Foodgasm Panino + Saturday Bootcamp

Good morning πŸ˜€ How’s your Saturday treating you? Hope you have something fun going on today <3

Last night was a blasty.

I took a stanky, sweaty, triumphant Bikram class and then we took the puppers to the dog park.



The Pilot walking Scamp around πŸ˜‰


(I think Viesa is a little more his style, haha)

Dinner with the fam was at Press 101.


Press has an amazing panini selection, salads, flatbreads and the famous Flight of Chocolate dessert…

and buy one, get one free wine from 4-7.

Twist my arm, eh?


Pilot got his fave:


For appetizers, we all shared the trio of hummus:


and the Pilot got the Ratatouille flatbread, which I stole some of the topping from:


For my entree, I rolled with the usual Vegetable panino on wheat.


Squash, roasted red peppers, mushroom, onion, eggplant, goat cheese and pesto, melted and pressed into buttery, goat cheesy glory.

panino (2)

In other words, β€œtake a foodgasm between two pieces of wheat bread and throw it in the panini maker”

Panino domination occurred πŸ˜‰

This morning we’re off to a different dog park, and then checking out a vegan bakery that I might apply at.

See ya laterrrrrr <3



Something to do:

-Warm up (Stretch, go for a little jog, or jump rope, run in place)- 5 min total

  2. Jessica@tastyandtrim on September 4, 2010 at 9:35 am

    Your doggies are such little cuties πŸ™‚ That panino looks insanely delicious. I love sandwiches with warm cheese and veggies, yum!

  3. holly @ couchpotatoathlete on September 4, 2010 at 9:41 am

    Thanks for the bootcamp workout Gina!

    That sandwich looks amazing — so you didn’t get the Flight of Chocolate dessert??? πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on September 4, 2010 at 9:47 am

      no! we were too stuffed πŸ™ we wanted the pilot to be our pilot for the chocolate flight but alas, we were all way too full

  4. Amber on September 4, 2010 at 9:42 am

    Hi Gina! I just started reading your blog this summer, so I figured I should probably comment! I just love it. You are very motivating. Your workouts and recipes are awesome. I even ordered some sun warrior protein to try out. I was getting sick of my usual protein. Thanks for everything!

    • Fitnessista on September 4, 2010 at 9:46 am

      hey amber!
      thanks so much! πŸ™‚ i’m so glad you’re liking the bloggy.
      enjoy the sun warrior- i think you’ll love it πŸ™‚

  5. VeggieGirl on September 4, 2010 at 9:51 am

    LOOOVE Bella! πŸ˜€

    Great eats and workout, as usual dear Gina! <3

  6. Amanda- The Nutritionist Reviews on September 4, 2010 at 9:53 am

    Wow that sandwich looks and sounds so good! I must make a replica of it ASAP!

  7. Dana Marie on September 4, 2010 at 9:54 am

    πŸ™‚ one of the vicarious benes of checking in to your blog is the doggie love! AND now I have a yorkie to coo over! I used to have a one when I lived at home and they are so cute πŸ™‚ I love that exrx site too! I found it when looking for exercises for my VMO to help strengthen my knee again. THose gif are a thousand times better than ram intensive youtube vids. Enjoy FLorida for me! I cant wait to visit home again – it’s been 4years for me almost!

  8. Dana Marie on September 4, 2010 at 9:56 am

    How do you guys get your photo to populate that picture field???

    • Fitnessista on September 4, 2010 at 9:57 am

      wait, what?? i don’t know photo lingo, haha

      • Dana Marie on September 4, 2010 at 10:23 am

        like Holly the couch potato and courtney have a picture in their post πŸ™‚ it’s cuter — maybe they know

  9. Mary on September 4, 2010 at 9:56 am

    Are you bringing both dogs with you when you move? Does Viesa get along with your aunt’s pup?

    • Fitnessista on September 4, 2010 at 9:58 am

      i think just bella is coming- viesa has tried to eat my aunt’s yorkie twice and while my aunt said i could bring her and just keep an eye on her, a family that is looking to adopt vies might be watching her in valdizzy while i’m here. this way, i can still see her and will just be down the road.

      • Mary on September 4, 2010 at 10:03 am

        Well, I know how that goes. I have 5 pups and one has to go to the kennel while the others get to stay home when we go on vacation. She is just so hyper I don’t want to take any chances. Seems like we both need the dog whisperer bad! Did you adopt Viesa?

        • Fitnessista on September 4, 2010 at 10:06 am

          hahah seriously! i looked into sending her to his facility, but it’s $10,000! not exactly in our price range….
          no, we bought her from a breeder but thought we could train her from being dominant over little dogs. she’s gotten so much better, but we still worry about something happening

  10. Lauren @ BIOCHEMISTA on September 4, 2010 at 9:59 am

    Thanks for posting the bootcamp! πŸ™‚ I’m always looking for a good gym workout when I don’t feel like doing a machine (which is pretty much every single time I hit the gym πŸ˜‰ )

    Good luck on the job hunt today! That bakery would be LUCKY to have you!

  11. Barbara on September 4, 2010 at 9:59 am

    you have an amazing life.

    • Fitnessista on September 4, 2010 at 10:02 am

      thank you but i promise it’s not all sunshine and rainbows πŸ˜‰ i DO live in valdosta after all, hahah

      • Dana Marie on September 4, 2010 at 10:24 am

        haha I told my mom about how I read your blog, and I was like ”yeah there’s this girl who has a perfect life and blogs …yada yada ” πŸ™‚ lol

      • Dana Marie on September 4, 2010 at 10:31 am

        and I was being a little facetious obv because I know nothing is ‘perfect’ but it does look inviting! That’s why we all are here;)

  12. christina cadden on September 4, 2010 at 10:06 am

    mmm, looks so good!

  13. Chelsea @ Strawberry Sweat on September 4, 2010 at 10:23 am

    Mmm, sounds like an awesome panini. And the pups are so cute, as always πŸ™‚

  14. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on September 4, 2010 at 10:25 am

    Ooooh that panini IS a total foodgasm. I want it for breakfast.

    • Dana Marie on September 4, 2010 at 10:27 am

      Jessica, How do you make your pretty picture pop up in there?

  15. Heather (Heather's Dish) on September 4, 2010 at 10:36 am

    it’s official…i need something with goat cheese in it STAT!

  16. Chelsea on September 4, 2010 at 10:44 am

    Yum that panini does look so amazing! Anything that has warm goat cheese on it is right up my alley.

    I think Scamp suits the pilot just fine!

    Can’t wait to try that bootcamp workout, I’ve loved all of the other ones you’ve posted so far!

  17. Felicia (A taste of Health with Balance) on September 4, 2010 at 11:07 am

    my kind of panini.

    okay so from the comment above: you have to give your other pup away?!

  18. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on September 4, 2010 at 11:07 am

    oooh that sounds SO good! i’m obsessed with my panini press and grilled veggie sandwiches have been my faves lately. have a fantastic weekend! πŸ™‚

  19. MoniMeals on September 4, 2010 at 11:19 am

    What a killer panini. I have-got to find a place like that around here! I also wanted to ask you if the Sun Warrior takes awhile to get? No worries, I just have not gotten it and I ordered it about 2 weeks ago when you had the first go around offer. I know it will come:) Just thought I would ask if it takes longer sense it was a super deal! I NEED MY Sun Warrior PROTEIN!! lol. I know you can relate!
    Great Boot bamp circuit too.

  20. Dana on September 4, 2010 at 12:12 pm

    Bikrams baby!!!! Gotta love it!!

  21. melissa on September 4, 2010 at 12:14 pm

    mmmmm roasted veggies are my fave! what a nice little dogpark, scamp is super cute!

  22. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on September 4, 2010 at 12:15 pm

    That is pretty much my ideal sandwich. Love me some goat cheese! πŸ˜€

  23. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on September 4, 2010 at 12:36 pm

    Yumm. The sandwich looks absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to hear about your visit to the vegan bakery πŸ™‚

  24. Suzanne on September 4, 2010 at 2:00 pm

    I LOVE yuengling! It is my FAVORITE beer and I can’t remember exactly where the distribution line ends, but you can’t get it in most of the U.S. (….which, hmmm, maybe it’s a good thing I don’t have the option of buying it!) Not only is it delicioso for a drink, obvi, but it also makes a great chicken tenderizer. Seriously. Bottle of yuenglingadingdong, some chicky boobies, throw it in the crock-pot, and you’ll have pull apart chicken for whatever (pilot sandwich or whatnot).

    • Melissa on September 4, 2010 at 6:14 pm

      Let me know if you guys ever decide to tour the brewery. It’s right by here. We’ll take you to our favorite restaurants! πŸ™‚

  25. Brittany on September 4, 2010 at 2:22 pm

    That panini looks amazing. I need to make more paninis at home- I just never think about it.

    It looks as though you and the pilot are having a great time with the fam. Enjoy your holiday weekend Gina!!

  26. Paige @Running Around Normal on September 4, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    Aw, the pilot looks cute with Scamp, hehe:)
    Have a great Saturday! Hope you like the vegan bakery!

  27. Caitlin (EatFeats) on September 4, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    Vegan bakery sounds like so much fun! Eating a veggie panino doesn’t sound so bad either.

  28. Holly on September 4, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    I love it when you post workouts!! I’m a little lost in the weight room sometimes so I always get excited when you post some good workouts. πŸ™‚

    Your panini looked amazing!!

  29. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on September 4, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    Love the food pics…I can tell your camera skills and your DSLR are becoming second nature! They look great! I want a Dslr πŸ™‚

    Buy one get one on the wine…oh yes, twist my arm too!

    Have a great weekend, Gina!!!


  30. christina on September 4, 2010 at 2:31 pm

  31. Kelly b on September 4, 2010 at 2:58 pm

  32. Dana Marie on September 4, 2010 at 3:21 pm

    I think I figured it out

  33. Dana Marie on September 4, 2010 at 3:29 pm

    In case other people want their photo to pop up — check out this video go to gravatar

  34. Wendy @ Seriously Sassy on September 4, 2010 at 5:43 pm

    Oh my stars – the Ratatouille flatbread looks amazing. Why, oh why, do we have such lame-o restaurants around here? I must seek out restaurants that have things like Ratatouille flatbread. And all those hummus flavors. You guys had a great meal!

  35. CaSaundra on September 4, 2010 at 8:14 pm

    I’ve never had a panino/panini sandwich–crazy I know!

  36. ? HefiA on September 4, 2010 at 11:06 pm

    A vegan bakery??? Wow, I never even knew those existed. OK. Now I’m officially jealous πŸ™‚

    Glad to hear you’re having such a great time in Orlando. I love hearing from your life. It must be your way of writing. It always makes my day πŸ™‚

    Enjoy the rest of your stay.


  37. Kristen on September 6, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    The trio of hummus looks really yummy. Your sandwich sounds good too.
