Crazy Bag Lady

Hey guys! How’s your morning going?? Ours is bueno- we just got to our gate at the ATL airport πŸ™‚ We fly to Miami and then the BAHAMAS!

I’m walking around like a crazy bag lady πŸ˜€


We checked all of the roll-y bags, but I still have two purses and a yoga mat πŸ˜‰

Now we’re chilling at the gate, the pilot munched a parfait and OJ, and I have all of the makings of a perfect breakfast


Oats, bananner, Vega protein, Refresh tea

I picked up the protein powder at Whole Paycheck (I say that lovingly) when we got into Hotlanta last night

whole foods

Whilst browsing the protein, I saw the Vega and grabbed some packs. A girl who was shopping asked me if it was any good and of course I had to rave about it (she probably was taken aback by my protein enthusiasm). She bought a big container, though πŸ™‚

We went to the pilot’s dadoo and stepmom’s casa, and then all went out for hibachi.

Standard miso soup:


House salata:




Ze little shrimp:




Not too shabby πŸ˜‰

Well I’m about to eat my bfast and start Julie & Julia. I LOVED the movie, and am hoping the book will be just as good. I brought Twilight for the pilot to see if he wants to get sucked into it read it, but apparently he doesn’t want a punch in his man card πŸ˜‰

  5. allison @ livingoneday on May 11, 2010 at 9:59 am

    eek those vega packets are way too expensive for me to justify! i suppose it’s good for on the go or to sample it, though! can you post a picture of your “own cups” that you bought? im so curious to see what youre talking about!!

  6. Little Bookworm on May 11, 2010 at 9:59 am

  7. Therese on May 11, 2010 at 10:02 am

    Not jealous at all…

    Have a great trip and soak in some rays for me!

  8. Courtney (Pancakes & Postcards) on May 11, 2010 at 10:09 am

    Ten bucks says you catch him furtively reading Twilight when you aren]t looking. That crap is addictive!

  9. Katherine on May 11, 2010 at 10:14 am

    So crazy, I have that SAME fortune taped onto my computer screen! I think I have had it there for about three years. LOL!

    Have a great trip!! Thank you again for your help yesterday. πŸ™‚

  10. Heather (Heather's Dish) on May 11, 2010 at 10:18 am

    haha i am SO excited for y’all! i feel like i’m about to go on a tropical vacation too πŸ™‚

  11. Kristin (Cook, Bake and Nibble) on May 11, 2010 at 10:21 am

    I love Whole Foods. So does my boyfriend… except he doesn’t like that we have spent over $80 the last three times we went there! Whole Paycheck it is.

    OH and I am a crazy bag lady too… “packing light” is not in my vocabulary πŸ˜‰

    Have FUN on your vacation!!!


  12. kirsten on May 11, 2010 at 10:22 am

    have a good trip! πŸ™‚

  13. Amara on May 11, 2010 at 10:25 am

    I don’t know —you tell the pilot there are big vampire fight scenes, and he may break down. My husband is a huge fan of all of the books but the last one (no fights πŸ™‚ ). The movies? Not so much. Don’t tell him I told you though….

  14. Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman on May 11, 2010 at 10:27 am

    Yes, Whole Paycheck indeed. It’s unavoidable. I couldn’t even get my husband to watch Twilight the movie, so I’m not surprised the pilot turned his nose up at the book. I’ll admit it’s very girly. πŸ™‚

  15. Laura J. on May 11, 2010 at 10:29 am

    Mmm I love hibachi!! There is a place here that has amazing hibachi and it’s FREE on your birthday.
    I fought the Twilight hype for so long and I finally broke down last summer and read the books. Officially obsessed now. I haven’t read Julie & Julia or seen the movie, but I’ve heard great things about both! πŸ™‚
    Have a good flight!! Can’t wait to see pictures from the Bahamas!! Aaa you’re so lucky!

  16. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on May 11, 2010 at 10:30 am

    Safe travels Gina! My ex-bf absolutely loved Twilight. He wanted to gain an insight into how girls’ brains work.

  17. Naomi (onefitfoodie) on May 11, 2010 at 10:33 am

    haha I was buying a kombucha the other day and a woman asked me what I thought of it what it tastes like and i was SO enthusiastic, she probably though i was crazy too…she did buy one though! πŸ™‚ I hope she liked it!

    have a safe trip!!

  18. Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg on May 11, 2010 at 10:36 am

    Aghghgh!!! Have so much fun!!! This time last year, we were getting MARRIED in the Bahamas! Say hello for us! πŸ™‚

  19. Diana (Soap & Chocolate) on May 11, 2010 at 10:43 am

    Let us know how you like Julie and Julia–I loved the movie but would be curious to hear a book review. I read Freakonomics a couple years back though and remember enjoying it. Buen viaje!

  20. Sarah @ cocoanutshakes on May 11, 2010 at 10:43 am

    LOVE striking up conversations at supermarkets about different products!! Always puts a huge smile on my face.

  21. Logan on May 11, 2010 at 11:00 am

    Gina, don’t let the book disappoint you. I read reviews on Amazon that kept me from buying it. Apparently the original author is nothing like “Julie” from the movie in that she uses a lot of profanity and is I think this is one of the situations where the movie is going to be a lot better than the movie. You should read “My Life in France”. I think you would enjoy that a lot.
    Hsve a great trip!

  22. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on May 11, 2010 at 11:04 am

    Love your polish color! Have a safe trip!

  23. maggie b on May 11, 2010 at 11:18 am

    Aww man, I was at that very whole foods last night!! i wish i had ran into you!!! I would have been that crazy girl being like “Are your THE fitnessista?”
    Have a blast in the islands!

  24. Lisa on May 11, 2010 at 11:19 am

    I would also recommend reading the Julia Child bio ‘my life in France’ the movie Julia and Julie was actually based on that book too, and both books were WAY better than the movie! Enjoy your vaca!

  25. Terrie @ Fit4myLifetime on May 11, 2010 at 11:27 am

    Let us know what you think of Julie & Julia! Loved the movie, couldn’t finish the book, though.

  26. Tyler on May 11, 2010 at 11:34 am

    I work at that Whole Foods!!! Wish I had been working when you were there πŸ™‚

  27. Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) on May 11, 2010 at 11:48 am

    Great fortune. I always blow off the silly ones but secretly hope the good ones are true. πŸ˜‰

  28. KeeKee on May 11, 2010 at 12:07 pm

    wow. You have more bags than I had when I flew to UK for my student exchange programme. and that was a one year programme. XD

  29. on May 11, 2010 at 12:19 pm

    hmmm how fitting is that fortune! i mean ur on vacation!! hehe xoxo <3

  30. Lindsay (Summit Sandwiches) on May 11, 2010 at 12:27 pm

    I wish I could run into you at a Whole Foods. I love it when people get excited about food. Primarily because I ALWAYS get excited about food, especially the food in Whole Paycheck! It’s nice to know there are kindred souls out there, just waiting to proclaim their joy about food to random people in grocery stores.

  31. Kilee on May 11, 2010 at 12:42 pm

    Haha! I also have this fortune taped to my laptop. It reminds me to keep on chuggin’ till I find a new job. Have tons of fun in the islands!

  32. Gracie on May 11, 2010 at 12:45 pm

    Confession: I am SO jealous of you right now! I would give anything to be heading to a tropical destination right about now (as I sit at the office on the computer all day, bleh!). Have an amazing time! xoxo

  33. Charlsie on May 11, 2010 at 12:55 pm

    Man card or not, Twilight is fan-freakin-tastic! If you rent the movie and watch the riff trax ( for it its hilarious even for dudes!

  34. Jane on May 11, 2010 at 1:10 pm

    Wow….I thought I packed heavy…can’t wait to see all the great outfits you brought:) Have a fabulous time….so jealous…sitting here at work and it is so cold here in Canada right now…ps. lucky you are not flying out of Canada….we have a bag restriction ….only one (40lbs)

  35. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on May 11, 2010 at 1:38 pm

    Hehehe I had to laugh at your protein-rave to the woman in Whole Foods! I love telling people about products I love as well.. my spin class recently got 2 product raves about Lunas and my peanut butter & chocolate protein powder. I hope you have an amazing trip! Get some sun for me (because we certainly don’t have much here at the moment!) πŸ™‚

  36. Romy on May 11, 2010 at 2:02 pm

    Hi Gina, I wish you and your pilot a wonderful holiday πŸ˜€ Enjoy your time together and relax πŸ™‚

  37. Salah@myhealthiestlifestyle on May 11, 2010 at 2:16 pm

    Ya’ll are going to have such an amazing time! I can’t wait to see pictures! haha and I LOVE Twilight…I’m so eager for the Eclipse movie to come out June 30…I’ve already read the entire series!!!

  38. Cassie @ A Very Busy Mind on May 11, 2010 at 2:18 pm

    This is me being jealous. πŸ˜‰ Have a safe trip! Can’t wait for a tropical post!

  39. Heather @ get healthy with Heather on May 11, 2010 at 2:21 pm

    I need to try Vega!!

  40. Becca on May 11, 2010 at 2:44 pm

    Oh yeah, I read Julie and Julia and…it was a little different from the movie. Lots of language and sex, and a little depressing, honestly.
    But still funny, and I finished it because I was determined to. Just a good “elliptical read”.
    Let me know what you think of it!

  41. kate on May 11, 2010 at 2:57 pm

    Have fun in the Baha’s!

  42. Kellie on May 11, 2010 at 3:09 pm

    I love whole paycheck too. I told my husband when we are rich I am going to get all my meals there.

  43. Carolyn @ on May 11, 2010 at 3:19 pm

    I just missed you at the ATL. I was there yesterday coming home from Pensacola. Have a stress-free journey there!!

  44. Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) on May 11, 2010 at 3:59 pm

    Oh fun! Enjoy your trip!!! I need to get some VEGA, I have yet to try it out. Curious to know what your thoughts on the book are…I have mine already.

  45. Melissa @ For the Love of Health on May 11, 2010 at 4:22 pm

    that’s a lot of bags!! lol
    have fun!

  46. Ilana on May 11, 2010 at 5:00 pm

    Gosh, I thought *I* knew how to pack a lot!
    Have a great trip!!

  47. Mo on May 12, 2010 at 8:11 am

    Get this . . . taped to the top of my computer monitor at work is a fortune I pulled out of a fortune cookie probably 3 years ago – and it says, “Your hard work will soon pay off.” I was working almost 70 hours a week, so I needed something to keep me going! So glad you had a safe trip as you are already in paradise. Have fun!


  48. That’s a good fortune!

    I hope you have a great trip, you little bag lady! πŸ™‚ atleast they’re cute bags!

  49. The Healthy Apple on May 12, 2010 at 2:13 pm

    Have a fabulous trip; safe travels darling!!!!
