Friday is here my friends and it feels gooood. I’m working til 12 then I have another wedding filled weekend!! One of my best friends is getting married and I’m in the wedding so its sure to be a busy one.

If you are a fan of Fashion Fitness Foodie’s facebook page you would’ve saw a status I posted about 3 weeks ago that read “When I hit 50,000 page views I’m going to do a giveaway!” Well, I hit 50,000 about a week and a half ago but am a huge slacker or what I like to call “really busy” so it had been put off til today.

What better day then a Friday to have a giveaway though? See, I was just waiting for the perfect time 😉 Since it’s also a FAVORITE Friday I figured I would give away some of my favorite things to all of you who read my ramblings and give me motivation every day!

So to thank you all for putting up with me here is what you can win! A mixture of fashion, fitness and a lot of food 😉

  • Jillian Michaels 30 day shred – Jillian will kick your behind!!
  • Yogi Granola Crisps (Blueberry) – I’m addicted to these… Clearly I bought two so I wouldn’t be tempted to break open the bag for the giveaway – and they’re almost gone. :/
  • White Chocolate Wonderful Peanut Butter – Peanut Butter. NO explanation needed.
  • Clif Mojo Mountain Trail Mix Bar – I’ve just started getting into these. De.freaking.licious.

Food Success

Whew, Tuesday’s eats were a million bajillion (yes, that’s a word) times better than Mondays. Thanks for all of your OIAJ and OOIAJ tips – I have prepared them for Wednesdays wake up! I kicked my morning off with one of my favorite staples…Oatmeal! I just realized its been weeks since i had this. Unacceptable. I also topped it with some banana fro-yo that was blended with chocolate amazing grass and some of my favorite granola (Yogi blueberry).

I knew from this meal my day was going to be I’m sure you’ve had oatmeal and banana fro-yo but if you never had them together now is the time. You wont regret it…and if you do, give me a call and i’ll come over and finish it for you.

We had a little snow on the ground this morning which meant work would be a tad delayed so I thought I’d get my workout in. I attempted to do Jillians Yoga Meltdown – but i only lasted 17 minutes. Sometimes her voice annoys me and today happened to be one of those days. Instead, I switched to a Pilates Core Sculpt video On Demand and called it a day. It wasn’t the best workout, but it was something! Do you ever do the On Demand videos? What is your favorite? PS: Check out my favorite boots to wear when it snows – No more ruining of the uggs!

Lunch was a shredded chicken breast with BBQ sauce on a sandwich thin. My favorite BBQ sauce is Kraft’s Thick and Spicy Brown Sugar. It’s probably easy to re-create and I should do just that because when I read the ingredient list I wasn’t too thrilled… Oh well, I’ll forgive myself this time because it was delicious 🙂 (sorry iphone pic)

I also tested out another goodie from my lo-carb purchase… Ding, Ding, Ding…We have a winner!! This made up for the failure of the Banana Supreme pancakes I attempted yesterday. This 1.5 oz bag had 15 grams of protein and 14 carbs, can’t beat it. They also tasted like Cinnamon Toast Crunch 🙂 I’m not sure if I can buy these in stores around here so I’m going to purchase a 12 pack online. If you’d like to try them you can buy them HERE. $9.25 and free shipping for over $25 (i always find other things to buy – its amazon so you can buy ANYTHING – oh and for those who asked where i got the donut pan it was amazon)

I came home and had a quick bowl or two of cereal before heading to Chuck E Cheese for my two favorite girls birthday party!


On the third day of self-love week I gave myself a facial… I would post a picture of it but I guarantee you would be scarred for life and I still want you to read my blog 🙂

Day 26: Your Dream Wedding – No words necessary…Just pictures and dreams.

Lots of sweets, pink and orange everywhere and a warm summer day. Sounds perfect to me 🙂 I’m all about the details!!

Tomorrow I plan on doing a post on something that effects more people than we think in honor of NEDA week. I am also going to wake up and try my OOIAJ! It should be a great Wednesday. Have a happy humpday 🙂

QUESTIONS : Do you use the Video On Demand workouts? What is your favorite? Do you think orange and pink for a wedding is too flashy? It’s always been my dream!
