Bagels for two + Fit Friday

Hi friends! Happy Friday! Hope you’re having a wonderful morning <3

First things first, the winner of the macaroons for donating to Tonya’s cause:


Claire! Please send me your address to fitnessista at gmail dot com and which flavor roons you’d like (blonde, chocolate, mocha, Meyer-lemon lavender, chocolate-almond butter) and I’ll get them on the way to you next week 🙂

This morning, we had to drop the Pilot’s rental car off (I think I convinced him that we should just get him a car since the house is going to take a while to close), and I took him to work for a little while.

Easy portable breakfast:


Cinnamon-raisin for him, Udi’s gluten-free for me

Whipped cream cheese for him, goat cream cheese for me

cream cheese

The only difference between the bagels is that mine mysteriously disappeared before we got to the car 😉

I have a few things to do today + a doctors appointment and fun date with the Pilot. So excited – I’ll see ya this afternoon with the deets.

Have a fantastical Friday <3



Show Me Your Fit: Here are some of the entries I received this week! So fun and inspirational to see all of the different types of fitness you all do 🙂 Send any fit photos my way: fitnessista at gmail dot com *Because of the volume of amazing photos I receive, I can’t post all of them, but try to include a variety <3

Jessica: It’s right after finishing my first half marathon three weeks ago. My body proved how strong I really am that day!


Courtney: This past Saturday, I completed my very first 10K race. It was the longest distance I had ever attempted to run, and I finished in just over one hour. Who knew?!?


Kali rocking out some pull-ups!

Show me your fit

Lindsay: Climbing mountains, especially 14ers (mountains over 14,000 ft in elevation) in my beloved home state of Colorado, makes me feel exquisitely alive. Here, I climbed Mt. Sneffels, a 14er in the southern part of Colorado, for my 21st birthday!


Samantha: Yoga on Dadi Beach, which is on Naval Base Guam.

  3. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on June 3, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    That is such a great weekend quote!! I can’t wait to hear all about your exciting date with the Pilot. Might it involve a restaurant and a piece of grilled salmon? 😉 Have a great afternoon Gina!

    • Fitnessista on June 3, 2011 at 1:15 pm

      it definitely involves a restaurant- one of my all-time faves!

  4. kate on June 3, 2011 at 1:18 pm

  5. Chloe (South Beach Girl) on June 3, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    Mmmm….goat cheese + bagel.

    These Fit girls are motivating me to do some fitness-related activities this weekend. I’m thinking a hike since it’s supposed to be nice and warm this weekend 🙂

  6. Jen on June 3, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    I haven’t had a bagel in so long! And I’m loving the pictures of everyone doing what they love to do 🙂

  12. Sunday Baker on June 3, 2011 at 2:43 pm

    Love the fit photos. Kudos to the girl doing the pull-ups, something I have a hard time with. I’m working on the stronger arms though. Have a great weekend!

  13. Claire @ Live and Love to Eat on June 3, 2011 at 2:45 pm

    Is it possible for you to make my ENTIRE weekend when it’s only 2:45 on Friday? Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    • Fitnessista on June 3, 2011 at 8:24 pm


  14. Holly @ The Runny Egg on June 3, 2011 at 3:17 pm

    OK Kali doing the pullups is an awesome picture!

    I love bagels — they seem to disappear in our house too!

  15. Paige @Running Around Normal on June 3, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    I’ve been hearing good things about those bagels! I always see them in Kroger. I think I’ll pick up a bag next time:)

  16. Courtney @ Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life on June 3, 2011 at 3:37 pm

    Awww, thanks for including me on Fit Friday!! 🙂

  17. Amanda Jewell on June 3, 2011 at 4:02 pm

    Love that quote at the end there; I have to say… I agree 🙂

  18. char @ char on a mission on June 3, 2011 at 4:56 pm

    You’ve mentioned this goat’s milk cream cheese a lot recently and now I’m totally intrigued to try it! Especially since I love goat’s cheese!

  19. jen @ taste life on June 3, 2011 at 5:17 pm

    Oh my gosh, I’m so impressed by Kali with the pull ups! I soooo hope to do one some day. I try and I try, but so far, nada!

  20. M on June 3, 2011 at 5:21 pm

    Ok, this is off subject but I still think you’re preggo. I really hope this is your announcement next week. Sorry if I’m being annoying! I just have this *feeling*… Anyway, enjoy your weekend and yayyyy for date night 🙂 Same for us too!

    • Fitnessista on June 3, 2011 at 8:23 pm

      not annoying at all 🙂

  21. Gina (Yogattude) on June 3, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    I can’t get over how delish goat cream cheese is! I once put it on a flatbread with fig jam overtop…no words;)

    I also have a fun date planned with the boy tonight! Dinner at one of our favorite Seattle seafood restaurants! I just love when Alaskan halibut and Copper River sockeye salmon are in season…best foodie time of the year is now!

  22. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on June 3, 2011 at 5:59 pm

    I love the pics…the pullups and the yogi and just everyone is looking amazing!!!!!!

    “I think I convinced him that we should just get him a car since the house is going to take a while to close” — DON’T!!

    A friend of mine thought her loan was done, everything was a formality, she had signed paperwork, and was two days away from the legal closing of the house, she leased a car from a dealership, the mortgage co. just RANDOMLY ran her credit one more time…and ended up not funding her loan. i.e. she did NOT get her house b/c of her car. Not saying this could happen to you, but omg she was….devastated. I watched her go thru the almost-homeowner thing and then….not. Seriously, she was depressed for over a year about it all. As I would have been too!

    Sorry to be all Nervous Nelly for you 🙂

    • Fitnessista on June 3, 2011 at 8:23 pm

      we were nervous about it too but since we’re going to pay cash for it and not have payments or a loan, the bank said we should be ok
      we’re still waiting it out, though
      sharing a car has been a little rough haha

      • Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on June 3, 2011 at 10:19 pm

        Ok got it on the paying cash and not taking out a loan…totally diff story and on the down low. Gotcha.

        And yes..SCott and I shared a car for FIVE YEARS (thus, we had a nice savings/down payment for our house..but yeah girl, I feel your pain..major planning is required to pull off a shared car with two working people!)

  23. Brittany (A Healthy Slice of Life) on June 3, 2011 at 6:07 pm

    Oh! I’ve never seen goat cream cheese, but I’ll bet it’s delicious!! Can’t wait to try it 🙂

  24. Amanda @ The Beauty Notebooks on June 3, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    Your Udi’s bagel looks delish! I’d love to track some down. I was also at my local indoor farmer’s market today, and there was a stand just dedicated to goat cheese! I instantly thought of you!

  25. skinnyrunner on June 3, 2011 at 6:31 pm

    so im so late its uncool, but i love the new look of the blog! love it.

    • Fitnessista on June 3, 2011 at 8:22 pm

      thank you! 🙂

  26. kaila @ healthy helper! on June 3, 2011 at 6:48 pm

    I love those fit pics! Especially of the one in Guam! SO beautiful!

    • Fitnessista on June 3, 2011 at 8:22 pm

      totally stunning

  27. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on June 3, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    Love this batch of pictures! They make me want to kick my butt into gear and get back into a steady workout routine! 😀

  28. lindsey on June 3, 2011 at 9:24 pm

    Love your Show Me Your Fit series! One of these days, I’ll have enough guts to submit a picture. 🙂
