Happy FRIDAY everyone!! I’m currently on a plane heading home for some family time which includes getting to meet my new nephew, Chase! <3
While in the air, I thought I’d share some of my recent favorites for a good ol’ Friday Favorites post!
1 ) This week I got to do something that I’ve always wanted to do — be an athlete in a photoshoot/video for a company that I trust and know. It was an honor and a blast to work with my friends at CYBEX this past Wednesday as they are launching their new Hydro Rower.
It will be launching in less than 2 weeks and I absolutely LOVED it.
I mean…I spent a good amount of quality time on that thing from 7am to 2pm and I can tell you that not only do you get a good workout, but it’s comfortable & super high quality as all of their products are.
2) NAIL SWAG!
My friend Cyndi is so talented and I was looking for a “neutral fall nail” and she didn’t dissapoint! I went with the color “Taupe-less on the beach” (ha!) and added some triangle accent pointing forward as that’s the direction your goals should always be headed.
3) While we’re on the fall lovin’ theme — HOW CUTE are these Wantable items from my September order?!
The leaf wristlet is perfect as I’m always running in and our of the car and only need a wristlet most times. They were also SPOT ON with what I like — hiiii gold accents.
You can sign up at Wantable.com for a monthly personalized accessory package, fitness clothing package, or wardrobe package. They are an awesome company & I love working with them. Plus they help me out in the fashion department when I’m not in training clothes ;]
I’ve really been loving the whole bluetooth headphone thing in the gym as it’s SO much easier to not have a cord hanging or the ear buds falling out. My friends at 66 Audio sent their BTS Sport Headphones for me to try out & I am definitely a fan!
These are considered their more “sporty” product as the strap goes behind your head and not on top — I think I’m so used to having headphones go over the top of my head that at first I had to get used to the 66 Audio design — but it didn’t take long to start enjoying my Spotify playlist in no time.
The BTS Headphones are a sweat resistance design, comfortable on the ears, & they didn’t move around when I moved around. They are super easy to use as you just connect via Bluetooth on your phone and can play music from there — I choose Spotify so I can create playlists, etc.
5) New VEGA Protein Snack Bars in Chocolate Caramel & Chocolate Peanut Butter.
You all know I’m a fan of VEGA and have been for years. Their products are always awesome & made from whole food plant based sources. They just launched their new Protein Snack Bars & I was PUMPED because 1) I love protein bars 2) I eat at least 1 bar a day as I’m on the go & 3) chocolate caramel and chocolate peanut butter? YAASSS please.

6) You can only control you — so be positive!
I saw this sticky note the other night while doing laundry on a board about kindness — little did I know that after I took the picture, I found out it was my husband who wrote it. He was all pumped when he saw it on my snapchat!
It’s so true though — I’m totally honest about letting others bring me down or letting things out of my control make an impact on my day — it’s so important to check back in and realize that WE can control how we feel and how things make us feel.
In one post we covered goals, training, fall inspirations, chocolate, positivity, & protein — sounds like my kind of blog post ;]
I’m off to spend some time with the fam — I can’t wait! I hope you have an awesome weekend.
Be true to you,
