Come Shop With Me…

Letโ€™s shop, letโ€™s shop awayyyyyyy ๐Ÿ˜€

Hi everyone ๐Ÿ˜€

Iโ€™ve joined the OpenSky party!

I figured it would be an awesome way to share all of my favorite products with you, since Iโ€™m often asked which brands I buy and where I get them. This way, you can get my faves all in once place! Baller.


My dehydrator:


Foam roller:


Beloved chia seeds:


SPIRALIZER! (I was so stoked that they had this one!)


Favorite skin care products

juice beauty

And so much more ๐Ÿ˜€ Itโ€™s really an amazing creation.

The thing is, my OpenSky store isnโ€™t going to be a hodge podge of random stuff. Every single item in my store is something that I currently own, have used often and LOVE.

Iโ€™ll keep working on adding more goodies and stay tuned for an awesome promo that the OpenSky peeps have generously offered Fitnessista readers โ€“ this will go down on Wednesday!!!

Happy Shopping and please let me know if thereโ€™s anything you see on the bloggy that youโ€™d like to find in my store (Iโ€™ve already requested Sun Warrior, maca and spirulina).


This morning, I munched the bfast cookie that we made the video for last night.

bfast cookie

I think it tasted better because it took so long to make it ๐Ÿ˜‰

Next, I hit up the gym for the best weights sesh Iโ€™ve had in a LONG time.

Since last week was so chill, I did a whole-body workout and some cardio. I moved quickly in between sets and did the entire workout in 30 minutes. Here it is for yaโ€™ll:

Whole Body Toning Sesh (weights 30 minutes; cardio 30 minutes)

1. Cardio warm-up (15 minutes, moderate intensity)

2. Squat and curl

3. Supine Chest Fly with Reverse crunch

4. Stability ball hamstring curl

5. Unilateral Overhead press

6. Bent over row and kickback (I did both arms at once, feet hips width apart and knees slightly bent)

7.Back extension

8. Decline Twisting crunch

9. 15 minutes cardio of choice (I did steady on the elliptical since I have Zumba tonightโ€”add in some sprint or hill intervals to kick things up)

10. Stretch

Iโ€™m back at the casa and am about to tackle the disaster thatโ€™s my car. Iโ€™m one of those people who likes the house to be spotless, but my car is a hot mess. What can I say? I live out of it ๐Ÿ™‚

See ya tonight <3


Something to do: Hit up OpenSky ๐Ÿ˜€ Lotโ€™s of fun fitness, foodie and kitchen goodies.. maybe even something PG-13 (gasp!)

    Awesome! I partnered with OpenSky, too – it’ll be fun to work with you there!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Jessica @ How Sweet on March 15, 2010 at 12:52 pm

    I want a spiralizer so bad! Now I gotta get one! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Molly @fuelherup on March 15, 2010 at 12:52 pm

    OpenSky is so cool!
    I have got to get my hands on a spiralizer! (and a dehydrator…and a Vitamix…etc. etc. etc.)

  4. Heather (Heather's Dish) on March 15, 2010 at 12:52 pm

    i’d love to partner with open sky someday! i’ll definitely be looking for that spiralizer there ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Stephanie on March 15, 2010 at 12:58 pm

    Congratulations on the OpenSky shop! I know it will be a success, since I have definitely taken much advice from your site on certain things to buy ๐Ÿ˜€

    P.S. I was totally the same way with my old car (before I totalled it), it was a disaster yet my house is usually spotless haha. The new car is a different story though… those BMW payments keep me in car-cleanliness-check haha ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Jaime on March 15, 2010 at 1:00 pm

    Ohhhhh, thanks for this workout. Your timing is always impecable! I had a slack week and need to get caught up in a speedy fashion. What would I ever do without you as my virtual trainer? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Spiralizer has been on my Xmas list for two years.

    • Fitnessista on March 15, 2010 at 1:01 pm

      haha i’m so glad it was good timing and i’m happy to be your virtual trainer ๐Ÿ™‚
      what are you waiting for, little lady? the price is not shabby at all! everyone needs a spiralizer in their life

  7. sarah on March 15, 2010 at 1:03 pm

    Love the store!!!

    I’ve come to be obsessed with the bosu. Sometimes I end up at a gym that doesn’t have one (traveling) and it makes me grouchy!

  8. M on March 15, 2010 at 1:10 pm

    Ohhh yippy yay for shopping ๐Ÿ™‚ We have the position book too…. totally agree it’s a fun one!!

  9. Nicci on March 15, 2010 at 1:15 pm

    I really need to get a spiralizer!! I was just gifted a dehydrator but haven’t used it yet.

  10. Ashley L on March 15, 2010 at 1:19 pm

    There better be millet bread in that store!

    • Fitnessista on March 15, 2010 at 1:51 pm

      hahah i wish! they don’t have fresh stuff :/

  11. Ellen on March 15, 2010 at 1:25 pm

    Ok, rookie question…what are foam rollers good for? Easing sore muscles, getting blood flowing, etc?? Do you ever incorporate man makers into your workouts? I recently discovered them (always behind!) and have been incorporating them into my workouts. They’re awesome full-body workouts!

    • Fitnessista on March 15, 2010 at 1:51 pm

      i’ve tried them before- those babies are INTENSE!
      foam rollers are amazing for rubbing out tight muscles, especially for my IT band, hammies, quads and shoulders. you don’t realize how much you need one until you try it!

  12. Jenny on March 15, 2010 at 1:26 pm

    Loveeeeee juice beauty! And that looks like a great workout…I’m gonna have to try it!

    Thanks for the retweet yesterday lady, made me smile real big:)

    • Fitnessista on March 15, 2010 at 1:49 pm

      no prob! xoxo

  13. kate on March 15, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    woo hoo for opensky – cant wait to check out your fave picks!

  14. Mara @ What's For Dinner? on March 15, 2010 at 1:45 pm

    YAY for OpenSky! I’m adding you to my “favorite shops” now ๐Ÿ™‚ I wish I could afford the dehydrator…

  15. Kelly on March 15, 2010 at 1:52 pm

    Yes, perfect timing! Since running won’t be on my agenda for awhile, lots of strength training will!

  16. Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg on March 15, 2010 at 1:56 pm

    Oh, how I long for a dehydrator. I’ll just have to stay happy with my spiralizer for now ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. on March 15, 2010 at 2:07 pm

    thanks for sharing your favorites through open sky-how fun!

  18. Jesi on March 15, 2010 at 2:10 pm

    Love the OpenSky shop!!

    What are your thoughts on pregnant woman lifting weights?

    • Fitnessista on March 15, 2010 at 2:37 pm

      i think it’s great if pregnant women lift weights if they lift light weights and it’s something they’ve been doing for a while.. when you’re pregnant, it’s not the time to start a new fitness routine

  19. Tracey on March 15, 2010 at 2:23 pm

    I would really like to see a Zumba video you would recommend in your OpenSky store. I’ve been wanting to try it out in the comfort of my own home before I venture out to a class.

  20. La on March 15, 2010 at 2:29 pm

    Ughhhhhhhhh so so so tempting. I *need* my own foam rollerrrrr….I also *need* to pay my electric bill. Decisions.

    • Fitnessista on March 15, 2010 at 2:36 pm

      hahah! (wait til wednesday to get the foam roller) ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Lindsay on March 15, 2010 at 2:32 pm

    Okay now you gotta get Sun Warrior on your open sky and maybe mesquite too!!

  22. Lauren @ eater not a runner on March 15, 2010 at 3:13 pm

    I should probably have a foam roller myself…..I’ve never used one!

  23. Carrie on March 15, 2010 at 3:19 pm

    Ooh, I’d love to see some goji berries added to the store!

    Also, what’s the Goddess dressing you always use and why do you love it so much? AND, why goat cheese?

    Thanks! I need new grocery store items. I’m getting really burnt out on my regular staples.

    • Fitnessista on March 15, 2010 at 3:28 pm

      yes, that’s a great idea!
      i use the annie’s goddess dressing or trader joe’s goddess- it’s SO delicious..creamy, tangy, amazing.
      as far as the goat cheese goes, i prefer goat over cow dairy because it’s easier to digest and is less mucus forming (gross, but true) ๐Ÿ˜€

  24. Alicia on March 15, 2010 at 3:31 pm

    Congrats! Looking forward to shopping ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Julie on March 15, 2010 at 3:32 pm

    dang, I wish I had money right now to buy chia seeds! Yours are way cheaper than whole foods.

    • Fitnessista on March 15, 2010 at 3:34 pm

      seriously- i was very stoked when i saw all of the prices for these goodies!

  26. Hannah on March 15, 2010 at 4:12 pm

    Hey! How many reps and sets did you do for this particular session?

    • Fitnessista on March 15, 2010 at 9:31 pm

      it depended on what exercise i was doing, but for all of them i did 3 sets of 12-15 reps

  27. Kristin (Cook, Bake and Nibble) on March 15, 2010 at 4:17 pm

    Yay! I LOVE the idea of open sky!!


  28. Allison (Eat Clean Live Green) on March 15, 2010 at 4:33 pm

    I’m excited to check out your store – you use such fun stuff I wouldn’t think of to buy without a reccomendation ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Heather @ get healthy with Heather on March 15, 2010 at 4:59 pm

    Yay sweet opensky store! They have such a great idea. Awesome way to connect experts and buyers.

  30. Nicole, RD on March 15, 2010 at 5:16 pm

    PG-13, haha! I want a spiralizer so badly! I’m a wee bit obsessed with the currently!!

  31. LisaG on March 15, 2010 at 5:45 pm

    How bout any of your favorite workout dvds on opensky?

    • Fitnessista on March 15, 2010 at 9:29 pm

      ohhh good idea. i’ll have to see which ones they can order for me

  32. Baroque Diva on March 15, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    Yay! I’ve been wanting that spiralizer forever. Maybe now’s the time!

    • Fitnessista on March 15, 2010 at 9:28 pm

      it was destiny ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. Rachel on March 15, 2010 at 7:12 pm

    haha i love your response about the juicer…i like this product because it’s hardcore. haha so cute!

    • Fitnessista on March 15, 2010 at 9:28 pm

      it IS hardcore ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. Mais @ runrantrealize on March 15, 2010 at 7:25 pm

    Your shop so sounds awesome! I too love Juice Beauty products, so I’m excited to see which ones you use.

    Haha, messy cars. My car is a complete disaster. My boyfriend keeps our house super clean, which I love, and I always argue that my car is where all my messiness can express itself. Thanks for reminding me I need to clean it :).

  35. Antonia on March 15, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    Sounds like a great workout! I usually only do a full body workout on a weekend when I have time to waste away at the gym because I like to do lots of exercises and not worry about having to rush somewhere afterwards. I love them though and they’re always so satisfying.

  36. Anna on March 15, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    This reminds me that I haven’t made a bfast cookie in a long time! Nice video. Why you so damn cute? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Fitnessista on March 15, 2010 at 9:28 pm

      thanks girl!

  37. Lauren on March 15, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    Have you always used the Excaliber? I really want to get a dehydrator. I’m starting to realize that you can’t make half of the raw recipes without one ๐Ÿ™ I’m a little apprehensive about spending so much on one though.

    • Fitnessista on March 15, 2010 at 9:47 pm

      yep, it’s the one i’ve used for the past year and a half. it’s my child, really.. i love that thing ๐Ÿ™‚

  38. Rhoni on March 15, 2010 at 10:23 pm

    I think you should add mesquite to your shop! I’ve been trying to figure out what and where to get some! Thanks.

  39. Laura J. (Health and Hotness) on March 15, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    I just checked out your OpenSky store. Love it!

    P.S. My hubby and I have the “PG-13” item as well! bahaha I had a good laugh when I saw that ๐Ÿ˜‰

  40. Kim on March 15, 2010 at 10:47 pm

    please put your millet bread on open sky (if possible)!!!

  41. Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman on March 15, 2010 at 11:25 pm

    I love Juice Beauty products, too. The green apple peal is amazing!

  42. Cheryl on March 16, 2010 at 7:33 am

    I wonder why no one has commented on your “pg 13” product. I say thanks for sharing Gina and couldn’t agree more haha. It’s also good exercise right ๐Ÿ˜‰

  43. Cindy on March 17, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    Would love love love it if you put your reusable glass straws in your Open Sky shop.

    • Fitnessista on March 17, 2010 at 4:01 pm

      ohhh that’s a great idea! i’ll see if they can supply them, that would be awesome
