It all started with a little post about MAKEUP,

 [Nars Fashion Icon kit]

and how to get a fresh off the treadmill glow.

I hope to make The Fitted Apron more than just a blog about healthy living but too also include my passion for fashion, BEAUTY ((both inner and out)), and the practice of yoga while still keeping things light and witty.

Congrats again Britt e-mail me your info.

Happy Hump Day only two more days till the weekend!

If you’re wondering why I haven’t posted very many dinners lately it’s because they haven’t been anything special. I guess you could say I’m in a dinner rut.

Breakfast and lunch have been pretty fun lately.

Monday’s breakfast:

Heart-shaped pancakes topped with reddi wip, a drizzle of kodiac cakes mountain berry syrup and a sprinkle of L.O.V.E

Tuesday’s lunch:

Green egg (spinach-artichoke dip) sandwich on breadsmith multi-grain bread, with a side of carrot sticks and a simple salad. The salad was mixture of romaine lettuce and cilantro drizzled with salt, pepper and fresh squeezed lime juice.

The star of the lunch was a yogurt parfait. Layers of  low-fat vanilla yogurt and mixed frozen berries topped with granola and a H.E.A.R.T, made for a good ending.

Todays breakfast:

A bowl of  mom’s best malllow-oats with 1/2 TLC pumpkin spice granola bar, 1/2 sliced banana and a sprinkle of chia seeds.

and lunch:  

Pork tenderloin over a bed of romaine, cilantro, cucumber, tomato slices and some H.O.T salsa. I made another simple salad dressing with fresh squeezed lime juice and little salt and pepper.

Another yogurt parfait.

This time I mashed up a 1/2 sweet potato seasoned with cinnamon and layered it between some lfv yogurt. Topped with a sprinkle of granola and banana slices.

I’m not sure what I’m having for dinner tonight. I told you I was in a rut! I think I’ll head over to peas and crayons and look for some inspiration.

But before I do, here’s a quick recap of today’s workout(s).

75 minutes of Ashtanga yoga. I normally do Vinyasa but today I stepped out side the box and tried something new! If you’re not familiar with yoga Ashtanga is a good place to start. It’s a series of poses that become the building blocks to any style of yoga. I sweat my little heart out! If you don’t think yoga is good workout, give it a try, and then tell me what you think.


Description:Breath, bhandas and drisiti! Ashtanga is the building block of Vinyasa Flow yoga, and learning aspects of the full Primary Series will help you feel comfortable in just about any class. Perfect for new students and the well seasoned practitioner. -TYC-


After class I laced up my shoes, grabbed a ZICO, put the lime in the coconut and ran for 45 minutes outside. It was a sunny 65 degrees today! It felt like Spring. Speaking of Spring do you need a new nail polish color for your toesies?

Happy Hump Day again and Shanti (peace),


TFA’s First Giveaway

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day and all things cutsey I’ll be giving away a new bottle of NARS nail polish in Orgasm.

In this post, I said was going to take the fashion icon kit back and purchase the blush separately.


After reading some of your comments and wearing the gloss a little longer I changed my mind and decided to keep everything. I’m so glad I did,the  lip gloss doesn’t bleed as much as I thought it did, you just have to use a smaller amount and apply it correctly. Did you know that you should only apply lip gloss to the center of your pout? It prevents the lip gloss from running to the corners of your mouth. In this case a little goes a long way. The blush gives a fresh off the treadmill glow, and the nail polish is a soft coral pink with hints of gold that would flatter any skin tone.  I think I’ll be wearing the nail polish well into the summer months, It would make a great pedi color. Tory Burch sandals anyone?

Now that I have a bottle of my own and really like it, I want to share one with y’all. All you have to do is leave a comment telling me what your favorite nail polish color is. I will pick a random number and announce the winner Friday.



(remember the giveaway is only for the nail polish)
