Happy Soda Bread Day

Hiiiii 😀 Happy St. Patty’s Day!

This day always reminds me of my Irish dancing days, and dancing the entire length of the St. Patty’s Day parade (about 2 hours). The soda bread waiting for me at the end was the best reward ever 😉

I’m back in Valdosta!


I have to say, it’s beautiful here (more beautiful now that I don’t live here anymore, haha). It’s nice to hear Southern accents again and see TREES. I missed trees 😀

When I got to the hotel last night after such a whirlwind travel day,


I crashed hard.


Woke up this morning,

munched a Larabar


and went to the base gym for a lovely solo spin sesh.


(Base got new bikes!)

My workout was based on the Spring Fever workout I posted a couple of weeks ago with much of the same music. Such a blasty.

Post-workout juice:


Carrot, beet, ginger from the Main Squeeze.

Well, I’m off to get ready…


It’s adventure time! See ya later today 😉



Any festive St. Patty’s Day food in your future? There may be some green Bailey’s in mine 😀

    Isn’t it funny how we learn to appreciate things after we take a step away from them? Have fun today. LOVE the wedges!

    No St. Patrick’s Day food for me today – I got the days mixed up and ate my green foods yesterday 😉

    I think I celebrated hard enough last Saturday at what Philly college/post grad kids call “erin’s express”. it’s dangerous! haha

  8. Mac on March 17, 2011 at 2:45 pm

    I love soda bread, but haven’t had it in years! I need to make that soon, maybe today…

  9. Dana Marie on March 17, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    sleeping beauty…that looks like a super cute spring ensemble you have layed out -werk it out.

  10. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on March 17, 2011 at 3:21 pm

    Green Bailey’s in your future sounds like a plan!

    Glad that you made it! And I love the sleeping shot…too cute 🙂

    Being able to appreciate a place MORE once you don’t actually live there…yep. I agree with that one!

    Have fun seeing all your friends and old stomping grounds!

  11. Angela @ MyPinkyToes on March 17, 2011 at 3:25 pm

  15. Clare @ Fitting It All In on March 17, 2011 at 4:33 pm

    GINA I had no idea you irish danced! I did too for 13 years of my life, and still play the IRish Harp!

    Since I have to work today, I celebrated by eating whole wheat soda bread and vegan colcannon…

    • Fitnessista on March 17, 2011 at 6:53 pm

      that is so awesome! i miss it, but it was hard work!
      whole wheat soda bread sounds amazing

  16. Mary @ Bites and Bliss on March 17, 2011 at 4:42 pm

    I had a ton of green food today already! And tonight we’ll be serving traditional Irish food. As for drinks, I’m not quite olf enough just yet. 😛

  17. Laura @ prettylittlewords on March 17, 2011 at 5:41 pm

    Crazy over that outfit, Gina! I can’t wait to get my hands on some warm weather dresses! Unfortunately our definition of “warm” is the 66 degrees we had in Chicago today 😉

  18. Genn on March 17, 2011 at 6:27 pm

    Hi Gina! I just love your blog. I found it through my sister who is a reader. I have been trying to eat more organically, and workout regularly, (and lose the last of my baby weight from having two girls)! I love your recipes and ideas, and you are so darn cute. Reading your blog helps keep me motivated, so thank you for sharing!

    • Fitnessista on March 17, 2011 at 6:53 pm

      thank you so much for reading and for saying hi 🙂

  20. Emma (Namaste Everyday) on March 17, 2011 at 6:37 pm

    I miss spinning! I can’t afford a gym membership here in New Zealand, and I actually don’t think I’ve even heard of classes being offered! That outfit looks so cute, have a great day!

  21. Theorist on March 17, 2011 at 7:12 pm

  23. Ann on March 17, 2011 at 7:34 pm

    Hi Gena,
    Just wanted to ask…I eat salmon alot during the week. I often buy the 5 oz. portions (vacuum sealed) and finish off the WHOLE thing (even when I simply can’t eat anymore…I have to eat it if its on my plate…plus I guess I have to gain some weight so…) anyway, is 5-6 oz of salmon at ONE sitting too Much?

  24. Carolyn (Life in the postcard) on March 17, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    Adorable outfit-I love it all. Go get him girl!!!

  25. Racheal on March 17, 2011 at 8:09 pm

    I live in Phoenix and it’s funny how you don’t realize the lack of trees. Then you travel and you can’t believe all the trees and green 🙂 Have fun!

  26. Nicole on March 17, 2011 at 8:52 pm

    Such a cute outfit!

  27. Heather Eats Almond Butter on March 18, 2011 at 12:18 am

    2 hours of Irish dancing? Wow, you must have had some kick ass leg muscles!!! Love watching Irish dancing – it’s so beautiful and completely mesmerizes me.

    Glad you made it back to GA safe and sound Gina. I know you must be so excited!

    Sorry I missed you in AZ, but we’ll be back. 🙂

  28. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on March 18, 2011 at 7:28 am
