Hi from the sky

Hi friends! Howโ€™s your Friday going?

Iโ€™m sky-blogging right now โ€“gotta love gogo in flight wifi ๐Ÿ™‚


Itโ€™s actually the time we were supposed to be at the Tucson airport, and weโ€™re already more than halfway to Philly!

How did that happen?

I totally goofed up what time I *thought* we were supposed to leave.

The Pilot loved it, haha.


He had just arrived back from home from a massage this morning, I was super schweaty from just finishing TurboFire and he said โ€œHey, what time does our flight leave?โ€

โ€œ4:50. I think.โ€

โ€œMaybe you should check.โ€

โ€œNah, Iโ€™m pretty sure. If you need to go into work for an hour or so thatโ€™s cool- Iโ€™m going to shower, get my hair done and then come home and pack.โ€

โ€œPlease check what time our flight leaves.โ€

I checked on my phone and discovered our flight was leaving at 1:15.. not 4:50. It was 11:20 when this happened.

It was a little bit of a frenzy to take the fasted shower known to mankind and get packed โ€“Iโ€™m sure I forgot critical things.. for sure including my vitamins and some pajamas- but we made it. Barely.


Flight buddies ๐Ÿ™‚

We actually had a second to grab some food at the Tucson airport, so I rolled with a large seaweed salad:


and a vegetarian sushi roll.


Iโ€™ve also had some dark chocolate and raw nuts, but Iโ€™m ready for some *real* food. In my dreams, a gluten-free cheeseless pizza and a large green juice would appear right about now.

    I’ve totally done that before. Thought my flight was at 8, but it was actually at 7. Got to the airport at 6:45. Fortunately it was pretty empty and I made my flight but that was a SUPER stressful trip through security!

  2. Cait @ Beyond Bananas on August 19, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    Majahh props to you for getting your stuff together adn getting to the airport on time. I would have totally freaked out and likely missed me flight! Hope the rest of your flight is smooth!

    • Fitnessista on August 19, 2011 at 9:24 pm

      i was tempted to sit on the floor and laugh, and say forget it.

  3. Kim on August 19, 2011 at 9:22 pm

    Very impressive that you made that flight! Have a great time in Philly!

  4. SAL on August 19, 2011 at 9:23 pm

    That’s a beautiful photo of you and hubby–you look gorgeous! Frame it!!

    • Fitnessista on August 19, 2011 at 9:24 pm

      aww thank you! that’s sweet of you to say because i showered so quickly and feel blah with no makeup ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. girl in the pink on August 19, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    I love your nail polish!!! Great color.

    • Fitnessista on August 19, 2011 at 9:29 pm

      thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Amy @ My Life as a Lazy Girl on August 19, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    I always forget what times my flights are. I never check til the last possible minute, which usually means I’m running through an airport and hoping security lines aren’t long. Glad you made on on time! Enjoy HLS!

  7. Katie @ Plates and Paste on August 19, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    Ha, I had a flight flub myself lately. My bf and I are planning a trip to Portland,OR and he went ahead and asked for the days off I told him to take. But then I realized that our late flight back home wouldn’t get in until the next day…not too big of a deal…just another day off, but eyes rolled ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga on August 19, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    Girl get your snooze on and put the laptop away ๐Ÿ™‚

    I do love me a good wifi blogging sesh though, too. I feel so PRODUCTIVE when I do it…but then I get really tired and can’t keep my eyes open. lol

    Be careful with the Gogo Wifi. They were charging my card EVERY MONTH for 4 months AFTER I had cancelled it and I had to call them three times to get them to take my card off being auto-billed. Just watch your statement so you don’t get auto-renewal billed every month. Not tons of money, but they were sneaky with my billing situation which was a grrr.

    Have FUN at HLS!!!!

  9. Kris | iheartwellness.com on August 19, 2011 at 9:46 pm

    LOL, this sounds like something I would do….and something Ryan would say to me “please just check”

    Im happy to hear you are high in the sky en route! Enjoy!! Dang I need to be a better blogger and understand that these events come up! jeez…


  10. Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance on August 19, 2011 at 9:49 pm

    At least you ended up catching the flight haha! I can’t say that I would’ve even TRIED to get it if I were you :X

  11. J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) on August 19, 2011 at 9:57 pm

    Now that is a close call, and also happens to sound like something I would be involved in. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Something about that veggie sushi roll looks SO DELICIOUS! Like, I want to make it right now. I think it’s the bright white chewy rice by surrounding the creamy avo. Want!

    Enjoy your trip!

  12. SaraRM on August 19, 2011 at 9:57 pm

    You look fabulous without makeup!

    I definitely would have freaked out. My husband would have KILLED me ha!

  13. Lyndsi @ Lyndsi and David on August 19, 2011 at 9:57 pm

    I *always* feel frantic when I fly, even if I have plenty of time. I’m paranoid that I won’t hear the announcements or I’ll be in the wrong terminal… blah! But I still love flying for some reason.

  14. Shaya on August 19, 2011 at 10:09 pm

    might i just say how absolutely beautiful you look? pregnancy totally agrees with you ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Hillary on August 19, 2011 at 10:11 pm

    I probably would have had a meltdown and cried. Good for you for getting out the door!!

    Love that nail color? Mind sharing what it is??

    • Fitnessista on August 20, 2011 at 2:51 pm

      it’s sally hansen perfect manicure, and i have no idea what the color name was :/

  16. kara on August 19, 2011 at 10:15 pm

  17. Ash @ Good Taste Healthy Me on August 19, 2011 at 10:27 pm

  25. hillary on August 20, 2011 at 12:06 am

    i live in tucson too and have to say we have the BEST airport for late-to-airport people!! i am not sure there is a better airport anywhere for a city of our size. it is so stress-free and you gotta love the healthy options at that place where you got your snacks! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Fitnessista on August 20, 2011 at 2:50 pm

      i couldn’t agree more! thank goodness for our short security lines

  26. Lauren on August 20, 2011 at 12:28 am

    Check out Sweet Freedom if you get a chance! It’s completely gluten free and they have a tomato pie. No idea how good it is, but atleast it’s gluten free pizza?!

    • Fitnessista on August 20, 2011 at 2:33 pm

      whoo hoo!! i’m all over that

  27. Meghan Doll on August 20, 2011 at 1:10 am


  28. Ali @ urbanfruitbat on August 20, 2011 at 1:46 am

  29. Heather on August 20, 2011 at 2:29 am

  33. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on August 20, 2011 at 6:57 am

    Haha I love how laid back you are about going on flights… I usually triple check my time and get to the airport like 3 hours early. ๐Ÿ˜› But at least you made your flight! Have fun this weekend!

  34. Katie on August 20, 2011 at 7:46 am

    Cute post! ๐Ÿ™‚

  35. Kathie on August 20, 2011 at 10:02 am

    LOVE the nail color. Gina, you have to tell me what color that is!!!!! :o)

    Downward facing eye lids…hahaha..SO CUTE!!!!!

    You two look great in that picture!!!! I’d frame it also!

    Your situation sounds like something that would happen to me. hahaha!!

    Enjoy Philly!!!! I am SO bummed!!! I live like 10 minutes from there and REALLY wanted to attend the Summit to meet you and a few other bloggers but I wasnt fast enough and tickets sold out. =( Then again, im major preggo and would probably look funny and be a stand out with all of you. haha

  36. Leslie Wingate on August 20, 2011 at 10:04 am

    Seaweed salad? That’s totally new to me. Looks super healthful. Went to Austin on vacay and had my first costco trip. Got two boxes of seaweed snacks. lol

    Glad you made your flight! Safe travels. ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. mary on August 20, 2011 at 10:53 am

    You might find you’ll become less of a ‘last minute’ person, the more situations like that you run into!

    • Fitnessista on August 20, 2011 at 2:31 pm

      haha i hope so

  38. Leanne (Bride to Mrs.) on August 20, 2011 at 2:47 pm

    I love your nail polish color! What one is it?!

    Have fun in philly!

    • Fitnessista on August 20, 2011 at 2:56 pm

      thanks! i can’t remember the color name ๐Ÿ™

  39. Tracy on August 20, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    Since I noticed a lot of people asked (and because I’m a nail polish hoarder), that LOOKS like the color “Gray by Gray” in the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure line. I wear that color all the time! I love this line because even though the polish can be a bit staining when it’s removed, the color lasts forever on me.

    P.S. – Have fun in Philly! I’ve heard it’s a blast. Definitely take this chance to enjoy some time away from every day life’s seemingly never-ending to do list!

    • Fitnessista on August 20, 2011 at 3:12 pm

      it’s sally hansen, but it’s “teal” something. i can’t remember the exact name
      i’m definitely enjoying the little break ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. Hayley @ Oat Couture on August 21, 2011 at 6:58 am

    Ah haha I have definitely done that before too! Such a horrible feeling when you realise your mistake! Eek! Well done for making your flight!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  41. Katie G. on August 23, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    Love the nail polish color! I am always so paranoid about missing my flight that I overly check the times, and get there earlier than neccessary every time…my bf gets annoyed with me, but then I buy him lunch and drink while wait together in the airport ๐Ÿ™‚
