Showers and Flowers

Hey guys! Hope you’ve had a wonderful and relaxing day <3 Congrats to those of you who were racing machines this morning! I did a race, too… in my sleep 😉

It’s glooooomy and pouring outside.

A little sunshine…


Flowers from the pilot <3

and a breakfast cookie!

bfast cookie

Today’s mix-ins were maca, cinnamon and goji berries.

We ran some errands and cleaned up around the casa,

then had an epic lunch.


Egg + egg white omelet with smoked salmon, spinach, dill and goat gouda.

Yup. I said it 😉

I’ve reduced my seafood intake a little since I was eating it everyday and worried about the mercury levels in my blood. Now I’m having seafood about twice a week, and I’d been thinking about that smoked salmon all week 😀 It was ridiculous.

I’m off to see Letters to Juliet with Jeni and her MIL, but first the pilot and I are going to do some damage on this raw strawberry tart leftover from girls night. It’s been chilling in the freezer, waiting to be eaten.


Have a Happy Sunday!

LOTS of fun stuff (Summer Shape Up and a giveaway) going down tomorrow 😀

    aaahhh! smoked salmon 🙂 it will forever make me think of sunshine & sandals resorts. Do you have a favorite kind? we sometimes get one at costco that rocks, and the greenwise Publix here has a good one. We had sushi night a la casa last night, and you know I stuffed my face with the leftover salmon 🙂 so good!

      i got that one from trader joes and it was amazing 🙂 will totally remind me of sandals resorts every time, too!

    Can’t wait for the third week of Summer Shape up!!

  3. Bethany @ More Fruit Please on June 6, 2010 at 3:58 pm

    Sounds like a perfect Sunday to me!!! I love that the pilot brightened your day with flowers! <3

  4. Sana on June 6, 2010 at 4:03 pm

    I was also eating seafood everyday and I just stopped all together. It is just one of those things that you can ease out of. I loved letters to Juliet!!!

    • jessica on June 6, 2010 at 9:52 pm

      Is there a reason you stopped? Fatty fishes like salmon have so many health benefits that are hard to find elsewhere in nature.

      • Fitnessista on June 6, 2010 at 9:54 pm

        yeah i totally agree- salmon is my favorite. i was eating it every day though, sometimes twice a day

  5. emptyjar on June 6, 2010 at 4:07 pm

    i dont think you have to worry about mercury with salmon…mercury is more prevalent in tuna and swordfish and shark.
    salmon and white fish are good to go in more abundance.

  6. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on June 6, 2010 at 4:08 pm

    Awww the pilot is so sweet! You seriously found the perfect guy Gina.

  7. Emily on June 6, 2010 at 4:14 pm

    The Pilot has good taste in flowers! Let us know how you find the movie… Have a great Sunday night!

  8. fittingbackin on June 6, 2010 at 4:14 pm

    Beautiful flowers, girl! Sounds like you’re having a great day!

  9. Brittany on June 6, 2010 at 4:24 pm

    Fresh flowers always brighten my day!

    I’d never had smoked salmon until I dated Isaac and was introduced to the bagel, cream cheese, smoked salmon combo. Your egg version looks so delicious!

    Hope your weekend is going well Gina.

  10. Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine on June 6, 2010 at 4:46 pm

    I don’t eat much seafood anymore because of the mercury, but it’s my fave…what kind of smoked salmon do you buy? I’m always worried about which brands are the best…

    What gorgeous flowers! So nice of the pilot to bring you some 🙂 Enjoy that tart!!

  11. Diana on June 6, 2010 at 4:46 pm

    Your food looks delish! Have fun see Letters to Juliet! I can’t wait to see it myself!

  12. Allison @ Food For Healing on June 6, 2010 at 4:51 pm

  14. Melanie@ I Dream of Tahini on June 6, 2010 at 5:09 pm

  15. Alycia @ Fit n Fresh on June 6, 2010 at 6:00 pm

    I so want that tart recipe!! Any way to get it from you?

    • Fitnessista on June 6, 2010 at 6:16 pm

      it’s in the cookbook “everyday raw” by matthew kenney 🙂

  16. Kellie on June 6, 2010 at 6:10 pm

    Can you tell a difference when you take Maca? I have some, but I have yet to try it.

    • Fitnessista on June 6, 2010 at 6:16 pm

      yes! it gives me energy 🙂

  17. chocolatecoatedrunner on June 6, 2010 at 6:18 pm

  18. Devon on June 6, 2010 at 6:31 pm

    I love getting flowers! Yours are beautiful. 🙂

  20. Nicole @ Making Good Choices on June 6, 2010 at 7:00 pm

    Enjoy the movie, can’t wait to read a recap. I would love to have a bite (or 20) of that tart!

  21. Courtney @ Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life on June 6, 2010 at 7:03 pm

    Awww, flowers from the hubby are always such a treat! 🙂
    I’ve been wanting to see that movie with some of my girlfriends…we just can’t seem to arrange a time when we’re actually all free!

  22. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on June 6, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    Smoked salmon is bomb!

    Enjoy the movie! I wanted to travel to Italy so badly after seeing it. 😀

  23. Annie D. @ Annie's Simple Life on June 6, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    Beautiful flowers!!!!

  24. Heather (Heather's Dish) on June 6, 2010 at 8:25 pm

    i can’t wait to hear what you think about the movie! i’ve been wanting to see it for so long now…but i trust your opinion 🙂

    • Fitnessista on June 6, 2010 at 9:30 pm

      it was WONDERFUL 🙂

  25. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on June 6, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    i think it’s good to be mindful of mercury levels but a rule of thumb is the larger the fish, the more mercury it has. it has eaten all the other smaller fish, and it’s carrying their toxic load too…so you’d want to avoid say swordfish and mackeral and such at all costs. That’s a little pre-pregnancy trivia for you for one day if you ever find yourself freaking out re mercury. Just eat smaller fish. Tilapia is “green light” compared to say a huge king tuna. Sorry to be all Alton Brown science lesson on you LOL

    Did my show girl. I am so happy! Have a great week honey! I am moving back to San Diego on Tues…cannot wait!

  26. Max on June 6, 2010 at 9:54 pm

    I really want to see Letters to Juliet!
    And those flowers are gorgeous!

  27. Nicole on June 6, 2010 at 10:09 pm

    Girl! I think I might be making my first bfast cookie this week! Wish me luck, I’ll definitely be using one (or all?) of your “recipes” for those bad boys. Gracias for introducing me (and pretty much all bloggers!) to them! 😀 Have a great week!

  28. Jenn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) on June 6, 2010 at 10:14 pm

    That omelet looks delish!


  29. jenna on June 7, 2010 at 8:25 am

    what a fun day flowers, devine omelet, movie with gfs’ and a leftover chocolate tart!!!!!!!!!! blissful!

  30. Marissa on June 7, 2010 at 9:05 am

    I’ve been on an omelete kick lately! I’ve been having them every other day or so… they taste so good with some blueberry protein pancakes!

  31. Doc on June 7, 2010 at 1:46 pm

    Hmmm…not posting, so I’m going to try this without the http://www...

    This might make your day:

    Plus, I think I read somewhere that farmed salmon is more eco-concious? Anyway, enjoy your fishies!
