Fortune Fail

Hey friends!

How’s your Sunday going?? I still have no idea what time it is. My TV says 8:42 and my iPhone says 9:42, so I’m going to roll with 8:42. AZ has never done the daylight savings thang, so methinks the iPhone is confused.

Last night, after getting my hair did (thanks for the sweet compliments- it feels SO much better to have it cut/colored/smoothed out), my stomach was gnawing on my backbone.

Pei Wei to the rescue:

pei wei

Standard kid’s teriyaki shrimp with brown rice + vegetables, steamed instead of fried. The kid’s size is the perfect size for Pei Wei- did you know that most of the entrees are actually 2 full servings?

+ a fortune fail:


(in bed? Haha)

Way to tell me something I already know, fortune 😉 I leave for Valdosta on Wednesday and definitely think it could be considered a “distant land” 😀 One of my besties, Jeni (whose baby shower I went to last month) had her baby a couple of weeks ago. I’m going to visit, meet the new baby (who is sooooo cute) and catch up with my Valdizzy friends.

So that means LOTS of packing over the next two days- I’ll be gone for a week!

After Pei Wei,

I went over to little sis’ house to snuggle with Vieserton. She came to Tucson for the night with her new family, and whenever they’re here I like to go hang out and see her.


When I got home, Bella wouldn’t stop smelling and kissing me- I think she misses her sister, but is enjoying being sassy and running amuck without another dog to keep her in check.

This morning, I made a lovely green juice + green tea

green juice

and a breakfast cookie.

bfast cooookie

-1/2 C gluten-free oats

-1/2 scoop Standard Process dairy-free protein (CAN’T WAIT until my Sun Warrior gets here)

-1/2 banana

-1 T cashew butter

-almond milk, cinnamon, vanilla

I’m waiting to hear from my nana (aka “little friend” –she’s saved in my phone as “friend”) before munching it since we’ll probably go to brunch before my other nana and I go house shopping.

The house I showed ya’ll last weekend is already the winner in my eyes, but the Pilot wants to check out all of our options before making a final decision. So I’m off to scope out the goods 😀

Be back later with a house hunting re-cap!

    Good luck on the house hunting. I know you will find something that is perfect you!

    Be safe and have a great trip. 🙂

  2. amber on March 13, 2011 at 12:14 pm

    House shopping is the best kind of shopping – it’s not everyday you get to drop 200K or more, on a purchase 😀 Have fun!!

  3. Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete on March 13, 2011 at 12:28 pm

    Have fun house hunting!

    I just love your breakfast cookies — they are my favorite pre-long run fuel! 🙂

  4. Colleen @ The Lunchbox Diaries on March 13, 2011 at 12:28 pm

    Ah, I can’t wait until I get to go house hunting! Good luck!

  5. VeggieGirl on March 13, 2011 at 12:31 pm

    Hehe I chuckled about the fortune 😉

    Have fun house-hunting!

  6. Sana on March 13, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    I can’t wait till you guys settle on the perfect houseee!

  7. Melissa on March 13, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    its daylights savings today! thats why your phone updated the time change!

    • Fitnessista on March 13, 2011 at 12:45 pm

      az doesn’t do daylight savings though- that’s why i’m confused!

      • Stephanie on March 13, 2011 at 2:30 pm

        I think AZ is smart; daylight savings stinks!

  8. Megan @ Healthy Hoggin' on March 13, 2011 at 12:41 pm

    Daylight savings threw me for a loop this morning! I couldn’t understand why I was so tired at 8am this morning, then I realized it was really “7am” to me! That’s extra-confusing being in Arizona! My brother lives there, too, so I never know what time it is for him, either. 😉

    Good luck house-hunting!

  9. Lisa on March 13, 2011 at 12:54 pm

    I hope the pilot comes back next week. Let me know when u get to this distant land. Can’t wait to see you. Your hair is gorgeous!

  10. Katie on March 13, 2011 at 1:00 pm

    I think that is good to view all the house options ; ) but I know the one your heart is set on will be the keeper : )

    Have fun today and I Miss you friend so much!!!!!! xoxo <3

  11. Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine on March 13, 2011 at 1:02 pm

    Have fun house hunting!! I feel like that’s a pretty exciting form of “shopping” 🙂 It’s funny to me that AZ doesn’t do the time change, though I definitely wouldn’t complain about that. I love having lots of light in the early AM!

  12. Chris on March 13, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    I always want to order off the kids menu when at Pei Wei but I’m afraid they will be firm on the 12yo and under age requirement. Do you only get it when you take out?

  13. Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun on March 13, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    Aw, yay on getting to visit your friends and also the baby. And “In bed” with fortunes is always so much fun.

  14. Kate on March 13, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    I ordered the SW too! Can’t WAIT to try it. How long does it normally take to arrive?!?! And, I finally made my first batch of amazeballz the other day. I’m officially in addicition trouble… 😉

  15. Allison @ Food For Healing on March 13, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    aww viesa! bella probably does miss her, thats so sweet.
    good luck house hunting, you definitely gotta keep an eye out for something else too, good thing the pilot keeps you in check 😛 just buggin.
    have a great sunday! we dont change clocks in Saskatchewan either, i love it.

  16. Runner Couple - Sara on March 13, 2011 at 1:20 pm

    Good luck with the house hunting!! I hope you all are able to find the PERFECT house!!

  17. jen @ taste life on March 13, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    That fortune is funny – I just got a terrible one last week and I can’t even remember it. It was no bueno!

  18. Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn on March 13, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    I hate it when I get fortunes like that!! Have so much fun searching for houses, and p.s. tell Pei Wei to extend to Upstate new York por favor!! It would make my life ten times better.

  19. Dana Marie on March 13, 2011 at 1:52 pm

    I had food poisoning or something horrible last night and puked till nothing was there (it makes no sense- unless the bulk bin at wholefoods is contaminated) and I am consequently in my windowless basement lilting around still, but it’s 1 52 according my clock — but I’m ET
    yes I say to bed with thee and me and sleep away this sunday

  20. nicole on March 13, 2011 at 1:53 pm

    I just checked out your blog post from yesterday and your hair looks gorgeous! Can your madre please do my hair? It’s in desperate need of some TLC. Have fun house hunting!

  21. Mama Pea on March 13, 2011 at 2:04 pm

    Wait, so no meetup?! 🙁

    I hope you have a good trip…email me if you are going to be around at all!!!

  22. Stephanie @ Walking my Talk on March 13, 2011 at 2:16 pm

    House hunting is so exciting! Have fun “shopping”!

  23. Laura (On the Threshold of Greatness) on March 13, 2011 at 2:32 pm

    Hmm…. I have a suspicion there’s something else exciting happening in Valdosta too. Maybe catching up with a really special friend? 😉 I’m happy for you, Gina!!

    Have fun house hunting!

  24. Stacy @ LoveDiscoveryGratitude on March 13, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    Much luck to you on the houses (and convincing him of the one you love) 🙂

  25. Ryan @ Aloha Appetite on March 13, 2011 at 3:08 pm

    In bed. Ha! Hubby opened a fortune cookie last night and it said “You will have luck coming your way next week”… of course we both added the “in bed” in our heads and cracked up.

    Happy house hunting!

  26. Ashley @ Feeding Ashley on March 13, 2011 at 3:35 pm

    Good luck house hunting! Viesa is so adorable and I’m glad you got to see her.

  27. Emma (Namaste Everyday) on March 13, 2011 at 3:39 pm

    breakfast cookie looks awesome! do you just heat it in the microwave? for how long?

    • Fitnessista on March 13, 2011 at 10:29 pm

      you can heat it but i usually eat it cold

  28. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on March 13, 2011 at 3:55 pm

    cute fortune cookie and yes, parts of GA (and NC and SC where I used to live) could be considered a distant land from california, too. It takes a good day++ and like 3 airplanes and connections just to get there..haha!

    But I love how you and pilot do fortune cookies…don’t you guys always tack on “in bed” to the end of the fortune? or some cute little thing that i’ve read before and made me giggle.

    I love that you’re loving your hair. I just posted about my brazilian blowout. I am loving mine again now that im sleek and smooth again 🙂

  29. Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife on March 13, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    Have fun with house hunting madness!! That fortune cookie was hilarious 😉

  30. Katie @ Nourishing Flourishing on March 13, 2011 at 4:56 pm

    Hope all goes well with house-hunting! 🙂

  31. Erin on March 13, 2011 at 5:07 pm

    Happy house hunting! Through lurking on your blog, I have been inspired by you to try acupuncture and am starting this week. I hope it goes as well for me as it has for you!

    • Fitnessista on March 13, 2011 at 10:29 pm

      let me know what you think!

  32. Jaclyn on March 13, 2011 at 5:23 pm

    Fortunes are so funny, aren’t they?! – so random, ha!
    Wow, crazy that Jenni already had her baby! I remember reading that she was newly preggers- how time flieeeees!!!

    Just coming back from an ahmazing weekend in Vegas, back to life, back to reality..
    but hope all is well w/ house hunting.. and when DOES the Pilot get home?

    • Fitnessista on March 13, 2011 at 10:29 pm

      soon 🙂

  33. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on March 13, 2011 at 6:53 pm

    Good luck on the house hunting! That is basically what I order at Pei Wei too! I couldn’t believe it when I discovered their adult meals were 2 servings: 2 servings of the main dish AND 2 servings of rice/noodles. Crazy.

  34. Christin@purplebirdblog on March 13, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    So sweet about Bella smelling Vies on you!!! 🙂

  35. Hotchick on March 13, 2011 at 7:56 pm

    Aww Viesa looks so cuddly there. Do you get to have him back when you move to your new home? Also, how is your Dance Trance business coming along? I’m thinking of starting my own business but the only problem is I don’t have money:(

  36. Stephanie @cookinfanatic on March 13, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    I had NO IDEA that Arizona didn’t do daylight savings time… I didn’t know it was an option?! How did I not know that in all my 29 years… ?! And agreeeeed, that would be so uber confusing 😛

  37. Lisa on March 14, 2011 at 2:15 pm

    I’m with the few other commenters who think there is more to why you are going back to Valdosta !!!!!! 😀
