Movie Night

Heyyyyy Open-mouthed smile Happy Sunday! How’s your day going?

Viesa is spending her morning curled up in a bed that is a little too tiny for her.

She’s cozy like that Winking smile

Last night, I made a giant batch of my sweet potato black bean chili to go with the jalapeno cornbread from the Farmer’s Market.

Even the hardcore carnivores loved it, and the cornbread was RIDICULOUS.

After dinner, I met up with my friend Michele for cocktails and a movie. We shared some Riesling and watched Social Network.

It was so nice to have a girls night and the movie was amazing. If I can stay awake for an entire movie past 9pm, you know it’s a good one Winking smile

MY OTHER VIDEOS

This morning, my body is screaming at me from yesterday’s yoga class, so I’m thinking about taking it easy and walking the dogs around the p-a-r-k.

But first, breakfast Open-mouthed smile

Have a great day and I’ll see you laterrrrr <3

    The Social Network is awesome, isn’t it? I just thought the whole story was facinating- Facebook has become such a phenomenon that it’s hard to believe it was started by a college sophomore! I watched two movies last night too: Say Anything and Love and Other Drugs. Can’t remember if you’ve seen the latter yet, but if not I think you’d really like it!

    Best movie evaaaa. The meal looks TDF, too! Tell Viesa I say hi:)

  3. Christin@purplebirdblog on December 12, 2010 at 12:46 pm

    Do you have to spell p-a-r-k in front of your dogs. We can’t even say OR spell walk anymore… it has turned into “W” or “You wanna take em?” if we are talking about it in doggy presence without wanting to alert them! 🙂

    Viesa looks so much bigger than my shiba, Asuka! She’s about 9 months old and is 18 pounds 🙂 Your dinner looks so good and warm! This is my first year living somewhere that has actual seasons (gotta love military life lol!) so I’m diggin the stews and such currently.

    • Fitnessista on December 12, 2010 at 12:51 pm

      viesa is 20 lbs- she’s not that big, it’s a bella-sized bed 🙂

    I love that quote!
    Our bodies are amazing- I’ve seriously never NOT been able to do something, but its the truth, the mind stops us! Its amazing how far people are capable of going with out a mental block!

    love the eats + the dog 🙂

  11. Sarra on December 12, 2010 at 2:32 pm

    i’ve been wanting to make that soup for a looong time, it looks soo amazing, but is there a way to make it without the slow cooker?

    • Michelle on December 12, 2010 at 2:51 pm

      I’m not Gina but I make it on the stovetop all the time! I throw everything in the pot and boil for 10min then simmer for around 15! It’s delish!

      • Sarra on December 12, 2010 at 3:21 pm

        yay awesome!!! thanks 🙂

      • Fitnessista on December 12, 2010 at 7:45 pm

  12. Heather (Heather's Dish) on December 12, 2010 at 2:52 pm

    i really like social network…it’s crazy to see the “real” story behind it all!

  13. Layna on December 12, 2010 at 3:05 pm

    Are you keeping Viesa now? I hope so, she is so adorable!

    • Fitnessista on December 12, 2010 at 7:44 pm

      no, but i’m having an amazing time with her before she goes to her new family

  14. grocery goddess jen on December 12, 2010 at 3:06 pm

    I loved that movie, too! The whole thing flew by so fast. I love Viesa. I want to hug her.

    • Fitnessista on December 12, 2010 at 7:44 pm

      she would hug you back 🙂 she’s a little cuddle bug

  15. holly @ couchpotatoathlete on December 12, 2010 at 3:09 pm

    Viesa is so adorable — like a little friendly fox 🙂

    I still haven’t seen that movie — I’m waiting for Netflix.

    Have a good day!

  16. jen on December 12, 2010 at 3:39 pm

    I haven’t seen that movie yet, but it along with everything else is in my Netflix queue. I have no idea what I did before Netflix and DVR 🙂

    Have a great day!

    Viesa is so cute. I am so glad she is going to a friend and you will be able to visit/get updates. As a guide dog puppyraiser, it helped me and my family to know who has the dog and that we had the option of visiting. Puppysitting is a great option too.

  18. Averie (LoveVeggiesandYoga) on December 12, 2010 at 4:31 pm

    I want to see that movie! But so far, havent gotten around to it yet but I am glad you stayed awake for it..I’ve heard it’s really good!

    The salad beast w/ those shrooms on it looks so good!

    And I hope you have a great rest of your nite 🙂

  19. Mimi on December 12, 2010 at 4:31 pm

    Viesa looks like a little fox!

  20. Kelly on December 12, 2010 at 4:52 pm

    I wanted to tell you that I made your sweet potato and black bean chili last week, and it was a big hit with my meat-eating men. So good and so easy to throw together.
    Thanks for a great recipe.

    • Fitnessista on December 12, 2010 at 7:43 pm

      so glad you liked it!

  21. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on December 12, 2010 at 5:50 pm

    I haven’t seen that movie yet and really want to!

  22. Katie on December 12, 2010 at 5:51 pm

    Want to see that movie! I miss movie nights with friends ! omg how funny your doggie is! Hey she must be comfy!

  23. Ali on December 12, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    I thought that movie was really interesting. I think I’d have to watch it again to really know what I think.

  24. Paige @Running Around Normal on December 12, 2010 at 6:03 pm

    VIESA!!!! is a doll. That is all 🙂

  25. Allison on December 12, 2010 at 6:13 pm

    I am exactly the same when it comes to movies! I find it so hard to stay awake watching a movie at night if it is just so-so.

  26. Michele on December 12, 2010 at 6:32 pm

    Gina, this is kinda random – but do U think U could post your fav indian Rice dish? I’ve been lookin 4 a good and spicy one & figured U were the best source. Thx 🙂

    • Fitnessista on December 12, 2010 at 7:43 pm

      sure! maybe for indian food wednesday?

  27. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on December 12, 2010 at 7:11 pm

    Love that quote! It’s so true that we can become anything and do anything if we set our minds to it. 😀

    I haven’t seen that movie yet. I can’t wait until winter break starts so that I can be a couch potato and catch up on all the movies I missed this semester!

  28. Jaclyn on December 12, 2010 at 7:23 pm

  30. Cara Craves... on December 12, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    I had a great Sunday, it was my birthday!

    I am looking forward to seeing that movie…
    I ALWAYS fall asleep in movies, sometimes even in the
    theater…Ha!

  31. Namaste Gurl on December 12, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    I made a yummy black bean chili, TOO! Funny how us fellow bloggers think alike– as they say, “great minds think alike!” 🙂

  32. setbb98 on December 12, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    The chili looks delicious. I will def have to remember that quote when I am giving my presentations–I hate public speaking! thanks

  33. April @ Crazy Fabulous Life on December 13, 2010 at 9:18 am

    Ooh, I love Buddha! 🙂 I have a collection of Buddha figurines.

  34. Sara on December 13, 2010 at 5:41 pm

    So sorry about Vies-y 🙁 I can totally sympathize, we had to give away a rescue dog we were fostering to adopt. Although we didn’t have him as long as you have Viesa it was absolutely heartbreaking. We rehabilitated him for 8 months and in the end he needed way too much help etc. Ach. On a bright note, it sounds like Viesa is getting an AMAZING home! What a relief.
