Email me your size and color preferences (fitnessista at gmail dot com)

Thank you to everyone for entering! Stay tuned for Summer Shape Up giveaways starting next week!


HOLY Shape Up!!! I am so thrilled that you’re as excited as I am for the challenge. Thank you so much to those of you who have already signed up! Keep an eye on your email for the password + all of the Shape Up details. You have until Friday to sign up if you haven’t already.

Along with the fun adventures of this past weekend, I also had the chance to do some cooking. I made some lactation oaties for a friend who just had twins:

Oatie dough  1 of 1 2

(I told the Pilot he would lactate if he ate any)

sautéed BBQ zucchini to go with lunch one afternoon

Zucchini  1 of 1 4

and some Paleo bread for us to enjoy this week.

Paleo bread  1 of 1 4

The bread is an almost-weekly staple; I especially love it with a smear of sunflower seed butter and drizzle of honey.

In addition to the cooking, I had a few minutes to make a sell/donate stash from our closet.

Closet  1 of 1

I took some clothes to Buffalo Exchange to sell and I have to say, it’s a special kind of judgment when the sales associate digs through your clothing, deciding what they’ll keep. It’s an extra special type of judgment when said clothing buyer hardly takes anything from your pile, but has a heyday with the neon Forever 21 garb from the pile next to yours. I felt very old.

Usually when I go through my closet to donate and sell items, I have a pretty good idea of what I need to take to Goodwill, and what Buffalo might take. This time I was totally off!

It’s pretty easy for me to take clothes I’ll never wear again to make room in the closet, but the tried, true (and grungy) items tend to have a longer shelf life.

I have a few t-shirts that I love to lounge around in:

my Tiger Sharks shirt, any of the Pilot’s graphic tees (I especially love sleeping in them when he’s deployed), a few race/gym shirts


(still have that shirt, 3 years later)

and anything with soft Pima cotton.

Needless to say, I was pretty stoked when Reebok sent two super comfy tees this month as part of our partnership.

Tee  1 of 1

They fit well, have a nice stretch to them, and the luxurious fabric made me want to cry tears of joy. I can tell I’ll be wearing them a lot!

I loved the shirts so much that I asked Reebok if they’d like to do a giveaway and was so excited when they said yes.

One lucky winner will receive one of each of these shirts:

Tee  1 of 1 2

(the short sleeve V neck and love fit tee)

All you have to do is leave a comment with your favorite T-shirt, or something in your closet you’ll always keep.

I’ll pick a random winner tomorrow (Wednesday, 5/29) at midnight EST.

Enjoy your night!

    i can’t bear to part with some of my cheesy souvenir tees that i bought while studying abroad in rome during college! i’m hoping to someday turn those shirts into a quilt 🙂

  2. Tasha on May 29, 2013 at 8:57 pm

    The Chargers jersey my mom used to always wear when she was still alive. I wear it during football season and will never get rid of it.

  3. Sam on May 29, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    My first marathon shirt, have too many sentiments attached to it..

  4. Raychel on May 29, 2013 at 9:30 pm

    Ohh man those look so comfy! I LOVE t-shirts. One that I will never get rid of is my NY Yankees Jeter shirt. I was wearing it when my husband first saw me and it started our flirtatious fights about baseball (he is a red sox fan). It’s very sentimental to me 🙂

  5. Linda on May 29, 2013 at 9:30 pm

    A college sweatshirt my sister got me when I graduated high school, you know, so I’d be ready. It’s way too big now, but I love to wear around the house.

  6. Jessica on May 29, 2013 at 9:32 pm

    I have a pair of PJ pants my husband calls my “genie pants” because they are huge and flow-y and just awesome 🙂 and I’ll never get rid of them!

  7. Holly on May 29, 2013 at 9:35 pm

    My absolute favorite t-shirt that I will never part with is my Pat Benatar concert t-shirt from 1988. She’s the one who got me through my high school years.

  8. Caitlyn on May 29, 2013 at 9:35 pm

    LOVE both of these shirts. I am always looking for cute workout gear! I would have to say shoes are something I cannot get rid of. Always thinking of ways to keep them for future use!

  9. laura on May 29, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    i have a wrap around double sided skirt that my mom bought for me at a vintage dress shop when i was in high school. ill keep it forever because: i get compliments every time i wear it, it was pricey so i want to make sure i get my mother’s money’s worth and damnit, it’s a fabulous skirt.

  10. Carli on May 29, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    My favorite T-shirt is a Washington University T-shirt. I did not go to school there but got it while I was running a recruiting booth for the company I was working for at the time. On the weekends you’ll likely see me lounging in it.

  11. Alexandra on May 29, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    I’ll never get rid of my old tshirts we’d get for wearing at our schools football games. I went to university of Florida and a sucker for anything gator 🙂

  12. Kristin on May 29, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    I think I’ll always keep my Halloween pirate costume because that thing was so darn expensive haha

  13. Tammy on May 29, 2013 at 9:44 pm

    I just ran my first 5k this weekend and don’t think I will ever get rid of that Tshirt. I also love CrossFit and have been eyeing up the Love Fitness t!

  14. Amy on May 29, 2013 at 9:52 pm

    My favorite t-shirts are plain t’s from Loft. So comfy and can be worn with anything!

  15. Gina on May 29, 2013 at 9:55 pm

    I love a sweatshirt my little sister gave me from when she served in Iraq

  16. sue on May 29, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    i still have AE tank tops from a few years ago! they are the perfect fit and so comfy

  17. Charlotte on May 29, 2013 at 10:05 pm

    My favorite thing in my closet is a pair of black leggings – They are comfortable, movable and match every top that I own!

  18. Caitlin on May 29, 2013 at 10:14 pm

    were the shapeup emails sent out yet? I am not sure if I am signed up. I left a comment on yoru last post but not sure if that is correct!

  19. Gabriella on May 29, 2013 at 10:20 pm

    My favorite tee shirt is black with good chatacters my husband brought back from Hong Kong. He purchased it on a boat in Hong Kong harbor. Softest tee i have ever owned, even after 20 years. Now hubby is ill and it also has sentimental value.

  20. Gracie on May 29, 2013 at 10:30 pm

    I would say my favorite items are my workout clothes, I exercise everyday and find myself just want to wear those all day:) I definitely love a good t-shirt!!!

  21. Beth on May 29, 2013 at 10:30 pm

    My favorite t-shirt is an old college shirt that really should be thrown away, but it is so comfy I wear it every night for bed. The material is really hanging in there by threads!

  22. Carolyn on May 29, 2013 at 10:39 pm

    My assortment of men’s Fruit of the Loom tanks I got years ago that I wear all the time. Bed. Gym. Lounging. You name it!

  23. Katie on May 29, 2013 at 10:40 pm

    I have a tshirt from when I was in 5th grade that our whole class signed. It still fits. I’m so short! I’d love the!

  24. Katie Z on May 29, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    I love my relay for life shirts with The American Cancer Society.

  25. Christina on May 29, 2013 at 10:50 pm

    The top I was engaged in! Even though I haven’t worn it in years haha

  26. Laurel on May 29, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    My cousins old (circa 1995?) sigma chi soccer shirt. The letters and numbers are coming off, but I’ll never part with it!

  27. Shauna G on May 29, 2013 at 11:09 pm

    I have a torn and pretty gross-looking Diamondbacks shirt that my brother bought at a game in probably 2000 or so. My SO has tried so hard to make me throw it out, but I can’t!

  28. Hannah on May 29, 2013 at 11:26 pm

    I love my old tshirt from summer camp, circa 2004, with armpit holes and all! Brings back great memories.

  29. Laura D on May 29, 2013 at 11:31 pm

    I have an old t shirt of my daddy’s that he gave me ages ago. I will never let it go.

  30. Jessica on May 29, 2013 at 11:35 pm

    The cotton shirt from my first 5K. Never thought I could run 1 mile let alone 3.1!

  31. Elena Vo on May 30, 2013 at 12:16 am

    The Yoga tee in Aqua Vapor (what a great name for a color!) is my favorite. I’d love to wear it to my yoga class.

  32. tiffany on May 30, 2013 at 12:58 am

    i love my intramural shirt from college. so comfy and brings back good memories. 🙂

  33. Doris on May 30, 2013 at 1:27 am

    I have a pair of wedges I will never get rid of. It so comfy and sexy at the same time! I would wear any of the t-shirts you have. Thanks

  34. Mariam on May 30, 2013 at 1:28 am

    I love the red one! Cute!

  35. Casey on May 30, 2013 at 1:32 am

    I will always, always keep my grey Creighton tee (even though it has a couple small holes in it already) because its comfy and brings back lots of good memories!

  36. Ruby cropper on May 30, 2013 at 2:16 am

    My diamondback jersey I’ve had since I was 12! And I’ll b 26 next month! Still fits me and I love it! GO DBACKS! 😀

  37. Megan on May 30, 2013 at 4:17 am

    Aw dang, missed the deadline! My favorite T is my MuteMath tee I got at their tour. Whatever cotton its made out of nourishes my soul, it’s so comfortable. I think I wear it 5-6 nights a week (i got a size too big). And I am a closet hoarder. I still have shirts from when I was in middle school.

    I have issues.


  38. Jen on May 30, 2013 at 4:39 am

    i think i’m too late 🙁 but just in case…my favorite t is a really soft TNA shirt i got at aritzia a couple of years ago. unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), it no longer fits well because i’ve lost a good bit of weight.

  39. Lisa Bailey on May 30, 2013 at 7:26 am

    My Swim team sweatshirt from high school 🙂

  40. cassi on May 30, 2013 at 9:06 am

    Hey Gina, when you make your paleo bread, do you use a different size loaf pan or the size she says must be used?

  41. Brittany on May 30, 2013 at 10:06 am

    I have an old pair of sweatpants that I inherited from a friend in college. They have my alma mater’s mascot pictured on the side, are a weird shade of white-gray, and have holes in them. But, I love them, so they aren’t going anywhere. I also love my boyfriend’s first USMC shirt that he bequeathed to me. He’s at training right now and so I wear it basically every night!

  42. char eats greens on May 30, 2013 at 10:19 am

    Fave t-shirt has to be my bright pink under armor workout one right now!!!

  43. Amanda H on May 30, 2013 at 10:24 am

    I don’t really have any clothing that I won’t eventually part with. I do have some outfits that I love to wear, that I still do wear, even though they are pretty old. I’m still trying to convince myself to donate them, but it’s tough when I still want to wear them!

  44. Jennie Gift on May 30, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    My favorite T-shirt is a vintage T that I am sure I will wear holes in it before I get rid of it.

  45. Debbi on June 1, 2013 at 12:01 am

    Hi Gina, have you tried Twice for selling your clothes?

    They send you a prepaid bag and you just pack it and drop it at the post office. They will send you an email with a price for everything, in addition to letting you know anything they don’t want. You can accept or decline, and they deposit the money into your Paypal account. They also give you a list of the brands they accept (no Target, Forver 21). I’ve made at least $300 on clothes I would have brought to Goodwill.

    • Fitnessista on June 1, 2013 at 12:37 am

      no way!! i’ll do that- thank you! 🙂

      • Debbi on June 2, 2013 at 1:55 pm

        Let me know what you think if you do it.

    • Fitnessista on June 1, 2013 at 12:48 am

      will you leave a link to your referral code so you can get credit?

  46. Debbi on June 2, 2013 at 1:59 pm

    Sorry, a little backed-up on my blog reading.

    Here it is:

  47. conni on June 30, 2013 at 6:43 am

    Hi Gina, I’m a little late in reading this but did you get rid of those shorts on the upper left (the topmost pair)? I’ve been looking for those forever!

    • Fitnessista on June 30, 2013 at 11:03 am

      no i still have them. let me know if you want them- they’re a little short for me

      • conni on July 1, 2013 at 10:38 pm

        Oh my goodness! I would love them! Can you email me?
