Too Legit

Hi guys 😀 How’s it going?? Hope you’re having a fabulous day!

I started mine with something that’s been MIA in my life for too long…

a Fitnessista breakfast cookie!

bfast cookie

This baby had:

1/2 C oats

1 serving Nutribiotic brown rice protein (it’s no Sun Warrior, but I forgot mine in Valdizzy and picked up the Nutribiotic as a sub for the week)

almond milk

1/2 smashed nanner

1/2 T chia seeds

1 T almond butter

1/2 T maca

It was amazing, and the perfect fuel for a crazy spin class. Israel, my favorite spin teacher EVER (and I’ve been spinning for 5 years) has an awesome Puerto Rican accent and yells at everyone during class (like, “SHOW ME!”, “Go, go!!” and “keep that beat!’”)—he knows almost everyone’s name and while he called me Gina on Tuesday, today he called me by my full name, which is Angelina. (He pronounced the “g” with an “h” sound. Baller). It was pretty funny 😉

After spin, I did a half hour of weights (triceps, chest, back and a little abs) and then came home for protein power.

A smoothie with:

-frozen organic dark cherries

-the other half of the banana from this morning’s bfast cookie

-almond milk

-brown rice protein


The henna tattoo looks pretty legit, huh??

I texted a pic of it to my brother, who is the tattoo king.

(910): Check out my sweet tat.

(520): You’re so lame, haha.

Thanks, buddy 😉

I spent the afternoon doing some work on the computer and then met two lovely blog girls for lunch at Heaven on Earth (aka Whole Foods, or Whole Paycheck): Charlie and Katy!

I wasn’t too starving since I’d had the smoothie and a copious amount of dark chocolate eggs, but I still managed to find something feast-able 😉

hot bar

A lil salad with Annie’s Raspberry Vinaigrette and yucca fries. Garlicky, starchy glory.

And some bacteria action:


I can’t believe I used to hate kombucha- it’s SO good 😀 Now, I chug that stuff frat boy style… if I could crush the bottle with my hand afterwards, I so would 😉

I’m back at my aunt’s casa and we’re hitting up Urban Flatts for dinner.

See ya in the morning <3



Today’s tip: While spinning, try to stand with just your fingertips on the bike. I see so many people clutching the handlebars for dear life! By easing up on the handles, you rely more on leg power (and get a better workout!) while reducing the chance of hurting your wrists.

    Do you speak Spanish fluently then? I’m sure you’ve already answered this, but it’s something I’ve always wondered!

    • Fitnessista on April 9, 2010 at 7:59 am

      yup! 🙂

    Gina . . . question for you . . . any thoughts/opinions on the paleo/primal lifestyle. Just wondering if you’ve ever worked with anyone that utilized this way of eating – since it is quite a bit different from your’s. There are so darn many studies out there – and it is difficult to wrap your head around what is the “science” and what isn’t. Thanks for any input you have.

      hey mo,
      i disagree with it- the other trainer at our gym and i have discussed this quite a bit. our lifestyles today are SO different, that we need a different type of fuel. we aren’t hunting and gathering, spending all day in the same location and then traveling by foot to our new destination. we hop in the car, drive to the grocery store and pick up our food 🙂
      the premise behind it makes sense and it encourages the types of food we should be eating, but all in all, i find it way too restrictive and unnecessary for today’s style of living

    I really wish I could attend a spin class with anyone who had any sort of accent. 🙂 Angelina is your full name? pretty!

    I’m totally craving kombucha now. I’ve never seen that flavor! How was it?

    • Fitnessista on April 9, 2010 at 9:09 am

      the ginger is my fave! 🙂

    I love spin classes. My favorite instructor sounds like the blonde cop on ‘Police Women of Broward County’ (the younger blonde, not the one that has the 80s style hair, LOL). She yells ‘Yeah!!! DO IT!!!’ Israel sound like a blasty, Angelina ? What a pretty name!

  6. Krysta on April 9, 2010 at 2:34 pm

    The image of you crushing a Kombucha bottle with your hands made me laugh. Looks like you’re having a great vacation!

  7. brittney on April 9, 2010 at 4:45 pm

    Your cousin is way pretty! Like you. 🙂

  8. Hilda on April 10, 2010 at 1:56 pm

    Not to sound dumb, but do you drink the goop (bacteria?) at the bottom of Kombucha? I bought a bottle about a month and a half ago and it’s still sitting in my fridge because I’m not sure how to drink it (shake it up? drink everything?) Thanks.

    • Fitnessista on April 10, 2010 at 4:04 pm

      a lot of people do.. but i don’t
      it gives me the heeby jeebies haha

    I have never been to a Whole Foods. The closest I got was while my brother drove past one outside New Orleans as he drove me to the airport. I was staring at it longingly as we past it.

    • Fitnessista on April 11, 2010 at 8:27 pm

      whaaaaat?! i’d make him stop next time 🙂 you will love it!
