Friday Faves

Hi friends! Happy Friday! What’s going on this weekend? I still can’t believe we’re back into the weekend. This week FLEW BY, which was ok with me, because it was a crazy one. It feels like one of those weeks where we were busy every second, but when I look back, I’m not quite sure what happened. I’m just trying to get time to slow the heck down because the girls are growing and our time in Tucson is blazing past me. Finding a house in Valdosta has put a little pep in my step -I loooooooove decorating new spaces!- and I’ve already started to talk to some gyms and studios about teaching. It will be nice to settle into a routine one day, but for now, we’re just doing our thing and enjoying.

What are you up to this weekend?? The Pilot and I are going out for dinner + drinks one night, I’m working with Grant to film an upcoming barre challenge (I hope you’ll join in the fun! I’ll share more details soon), and we’ll be hanging out outside and by the pool. I hope you have an amazing weekend.

For now, here are some faves from the week and around the web. I always love to hear about your faves, too, if you’d like to shout them out in the comments section!  

Livi and p rose

(Love this picture of the two of them. It was during lunch at my mom’s house, and I asked them to smile and P buried her head next to her sis in the sweetest little way.)

This made me cry laughing. 21, 23, 26, and 33 made me laugh the hardest.

Excellent comments in this post.

You are more than a meal plan.

Non-cheesy motivational quotes.

Current uniform: black nikes, black tank dress, cargo jacket (similar), giant sunnies to hide my lack of makeup.

The uniform

What to do if you don’t love fitness. 

50 thoughts you might have during yoga.

Still LOVING this brand of bone broth. It’s savory, delicious, and perfect warmed in a mug at the end of the day.

Bone broth

The tiered Shopbop sale is heeeeeeere. I always look forward to this one, and it’s such a great opportunity to get gorgeous designer pieces for way less.

Here are some of my Spring faves from the sale:

  4. LeeAnn on March 3, 2017 at 7:13 am

    I love your style so much! But….I must say that you are killing me with all of the adorable summer clothes! (Not really, just making me overly excited for Spring/Summer) hahahaha. It is going to hit 40 degrees here in Steamboat this week and maybe I will bust out some short sleeves for a run 😉

    • Fitnessista on March 3, 2017 at 10:25 am

      ahhh i can’t wait for spring/summer clothes! i always feel like a goober dressing myself in the winter (which really isn’t even that cold)

  5. Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious on March 3, 2017 at 7:40 am

    Oh…the girls are just too sweet in the pic! Is it just me or has P suddenly become a mini Liv? So big already! And I loved Ashley’s post this week too. It’s easy to forget how hard it is for some to start a healthy habit.

    • Fitnessista on March 3, 2017 at 10:20 am

      right?! it happened so quickly

  6. Reenie on March 3, 2017 at 7:55 am

    That photo of the girls….. adorable. Livi’s eyes ~ oh my!! P’s lil pony tail sticking straight out. HA!! 🙂

    • Fitnessista on March 3, 2017 at 10:20 am

      they are quite the pair 😉

  7. Jamie @ madrediem on March 3, 2017 at 7:58 am

    That picture gave me all the feels! How cute! My husband has an old Army friend coming to town for the weekend, so I’m sure we’ll be crazy busy all weekend eating all the food and going to all the breweries in Orlando!

    • Fitnessista on March 3, 2017 at 10:20 am

      awww hope you enjoy orlando! if you find any good new spots, please let me know!

  8. Amanda on March 3, 2017 at 8:10 am

    I am excited about the barre challenge! Maybe I can teach my Xtend Barre teachers a thing or two. 😉 Either that, or tell them “the Fitnessista said…” Send any and all house rental finding tips my way. I can use some of your house hunting prowess.

    • Fitnessista on March 3, 2017 at 10:20 am

      that would be amazing!!
      ahhh rental houses. i’m basically just a stalker. i would stalk zillow and any local property management companies

      • Amanda on March 3, 2017 at 11:34 am

        Thanks! I know to stalk Zillow. I’ll start familiarizing myself with local property management companies, too. I’m also shouting from the rooftops, so to speak, and my friends in those neighborhoods know to ask their neighbors for me. Have a great weekend with your fam!

  9. Juliana on March 3, 2017 at 8:52 am

    okay i see that bathing suit and all i can think is “omg but the tan lines…”

    also i found this article to be very interesting:

    • Fitnessista on March 3, 2017 at 10:19 am

      yes, the tan lines might be a little crazy, but worth it
      loved the article, too. such great tips for LIFE, let alone healing an imbalance
      have a happy weekend

  10. Cassie on March 3, 2017 at 9:29 am

    That buzz feed post is hilariouz. Coffee time or wine time… because it’s one or the other. Thanks for sharing.

    • Fitnessista on March 3, 2017 at 10:18 am

      hahah there is no in between

  11. Stephanie B. on March 3, 2017 at 9:35 am

    Ooh I’m excited about the barre challenge!! Really enjoyed WSU and am sort of repeating it again (best laid plans…) but I’m looking forward to a new challenge 🙂 That picture of Liv and P is so cute!!

    This weekend I’m looking forward to trying out a crepe place (YUM) that I’ve been wanting to go to for awhile, and meeting up with an old friend. I’ll also be finishing up wedding invitations and hopefully getting them in the mail – our wedding is 3 months from today, eek!!

    • Fitnessista on March 3, 2017 at 10:17 am

      yay, so excited you’ll be joining in!!
      enjoy the weekend, too. it sounds like a good one! so excited for you and your upcoming wedding <3

  12. Tracy on March 3, 2017 at 11:09 am

    Looking forward to the barre challenge! I’ve been wanting to add barre into my fitness. This will be a good way to try it out!

  13. Sam @ Hygge Wellness on March 3, 2017 at 11:18 am

    Excited about the Barre video! I loved that post from Hummusapien, too! I can definitely relate to it. Hope you guys have a great weekend!

  14. Carrie (This Fit Chick) on March 5, 2017 at 11:03 am

    Woah that one piece would leave you with a very unique tan line- HAH! I love that off the shoulder ruffled top. I’m so into off the shoulder lately!
