Yoga for Sanity

Hi guys! How are you? Hope youโ€™re having a wonderful Saturday ๐Ÿ™‚

This post is going to be fast and furious since our dinner party is in 3 hours, but I didnโ€™t want to leave yaโ€™ll hanging.

I did a LOT of prep work last night:


Check out our fridge! Itโ€™s filled to the brim


The dogs were happy to get some chicken after I made the enchiladas.


Bellaโ€™s chicken dance:

A sneak preview of the foodโ€ฆ







Lunch today was a Green-A-Colada with a slice of kamut bread + Earth Balance and Nooch


Followed by shopping at Pier 1 โ€“we decided against getting a new table since weโ€™ll both be moving very soon– and more party prep stuff.

+ A 60-minute Power Yoga #3 podcast.. for sanity ๐Ÿ˜‰

Iโ€™m off to showaaa!

See ya tomorrow with the dinner party re-cap <3

    I hope the party is a hit! I am sure it will be because you are such a fabulous entertainer. I know that everyone will be beyond impressed with your class and delicious meals. Can you move to Pittsburgh and we will throw parties together?

  11. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on July 24, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    Your fridge is so neat..I LOVE a neat fridge and that’s how mine is. I cannot stand clutter anywhere, especially my fridge!

    Knock em dead tonite with your party, as I know you will ๐Ÿ™‚

    And the Pier One stop but no table..yeah, you’ll have to furnish some more details about the move(s)!!

  12. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on July 24, 2010 at 6:27 pm

    Your fridge is SO organized! I’m obsessed with organized fridges, cause my parents can’t keep their own fridge clean even if I try to clean it.

    Good luck with the entertaining.

  19. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on July 24, 2010 at 8:00 pm

    You do such a great job at preparing everything beforehand when you have dinner parties! It must make everything go so smoothly. I swear I’m always running around like a chicken with its head cut off whenever I have friends over. ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Fitnessista on July 24, 2010 at 10:02 pm

      it makes it so much easier! i learned the hard way… used to make everything the day of and didn’t get to enjoy myself. so now, i do as much as possible beforehand

  20. Jackie (Peaces of Earth) on July 24, 2010 at 8:03 pm

    Those are some lucky guests!!! Everything looks delish!! I love how neat your fridge is. Is it bad that one of the main reasons why I want to live alone is because I want my own fridge?? 4 roommates=messy messy stuffed fridge.

    Have an awesome party!!

  21. Tina on July 24, 2010 at 8:08 pm

    I want some of those enchiladas! And your fridge is so organized. I wish mine looked like that.

  22. Allison @ Food For Healing on July 24, 2010 at 8:20 pm

    have a blast, can’t wait to hear about it tomorrow.

  23. Jessica (Fit and Clean) on July 24, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    OMG, you have the cleanest fridge (as in clean food and clean-clean, haha) I’ve ever seen! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve been catching up, because I’ve been gone for awhile. I missed your blog! You always give such great ideas for clean eating. I’m sure the dinner party will be a HUGE success as your parties always are ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Heather (Heather's Dish) on July 24, 2010 at 9:16 pm

  26. Julie @pickley pear on July 24, 2010 at 9:31 pm

  27. Emily @ Emilyeatsclean on July 24, 2010 at 9:50 pm

    Can’t wait to read about your dinner party! You should save your expensive ziploc baggies and use tupperware containers for storage…..they can definitely be a pain to wash, but they are very budget friendly. Have fun tonight!

    • Fitnessista on July 24, 2010 at 10:01 pm

      don’t worry, i always re-use them ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Wendy on July 24, 2010 at 10:03 pm
