Fit Tuesday Workout

Hiiiiii! Happy Fit Tuesday! Hope you’re having a great morning. <3 I’ve got a Fit Tuesday workout for you below, but first, Bella says hello. 🙂


(She also says, “Give me all your chicken.”)

Brunch with Madre

We’ve had a blast with madre here. After we picked her up from the airport, we headed to Great Maple and the Hillcrest farmer’s market. We walked around the market until it was time for our table to be seated, and then we enjoyed maple-bacon donuts, coffee and mimosas.

Maple-bacon donuts

Liv loves the French toast, and since it’s a little too big for her to eat on her own, we help her out with it. 😉 

Vegan hash with eggs

I was really tempted to get the avocado toast again, but on a mission to not be boring and try something different, I rolled with the vegan hash + 2 eggs on top. It was GLORIOUS. There were potatoes, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, kale, tomatoes, and smoky Harissa. So so good.

A snack I’ve brought back from the past: (Greek goat’s yogurt, berries, cinnamon, hemp seeds, almond butter, and a drizzle of honey)



Since brunch was so filling, we kept it casual at home for dinner: grilled chicken (with cumin, coriander, garlic, salt, pepper, and ginger), coconut oil roasted sweet potato rounds with sea salt, and an impromptu kale salad, which was similar to this one

Fit Tuesday Workout

Today is Fat Fit Tuesday! In the spirit of putting a little spin on day well-known for its “live it up” traditions, I put together a circuit workout. It has strength segments and cardio blasts, which is my favorite way to train. All you need is a pair of dumbbells!

(Last year’s Fit Tuesday workout is here!)

Let me know if you give it a try! <3



Do you order the same things from your favorite restaurants or do you like to switch it up? How are you celebrating Fit Tuesday today?? xo

    Omg your vegan hash sounds amazing! And Bella!! What a cutie. 😀

  2. Linda @ TheFitty on February 17, 2015 at 4:49 am

    I generally do order my favouritEs from restaurants, and since I rarely go out to eat, I rarely get to try something new.

    So I may be sorta obsessed with your dog, she is SO cute!! I love brunch spots that offer fun ways + vegan sorts of entrees! This weekend my husband and I went to Khao Lak an island in Thailand and I ate gluten free dairy free pancakes for the first time and they were delicious! Its nice to eat outside the norm! Have a great week Gina! xo C

      hahaha thank you; she is so funny 🙂

    Looks like a great workout! I am pinning this!

      let me know if you give it a whirl! 🙂

    I can’t EVEN handle the sight of those maple bacon donuts. O.M.G. They have to sell these somewhere in SF, right?? Maple donut has been my fave since I was a child, and add bacon? I can’t even!!! I am on a mission to find these…or make them myself (fry some bacon + get a maple donut?) Haha!

      hopefully you’ll be able to track some down. SF has to have them somewhere!

  6. Lauren @ The Bikini Experiment on February 17, 2015 at 5:42 am

    I do tend to eat the same thing when I go to favorite restaurants. Sometimes I try to mix it up though! Love the workout theme – very clever. Have a great Fat Tuesday!

  7. Livi @ Eat, Pray, Work It Out on February 17, 2015 at 5:51 am

    That yogurt bowl looks so delicious! I have to find some goat’s dairy to try!

    • Fitnessista on February 17, 2015 at 6:10 am

      do you have a whole foods? they have the greek goat’s; it’s really good!

  8. Crystal on February 17, 2015 at 6:33 am

    We don’t have a lot of great restaurants where we live, in the rural Midwest. Most of the local ones are known for things like biscuits and gravy, lol. I think we’re lucky to have a pretty good Thai place, though, and I think I’ve tried almost everything on their menu.

    I already did Fit Tuesday this morning, cardio at the gym 🙂

  9. Nicole on February 17, 2015 at 6:45 am

    I have a tendency to order the same things. I do try to switch it up occasionally, but often go back to my favorites. Celebrating Fit Tuesday by doing my Workout 4 of WSU tonight!

  10. Chelsea @ TableForOne on February 17, 2015 at 7:09 am

    Those donuts!! Yum! I also love the idea of Fit Tuesday instead of Fat Tuesday.

  11. Emily @ Sweet Summer Smiles on February 17, 2015 at 7:19 am

    I had a hard time figuring what that was until I read below! I can’t below those are donuts! They look SO good! Can’t wait to try the Fit Tuesday workout!

  12. Allison @ Wine and the Wooden Spoon on February 17, 2015 at 7:54 am

    That vegan hash looks so good! It’s amazing what poached eggs can do to enhance a food’s flavor! I’m totally the type that orders the same thing from a restaurant if I have a favorite. Otherwise, if I decide to branch out and try something new, I usually end up disappointed.

  13. kristin | W [H] A T C H on February 17, 2015 at 8:20 am

    love the idea of a fit tuesday workout!

  14. Kariann on February 17, 2015 at 8:36 am

    Workout check in for today: Boot Camp class at 5:30pm at the YMCA!

    Your Fit Tuesday workout looks awesome too, I’ll have to try it later this week! I always get the same things I know I love at restaurants…my boyfriend is the “select at random,” so between the two of us, we get a bit of everything. 🙂 That vegan hash with the eggs looks amazing; kudos to trying out something different…and have it turn out delicious!

  15. Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious on February 17, 2015 at 9:16 am

    I really love how you say “honor your body.” So true!

  16. Elle on February 17, 2015 at 9:18 am

    Its hard to branch out from a favorite for fear of a let-down. That’s why I usually let the husband be adventurous and try his meals!

  17. Stacy @ Sweating Tulipz on February 17, 2015 at 10:26 am

    That vegan hash looks so yummy. I am pretty predictable at most restaurants. I feel like if I don’t order the meal that I know I love, I will regret it after tasting a not so satisfying choice. My husband teases me, but I can always count on him to pull me out of my comfort zone and order new things!

  18. nicole on February 17, 2015 at 10:39 am

    Had the EXACT same breakfast at Great Maple on Sunday–maple bacon donut + vegan hash w/ two fried eggs. Great Maple Minds think alike!!

  19. Cate on February 17, 2015 at 11:12 am

    I just did some WSU workouts, but this one looks good for later. Have a great FIT Tuesday!

  20. Sneha on February 17, 2015 at 11:53 am

    That potato hash recipe looks great!. Checking in for this week’s giveaway, I’m going to do the Fit Tuesday Workout and some yoga.

    Question for ya: What’s a good protein poweder mix that isn’t too pricey? I’m currently trying the chocolate flavor or some whey protein, but does whey have negative effects on women’s health?

  21. Lindsey @ Simply Lindsey on February 17, 2015 at 1:37 pm

    Those maple bacon donuts look heavenly!!! I could go for a few of those and an americano right about now! 😀

  22. Amy S on February 17, 2015 at 2:28 pm

    The vegan hash with eggs looks divine!!! I wish a plate of it was sitting in front of me right now 😉

    At certain restaurants, I’m adventurous and try new menu items often. But other times, like at my favorite Thai restaurant, I just HAVE to have the same thing over and over again. The pad Thai at Joy Yee in Chicago is to die for. I get it with chicken and shrimp and limes, and it’s incredible. I don’t know if I could ever order anything else!

  23. Les @ The Balanced Berry on February 17, 2015 at 3:14 pm

    I’m a TOTAL creature of habit at restaurants. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a Mexican restaurant, and didn’t order chicken fajitas. Like ever.
    I celebrated Fit Tuesday with some kettlebell work this morning, but love that circuit above! I’ll definitely need to give it a try 🙂

  24. Alli O'Neill on February 17, 2015 at 4:35 pm

    Looks like a great workout I will try soon!

    I usually go with the same meals, so boring but always so good! Sometimes I can force myself to try something new, usually leading to another meal as my go-to

  25. Nicole @ Runs & WODs on February 17, 2015 at 4:36 pm

    Loving this workout! I make my clients do something similar and they love it!

  26. Maggie on March 4, 2015 at 2:46 am

    I love that you incorporated balance into this routine. I’m always looking to hone my balance, especially in my legs, as I am a runner.
