Friday Faves

 My little heart  1 of 1 3

-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.

Reeboks  1 of 1

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™‚

    Oooo…I have to try that dry shampoo. I have very oily hair but have been getting lazy about showering lately. πŸ™‚ How many uses do you get out of one bottle?

    • Fitnessista on February 14, 2014 at 4:50 pm

      quite a few. i’ve used it at least 10 times and still have 2/3 of the bottle left

  6. Paige @ Your Trainer Paige on February 14, 2014 at 11:14 am

  7. Morgan on February 14, 2014 at 11:22 am

    Happy Valentine’s Day! Yay for the dark chocolate my stepsons bought me πŸ™‚ Does it count as an ‘off day’ when you have to shovel 2 feet of a 30 foot driveway? (ok hubby helped but whoa we are beat!)

    • Fitnessista on February 14, 2014 at 4:49 pm

      that totally counts as a workout!

  8. Hillary | Nutrition Nut on the Run on February 14, 2014 at 11:32 am

    I’m definitely going to hunt down that iced coffee… hoping Target has it!

  9. Kristen on February 14, 2014 at 11:39 am

    Happy Valentines Day!! I’m actually really excited about this one,
    Josh and I are canceling our dinner reservations and going to get takeout and lounge on the couch so I can hopefully kick this stupid two week cold!

    • Fitnessista on February 14, 2014 at 4:43 pm

      that sounds wonderful! hope you feel better soon <3

  16. Jackie on February 14, 2014 at 1:33 pm

    That coffee sounds great!

  17. Kathleen on February 14, 2014 at 2:16 pm

    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!

    • Fitnessista on February 14, 2014 at 4:42 pm

      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. Megan @ TheSkinny-Life on February 14, 2014 at 2:18 pm

    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.

    • Fitnessista on February 14, 2014 at 4:42 pm

      dry shampoo is a lifesaver πŸ™‚

  19. Melissa on February 14, 2014 at 2:23 pm

    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

    • Fitnessista on February 14, 2014 at 4:41 pm

      seriously <3 hope you have a great weekend.

  20. Zaneta @ Runner's Luck on February 14, 2014 at 2:31 pm

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

    • Fitnessista on February 14, 2014 at 4:41 pm

  21. Jessica on February 14, 2014 at 2:44 pm

    Beautiful picture of you and Liv!

    • Fitnessista on February 14, 2014 at 4:41 pm

      thank you!

  22. char eats greens on February 14, 2014 at 3:01 pm

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

    • Fitnessista on February 14, 2014 at 4:41 pm

      it’s AMAZING

  23. Sara @ LovingOnTheRun on February 14, 2014 at 3:29 pm

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

    • Fitnessista on February 14, 2014 at 4:40 pm

      amen to that πŸ™‚

  24. april on February 14, 2014 at 3:30 pm

    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

    • Fitnessista on February 14, 2014 at 4:40 pm

      thank you!!
      right?! i loved it too πŸ™‚ hope you have a great weekend

  25. Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries on February 14, 2014 at 5:46 pm

    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. Alex @ Kenzie Life on February 14, 2014 at 6:39 pm

    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. Bri on February 14, 2014 at 6:52 pm

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

  28. Sarah on February 14, 2014 at 8:14 pm

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

  29. Jessica on February 14, 2014 at 8:18 pm

    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. Michelle on February 14, 2014 at 9:07 pm

    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. Karissa on February 14, 2014 at 11:26 pm

    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. Julie on February 15, 2014 at 2:21 am

    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. Livi on February 15, 2014 at 6:40 am

    yum! dark chocolate almonds are such a great treat!

  34. Greta on February 15, 2014 at 9:23 am

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

  35. JC on February 15, 2014 at 2:54 pm

    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. Jasmyne Teoma @ SpiceItUpFitness on February 15, 2014 at 3:29 pm

    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. Christina on February 15, 2014 at 11:13 pm

    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. jen on February 16, 2014 at 12:19 am

    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…

    • Fitnessista on February 16, 2014 at 7:08 pm

      the FTC doesn’t require you to disclose affiliate links, but it’s polite to do so, which is why this info is found on my about page: https://fitnessista.com/about/ thanks for supporting the blog <3
