-The best Amazon satire reviews. 

-THIS ICED COFFEE. I’ve been making my own lately, but was tempted at Whole Foods to give the store-bought stuff a whirl. It is amaze, even warmed up for a couple of minutes.

-A shout out in Good Housekeeping!

Good housekeeping

I was so excited to be included. Thank you again to Greta for sending along the pic <3

-New Reeboks. To be totally transparent, my first pair of these shoes were freebies from Reebok a little over a year ago. I wore my blue and yellow ones to teach and was stoked by how light and comfortable they were.

These ones I purchased with my own $ (using the 25% off discount all fitness professionals get! Wahoo!) since they’ve become my new running shoe.

My Brooks were starting to feel too stiff and heavy for my feet, so I decided to use the Reebok Cushions with no probs at all. They work perfectly with my Super Feet inserts. 

Exercises you can do with a partner.

-This dry shampoo. I usually prefer sprays instead of powdered dry shampoos, but picked this one up for travel and those days I don’t have time to wash and style my hair. It smells heavenly and takes the greaseball look away πŸ™‚

  17. Whenever you run out of the Oscar Blandi check out the one by Ojon! I love the scent of that one! My husband was gifted my Alterna and OB ones when I found it. He’ll have dry shampoo for the next 10 years haha!

      i love the ojon one! it’s the one i used before i got the oscar blandi. i think the ojon is more convenient but that the oscar blandi gets rid of grease better. they both smell awesome

  18. Thanks for the dry shampoo tip! I need to find one now that I’m swimming more in my fitness routine. I don’t have time in the morning to shampoo & condition before work.

  19. Happy Valentines Day! I definitely just cried reading the letter from the dad to his daughter and of course continued the waterworks reading the one about mom. It makes me want to drive 2 hours home just to give them a hug

  20. Happy Valentine’s Day to you too!!! πŸ™‚ Hope your day is full of love! πŸ™‚

  21. Beautiful picture of you and Liv!

  22. Ooo, I didn’t think they had prepared iced coffee with a non-dairy milk options. So keeping an eye out for that!!!

  23. Happy Valentine’s Day! Coffee and chocolate – two of my most favorite things πŸ™‚

  24. happy v-day to you & liv… and congrats on the good housekeeping shout out! πŸ™‚

    the article with the reasons your mom is the best person in your life… so true, so sweet <3

  25. That first photo of you and Livi is so darn cute! Love your matching tops! I have those same exact Reeboks that I’ve been using for my runs too – love them! I’ve never worn Reeboks for running, so I wasn’t sure how they’d do, but they’ve held up great so far.

  26. I really need some dry shampoo since I dyed my hair purplish/red and I can’t wash my hair very often. I’ve heard good things about Drybar products but the Oscar Blandi seems pretty popular! At least I know I’ve got a trustworthy recommendation from you!

  27. That is so awesome that your comment was in the magazine!

  28. That dry shampoo looks amazing! I’ve tried so, so many spray dried shampoos! Also, I want to try that iced coffee!

  29. Happy Valentines Day!
    The letter from the dad to his daughter is simply heart melting. It may be stating the obvious to say that there needs to be more dad’s in the world with his outlook…. but I will say it anyway πŸ™‚

  30. Loved the mom article and talking about sarcastic/funny amazon reviews, have you seen the ones for the 5lb bag of sugar free haribo gummy bears? Too funny!

  31. I have a hot grocery shopping date with WF this weekend and, uuuum, that iced coffee – looks AH-MAZING!!! πŸ˜€ The picture of you and Liv is too much!
    Thanks again for all the work you’ve done on WSU – having that accountability is getting me to push and keep my gym dates!

  32. I had too much chocolate today and yesterday and well, everyday. I tried a dry shampoo and just am not a fan, but I suppose nothing can replace washing your hair…

  33. yum! dark chocolate almonds are such a great treat!

  34. You’re very welcome! Dry shampoo is my fave trick! Saves so much time!

  35. I LOVE that iced coffee! The double espresso one is my fave. I’m also a huge fan of that dry shampoo…although, it tends to turn my black hair gray when I get too heavy-handed. The heavenly smell more than makes up for that!

    P.S. I ordered the RxBars you featured on your Friday Faves last week…SOOOO good!!! The blueberry bars tastes like a blueberry muffin!! Yum.

  36. Oh my goodness – those chocolate covered almonds are making my mouth water lol! Congrats on your shout out in Good Housekeeping, that’s awesome!
    P.S. The matching shirts are too cute!

  37. is the 25% thing off real??? how did i now know that? do you just show them proof of your fitness professional job and you get a discount? i see a shopping spree in my future..

  38. Are the websites that dont directly link paid links for you? If so, is there a published acknowledgement? When hovering over the links to decide what to click I noticed it over the Reebok and the dry shampoo links. I’m pretty sure you need to be disclosing these…
