    Giiirl is that socca or pancakes?! It looks delish, and I need to get on my spring shopping ASAP because I am a believer in karma and good clothing energy will bring spring faster:)

  11. AllieNic @Frisky Lemon on January 27, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    I’ve recently started drinking a LOT of kombucha…and the Trilogy flavor is my favorite! I drink it when I feel like I’m getting a cold, or when my tummy isn’t digesting well…I don’t really need an excuse…I just love it!

  19. Bec on January 27, 2011 at 1:47 pm

    I have already been purchasing spring clothes and we have a ton of snow and months left of winter still! I am very interested in the iphone credit cart adapter. It would make my job so much easier! Ok going to research it now 🙂

  20. Gina on January 27, 2011 at 2:12 pm

    I’m new to your blog and I love it! You’re very motivating! I was wondering how to order the mesquite you use in your breakfast cookie…it’s different than BBQ mesquite, obv, because you said it’s sweet. Thanks!

    • Fitnessista on January 27, 2011 at 2:33 pm

      they have it on amazon- navitas naturals has a great one

  21. Christine (The Raw Project) on January 27, 2011 at 2:20 pm

  22. Carolyn (Life in the postcard) on January 27, 2011 at 2:34 pm

    Lovin’ the new spring purchases! Great taste Gina! 🙂

    What am I lovin’ this week: your class, the weather, and deciding not to stress about silly things that won’t be important 6 months from now.

  23. Erin H on January 27, 2011 at 2:50 pm

    My boss and his wife have their own honey bees and he was kind enough to bring me in a jar (bedazzled with jeweled bees and all). It is AMAZING! There is something so different about it compared to the store bought honey in the cute bear jar that I just love. I’ve become an addict in the past few weeks, I put that ish on everything!

    Their next project is goats….cheese??

  24. Ashley on January 27, 2011 at 2:52 pm

    Our lists are very similar: Socca, Trilogy, + raw honey. Ohhh yeah! Also on the list, my new juicer. 🙂

  25. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table on January 27, 2011 at 2:56 pm

    I saw a women use that iPhone CC feature at a festival I went to recently. It emailed me the receipt! Convenient + Paperless = Awesome.

  26. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on January 27, 2011 at 3:22 pm

    Wow I am late to this party….100 comments on a non-giveaway post already 🙂

    Love the credit card feature! Omg I don’t have a need to process them but if I do…I am sooo getting on board w/ an iphone. Even without the need, I should get on board w/ the iphone. When it comes to Verizon, i am!

    Have a great trip back east. FUN!!!!

  27. Lauren @ Fun, Fit and Fabulous! on January 27, 2011 at 3:34 pm

    What a cute cake! I am loving Jusyins Almond Butter and butternut squash chili!!

  30. Joelle (The Pancake Girl) on January 27, 2011 at 4:33 pm

    Hmmm I’m loving the awesome new oatmeal bowl my sweet coworker bought me, my warm apartment on this snow day, and the chance to make some pancakes now for dinner after seeing that yummy breakfast plate you pictured!

    Oh, and I’m loving today’s episode of Oprah- she dedicated the whole episode to military families: http://www.oprah.com/showinfo/The-Bravest-Families-in-America. About time!

  31. Ashley on January 27, 2011 at 4:35 pm

    I also picked up a Kombucha today after a llooong hiatus. It felt like I was coming up for air when I take the first sip!

  32. Gill (snaxandthecity) on January 27, 2011 at 5:21 pm

    i’m lovin the fact that tomorrow my American goodies arrive in the post! yay!

  33. Meg on January 27, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    Hi there. I love reading your blog. Today was a snow day for me on the east coast and I was able to catch the Oprah Show. Not something I would typically watch but the topic was military families. My heart just broke listening to the stories of those families. I was shocked to hear the statistic that 1% of American families bear the burden of defending our country. And to realize just how far the burden extends within those families! Its something I admit I have not thought of before today. I like many others have been preoccupied with my own life. My daily thoughts consist of the following: How am I going to keep my job while making it through graduate school? How do I be there for my husband while he is in medical school? How do I take care of my aging father? These are all challenges that I gladly take on. There is one more challenge that I would like to take on and that is reaching out to those military families that take on so much so that I have the freedom to pursue a graduate education, so that my husband can achieve his dream of being a doctor, and that I can have a decent paying job that allows me to help support my aging father.

    The first thing I wanted to do was extend my gratitude towards the military families that I know. And although I do not know you personally, that does include you. Thank you to you and your husband for taking on more than your fair share of responsibility to make sure that our country remains a pillar of strength and honor in this world. Thank you!

    I look forward to this new challenge of reaching out into my community and impacting the lives of those who sacrifice so much. I would like to encourage all of your readers to step outside their own circumstances and see what part they can do to help shoulder more of the burden, even if it only starts with a simple but very heart felt “Thank You!”

    • Fitnessista on January 27, 2011 at 8:01 pm

      thank you so much- your sweet comment made my day <3

  34. Kristin (Cook, Bake, Nibble) on January 27, 2011 at 5:45 pm

    Mmm, home made coconut butter, I need to make some of that!

    Things I’m loving… Smoothies packed with green goodness, your amazeballs, Crazy Sexy Diet, bootcamp, and local Kombucha from here in Toronto (except for the fact that it’s $5 a pop. ouch.)


  35. lauren on January 27, 2011 at 6:10 pm

  37. Mandy (theamazonprincess) on January 27, 2011 at 6:16 pm

  38. Stephanie on January 27, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    I’m loving…

    – my husband who is so very far away from me
    – feeling GOOD and STRONG and HOPEFUL after a very emotionally difficult few months
    – playing Wii DDR

  39. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on January 27, 2011 at 7:57 pm

  44. The Get In Shape Girl on January 31, 2011 at 8:22 pm

    I love love love raw honey. it’s too expensive to make it a regular purchase, but I became addicted when visiting my parents who get it from a bee-farmer friend. I mixed it with dijon mustard and coated chicken breast in it before grilling it, or adding chopped walnuts and baking.
