Nothing Can Keep Me Away

From the Indian food buffet πŸ˜‰


Heh heh.

The pilot got home last night and I think he could tell from looking at me that I needed to get out of the house. I was pale, in the same jammies I had slept in the night before (nice, right? haha), watching House Bunny for the second time, and clutching a box of tissues. I had been sick and cooped up all day!

He was so sweet and took me on a little field trip- I even braided my hair and put on a different outfit πŸ™‚

We went to Bizzle:


(grande Refresh tea)

and to get Indian for dinner.

I pointed out what I wanted and the pilot scooped it into the To-Go container… I didn’t want to get the serving spoons all germy.


+ a giant piece of roti (the puppers got the other half)


Perfection πŸ˜€

I watched SYTYCD while the pilot did work stuff, then we called it a night πŸ™‚

This morning’s bfast was the usual bfast cookie dough cereal.

cookie dough

I’m obsessed πŸ˜€

The plan for the day:

-GTL = Groceries, TurboFire (if I feel up to it), Laundry

-Training appointments (if I don’t have to cancel them againβ€”I really don’t want to get anyone sick)

-Blog post on how to clean-up a recipe (I’ve gotten requests for Mexican recipes and carrot cakeβ€”anything else you’d like to see?)

Have a wonderful day!

  2. Kristina on August 5, 2010 at 9:58 am

    hope you’re feeling better! πŸ™‚

    glad you got your indian!

  3. Marilou @ Mostly Healthy on August 5, 2010 at 9:59 am

    Spices is all you need to kill those germs πŸ™‚

  4. Little Bookworm on August 5, 2010 at 10:00 am

    Hope you are feeling better now. The Indian food looks lovely and the breakfast cookie dough cereal. πŸ™‚

  5. Lauren @ BIOCHEMISTA on August 5, 2010 at 10:07 am

    Hope you feel better soon ma dear! πŸ™‚ When I have a cold I almost ALWAYS lose my sense of taste. What a shame it would have been if that happened just before your Indian food feast!!!

    LOVE the GTL reference btw. HAHA I like the TurboFire option SO MUCH BETTER!!! πŸ˜‰


  6. Megan (Braise The Roof) on August 5, 2010 at 10:08 am

    Aw, being sick is no fun! But the pilot is so sweet to take care of you. πŸ™‚ I just imagined you braiding your hair in pigtails like a little girl! (that’s what I used to do, anyway!)

    • Fitnessista on August 5, 2010 at 10:12 am

      it was a side braid, but close πŸ™‚

  7. Jenna on August 5, 2010 at 10:11 am

    Yayy! I hope you continue to feel better πŸ™‚ I definitely have those days sometimes where you can just tell I’ve been cooped up in the house too long. Haha. I’ve also really wanted to try indian food since I’ve been seeing it on your blog weekly, but there are no restaurants around me! I guess it’s time I whip up some recipes or buy some Amy’s indian food! Maybe you’ll see me next wednesday πŸ˜‰ Also, could you try & do a “clean up” on a cinnamon roll recipe? I think that’d be really cool! Try to make it vegan if you can, or make vegan substitutions. Thanks! πŸ™‚

  8. Holly @ couchpotatoathlete on August 5, 2010 at 10:12 am

    Oh the Pilot is so nice!!! I hope you feel better today. I’m sure the spicy Indian food should help your throat.

    And I love The House Bunny. I thought it was hilarious!

  9. Barbara on August 5, 2010 at 10:23 am

    yes on the recipe clean up – alfredo sauce;-). thx.

    • Dynamics on August 5, 2010 at 3:07 pm

      Yes, please.

  10. jenna on August 5, 2010 at 10:23 am

    I hope you feel better!!!!

    that is so nice of you not to touch the buffet utensiles!! I’m really suprised not that you are nice! that is but that you would think to do that! πŸ™‚ vegan brownie points for you!

  11. Cyndi @ Weightless Life on August 5, 2010 at 10:47 am

    The Indian food you get always looks so tasty. I’m going out for Indian tomorrow and I cannot wait.

  12. Amanda on August 5, 2010 at 11:02 am

    Feel better!

    Side note question: What people food do you feed your fur babies? My shiba has the pickiest tummy, one day she can have a piece of chicken and the next its no bueno.

    • Fitnessista on August 5, 2010 at 11:21 am

      peas, carrots, strawberries, garbanzo beans, turkey, chicken, peanut butter and small amounts of cheese and yogurt

      • Dynamics on August 5, 2010 at 3:09 pm

        cottage cheese and green beans is good too.

  13. Amanda-The Nutritionist Reviews on August 5, 2010 at 11:29 am

    Your indian food always looks so good! Have you ever tried the brand Tasty Bite Indian food? I just got some in the mail for review and was wondering if it is any good?

    • Fitnessista on August 5, 2010 at 11:41 am

      never tried it- let me know what you think!

  14. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on August 5, 2010 at 11:33 am

    Aww the Pilot is lovely!! Glad you got your Indian food – it wouldn’t be a Wednesday without it! Hope you’re feeling better today. Rest up! πŸ™‚

  15. Ellen @ Undercover Runner Eats on August 5, 2010 at 11:47 am

    I can’t wait for your carrot cake recipe! Carrot cake is one of my favs.

  16. Erin Elizabeth on August 5, 2010 at 11:50 am

    feel better!! I had a question…do you use the same amount of oats in your bfast cookie dough cereal as you do in your bfast cookie? So about 1/3 cup or 1/2 a cup or something? Thanks!

  17. Heather (Heather's Dish) on August 5, 2010 at 11:52 am

    you just can’t stop true LOVE πŸ™‚

  18. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on August 5, 2010 at 11:52 am

    Indian would be the perfect pick me up for me as well. I hope you feel better today. I’ve had the sickies recently too.

  19. Megan @ Healthy Hoggin' on August 5, 2010 at 11:58 am

    Hope the Indian food made you feel better! I love eating warm, spicy stuff when I’m sick, too!

    Can’t wait for a healthier carrot cake recipe– that’s my fave! πŸ˜‰

  20. Karyn on August 5, 2010 at 11:58 am

    what a stellar husband you have! hope you’re feeling much better today πŸ™‚

  21. Ilana on August 5, 2010 at 12:05 pm

    omg all I wanted last night was Indian food … could not find a delivery place for the life of me! What good is living in NYC if I can’t get exactly what I want delivered when I’m sick?? what a wonderful hubby you’ve got sweetie – and I hope you’re all better!!

  22. A Teenage Gourmet on August 5, 2010 at 12:13 pm

    I want Sun Warrior so badly, today IS my lucky day! πŸ™‚

    • A Teenage Gourmet on August 5, 2010 at 12:15 pm

      Question though, is there only chocolate available? What other flavors, if not? And, are they still good?

  23. Paige @ Running Around Normal on August 5, 2010 at 12:18 pm

    Haha – hopefully those Indian food spices will help you feel in tip top shape! I had some delicious baighan barhta the other night and thought of you! Can’t wait til HLS!

  24. Shanna, like Banana on August 5, 2010 at 12:36 pm

    Love that you still want Indian food when you’re sick. I EAT like a madwoman when I’m sick..nothing can keep me away from it. I never understand when people tell me they couldn’t eat for days…huh???

  25. Sarra H on August 5, 2010 at 12:40 pm

    LOL at your “GTL”! I hope you’re feeling better!! the indian food looks aaaamaaazinggg!

  26. Dorry on August 5, 2010 at 12:41 pm

    There’s nothing better than your favorite restaurant meal in the comfort of your own home! Take-out for the win. πŸ™‚

  27. Krystina on August 5, 2010 at 12:50 pm

    Feel better. <3

  28. LisaG on August 5, 2010 at 1:00 pm

    I knew the Pilot would come through. How about some cleaned up cheesecake; any flavor will do?

  29. Kelly on August 5, 2010 at 1:03 pm

    What a good hubby! I have a giant craving for Indian lately…all because of you! I guess I will have to give in soon ;).

    What about a clean up post about sandwiches? And even salads could be good! Or eating out. You always seem to know exactly what to order to eat healthy when eating out and I wish I did!

  30. Liz @ Tip Top Shape on August 5, 2010 at 1:16 pm

    Wasn’t SYTYCD amazing last night??? I thought Kent and Neil’s contemporary was amazing. Everyone has had a friend that soured and the emotions throughout were perfect. Travis has definitely become my favorite choreographer. Well..after Nap and Tabs πŸ˜€

    Hope you’re feeling better!! I’m sure the Indian helped πŸ™‚

  31. Jenn @ So Very Fit on August 5, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    I am so jealous of all the Indian food you’ve been eating! I haven’t had any in ages. Maybe I’ll have to convince the BF to go this weekend hehe. πŸ™‚

  32. Alexis {Mission: Ambition} on August 5, 2010 at 1:49 pm

    Hope you’re feeing better soon πŸ™‚ My husband keeps wanting me to try Indian food (he’s been obsessed since he spent December in India) but I haven’t yet.

  33. VOcanas on August 5, 2010 at 1:49 pm

    Nice Pilot! I hope you feel better soon.

    I’d love to see you clean this Mexican Casserole recipe up:

    I used to make it a lot in college, and I’ve been thinking about it lately.

  34. Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine on August 5, 2010 at 2:18 pm

    Indian food sounds like the most wonderful remedy, how sweet of the pilot! Hope you’re feeling better love πŸ™‚

  35. Anya @ Fitness & Sunshine on August 5, 2010 at 2:55 pm

    I hope you feel better soon! πŸ™‚

    That take out looks scrumptious. πŸ˜‰

  36. Laury @TheFitnessDish on August 5, 2010 at 2:57 pm

    Hope you’re feeling better!!! Nothing like Indian Food to open you up!!

    I am totally GTL today too “Gym-Training-Laundry”

  37. Melissa G on August 5, 2010 at 3:11 pm

    Hey Gina- I know you’ve made lasagna in the past, do you think you could do a traditional healthy lasagna recipe makeover? Doesn’t have to have meat in it, but if it does that’s fine too. Thanks! Feel better!!!

  38. Katie @ Healthy Heddleston on August 5, 2010 at 3:36 pm

    Aww yay Pilot, sounds like he’s really taking care of you!

  39. Laura J. on August 5, 2010 at 3:43 pm

    I took Zumba for the first time last night! It was freakin awesome!! Now I get the obsession with it. It’s such a fun class!! πŸ™‚

    I hope you start feeling better soon! This thing is really hangin on to you. Looks like the Pilot is taking good care of you tho πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on August 5, 2010 at 4:47 pm

      i’m so glad you liked it!!

  40. Kaitlin With Honey on August 5, 2010 at 3:46 pm

    I hope you feel better soon! I am glad, though, that you’ve got the Pilot taking care of you in the meantime. πŸ™‚

    I’m sure that spicy Indian food helped to clear your sinuses! πŸ˜‰

  44. Lorin on August 5, 2010 at 11:00 pm

    So for the breakfast cookie dough cereal, you just add milk and sliced banana to the already made cookie?

    • Fitnessista on August 6, 2010 at 9:39 am

      yes but when i make the cookie, i don’t use the smashed banana. just oats, protein and almond butter, then add lots of milk and sliced banana
