Gym sightings

Hey everyone!!! How are ya? Sorry to go MIA on ya last night… I was busy getting ready for a flight to Tucson that got canceled.More on that in a second 🙁

I’ve been seeing some fun things around the gym lately…


Miz!!! This lady is the epitome of health and fitness 😀



Funny quotes lady was wearing that supercute PINK shirt the other night. Made. My. Day.

Another fun little thing:


Mini Raw Revolution bar! Mmmmmm. I snacked on that baby after pilates and Zumba last night before my training appointment.

Last night, I didn’t end up having Indian food… I had quite the opposite, actually 😉

Egg whites with salsa and cilantro


Split pea soup (Amy’s brand) with cayenne


And later on, popcorn with nutritional yeast and sea salt


So insanely delish.

Guess what time it is?!?

Time for a PUPPY REVIEW!



The very harsh judges 😀

The product:


Tinkerbell (a cute little lady I train) gave these to me a couple of days ago (and no, she doesn’t work for Newman’s Own or a PR company. She’s just sweet and thoughtful) and the puppies were very stoked to have their treat stash replenished.

I’ve bought these for the puppers before, as I try to only buy organic treats for them and the ingredients are stellar.


And I may have accidentally eaten a piece of one in my lifetime 🙂

The puppers loved them, as always. I’m pretty sure they like peanut butter anything 😉

Some of you asked about the eyeliner I went to buy yesterday at Targizzle.

This is the good stuff:


It goes on smooth, doesn’t smear and can make some awesome smoky eyes, too 😀

So all day today, I’ve been running around like a crazy person trying to get ready to leave. The pilot called Delta to make Bella’s pet reservation and was told our flight had been canceled. Apparently Delta called Hotwire to notify them that the flight had been canceled and Hotwire didn’t call, text, nada. If the pilot hadn’t called we would have finished packing and would be on the way to the airport right now. I’m kinda bummed out that out trip is being cut short.. I haven’t seen my family in so long and we’re supposed to leave at 5:30 in the morning now and get into Tucson at 1. I hope the plane leaves and we get there, or my vacay time will continue to dwindle. The pilot doesn’t get to take leave very often and his time off is being wasted :/ Bah. So please send some good travel vibes our way!

See ya tonight with a reader’s request post 😀

    Sorry to hear about the flight to Tuscon. What a bummer! Have my fingers crossed that you’ll get to see your family super soon. Lucky you going to Tuscon, it’s soo cold here in Ireland but on a positive note I got out of work at 1pm tonight because work shut down due to it getting too dangerous and icy to travel home. Heres hoping I get a nice lazy lie in tomorrow.
    Safe flight to Tuscon and sending good vibes you’ll get there soon.

  3. Jessica @ How Sweet on January 7, 2010 at 2:43 pm

    Ahh I hope you guys get there…I know how much I would miss my family if I couldn’t see them.

  4. Paige @ Running Around Normal on January 7, 2010 at 2:51 pm

    Sorry about the cancelled flight:( Thank goodness the pilot called! Wishing you a quick and smooth flight there – and soon!
    That eye liner is my favorite drugstore e/l! Love the khols.

    Hi Gina, sorry to hear that your flight got canceled. I send you a lot of good travel vibes your way!!!!!! Got them? 😀 I wish you a beautiful stay with your family!!

    I should get Indian food yesterday too but we went to our favorite Italian instead 🙂 It was delicious too!! Perhaps tomorrow or Saturday I can indulge in Indian food 😀

  6. Carolyn on January 7, 2010 at 3:04 pm

    Good luck on making it to Tucson to spend plenty of time with the fam!

  7. The Hot and Fit on January 7, 2010 at 3:05 pm

    I hope your travel plans workout somehow!

  8. Lauren @ Eater not a runner on January 7, 2010 at 3:05 pm

    Sorry about the flight, traveling is so frustrating! Hope everything goes well from here on out 🙂

  9. Kathleen on January 7, 2010 at 3:06 pm

    So sorry your plans are being thrown around! I hope everything works out!

  10. Caroline on January 7, 2010 at 3:08 pm

    Hey! Sorry about the flights, were you flying out of Atlanta? Because we’re all praying for snow up here!

    How do you get nutritional yeast to “stick” to popcorn? I’ve tried using it before and end up just sort of coating the bowl.

    • Fitnessista on January 7, 2010 at 3:57 pm

      hey girl,
      i spray the popcorn with the misto (olive oil) before adding the seasonings- it helps it stick perfectly 🙂

  11. Heather @ The Joyful Kitchen on January 7, 2010 at 3:11 pm

    what a bummer! i’ll be sending good travel vibes y’alls way…hope you enjoy the day off together though 🙂

  12. Kelly Michelle on January 7, 2010 at 3:20 pm

    sorry about your flight 🙁

    It’s crazy cause I had that exact same soup last night for dinner! weird huh? but it was my first time trying it and I was NOT impressed, will not be buying it again

    • Fitnessista on January 7, 2010 at 3:56 pm

      i have to add garlic powder, sea salt and cayenne to make it taste better 🙂

      • Kelly Michelle on January 7, 2010 at 8:31 pm

        haha sneaky, I think I’ll just try and make my own next time, it’s cheaper anyways, it def felt like it was missing something though

        • Fitnessista on January 7, 2010 at 9:06 pm

          hahah yes, it needs a little help in the spice area 😀

  13. Liz on January 7, 2010 at 3:30 pm

    That t-shirt is awesome. That would make my day, too…if I was a trainer and all, haha.

    By the way, I saw your exercise video earlier this week and I was wondeirng if you are going to post any sumba videos in teh future? I think you mentioned that you might in an earlier post and I was all excited 🙂

    • Fitnessista on January 7, 2010 at 3:56 pm

      i’ll definitely post a zumba video in the near future 😀

  14. Krista on January 7, 2010 at 3:41 pm

    Sorry to hear about the flight!!! 🙁

  15. rachael on January 7, 2010 at 3:46 pm

    Fingers crossed for a timely flight in the a.m.!

  16. Leah on January 7, 2010 at 4:12 pm

    Sorry about your flight. Thats so irritating. Im definitely sending you good travel vibes!!

  17. Whitney @ Lettuce Love on January 7, 2010 at 4:28 pm

    That is awful that they canceled your flight. I am sending good travel thoughts your way 🙂

  18. Sara on January 7, 2010 at 4:38 pm

    Good luck! *Good travel vibes being sent*

  19. Danielle (Coffee Run) on January 7, 2010 at 4:42 pm

    Sorry about the traveling woes 🙁
    Yay for bloggers being in magazines though!

  20. Rachel on January 7, 2010 at 4:43 pm

    Aww, the puppies are so cute! Sorry about your flight… I know it sucks when that happens.

  21. Jessica on January 7, 2010 at 4:57 pm

    Good luck with your flight- what a pain! I have 2 questions:
    1.) Where do you buy your nutritional yeast? I asked the people at Trader Joe’s and they looked at me like I was crazy.
    2.) What kind of food do Viessa and Bella eat? I usually try to buy my dog the Iams “All Natural” stuff, but I’m wondering if that might not be good enough. I want him to be as healthy as possible! (sorry if you’ve posted this before!)

  22. Rosemary on January 7, 2010 at 5:10 pm

    OK, stupid question BUT how do you get your egg whites so fluffy and high in a perfect little round shape? Thanks!

  23. K on January 7, 2010 at 5:48 pm

    Hope you guys make it there safely!!

  24. Mara @ What's For Dinner? on January 7, 2010 at 6:04 pm

    UGH i swear, this is why im not flying any time soon… so sorry!

  25. Heather @ Get Healthy With Heather on January 7, 2010 at 6:10 pm

    My brother made some Christmas peanut butter dog treats for my pup and I may have tried one… or two… nothing to be ashamed of tho since the only ingredients were PB, oats and flour!

  26. Melissa S. on January 7, 2010 at 6:27 pm

    it’s not being wasted! it means some extra alone time with youuuuuuu lovely lady! think of it that way, no? 🙂

    hope everything goes well tomorrow with your flights.

  27. Jessica on January 7, 2010 at 7:25 pm

    I made my puppy homemade treats last week and he LOVES them!

    The very simple recipe is all natural and super easy to make! Sultan (my puppy) begs for them. Check it out:

    • Fitnessista on January 7, 2010 at 9:09 pm

      thank you, the puppies would love these!

  28. Rachel on January 7, 2010 at 8:21 pm

    Boo about the flight. Sending good travel vibes your way! This will just mean that ya’ll will just make the very most of every minute you’re in Tuscon!

  29. Jenna on January 7, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    Hope u get to Tuscan soon!!

  30. Jessica (Get My Skinny On) on January 7, 2010 at 10:30 pm

    I LOVE Amy’s split pea soup! It is so so yummy and doesn’t even taste like it comes from a can! =)

  31. Jenny on January 7, 2010 at 10:31 pm

    Good luck getting ready for your trip! And I always think it’s so funny that there are Newman’s Own dog products, lucky puppies 🙂

  32. BelezaJean on January 8, 2010 at 10:32 am

    Gina – Your egg whites always look amazing – how do you make them?

  33. Lisa on January 8, 2010 at 12:08 pm

    I luv F.Q.L.’s shirt, too cute. Have your pups tried Rachel Ray’s pet products?

    • Fitnessista on January 8, 2010 at 10:38 pm

      yes, the puppies loved the peanut butter bites– i can’t find them anywhere now though!

  34. Sara on January 8, 2010 at 10:26 pm

    I just bought the same treats for my baby girl (puppy) too!! She loves anything PB, just like her momma (me).

    It’s scary that I felt the need to clarify to hopefully prove that I’m not crazy for talking about my dog like she’s my child…

  35. carolinebee on January 11, 2010 at 3:30 pm

    AHAHHAA I FORGOT about when u ate a puppy treat!!!!! hahaha o good times….
    On a more serious note I’m so sorry about the travel prob’s, hope u made it ok!!
