Friday Faves 2.23 – The Fitnessista

Hi friends! Happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend? The kids are on Rodeo break – it’s an Arizona thing!- so we’re enjoying sleeping in, fun adventures, and no homework (bless it). I’d love to hear what you have going on!

I’m on Day 5 of the CBO protocol and chugging along. It’s been very hard to live without garlic and onions, but I’ve been making lots of amazing veggie and protein-packed meals, in addition to the supplements. I’m going to be sharing my healing journey in an upcoming post; if you have any questions you’d like me to answer, please lmk in the comments!

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

Friday Faves 2.23


A little getaway to San Diego. The Pilot and I spent just over 24 hours in one of our favorite places for our good friend Jeremy’s 50th birthday. We’ve been friends with Betsy and Jeremy since Liv was in preschool and they’ve become like family. We’ve traveled all over with them, and will often meet up in various spots. We flew into San Diego on Saturday morning

and went straight to Liberty Station. We shopped, walked around, and got an awesome lunch at Tender Greens. We hung out at the hotel and then got ready for the party!

(While we were getting ready, we watched the John Mulaney special on Netflix. It was such a treat to watch Tv, together, during the day.)

The party was amazing, as expected. Betsy always has the best decor and an incredible spread. Chef Ron and his team were in the kitchen preparing all of the food, and they had a bartender on the patio mixing signature cocktails and drinks.

(I did a poll on IG to see if the Pilot should shave his mustache. 300+ people said YES, while about 16 said he should keep it. Those 16 people were enough to tell him to keep it around haha)

It was a very late, super fun night, and somehow I dragged my booty out of bed for a Sunday Lagree class at Define.

If you’re in San Diego, take a class with Carina! We used to teach barre together when we lived in SD, and she’s super fun and motivating. I love seeing her face and visiting her gorgeous studio whenever we’re in town!

We got breakfast at Liberty Station – we didn’t leave Point Loma the entire time – and then headed to the airport to make our way back to the crew. It’s wild how just one night can make you feel like a human again and so refreshed.

Read, watch, listen:

Just started this and it’s already living up to the hype.

Don’t forget to check out this week’s podcast with Angie Lee!

How admitting your weakness can actually make you stronger.

Fashion + beauty:

SUPER exciting Beautycounter launch coming next week. I haven’t been posting as much about Beautycounter lately because I haven’t been as excited about the new products. I’ve been waiting years for this to arrive, and it’s going to be GOOD.

It feels like spring this week, so of course I have my eye on some spring finds. I haven’t been loving the RTR selection as much lately, so I’ll likely pause for a while and shop for real instead 😉

Here are some of the things I have my eye on:

This midi dress

This short nap dress

This dress with sandals or dressed up for date nights

These heart earrings

These Birks

These ballet flats

This square-neck swimsuit

Fitness, health, and good eats:

New rebounder! I’ve been wanting one for a while to help support my lymphatic system and found this inexpensive one on Amazon. It was super easy to set up and it’s fun to play music and jump for 5-10 minutes. As expected, it’s a huge hit with the kids, too.

You need to try the best gluten-free brownies.

I appreciate this bit of science especially since women usually get the short end of the stick on these things.

Happy Friday, friends!


We will be happy to hear your thoughts
