Friday Faves 10.20

Hi friends! Happy Friday! How was the week? I hope you had a great one. What’s going on this weekend? We have an event for the girls’ school, Trunk or Treat, and we’re celebrating the Pilot’s bday a little early (and yes, his favorite cake is on the menu). I’d love to hear what you have going on!

Workwise, I’ve been doing a ton of functional testing for clients lately. As much as I love workout programming, this is close competition for being my favorite work-related task. I LOVE going through all of the data and creating custom action plans. I put on some binaural beats, sprawl out on the PEMF Go Mat (my code is FITNESSISTA15), and go through EVERYTHING. If you’ve been curious about functional testing as a 1:1 client, please let me know; I have three spots left as we wrap up 2023.

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!

 These wide leg pants

These straight jeans

This nude slip dress

These bow earrings

LOVE the cut of these ALC dresses (size up)

This black maxi

These drop earrings

Fitness, health, and good eats:

EquiLife has COFFEE! When they launched this past week, I was so pumped about it. Ever since I learned about how coffee is process, particularly how it’s decaffeinated, I’ve been pretty strategic about my coffee choices. I switched to decaf in the morning a few years ago, and when we got our Nespresso, I started drinking the organic pods since the taste of the decaf is horrible.

I’m so excited to try something new that’s free from the pesticides and mold that can negate the positive health benefits of coffee.

Here’s what’s exciting about this one:

Providing more than double the antioxidants found in blueberries

Contains Chlorogenic Acids (CGAs), a superior form of antioxidants

Effective at scavenging free radicals & preventing cell damage

Increases brain function & supports healthy levels of inflammation

Organic, single source coffee

Free from pesticides & mold

Whole bean, available in both regular (Revive) & decaf (Relax)

You can get a free bag of it here with a purchase of $99! (I would do a detox kit and a box of their chocolate brownie snack bars. You’ll have some tasty snacks and be ready for our community detox on January 8th! Use the code FITNESSISTA10 for 10% off, too.)

LOVE the Simple Mills protein pancake mix. It’s so good and the edges are a little crispy.

They’re especially amazing with berries on top and a side of chicken sausage.

Cinnamon apple pie ice cream.

Interesting links between seasons and metabolism.

You have to try this pumpkin baked oatmeal.

Happy Friday, friends! Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today and I’ll see ya soon!
