Another Theme Park

Hey guys! Hope you’re having a great weekend so far! Things are muy bueno over here in Orlando 😀

After my standard vacay bfast (millet, AB and banana), I hit up the gym for a sweaty cardio sesh. I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and 20 minutes of HIIT on the treadmill (including a cool down and warm up). It felt nice to feel last night’s cosmo seeping out of my pores.

Speaking of cosmos…

Have you seen THIS yet?!

*Raises imaginary Manolo in the air* (I don’t own a pair.. yet. Haha)

May 27th can’t come soon enough 😉

I came home to pick up my cousin and grabbed a snack:

raw rev

And we took off for World Market since I have a gift card. It was closed!!!

Our efforts weren’t entirely fruitless….

apple (2)

(I couldn’t help it with that one, heh heh)

we spent an hour digging around in Ross (it’s like a treasure hunt in there) since it was next door. I got a dress for myself, shoes for my cousin and a dress for Bella 😉


She hates it but Scamp thought she looked beautiful 😉

Other very random eats:

smoothie and veg

Smoothie and brussels sprouts coated in nutritional yeast. I have no idea where that combo came from, but ‘twas good 😀

Our original plan was to go to Universal Studios today, but since it was cloudy and we couldn’t tell if it was going to rain on us, we went to another theme park.

winter garnde

That would be the Winter Garden Shopping Center.

Bonus: The had a World Market! 😀

We’re off to dinner and then maybe to a movie?

Have a fabulous night <3



Today’s workout jam: “Dear Agony” by Breaking Benjamin. AWESOME for hills 🙂

    Question for you about your HIIT training:

    I did my first (and only) HIIT training one day at Golden Gate Park where there are always LOTS of runners. I was sprinting all out, recovering, running balls to the wall, recovering…when I notice people are staring. I mean, I don’t look like a sprinter (I am ~10 lbs overweight), and I got some pretty weird looks at my all out exertion.

    Do people look at you weird, too?

    • Fitnessista on April 9, 2010 at 8:42 pm

      they totally look at me weird when i do hiit on the track! i just ignore them and try to tell myself that they’re shocked by how hardcore it looks, haha.

    I saw that trailer and nearly passed out.


    I would loooove to get some shopping in! In a few weeks hopefully I’ll have time!

  9. brittany on April 9, 2010 at 11:09 pm

    I used to live in Orlando (now tallahassee :/ ) and your trip is making me soooo homesick! My two favorite places are Millenia Mall and Winter Garden Village! I can’t wait to go home!!! I wish I was there so I could meet you 🙂

  10. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on April 9, 2010 at 11:46 pm

    World Market is the best for cool dish ware and other house accessories! I just got my mom HOOKED on it. 🙂 Glad you’re having a great time beside some minor setbacks

  11. Kathleen on April 9, 2010 at 11:49 pm

  12. Amanda on April 10, 2010 at 12:26 am

    My Bella looks a lot like that and she has that dress too! 🙂

  13. Jo on April 10, 2010 at 4:17 am

    Oh my god, I am so excited for SATC 2! Can’t believe Aiden is back – aaarrrggghhhhh!

  14. Kristin (Cook, Bake and Nibble) on April 10, 2010 at 8:06 am

  16. Nicole @ Making Good Choices on April 10, 2010 at 9:02 am

    AH I can’t wait to see SATC, I think we should all get a pair of Manolos to celebrate 🙂

  17. Paige (RAN) on April 10, 2010 at 9:56 am

    OMG THANK YOU for posting that trailer! I got CHILLS! I’m so, so, so excited for SATC 2. Glad you got to go to a World Market:)

  18. Ana (AnActive Adventure) on April 10, 2010 at 10:17 am

    I went to the movies yesterday and saw the preview!!! I can’t for SATC 2 COME!!!!

  19. elliebelle on April 10, 2010 at 11:20 am

    I just almost had a heart attack when watching the SATC trailer. AIDEN???? Oh my, heart be still….
    I hadn’t seen the long trailer yet. Wow…
    Ok. Thank you for that!

  20. Ashley on April 10, 2010 at 11:59 am

    I LOVE World Market! They closed the one nearest to me 🙁

  21. Jennie {in Wonderland} on April 10, 2010 at 12:25 pm

    If she cheats on Big, I’m breaking up with Carrie :0

    Still, awesome trailer!

    • Fitnessista on April 10, 2010 at 4:05 pm

      for real! i just love big too much 🙂

      • Jennie {in Wonderland} on April 10, 2010 at 7:49 pm

        Me too. And can I just say that I love the way Charlotte is looking at her in that scene, like, “Honey, you’re MARRIED. Married. To BIG.” I mean, this is what Carrie has always wanted! She left Aidan for him for goodness sakes!

        I might be a bit too invested. 😉

  22. Mary @ What's Cookin' with Mary on April 10, 2010 at 1:26 pm

    AWWW I love Bella’s dress ! 😀

  23. Katherine on April 10, 2010 at 2:01 pm

    funny story- once I sold a Sex and the City DVD to a friend of mine and when she wrote her check, in the ‘FOR’ line, all she put was “sex.” …I was happy to show that one to the banker

  24. Teri [a foodie stays fit] on April 10, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    I’m so excited for that movie!

    • Fitnessista on April 11, 2010 at 9:01 am

      me tooooooo

  25. Lily on April 11, 2010 at 1:03 am

    Do you mix your nutritional yeast with anything? I have been putting it directly on pasta, salad, etc. and it’s a lil’ dusty to inhale without anything on top =/

    • Fitnessista on April 11, 2010 at 9:01 am

      for the pasta, i’ll put in a little of the cooking liquid and stir it around. it’s definitely a little dusty when i put it on eggs and salad, but that’s because i use a lot 🙂

  26. Heather on April 11, 2010 at 9:39 am

    Gina, I think we’re destine to be BFFs. I have been LOVING brussels smothered in nutritional yeast for the past 2 WEEKS! Don’t know why…but ya know…ya gotta roll with it. right?! [;

    • Fitnessista on April 11, 2010 at 9:43 am

      haha that is so funny! it was SO GOOD though 🙂

  27. April on April 11, 2010 at 12:22 pm

    Ahhh I can’t wait for SATC2!!!!
