Itsy Bitsy Spider…

Good morning mi amores! I hope everyone is having a fabulicious day! I am pretty much lounging around today until I have to head into the city for another IntenSati class! This will be my 10th class thus far. I went to one on Tuesday night which was taught by Patricia Moreno and OMG I thought I was going to die!!!! The AC and the fans were off and it was super crowded.  It was so freaking hot that the mirrors were fogged up and we could not even see ourselves. Every so often Patricia would write something inspirational on the mirrors “GREAT JOB” to keep us motivated. I remember at one point we had to stop so we could wipe the sweat off the floor because we were all sliding around lol. On Wednesday morning I woke up at 4:30 AM (I think I am a masochist) and went to another class taught by Natalia! Can I just say that out of all the instructors, she might be my favorite! I am going to miss attending her classes once the challenge is over…sad panda. After the class, Missy and I decided to do some upper body strength training with hand weights…it was a perfect ending to a high cardio class. Missy it was my pleasure to kick your butt! lol


For lunch on Tuesday I had Amy’s Cheese Enchilada


I also tried this new bar that the fabulous Tif gave me when she was in NYC! I fell in love with this Blueberry Granola bar; to the point that I tracked the owner of the company down and I am going to order a dozen more! lol


Tuesday night I was STARVING after the class and could not wait to get home and eat din din. It was pretty late and I didn’t want to eat anything too heavy so I had a toasted Nature’s Pride a Whole Wheat Bun with Peanut Butter and a sliced Banana…this was perrrrrfect!


Wednesday morning after my IntenSati class, I had a Green Monster with Strawberries, 1/2 a Banana, Coffee, Splenda, 1 scoop of Chocolate LMM, and 1 cup of FF Milk.


For Lunch I had a Black Bean Burger with a Nature’s Pride Bun, Tomato Slice, Part Skim Mozzarella, and my usual Mayo and Ketchup mix.


and for dessert I had Protein Cookie Dough with sliced Strawberries…


I was not really hungry when din din rolled around so I had a WW Pita with Cracked Red Pepper Hummus and another serving of protein Cookie Dough


This morning I made a batch of Chocolate and Banana Protein Muffins and had one for breakfast with Oikos Honey Yogurt and PB with my usual Cafe con leche


Birthday Bloggie  Din Din!

As some of you know, my big 3 0 is right around the corner and I would love to celebrate it with all of my bloggie friends! I am thinking of having a bloggie din din on Friday the 23rd. Most likely it will be some sort of Mexican Restaurant in the city. Honestly I want to have it at 5 Burros but I am not sure if the girls that live in the city would come to Queens; however it IS a fairly fast and easy ride (E and F Express Trains or Local G, R, and V trains to 71st and continental). Let me know if you would like to come and also if you know of any yummy and not uber expensive (I don’t want people NOT to come because it’s too much dinero) Mexican Restaurant in the city. I hope to see you there!!!!!!

Ohhhh and something totally unrelated but super funny! I don’t know what some people might think about me but I DO know what Tiff thinks!!! Check out the dream she had about me! Hence the Title of my post hahahaha…and once you read it, you will know what this question is about…What would your theme song be?????



  1. yayaya the big brithday is coming up and I think I know what someone is getting!! i am so excited we ar going to be doing turbo fire at the same time!!! you will love it (i hope!!) great eats, girl! sounds like you are loving Intensati which is great!!!!!

  2. I think everyone in the city should come to 5 Burro. It is worth it and much cheaper! Haha I didn't check out that other place yet though. Can't wait for tonight!! Save me a nice spot since I can't get there till at least 6:15 haha.

  3. Protein cookie dough for dinner?? My kind of dinner for sure!!

    I wish I could come to your birthday dinner!! You need to come to NM!

  4. I am up for it. Maybe I can get picked up after :) Did you know it was restaurant week?

  5. awww HAPPY EARLY BDAY!!! that is aweesome girl!! LOVE your eats! always loving yo amys meals! makes me want em!

  6. My big 3-0 is quickly approaching as well. I'm not nearly as excited as you about it though...

    Sounds like the Challenge is going well. That's some work to do so many of those classes!

  7. Love Amy's enchiladas! And of course, banana and peanut butter, my favorite!

  8. lol.. happy early b-day!!! i think we may be in town next weekend again, we'll call u, most likely you'll be asleep, but at least i still get to wish you a belated =D. i read tiff's blog, she's funny.. hope things are going well.. u blogged 2 days in a row. so proud!

  9. Yayyyyy itsy!! LOL I seriously think it's because I left my damn nicotine patch on that night but maybe I will do it again and have a dream thats more explicit that goes further into your story!

    30 will be absolutely fabulous for you, I promise. It's funny how I feared it for so long but now that I am here I am having soooo much fun!

    So as you know, I can't go to your bday dinner but 5 Burros is definitely my vote---the food in y'alls pictures always looks so good and who doesn't look those little animals they put in your drinks?

  10. You always make tofu and bean burgers (two things I am not a huge fan of) look REALLY good!! I need to come to your place for tofu and bean burgers.

    Your 30th b-day is coming up, and I really want to fly to NYC just to hang out with you and celebrate with you and all the other bloggers! If I could I would in a second. I wish I had tons of money (and time). Boo

    I'll be in NYC sooner or later, I have a lot of friends over there!

  11. You are the IntenSati MASTER!

    You know I will do my best to be at your fiesta! It depends on my work schedule, unfortunately, and what experiments I have to do that day...but I will try to plan around it :P

    Blockheads has pretty good mexican food...and awesome drinks!

  12. What an exciting birthday! I wish I lived closer to you!

  13. I want to take the Bolt bus to NYC and go to your party!!! I need to make this happen...

  14. tiffany sent me the same bars...and yes...I went on the website as well. I'm hooked...I think she secretly owns the company.

  15. gahhhh i think people should go to 5 burros! it's SO delicious and the meals are totes worth the commute! you should call 5 burros and see if they'll set up a thing! definitely keep me updated on the deets! i can prob make it if it's at 5 burros :)

    glad you and missy are killin it in insaniti!!
