“Show Me Your Fit” Friday

Hey guys πŸ˜€ How has your day been?

Nothing too crazy over here, just an eye doctor appointment

smoothie from Xoom juice


(almond milk, blueberries, banana, strawberries, Sun Warrior from a baggie in my purse)

and getting my nails did.


I just got a polish change on my nails and toes πŸ™‚

Love the SPARKLES πŸ˜€


(β€œTeenage Dream” by OPI)

We’re headed to a BBQ this afternoon, so I made a batch of artichoke dip for us to take:


dip (2)

(from Eat, Drink and Be Vegan)

along with some tortilla chips for dipping


and flowers for the hostess.


We’re off, but until I see you again, enjoy the second round of Show Me Your Fit entries!

Show Me Your Fit


Nikki: I have an extensive collection of baseball hats and love to wear a different one every time I workout. My name is Nikki Brown, from Allentown, PA


Soggy but smiling after my first moksha hot yoga class! (It won’t be the last!)


Holly from HLD Fashion: The boyfriend & I went on a crazy awesome hike up Mt. Tzouhalem on Vancouver Island, BC. It was a great work out & the view from the top was breath taking!


Kelsea: Just hit the gym in my hot pink kicks πŸ™‚

Kate: I just came back from a long weekend in New Orleans visiting a close friend and her husband. I thought it would be fun to send you a pic of a couple of the most memorable southern food items we ate during my visit.

Oyster po boy and sweet potato fries I ate one day for lunch + alligator nuggets we all shared as an appetizer (along side Mint Juleps). Both were amazing!


Shaya: Here I am right before my very first 5k!! I ninja-kicked my goal finish time (under 35 minutes) and ran it in 29:43!!!


Bethany: Body Dips @ the Gym!


Clare: It’s from before my first half marathon! I was so excited and so proud to be running.


Shanna: Yoga on the beaches of Kauai while on vacation is how I stay fit


Katie! (A good friend of mine)


Katheryn: Last Saturday I ran my fourth half-marathon.  I am so fortunate to have the best cheerleaders cheering me on every race.  My hubby and our two children!


Kindra: Took this one last week of my pup Rex while trying to do yoga at home. I call it downward facing doggie πŸ™‚

Off to the party! Enjoy the rest of your afternoon πŸ™‚



Something to talk about: What’s your weekend fitness plan looking like? We’ll be hiking Sabino Canyon tomorrow- so excited πŸ˜€

    Weekend fitness — running 11 miles tomorrow and some weight lifting on Sunday!

  12. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on April 15, 2011 at 11:19 pm

    Have fun on your canyon hike. I bet it’s getting toasty in AZ by this time of year. Enjoy the weather before it’s too hot πŸ™‚

    I love these pics, Gina. I am so bummed that I forgot to submit. Life a working mommy and blogger…I lose track of the details sometimes.

    I love the looks of the artichoke dip and I have the ED & BV book and have seen other ppl and bloggers make that dip..I think I need to make it!

  13. caitlin on April 15, 2011 at 11:30 pm

    I love ‘show me your fit’- keep it going! Im sending in a pic of my big muscles ;).
    Great inspiration!

  14. Bex @ Bex Blog on April 16, 2011 at 12:01 am

    I love the doggy doing yoga. So cute!

    I am working on a whole series of my own ‘show me your fit’ – pics from what a typical week looks like for me. I will send it to you when I get it all together πŸ™‚

    Do you have a recipe for that artichoke dip? I’m throwing a bridal shower for my best friend and looking for good vegan appies.

    This weekend I will be attending a free crossfit class and a karma yoga class for international yoga day!

  15. J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) on April 16, 2011 at 1:07 am

    Your toenails look like little cookies! πŸ™‚

  16. Mara @ What's For Dinner? on April 16, 2011 at 1:50 am

    Our toes match πŸ™‚ I have the same color and im obsessed with it. I’m purchasing my own bottle tomorrow!

  17. Kelly on April 16, 2011 at 4:42 am

    Shouldn’t it be – “show me you’re fit”

    • pam on April 16, 2011 at 11:49 am

      No, I believe what Gina is saying is show me what your fit looks like (as in, your (possessive form) fit (noun form, a state of being).

      You’re = you are, which would mean she’s saying, “show me that you are fit”. Still makes sense, but not as cute.


      • Fitnessista on April 16, 2011 at 1:54 pm

        exactly! thanks πŸ™‚
        as a fellow member of the spelling and grammar police, i would not mistake your for you’re πŸ˜‰

  18. im doing the run for the kids tomorrow 14.5km cant wait πŸ™‚ its my longest distance so far!

  19. emma on April 16, 2011 at 6:07 am

    Love these pics! will post one soon πŸ™‚ I’m going for a run in the sun right now! πŸ™‚ xoxo

  20. Cait @ Beyond Bananas on April 16, 2011 at 6:48 am

    Love Teenage Dream by OPI!!!
    I’ve got a long run on my training plan this weekend.. and am planning to explore and hike at a park in my town! Enjoy your hike, Gina!

  21. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on April 16, 2011 at 8:20 am

    Have fun on your hike! I wish my weekend plans involved a hike, but the forecast calls for rain for the next three days! Blech! πŸ˜›

  22. chocolate-covered katie on April 16, 2011 at 8:28 am

    aww aww aww love this! I think my favorite is the downward doggie one… but the pink sneakers are pretty fun too!

    I love how everyone is SMILING. It reminds me that working out is first-and-foremost supposed to be fun! Thanks for putting a smile on my face early this morning… and now I’m going out for a run, with that smile still on. Too bad I don’t have any pink sneakers to go with it ;).

    Love your creativity in coming up with this!

  23. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on April 16, 2011 at 9:06 am

    I love all of these photos! In response to your tweet, yes I think this should be a regular feature for sure. Have fun on your hike!! It’s pouring rain here so my weekend fitness plans will likely just be limited to teaching my Sunday spin class tomorrow.

  24. Sarah on April 16, 2011 at 10:25 am

    Well, I planned on a run this morning but it is just so gross outside. Wet and cold.. sad. So I’m thinking I’ll take the day off and get back to it tomorrow!

    Have a great weekend!

  25. Sarah @TheExPat Bride on April 16, 2011 at 1:09 pm

    Dang! Look at your ring! πŸ™‚

  26. Dana Marie on April 16, 2011 at 2:07 pm

    You are so olive skinned! Don’t forget to wear sunscreen on your hike! It’s cold and gloomy /windy here

  27. Lindsey on April 16, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    Shaya : go UW !! πŸ˜€ I’m a junior there right now!

  28. Katherine: Unemployed on April 17, 2011 at 5:55 am

    this is going to be the ultimate “where have you been moment”
    have you and the pilot always been engaged? for some reason, I thought it was just a serious love! beautiful ring πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on April 17, 2011 at 12:43 pm

      we’ve been married for almost 4 years πŸ™‚

      • Katherine: Unemployed on April 18, 2011 at 11:30 am

        OMG! I am so sorry! how am I so dense!? I’m sure I’ve seen pictures and my brain is just squash

        • Fitnessista on April 18, 2011 at 12:20 pm

          haha no worries!

  29. Nicci (NiftyEats) on April 17, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    This weekend I did a lot of cleaning at home, read a book and went for a Sunday morning run with my dog! Perfect weekend.

  30. Erin on April 17, 2011 at 7:29 pm
