Friday Faves 9.15 – The Fitnessista

Hello hello! Happy Friday! How was the week? We are on day 5 of our community detox and the feedback so far has been amazing! I’m doing 21 days for the first time and I already feel VERY good. I could see/feel a lot of swelling in my face and it’s gone now. My energy is better, I’ve slept better, and I don’t feel intimidated at all. (Though I’ll be ready for chocolate when this is all over.) If you still want to join, you can order your kit here and use FITNESSISTA10.

One of my dinners this week: sautéed shrimp and vegetables over cauliflower rice.

(The shrimp are blurry but Maze is the best part!)

What’s happening this weekend? We have a school event, baptism and a soccer game. I hope you have an amazing weekend!

It’s time for the weekly Fri Faves party. This is where I share some of my favorite finds from the week and from around the web. I always love hearing about your favorites too, so shout out something you like in the comments section below.

Favorites from Friday 9.15


Mold tests! What a favorite, right?! I am still researching my entire situation and mold exposure can contribute to intestinal imbalances and bacterial overgrowth. I know we were exposed to mold when we lived in San Diego (our little beach house was like 100 years old), but I was curious to see if we were exposed to mold here. I bought these little test discs. and place them in various places around the house. I won’t post the results (because EW) but we were shocked!!! The worst offenders were our couch and the carpet upstairs. We were planning on removing the carpet anyway, this just sped up the process, but that same day we were on the computer ordering a new couch.

Which brings us to the next favorite:

new sofa!

Our old brown Axis It had stood the test of time, but we retired it because it apparently didn’t do well in the humidity of San Diego and Georgia. We consider getting a new Axis, because they are amazing sofas, but in the end, we didn’t want to spend another 7k+ on a sofa. (I mean, that’s a Disney cruise lol).

We found this one at Macy’s. And I was pleasantly surprised! It’s the perfect size – it’s huge! – and super comfortable. Now the goal is just to try to keep it clean…

Fashion + beauty:

An updated set of glasses. I finally got back in touch (I thought I’d never see that day) and it’s been amazing.

But I’m still trying to take it easy during the day and usually wear my glasses when working from home. My other pair is Warby Parker, so I bought a new pair. This is the Clemente style.

I ordered this jumpsuit and can’t wait for it to arrive!

Vuori Fall Picks! I live in Vuori most days, especially when I work at home and then do a quick workout. Some of my favorite things are these. runners, these hoodies, sweatshirts, these monkeysand these bike shorts. I ordered some new things for fall and I love the new colors!

On the list:

this monkey

this tank

boyfriend joggers

This monkey

My favorite blush right now.

How to clear emotional clutter

One of my favorite IGs still!

Health and good nutrition:

HigherDOSE Red Light Neck Enhancer! She was very excited to receive this as a gift from HigherDOSE; I love it. I have to tell you, with my red light mask, eye mask and neck enhancer, it’s quite a spectacle hahaha. I’ll do a full review blog post, but I loved adding this to my routine. I feel like my neck and chest have more visible signs of aging and I would like to do everything I can to keep this skin healthy and smooth. You can check it here and use code FITNESSISTA15 for 15% off.

All Cauliflower Bagel Rolls.

A beautiful pumpkin pie.
