Only with vino

Hey everyone! Hope your Friday has been glorious 😀


(Little Bella licks her lips as she waits for a treat)

Mine was, because I had INDIAN!!!


I decided to roll with something different- the veg jalfreezi. I had it a while ago and just like last time, it rocked my face off.

I also had some of Megan’s spinach and veggies… so good!


Someone told me that all Indian food must be accompanied by wine. It aids in digestion or something like that  ;-P


To rewind to this morning, I started the day with a lovely fruit bowl (1/2 cantaloupe, 1/2 peach, 2 kiwis… didn’t end up eating the peach because it was SOUR!)


I was a little slow moving to get to the gym, but then I remembered that I had a new shirt! Instant motivation 😀


It was a breezy 50 minutes on the elliptical with the new issue of Women’s Health, and then did back and biceps (Bent over row-deadlift combos, lat pulldown, stability ball back extension, 21s, v-rope hammer curls) and had a post-workout smoothie of 1/2 frozen nanner, hemp milk, brown rice protein, Stevia and cinnamon:


Someone else was waiting for me at the casa when I got home…


He had a PT test today (hence the goofy outfit…not as hot as the flight suit haha), and ran a mile and a half in 9:45. Crazy, huh?!? My pilot, who NEVER runs (but used to.. and was pretty hardcore) is quite the speed demon. I was happy he came home early today 😀

I had a lovely chat with a beautiful bloggy friend and was in the process of texting that super awesome raw girl when my phone suddenly shut off and when I turned it back on, ALL of my texts were gone!!!!!! The pilot decided we needed to get me a new phone ASAP. After spending 30 minutes at AT&T, we left empty-handed because not a single phone in the store was pink. Yes, I’m that girl. 😉

Afternoon snack:


(AB,B and J on Ezekiel with the other half of banana on the side)

A lot of other random unpictured snackage occurred throughout the day, but it was nothing too crazy (raw flax crackers and 2 dried figs).

I listened to you guys:


We went to Books-A-Million after dinner (yes, wild Friday night at the Indian restaurant and bookstore) and I got a copy 😀 I hope I can finish it by the end of the weekend- I’m DYING to see the movie!
Well I’m out—I’ve got a morning run planned and there was some talk of us going paddle boating tomorrow?!

See ya soon <3

    LOL @ goofy outfit. So, right after i posted on ur blog abt not reading the book b4 the movie, I went and bought it! I can't wait to read it :)!

  2. Chloe (Naturally Frugal) on August 14, 2009 at 11:14 pm

    Cute new shirt! Let us know what you think of the book, it's one of my all time faves.

    P.S. What are 21's?

    I have a pink BlackBerry, so no judgment from me. 🙂

    At least the pilot's outfit isn't as silly looking as the Marine guys we have running around all over the place here. Little green shorts = HOT on base, but just plain goofy anywhere else.

    Hope you enjoy the book!

    aw sorry about your phone 🙁 That is craziness!

    The indian food looks amazingggggggg oh my gosh. I've never tried anything like that before! Loving your workout top!

  5. wholebodylove on August 15, 2009 at 12:57 am

    Go Pilot! Mallard surprises me with his times as well. He can go for months with no running and then blow me away. How do they do that?

  6. Baroque Diva on August 15, 2009 at 1:14 am

    LOL I am sooooo you, too! I have had my pink razor with Verizon for 3 years and altho it's totally dying, I refuse to get a new one until they finally come out with something else pink and cute!!

    Also, did you see the ads on tv for School of Rock tonight? LOL Your "rocked your face off comment" cracked me up!

    I am dying to try your Indian meals, but my local restaurant doesn't offer those dishes! Any recipes you can recommend that you've tried for a homemade version?

  7. Erin of Care to Eat on August 15, 2009 at 1:47 am

    Gina you're such a gigi (girly girl), I love it 🙂
    I can't really talk, given that I have a pink rhinestone Helly Kitty cover for the Blackberry, ya know?
    Love books. Heard that one is a gem!

  8. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on August 15, 2009 at 2:53 am

    Enjoy your book…I got an inbox coupon/reminder from Border's that they are having 30% off all cookbooks til Mon as well as 40% off paperbacks. One per customer. I'm sure there has got to be a catch but if you like to read like i do, savings is savings!

    Phone drama sucks. Period. Sorry you're dealing.

    And your smoothies always look yum!

  9. Kristin on August 15, 2009 at 6:51 am

    Well I happen to believe EVERYTHING is better with vino 😉

    So glad you got the book it is amazing!!!


  10. Erica on August 15, 2009 at 7:38 am

    The new shirt looks even cuter on! Loving it. Glad you got some indian in. You afternoon snack with the nut butter, nana, and bread looks so yummy right now. Congrats to the pilot on the PT test!!! Hope you two have a nice weekend 🙂

  11. Rosey Rebecca on August 15, 2009 at 8:23 am

    New clothes are motivation for everything!! Those dogs are so cute! Thanks for mentioning that there's a new women's health issue out! I need to pick that up!

  12. runjen on August 15, 2009 at 8:35 am

    I really need that shirt! It's so adorable. Who makes it?
    And I LOVE that pic. of the puppers!! Adorable.

  13. itsawrapteacher on August 15, 2009 at 8:38 am

    I just got the book yesterday too. I'm on pg. 10 but I'm determined to finish before I see the movie. Happy reading!

  14. Julie on August 15, 2009 at 8:53 am

    oooh I'm excited to hear about the book! You're totes a fast reader if you can finish it in a weekend! Have fun today!

  15. Tay on August 15, 2009 at 9:13 am

    Gina, the Army PT uniforms are much worse! I love the new shirt, it looks great on you. That book is amazing, I just read it while I was in Mexico on vacation and it is definitely in my top five books of all time. Enjoy!

  16. Krista on August 15, 2009 at 9:15 am

    You must let us know what you think of that book!

    Your pilot is a true speed demon!!!

  17. VeggieGirl on August 15, 2009 at 9:35 am

    HAHA!! You and The Pilot are a riot 😀

    Aww yay!! SO glad that both Gena and I were part of your fabulous Friday. Muah.

  18. shelby on August 15, 2009 at 11:28 am

    Everytime you say "it rocked my face off"…I laugh out loud! So funny!

    The Time Traveler's Wife was so depressing! But I thought it was cute. A bit confusing, but sweet. I want to read the book even more now!

  19. Kristi (sweet cheeks) on August 15, 2009 at 12:00 pm

    hahah, I love the pic of the pilot! That is a great running time. I am impressed!

    And once again, I am extremely jealous of your indian food. I will have to stick to my Amy's frozen indian meal, haha.

    Hope you have a good run!!

  20. Lainie on August 15, 2009 at 12:02 pm

    Mmmm – your indian food looks SO GOOD. I love indian food maybe as much as you do? Really cute shirt! I hope you get your pink phone sometime soon 🙂

  21. K from ksgoodeats on August 15, 2009 at 12:46 pm

    I totally understand the need for a pink phone! My new phone doesn't come in pink so I have to get a cover for it 😉

    The Pilot is Speedy Gonzales!!

  22. Emily on August 15, 2009 at 12:58 pm

    Seriously need Indian food ASAP!!!!

  23. MarathonVal on August 15, 2009 at 2:54 pm

    Haha, I'm always "that girl" too that wants to cool colored phone, but when I am phone-less I am usually too impatient to wait! Props for being patient 😉

  24. Haleigh on August 15, 2009 at 5:33 pm

    I love pink phones, sigh.. if only I could get a new one. LOVE the new shirt girl! Indian food as always looks super tasty! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!!


  25. Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter) on August 15, 2009 at 6:18 pm

    Gina, you crack me up with your love of pink. 🙂

    CD and I always end up at bookstores on date night. No shame in that.

    My phone died 2 weeks ago, and I have yet to replace it. It's been kind of freeing not having a cell phone, but when I get back to Nashville, I'll have to get your phone number so we can text. I'm a texting fool.

    I'd love to know what your favorite raw girl had to say about this weekend's festivities. 😉

  26. AzLinda on August 16, 2009 at 12:05 pm

    Seriously need to try indian food now!!

    Love the new shirt 😀

    Can't wait to hear what you think of the book!

    Funny, I was just watching a you-tube video about the benifits of dry brushing….lol Looks very interesting.
