A beastly mission

Hiiiii 😀 How are you doing? Hope you’ve had a lovely day.

Today has been so crazy! Isn’t that how day’s “off” always turn out? 😉

-Blog

-Haircut

-Errands

-Groceries

-Get teaching supplies/playlists ready

-Post office

-Gym

-Second blog post

-Show

In between everything, I was hit in the face with a mad hankering for tuna salad beast, so I drove to Choice Greens to get my fix:

That beastly beauty had romaine, tuna, avocado, chickpeas, beets, sundried tomatoes, kalamata olives and balsamic. Oh yeah 😀 The avocado was extra — usually when you have to pay to have avocado added to something, restaurants are stingy with it. That salad had maybe half an avocado in it?! Happy day.

MY OTHER VIDEOS

This afternoon, I also enjoyed some brown rice toast topped with Nuttzo

(since I couldn’t wait for today’s promo order to get here, I picked up some at Whole Paycheck to last me until then)

(I like the regular but the peanut-free is what changed my life forever)

and snacked on it while I got my teaching stuff together- it was so exciting to be making teaching playlists again!

Here’s what I’ll be using for Zumba tomorrow:

Song #1 is an intro song to play while guests are coming in, and we’ll end at song #12. The rest are just-in-case songs—sometimes when I get in to teach I hear a song and it’s the last thing I want to do, so it’s good to have backup options. I’m really stoked to make the playlist for my Stretch class next week. I have a feeling Adele, Michael Buble and Ella Fitzgerald will be making appearances.

Well I’m off to get ready for a show we’re going to tonight!

Here’s the outfit:

    Love the outfit — I might steal that look this weekend!

    I almost bought that shirt from Express. 🙂 It’s super cute. My lab HATES being brushed. She acts so crazy while I’m brushing her and then ends with some crazy fast loops around the coffee table. She’s special. But I love her 🙂

    “Today has been so crazy! Isn’t that how day’s “off” always turn out? “– YES!!

    And throw a child into the mix, and life gets even crazier 🙂

    Love your playlist and Im sure everyone else will too.

    Nuttzo, got your opensky promo in my inbox earlier today.

    And I hope you have a great night…your outfit looks great!

    Love the outfit Gina! It’s funny you mention the avo thing, because I was at California Pizza Kitchen for the first time a couple of weekends ago (we don’t have them in Canada and I was visiting Detroit) and I swear, this salad I had was LOADED with avocado! Your tuna salad looks ahhhmazing! 🙂

  5. Sara on May 6, 2011 at 10:20 pm

    You have the best workout music! Your songs definitely get me motivated for an intense run~ I can thank you for all those extra calories burned 🙂

  6. Christin@purplebirdblog on May 6, 2011 at 10:42 pm

    My days off are always super bonkers! Thanks for the Nuttzo promo, I just got my order on!!! 🙂

  7. Danielle on May 6, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    Love the top, is it out right now? I have been avoiding the Mall lately (though I did go into B&N today). LOL

    • Fitnessista on May 7, 2011 at 2:04 am

      i got it about a month ago, but it was on sale. they have a ton of cute tops right now though!

  8. Holly @ The Runny Egg on May 6, 2011 at 10:59 pm

    Love your outfit for tonight! I am going to a bach party tomorrow night and I was thinking of picking up some cute black shorts to wear — I’ll have to swing over to Express in the morning and try some on.

    Have fun!

  9. Leanne (Bride to Mrs.) on May 6, 2011 at 11:01 pm

  10. Steph @ Steph's Life In Motion on May 6, 2011 at 11:07 pm

    I know exactly what you mean about days off! Today was my day off and I am sick! I spent half the day in bed. Boo!

  11. Mindy on May 6, 2011 at 11:07 pm

    I’m obsessed with the Glee version of Blackbird. Landslide is pretty stellar, too.

  12. Vivianne on May 6, 2011 at 11:18 pm

    That outfit is so cute! I just did a quick 20 minute Zumba express DVD today! It is so fun and I definitely feel it working my abs (;

    I hope your classes went well! I love love the new layout by the way (;

  13. Carrie on May 6, 2011 at 11:24 pm

    Nude, patent leather heels were the best thing ever created. Seriously.

  14. Allison @ Food For Healing on May 6, 2011 at 11:54 pm

    oh Bella! lol
    i wanna see that outfit ON you, looks cute. I can’t wait to teach and do fitness stuff like that, it will give me an excuse to buy nice workout stuff! hehe

  15. Elena @ GagaForGrapefruit on May 6, 2011 at 11:55 pm

    that outfit is ADORBS! love!

  16. Ashley@thefitacademic on May 7, 2011 at 12:04 am

    Love the top – adorable! That stretch class sounds amazing! Will any of those be open to the public??

  17. Michelle @ Turning Over a New Leaf on May 7, 2011 at 12:42 am

    I looked up each and every one of those songs on Youtube. Hah! Except one of them, which I already knew I’d done before. I’ve been doing Zumba for three years with three different instructors and I’ve only done three of the songs on that list. I love Waka Waka!

  18. Michelle @ Turning Over a New Leaf on May 7, 2011 at 12:43 am

    ^^ I take that back. Two years**!

  19. ellalinea on May 7, 2011 at 3:45 am

    Love the outfit, the top is very classy! I adoreeeeeeeeeeeeee glee, although I’m 24 I’m soo hooked on that show 🙂

  20. Morgan on May 7, 2011 at 4:19 am

    I love to jam out to Glee in my car..and get a little dance cardio going to it too 😉 Yes, I’m the crazie going dancing down the freeway! lol

    Have fun at Zumba!!

  21. emma on May 7, 2011 at 6:04 am

  22. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on May 7, 2011 at 6:38 am

    Love the outfit! I wish we had Express here in Canada.

  23. Crystal on May 7, 2011 at 6:56 am

    Way to go attacking that to-do list 🙂

  24. Running Mama on May 7, 2011 at 7:00 am

    I love it when you post playlists. I have a pretty fun playlist myself but I always get new ideas from others.

  26. Cara (Yourowntwist) on May 7, 2011 at 9:24 am

    I love the shirt and shoes! 🙂
    Way to knock out that to do list!!

    I’m going to attend my first Zumba class next week and I am SO excited! Any good tips?

  28. Jessica @ Dairy Free Betty on May 7, 2011 at 10:37 am

    That play list looks awesome! I’m not a huge fan Zumba with non zumba songs, if that makes sense!!

    Love your outfit too!! SO pretty!

  29. Tracy on May 7, 2011 at 1:01 pm

  31. Sarah K on May 7, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    I took a zumba class while at school and my favorite was always Waka Waka

    • Fitnessista on May 7, 2011 at 8:11 pm

  33. Dana Marie on May 7, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    I didnt see where the deal it? on the nutzo? The new open sky is a little confusing to me – oh well one day I’ll get to try nutzo — I finally had one of those cool travel smoothie cups come my way! Thanks SELF Workout in the Park event!

  34. Stephanie @ StephSnacks on May 7, 2011 at 6:05 pm
