fun day!

  7. Diana on May 8, 2010 at 2:04 pm

    Aw, Bella’s so cute!
    Have a good saturday!

  8. Allison @ Food For Healing on May 8, 2010 at 2:09 pm

    The circle of life is right!

    doesn’t that just suck when you burn something that bad, can’t even salvage any of it

  9. Run Sarah on May 8, 2010 at 2:23 pm

    Loved the Blind Side, so good! Veggie grill packs are one of my fav summer foods, yum.

  10. Danielle (Coffee Run) on May 8, 2010 at 2:26 pm

    Is it weird that I love the taste of burnt food? Mmmmm carcinogens 🙂

    • Fitnessista on May 8, 2010 at 2:42 pm

      LOL. i love burnt food, too! but the fries were a little over the top burned 😉

  11. Karyn on May 8, 2010 at 2:36 pm

    i love grilling! i don’t necessarily like burnt fries but slightly burnt bagels / english muffins? heaven to me. guess i’m just weird hah

    • Fitnessista on May 8, 2010 at 2:42 pm

      i’m right there with you. burnt bread tastes GLORIOUS

  12. Shelly on May 8, 2010 at 2:42 pm

    Bella’s puppy tongue is cracking me up! I love big doggie grins. 🙂

  13. Cassie @ A Very Busy Mind on May 8, 2010 at 3:19 pm

    Aw The Blind Side. A little cheesy, but good.

    Bella! Hilarious. My dog (a YorkiePoo) likes to pretend he’s an outside dog this time of year and gets into EVERYTHING. He comes in looking like that all the time, too.

  14. Melissa @ For the Love of Health on May 8, 2010 at 3:38 pm

    nothing beats a tin foil package of grilled veggies!
    too bad the sweet potato fries burned- boo!

  15. Suzanne on May 8, 2010 at 3:43 pm

    I’m happy to see the Pilot safely returned, and I’m very sorry to hear about your neighbor.

    lookin forward to the insanity recap….would you go as far as to say that it’s “insane in the membrane”…….

    • Fitnessista on May 8, 2010 at 3:47 pm

      insane in the brain! 😀

  16. Jessica on May 8, 2010 at 4:08 pm

    I’m so happy that the pilot’s back home! I can just tell that you two are having the best time together–how amazing is The Blind Side?! Loved that movie.

    Sorry about the burnt sweet p fries….I haaaaate when that happens! It’s okay though, triscuts are a yummy supplement 🙂

  17. Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg on May 8, 2010 at 4:11 pm

    LOL…that picture makes my allergies go crazy just looking at it! 🙂

  18. Cathy on May 8, 2010 at 4:35 pm

    laughing at all the burnt food comments! can i add in tofu? i love to pan-sear it and get it slightly burnt on the outside, crispy! glad to hear others like the “well-done” taste of foods, too!

  19. Julie @ Pickley Pear on May 8, 2010 at 5:08 pm

    Grilled veggies are my fav! I can’t wait to start grilling. Have you seen the new Weber commerical? You Tube it. Hilarious!

  20. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on May 8, 2010 at 7:23 pm

    Haha sorry about the fries! I hate it when that happens.

    I love me some burnt marshmellows though!

  21. Andrea J on May 10, 2010 at 11:08 am
