To Be Redundant…

Hi friends <3

Sorry to be redundant, but…

I had a banana with AB before my AM weights sesh (again)


did the workout thang

and then had pumpkin protein oats (again).


(I garnished them with goji berries instead of cacao nibs just to make them a *little* different)

I miss my Pilot so much my heart hurts. This one is never ending but more apparent when I slow down and stop for a second.


We call these days *miss days*, and even though I’m so STOKED to be off work, the fact that I’m not as much of a busy bee makes it more obvious that he’s not here.

How’s today going to be different than yesterday??

-I’m cooking a *REAL* dinner, that I’ll eat on a plate instead of out of the Bento box 😉


Butternut squash and goat cheese lasagna with fall salad and roasted veggies

DANCE TRANCE tonight!!! I’ve been excited to go again since last week 🙂

-New project time! I’m writing a new book proposal. After the last one didn’t get any bites, I’m ready to try again and have a new idea that I hope will be a thousand times better. All of the Brian Tracy CDs really lit a fire under my booty to get crack-a-lackin

Thanks, Brian Tracy 😉

-I’m also excited to get some blog changes done this week (recipe and workout updates, new pages added) and am in the market for a bloggie facelift. Nothing too crazy (the format will stay the same- I’d just like it to be cleaner-looking, easier to find things and have a working RSS feed), so if any of ya’ll have an awesome web wizard, please send their info my way!

Off to work on that project, get groceries, do the cooking thang and head to DT.

See ya later today!



Mayjah congrats to Sara for winning the Raw Threads shirts and vegan cookies 🙂

    Aww, it has to be so hard for you!! I’m so sorry you are missing your man. Hang in there girl, you guys will be reunited soon enough and in the meantime, you have all of your wonderful bloggie friends to keep your spirits up! 🙂

    lots of hugs!!!!! I cant even imagine how hard it must be (my hubby is gone a lot but its for medical school rotations so at least hes still in the country). Just know we are all so proud of him! (and you)!

    i’m right there with you on those miss days! just take comfort in the fact that you’re lucky enough to be in a healthy and strong relationship that can sustain distance and all the trials that are put upon you. solidarity!

      that’s true

    Your “Miss Days” talk reminds me that someday I want somebody to miss! I’m enjoying being independent for now, but when I read things like this, I get that lil’ twinge of “cuddle me”

    Pumped to hear more about your new book proposal 🙂

    I can sympathize with you at least a little bit. My best friend in the WHOLE world (I’m in highschool, so best friends are key!) has been away in South America for the past two years. I miss her like crazy! No one knows me like she does. But that just makes the reunion so much better, even if there are waterworks :]

    My husband is traveling for work too 🙁 He is in Korea. I know what it feels like when you say your heart hurts from missing your husband so much. Our boys will be home soon!

    • Fitnessista on October 5, 2010 at 11:12 pm

      yes they will! wish you were closer so we could hang out!

  8. katie on October 5, 2010 at 10:40 pm

    you are so incredibly gorgeous on the inside and out girl! I ALWAYS read your blog, but I dont think I have ever commented! LOVE your creations and you are such a ray of light!

    • Fitnessista on October 5, 2010 at 11:11 pm

      thank you, katie! <3

    Hi Gina,

    So sorry you are missing your pilot. I bet it is so tough some (or all!) days! Sending you tons of love from Australia.

    I LOVE Brian Tracy and he always lights a fire under my booty too. Very motivational.

    Your lasagne looks fantastic! I made this recipe of mine for comfort food for a friend last night…maybe you’d like to try it while you are missing your man.

    Hope you enjoyed Dance Trance!
