Out with the old….

Hey everyone!

Thank you so much for all of your feedback on the new bloggy ๐Ÿ˜€ I announced the unveiling via Twitter and I have to say Iโ€™m way stoked with how well it came out. I consulted the people at Triskele (after hearing good things about them from Mama Lovin) and I have to give them MAYJAH props for helping me switch over my entire set of archives (477 posts!). They also gave the bloggy a cleaner and easier-to-navigate kinda feel. If anyone needs help pimping their blog, check out Triskele ๐Ÿ™‚

I still have quite a few things I want to do (like add recipes, workouts, FAQs, etc) but I know have the capability to DO IT so Iโ€™m way excited!

To start the morning, I had a lovely sludge:


It had 1 frozen nanner, coconut water, sprouted brown rice protein (Iโ€™ve been using Sun Warrior and like it a lot), Stevia, cinnamon, sea salt and a big olโ€™ handful of spinach.

No walk for the puppies this morning (sorry, puppies!) because the pilot didnโ€™t have to be in until 2:15 pm and we had a lovely lazy morning.

We went to Best Bizzle and bought my new camera (!) which wonโ€™t get here until next week, and then had Indian buffet for lonchi.

I had mint chutnet, cucumber salad, chickpea salad and a lentil and veggie dish.


The way Sam sets up the buffet is pretty awesome- one side is totally vegetarian and the other side includes the meat dishes.

I bid adieu to the pilot and hit up the gym for some cardio and legs.

50 breezy minutes on the elliptical followed by side lunges, kettleball crunches, leg extensions, 1-leg hip raises and plie squats.

When I got back to the casa, I had some random snacks before starting to get ready to meet the girls. (1 tbs unpictured almond butter and a handful of Mary’s Crack con hummus)

For dinner, the girls and I had McAlisterโ€™s and instead of my usual veggie chili with veggies, I got the Mediterranean flatbread with no cheese.


It was ok, but it was one of those meals that could easily be made at home and it would taste 100x better.

After dinner, we saw The Time Travelerโ€™s Wife. Um, total bawlfest. I let two tears slide out before I talked myself out of it, because Iโ€™m one of those people who canโ€™t stop crying once they start. It was an interesting exercise in self control to say the least ๐Ÿ˜‰

I did like the movie (a lot!), but even though I havenโ€™t finished it yet, I like the book more.

Well Iโ€™m going to take these puppies out but my ABnormal blogging schedule will resume tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜€

Have a fabulous evening <3

  14. Paola on August 21, 2009 at 7:36 am

    Congrats on the new look, it seems much easier to navigate and is quite good looking too! I like the idea of the easy to find recipes, etc. Just a word on the workout page – I tried opening it both on Internet Explorer and Mozilla, and in both browsers the alignment of a lot of photos is all weird… you might want to check on that!

  15. Paige @ Running Around Normal on August 21, 2009 at 7:38 am

    Love the new layout! Nice job, lady:D I’m happy you found a camera you liked, too ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Ada on August 21, 2009 at 8:36 am

    Hi Gina!
    I absolutely love your new blog, I am so jealous, I really want one like yours! Please tell me the details about it??
    I want to see The Time Travelers Wife as well, looks wicked good ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Laura W on August 21, 2009 at 9:10 am

    I liked the old one, but love the new one! Everything flows nicely & it’s very easy to read!

    I love Rachel McAdams… she never seems to take on too many movies at once and really plays each role so well. I’m so excited to see the movie- now if only my book would get here (AMAZON) so I can start reading… ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Courtney on August 21, 2009 at 9:19 am

  21. Kristi on August 21, 2009 at 10:18 am

    Love the new blog! Glad it’s still pink ๐Ÿ™‚ I knew it was going to be a crying movie when the Sandra Bullock preview came on! I was bawling before the main movie even started!

  22. megan on August 21, 2009 at 11:08 am

    Hey fitnessista!
    I remember a looooooong time ago that you made some blender concoction for breakfast that had cold cereal and cranberries, but I can’t seem to find it on your blog anywhere when I search! Do you have any idea wat I’m talking about by any chance?

  23. Ashley on August 21, 2009 at 11:20 am

    the new layout is great!! i’m really pleased to see the ‘breakfast cookie’ tab as i plan on making one tomorrow. now i won’t have to extensively search for the ingredients – woot!
    have a great weekend!

  24. Angharad on August 21, 2009 at 11:49 am

    Love the new look of the blog, especially this commenting section! Ooh it’s so fancy!!
    Yay for gettin’ your indian food in and yay for having the pilot to hang out with all morning – love when that happens :0)

  25. Stephanie on August 21, 2009 at 4:35 pm

    I’m lovin the new layout as well, looks awesome!!!

  26. EatingRD on August 21, 2009 at 5:18 pm

    ok, I just love your new bloggie!!! It looks very sleek and easy to navigate. I really need some blog help! I may have to check out triskele. Can they just do web design or does it have to include hosting? How is their pricing?(you don’t have to answer that if you don’t want to). I would love to read the Time Traveler’s Wife, I was wondering if the book or movie would be better, thanks!
