Whirlwind of awesomeness

Hey everyone!

Hope you’re having a wonderful and relaxing Sunday 😀

Disney was pretty much a whirlwind of awesomeness.


My pilot prince 😀

Before we met up with everyone at the parks, we got our workout on at the YMCA.

On the way to the gym, I munched a mini Raw Revolution spirulina bar and a nanner:



I did an hour and 40 minutes of Zumba (what can I say, I’m in love) while the pilot did weights and went for a run.

We got some protein at Planet smoothie:


(The Leapin’ Lizard, which is vegan and made with peaches and strawberries, and a scoop of Sun Warrior that I had in a baggie in my purse)

And some brunch at Panera, since it was already kind of late.

salmon (2)

I got the mediterranean salmon salad, with only lettuce, salmon, olives and onions (which were picked off).

We got ready, and met up with everyone at Epcot.

My homeland:


I soon swapped out that hot tea for a Bloody Mary 😉


We walked around Epcot, in the POURING rain (we were troopers!) and then went over to Magic Kingdom.

The boys:


The girls:

me and meg

We rode quite a few rides –the lines were super short!- and then decided it was snack time.

I had a Greek salad, which was full o’ delicious veggies, and they were so kind to make me one sans cheese.


I loaded it up with mushrooms and sautéed onions from the topping station- it was pretty much amazing.

We ended up staying until the park closed, and then met up with the rest of the familia at Rainforest Cafe.


I stuck with a salmon theme and ordered the cedar-planked salmon with no butter sauce and extra veggies instead of rice.


It was everything I could have wished for 😀

Since my brother’s birthday is Monday, we celebrated by ordering the famous volcano.



I actually didn’t munch any. Just wasn’t feeling it and was feeling very satisfied from my salmon and veg 😀

Yesterday’s Disney shenanigans had me constantly thinking about this guy….

Just watch, you’ll be amazed 😉


We’re off to bfast, then shopping and hitting the road back to Valdizzy 😀
Have a fabulous day and I’ll see you in the morning with Week 3 of the Winter Shape Up.

    I haven’t been to Disney in YEARS. I really want to take the kiddos. And I wouldn’t have been able to deny myself any of that volcano..Holy Moly! I could’ve eaten the whole thing myself (well, maybe not, but I would have LIKED TO!) Have a great night.

    Hey Gina! i’ve been reading your blog for a while, but this is my frst time to comment

    First, i wanted to say thank you so much for all of the workout ideas! I’ve been using alot of them lately since i’ve been doing more strength training and less cardio. Also, this is random (haha), but the other day at the gym i was passing by the zumba class and they were playing the song “The Queen and I” by Gym Class Heroes, and it was an awesome song to zumba to! Just thought i would let you know so you can check it out!

  7. Rosey Rebecca on February 1, 2010 at 7:46 am

    That video is ridiculous!! Glad you’re having an amazing time at Disney!

  8. Kailey (SnackFace) on February 1, 2010 at 9:26 am

    Awwww you and your pilot prince!! Seriously, I adore the two of you. Makes me hopeful, ya know?

    OK, so I commend that guy for being able to flip into his falsetto like that, but homeboy is flat on the higher pitches! And sings through his nose. Eeee, just not for me.

    Have a fab start to February, boo!

    Glad you had a great time; isn’t it funny how you can’t get the songs out of your head especially after all the kiddie rides!

  11. All Women Stalker on February 1, 2010 at 11:12 am

    I’d love to try a raw peanut butter cup. Or An almond butter cup, perhaps?

  14. caitlin on February 1, 2010 at 4:45 pm

  16. Athena on February 1, 2010 at 6:36 pm

    I search the web for inventive, interesting and intelligent blogs! So far YOU ARE IT GIRL! You walk the walk 🙂 I see so many copy cat “healthy” food blogs. Snore! Your blog had a uniqueness to it that is all you. LUV IT! I’m a fitness competitor so I’m always on the look out for off season eats and treats. I’d love the raw macaroon recipe???

    • Fitnessista on February 1, 2010 at 7:44 pm

      hey athena,
      thank you so much! <3 so freaking cool that you compete- i would LOVE to.. maybe one day?
      i'm keeping the roon recipe under wraps, for now… sorry!!!
      take care 😀

  17. Jessica on February 2, 2010 at 11:57 am

    HAHA my friends showed me that youtube video a few months back and i couldn’t get enough of it!!! That guy is so talented!! But his range freaks me out, like…how does he do that?! Hahaha

    So jealous of your d-land fiesta and hoping to head there soon enough! And now i’m craving rainforest cafe. I haven’t been to disney in years but that’s ALWAYS the restaurant we hit up whenever I do! XOXO
