Wing It

Hi guys 😀

(Bella looks so bold and sassy when she needs a haircut)

Thank you so much for all of your kind words and virtual hugs this morning <3 I have no idea what I’m doing for sure, but all of the situations are win-win, so I just need to figure it out…

Afternoon snack was a strawberry smoothie after my TurboFire sesh:


-1 C water

-1/2 frozen banana

-1 scoop vanilla Sun Warrior

-1 T hemp seeds

-1 T raw cacao powder

-Stevia, sea salt and vanilla

-3/4 C frozen organic strawberries

-Topped with cacao nibs

Today’s TurboFire workout was HIIT 15 and Sculpt 30. The HIIT workout is amazing –I’m sweating like a beast in 15 minutes- and at first I thought the sculpt workout was going to be weak because it’s resistance bands only. I was so wrong- my muscles were trembling by the end of the workout!

I made some marinara for tonight’s dinner before going to work, so that I’d just have to heat up it, boil noodles and serve.


I wish I had a recipe for ya’ll but I just winged it.

The sauce had:

San Marzano tomatoes (if you’re going to make marinara, use San Marzano- it makes a huge difference)

Sweet onion and gahhhhlic

Garlic Gold

Dried rosemary, oregano, parsley and thyme

-Splash of merlot

Red pepper flakes, sea salt, pepper, fresh basil, fresh oregano

-Pinch of sugar

I went back to work to train clients and teach bootcamp (today was LEG-STRAVAGNZA! Bahaha). When I came home, the pilot already had the noodles boiling and the sauce heating, so dinner was served 😀


Simple salad with grape tomatoes and Garlic Gold vinaigrette

salad (2)

Spelt pasta with homemade marinara


(The pilot topped his with a blanket of shredded parm)

We’re off to AT&T to activate his new iPhone, and then coming home to watch this:

princess bride

I’ve never seen it, so *Tinkerbell* (one of my clients) lent it to me. I’m excited to see what all the fuss is about 😉

Have a great night and I’ll see ya in the morning!



Something to read:

The new cap worked!!! They say it’s still too early to celebrate, but I’m breathing a sigh of relief

The words she really wants to hear (all guys should read this)

How Real People on Real Budgets can Buy Organic

Something to talk about: Do you follow recipes, or “wing it”? If it’s a new recipe, I usually have to follow it exactly, but if it came out of my brain or is something I’ve made before, I wing it 🙂

    That is one of my all time favorite movies! AS YOU WISH!!!! God that movie brings back so many childhood memories…

    That movie is so ballin’! I hope you liked it. 😀

    I wing it when I’m cooking, but not when I’m baking because that just leads to disasters!

    Call me crazy, but I have never seen that movie either. Was it good? I might have to go rent it to see what all the hoopla is about!

    Your doggies are so cute! Love the bowls – where’d you get ’em?

    • Fitnessista on July 16, 2010 at 2:07 pm

      world market- one of my favorite stores! 🙂

  6. Nicole on July 16, 2010 at 1:49 pm

    That sauce looks delish!!!

  7. Jaclyn on July 16, 2010 at 2:56 pm

    I almost always *wing it, I like the creativity it allows, much more fun, plus I feel like following a recipe can be too time consuming and too expensive!

    The Princess Bride is, by my estimate, one of the best movies ever made in the entire universe. I’ve seen it more times than I can count and I never get sick of it!

    I love your glass straw. where did you get it?

    Most romantic movie ever. 🙂 This comment is late but that movie is love, love, love.

    Bella = street gang, turf war, runs-with-pitbulls. Go Bella. Run with the Wolves…. 😉
