Wild Goose Chase

Hi guys! How are ya? Hope the rest of your weekend was lovely and your week is off to a great start 🙂

I’m blogging from the pilot’s new laptop:

pilots laptop

We took Pinkie to get fixed and since the pilot’s laptop was on the fritz, we decided to get him a new one instead of getting his laptop fixed as well. I kind of like it and LOVE the classy maroon color- matches our TV exactly!

After spending two hours of our lives at Best Bizzle, we came back to the casa for dinner and Next Food Network Star (Team Aarti!)

The pilot had Atlanta Bread Company and I had a smoked salmon eggstada:


-3 egg whites

-smoked salmon

-dill from the garden

-gout gouda

Dessert was a shared bar of Green & Black dark chocolate 🙂

This morning, I was in a crepe-y kinda mood.


I *tried* adding protein to the original recipe and I have to say, it’s better without. If it ain’t broke….

I also had a side of insanity when I went to blog and my memory card wouldn’t fit in the new computer. I thought Sony and Samsung were friends? Apparently not. So I went on a wild good chase, with bedhead and sweats all over Valdosta until I found THIS, 3 stores and many phone calls later.

A memory card reader. Sahweet!

The plan for the day:

-Winsor Pilates in the yoga room (my muscles are tiiiiight)


-Lunch + blog

-TURBOFIRE Fire 45 + Stretch 10

-Training two new clients

-Romantic din-din with the seksi pilot

Have a wonderful day!!



Something to talk about: What workout do you get really excited about doing?? Right now, I am loving TurboFire. I’m so stoked about every workout, especially because it feels like I’m actually taking a group fitness class. I really miss taking huge classes with 50 people screaming and having a blast, and TurboFire is doing an excellent job of filling the void. It’s also exciting because I’m doing something totally different- I’ve never really been into kickboxing before, so it’s been a fun challenge 🙂

Something else to talk about: Reader’s Requests! If there’s a topic you’d like to see on the bloggy this week, please hit me up in the comments <3

    I always get psyched for BodyPump – it’s great!

    Hi Gina!
    I’ve been reading your blog for a while and forward a lot of your posts to my friends who are trying to eat/live better!
    Anyway, sometimes being a Latina girl who is trying to eat healthy is not easy! I’ve been wanting to ask you for a while now to post some ‘healthier’ Latin cuisine ideas? My husband and I are Puerto Rican and grew up eating A LOT of white rice, beans, and fried foods =) I’ve been able to cut a lot of stuff out but I’m having issues with getting my husband to eat some of the same things. Any ideas?
    Thanks for having such an awesome blog!

    I am a new reader so you might have already covered this but I would love to hear how you and the pilot met.

    What can I do about the cellulite on my legs? I fee like they are strong, I am a smaller size, good definition, but can not get the cellulite to go away! please help!

  5. Anne on July 12, 2010 at 2:19 pm

    i’m surprised you haven’t switched over to a mac. you seem more like an apple gal than a pc :o)

    i’d like to see shortening recovery time between workouts. for example, what are the best foods to eat after a workout so you could hit the gym later or the next day with little fatigue. i know your body needs rest after an intense workout, but how do athletes do it when they’re practicing several hours a day, 5-6 days a week

    Go team Aarti! She’s so sweet and is totally my favorite too! I look forward to group class workouts, because they change things up (no more boring cardio!) and get me motivated and are just more fun and social!

  7. Cynthia on July 12, 2010 at 3:31 pm

    I’ve got a read request. Salad dressings – a post on your favorites to buy and your favorites to make. Sometimes I really want a salad, but I can’t figure out a dressing to put on it.

    Reader request: please discuss what you feel is appropriate “dieting” and exercising versus what is extreme and borderline disordered. As in, is it really necesssary to feel bad about adding FRUIT to your smoothie? I mean, really, who gets fat off strawberries? Something like that 🙂 I’ve been seeing some people freak out over eating FRUIT and I think it’s flippin’ ridiculous. Oh, and maybe scale use (how frequently to weight in), getting obsessive about water intake, feeling totally guilty about a few bites of a shake…and the like. I’m just so annoyed by obsessive and convoluted ideas on food and exercise and GUILT! Ack! Why can’t we all just find our “happy” place in knowing what is OK and not obsessive and destructive to our health? I think you would be an excellent voice of reason!

      that’s a great idea for a post. i get so upset when i train new clients and they tell me their last trainer said they couldn’t have pineapple or banana. blows my mind! it’s fruit for goodness sake

    I’m really excited about doing spin class again!

  10. Christine on July 12, 2010 at 5:20 pm

    would love to read more about your dogs. how did you manage them as puppies? how do you fit in all your working out and everything with them? I have a little puppy and he is SO demanding of my time and I can’t seem to get anything done without feeling like I’m neglecting him :/ when I am home, he wants constant attention and refuses to play on his own if you leave him. he was a too-young rescue and is very needy and demanding. he’s not fully potty trained and he can’t really be left alone. it’s so frustrating and I feel like if I ignore him or leave him, I am being a bad dog owner and he isn’t getting enough attention, play time, potty training, etc. I am a full time student so once the Fall semester starts, it’s going to be tough. right now I only work out 1x a week but I’d like to make it 5-6x a week. can’t imagine having the dog and going to school full time and commuting as well as all my other family stuff. so frustrated 🙁 any tips would be great! and he refuses to crate train (tried for over a month…can’t afford it anymore after he destroyed 2 crates totaling over $120, as well as a dog play pen over $70 sigh).

      Have you looked into taking an obedience class with your puppy? It sounds like he needs discipline and obedience training more than the attention.

    Maybe this is a little lame, but would love to see some pictures of how you organize your pantry… I end up having all these bags… chia seeds, maca… oats, dried fruits, nuts. It end up getting really messy.

  12. Laura (B Foxy Fitness) on July 12, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    Oh man, that computer is sleeeek! I absolutely LOVE group fitness! Working out on your own is okay…but I agree that being in a room with 20 other people who are just as jazzed to move, shake, and dance as you are is amazing! I teach TurboKick (the group fitness version of TurboFire) and every workout is like a sweat/dance/kick-fest. Right now I’m loving the new round and music.

  13. Brynne on July 12, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    I get reallyyyy excited to run to new music!

  14. brittney on July 12, 2010 at 10:44 pm

    My reader request is a post about all the conflicting information about health and nutrition. Paleo vs. Vegetarian. Exercise only makes you hungrier. Eating too few calories will slow your metabolism and you won’t lose weight…yet it seems to work for celebrities and models!

    Any guidance you can give on all the conflicting fitness and food info out there would be awesome.

  15. Brandy on July 13, 2010 at 10:49 am

    I’d TOTALLY watch any show that Aarti puts out. She’s such a doll!

    Could you talk about (or direct me to something) for people who don’t like group fitness? I’ve taken three classes at my gym, and I really don’t like the feel of group stuff. I like the workout, but I feel stared at, crowded, and judged. Suggestions?


  16. Jessie on July 13, 2010 at 2:05 pm

    Hi Gina,

    First of all, I love my Sun Warrior protein! Like – really, really love it. So thank you!

    I would love to hear your opinion on plastic surgery. I am a healthy weight, very active, love to cook healthy options for my husband and myself. I’m happy and life is good. The only constant annoyance: I do not even fill out an A cup. I’ve been considering breast implants for years.

    What are your thoughts on going under the knife?
