    Congratulations on taking your first family vacation!!!!!!!! How was Livi on the plane?

    • Brittany on July 1, 2012 at 9:53 pm

      was that the little hungry caterpilar I saw you reading to Liv? One of my favorites! I loved it when I was a baby!

      • Fitnessista on July 1, 2012 at 9:54 pm

        yes, we read it all the time- she loves when the caterpillar becomes a butterfly πŸ™‚

        • Brittany on July 1, 2012 at 10:01 pm

          That was my favorite part too!!!

    • Fitnessista on July 1, 2012 at 9:54 pm

      we drove- the first hour was a little rough, but after that, she was fantastic

      • Brittany on July 1, 2012 at 10:04 pm

        Wow. I could never drive to san diego with my parents and brother let alone take a baby! I do live in boston though so driving all the way across the country would be rough on anyone! Glad you made it. How long will you be there? I am going to San Francisco at the end of the month and I cant wait. That is my family vacation this year.

  2. Julie on July 1, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    In San Diego? Cute purple pants. Are those Zumba pants?

    • Fitnessista on July 1, 2012 at 9:58 pm

      yep- la jolla! nope, lululemon but i wear them for zumba πŸ™‚

      • Holly on July 2, 2012 at 10:54 am

        I was going to ask where you got those pants. I LOVE them! Are they a recent lululemon purchase?

        • Fitnessista on July 2, 2012 at 12:26 pm

          thank you! fairly recent- a blog friend actually sent them to me! i paypaled her and she shipped them, it was awesome πŸ™‚

          • Holly on July 3, 2012 at 4:22 pm

            Oh nice! Thanks for letting me know πŸ™‚ I’ll have to check out the website to see if I can find them. So cute!!

  3. Suzanne on July 1, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    Ha! I’ve been to that cupcake place! πŸ™‚ Did you enjoy it?
    Hope you’re having a wonderful time!

    • Fitnessista on July 1, 2012 at 10:10 pm

      Yes, love cups! I’ve been thinking about it since the last time we were here- so good πŸ™‚

  4. Tasha on July 1, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    It’s funny seeing all the familiar pictures. We live by the university campus, so right by where you are. If you have a chance to go to another brunch, try out Brockton Villa. Happy vacationing πŸ™‚

  5. Brittany on July 1, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    I love your bag! Is it a diaper bag? What is it?!

    • Fitnessista on July 1, 2012 at 10:22 pm

      Thank you! Yeah it’s a Kate spade diaper bag

  6. Kristen on July 1, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    I love the pic of Livi looking up at her daddy! *melt*

  7. Morgan on July 1, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    How do you tighten the shoulder straps on the BOB like that??? I can’t seem to get them tight enough for my 7 month old. A tutorial would be useful!! thanks πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on July 1, 2012 at 10:23 pm

      I have no idea- Tom set it up. I’ll ask him how he did it

  8. Ashley Smith on July 1, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    Are you guys in La Jolla?? If so, you have to go to The Coffee Cup for breakfast! Amazing!!!We just got back from San Diego on Tuesday and coming back to the Tucson heat was hard! Hope you guys have great weather there! Enjoy! πŸ™‚

    • Courtney (peace love & sweat) on July 2, 2012 at 3:01 am

      La Jolla food is amazing, next time you visit check out Prepkitchen, Whisknladle, and Harry’s Coffee shop, as well as the farmer’s market for breakfast on Sundays! Good coffee and free samples πŸ™‚

  9. Jenn (eating bender) on July 1, 2012 at 10:33 pm

  22. Courtney (peace love & sweat) on July 2, 2012 at 3:00 am

    La Jolla! My favorite place in the world, Beach Grass Cafe in Solana Beach also has amazing breakfast! You can’t go wrong walking Liv up and down the coast in a stroller-such a fantastic area.

    • Fitnessista on July 2, 2012 at 12:30 pm

      we’ve done that twice already- she was so happy πŸ™‚

  25. Michelle on July 2, 2012 at 8:03 am

    Your pics are beautiful! What fun!
    Quick question, when you put quinoa in the rice cooker, what do you do? Also, I need a rice cooker…any recommendations?

    • Fitnessista on July 2, 2012 at 12:28 pm

      i put double water to quinoa and put it on the brown rice setting. the rice cooker is from costco and was like $40?

  26. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on July 2, 2012 at 8:16 am

  30. AJ on July 2, 2012 at 10:26 am

    Looks like so much fun! I love the La Jolla area–my little brother is stationed at Miramar, so when I visit, I always make him go. Kayaking by the caves is my favorite! Enjoy the vacation!

  31. Chelsa on July 2, 2012 at 10:43 am

    She is too cute!!

  35. Jackie on July 2, 2012 at 12:18 pm

    Love your blog Gina! I’m a new follower and have been reading it for about 2 weeks now. Did two Tabata weeks and just have really enjoyed reading. I decided this week to do your shape-up… Sad I missed the beginning of it, but this weeks was a killer good workout this morning… Followed it by step πŸ™‚ the lunch of the chickpea slaw! Enjoy your vacay, and thanks for all your amazing advice. We are TTC as well, going on about 8 months and reading those posts are amazing how close my experience is going to how yours did. Going to a naturopath now, with acupuncture and the whole shebang. Bought the two books you recommended to read, so hopefully we will have luck too!

    • Fitnessista on July 2, 2012 at 12:25 pm

      sending lots of good vibes and baby wishes to you!

  36. Emily @ Glitz Glam Granola on July 2, 2012 at 2:59 pm

    Yay for a little San Diego vacay! Don’t you just love La Jolla?? I was born there but my parents moved when I was little sadly! And the Cottage is one of my favorite SD restaurants… their granola is out of this world and is very dangerous when you buy a bag of it πŸ˜‰ And that cupcake place is fab! Can’t wait to hear more about your trip and if you ended up staying at my fave hotel… La Valencia!

  37. Soniathe Mexigarian on July 2, 2012 at 5:44 pm

    So jealous your in my old college town! Love the pitcure of Olivia and Dad πŸ™‚ Adorable. I hope you have a great time down there and enjoy the lovely weather. I will live vicariously through your photos. <3

    • Fitnessista on July 2, 2012 at 11:10 pm

      thank you! <3

  38. Abby on July 2, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    It looks so beautiful there! I’m super jealous of what must be sweater weather there, its been way to hot here!

  39. Pure2raw twins on July 2, 2012 at 10:49 pm

  40. Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie on July 3, 2012 at 7:02 am

    It looks like you are having a wonderful time!! Livi is so adorable, I’m so glad you’re getting to spend time together as a little family and enjoy yourself!

  41. Kate @ Run with Kate on July 4, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    Are you in La Jolla? Sorry, I’m a lurker and I never comment, but if you ARE in fact in La Jolla, you are in my neck of the woods right now and that is super exciting! Enjoy your vacay! The weather is kind of crummy today — it’s so strange. But that will quickly turn around. πŸ™‚
