Gimme Gimme S’more

“First you take the graham



You stick the chocolate on the graham


Then you roast the ‘mallow


When the ‘mallows flaming… you stick it on the chocolate. Then cover with the other end.

Then you stuff.”

Movie guesses anyone?? For the record, I may or may not have had a crush on Benny the Jet Rodriguez back in the day 😉 I’m just sayin’

I’m a little (over)excited for one thing I’m sure to enjoy this weekend: S’MORES! I haven’t had a s’more since… maybe middle school??? I got the goods for healthier s’mores at the amazing health food store, and also spent the day SHOPPING!

I got a little gifty for myself, to keep the tootsies warm in freezing Gatlinburg


Bella approved 😀

She is a little con artist lately. When the pilot and I got home from the gym tonight, Bella was out of her crate, gallivanting around and enjoying her freedom. Little punk 😉

Some of today’s eats:









I feel like my girls Kristen and the twins feasting on kraut. I’d forgotten how DELICIOUS and SALTY it is! Not just a condiment anymore.. it’s a delicious little snack 😀

Workout-wise, I cleaned the casa today (definitely a workout!), did weights with Jeni (shoulders, chest and triceps) and ran 2 miles followed by 20 minutes of walking (at 4.2mph, all at 2.5% incline).

We’re packing up for Gatlinburg 😀 I’m scared of the cold and ghosts, but excited to have my yoga mat and internet connection with me. I heard a rumor there are outlet malls nearby 😉

See ya on the road!

Much love

    I want to try that bar SO badly! I can never find it anywhere though…bummer.

    I am definitely jealous of your s’mores 🙂 Next time I hit up my health food store I’ll be on the lookout for those ingredients!

    Are the slippers from VS? I got a pair a few years back and still wear them all the time…they’re so cozy!

    Enjoy your road trip with the pilot!!

    • Fitnessista on December 22, 2009 at 10:54 pm

    Love the healthy version of the Smores..may need to try that. Your socks remind me of my fuzzy socks but longer. I love mine i wear them all the time, especially with my Uggs. 😀

    Yes, there are outlets. They have a nice Coach outlet there. Its on the exit road towards Dollywood and a huge indoor waterpark.

    Have fun! Merry Christmas!

    The best part of Gatlinburg is the shopping!

    Have a great trip!

  7. Rachel on December 22, 2009 at 11:32 pm

    OMG love that movie. Straight out of my childhood! Anytime I say “forever” I repeat myself “foreeeveeerrr.”

    • Fitnessista on December 22, 2009 at 11:37 pm

      lol! forever. foreverrrrrrrr. forever

  8. Danielle on December 23, 2009 at 12:05 am

    Ah SANDLOT. I just have to say that my brother made me watch that with him at least a 100 times. I had it memorized at one point! Those smores look delish!

  9. MeggyD on December 23, 2009 at 12:28 am

    Hi G$ 😉

    I have a question – on the road travelling, with your yoga mat and internet connection – what kinda of things to do you do? Do you do yoga from memory, bring videos or stream videos? Any video (bought, rented or streamed) suggestions?

    I’m looking to do the same sort of thing while at the in-laws in freezing Omaha.


    • Fitnessista on December 23, 2009 at 7:36 am

      hey meggyd-
      i’ll usually bring some dvds with me (nyc ballet company workout, zumba winsor pilates) and will also use and itunes for yoga podcasts. i did yogadownload almost every day in the hotel last time i went to fresno- it was a lifesaver!

      • MeggyD on December 23, 2009 at 10:34 am

        Thanks so much for the tips and recommendations!

  10. Alyson on December 23, 2009 at 1:48 am

    The Sandlot! And I totally had a crush on Benny 🙂

  11. Foodie (Fab and Delicious Food) on December 23, 2009 at 2:46 am

    Oh my gosh, The Sandlot is such a great movie! Love it! Cute post!

  12. Alexandra on December 23, 2009 at 4:27 am

    Maybe it is the fact I am about to head home for the holidays & see my fam, but this post made me so so happy / nostalgic this morning!

    Heroes get remembered but legends never die, follow your heart kid, and you’ll never go wrong.

    Happy holidays!

  13. Lizzy on December 23, 2009 at 4:41 am

    i LOVEEEE sandlot. i used to think that if only I could meet benny, he would totally realize that we were meant to be haha.

    cute socks and yummmmmmmy s’mores!!

  14. MissMolly on December 23, 2009 at 6:50 am

    Oh Sandlot!! One of my old favorites. My nickname my dad and brother gave me was actually SMALLS when I was younger but it has stuck with me! Now most of my friends call me

  15. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on December 23, 2009 at 6:53 am

    LOVE the Sandlot. Could watch it everyday.

  16. Kristin (Cook, Bake and Nibble) on December 23, 2009 at 8:08 am

    Love the S’mores!! And I loved the Sandlot =)


  17. Averie (LoveVeggiesandYoga) on December 23, 2009 at 8:25 am

The m’mallows are yummy too and of course Dagoba or SCharffen Berger are the bomb 🙂 And the RawVolution..b/c of you I’m gonna hunt that bar down and try one! Have a great trip, Gina!

    • Fitnessista on December 23, 2009 at 10:21 am

      i found them at the health food store! let me know if you’d like me to send you some 😀

  18. Paige (Running Around Normal) on December 23, 2009 at 8:32 am

  20. Janna (Just Flourishing) on December 23, 2009 at 8:41 am

    Yes! S’mores. LOVE THEM!
    Totally love your sock/slippers, they look so comfy!

  21. Jess of Veg Out! on December 23, 2009 at 8:47 am

    Cute slippers/socks!! Love those.

    Also, I totally had a crush on Benny the Jet, too! I’d have fought you for him back in the day. 😉

    • Fitnessista on December 23, 2009 at 10:20 am

      hahaha, bring it 😉

  22. Heather on December 23, 2009 at 9:06 am

    I still say “FOR-EV-ERRRRRR” all the time with my friends. Those who get it, I love forever! That is the “Stand By Me” of the mid-20s generation, I think! (Though I still love Stand By Me)

    Sooo… I’m guessing you got those graham crackers from the health food store! I am going to search WF and mine HFS around here because gluten-free, trans-fat free & HFCS-free = perfect graham cracker!

  23. Katie on December 23, 2009 at 9:53 am

    I LOVE S’mores! Hope you enjoy yours to the fullest.

    Safe travels, my dear 🙂

  24. Melissa S. on December 23, 2009 at 11:06 am

    yay for smores! i want to find those mallows so i can have some!

  25. Heather @ Get Healthy With Heather on December 23, 2009 at 11:15 am

    Have you ever tried a roasted banana instead of a marshmellow? It is the best smore I’ve ever had! Hope you have fun

  26. Tina on December 23, 2009 at 12:25 pm

    Ah Sandlot. What great memories!

  27. Katy @ These Beautiful Feet on December 23, 2009 at 2:04 pm

    Oh, the!! 🙂 🙂 Didn’t everyone have a crush on Benny?? 😉 Love your s’more. I want s’more..s’more what?? 😉

  28. Diana (Soap & Chocolate) on December 23, 2009 at 2:27 pm

    Ooooooh, I recently made coconut milk cinnamon-graham ice cream with these whole wheat grahams I found–it was awesome! You’ve got me thinking I should’ve thrown some chocolate in there too, though… 🙂

  29. emilyb on December 23, 2009 at 2:32 pm

    Cute anime marshmallows!

  30. Kirsten on December 23, 2009 at 2:53 pm

    yessss! love benny the jet, he was so cute! 🙂

  31. Aletheia on December 23, 2009 at 2:53 pm

    Mmm, I’m learning to warm up to sauerkraut!! I had it in a raw French Canadian restaurant (in Montreal) recently, and I thought it was ingenious of them to “dye” the sauerkraut a light pink with beet juice! It was gorgeous, girly, AND tasty! 😉

  32. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on December 23, 2009 at 4:09 pm

    Mmmmmm….smores! We have an outdoor fire pit so we do those every now and then when guests come over. People get really excited about them! 🙂

  33. Joelle (The Pancake Girl) on December 24, 2009 at 1:12 am

    I loveeeee smores!! So yummy and comforting!

  34. Erin on December 24, 2009 at 1:16 am

    Those s’mores are crazy healthy! I can’t believe you haven’t had one since middle school! THAT AIN’T RIGHT! I have them every summer at the beach!
    Have a blast honey baby 🙂
