Let’s HitTheBarreWithZICO: My FlyBarre Experience

I love a good barre class! Why? I think it is the perfect way to get in resistance training while also hitting ALL the areas that people want to target. It is a true full body workout with arms, abs, legs and booty. Best of all, it can be modified to fit all fitness levels. So when I got invited to HitTheBarre with Zico Coconut Water, I was so excited. This was my first FlyBarre 45 class & I loved it so much, I’ve taken a few since. hitthebarre-68

Get Your Greens: Summertime Mango Coconut Smoothie

love green smoothies. They are quick, easy to make and take on the go, & extremely nutritious. If you are not a huge fan of eating greens like kale or spinach, a green smoothie is a very delicious way to get your greens in. I love to have them for breakfast, an afternoon pick me up or even a meal replacement. They are also super refreshing post workout. 
 
A few weeks ago at a Flywheel event, Zico Coconut Water prepared a green smoothie for us to enjoy post cycle class. It was so yummy and so refreshing, I had to share the recipe with you!FlyWithZico-56
 
 This particular smoothie is perfect post workout because you have the hydrating coconut water combined with the fruit. You get the carbs and electrolytes you need after a good sweat. You could add in some vanilla protein powder and it would perfect!IMG_5802

A few weeks ago,  my friend, Portia, from Obsessed by Portia, invited me to the FLY with Zico event, I was so excited!! I could not wait to enjoy one of my favorite workouts with fellow Seattle bloggers, influencers and wellness professionals! It was a total blast. Both Zico and FlyWheel outdid themselves!!  Continue reading 5 Reasons I love to FLY!!

Friday Faves – Fall edition

This is my first ‘Friday Faves’ post on my blog! This post is exactly what it sounds like, I am sharing a few of my current favorite things with you on a Friday! There are A LOT of things I am loving right now (both fitness & non-fitness related) check out my FAVES 🙂

Friday Faves – Fall 2015

1. Quest Pumpkin Pie Protein BarScreen Shot 2015-10-16 at 1.32.36 AMI have seen mixed reviews about this bar. Some people love it (me!) and others do not like it. I think it is DELISH and perfect for this time of year. It is different from the other Quest bars because it has a coating (yum) and some graham cracker type crunch on the outside. It is also limited edition. It has done wonders to satisfy my fall cravings and I HIGHLY recommend that you try it. Check it out HERE! 

2. Kendra Scott Necklaces

My current accessory of choice! These are high quality pieces that are both timeless and stylish at the same time. They match so many different outfits and come in a bunch of different colors. These are my two favorite styles 

‘Elisa’ Pendant Necklace

lovin’ the black sparkle for fall..

 

 

 

 

 

 
‘Rayne’ Stone Tassel Pendant Necklace

I love the gunmetal and turquoise – really plays up an outfit. I also have this necklace in black and gold. So many possibilities with so many colors

 

 

 

3. Wine Lip Color

To me, wine lipstick just screams fall. It’s a bold lip that elevates any outfit and adds a look of glam. 

Giorgio Armani ‘Rouge Ecstasy’ Lipstick – 601

This is my favorite ‘wine’ or ‘merlot’ colored lipstick. Good staying power and perfect balance of gloss and glam. 

 

 

 

MAC ‘The Matte Lip’ Lipstick – Ruby Woo

Red Matte Lip. Need I say more.

 

 

Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain – 301 Le Rouge

This lip stain is my FAVORITE! It stays on for hours. Even overnight. Haha! I have it in several colors. This red color is great for fall.

 

 

 

4. FlyWheel

seattle I love this workout! We climb hills, we do sprints, there is awesome music, lots of sweat and NEVER a dull moment. They also have cute shirts with cool spin sayings like “torque down for what”.
I’m obsessed. 
It is my cross training of choice at the moment. When I am not running, I am probably spinning. 
Check out their website and see if there is one in your area. I’m pretty sure you can take your first class for free.d5c4ab390dd9ebc5bc9ccd11770b1d17

5. BREAKFAST!

I can’t get enough of breakfast these days. Just look at the amount of times I have shared breakfast recipes lately. I love some protein pancakes, protein french toast and of course my latest obsession, overnight oats. All these recipes are gluten free.

6. Ultima Replenisher ElectrolytesScreen Shot 2015-09-27 at 1.27.52 AM

Screen Shot 2015-10-16 at 3.03.56 AMWith all the running and major sweating (flywheel) I have been doing lately, my electrolytes are more important than EVER.
I cannot get enough of the Raspberry Ultima. I love it because it is just electrolytes, no sugar, no artificial ingredients, just good hydration. 

 

7. Lorna Jane graphic tanks

Leave it to Lorna to come up with the cutest and most creative sayings and then put it on a tank. Check out some of my favs…


 

 I love all of these tanks. The “do not disturb” one cracks me up. Definitely a must have at the gyn. I think my most favorite is the “I’m not bossy, I’m the boss” LOL!

 

 

 

8. Celsius – Flo Fusion pre-workout 

0615_flo_fusion_berry_14ct_boxI don’t always use a pre-workout supplement, usually I just drink a cup of coffee before I workout. When I have a more intense workout or I am just not feeling the coffee, lately I have been using Flo Fusion sticks by Celsius. They help me power thru the workout by giving me extra energy and increased endurance. The berry flavor is my fav. This pre-workout doesn’t give me a crash like others have, nor does it make my heart flutter or do weird things like other ones have. It’s pretty much the only one I can tolerate besides coffee. Check them out here


There ya’ have it!! Just some of the things I have been crushing on lately and I can’t get enough of. 

Tell me: What weekend plans do you have?!

XOXO
Stay Sweet!!
