Happy Eater

Morning friends <3 Hope your day is going well so far!

Since it’s Easter Sunday, I have to post my favorite Easter pic of Vies:



Yesterday ended up being pretty chill. We went swimming, I munched a couple of random snacks:


ice cream

(veg with nutritional yeast and pineapple protein ice cream. I haven’t had pineapple since last summer… it tasted like tropical candy)

and then I got ready to go to a friend’s house for taco and Brad Pitt night.

Gifts for the hostess:


When I got there, I was so excited to meet the new member of their family: a baby Great Dane!


She doesn’t have a name yet, but Luna is looking favorable 😉 She was such a sweetie, and even at 6 weeks old, weighs more than Bella. She’s going to be a very big dog 🙂

The taco spread was glorious:


(Spinach, lettuce, tomato, cilantro, green onion, sour cream, cheese, salsa)

and tasted like my childhood. They were fried, the way my madre makes them, and so soooo delicious. I wasn’t originally planning on having tacos when I came over –figured I’d make myself a veggie taco or a salad- but they were made of turkey instead of beef, so I decided to roll with it. So. Insanely. Good.

After tacos, the Brad Pitt movie of choice was Snatch. I couldn’t understand a SINGLE WORD. Many unique and strong accents, combined with what was already not a Gina type of movie = snooze sesh on the couch with the puppy. I crashed out after about 20 minutes into the movie- party animal 😉

This morning, we’re off to a legendary brunch at my nana’s.


Be back later with a re-cap 😀

Have a very happy Sunday, and Happy Easter to those of you who are celebrating today <3 Thank you for being one of the many blessings in my life.

    Oooh, I love that movie…but I definitely had to watch it quite a few times to figure out what they were saying.

    oh wow, pineapple icecream… pineapple is one of my fav fruits, did you buy the icecream or make it? Then just add some unflavored whey?

    After trying out and LOVIN the gluten free brownie recipe you posted from your bros class, I’m def up for making more of your recipes!

    Happy Easter to you too Gina! I hope it is awesome!

    Happy Easter Gina!! I love great dane puppies 🙂 if they weren’t so expensive to feed we’d have a great dane!

  5. Kate on April 24, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    Have a happy Easter!

    The puppy is adorable. I have normal-sized puppies who eat like crazy [not to mention chew every shoe they can find], so I can only imagine how much a Great Dane will eat..

    Happy Easter Gina!

    Luna is adorable (and so is Viesa of course!) — well Bell too 🙂

  16. Katie on April 24, 2011 at 3:08 pm

    I can’t figure out whether “Happy Eater” was on purpose or an accidental typo… ha either way it’s appropriate! Happy Easter!

    • Fitnessista on April 24, 2011 at 7:44 pm

      nope, on purpose 🙂

  17. Sana on April 24, 2011 at 3:10 pm

    Have a lovely day <3

  18. Dana Marie on April 24, 2011 at 3:23 pm

    That’s funny, I think the same thing happened to me when I tried to watch that – snooze – HappY easter it’s a GORG day in NY – what what? Finally

  19. Dana Marie on April 24, 2011 at 3:25 pm

    oh and that Sangria which is delicious – you totally wouldnt think because it’s like grocery store stuff – but I used to have it with my Roman friend from graphic design class on our pizza night. Nom

  20. Mary @ Bites and Bliss on April 24, 2011 at 3:28 pm

    Awwwe isn’t she darling with her bunny ears. 🙂 Happy Easter!!

  21. Sheena on April 24, 2011 at 3:34 pm

    Happy Easter! Is that bottled Sangria any good? I’ve picked it up at the store many times but always put it back since I’m not sure how it stacks up against the freshly made stuff.

    • Fitnessista on April 24, 2011 at 7:43 pm

      it was delicious! my madre took it over to the house and i was excited to try it 🙂

  22. Chris on April 24, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    Aw Luna is SOOOO cute!! I have a 120 lb black great dane who I rescued at 8 weeks. They are the best dogs ever!! They actually don’t eat as much as people think. Mine eats 4 cups of food a day – not much more than your average lab. Glad you had a fun night! Happy Easter!

  23. Joelle on April 24, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    Happy Easter to you! We went out to lunch. Great restaurant on the ocean. I had a delish salad topped with few fried butternut squash raviolis. To die for.

  24. Katie on April 24, 2011 at 4:45 pm

    My brother and his wife named their cat Luna! *After they named their other one Tuna. They didn’t realize at first that the names rhyme haha*

  25. Dee on April 24, 2011 at 5:06 pm

    Happy Easter to you too Gina!

  26. Ashley @ Feeding Ashley on April 24, 2011 at 5:19 pm

    Happy Easter!
    The puppy is so adorable, Luna seems to fit.
    I love Snatch, but it is kind of difficult to understand what they’re saying.

  27. Lindsay on April 24, 2011 at 5:28 pm

    Taco bars are the best! You can never go wrong.

    My neighbor has a puppy that is about twice the size of my dog, who is basically full grown. I have a 3.5 lb chihuahua, so he’s the little guy compared to everyone. He sure doesn’t seem to believe he is though! Small dogs are so much fun. 🙂

  28. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on April 24, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    Haha don’t worry, I fall asleep in the middle of movies too. 😉

    Happy Easter Gina!

  29. mi-an on April 24, 2011 at 7:40 pm

    Happy Easter!!! i felt the same way about Snatch but if you keep watching it, it’s actually pretty good! oh that tj’s almond butter with sea salt…sooo soo good!!!! i made some amazeballz with it, added some pure vanilla extract. so ommmazing esp after my power yoga! 🙂

    • Fitnessista on April 24, 2011 at 7:42 pm

      it’s my fave for amazeballz too 🙂

  30. Jenny (Fit Girl Foodie) on April 24, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    What a cute little doggy 🙂 Happy Easter!

  31. Christin@purplebirdblog on April 25, 2011 at 10:26 pm
