Soup & Fitness Giveaways

Posted Jan 18 2011 10:36am

It’s a nasty, icy, rainy morning here in the burbs. My clients are extra cautious of my safety these days, so we moved our appointments until a little later.

I am staying warm waiting to leave..and enjoying my new favorite tea:

It’s been a while since I’ve been to Teavana. So, I have found a new love for bagged teas again. Thanks to my clients for the lovely gift basket, or else I would have never tried this flavor!

After my clients today my mom and I are off to start my baby registry! Wish my luck! I am super overwhelmed by the thought of it. I am a rookie at this. the world of swaddle blankets, car seats and breast pumps are foreign land. What brands to buy? Price points, etc? So clueless. All I know is I want a jogger stroller that the infant seat will snap into. Ella will be born in the Spring, so I plan on doing some power walking/ maybe even a little jogging at the park after she’s born.

In honor of my Whole Foods store  one year anniversary, I wanted to have of the FIRST things I made after shopping that location the first time:

Perfect soup for today:

Minestrone Soup

my mother in law gave me this recipe, that she got from her mother in law. I made a few changes, making it vegan. See how it’s made here :-)


The people over at Rubberbanditz were kind enough to send me over a package of their product for review.

I tried out the bands and thought they were very versatile. You can get a full body workout anywhere! This was great for my clients, since I do mobile/ in-home personal training. I always love new toys!!!

From their website :
