Friday Faves 2.9 – The Fitnessista

Friday Faves 2.9 – The Fitnessista

Hi friends! Happy Friday! How was the week? I hope you had a great one! Ours was pretty low-key. The Pilot flew nights, the girls had all of their usual events and activities, and I’ve been here working on blog content, client calls, and podcast interviews. We have an event this weekend that I’m looking forward to, and I’m still looking for a dress. If you wait until the last minute, it only takes a minute. 😉

Other than the event, I’m teaching barre, working on some fitness programming, and it’s movie night at the kids’ school.

It’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party! This is where I share some of 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 2.9


We went to the Annual Fighter Wing awards banquet in Phoenix and it was a blast as usual. It’s fun to see friends we haven’t caught up with in a long time and also celebrate some hardworking and inspiring squadron members.

It was hard to believe that this was the last time the Pilot will ever wear mess dress. This time next year, he’ll be RETIRED!! Tbh, I’m more than ready, but I can tell it’s going to be bittersweet for him. His military career has been a huge part of his identity for so long, and I know he’ll miss it.

I’m definitely looking forward to more stability and a return to the airlines, but I’ll definitely miss seeing him in his mess dress and flight suit. 🙂

(dress was from RTR. It wasn’t my fave dress I’ve ever rented, but all of my top picks were gone. It was ok for the occasion.)

Since we were in Phoenix, the kids requested a hike at Camelback. It’s probably their favorite hike, which doesn’t surprise me at all.

They climb and skip around while I fear for everyone’s lives. It’s a great time, I tell ya 😉

The first climb is extremely intense – you can hold onto guard rails because it’s so steep and high –

but after that, the intensity goes down a bit. It’s an incredible view, and the weather was perfection.

We also tried the Original Chop Shop for the first time, and it was SO, so good. I got the gf hummus and veggie wrap (added chicken) and we’ll definitely be back.

High Performance Health. This is going to be my first 2024 certification and I’m so excited to dive into this one. HPH is all about longevity and biohacking, so I’m excited to use this information for intermediate and advanced clients to make the most out of their routines, and get very strategic about daily habits. I’ll share more along the way! If you’d like to be my study buddy, you can check it out here and enter the code FITNESSISTA for $100 off.

Fashion + beauty:

New Beautycounter body butter. I’m waiting for mine to arrive and can’t wait to try it. I LOVE a body butter with clean ingredients – especially during these chilly winter months – and this is in the lovely Monoi scent. Check it out here. 

Ordering this dress for spring. It looks like a Nap Dress and is less than half the price!

Also adding this to cart. I love lounge sets so much right now.

Read, watch, listen:

Definitely check out this week’s podcast interview. We’re chatting all about seed oils.

 What are your simple pleasures?

Enjoying this audiobook right now. Lots of helpful tips and encouragement to shift more to investments.

Fitness + good eats:

You have to try these homemade peanut butter protein bars.

More reasons to practice self-compassion. 

Gf oat flour tahini chocolate chip cookies. 

Happy Friday, friends! Have an amazing weekend and I’ll see ya soon.



We will be happy to hear your thoughts
