Grandma got run over by a lulu

Hi guys!


Check out my sparkly antlers – people kept asking if they were horns, haha. We had the choice between antlers and a Santa hat to wear during the holiday season, so I rolled with the former Smile

Thank you so much for your amazing comments on the Pilot’s guest post. He’s a keeper Winking smile  I was so thankful that he offered to guest post for me- getting back in the swing of things after traveling is always a little cray cray.

Since I got into Orlando pretty late last night, I had someone else make dinner for me:

hot bar

Hot bar Open-mouthed smile

I had a lovely mix of vegan miso slaw and madras vegetables + a small cup of vegan pumpkin soup

The Pilot and I had a Skype date (Skype is my new favorite thing) and then I snuggled up with Bella and called it an early night.

This morning, in the spirit of getting back in the swing of things, I went to the gym for weights and spinning. Israel kicked our booties today- I loved every second.



1 egg, 2 egg white scramble, spinach and arugula, hot sauce and avocado (and a dip into the cashew butter jar)

Work snackage:


Bag of organic carrots and garlic hummus, salad with spinach, arugula and the rest of the avocado, Sun Warrior smoothie with almond milk

I came into work and it’s been a blasty- I missed my work friends Open-mouthed smile

Hope you guys are having a wonderful night and I’ll see ya in the morning <3

Stay tuned for a Sun Warrior promo and some crazy(good) changes starting Monday.



What’s your fave wintery/Christmasy/holiday song? I love ‘Carol of the Bells” and “Frosty the Snowman” because I’m obsessed with snowmen Winking smile And anything that Michael Buble sings…

    I love Oh Holy Night! But pretty much all christmas music makes me smile!

    Loved the pilots post!

    happy holidays!

    “Grandma got run over by a lulu” best titles everr!

  3. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on November 27, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    I love Michael Buble too! I think my favourite Christmas song is “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey – especially when watching Love Actually!! Have a great night 🙂

  4. breakingsilence @ Freshman -15 on November 27, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    Look up BarlowGirl’s version of Carol of the Bells. Ahh, so pretty…

  5. Laury @ thefitnessdish on November 27, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    “Your a Mean One….Mr. Grinch” –BEST holiday song EVER!

  6. Lauren on November 27, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    I love Silent Night and O Holy Night – especially sung by Nat King Cole!

  7. grocery goddess jen on November 27, 2010 at 8:58 pm

    I really did enjoy the pilot’s post! Doesn’t modern technology make being away from a loved one so much easier? Not easy or fun, but better.

  8. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on November 27, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    “Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow” and “All I Want for Christmas is You” are on my top Christmas songs list! I loved to pilot’s post this morning. I’m glad you got to skype with him, I hope it helps the deployment go by a bit faster.

  9. Courtney @ Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life on November 27, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    Absolutely love “All I Want for Christmas” by Mariah Carey. I have so many favorites though…the “12 Pains of Christmas” is also a super funny one 🙂

  10. Amanda (Eating Up) on November 27, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    Where Are You Christmas by Faith Hill…obsessed and not toooo overplayed!

  11. Chelsea @ Strawberry Sweat on November 27, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    Carol of the Bells is my favorite, hands down. “The 12 Days of Christmas” by Straight No Chaser is a close second!

  12. Leigh on November 27, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    It was a pleasant surprise to see you today, I was so surprised I forgot to tell you I really enjoy reading your blog! It is very motivational. We will be in Orlando again next weekend so if you see me I promise I am not stalking you! 🙂 Have a great weekend. And “Let it Snow” is my favorite.

  13. Christin@purplebirdblog on November 27, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    That scramble pile looks super delicious!

  14. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on November 27, 2010 at 9:43 pm

    All I Want For Christmas Is You! I love it!

  15. Alison (Ali on the Run) on November 27, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    I love love love rocking out to Jessica Simpson’s holiday CD! Not a huge fan of hers in life, but ohmygosh her Christmas music is fantastic.

    • Fitnessista on November 27, 2010 at 10:19 pm

      i totally agree- that’s an awesome cd!

  16. Georgie @ Georgie Goes Healthy on November 27, 2010 at 9:56 pm

    I think my favorite Christmas song is All I want for Christmas is You. I can’t wait to listen to Christmas music ALL day at work on Monday!

  17. Kelly on November 27, 2010 at 9:57 pm

    I never get tired of Mariah. I don’t know why.

  18. Brittany (Eating Bird Food) on November 27, 2010 at 10:05 pm

    I used to be obsessed with the Chipmunk’s Christmas but now my favorite holiday songs are Santa Baby and Mariah’s All I want for Christmas is you. But, I love all Christmas music… I don’t discriminate.

    I’m excited because we got our tree tonight!!

  19. salah@myhealthiestlifestyle on November 27, 2010 at 10:17 pm

    I love the song “This Christmas” by Chris Brown

  20. Elisabeth on November 27, 2010 at 10:49 pm

    Love the sparkly reindeer antlers!!! So festive 😀 So this is Christmas (the Celine Dion version) is really good. And the classic The Christmas Song is always a favourite!

  21. mindy @ just a one girl revolution. on November 27, 2010 at 10:56 pm

    Zooey Deschanel’s version of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” from Elf and any version of Oh Holy Night (especially Carrie Underwood’s)

  22. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on November 27, 2010 at 11:24 pm

    can’t wait to hear about the crazy GOOD! changes starting monday!

    Have a relaxing Sunday, Gina!


  23. Krystin on November 27, 2010 at 11:38 pm

    amen to michael buble! he could be giving me the worst news ever, and as long as it was in song form with his beautiful voice singing it, i’m sure i wouldn’t mind! 😉

  24. Clare @ Fitting It All In on November 27, 2010 at 11:49 pm

    Carol of the Bells is my favorite to play on piano, but I love All i Want For Christmas is You as a great sing along!

  25. caroline on November 28, 2010 at 12:04 am

    love the title of the post Gina – you are too cute! Happy belated thanksgiving to you sweetie 🙂

  26. Sarah on November 28, 2010 at 12:48 am

    I love your antlers, my husband and I were just talking the other day about how there should be more reindeer oriented Christmas decor – everything’s santa/penguins/snowmen! 🙂 My fave holiday song is O Holy Night, I have at least 3 versions on my I Pod 🙂

  27. Ashley @ the fit academic on November 28, 2010 at 1:32 am

    Usually I get sick of Christmas songs, but for some reason this year I’m totally into all of it! Can’t get enough holiday music of any kind! : )

  28. Namaste Gurl on November 28, 2010 at 1:36 am

    Can I just say I am SO excited for the sun warrior promo, first off. I’ve been bugging you about if for a few weeks now 🙂

    And second, you always manage to make your meals and snacks look SO scrumptious and perfect– even if your running out the door or just got home from vacation. How, when and where? 🙂 xx

  29. Felicia (A taste of Health with Balance) on November 28, 2010 at 10:38 am

    exiting !! seriously I want to thank you for introducing my to sun warrior. Without the promos I would not have bought it and I don’t know how I’ve lived without it. It is the best tasting protein I really have ever had (even beat out jay robb in my opinion) and there is no crap in it. LOVE IT! I stocked up last time but I just might buy so more 🙂

    • Fitnessista on November 28, 2010 at 10:48 am

      i’m so glad you love it! i’ve tried so many protein powders and it’s by far my fave 🙂

  30. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on November 28, 2010 at 12:32 pm

    I love “Let it Snow”, especially the Michael Buble version. 😉

  31. Beth on November 28, 2010 at 2:44 pm

    My favorite Christmas song – Oh Holy Night…by a mile! However, it has been butchered more times than I can count, so I’m a little picky who sings it. 🙂

  32. Dee on November 28, 2010 at 5:37 pm

    Carol of the Bells by the Transiberian Orchestra is my favorite! And All I Want for Christmas is You by MC. Oh and I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas by Bing Crosby. AND! Nat King Cole’s The Christmas Song. 🙂 I love Christmas music!

  33. rebecca lustig on November 28, 2010 at 8:29 pm

    i’m jewish, BUTTT i LOVE christmas tunes, including mariah’s hit and nsync’s merry christmas happy holiday.

    oh, and guster’s donde estas santa claus. LOVE that one

  34. Avery on November 29, 2010 at 11:53 am

    I live in Minnesota and my bf lives in Washington DC for work for the next year, so we do some video chatting here and there. We don’t do Skype but we both have macbooks with the little built in cameras, so we use that. It’s really nice to see his cute little face when I miss him like crazy!
