Friday Faves – The Fitnessista

Hello friends! Happy Friday! How’s your week going? The weekend is a good start. I met up with a friend for a Pure Barre class. The Reform class included bands and sliders for a strong strength workout and a smoothie. Next up was a quick trip to the chiropractor, a stop at the girls’ school, and now it’s time for the wedding celebration.

Tomorrow is my brother Trevor’s wedding and I can’t wait for the giant festival with the family. Last year, Trevor and his wife eloped in Vegas, but now it’s time to celebrate! The pilot is officiating the ceremony (!) and I can’t wait to see family members we haven’t seen in forever. Hope you have a great weekend ahead too!

A little something new on the blog. partner page. I always love (and am so grateful) when you guys ask me for referral/affiliate links and shop my links. I thought it would be nice to put my favorite brands and discount codes on one page so it’s easy to find, and as always I’m happy to help or send a link or discount code if I have one.

In full transparency, ad revenue has declined over the past few years and affiliate income has become the bulk of my income (along with digital product sales/memberships and coaching). I just wanted to say a big thank you for shopping my links and supporting the lil blog. The affiliate page is here if you want to check it out.

It’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party! This is where I share my favorite finds of the week and around the web. I always love to hear about your favorites too, so please shout out what you like in the comments section below.

Friday Faves:


New Aviator Nation hoodie. These are the best hoodies in the whole country. Betsy got me and they are so crazy soft. Once you go to AN, you’ll never go back. I chose gray to go with everything. Perfect for lounging, layering with gym clothes and travelling.

I’m at a special point in life where I’m excited about mouthwash. lol I don’t usually use regular mouthwashes because the ingredients can be sketchy, but I found this one at Thrive Market that had great reviews. It does have a slime flavor from the fennel, so don’t order it if you hate the taste of fennel, but if you like the taste of fennel, you’ll be a fan.

Still obsessed with the Hatch light.

I’ve been trying to figure out why I haven’t been feeling so stressed in the mornings lately, and I really think this light has made a huge difference. It’s so peaceful to wake up to soft light and chirping birds instead of a screeching iPhone alarm. I also like to relax at night. I hit snooze when I start to fall asleep and within 15 minutes it plays the sound of choice (I chose Moonlight Melodies, which is a gentle piano) and the clock simulates a sunset. I usually crash before the 15 minutes are up.

Read, watch, listen.

I started watching Glass onion. knife out mystery while I was relaxing in a sauna blanket and still am.

Finished this book and wow! I have so many thoughts and I’m sure it will be hard to express everything in this month’s book review post, but it was devastating, hopeful, and beautifully done.

Diet mistakes to stop in 2023

What’s your #1 travel tip?

An interesting study is the training schedule. My two cents. any movement is better than no movement, so I wouldn’t stress about timing your workouts (unless it’s 2-3 hours before bed).

Fitness + good eating.

Butcher Box Delivery! The next few months are crazy so I ordered a few extra items to have on hand. We source almost all of our meat entirely from Butcher Box. The quality is much better (organic, wild-caught options, grass-fed) and much cheaper than Whole Foods. Nice to have our garage freezer stocked with high quality fish and meat. I ordered corned beef (their best for St. Patrick’s Day), brisket, whole chicken, chicken thighs, pulled pork, ground beef, ground turkey, and steak. Their ads are always changing and it’s so good right now. use this link and get $30 off, free grilled cheese and free chicken 🙂

If you’re looking for new meal ideas and a workout routine, join us for Spring Shape Up! Access information is here. it’s a brand new platform and it’s the one I use for Fit Team and it’s completely free. The fun starts on February 27th, and I’ll be adding content to the platform all week next week so you’ll have everything you need to get ready and running on the 24th. (Also, if you don’t want to do this as a challenge, DON’T bother. Please don’t let this be a stressor in your life, instead use it to get community support and free resources.)

Fashion + beauty.

I ended up ordering another dress for the wedding – we were asked to wear black – and decided on this one. The fit is more flattering and the fabric is amazingly beautiful. P will be wearing this dress and I’m still trying to finalize Leo’s outfit. If you wait until the last minute, it only takes a minute. 😉

Beautycounter gift with purchase on orders over $125 (can collect CLEANFORALL30 for 30% off for new customers).

Glowing skin is made by the best

Week-long discounts in stores. 25% off styles like this dress , this dress and this dress .
