Birthday Nomad

Hey guys! How’s your night going??

I’m HOME!

whole foods

Heh heh. Of course I made a little stop on the way Winking smile

Thank you so much for all of the beautiful comments, tweets, Facebook posts and sweet birthday wishes! I appreciate it so much <3

Thank you to my friends who celebrated my birthday with me last night! I loved seeing everyone <3

This morning, I was moving a little slowly after a night in Valdizzy with dinner, Funfetti cupcakes and chilled white wine, and girl chat until the wee hours of the morning, so Jeni and I went to Two Friends for breakfast before I hit the road back to Orlando.

I had a veggie omelet (no cheese)

omelet

Coffee + a sweet potato biscuit that I wasn’t going to eat but then did (I love gluten. And it’s my birthday. haha)

MY OTHER VIDEOS

The drive back to Orlando was pretty uneventful- I listened to the rest of “A New Earth” (highly recommend it!) and pulled into a rest stop for a chat with homeopathic doc. Good news! I can eat fruit again Smile I really look forward to our phone appointments- he answers all of my questions and is so patient in explaining everything. He also said I can eat Stevia everyday, twice a day on Sunday if I want to. Good stuff Smile

When I got to my aunt’s, I was greeted by my favorite downward-facing Bella:

+ a little Yorkie tail Smile

+ gifts from a certain someone who still made his presence known today

gifts

I’m waiting to get back from work to open the gifts and read the cards Winking smile

Yes, I’m at work tonight but it aint no thang. I got in my celebrating last night Smile Also… I’m going to NEW YORK ON SUNDAY!!! More on that to come.

Legendary dinner:

bowl

A macrobiotic bowl (arugula, sea vegetables –dulse, arame, wakame-, sauerkraut, tamari-soaked almonds, cashew sauce)- I’ll be sure to post a how-to next time I make it, which will be soon!

with my favorite vegan miso slaw from the hot bar:

I’m back to work, but I’ll see ya in the morning!

What are you up to this weekend?? Have some dessert for me, mmm k? Smile

xoxo,

Gina

    Happy Birthday, Gina!! 🙂 I hope it has been amazing. And I really hope you show us what’s in the packages because I am super curious, haha

  5. Lindsay on November 12, 2010 at 9:03 pm

    Happy Birthday Gina 🙂 I hope it continues to be amazing!!! I’m eating desert right now….peppermint bark from TJ’s ahhh, i <3 it! it's seriously amazing.

  6. Courtney on November 12, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    If you had to choose only one to go to would it be 306 North or Two Friends? I prefer 306 North. I had an awful experience at Two Friend about 2 months ago. The food was awful, the waitress was rude, and our table was never cleaned even after I said something.

    • Fitnessista on November 13, 2010 at 9:00 am

      really??
      i prefer 306 too, but love them both. the multigrain bread at 306 is what makes that one a winner haha 🙂
      the tilapia at two friends is AMAZING and randy always makes me a special salad with thing i want on it (goat cheese and veg!)

  7. Felicia (A taste of Health with Balance) on November 12, 2010 at 9:41 pm

    NY!! My neck of the woods, yay! Can’t wait to hear where you’ll be going 🙂

  8. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on November 12, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    Glad you had a great birthday girl! 😉

  9. Anna S. on November 12, 2010 at 10:00 pm

    Happy Birthday!! What a cute dog.

  10. gina g on November 12, 2010 at 10:00 pm

  11. Mary @ Bites and Bliss on November 12, 2010 at 10:13 pm

    Glad you had such a happy birthday!! And lucky you for getting to go to NYC in a few days!!!

  12. Steph on November 12, 2010 at 10:58 pm

    Happy Happy Birthday lady! Looking forward to hearing about the NY trip. Hope you had a great weekend!!

  13. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on November 12, 2010 at 10:58 pm

    “dinner, Funfetti cupcakes and chilled white wine, and girl chat until the wee hours of the morning”–

    THAT sounds like the perfect way to spend a bday (of course, having the Pilot there would be the best present of all) but as a 2nd fiddle, what you did sounds great 🙂

    Safe travels back to Orlando and Happy Bday!!!!!!!!!!

    🙂

  14. Maria on November 12, 2010 at 11:11 pm

    Happy Birthday Gina!!! I hope you had a good b-day! November birthdays are the best! hehe! Mine was a few days ago. I was wondering if you could e-mail me (I can’t find your e-mail). I started the South beach diet on Monday and so far it’s going well, I just have a few questions about it and you’re the only person that I “know” did it. Thanks! My email address is abrewcitybride.blogspot.com

  15. Allison @ Food For Healing on November 12, 2010 at 11:49 pm

    happy birthday again Gina! have a great weekend, not just one day for the birthday

  16. Jean on November 12, 2010 at 11:56 pm

    I am considering purchasing the Turbofire dvds and was wondering if you could do a review of the program since it’s no longer new to you. I am taking a break from running and have done 30 day Shred but I’m looking for some new cardio for a change and to bust through a plateau. Your thoughts on Turbofire would be greatly appreciated.

    • Fitnessista on November 13, 2010 at 8:58 am

      if you love kickboxing and dancing, and have no joint or knee injuries, i say go for it! it’s my fave beachbody program 🙂

  17. Katalina on November 13, 2010 at 12:09 am

    New York???? You got a book deal??!!! I really hope so! 😉 can u do a blogger meeting in NY! I would really love to meet you!! Thanks!

  18. Suzanne on November 13, 2010 at 12:35 am

    Blast, better late than never……..

    Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaappy Birthday!!!

    I haven’t been commenting, but I have been checking in from time to time!

    I wish you all the best, and I’m sorry the Pilot isn’t there to administer your birthday spankings, heh heh.

    • Fitnessista on November 13, 2010 at 8:57 am

      LOL!
      i missed you! hope all is well 🙂

  19. Rebecca on November 13, 2010 at 12:43 am

    Hey!!

    I’m not a blogger but I read like it’s my job :). I live in NYC (Union Sq) so when you’re in town if you do a blogger meet-up for non-bloggers that would be aammmaaazinngggg!! :).

    Happy birthday!!

    • Fitnessista on November 13, 2010 at 8:57 am

      i’ll definitely try to plan a meet up! i’m only there for one night though :/

  20. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on November 13, 2010 at 1:29 am

    I’m excited to find out why you are going to New York. I can’t believe you haven’t eaten fruit in a week. I might die.

  21. Katie on November 13, 2010 at 6:48 am

    Welcome home and I’m excited to find out why you’re going to New York! 🙂

    My boyfriend and I went to dinner last night at a local Turkish restaurant and had kunefe for dessert. (shredded phyllo dough stuffed with goat cheese). Oh my gosh! It was foodgasmic!!!!! (and the best way to start the weekend).

    • Fitnessista on November 13, 2010 at 8:57 am

      that sounds AMAZING

  22. Karen on November 13, 2010 at 8:06 am

    Happy Birthday fellow Scorpio! Mine is on Sunday. I hope you had a lovely time. I love your Orlando area pics – my best friend lives there and seeing those makes me think of her. Have a great one!

    • Fitnessista on November 13, 2010 at 8:56 am

  24. Emily @ For Sweets Sake on November 13, 2010 at 8:26 am

    Happy Birthday! A little late 🙂 We got news yesterday that you’ll appreciate. We’re supposed to pcs in the spring. We’ve been told for a month now that “any day” we’ll find out where we’re going. Well, we did yesterday. We’re going nowhere too! We got bumped to the summer cycle so now more waiting! haha go figure! 😛

    • Fitnessista on November 13, 2010 at 8:56 am

      ahhhHH! so crazy!

  25. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on November 13, 2010 at 8:36 am

    Yay for being able to eat fruit again! I don’t know how you were able to go without it – I don’t think I could survive a day without fruit! 😛

    Aww those gifts from the Pilot made me smile. I hope the rest of your birthday was amazing!

  26. CaSaundra on November 13, 2010 at 8:50 am
