    Is it weird to think you and the pilot will be known as “dad” and “mom” or “Olivia’s dad/Olivia’s mom” from now on? That dynamic has always been really interesting to me… How do you make sure you still maintain that you’re your own person and not just someone’s mom? I know that having that title is something one would take great pride and joy in, but for your own health and sanity in the long run, that’s what really gets me thinking sometimes- about that gentle balance. The picture of the pilot and her labeled “dad and livi” got me thinking:) Also, how does that affect how you view your significant other? Seeing them as a dad/mom instead of just your lovebug, you know?:) Ah, a post for another day I assume!

    • Fitnessista on May 21, 2012 at 3:35 pm

      that’s why i think it’s really important to keep doing the things you love and maintain contact with your friends. i still see a lot of my single friends, workout, and work part-time because those are things i enjoy and help me feel like me. it’s challenging to take time for yourself, but i think it’s crucial to keep your identity.
      i label pics like that because they go in a folder for liv- this way, if she wants to find a pic of herself with “dad” it will be easier than searching for “hottie with our baby” πŸ˜‰

        hahahaha got it!:)

  17. Kristen on May 21, 2012 at 4:33 am

    A trip to Home Goods. Am I right? LOVE that store!

    Hot pilot+laughing baby= Perfection

    And look at Bella. What a little ham!

  18. Christie on May 21, 2012 at 8:08 am

    Liv is such a doll!!!!!!! πŸ™‚

  19. Jamie on May 21, 2012 at 8:27 am

    BEAUTIFUL baby!!!

  20. sarah on May 21, 2012 at 8:47 am

    I think you have mentioned this before but, what type of camera do you use when not using the iphone to take pics? I seriously need an upgrade!

  21. Claire @ Live and Love to Eat on May 21, 2012 at 9:33 am

    Love the daddy/Livi photo! πŸ™‚

  22. Chelsa on May 21, 2012 at 9:56 am

    Cute pics. Liv is one gorgeous baby!!

  23. Kristen on May 21, 2012 at 10:04 am

    1 – Livi is ADORABLE.. too freakin cute and 2 – Bella is hilarious! Is she rolling around scratching her own back? Dogs manipulate and twerk their bodies crazily when doing that!

  24. Lizzie on May 21, 2012 at 10:31 am

    Gahh love the pic! It looks like the Pilot is fake biting Liv and she just loves it!

  25. Liz on May 21, 2012 at 10:31 am

    Aww, super cute pictures! I finally tried your breakfast cookie this morning and I have no idea what took me so long — it’s delicious! It’s by far my favorite cold oats recipie!

  26. Julie @ Running and Riley on May 21, 2012 at 10:58 am

    Livi is SOOO cute and I love that pic of Bell…reminds me of my dog. πŸ˜‰ Is she scratching her back, or sleeping like that? haha

  27. Danielle on May 21, 2012 at 11:01 am

    You are such an adorable family!!!! Love that picture of Livi!!! What a happy baby πŸ™‚

  28. Kelly on May 21, 2012 at 11:16 am

    This is my favourite pic of Olivia!!! How cute is she?!

  29. Ramani on May 21, 2012 at 11:38 am

    Livi- you are gorgeous. Gina- how did you make that fish? Looks good and healthy.

  30. Beverly on May 21, 2012 at 11:52 am

  34. Jessica on May 21, 2012 at 8:13 pm

    Such a fun photo!!

    Please tell me what did you put in those Chilequiles???

    • Fitnessista on May 21, 2012 at 9:56 pm

      i didn’t make them- eclectic cafe did. and WOW. they were awesome!

  35. Caitlin on May 21, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    Is it possible to make a smoothie ahead of time to bring to work and have at some point during the day? Can’t make them at the office, but would love to have a mid-day smoothie sometimes without going to a store and buying one. Just curious if anyone has tried this or has this problem of smoothies and their workplace?

    • Fitnessista on May 21, 2012 at 10:27 pm

      i’ve made them in advance before, but they separate and get kind of gross. i drink it anyway, but it’s not the same. anyone else have tips?

  36. Cathy on May 22, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    Hi Gina
    I add xanthan gum to my smoothie and it stays emulsified for a few hours so I can have it after my workout!
    Great family pictures and love your comment back about being “labeled”.

    • Fitnessista on May 22, 2012 at 12:50 pm

      brilliant!!! πŸ™‚
      thanks, girl <3

  37. hillary on May 22, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    yes! you just have to get a GOOD insulated thermos…i have a good one (VEGA sent it to me and i cannot find it for sale online to save my life but i am sure there are other good ones out there). i literally put this thing in my swim bag –in tucson–and right after my workout shake it up (because i think they will inevitably separate a bit) and it is pretty good to go, with fruit, veggies, vega and all!

  38. Ann @ Running With Chopstix on May 23, 2012 at 5:31 pm

    Livi has the largest eyes!!
