“You Crossed the Line”

Hiiii 😀 Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend so far <3 HOLY ALMOND BUTTER! Keep those entries comin’– winner will be announced tomorrow AM.

This morning, the pilot had his first chocolate cherry bomb.


I was kind of nervous that he wouldn’t like it, and the pressure was on because he said I would be facing extreme smoothie judgment.


The verdict?

He LOVED it.

Next, I asked him to try my smoothie (berries, banana, almond milk, Sun Warrior, raw cacao powder and spirulina) and when he made a face, I told him there was algae (spirulina) in it.

His response: “You crossed the line.”


We got on the road to JACKSONVILLE this morning!

Ahhhhh! I <3 civilization 😀

We stopped at Turtle Island for lunch- it’s right by the resort and they have an awesome vegetarian/vegan selection.

Check out the foodgasmic dessert case:


I got the wrap of my dreams:


Roasted veg, kalamata olives and goat cheese on a whole wheat wrap

The pilot rolled with chicken and avocado:


We shared some sweet potato fries:


and made some birdie friends 😉


(Ps. Birds look so much like DINOSAURS. For that, I don’t ever really trust them)

Steaz for me, burr for him:


Under the cap:


You can bet your booty I am 😉

We checked into our room at that one place we love 😉 (You can read about our last visits *here* and *here*)

Off to the beach, yoga, shopping and Melting Pot. It’s gonna be a good night 😉

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!

  3. Megan @ Healthy Hoggin' on July 17, 2010 at 2:48 pm

    How could he NOT like the Cherry Chocolate Bomb? It’s amazing!!

    I’ve been making my husband green smoothies lately, but he won’t go near Spirulina either! And I have to add extra fruit, so he doesn’t even taste a “hint” of green! Ha ha.

  4. amy on July 17, 2010 at 2:56 pm

    I live in Jacksonville. We should have done a blog meet up for lunch. Is turtle Island restraunt out at the beach? I haven’t heard of it before.

    • Fitnessista on July 17, 2010 at 5:18 pm

      i would have planned a meet-up, but we’re only here for one night! let me know if you want to meet for yoga in the morning!

  5. kelli on July 17, 2010 at 2:57 pm

    hope you have a fun time in jacksonville!! I had a question about strength training, I have been lifting weights for the past 3 months and started with 4# weights now am up to 8# weights, and last night after lifting that morning I was up all night with DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) and I was wondering what I can do to prevent that, and if it does happen again how to help lessen the pain? I have been stretching..but what stretches do you thin are best? thank you so much!

  6. Andrea on July 17, 2010 at 3:22 pm

    Too funny about birds looking like dinosaurs. Enjoy your Saturday with the Pilot.

  7. Dorry on July 17, 2010 at 3:23 pm

    What a fun Saturday! Love his reaction to the spirulina. I’ve had some similar encounters with my fiance. 🙂

  8. Julie @ Pickley Pear on July 17, 2010 at 3:24 pm

    How can anyone NOT love Cherry Bombs! The resort looks fab. Enjoy some quality time with the hubby!

  9. Liz @ Tip Top Shape on July 17, 2010 at 3:27 pm

    Yeah, that spirulina may have been pushing it, haha.

    Enjoy your day! It looks like you’ll be having fun 😀

  10. brittany on July 17, 2010 at 3:40 pm

    i hope you have so much fun! that view is AHHHMAZING! and i would LOVE to be at the beach right this second!

    i made a chocolate cherry bomb for my boyfriend and he HATED it.. haha he’s not too good about trying new things though 😉

  11. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on July 17, 2010 at 3:46 pm

    Have fun with the pilot!!!!

    The pilot’s reaction is so funny. People say I cross the line when I put spinach in my smoothies.

  12. Sarra H on July 17, 2010 at 4:06 pm

    Hope you have a fabulous weekend!! The place you’re at looks amazing 🙂

    p.s. i love how restaurants wrap their wraps, I never know how to do it that way! mine always ends up falling apart

  13. Jessica @ Rawtumn on July 17, 2010 at 4:08 pm

    Hahah nice! Glad the pilot loved the chocolate cherry bomb, who wouldn’t!? I even sneak spinach in mine. =P Have a great night in Jacksonville!

  14. Kilee on July 17, 2010 at 4:13 pm

    Have tons of fun on your little vacay! I haven’t met anyone who didn’t like the Cherry Bomb! Take care!

  15. Moondancer on July 17, 2010 at 4:16 pm

    I think I would have kept the Spirulina quiet, most likely I would have sprung it on him after he ate it. I have a few buddies that could care less what’s in the junk food they eat, but if it’s something healthy they’ll be asking. Thankfully they stopped doing that with me. Although I feed them healthy meals, it tastes good too.

    Aren’t the birds cute, they sort of look like sparrows. I know, they’re plain and very common (depending on the area you live) but I think they’re adorable. 🙂

  16. Lauren on July 17, 2010 at 5:00 pm

    Whoa those sweet potato fries look increds! Almost as incredible as the pilot’s expression. priceless. You guys have fun at that beautiful beach 🙂

  17. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on July 17, 2010 at 5:01 pm

    LOVE the Melting Pot! Have some yummy fondue! 🙂

  18. Heather (Heather's Dish) on July 17, 2010 at 5:01 pm

    what a fun trip! i so wish that we had a cool place like that to go for quick trips 🙂 can’t wait for you to go to melting pot 🙂

  19. Emily @ Emilyeatsclean on July 17, 2010 at 5:13 pm

    Ohhh the Melting Pot is heavenly!! Enjoy your hubby time! 🙂

  20. Exercise and Eat on July 17, 2010 at 5:18 pm

    Your wrap looks do die for! Enjoy civilization:)

  21. Danielle (Runs on Green) on July 17, 2010 at 5:29 pm

    hahah that always happens to me- I get my family to try something like tofu and then I get all excited and try to follow up with vegan cheese and then I know I’m pushing it…

    Enjoy your night!

  22. Erin on July 17, 2010 at 5:41 pm

    That wrap looks a-mazing! Things just taste better on a wrap! 😉

  23. Krystina on July 17, 2010 at 5:41 pm

    Haha, the pilot is hilarious. Have fun! 🙂

  24. Izzy on July 17, 2010 at 6:12 pm

    I don`t usually comment, though I`m a regular reader (except when youre giving away AB coupons ;D), but I thought I was the only one who thinks birds look like dinosaurs!!! Fugetabout lizards – its the birds!!

    Those sweet tater fries look perfect – crispy on the outside, soft and sweet on the inside. Diess


  25. Wow it’s actually baked sweet potato’s and not fried fry’s. Looks like a really good lunch.

  26. Jill@mysocalledhealthlife on July 17, 2010 at 6:18 pm

    Dear lord those sweet potato fries need to come to my house for a slumber party!! Haha.

  27. Jess on July 17, 2010 at 6:47 pm

  29. Erin @ A Girl & Her Mutt on July 17, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    That wrap is nuts! It looks so good. Mmmm..

    Glad you got him on the chocolate cherry bomb wagon!

  30. Melissa @ Tryingtoheal on July 17, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    you’re gonna hate me when i tell you that birds are decedents of dinosaurs. hahaha!

    and those sweet potato fries look awesome! they’re such big pieces!

  31. LisaG on July 17, 2010 at 7:54 pm

    Your pictures are making me need another beach fix. When you wrote “You crossed the line” I automatically thought the Florida state line! Have a great weekend.

  32. http://tanyasdaily.blogspot.com/ on July 17, 2010 at 8:22 pm

    Those sweet potato fries look really good and deserts….look the best.

  33. Allison on July 17, 2010 at 8:27 pm

    I go to Flagler College in St. Augustine, a quick 30 minute drive south:):) well have to go to yoga next time your around! (confession time: I have never gone to a class before, kinda scared to go by myself, but i have done tons of dvds though) Have an awesome time on your quick vacation!

    • LisaG on July 17, 2010 at 8:30 pm

      That college is so beautiful’

  34. Ann on July 17, 2010 at 8:35 pm

    I love the pilot’s reaction to your smoothie! And I’m agreed with the other comments. No one could dislike the CC Bomb!!!

  35. rachael on July 17, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    Kalmata olives make me drool:) Hope you and the pilot have a fabulous getaway!

  36. A Teenage Gourmet on July 17, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    Hehe, the bird comment. 🙂 I made my first chocolate cherry bomb two days ago.

  37. Jacquie on July 17, 2010 at 9:37 pm

    Awww Jacksonville! I lived there until I was 8 🙂 Have a fabulous little vacation!

  38. Anya @ Fitness & Sunshine on July 17, 2010 at 9:50 pm

    I love the Melting Pot. The resort looks gorgeous, I hope you guys have fun!

    Also a question about spirulina: I’ve had it in one of those Odwalla juices before and didn’t really taste anything strange. If I add it to a smoothie myself, does it have a distinct taste?

    • Fitnessista on July 17, 2010 at 11:00 pm

      thank you!
      it has an interesting taste but i think the pilot wouldn’t have noticed if i wouldn’t have told him 😉

  39. kaila proulx on July 17, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    i love spirulina in smoothies! Pilot, try it lol! Jackonsville looks absolutely gorg and i am so jealous you are going to the melting pot. :)I love the scallops, salmon, and shrimp entree with the vegetable buillion! Perfecto.

  40. Ilana on July 17, 2010 at 10:27 pm

  41. Elli @ 16 and Losing It on July 17, 2010 at 11:26 pm

    Haha that face is classic! Your lunch looks so yummy! I love when restaurants have great vegetarian and vegan selections! It doesn’t happen often enough!

  42. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on July 17, 2010 at 11:48 pm

    Oh I love that you guys are able to have this beautiful weekend time together! You need it, deserve it, and are doing it 🙂 YAY for that!!!

  43. Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather on July 18, 2010 at 12:54 am
