I want to swim in guac

Hey everyone! HAPPY WEEKEND! πŸ˜€

Sorry for going MIA on ya yesterday. I was frantically trying to pack for Ft. Lauderdale and had a training appointment before Ashley and I got on the road.

Lunch was a haphazard yet delicious event.

Salmon bits with mustard

happy skull

Roasted zucchini and eggplant


I dropped Viessy off at the kennel –she LOVES it there!- trained funny quotes lady and we started our drive to civilization.

I brought the crack


(single serving packs!! Sawweeeeeeet..especially since I could eat a whole box full)

and we stopped in Orlando at Bass Pro Shop (for an xmas gift), which I’d never been to before.

Neither had Bella, and they let me take her in and walk around with her! She was so happy


We dropped Bella off at my auntie’s casa, then stopped at Chipoddle for some dinner


Vegetarian burrito bowl with lettuce instead of rice, black beans, grilled veggies, pico, hot salsa and double guac.

Their guac is so fresh and decadent. I want to swim in it πŸ˜€

We also grabbed some Bizzle for caffeine since it was a late night driving:


Tall ginger green tea. I love the Bizzle holiday cups! πŸ˜€

We finally got here around midnight and I slept like a baby in my Westin Heavenly bed:


Ashley is going to an esthetics show today and I’m going to take a yoga class, shop, work on the other website and just enjoy being in civilization πŸ˜€

The pool is beckoning to me as well πŸ˜‰


Hope you all have a wonderful Saturday and I’ll see ya tonight with a re-cap of the shenanigans πŸ˜€



Something to do: Make sure to enter the POM juice giveaway if you haven’t done so already! A case of POM juice could be yours πŸ˜€

    You picked a great weekend to be in South Florida. The weather is so beautiful and breezy right now! Where did you find those single serving packs of Mary’s? I could eat the entire box in one sitting, so I could really use those. πŸ˜‰ Enjoy your weekend, and I hope you get to go to Sublime for dinner!

    • Fitnessista on November 7, 2009 at 10:02 am

      i got them at the health food store! very exciting because i have no portion control whatsoever when it comes to the full boxes πŸ˜€
      i’m going to look at sublimes website right now and see if maybe i could get take out for lunch after yoga!

      • Fitnessista on November 7, 2009 at 10:04 am

        and i just saw that i’m on THE SAME STREET super close to sublime, chilling at barnes and noble πŸ˜€ it looks like they’re only open for dinner though so i thinking hot bar for lunch and hopefully ashley will want sublime for dinner too πŸ˜€

        • Jessie (Vegan-minded) on November 7, 2009 at 10:41 am

          Great! The hot bar at that Whole Foods is pretty good. Sublime used to be open for lunch years ago, but now it’s just dinner. Enjoy your day of good eats. πŸ™‚

  2. Leslie on November 7, 2009 at 9:28 am

    Hey there! I love your blog! Was wondering if you eat rice?

    • Fitnessista on November 7, 2009 at 10:01 am

      only brown rice.. i won’t touch the white stuff πŸ™‚

  3. chrysta on November 7, 2009 at 9:28 am

    I hope you have a fabulous trip. Its beautiful there. I know what you mean about the crackers. They are crazy good! For me though, its granola. I can tear through that stuff like there’s no tomorrow. I have to really watch it when Im around it! haha. Anyways I hope you enjoy your yoga class and have a super vaca!! Have a great day!

  4. Jocelyn on November 7, 2009 at 9:30 am

    mannn oh man. I wish I could jump in a pool like that right now but I’m sure most pools here have frozen over already llol

  5. Mara @ What's For Dinner? on November 7, 2009 at 9:41 am

    Be still my heart… double chipoddle guac?! We are sistahs from another mother πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on November 7, 2009 at 10:01 am

      hahah YES! but i knew that already πŸ™‚

  6. VeggieGirl on November 7, 2009 at 9:45 am

    Nothing better than DOUBLE guac, lemme tell ya πŸ˜€

  7. Diana on November 7, 2009 at 9:52 am

    I’ve never tried guacamole… Maybe I should?
    Ahhh, that pool… πŸ˜€ Have fun!

    • Fitnessista on November 7, 2009 at 10:00 am

      you’ve never tried guacamole?!? i’m thinking you should jump on the guac boat pretty soon here πŸ˜€ it’s SOOOO GOOD!

  8. laura dishes on November 7, 2009 at 9:52 am

    That sounds like the perfect day to me… have so much fun!

  9. Leslie on November 7, 2009 at 10:16 am

    i love guacamole!!!! Always get scared to eat too much because of the calories and fat!!! But they are so good for yoU!

    • Fitnessista on November 7, 2009 at 10:19 am

      i used to be scared, too, because of the high fat content. then i learned about healthy fats and started putting avocado on everything πŸ˜€

  10. Mama Pea on November 7, 2009 at 11:00 am

    How DO they make that guac? It is unreal. Mine is never that rich and creamy. And how do they get it to stay so green?

    I hope you enjoy every second of your glorious weekend!

  11. Janna (Just Flourishing) on November 7, 2009 at 11:17 am

    I want to swim in that guac too, it looks so good!

    So jealous of your lovely weekend getaway! Have fun!

  12. fittingbackin on November 7, 2009 at 11:25 am

    I want those salmon bites! And that skeleton plate! too cute – hope you have a great weekend!

  13. K on November 7, 2009 at 11:50 am

    That bed looks so fluffy, I want to dive in right now (I’m so tired)! I hope you guys enjoy your weekend getaway πŸ™‚

  14. Kristie Lynn on November 7, 2009 at 11:57 am

    Seriously, the Chipotle in Madison is so stingy with the guac! I ask for double guac and I get half of what you have in that picture, if that πŸ™ Happy for you though; guac is wonderful πŸ™‚

  15. leslie on November 7, 2009 at 11:59 am

    Yes!! So good! Put a half of one left over from the other day in my salad!! Amazing! So good! Girls, I’m trying to lose these stubborn last five pounds!! AHH!! Staying strong though. Any tips would be appreciative! You inspire me!

  16. Katie on November 7, 2009 at 12:02 pm

    I had that same bowl at Chipotle last night! πŸ™‚

  17. andrea garcia on November 7, 2009 at 12:10 pm

    Hi Gina!
    Could you post how you dehydrate your eggplant to make it like bacon? I’ve been looking EVERYWHERE FOR IT, and alot of sites add various ‘extras’ that I don’t want to use….
    LOVE reading how your days are going – enjoy FL! WOOP IT UP!ha!;)

  18. mmclaughlin on November 7, 2009 at 12:20 pm

    Don’t you just love Westin hotels?! They are my favorite. I always try to stay in them if I can, no matter where I am. The heavenly bed is exactly that! And I didn’t try guac until I got married, and now I can’t get enough of it. I make my own all the time, and I get so frustrated when the grocery store doesn’t have avocados. :o)

    • Fitnessista on November 7, 2009 at 2:29 pm

      they’re my favorite too! westin, loews or sheraton are always a good bet πŸ˜€

  19. Holly on November 7, 2009 at 12:46 pm

    Hey girl! I am a Ft Lauderdale girl, welcome! Sorry it’s not that gorgeous of a day out today, the wind kinda makes it a not so great beach day. But if you want to do some retail therapy, head to The Galleria mall, you won’t be disappointed! Definately not like the Valdosta Mall (trust me, I know that sad mall, too! ewwww) Enjoy your stay!

    • Fitnessista on November 7, 2009 at 2:29 pm

      i’m on my way there noooooowwwww! wahoo πŸ˜€

      • Fitnessista on November 7, 2009 at 2:29 pm

        PS your city is fabulous πŸ˜€

  20. dorothy on November 7, 2009 at 1:09 pm

    those salmon bites look yummy! esp on that cute plate πŸ˜‰

    i justhad roasted eggplant and zucch for brunch today, too! i actually started buying eggplant afters eeing you make eggplant bacon. thanks for getting me hooked! πŸ™‚

  21. Shelby on November 7, 2009 at 1:27 pm

    Single serving sizes?! That is so awesome! Finally a healthy cracker to-go instead of those digusting 100-cal packs. Bleh. I still haven’t tried Mary’s Crackers but I will soon. Hopefully I can control myself around the box. I’m with you on the no portion control thing!

    It’s been far too long since I’ve had chipoddle…mmm.

  22. Paige (Running Around Normal) on November 7, 2009 at 4:18 pm

    Mmm I got Chipotle today too. I have no idea how they get their guac so good, but it’s amazing!

  23. Erin @ Living and Loving In L.A. on November 7, 2009 at 4:26 pm

    My Shiba loved the kennel too, but now my family has a Chihuahua and we could never leave her there!
    I love guac so much. It’s delish. I wonder if we could put out a plea for someone who works there to secretly give us the recipe?!?!?!?

    • Fitnessista on November 7, 2009 at 6:33 pm

      SERIOUSLY πŸ˜€ i would be making it all the time!

  24. Des on November 7, 2009 at 4:46 pm

    Love your blog! What color is your nailpolish in that pic of you holding the Bizzle?! Perfect fall color!

    • Fitnessista on November 7, 2009 at 6:33 pm

      thanks girl! it’s a burgundy OPI color.. when i get home, i’ll let you know what the name of the shade is!

  25. Laura J. on November 7, 2009 at 5:18 pm

    oh man, I would love to swim in a pool of chipotle’s guac!! sooo good!!
    and where did you get those delectable looking salmon bites??

    • Fitnessista on November 7, 2009 at 6:32 pm

  26. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on November 7, 2009 at 6:22 pm

    That sounds like such a fun weekend. I could totally swim in guac, too.

  27. Jenna on November 7, 2009 at 6:29 pm

    have a great day.

  28. Katie on November 7, 2009 at 6:35 pm

    I heart Guac and shopping! I’m not a huge Chipotle fan though :/ Hope you spend too much money so Pilot never leaves you alone again πŸ˜‰

    • Fitnessista on November 7, 2009 at 7:41 pm

  31. Kelly Michelle on November 7, 2009 at 7:12 pm

    I’m in Miami, so close but so far, enjoy your mini vacay!

    • Fitnessista on November 7, 2009 at 7:40 pm

      ahhh! we thought about driving out there but didn’t feel like driving anymore :/

  32. Meg on November 7, 2009 at 7:23 pm

    Mmmm guacamole. I could eat it everyday! But wait, did I miss something? What’s “the other website”?!

    • Fitnessista on November 7, 2009 at 7:41 pm

      it’s a little sumthin sumthin i’ve been working on πŸ˜€ hopefully i’ll be able to launch it soon!!!

      • Meg on November 10, 2009 at 10:10 am

        Oh that’s so exciting! I can’t wait to hear about it!!!

  33. Light Delight with Tou Tou on November 7, 2009 at 8:01 pm

    Haha ! you are having those salmon bites again! and on your skull plate!! guess its really good weekend food:))

  34. Carol @ The Hummusphere on November 8, 2009 at 12:47 am

    oh! reading this post has reminded me of something i’ve been meaning to ask. i’ve recently developed a crazy obssession with mary’s gone crackers!! (what a tragedy, right?) i know you to be a fellow crack(er) addict so i’m curious as to which flavor is your favorite.

    have a great weekend!

  35. Jessica on November 8, 2009 at 6:52 pm

    G$ !! Have you tried any of the other crackalicious Mary crackers?? I’ve got a box of the onion flavor in my room and just adore them!! Reminds me of an everything bagel!! YUM.

    But Sseeing your holiday starbucks cups make me soooo happy! I really need to buy myself something from there soon, so that I can properly get in on the holiday spirit….right?? πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on November 9, 2009 at 8:44 am

      omg i LOVE the onion flavor. probably my favorite- so good! πŸ˜€
      and yes, you need a holiday bizzle stop ASAP πŸ˜‰
