Give me three

Hi friends <3 Hope you’ve had a lovely day.

Mine was a DOOZY. We had service training at the resort, so I learned about our level of guest service and other knowledge tidbits today. I really enjoyed the class, but it’s so hard for me to sit still for 8 hours.

The good news is that the trainer encouraged us to get up and stretch when we needed to, they provided coffee, bagels, healthy cookies and macaroons (which were to diiiiiieeeee for, but mine win) and brought toys for us to play with.

I had the green play doh:

photo (80)

and made the most awesome [ghetto] snowman.

Recent eats and treats:



(I took a before picture since I’ve been posting the same smoothie for the past 3 days.. it’s so good though)

Lunch + snacks


-organic grapes, blueberries and a plumble jumble

-quinoa crisps with PB and cinnamon

-a teff tortilla with a crumbled Sunshine burger, ketchup and Dijon

I also enjoyed a chocolate chip cookie and two macaroons at work.. they were perfect for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up.

Salmon bites:


Love. [You can find those beauties in the freezer section of many health food stores]

So during our training today, we had to write down 3 things that make us “us.”

I didn’t think they’d be read to the class (of course they were) and that everyone would have to guess who wrote what, but here are my three:

1. Passionate about health and fitness

2. A good friend and

3. Goal-oriented

It was definitely hard to pick 3 things — I could have picked girly, caring, organized, etc. (one of my friends wrote “legit” haha) but those are the 3 I rolled with 😀

What would your 3 things be? I always like to hear more about all of you 😀

I’m going to let me brain unscramble and then head to Zumba 😉
See ya in the morning with a Reader’s Request post!

    Those salmon bites look like they’d be good in a pinch!!

  17. Anna on June 21, 2011 at 9:17 pm

    This makes me think of an interview question that I had to answer. I think mine would be:
    Enthusiastic (about what I love)
    Committed (to what I believe)

    It is hard to pick just three!

    • Fitnessista on June 21, 2011 at 9:19 pm

  18. Marie on June 21, 2011 at 9:18 pm

    enjoy your evening!

  20. @ThisLittleLambe on June 21, 2011 at 9:30 pm

    – compassionate
    – patient
    – people-lover

  21. Jessica @ Sushi and Sit-Ups on June 21, 2011 at 9:31 pm

    Yikes I feel like that’s a good interview question! Mine would be: hungry for food and life, hard-working and empathetic.

    1. Animal lover

    3. A worry-wart lol (I worry about every little thing!)

  23. Kayla on June 21, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    Of course, like you, I could have come up with a boatload more.

  24. Joelle (On A Pink Typewriter) on June 21, 2011 at 9:45 pm

    My three would be:
    1. Enthusiastic (about life, happiness, etc.)
    2. A true friend
    3. Travels for love

    I’m going to add a numero 4 – eats more pancakes than men twice her size. 😉

  25. Laura Jane @ Recovering Chocoholic on June 21, 2011 at 9:46 pm

    The sitting still for 8 hours seems to be the bane of my existence! I’ve been working as an engineer at my “real job” for four years since graduating college, and I still cannot seem to get used to the whole sitting for 8 hours part. It’s all I can do sometimes not to fall asleep. It really doesn’t even matter how busy I am or how interesting the stuff I’m working on is. I just need to move!!! The three questions is really tough. Mine would probably be;
    1) Devoted Christian
    2) People-Pleaser and easy going
    3) Love to bake and organize

  26. Jessica on June 21, 2011 at 9:48 pm

    1. Foodie (I will try anything once)
    2. Animal lover. (especially dogs)
    3. Devoted to my family and friends

  27. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga on June 21, 2011 at 9:51 pm

    Ok 8 hours of anything!! would drive me nuts..and just sitting there. Ugh. And being pregnant and sitting there.. Double whammy. I will say that the older I get, the more I must have ADD or something. I just need to be moving or busy or something or I get ants in my pants 🙂

    3 things that make me me?
    give 110% to everything I do
    brain never shuts off

  28. Mellissa on June 21, 2011 at 9:53 pm

    Hard working, Type A, strong

  29. Molly on June 21, 2011 at 9:58 pm

    Patient (as a teacher I kind of have to be!)

    Love the play-doh idea…that is a newer idea in the field of education. It is suppose to help with focus and learning.

  30. sarah (sarah learns) on June 21, 2011 at 10:01 pm

    oh wow! it’s so hard to pick 3 things! i’d say:

    loves learning/education
    very loyal
    always smiling

  31. mi-an on June 21, 2011 at 10:04 pm

    hmmm…i would say
    1) Determined
    2) Ambitious
    3) Visionary
    4) Health and Fitness fanatic

  32. Stephanie on June 21, 2011 at 10:07 pm

    Fun post! I would say…

    1) creative
    2) curious
    3) loving

  33. J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) on June 21, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    Salmon bites!? I must find these!!!

  34. Annette (with a side of brownies) on June 21, 2011 at 10:17 pm

    I cant imagine sitting anywhere for eight hours, I’m too fidgety.
    My three words would be:
    sucker (for kittens, I just took in two more bringing us up to four)

  35. Lindsay on June 21, 2011 at 10:18 pm

    My three are big heart, intuitive and calm!

    PS: Do you cook your salmon bites in the oven? I bought the crab bite version and tried to make them on the stove… and they totally fell apart in the skillet!!! They were delicious though 🙂

  36. Jill on June 21, 2011 at 10:19 pm

    Silly and Sarcastic, Stubborn, Introverted.

  37. suzi on June 21, 2011 at 10:35 pm

    Oh Gina, I really wish you would have taken a photo of your ghetto snowman!

    Three words? Yikes that’s a toughie. I guess I’ll go with:

    1) Organized
    2) Shy {despite the fact I shake my booty for a living, I real am shy!}
    3) Funny {at least that’s what they tell me ;)}

  38. elizabeth on June 21, 2011 at 10:38 pm

    Hi Gina,

    I have not been able to find frozen cherries anywhere. I found mixed berries, but I keep looking for the straight cherries. I have tried Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods.

    Where do you get them?



  39. Laura (Cookies vs. Carrots) on June 21, 2011 at 10:57 pm

    It is hard to choose just three! For me I would say 1) Fun-loving, 2) Thoughtful, and 3) Sarcastic.

  40. Gillbear on June 21, 2011 at 11:04 pm

    Honestly I saw the green playdoh and then the before picture of the smoothie with green in it and thought you’d decided to make an interesting addition… 😛


  41. Annie@stronghealthyfit on June 21, 2011 at 11:20 pm

    Determined, caring, and creative 🙂

  42. Rachel on June 21, 2011 at 11:38 pm

    Haha, play doh rocks. Take it easy at work Mrs. Soon-to-be-Mamma!

    1. Die-hard Optimist
    2. Survivor
    3. Lover of people and animals

  43. kaila @ healthy helper! on June 22, 2011 at 12:01 am

    Mmmm those salmon balls look delish! I love me some omega threes!

    My three things would be:

  44. Sara on June 22, 2011 at 12:03 am

    Well mine have changed since living in a natural disaster zone for EIGHT MONTHS now. I’m re-evaluating everything I thought about myself and realised I just can’t pick three things right now.. maybe.. insane, tougher than I thought and… more fragile than I thought (?).

    Does anyone know if there is a site for downloading PiYo workouts? It sounds right up my alley and like something I would do naturally anyway (I seriously love to Vinyasa to trance music).

  45. Julie (A Case of the Runs) on June 22, 2011 at 12:23 am

    Mine would be…

    – predictable
    – punctual
    – quick learner

    I’ve been told these things…

  46. Ali on June 22, 2011 at 12:29 am

    Wow, good for you sitting for eight hours!! I remember the days of school and sitting like that, I don’t think I could do it now. Do you like working where you are working?
    My three things would be

  47. chickster on June 22, 2011 at 1:41 am

    Picking only three things is soo hard!
    a) Independent.
    b) Adventurous.
    c) Open Minded.

  48. emily on June 22, 2011 at 3:33 am

    my three things would be my independence, that i’m a complete francophile and my sense of humor 🙂

  49. Janiek on June 22, 2011 at 4:52 am

    Dreamer, Idealist, Realist. I know, weird combination right?! but it’s true!

  50. babs on June 22, 2011 at 5:47 am

    Hmm . . . what makes me “me” . . . it would be interesting to see what other people say. you should ask the pilot to pick three things to describe you 🙂

    Mine would be:
