Friday Faves

Hi friends! Happy Friday. I’m sending love to my friends in Texas and surrounding areas who have been affected by the extreme weather and storms. If you’re looking for ways to help, check out this post.

Our week was pretty low-key. The Pilot made it back after his flights were canceled for weather, and I’m looking forward to catching up on work stuff (new Fit Team workouts go out next weekend!), family movie night, and watching the girls ride horses.

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.


– We saw our friends Betsy and Jeremy last weekend for Betsy’s birthday. (Of course we followed all protocols while we were together, as we always do.)  It was nice to catch up with Betsy – we always just pick up where we left over – and laugh at the boys’ shenanigans. 

Dress was from Rent the Runway:

A couple of foodie pics!

Plant based diet vs. low carb vs. animal based diet. 

The benefits of recovery runs and how slow to go.

Read, watch, listen:

– We finished Bridgerton and I have SO MANY THOUGHTS. I can’t wait for Season 2!!! What do we watch next? I tried to find the Britney documentary on Hulu but it looks like it may have been deleted?

– Just for LOLs:

(Phil Collins really went for it on that soundtrack)

Happy Friday, friends!

    I love the grey dress you’re wearing! Wheres it from? Sounds like a fun night out.

    I had trouble finding the Britney documentary, too, but I just watched it last night so it’s definitely still there. I ended up getting there by talking into my fire remote and it found it for me lol. It’s an episode of New York Times Presents so you have to go to that to get to the episode.

    • Fitnessista on February 19, 2021 at 12:19 pm

      Ok good to know! I searched for it and nothing would come up. I’ll try that tonight!

    Disappointing to see you out and about – I know you are wearing masks but you are so close to others, indoors! I assume it’s the less strict rules in Arizona?

    • Fitnessista on February 19, 2021 at 1:15 pm

      there are different rules in every state. i am home alone with the girls probably 90% of the time which has been difficult on everyone’s mental health. it was very nice to be out in the world and be a human for a second, while following all of the safety protocols

        I think it’s strange you didn’t mention you went to Vegas but I guess that’s because people will comment about coronatravel.

    • Elly on February 20, 2021 at 4:28 pm

      It’s mental health. We need to see our family and friends. The consequences of almost a year of lockdown will be much worse than the virus itself. Don’t be disappointed.

    • Jen on February 20, 2021 at 5:59 pm

      It’s disappointing to see the need for you to ronashame. I have traveled across the United States since Feb 2020, and have not gotten the Rona virus. It’s time for you to got off your high horse and get on with your life!!!

      • Kim on February 24, 2021 at 7:59 pm

        Good for you! I haven’t traveled at all but still got it because I teach people’s kids. I was out of work for NINE weeks in 2020 because of illness from the virus. It’s not about being on a high horse, it’s just about reality.

  4. Amanda on February 19, 2021 at 1:17 pm

    Re: the britney documentary-I had the same problem last night. You have to search for “The New York Times Presents” and it’s episode 6 from this season. ENJOY! I loved it 🙂

    • Fitnessista on February 19, 2021 at 1:23 pm

      thank you for the tip!! i was like why is it missing?!?

  5. Molly on February 19, 2021 at 1:44 pm

    The RTR dress is – purple is gorgeous on you!

    • Molly on February 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm

      My fire emoji didn’t work! (Insert shrug emoji!)

  6. Tracy on February 19, 2021 at 5:14 pm

    We just finished The Imposters on Netflix. Very entertaining! I loved the characters & the storyline.

    Looked like a fun get together with your friends! TGIF & have a great weekend 🙂

    I can’t make the Beautycounter event on the 26th (its my birthday!) but do you have a coupon code or something? I’d love to try their new clean deodorant but I have really sensitive skin its pretty $$ for a deodorant to take a chance on. thanks!

    • Fitnessista on February 20, 2021 at 10:14 pm

      Ahh happy birthday!! Have you ordered before? You can use the code CLEANFORALL20 for 20% off if you’re a new client!! I’m not sure if it works on the deo because it’s so new. Try it and if it doesn’t work, email me and I’d be happy to Venmo you the 20%. You’ll love it!

  8. Amy on February 22, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    I love that you got to see Betsy and have some fun with friends 🙂 You all look GREAT and I love the purple dress on you.
    My husband and I just finished The Flight Attendant on HBO Max and I thought it was great. Very entertaining and each episode left me wanting more. I thought Kaley Cuoco was amazing in it too!

    • Fitnessista on February 23, 2021 at 5:55 pm

      thank you so much!! it was so nice to see them 🙂
      ohhh ok i’ll check it out – thank you!

  9. Lauren on February 23, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Recommend Ted Lasso on Apple TV! I always feel like it’s easy to find good dramas but hard to find good comedies! My husband and I burned through the first season this weekend. It is a funny feel good show that makes you happy! Much needed now more than ever!

    • Fitnessista on February 25, 2021 at 2:52 pm

      ok we definitely need to watch this!
