Like a Yogi in the Sun

Hi friends!! How’s your Saturday been?


I started off my day for the long-awaited return of an old friend:

breakfast cookie dough cereal!


Using Nuttzo for the nut butter and pomegranate-blueberry goat’s milk kefir for half the milk (almond for the other half) took it OVER THE TOP.

After my foodgasmic breakfast, I enjoyed a lovely 90 minute yoga class in the plaza.


Class was just what my body was craving- it felt SO good to stretch. The instructor, who also teaches at the U of A rec, had such an amazing playlist- fun music makes a huge difference.

After yoga, it was time to meander around the farmer’s market.


There was a ton of lovely produce, but since I haven’t planned out this week’s meals, I didn’t purchase anything yet.

The best part of the market:


Getting to cuddle and hold a baby goat!!!

I want one.

goat (2)

She was 3 days old and doesn’t have a name yet. I was in love.

I mentioned yesterday that I’m more committed to eating meals at home like the good old days, so before work, I grabbed all of the snacky stuff I had left in the casa.


As far as lunch goes….


Looks like I’ll be starting tomorrow?


Hope you have a great night and I’ll see ya after the “Detox is Over” party Smile

    P.S. The outside yoga looks amazing. How fun to move it outside of a studio!

  4. Michelle on February 19, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    Baby goat!!! Baby goat!!!! So cute!! When I visited Maui, my friends took me to a goat farm (helllooo fresh goat cheese!) and we got to see the babies. I would have stolen one if they let me hold them! 🙂

  5. Lizzy on February 19, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    I’m so jealous of everything in this post Gina! I wish I could walk around in the warm sunshine and hold baby goats. 😀

  8. Mindy on February 19, 2011 at 4:45 pm

    omg the baby goat is so adorable! I’m about to head to a yoga class now. I bet having one outdoors would be nice!

  9. Lili on February 19, 2011 at 4:46 pm

    GOATT! so cute.

  10. jen @ taste life on February 19, 2011 at 4:49 pm

    Yay for a “detox is over party”! I can’t believe it’s been 30 days, that went by fast. For me. Because I could still eat nut butter and oatmeal the whole time you couldn’t 🙂

    I need your headband.

  12. China on February 19, 2011 at 4:58 pm

    Gina, do the lulu headbands work well? I need a good fitness headband, but I have a small head and fine hair, so they ALWAYS slide off. I’ve never found a brand that works, but I haven’t tried the lulu ones yet. I need a product review from you! 🙂

    • Fitnessista on February 19, 2011 at 5:00 pm

      *most* of the time.. i only use the lulu ones with nonstick backing, but they even slide off my head every now and again. out of everything i’vtried, they work the best and are great for days like today when i didn’t do my hair 😉

  13. Katie on February 19, 2011 at 5:09 pm

    How stinking cute that little baby goat is!!! So sweet!

    I love those seaweed snacks, I have been chowing down on those like crazy, I like to put them in a salad beast for a topping too ; )

    Have a great detox over party !

    katie : )

  14. Chandrika on February 19, 2011 at 5:24 pm

    Send some sun our way!!!! Yesterday I had sunshine and saw the grass for the first time in months, I thought spring was on the way. Today we have blowing snow again! 🙁

  15. Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete on February 19, 2011 at 5:36 pm

    That baby goat is so adorable! My brother in law was seriously considering getting one for a pet. I just think their little hooves are the cutest thing ever.

    Enjoy your detox-is-over night!

  16. Lauren @ Fun, Fit and Fabulous! on February 19, 2011 at 5:57 pm

    Oh that yoga class looks amazing!! I love doing yoga outside! 🙂 I hope you have fun at your party!

  17. Allison @ Food For Healing on February 19, 2011 at 5:58 pm

    that baby goat is so adorable.
    i wish we had nice weather like that here with an awesome farmers market year round. But instead we are sitting around -25C/-10F, and have to bundle up pretty good. 🙁

  18. Tina on February 19, 2011 at 6:06 pm

    Outdoor yoga looks amazing!!! That baby goat is so cute! I think bella would get jealous if you brought it home! lol

  19. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on February 19, 2011 at 6:19 pm

    the artichoke and heart of palm salad..oh that sounds delish. ive never even noticed that one at TJs. here’s to eating up random household foodie finds though!

    And the yoga, lovely!!

    The 3 day baby goat…oh, that is beyond precious! I can’t wait to see you cuddling a baby one day..seriously, I can just feel the Mother Love in you seeing that pic of you and that little goat 🙂

  20. Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun on February 19, 2011 at 6:20 pm

    Awww! Cute baby goat. Goats are so adorable for some reason.

  21. Ashley @ the fit academic on February 19, 2011 at 6:29 pm

    haha, love it! Start tomorrow – no big deal! : )

  22. Emily on February 19, 2011 at 6:30 pm

    where are your sunglasses from? so cute…

    • Fitnessista on February 19, 2011 at 7:18 pm

      target! i buy all of my sunglasses there- that way, when i lose or sit on them, no biggie 😉

  23. Elizabetth on February 19, 2011 at 6:53 pm

    I’m about to embark on a not eating out challenge. I’m going to give it up for Lent. Should be interesting, but I think that once I get into the swing of things it won’t be that bad. I have gone long periods of time without eating out before, because of broke-ness or what have you and it was only bad for the first week or so. It’s the Starbucks/Dunks habit that is going to be hard to kick….

  24. Katherine: Unemployed on February 19, 2011 at 6:54 pm

    who doesn’t love cuddling a baby goat

  25. lindsey on February 19, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    Outdoor yoga sounds fab! I wish we had something similar in this area.

    omg! baby goats are so cute!

  26. J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) on February 19, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    Awww, that baby goat is darling!

  27. Sana on February 19, 2011 at 7:44 pm

    I always want to eat at home but something just happens to catch my eye! I want a pet goat too!

  28. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on February 19, 2011 at 7:47 pm

    I love baby goats! I was super sick/stressed out one day so my friend took me to feed her baby goat. It was so relaxing and special. Have a great rest of your Saturday!

  29. Mary @ Bites and Bliss on February 19, 2011 at 7:50 pm

    It’d be so nice to be able todo yoga outside like that!

  30. Caitlin @ TPL on February 19, 2011 at 8:10 pm

    O my gosh so cute! I can’t wait for farmers markets in the mid-west to start. Have fun at your party, congrats!

  31. Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn on February 19, 2011 at 8:17 pm

    Have fun party hardying, girl! Haha totally fine, TJ’s can count as home cooking:)

    Slash that goat is too cute! I keep telling my parents I want a teacup piggy for my birthday:)…

    Omigah, I die.

  32. Courtney @ The Granola Chronicles on February 19, 2011 at 8:23 pm

    My husband and I visited a goat dairy farm today – crazy that you posted a little baby one on here!

  33. Laura on February 19, 2011 at 8:28 pm

    The goat is adorable. What was she doing at the farmer’s market, besides being really cute and all.

    Do most Whole Foods have a juice bar? I assumed they did and when I went to my local one and they didn’t have one I was really disappointed.

    • Fitnessista on February 19, 2011 at 9:11 pm

      she was there with the family who sells goats milk soap 🙂
      not all of them do- i wish!!

  34. Annette @ enjoyyourhealthylife on February 19, 2011 at 9:34 pm

    HAve a fab time at the party-YAH for the end of detox!!

  35. Jess@atasteofconfidence on February 19, 2011 at 9:45 pm

    my saturday was pretty good, but the weather was definitely not as lovely as yours!

  36. Rachel on February 19, 2011 at 9:51 pm

    It’s hard to get back in the habit of eating at home when you are just worrying about you. When the pilot returns it may be easier.

  37. Claire @ Un Bello Aperitivo on February 19, 2011 at 10:11 pm

    I want the goat too!!! Have fun at your party!

  38. Annie D @ Annie's Simple LIfe on February 19, 2011 at 10:12 pm

    OMG that’s a goat! Hahaha!!

  39. Jaclyn on February 19, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    I’m SOOOOO envious you got to hold and play with a baby goat. It’s super extremely cute, indeed! 🙂
    Happy Detox party- you did awesome, girl!

  42. CaSaundra on February 20, 2011 at 8:36 am

    Ahh who knew goats were cute?! That baby goat is adorable!! Would the Pilot mind if you got one lol?!

    • Fitnessista on February 20, 2011 at 9:44 am

      i was talking to him last night (he saw the pic) and said when we get a house, i can get one!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

  43. Ali on February 20, 2011 at 9:23 am

    I love that headband!! It’s so cute. And how fun is that goat, adorable.

  44. kathleen on February 20, 2011 at 2:45 pm

    oh, a farmers market. i can’t wait until may when the farmer’s markets start back up again in the north east… sigh.

  45. Jenn on February 20, 2011 at 9:38 pm

    Hi Gina, I am a new reader of your blog, well off blogs in general, I love yours! You have great energy and just seem to be a great gal. I was wondering what business you bought in tuscon, I know you are a personal trainer so it peaked my interest when you said you bought a business. Thanks and keep up the fun inspirational bloggin’ :)- jenn

    • Fitnessista on February 20, 2011 at 10:03 pm

      thank you!! <3 it's a dance fitness business- i'll go into more detail this week 🙂

  46. kate@ahealthypassion on February 20, 2011 at 10:27 pm

    that baby goat is adorable ! and whatever kind of smoothie is, it looks amazing!

  47. Mo on February 21, 2011 at 9:18 am

    I know I’m late to comment – catching up! We had another 9 inches of snow so my weekend was spent attempting to clear our driveway. Husband was out of town so I had to fill in for his braun. Looks so beautiful there – and looks like you had just the perfect day. That little goat! In a perfect world I would raise goats and chickens – goat cheese and fresh eggs would be wonderful. Guess I gotta keep on playing the lottery! Take care – Mo
