Hi Friends! We made it to Friday! How was your week? It was CRAZY over here with releasing the e-book, to filming bootcamp videos, to decorating holiday windows. I’m so pumped for Friday and the weekend – it’s my birthday weekend!!!

I do still have some work that needs to get done, but after a coffee meeting today, I’m getting my nails done, going shopping tomorrow, taking the full day off on Sunday (our 6 month wedding anniversary), and then half day for birthday on Monday!

Today, I’m back with a new edition of my favorite things. Feeling like Oprah a bit, with not 1, but 2 giveaways!! And I’m sharing a review of Big Slice Apples! Hope you guys enjoy!

The Hubs and I had been debating fitness trackers for a few weeks. Since working from home and not having access to a walking desk anymore, I knew I’d not been getting in enough steps each day and I wanted something to keep me accountable. After doing a bit of research, we settled on the FitBit Charge HR and picked ours up on Black Friday. I’ve been LOVING it. And getting in more than 10,000 steps every day. Holla! Definitely recommend this band!


Winter is sadly upon us (I hate cold weather) and that means leaving for early morning training sessions, wearing summer leggings is not fun. I’d been looking for weeks for a nicer pant that I could wear while training clients, but would still keep me warm. I found these babies from Athleta over Black Friday and I love them. I didn’t get the lined pair in the store, so I’ll probably wear a pair of leggings underneath. But, totally purchasing a pair of lined online!


I’ve been admiring this BIFF IT Gear for some time now. Their tanks are seriously the best. I ended up winning a giveaway for the Thighs As Big As My Dreams tank, and because I loved it so much, I ordered the Femininely Bada** Tank too. LOVE them both!

Ultimate Food Prep Guide Giveaway


Imagine sophisticated fruit combinations and whole ingredients that you can actually taste and chew. Awesome, right? Look no further than Big Slice. I was recently given the opportunity to try out Big Slice products and they are quite tasty! Big Slice kettle cooks slices of GMO-free, USA-grown apples, mixes in pure whole fruits and superfoods, resulting in a delicious, healthy snack that provides protein, fiber and energy.

big_sliceThese tasty creations come in glamorous, on-the-go pouches in 17 flavors that are naturally gluten-free, fat-free and only 100 calories per pouch! They have a shelf-stable life of 2 years, contain no high fructose corn syrup and are BPA free. Basically, you are getting delicious apples with amazing ingredient – nothing fake. And you can taste that fact.

big_sliceI received a bit container of the natural apples in my care package and the container is over half gone. I add them to the top of waffles, a rice cake, or just eat out of the container. Because I have some leftover pie dough from Thanksgiving, I’m planning on taking a packet or two and making an apple tart/pie this weekend. These apples are just so tasty and with all the flavor combinations, I think you will love them too.

big sliceBig Slice can be found at places like Target, Costco, Whole Foods, Publix, Fresh Market, Marsh, Meijer, Vitacost and more! But today, one lucky reader will get an AWESOME care package filled with:

  • 12 pouch sampler
