Girls Night and Eye Candy

Hi guys! Happy Indian Food Wednesday! Who’s celebrating??? We’re heading to Atlanta later today but I’m going to see if the pilot wants to stop and get Indian to munch on the road πŸ™‚

Last night, the pilot was working late (again) so I met up with the girls for dinner and drinks at Two Friends. Having a girls night was way more fun that making an omelet and chilling at home πŸ˜‰

I had a glass of Riesling the size of my face,

and ordered the Ahi Tuna with asparagus for my entree.


We were in the mood for dessert, so we each ordered a dessert and shared πŸ˜€

I rolled with the tiramisu


and also had bites of the bread pudding (which is foodgasmic) and chocolate mascarpone cheesecake.

We closed the place down! It was lovely πŸ™‚

Here’s the plan for today:


-Pack (I made a list but just need to get everything together)

-TurboFire (45 EZ today)

-Drop off the puppers

-Beg Best Buy for my computer (they quoted me two weeks and have had it for 17 days….)

-Get on the road!

See ya this afternoon <3

    I freakin’ love tiramisu. It is my most favorite dessert! That slice looks heavenly.

  2. Nicole @ Making Good Choices on July 28, 2010 at 9:41 am

    I hope you get your computer back!

    • Fitnessista on July 28, 2010 at 9:45 am

      ME TOO!

    I have never tried tiramisu, but it looks really good.

  4. Katie on July 28, 2010 at 9:53 am

    Ahhhhhhhhh all the Indian Food is making me hungry!!!!! Yummy! I hope you and the pilot get your indian food in tonight before heading off to Atlanta!

    I feel your stress on the computer, my fiance had his computer at Best Buy to be fixed as well, they told him 2 weeks and then it turned into a month, and then after almost two months, I kid you not, he calls and they tell him, Oh it cant be fixed, so they replaced it with a new computer, was nice they gave him a new laptop, BUT he didnt get his old laptop back and he had things on there he wanted and a cd in his laptop he forgot to take out of his cd drive too, so it was not a good experience, Best Buy really really stinks with their cusomer service!!!!!!

    I hope you get yours back !

  5. Sandra on July 28, 2010 at 10:10 am

    Thanks Gina. Now I’m drooling πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on July 28, 2010 at 10:26 am

      you are welcome πŸ™‚

  6. Holly @ couchpotatoathlete on July 28, 2010 at 10:11 am

    Michelle’s homemade naan is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen! Wow. Good luck with Best Buy — I’ve never had any problems with them and their customer service is usually stellar, so I hope it all works out today. I’m sure they are taking good care of Pinkie and getting her all fixed up.

    I think it is the unwritten rule that you have to get dessert on a girls night dinner!

    • Fitnessista on July 28, 2010 at 10:25 am

      they just called- pinkie is fixed and ready to be picked up!! wahoo!!!!!

  7. April @ Crazy Fabulous Life on July 28, 2010 at 10:15 am

    Tiramasu is the best! I have never eaten Indian food, but your blog has made me extremely curious. What do you think would be a good Indian dish for a first timer?

  8. Paige (Running Around Normal) on July 28, 2010 at 10:17 am

    oooh, such a tease with that eye candy! lol I’ve been craving Indian food for DAYS now. Oy.
    Have fun on your trip today! So exciting πŸ™‚

  9. allison @ livingoneday on July 28, 2010 at 10:18 am

    woahhhh i still have YET to jump on the indian band wagon. although i did make thai coconut curry the other night (recipe on my blog). does that count?? hahah

  10. Heather (Heather's Dish) on July 28, 2010 at 10:37 am

    tiramisu? yes please!!!

  11. Kristina on July 28, 2010 at 10:38 am

    Mmm, that tiramisu looks divine…

    have a fun trip! πŸ™‚

  12. Courtney @ Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life on July 28, 2010 at 10:40 am

    Mmmm, tiramisu is great! Unfortunately, the bakery that made my absolute favorite one of ALL TIME closed down, and I have yet to find a replacement that lives up to the old one.

  13. Shanna @ Shanna LIke Banana on July 28, 2010 at 10:59 am

    That tiramisu is a beauty! I’ve never seen it made in that fashion. Please send me your leftovers asap πŸ˜‰

    • Fitnessista on July 28, 2010 at 12:25 pm

      leftovers?? what’s that??

  14. Andrea @ Thin Thighs & Sweet Potato Fries on July 28, 2010 at 10:59 am

    OMG, that naan looks divine! Breads are my weakness, especially ones that look as doughy as that one! πŸ˜€

    How are you liking Turbo Fire, btw? I had a chance to sample it before it came out, but haven’t yet decided if I want to order it. Would love to get your thoughts!

    • Fitnessista on July 28, 2010 at 12:22 pm

      i’ve done a few posts about it, but i absolutely love it. so much fun and perfectly challenging πŸ™‚

  15. Run Sarah on July 28, 2010 at 11:21 am

    Love Indian food Wednesday! Tiramisu = amazing – one of the best desserts ever!

  16. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on July 28, 2010 at 11:23 am

    I’m oogling over that tiramisu too. Yum! Yay for getting your computer back!

  17. Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine on July 28, 2010 at 11:26 am

    Such an amazing girls’night dinner!! Tiramisu is such a great choice πŸ™‚ Good luck getting your computer back- if it’s still not ready, you should ask for a discount!

  18. Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman on July 28, 2010 at 11:28 am

    Eh, tiramisu just doesn’t do it for me. But bread pudding? There’s not even a photo and I’m drooling.

    • Fitnessista on July 28, 2010 at 12:21 pm

      i should have taken one… it was perfect and the buttery bourbon sauce was ridiculous

  19. The Nutritionist Reviews on July 28, 2010 at 11:30 am

    That tiramisu looks so good! And so does the indian food!

    Also, I have 8 giveaways going on on my blog right now if anyone wants to check em out!

  20. RhodeyGirl on July 28, 2010 at 11:45 am

    Did you ever make any fake tiramisu while on South Beach? I distinctly remember loving a recipe with mascarpone, vanilla, and some chocolate chips!

    • Fitnessista on July 28, 2010 at 12:20 pm

      no! i have never heard of that recipe but it sounds awesome πŸ™‚ i used to have the chocolate ricotta pudding every night though (ricotta, cocoa powder and splenda)

  21. Jessica (Fit and Clean) on July 28, 2010 at 12:04 pm

    Best Buy quoted me 10 days and they had it for 15 or 16! At least I was out of town while they had it…or I would have been calling every day! πŸ˜‰

  22. Lana Wilson on July 28, 2010 at 12:29 pm

    mmmmm!! Happy Indian food Wednesday!! I hope you get your indian food fix with the pilot later today πŸ™‚

  23. Alycia @ Fit n Fresh on July 28, 2010 at 12:47 pm

    I still don’t know how I feel about the Indian food, but it looks lovely at the very least πŸ™‚

    Have fun in Orlando!

  24. Danielle (Runs on Green) on July 28, 2010 at 12:48 pm

    I must re-stock my Indian food! After looking at your pics, I’m going through naan withdrawls

  25. Megan @ Healthy Hoggin' on July 28, 2010 at 12:48 pm

    I love tiramisu! And bread pudding is one of my favorites!! I had a “banana bread” bread pudding a couple weeks ago, and it was maybe the best thing I’ve ever eaten in my life!

    I love Indian Food, but my husband and I can only eat it about once a month– it does a number on our stomachs! It’s so tasty, though, it’s kinda worth it. πŸ˜‰

    Have a fun trip to Atlanta!!

  26. Tina on July 28, 2010 at 12:48 pm

    Have a safe trip!!! I hope you find a way to get your Indian food Wed in.

  27. rori on July 28, 2010 at 12:58 pm

    Gina-did I miss it? did you end up watching “princess bride”? Did you like it?

    • Fitnessista on July 28, 2010 at 1:01 pm

      yes, i did watch it! LOVED it. πŸ™‚

  28. Sassy Molassy on July 28, 2010 at 1:14 pm

    Mmm…tiramisu makes me swoon. That reminds me, I should have the manfriend take me out to get some real soon. πŸ˜‰

  29. christina on July 28, 2010 at 1:14 pm

    haha, you’re making me crave indian food at 9am! I celebrated yesterday myself… πŸ™‚

  30. Cindy on July 28, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    I hope you’re happy: I just came back from Indian food with a co-worker and declared our own Indian Food Wednesdays. Indian food babies for all!

    • Fitnessista on July 28, 2010 at 1:24 pm

      whoo hoo!!!

  31. Kathryn on July 28, 2010 at 1:32 pm

    Have a great time in Atlanta..I’ll be there today too but only in the airport πŸ™‚

    Good luck with the computer…best buy had ours for FOUR months before it was actually fixed (had it like 3-4 weeks at a time, got it back, wouldnt even turn on etc..VERY frustrating!!)

  32. Dorry on July 28, 2010 at 1:42 pm

    This post made me hungry for lunch! It’s 12:42 here in Dallas – perfect timing! I’m so excited for Indian Food Extravaganza Saturday night of HLS!

    • Fitnessista on July 28, 2010 at 1:47 pm

      me too!!

  33. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on July 28, 2010 at 1:59 pm

    Oh girl I hope you have a faboooosh time in Hot ATL. Back in the day when Scott and I lived in NC and SC (Myrtle Beach) we’d go to Atl b/c it was alot more hoppin’ and wonderful than Myrtle Bch and I can tell you some stories about Phipps Plaza and Peachtree everything πŸ™‚ God I burned up some money there! And drank and partied my arse off all over town…fun memories πŸ™‚ Hope you have a stellar time!

  34. Alyssa @ Bride To Be Fit on July 28, 2010 at 2:21 pm

    I really want to try Indian food, but I’m semi-intimidated by it! I have no idea what I would order or what is healthy/unhealthy?!?!

  35. Naomi(onefitfoodie) on July 28, 2010 at 2:24 pm

    i want to see HHA just to see how different it is from insanity! The eyecandy never hurts either πŸ™‚

    holy tiramisu!! thats hugeee and so light and delicious looking πŸ™‚

  36. Laura (B Foxy Fitness) on July 28, 2010 at 3:30 pm

    That tiramisu looks delectable! Girl, you were busy today! Have a safe trip and live it up in the A-T-L! πŸ™‚

  37. laura on July 28, 2010 at 3:30 pm

    Wooooooooow! That Tiramisu looks absolutely massive..and delicious too;-)
    Has it really been a whole week since Indian Wednesday! Time is flying! xx

  38. How are you liking the turbo fire? Is it worth getting? I take turbo kickboxing classes at the gym and it would be nice to have a video for at home, but I’m not sure if it’s going to be intense enough?

    • Fitnessista on July 28, 2010 at 3:59 pm

      it’s definitely intense- i LOVE it πŸ™‚

  39. Ellen@FirednFabulous on July 28, 2010 at 3:46 pm

    Ohh my gosh, your eats look DIVINE. I love Indian Wednesday! I rarely eat it, but there are so many good places in NYCβ€”I need some spice in my life these days!

  40. Allison @ Food For Healing on July 28, 2010 at 5:54 pm

    oh man i could really go for some Naan, i love that stuff

  41. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on July 28, 2010 at 6:49 pm

    You poor thing! I could never be separated from my laptop for so long! We’re not good with the whole long distance relationship thing. πŸ˜‰

    Have a good drive to Atlanta!

  42. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on July 28, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    Oh my….all that deliciousness!!!! Homemade Naan???? YUM
