Fitness Closet

Fitness Girl Problems:

1) having more workout clothes in my closet vs work + going out outfits. Yes, that's a REAL problem! :)

2) the 'Active Wear' section of the store is the first place I go to the minute I step through the doors. It's not intentional...

3) Buying not one but TWO pairs of athletic shoes is perfectly normal.

4) No matter how much I downsize my closet, there's always some tees that get deemed as 'gym' bound...

5) Every New Years Eve finds me resolving to become more fashionable: street smart and edgy. And I am getting better. But...

In truth, most days I not only sleep in yoga pants but go out and about in comfy attire. Although it's athletic and casual, I realize I must find a happy balance within my closet. It is true though, I am most CONTENT being in my element. And that's all that matters. :)

Tuscan-Style Grilled Tuna Steak w/ Strawberry Spinach Salad

Tuscan-Style Grilled Tuna Steak w/ Strawberry Spinach Salad
Found an appealing Tuna Steak recipe and although I cut the serving size to accommodate my dinner needs, it was nonetheless flavored with fresh herbs which complimented the fish, grilled to perfection and enjoyed with STRAWBERRY SPINACH Salad & Raspberry Poppy Seed Dressing, Yes, this is SO my type of night... :)
Another week successfully completed - both physically and nutritionally. Here's to others out there, facing their fears, triumphing over goals big and small, and greeting each day with a fresh new start.

Every day is a journey and this Italian Year has been just as such. These days I make ~3 Italian meals/dishes per week as that is about all my stomach can handle. Something about the combination of the rich ingredients, introduced daily was wreaking havoc on my system. Thus in order to preserve my sanity, shape and genuine first love of all things Italian, a slight modification to this 'Italian Diet' was a necessity! I still very much LOVE Italian food, and have been researching possible Wine & Dine trips I can join next year. One way or another, I shall make it to that beautiful country of my youthful dreams...and experience it first hand.

Blackened Salmon w/ Pineapple Salsa

Blackened Salmon is my favorite! Spicy yet sweet, flavorful yet still so loyal to the freshness of the wild-caught fish. Topped with fresh made Pineapple Salsa... D E L I C I O U S! Love it for dinner over steamed rice and accompanied with veggies. Or topped on a salad for a light lunch. Can't imagine life any other way but the HEALTHY way.
