We’re all out

Whenever Bella’s food dish is empty, she’ll clank the bowl and then walk over to us, as if to say, “You hear that, fools? I’m outta food. Feed me.”


So you can imagine the fury that was unleashed when I walked over to the pantry, grabbed her bag of food and a few measly kernels fell into her bowl.

We were out of dog food- something that should probably never happen over here.

She was so upset, she went over and stood in the Pilot’s face,

and didn’t even notice that I was in the kitchen making her a bowl of brown rice, hardboiled egg yolk and chicken. She didn’t mind so much after that 😉 She enjoyed the same feast for breakfast, but a trip to PetSmart is definitely on the agenda for today.

Something else I’m out of?

Room for iPhone photos.

For those who were wondering, the magic number is 2105. I took it as a hint to start using my real camera.



2 servings of oats with Sun Warrior and defrosted cherries and a steamed egg

I have no idea what we’re doing today, but will probably be taking it easy. Yesterday was a lot of fun, but my abs are KILLING me from the suspension training workshop. The first day, we spent a lot of the time learning about set-up and form cues, and yesterday we walked in and the master trainer was like, “I’m just going to kick your asses for 30 minutes. Here we go.”


Side planks and burpees using suspension trainers = no joke.

Would you guys be interested in a TRX workout? Is it something that you have access to at home or at a gym?

What are you up to this weekend?

I hope it starts off with a wonderful Friday <3

See ya later today!

    I would love a TRX workout! It is a great at-home workout. Great to have it as an option when you have kids too.

    A TRX workout would be awesome. I love the TRX. I throw it over the playground and workout while my kids are playing….kills two birds with one stone. Also thanks for the quote that you posted I needed that one today 🙂

      that’s a great way to do it!!

    Hahaha, the picture of Bella and the Pilot is fabulous- so much emotion on both of their faces!

    haha Bell is too funny. I have a little white dog too, hes a mini American Eskimo and he does the same exact thing with his food bowl. He wants there to always be food in his bowl even if he’s not hungry, he just wants to know it’s there. Dogs are silly little creatures.

    would love a TRX workout. I only use ours at the gym for stretching. Would love more strength training moves.

    ive only recently started doing trx in a boot camp I’ve been going to.. that ish is hard! my knees are so bruised up today because we did all these crazy planks and tucks and push ups and mountain climbers on them yesterday and after a while, my arms couldn’t support myself any more.. but it’s SUCH a good workout!

  7. Lindsey on April 14, 2012 at 3:38 am

    I would love one too-my gym recently got it.

    I love using the TRX out in the park with clients. When they’re new to it, they see this colourful thing hanging from tree and they say “oh, that looks like fun!” Then 10 minutes later they realise what a tough workout it is and appreciate it for all new reasons.

    I’d forgotten about your steaming an egg trick. I’ll have to try that sometime.

    running out of cat food is a noisy experience. I almost lose my mind. It’s bad enough when I get up and have to navigate my way to the loo and then the kitchen with four meowing mobile roadblocks. If I’m not quick enough, they sometimes start to bite my ankles (gently, just to make sure I know they are there). Usually if I discover the horror of a not full enough bag, I just break into the canned tuna.

    TRX sounds great but they are soooo expensive here. I thought I’d try to make one actually, it doesn’t look too hard and Grandma has an industrial machine that could handle it.

    I would lurv a TRX program…My new TRX is en route to my house so I would love to have some workout ideas 🙂 Thanks!!!

  11. Lisa on April 14, 2012 at 12:24 pm

    Aww, Bella is so cute and sassy. I love that quote at the end of your post also, very inspirational. I really know very little about TRX, except that it has something to do with suspension. Other than that it’s a mystery to me!

  12. Michelle on April 14, 2012 at 1:12 pm

    I would love a TRX workout! My gym has them hanging from the ceiling and they kind of intimidate me.

  13. Katie on April 14, 2012 at 3:02 pm

    i’d be so interested in a TRX workout! they have them at my gym and i’ve heard great things about them but have NO idea how to use them!

  14. Emily on April 14, 2012 at 3:08 pm

    Starships is sooo the perfect workout jam for today!!! ^_^

  15. Sarah @ The Healthy Diva on April 14, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    I love that photo of bella in the pilot’s face…it’s priceless! No huge plans for this weekend…really should be studying for exams but going to hit the gym first i think. Hope you have a great one 🙂

    • Fitnessista on April 14, 2012 at 11:17 pm

      gym is a good way to clear your mind before studying 🙂

  16. Kelly @ Femme Fitale on April 14, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    I’ve used TRX so many times, but Goodlife gyms in Canada actually lock up the pulleys so that they can only be used during private sessions. Too bad. It’s an amazing workout.

    Fave killer TRX move: Mountain Climbers! (with burpees a close second)
