Bubba is Back

Hey everyone! Happy Friday! Hope you have something fun planned for the weekend πŸ˜€

So, remember when the pilot’s Bubba Keg mysteriously disappeared while we were in the Bahamas?

Evita and her husband (The Engineer) were so kind to send a replacement Bubba Keg to the pilot πŸ™‚


How awesome is that?!

He’s such a happy kid πŸ˜€


(Tan, rugged, seksi, ridiculous)

Thank you again, Evita and The Engineer <3

Last night was pretty chill. I taught boot camp until late, and then came back to the casa for some roasted veggies:


Carrots, eggplant, zucchini, tomato, onion, Garlic Gold, olive oil, sea salt and oregano (saved the leftovers for my savory lunch crepe)

+ a 2 egg white stada with nutritional yeast and cayenne


and Chocolate Cherry Bomb protein ice cream for dessert πŸ˜€

ice cream


I had to call it an early night because I teach EARLY Friday bootcamp, and breakfast was waiting for me in the fridge when I woke up.

Breakfast cookie!

bfast cookie

-1/2 C oats
-1 T almond butter

-1/2 banana

-almond milk

-maca, cinnamon, goji berries, cacao nibs

-1/2 scoop Vanilla Sun Warrior

Here’s today’s boot camp workout:


Legs and Abs, and I added in some yoga and pilates at the end. It was pretty baller πŸ˜‰

I’m off to shower my stinky face and then head back to work.

See ya this afternoon with the crepe recipe πŸ˜‰



Something to do: Meet me back here on Monday for the most ridiculous OpenSky promo yet. I’ll give you a [big] hint on what the product is:

sun warrior

I almost cried tears of happiness when they told me the promo price πŸ™‚ Have a great day, guys!

    • Fitnessista on June 25, 2010 at 9:14 am

      hahah i’m the same way. the price kills me, but i’m happy to pay it because it’s SO GOOD. the promo price is insane though – i’ll definitely be stocking up

  5. Little Bookworm on June 25, 2010 at 9:26 am

    How come every single time I decide I decide I *really* need something, you have an opensky promo for it? Stop readign my mind! Gosh!!

    • Fitnessista on June 25, 2010 at 10:57 am

      hahaha i’m a shopping mind-reader πŸ˜‰

  8. Evita on June 25, 2010 at 9:35 am

    I am so glad that the Pilot enjoys his new Bubba Keg! It is the lease I/we could do since reading your blog is a part of my daily routine and you provide such great advice and info. Thank you so much for all that YOU do! πŸ™‚

  9. Sandra on June 25, 2010 at 9:36 am

    Well, maybe now I’ll have to finally try making smoothies πŸ™‚

  10. Amber on June 25, 2010 at 9:39 am

    Yay for the promo! My glass straws from the last promo have been a hit – the Golden Girls who live across the street from me both ordered some so that they can, and I quote, “drink their margaritas in style”. πŸ™‚

    I need to drive to take your bootcamp class – our gym’s bootcamp is not so hot *sigh*

  11. Jill on June 25, 2010 at 9:42 am

    Can’t wait to hear more about the promo!

  12. Robyn @ Frugal 'n' Fit! on June 25, 2010 at 9:47 am

    My hubby has a Bubba Keg too. It isn’t a summer barbecue without one!

  13. Rhea on June 25, 2010 at 9:59 am

    holy promo! i purchased a little tub of jarrow brown rice protein from whole foods last weekend and i don’t care for it at all πŸ™ so mealy and chalky. i would love to try sun warrior, i’ve heard so many glowing reviews!

  14. Jessica @ How Sweet on June 25, 2010 at 10:02 am

    That is so sweet! I need to get me a bubba keg. πŸ™‚

  15. Nicole @ Geek Turned Athlete on June 25, 2010 at 10:02 am

    Whahoo! Protein powder is so freaking expensive! I have the SunWarrior vanilla hemp, and I love it! A nice discount would be great!

  16. Annie D. @ Annie's Simple Life on June 25, 2010 at 10:05 am

    AWH that’s so nice that the big-ol mug was replaced!!!!! He’s a happy camper!!

  17. Brittany (A Healthy Slice of Life) on June 25, 2010 at 10:06 am

    Bubba kegs remind me of college! But we weren’t drinking h20 or green monsters out of ’em πŸ˜‰

  18. Heather (Heather's Dish) on June 25, 2010 at 10:07 am

    hurray for a sweet wife πŸ™‚ also, this is super random, but your handwriting is gorgeous!

    • Fitnessista on June 25, 2010 at 10:54 am

      hahah thank you- it looks a little chicken scratchy to me πŸ˜‰

  19. Jess on June 25, 2010 at 10:10 am

    OMG sooooo excited for the Sun Warrior promo to come!!! I’ve wanted to try it so bad, but just couldn’t bear to fork over the $$. Yiippee!!

  20. Andrea @ Sweet N Green on June 25, 2010 at 10:31 am

    Ahhh!!! I’m almost out of my Sun Warrior and didn’t think I’d be able to afford to buy more! Can’t wait to see what the promo is! πŸ™‚

  21. Jessica @ Jessica Balances on June 25, 2010 at 10:36 am

    Gina, I didn’t get a chance to comment yesterday – how exciting that you’re applying for the Bikram scholarship!!! I really hope you get it! πŸ™‚ Keep us updated!

  22. Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg on June 25, 2010 at 10:40 am

    Awww, glad he got a new one! Have a great weekend!

  23. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on June 25, 2010 at 10:42 am

    aww that’s so nice! glad the pilot’s got his bubba keg back!

  24. Stephanie on June 25, 2010 at 10:46 am

    So excited for the promo! The price tag is kind of ridiculous, especially since I can only seem to find the bags and they never last me. I can’t wait to stock up on a big ‘ol tub of it!! Yippee!

  25. Elizabeth on June 25, 2010 at 10:48 am

    Hey there Gina. Your dinner looks perfect. Can you tell me how long you roast the veggies and at what temp? Also, how do you use nutritional yeast on your eggs. I have tried it a couple of times with different foods and it was awful! Can you give me some advice? Thanks. Elizabeth

    • Fitnessista on June 25, 2010 at 10:52 am

      i roasted them at 375 for 20 minutes- they were perfect
      try 1/2 T of nutritional yeast on an egg. it tastes really good πŸ™‚

  26. Ellen on June 25, 2010 at 10:59 am

    Those veggies look so good! I tend to crave more veggies and fruit in the summer, but also ice cream, which is always my downfall. I’ve graduated to Italian ices though, which is a bit better. But your Cherry Bomb protein ice cream looks pretty tasty…do you ever miss the “real thing” though?


    • Fitnessista on June 25, 2010 at 11:06 am

      not at all. i miss fro yo and gelato, but will enjoy some when we’re in orlando or tucson πŸ™‚

  27. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on June 25, 2010 at 11:05 am

    Look at how happy the pilot is! It’s the little things right? πŸ™‚

  28. Laura J. on June 25, 2010 at 11:10 am

    Love your dinner! I’m making veggie omelets tonight and roasted veggies will be the perfect side πŸ™‚

    You’re so cute when you describe your hubby, haha πŸ™‚ It’s obvious you guys adore each other!

    • Fitnessista on June 25, 2010 at 12:01 pm

      yes, we are kind of in love… a little πŸ˜‰

  29. Mary @ What's Cookin' with Mary on June 25, 2010 at 11:11 am

    oooooooooooooh a sunwarrior promo ?! YAYAYAYA πŸ˜€

  30. Maya on June 25, 2010 at 11:14 am

    Crazy! I was just wondering yesterday how sun warrior compares to the usual brand of protein powder that I use. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to pay full price without trying it first. This promo is coming at the perfect time!

  31. LisaG on June 25, 2010 at 11:14 am

    Yea for the promo! Where did u get the pilots original bubba? I can’t find them. My daughter wanted one for soccer camp.

    • Fitnessista on June 25, 2010 at 12:01 pm

      they have them at target in the automobile section (weird, i know) πŸ™‚

  32. Lindsey @ Foodie on the Rocks on June 25, 2010 at 11:14 am

    awwwww jeez. better alert my credit card company…

  33. Lisa on June 25, 2010 at 11:57 am

    Yay! Excited for the promo. I was actually just going to ask you about Sun Warrior protein. How does it taste in comparison to other rice proteins? I’ve tried some rice proteins, and they’re SO unpalatable!

    • Fitnessista on June 25, 2010 at 12:00 pm

      it’s smooth and amazing πŸ™‚ by far, the best rice protein i’ve tried

  34. Madison on June 25, 2010 at 1:54 pm

    I’m excited, I’ve been wanting to try that stuff.

  35. stephanie on June 26, 2010 at 12:21 am

    I don’t see the lemon vinagrette in opensky. Am I missing it?

    • Fitnessista on June 26, 2010 at 8:19 am

      i haven’t added it yet- will do so this weekend

  36. Jenna on June 26, 2010 at 1:46 am

    First of all, I was very depressed today because my laptop was being quite mean and would not let me view your blog today! It said something about how it was restricted..like woahh Gina girl, what’re you postin!?! haha, jokee. but i’m glad it finally worked. πŸ™‚
    now, back to the blog! yayy for the pilot & his Bubba Keg! he looks very happy, haha. & i am PUMPEDD for this promo! I definately need some new protein powder. You should check out Boku protein powder. It’s brown rice protein, all organic, and just a few ingredients. Oh, and theres like 26g’s of protein per scoop! Holla!! <3

    • Fitnessista on June 26, 2010 at 8:20 am

      yes sorry about that! my data center was having issues, i wasn’t posting anything restrictive πŸ™‚

  37. Teri [a foodie stays fit] on June 26, 2010 at 7:17 am

    Can’t WAIT for the Open Sky promo!!

  38. Katherine on June 26, 2010 at 7:18 am

    Hey fitnessista- I may be imagining things but is there an interval program on the bike you may have mentioned a while ago that someone else had created. It was like an insane calorie burning thing… I can’t remember much else about it haha sorry; does it ring a bell at all?

    • Fitnessista on June 26, 2010 at 8:19 am

      heather eats almond butter i think has mentioned this- are you thinking of tabata intervals?

  39. m on June 26, 2010 at 7:35 am

    I just adore the way you and the pilot are so in love — every single time you post a picture of him, you comment on how gorgeous he is. So true!

  40. Vickie on June 26, 2010 at 9:17 pm

    Gasp! Is that what I think your holding?? I can…not…wait til monday!

    • Fitnessista on June 26, 2010 at 9:27 pm

      YES! this promo is going to be ridiculous πŸ™‚

  41. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on June 27, 2010 at 10:16 pm

    I love how you are SO attracted to your husband. I really hope to be like that with my future one… just gotta find him now πŸ˜‰
