Punch, Kick, Shake

Hey guys! Happy Fashion Friday 😀 Hope you’re having a wonderful morning <3 I’ll be back later today with the fashion style I’m loving this week 🙂

Last night, bootcamp was amazing -I love teaching that class- and I met the pilot at home for a 15-minute dinner:

dinner (2)

Here are the steps for this 15-minute meal:

-Pre-heat oven to 375* and start boiling water for the pasta

-Add the chicken to the oven with Newman’s Own Mesquite-Lime sauce and set timer for 15 minutes

-Add the pasta (I used 1.5 servings of brown rice penne) to the pot to boil

-Start the salad: I massaged some kale in a large bowl with Garlic Gold vinaigrette, extra virgin olive oil, rice wine vinegar, Garlic Gold crunchies, sea salt, cayenne and grape tomatoes

-Heat a skillet for the egg- I wanted an eggstada for my protein since the pilot was having chicken; check the pasta, drain it and spray with olive oil so it doesn’t stick

-Add the pasta back to the pot, reduce heat to medium and add 1 T butter (I used Earth balance) and 1/2 C almond milk

-Crack eggs into the egg skillet (3 egg whites for me)

-Add a handful cheese of choice to the pasta (he likes parmesan), stir quickly to melt the cheese, and black pepper

-Flip the egg

-Plate everything up 🙂

Eggstada and kale salad for me:

Kale salad, penne alfredo and mesquite-lime chicken for the pilot:

So easy and insanely delishhhh 🙂

MY OTHER VIDEOS

I also enjoyed a heaping bowl of peach protein ice cream for dessert 😀

Amazing.

We also filmed this little video for ya’ll so that you can kind of get an idea of what TurboFire is about. (This is the Fire 30 video I reviewed yesterday)

*Keep a lookout for a special cameo somewhere in there 😉

 

Pretty fun, huh?

See ya later today with that Fashion Friday post <3

xoxo,

Gina

    Gina, you make that look so easy and fun! 🙂

    Wow, you are super coordinated! I would NEVER be able to follow a workout like that no matter how much they broke it down! But it looks like soo much fun!

  3. Emily on July 10, 2010 at 3:12 am

    Watching you do this makes me feel super unfit! Maybe you just convinced me I need to do more than just running, as this does look kinda fun… And your pilot is hilarious!

    Haha, I love your video! The Pilot is a good sport. Looks like this must be a fun set of workout videos–it’s surprisingly hard to find routines that are both fun in the dance department and an effective workout, but I can see that there’s a good amount of shakin’ it goin’ on. Looks like the set is appropriately named. 🙂

    That video looks FUN! But, what about those who are coordination challenged?? haha Is it taught like a dance class?

    Love the pilot’s cameo!! 🙂

    Hey Gina,
    just wondering..when you make egg whites do you throw out the yolks? i used to until i felt extremely wasteful throwing away half the egg, so i had to start using packaged whites.

      hey emily,
      yes, i put them down the disposal. either the garbage disposal eats it, or i do, and i don’t want all of the cholesterol (i’ll have yolk a few times a week for the nutrients, but use the whites for protein). i don’t think it’s that wasteful… it’s not like i would save the yolks for anything, ya know?

    Hahhaha, great video! I felt tired just watching it:)

  8. bobbi on July 10, 2010 at 10:18 pm

    Hey Gina,
    That’s aesome that you do Turbo Fire too! we just bought it like 3 weeks ago, and absolutley love it. We even just tried the inferno plan that comes with it this past week. Chalene is awesome, and Turbo Fire is a really fun workout to get into.

  10. Betherann on July 11, 2010 at 5:03 am

    Work it! Looks like fun. 🙂

  11. Gina! Loving the vid! Looks like heaps of fun. Once i’m fitter it’s def something I want to try 🙂

  12. Pure2raw twins on July 11, 2010 at 1:28 pm

    love the video…you two are too cute!!

    Your fitness conference in Atlanta sounds like fun!! Wish we could come down and see ya.

  13. Teri [a foodie stays fit] on July 11, 2010 at 2:06 pm

    LOL. that cameo at the end cracked me up. Tell the pilot he has nice moves.

    Does it take a while before you are able to keep up with it or are the cues pretty good?

    • Fitnessista on July 11, 2010 at 3:28 pm

      the cues are excellent, but i’m a pretty fast learner from dancing for so many years

      • Fitnessista on July 11, 2010 at 3:29 pm

        the pilot said thank you hahah 🙂

  14. Emma on July 11, 2010 at 7:54 pm

    Wow! That looks like so much fun! xxx

  15. Maya on July 11, 2010 at 11:42 pm

    You are ridiculously full of energy! And you looked like you were having a blast. It actually seems like a lot of fun! I respect that you decided not to become a Beach Body trainer so that you could give an unbiased review.

  16. Carrie on July 12, 2010 at 8:36 am

    Gina, you are one baaaaaaaaaad ass aerobecizer!!!! Holy crap… my pressure was through the roof watching you…!!!

    And of course no workout session is complete without being mocked by a husband… you should see mine when I zumba lol…

    But seriously…respect girl! That was crazy to watch!!! 🙂

    • Fitnessista on July 12, 2010 at 8:54 am

      LOL! that’s so true, he always mocks my workouts 🙂
      thank you!

  17. Karen on July 13, 2010 at 3:09 am

    Gina, I was catching up on your posts after my computer had a senior moment last week, and I LOVED THIS VIDEO :)! The Pilot cracked me up – maybe he should become a Beach Body trainer? Did you ever get him to try Zumba with you?

    • Fitnessista on July 13, 2010 at 8:42 am

      hahah no he’s never zumba-ed with me
