Everybody loves a freebie

Happy Friday everyone! I have a sweet (pun, ha) deal for you guys today but first I have some good news! Remember those goals I posted yesterday!? Well I tackled the biggest one on the list! I am now officially employed 🙂 Wahoo. It can be extremely stressful searching for a job, re-writing cover letters and filling out endless applications but I am happy to say it’s all over! I start Monday so today is really my last day of freedom. Maybe my boyfriend will want to celebrate and take me to see Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj in Atlantic City tomorrow night??

I’ll be pleading for this when he gets home from work today. It’s worth a shot? 🙂

Yesterday I received a package from Activia. The poor fed-ex delivery man was super confused as he handed the box over because it was addressed to Fashion Fitness Foodie. After I signed, he asked – “so are you fashion?”. I’m really still not sure if he was joking.

I opened the package to see two yogurts inside.

French and Greek Yogurts – Yum! I decided I would have the Greek Yogurt after spin class.

1 container of activia dannon greek yogurt with 1/2 of a banana and some love grown granola.

This yogurt is so thick and creamy it almost reminded me of a mousse! We all know I love my dessert so this gets my stamp of approval.

To get your FREE yogurts head over to Activia’s Facebook page *below* and like them. You will then fill out a form and print your coupon. Easy enough, right? And while your on Facebook feel free to like my page as well 🙂

Beat the Heat

Who knew when I moved NORTH that I would be living in 120 degree weather?? Not this girl. I woke up with quite the appetite and was craving oatmeal. Really? When there’s a heat wave outside?? I had to talk myself out of it by promising oats in a different version.

Plain Greek Yogurt with fresh blueberries and Chocolate Almond Butter Granola. I had to make more because I’m now officially obsessed with it. Look how chunky it is, it’s just plain perfect.

I walked to the gym (because I’m crazy) and begged them to give me a free pass (because I’m unemployed and can’t afford $100 a month on a gym membership) so I could take a class. They did. I have a charming smile.


I took a new to me class at said gym. It was a Les Mills class (like body pump, body combat etc) called CX30. Ever heard of it?? CX30 is a 30 minute class that targets your core. You do 6 sets – 2 on the ground, 2 standing and 2 more on the ground. I really liked it and hope to one day (soon) be able to join that gym so I can be a frequent CX30 class taker.

After class I got in a quick 15 minutes of cardio and headed home in the heatwave. I was ready for lunch so I whipped up another no oven necessary meal. A quick salad:

Romaine Lettuce, leftover black bean burger, corn, cottage cheese, cucumber and a slice of avocado.

I need to pack because I leave for vacation tomorrow and I haven’t even pulled out my suitcase! Such the procrastinator. Truth is, I work better under pressure! 🙂

Tonight I have a date at Smith and Wollensky’s to spend some QT with this QT before I leave

But first, for favorite Friday I thought I’d do my favorite ways to beat the heat!!

1.) Make a HEALTHY smoothie – Preferably one that tastes like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup

2. Make s’mores ice cream

3. If I’m too lazy to make my own ice cream – I’ll head to my favorite fro-yo shop.

That’s a small. Don’t judge me.

4. Go bowling

5. Get a pedicure/manicure – Being pampered and staying inside seems like a win/win situation

6. Read Blogs (DUH) – A hilarious one I saw Cara post today on her facebook page about picking your battles. SO TRUE.

7. Read about the 50 fattiest Foods in the States

New Jersey is known for the Fat Darrell. What is your state known for?

8. Pick a fun craft off the Martha Stewart Website. Yes, I said fun.

9. Head to the beach/pool and get your tan on

10. Last but not least – Read a book in the comfort of your Air Conditioned home. Right now I’m working on this one

Let’s hope my ADD doesn’t kick in and I can finish it 🙂

I’m off to get ready for dinner and maybe attempt packing. See ya tomorrow!
