So nice, I blogged it twice

Hey hey hey ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope youโ€™re having a wonderful weekend so far! Sorry about posting yesterdayโ€™s post two timesโ€ฆ not sure what happened there and since iโ€™m technologically illiterate, it will probably like that ๐Ÿ˜‰

Last night, since it was FREEEEZING and raining, I busted out my new black Friday coat


new coat

Why am I making a creeper face and looking like I wanna punch someone? No one will ever know ๐Ÿ˜‰

I met up with the girls at Longhorn for some dinner, since the guys were all at the squadron drinking to their heartโ€™s delight.

Red vino:




Shrimpies + double veg (no butter sauce)

ze shrimp

Dinner was amazing, but the best part was dessertโ€ฆ.




After the movie, I got to see my own personal Edward who reeked like beer and whiskey and could hardly walk after the roll call. At the time, the only similarity between him and the real Edward was the paleness ๐Ÿ˜‰

We came back to the casa, he told me the same stories over and over and about the shenanigans that went down, then I gave him some toast and water before he went to bed.

This morning, I had some raw goji berry oats.

gojiberry oats

1/2 cup soaked buckwheat groats with 2 T soaked goji berries, blended up with almond milk, vanilla and Stevia, topped with almond butter and cinnamon.

Pretty tasty wasty ๐Ÿ˜€

Iโ€™m off to get ready for work, then going to Targizzle to buy a new iPod. Mine is lost/stolen โ€“ I left it at the gym last week and havenโ€™t ran since! I need my tunes!!!! After that, squadron kidโ€™s Christmas party ๐Ÿ˜€

Have a great day!

  3. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on December 5, 2009 at 9:53 am

    I love the coat! Hahah my hubby had a few too many last night, too. He repeats himself enough, and when he drinks its like 8 times worse!

  4. katie on December 5, 2009 at 10:07 am

    Oooh your coat is adorable! Was the movie even better the 2nd time? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Fitnessista on December 5, 2009 at 4:23 pm

      YES! especially since i wasn’t seeing it at midnight, like we did the first time ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Katie on December 5, 2009 at 10:18 am

    Love the coat! Where did you get it again?

    I haven’t even seen new moon once must fix that.

    LOL poor Pilot sounds like he had fun though. Don’t the guys always though when alcohol is involved.

    I am using a borrowed Nano I drowned mine running in the rain a couple weeks ago :/ It’s a pain to remember to upload ALL of your songs back on it. Which I just realized I’m missing a whole cd on mine.

    • Fitnessista on December 5, 2009 at 4:22 pm

      old navy special, haha. $29!!!!

  6. Katie on December 5, 2009 at 10:40 am

    I love the oats! Oh, and the amazing poster of Edward. Om nom nom to both!

  7. Shelby on December 5, 2009 at 10:55 am

    That coat is so adorable!

  8. Erica on December 5, 2009 at 10:59 am

  9. Lily @ Lily's Health Pad on December 5, 2009 at 11:01 am

    I couldn’t live without my ipod. Running without it is impossible! I have even boycotted road races where they are banned.

  10. Mara @ What's For Dinner? on December 5, 2009 at 11:53 am

    I haven’t seen new moon yet… i know, so not ok ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Julie @savvyeats on December 5, 2009 at 12:02 pm

    Cute coat!

  12. HealthySDLiving on December 5, 2009 at 12:06 pm

    Love the jacket, super cute!

  13. Heather on December 5, 2009 at 12:12 pm

    I finally took my ipod on a long run with me and it made the run fly by! I won’t be running without it anymore.

    New Moon was awesome!!

  14. Anne P on December 5, 2009 at 12:41 pm

    Lol I love how drunk people always repeat the same things/stories over and over. The key is to tell said stories over and over to someone as equally drunk as you are; therefore, they will not notice and will be delightfully entertained all over again each time ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. julie on December 5, 2009 at 1:22 pm

    hey girrl thanks for the maca and vrope tips! i’m hoping that this healthfood supermarket near me has it ๐Ÿ™‚ woo hoo

    lovee the jacket! have a great weekend

  16. Liz on December 5, 2009 at 1:26 pm

    That coat is adorable!

    And I saw in your last post that you had another judgmental person spew their..well..judgements at you. Just ignore these people because they are not worth the time or effort it takes to get upset. Your life works for you, and that is all that matters. I’m sure we all do things that others do not necessarily agree with or understand. For instance, my coffee addiction (it just tastes so damn good, lol). So….don’t let these people get you down!

    Okay, I’m done attempting to be inspirational, haha. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  17. Cara (Cara Craves...) on December 5, 2009 at 1:33 pm

    mmmmm…grilled shrimp ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Jenna on December 5, 2009 at 2:05 pm

    cute coat! you need to get a new iPod to jam out to all your cool beats ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Mo @ Mommy RD on December 5, 2009 at 2:34 pm

    Don’t you love how they think they are funnier when drunk too? Hope the pilot feels ok today. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Like the new coat.

  20. GirlonRaw on December 5, 2009 at 2:55 pm

    Totally know the feeling with the lack of tunes. I cannot work out (mainly run) without although I do find running outdoors easier to do than inside. Shame you lost the old one after working out how to revive it ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Fitnessista on December 5, 2009 at 4:22 pm

      i did revive it, thanks to you! and then i lost it ๐Ÿ™

  21. Gena on December 5, 2009 at 3:29 pm

    OK, so I’m probably the only girl alive who isn’t into TWILIGHT. Still, I want my own personal Edward. too much to ask?

    • Fitnessista on December 5, 2009 at 4:21 pm

      hahah, yes you are ๐Ÿ˜‰
      i’m pretty sure there’s a raw edward out there, waiting to find you ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. emptyjar on December 5, 2009 at 4:13 pm

    You have a great blog, its great ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Christine on December 5, 2009 at 4:23 pm

    Love, love the purse!! Where did you find it? What brand?

    • Fitnessista on December 5, 2009 at 4:47 pm

      thank you! gucci… i got last time we went to ny ๐Ÿ˜€

  24. Lauren @ eater not a runner on December 5, 2009 at 4:26 pm

    Cute jacket! and yummy looking dinner!

  25. maris on December 5, 2009 at 4:35 pm

    hey does anyone have any stylish- gym bag examples? need a new one desperately!

  26. Marissa on December 5, 2009 at 4:36 pm

    Cute coat!

  27. Melissa S. on December 5, 2009 at 5:21 pm

    yay for partyyyyy tonight! even if it is a kids one. ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Carolyn on December 5, 2009 at 5:36 pm

    That sucks about your iPod!! I hate theives!!

  29. Melissa (Melissa Likes To Eat) on December 5, 2009 at 6:45 pm

    Ugh….I could not run without my tunes….I like to drown out the sound of my heavy breathing. ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. Sarah @ See Sarah Eat on December 5, 2009 at 7:25 pm

    Love the new coat! Hope you had fun at Target, I went today too ๐Ÿ™‚ Great song pick, I love me some Shinedown.

  31. Karla on December 5, 2009 at 7:50 pm

    No ipod! Sad! But new things are always fun!

    Cute coat! Sadly it’s so cold here that cute coats are obsolete!

  32. Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg on December 5, 2009 at 9:03 pm

    That sucks that you had to buy a new i-pod ๐Ÿ™

    But your coat is super cute!

  33. Lindsay Perrone on December 6, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Can we talk about something off topic from this post… what the hell is Zumba and can the average person do it? There’s a class at my gym but I’m scaarrreedd to go. My coordination is embarrassing at best. Also, you eat the most bizarre things; I’m fascinated.

    • Fitnessista on December 6, 2009 at 9:08 am

      bizarre?? haha
      you could totally do zumba- just go and have fun!

  34. Susan on December 6, 2009 at 12:12 am

    Gina I just bought some raw oat groats and how do you soak them? in water? how long? I’m afraid they won’t be chewy enough! I’m so confused lol.

    • Fitnessista on December 6, 2009 at 12:13 am

      in water, overnight and blend in the food processor ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Susan on December 6, 2009 at 11:14 am


  35. One Healthy Apple on December 6, 2009 at 1:00 am

    Love, love your coat! I am probably the only female alive who has no knowledge of Edward!

    • Lindsay Perrone on December 6, 2009 at 1:06 pm

      Not the only one! I have no clue about any of this new moon/twilight/edward business.

  36. Emma on December 6, 2009 at 5:50 am

    Hey Gina,

    Cute coat. Seems weird to see you all wrapped up though seeing as we’re edging into summer now. I say edging – 25C is still ‘getting there’ to me! (I should figure out the F temp as I realise that will mean nothing to you.)

    I realise I’m new, but I just wanted to say thankyou for your awesome blog, and also for inspiring me to finally start my own. We’re only on post one for now, but I’m glad I’ve at least started something. I hope I’ve linked up to you properly but please let me know if there’s anything else I need to be stating. I certainly don’t want to be plagiarising anything. Munching an almond butter cookie right now – loving it ๐Ÿ™‚ Again, you’re an inspiration. Muchas gracias.

    Have you ever seen True Blood? I’m not a Twilight fan but True Blood… hello Eric in season two. Swooooooon!

  37. Lauren on December 6, 2009 at 6:34 am

    I’ve been known to take care of my husband after he’s had one too many drinks as well… those boys :).

    Although I do like the Twilight series, I have to agree with Emma’s comment above about True Blood… it’s a great show!

  38. Pam Hollingsworth on December 6, 2009 at 7:56 am

    Hi Gina, I love your blog and have been reading, enjoying and learning from it for over a year. Just a word of gentle advice-please think twice about posting reports of over imbibing on either you or your hubby’s part. It might not be good for either of your careers-blogs are widely read and can be very influential. I don’t mean any disrespect-just want the best for you-I know you are very committed to what you do-and who knows-a book could very well be in your future! I predict BIG things for you!–Best to you both-Pam

    • Fitnessista on December 6, 2009 at 9:07 am

      hey pam,
      i totally understand your concern, but as you know i only enjoy an occasional glass of wine with dinner or a pomtini with friends, and the other night, the pilot was at a roll call which is a squadron event for them. it’s a tradition where the guys have a “meeting” after work in which they have to take shots.. then the wives go pick them up. it wasn’t like it was a typical friday night, or that he was at a bar and had too many. it was a work thing, and the last time the guys had a roll call was 10 july. crazy! so it’s a rare occurrence.
      i try to give a glimpse into the fighter pilot wife’s life as well, and since the roll calls are something the guys go every blue moon, i thought i’d throw it in there. i hope no one was offended or took it the wrong way – i tried to distinguish that it was a work thing, and people who do know the blog know i hardly ever have a drunken pilot on my hands.

  39. Pam Hollingsworth on December 6, 2009 at 10:53 am

    Hi Gina, thanks for the clarification!I should have kept my big mouth shut! ๐Ÿ™‚ Love your blog, and again, all the best! Pam

  40. Ashley @ Good Taste. Healthy Me on December 6, 2009 at 1:03 pm

    I just saw New Moon too! I loved it! I’m definitely a huge Edward fan…however Jacob was GORGEOUS in the movie!

  41. Michal on December 6, 2009 at 6:29 pm

    Love the coat, and the bag! Both are fierce!

    • Fitnessista on December 6, 2009 at 6:48 pm

      oh thank you! i love the word fierce ๐Ÿ˜€

  42. Katy @ These Beautiful Feet on December 6, 2009 at 10:52 pm

    Super cute coat! But you should look happier wearing it! Creeper..(; Only kidding. But I wouldn’t want to get in a fight with you.

    • Fitnessista on December 6, 2009 at 11:05 pm

      good idea, my kung fu is strong ๐Ÿ˜‰

  43. glidingcalm on December 7, 2009 at 1:34 pm
