See ya, Year

Hi guys! How are ya? Hope you have something fun planned for tonight! Please remember to be safe, take a cab if you need to.. and booty shake. That is all ๐Ÿ˜‰


I had no idea how I was going to sum up this past year. SO much went downโ€ฆ. some incredible, some not-so-fab, and everything happened exactly the way it was supposed to. Since I like lists so much, I figured that would work best:


Fun stuff:

1. Dinner parties with fabulous friends

2. Beach trips

3. Blog meet-ups

4. Date nights


Favorite recipes of 2010:

1. Perfect Protein Pancake

2. Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

3. Chocolate mug cake

4. Crepes

5. Breakfast relleno



1. Jacksonville

2. Tucson

3. Las Vegas

4. Chicago

5. San Francisco

6. New York

7. Bahamas


Workout stuff:

1. My second half marathon- then I broke up with running

2. Insanity

3. TurboFire

4. I fell IN LOVE with Dance Trance



1. The Pilot was gone a lot.. and then left again

2. I was supposed to open a restaurant, but it fell through

3. Stopped teaching Zumba

4. Started working at lululemon, which totally changed my outlook on life and inspired me in so many ways

5. I moved to Orlando and to Tucson, all within 3 months


6. The Pilot and I bought a businessโ€ฆ oh wait, I havenโ€™t blogged about that yet ๐Ÿ˜‰

As crazy and 2010 was, Iโ€™m definitely ready for 2011- there are already a lot of wonderful things in store!

Thank you, as always, for hanging out with me, coming along for the shenanigans and making this blog such a fun and positive space <3

What was your favorite moment of 2010?? What are you most looking forward to in 2011?

My favorite moment of 2010 was sitting on the porch at the Bahamas, sipping wine with the Pilot ๐Ÿ™‚

Iโ€™m most looking forward to ITALY in 2011- itโ€™s finally going to happen!

See ya next year <3

    Happy New Year, Gina!

    Thanks for blogging every day and pouring your heart and soul into your blog!

    My year..I moved back from AZ to CA (after just 9 mos of being there…you have me beat with 2 moves in 3mos!) but am thrilled to be back living where I belong in San Diego!

    In 2011, I wrote my 10 Intentions on my blog. They are all meaningful to me, everything from pay off credit card debt to be the best wife/mother I can be.

    I really like the outlook that everything happens because it’s supposed to. I feel like every experience, even the bad ones, are necessary in order to make me into the person I am today.

    I can’t wait to hear more about the business that you bought with the Pilot. That sounds exciting!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    My favorite moment of 2010 hands down was being offered my first teaching job a week or so before graduation. Not only was it after something else I thought I had at the place I interned fell through, but its also the specific position I wanted to badly at a good school with great teachers and administration and teaching my dream subjects, AP World History and AP European History, so that just proves everything DOES work out how its supposed to in the end ๐Ÿ™‚

    I start Monday, wish me luck!

    • Fitnessista on January 1, 2011 at 12:17 pm

      that is amazing! good luck! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Nikki on January 1, 2011 at 1:01 pm

    I’m with the others… you can’t slip in “bought a business” like that! Can’t wait to hear about it!

  13. Laura on January 1, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    Hi Gina-
    In many of your posts you mention eating brown rice bread. What brand do you buy? I have some brown rice flour in my pantry but haven’t had the motivation to make my own yet ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait to hear about your new business. Can you tell us yet? How about now??? ๐Ÿ™‚
