Pilot’s Day Off

Hey! Happy Monday <3 Hope your week is off to a great start.

I’m a little later than normal with today’s morning post, but the Pilot took the day off work, so we’ve been hanging out. He has a ton of leave saved up (92 days, some of which he’ll lose if he doesn’t use), so he figured he’d take a long weekend and use a day of leave. I’m a fan of that 🙂

He went into work to take care of some paperwork for an hour, so I hit up the base gym.

Did some cardio,

got my little station set up

weights

and did the Ferocious Arm Workout I posted last week. Instead of doing chest presses on my back, I did them angled with the stability ball, and also used the stability ball under my shins for the push-ups – otherwise my belly would touch the floor.

Topped it off with 25 right leg lunges, 50 squats and 25 left leg lunges, it was a great little workout.

MY OTHER RECIPES


Breakfast was courtesy of the Pilot, who makes way better omelets than I do 😉

bfast

Toast with jelly, along with an amazing omelet:

-1 egg + 2 egg whites

-almond milk – he always adds this to eggs and it makes them so much fluffier

-goat cheese

-mustard

-spinach

-dehydrated tomatoes

I had some local orange tomatoes that were on their last leg, so instead of letting them die a slow death, yesterday I popped them into the dehydrator with some oregano, garlic and sea salt.

They came out rather nicely.

I also finished the Naked juice we shared on the way home from base:

Wish away, little Bell.

We actually don’t have a ton planned for today, but I have some work stuff to get done. I’m sure the Pilot will have no prob relaxing in the meantime 🙂

Enjoy your Monday and I’ll see ya later today <3

    “and also used the stability ball under my shins for the push-ups – otherwise my belly would touch the floor.”
    you are so unbelievably cute! i’m reading your blog from France this semester, it’s making me salivate for gf goodies but it’s also a lot harder to find a gym with weights and machines, so your workouts are amazing for me! merci 🙂

    • Fitnessista on September 26, 2011 at 3:19 pm

      so glad they’re helping!
      hope you’re having a blast in france 🙂

        thank you! it’s quite the place, truly. it’s wonderful to be able to walk everywhere though, such a blessing! and if you’re looking for boots, i’d say come here. i die a little every time i walk by the million shoe stores and can’t go in!

  6. Kelly @ Laughter, Strength, and Food on September 26, 2011 at 3:20 pm

    Relaxing on a Monday is the best!! Enjoy your day! 😀

  7. kathleen @ the daily crumb on September 26, 2011 at 3:25 pm

    i love the almond milk trick with eggs… i definitely notice a change in fluffiness 🙂 so nice you have the pilot around for a bonus day!

  8. SaraRM on September 26, 2011 at 3:30 pm

    What a lovely day with your pilot.

    I LOVE your quotes, keep ’em coming! 🙂

  9. Krystina (Organically Me) on September 26, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    That is a perfect looking omelet. Have a good day. 🙂

  10. Chelcie @ chelcie's food files on September 26, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    I really like that quote! fits perfectly for what I’ve been going through lately, thanks for sharing!

  11. Hilary on September 26, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    I love that quote! It is something I definitely need to remind myself of more. Enjoy your day:)

  12. Molly on September 26, 2011 at 4:38 pm

    I am contemplating getting a food dehydrater…do you recommend any specific brand/type/etc?

  13. Haley @ Fit, Young, and Fabulous on September 26, 2011 at 4:39 pm

    Almond milk in eggs?! Never thought of that! Definitely trying! (: Enjoy the Pilot’s day off!

  14. Allison @ Food for Healing on September 26, 2011 at 4:51 pm

    nothing wrong with a little downtime together, enjoy it while its still quiet with no baby around 😛

  15. Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie on September 26, 2011 at 4:52 pm

    You gotta love a man that can cook! Enjoy your day with him! <3

  16. Amanda @ the beauty notebooks on September 26, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    I’m going to try to make a version of that omelet. the addition of goat cheese sounds heavenly.

    And isn’t it the best when they can use up leave? 🙂

  17. Lindsay@ In Sweetness and In Health on September 26, 2011 at 5:55 pm

    Aw, that’s great that your man has the day off! Enjoy your time together :).

  18. S on September 26, 2011 at 6:02 pm

    Hey Gina,

    JW if you could do another post on how you have adapted your eating habits and living with your H. I’m a nutritionist and love all foods that are healthy, esp vegetables. My H will hardly touch anything green and loves anything that will clog your arteries. I’m having a hard time cooking for us both without making 2 separate meals.

    • Fitnessista on September 26, 2011 at 9:14 pm

      i haven’t, but many times i do end up having to separate our meals. it’s not too bad once you get the hang of it

  19. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga on September 26, 2011 at 6:46 pm

    Oh those little tomatoes look great! I never think to use my dehyd for things like that. I always just use the oven. But I love sun dried tomatoes and the chewier factor. I need to remember this one 🙂

    Glad you and The Pilot had some quality time together…yay for extra days off!

  20. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on September 26, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    I had dehydrated tomatoes in a salad at a restaurant once and I loved them!

    Enjoy your day off with the Pilot! 🙂

  21. Roselyn @ A Balanced Fit on September 26, 2011 at 7:31 pm

    I love the end of the fiscal year when hubbies have to burn leave days. 🙂 Mine’s doing the same tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of your day. 🙂

    • Fitnessista on September 26, 2011 at 9:13 pm

      thanks- enjoy your day with your hubby tomorrow!

  22. Sara @ RunnerWife on September 26, 2011 at 8:43 pm

    Glad you got to spend some time with your hubby! Enjoy it 🙂

  23. mallory on September 26, 2011 at 8:54 pm

    I LOVE naked juice so much. Green machine is my favorite.

    • Fitnessista on September 26, 2011 at 9:12 pm

      i picked up a green machine, too- love that flavor! i heard there’s a blueberry one that’s really good too?

  24. Heather on September 26, 2011 at 8:59 pm

    Hooray for yo man getting to take the day off with you. So nice. <3

    I love your quotes, Gina. They are always so inspiring and ring true in my heart!

    Stay lovely,
    Heather

      thank you, mary! welcome to the little blog 🙂

  27. Ali on September 27, 2011 at 12:49 am

    Haha, I totally used to eat my eggs with mustard all the time! Those tomatoes look lovely too!

  28. Cindy on September 27, 2011 at 2:23 am

    Hey Gina! I just wanted to stop in and say Hi! and tell you how much I enjoy reading your blog. I’ve been reading it for about a year now and your posts are always a joy to read. Your life seems very real, down to earth, and just so much fun! You’re an inspiration to maintain a healthy lifestyle while having fun and living life! Thanks for writing 🙂

  29. Yolie @ Practising Wellness on September 27, 2011 at 7:04 am

    That sounds like a wonderful workout, Gina! 🙂 Seriously, it’s awesome how fit you are keeping while carry your baby – so inspirational! I love it when you post weights workouts as it gives me (a relative newbie with weight training) loads of ideas. Your omlette and dehydrated tomatoes look gorgeous – what a fantastic kitchen gadget the dehydrator is! I’m commenting a bit late, but hope you had an amazing day with the Pilot! <3 xyx

  30. Cassie on September 27, 2011 at 8:23 am

    Did you like the Alexia sweet potato puffs?

  31. Liz @ Southern Charm on September 27, 2011 at 11:18 am

    Love how Bella is in the background wishing and hoping 🙂

  32. char @ char on a mission on September 27, 2011 at 7:06 pm

    First thing I thought of at the beginning of the post…use it or lose it haha. Glad he used it….the day off 😛
