No, I have not run this week
Yes, it is tuesday.
No, I have not done any cardiovascular activity this week.
But I did yoga... woot woot

So, on to my fav thing: Cheesecake

I love cheesecake and I've had a lot of different types of cheesecake.

First: The Cheesecake Factory
*Ok, I'm NOT a fan of chain restaurants. I HATE them but for whatever reason, I've been to a bunch of Cheesecake Factory's and they are delicious, especially the cheesecake. Here are some of the different types I've tried:

Fresh Strawberry

Godiva's Chocolate Cheesecake (my fav)

Key Lime Cheesecake

Pumpkin Cheesecake

Yes... I have tried these all (all pics from the Cheesecake factory website) 


My friend Jane also made a delicious cheesecake that was a mix of cream cheese and ricotta cheese. Read about it here: Jane makes a cheesecake


Lastly, there is this little Italian restaurant here in Greenville, SC named Giovanni's. It is the most delicious place ever here in SC. It is owned by a little Italian man. There is no website, no nothing. It's just there. and it's wonderful. I had Gnocchi with a Gorgonzola cream sauce and smoked salmon. BUT what is important is that their cheesecake was made with Ricotta cheese and IT. WAS. DELICIOUS. It was creamy, not heavy, the way Italians like it. I think about it a lot. I want it to live with me... but I will be fat... so I'll just go there every once in a while. 

So... that's my fitblog for today... about yummy cheesecake. 


  1. Umm thank you for the shoutout in the cheesecake blog!! I am touched that you put me in the same ranks as Cheesecake Factory and Giovanni's...funny story, we just got back from dinner @ Giovanni's and I'm so full/happy I could pass out...I took your recommendation and got the gnocchi w/ smoked salmon and gorgonzola cream sauce and of course the cheesecake! It was all delicioussss...so so good.

  2. Ps-my cheesecake was just cream cheese and sour cream actually...no ricotta! :)
