Two To Tango

Heyyyyy 😀 It’s Friday! Wahoo! What are you up to this weekend??

I did it.


AT&T owned me. It took three different places, over two hours, and lots of sanity, but I crossed over to the dark side and like it so far 🙂 The main reason why I got the iPhone is because I can use it for credit card transactions– pretty baller.

After the craziness, I did a happy dance with Tucker:


And joined the roomies and familia for Pei Wei takeout at the madres.

I enjoyed the gluten-free Spicy Shrimp with brown rice, + vegetables

It was delicious but veryyyyyy sweet. My teeth were hurting when I was finished! They definitely made up for lost gluten with LOTS of honey.

It’s funny because gluten-free doesn’t necessarily mean *healthy*- just like “organic” or “vegan”. (Even though I admit to telling people they should have dessert because it’s vegan. Then they say “oh, ok!” and I have an instant dessert buddy)

When we finally got back to the casa, I made another batch of almond butter 🙂


(If you need help making almond butter, check out Ashley’s post- she turned my world upside down)

This morning, I had a workout date with an old friend:



It’s been awhile since I’ve seen her face, since I’ve been fortunate to be taking live fitness classes in Orlando and now Tucson. Since today is crazy busy, I thought it would be easier to squeeze in an at-home workout instead of rushing around later.

I did the HIIT 30 workout and it was just as fun, difficult and sweaty as I remembered 🙂



Hope you have an amazing day <3



Today’s Workout Jam:Who’s that chick?” Rihanna ft David Guetta (LOVE this song right now.. if I choreograph a dance for it, I’ll post it for ya’ll)

Winter Shape Up starts MONDAY!!  😀

Ps. I picked this post title because of the tango-esque dance I’m doing with Tucker.. and whenever people ask when the Pilot and I are going to have kids, I tell them it takes two to tango. 😉

    ADORABLE Kate Spade case!! I have a legitimate KS obsession…I want an iPhone just so I can use one of their cases (I guess all the other stuff it does is cool too :)!

    WooHOO for your new iPhone! Some of my apps i use are Calorie counter by shape up club (its free, the icon is green with a jumping person), I have also used fat secret calorie counter, it has more restaurant meals programmed, i usually use it to get calorie count off of. I just got Run keeper pro, it is free for January but usually 9.99$, it keeps track of your miles but haven’t used it yet, its too cold out! I also have body fitness app my husband uses that from time to time.

    Some fun apps are Words with Friends, Cut the rope, and emojicons (icon is blue smileys and one yellow smiley face), the moron test is pretty fun too! happy apping!

    I hope you like your new phone! You HAVE to get the Nike Training Club app. They just revamped it completely & it is amazing & really challenging. There ate tons of cardio drills & really unique strength training moves. Its free too!

    I love the iphone!!

    Question: have you tried the Barre Method? If so, how did you like it? I just did a week free classes, and while it was a good workout, I wasn’t as sore as I thought I was going to be. I usually do Spin and Bodypump.

    hi gina, this is a reader suggestion:
    how about a post about juicer v. vitamix? i heard some juicers don’t even include the fiber in the final product – confusing huh? b/c i thought we all want more fiber.
    and the vitamix is so strong that i would think it could juice anything. and isn’t it better to eat the vegetable rather than drink it??
    anyway – i would love to read a post about this –
    just an idea!
    thanks gina!

    Congrats on the iphone. Your world has been officially changed forever!

    Tucker is as big as you are! That’s cute. I used to have a 110 lb Great Pyranees – she pulled me down so many times I lost count.

    im loving your case!!

  11. Holley on January 14, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    LOVE the iphone case! I’m a major polka dot fan….so much that I made it part of my wedding theme! I’ve been dying to get the iPhone since it came out. I have verizon but I think I might wait until the summer when they (hopefully!) come out with a version that can multi-task on verizon network. Who knows though, I might break down and get one before that happens 🙂

    Keep us updated on your thoughts on the Iphone! I haven’t switched to the darker side yet for the same reason as you…I really like having actual keys. Love the case you got!!!

  13. Jess@atasteofconfidence on January 14, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    I like your iphone case!

    Congrats on getting an iPhone, I love mine. And I love making nut butters at home, have you tried hemp butter?

  15. Jenna @ Eating Green, Staying Lean on January 14, 2011 at 7:13 pm

    That iPhone case is adorable, glad you’re liking the phone so far! It was a hard switch for me to make too but I’m glad I did. Not only are the credit card transactions cool, but the internet is WAY easier to navigate and read.
