Game Day Race Gear

Football is back baby! This makes me ridiculously happy..and even though Brady still is out for two more games, I’m still 100% the spirit of things. I’m too excited for some football parties and eventually getting around to hosting my fancy tailgate

You can’t cheer on your team without some football gear. There’s way too many cute things out there to show your spirit or love for the game! I want to buy half the shirts on Etsy.

Or what about a football themed races or runs during the season? Maybe you live near a college or NFL stadium where a group meets for a 5k or fun run. If that’s true, then I’m totally jealous! But I’ve started seeing football runs get more popular now until the Superbowl, so I figured I’d round up some cute football themed workout gear. These picks are so perfect for a fancy tailgate, sitting on the couch cheering from home, and running in a race for your team!

I won’t be running a race till after baby, so while I’m having major FOMO about races, I can still shop right? In the meantime, I’ll be buying these cute picks and looking good while I cheer on my Pats, stuffing my face with football snacks…

Game Day Race Gear | Fresh Fit Florida


  1. I couldn’t make a roundup without including something from the Patriots. These tights are super comfortable and really great for working out. Other teams have similar tights, so search NFL for your team!
  2. Also, had to rep my UCF Knights! All schools have cute drink wear, you can find it again in your team’s colors.
  3. Love this cute tank that can be warn for any game! Brian’s almost always watching a college game on Saturdays, so a team neutral tank is perfect to wear.
  4. Another super cute tank for any occasion!
  5. Love Sweaty Bands. They have all kinds of great headbands for literally every occasion. They have some team ones and other football ones too!
  6. One more tank!
  7. So these shoes aren’t for running, but are comfy enough for walking around a stadium or getting through a weight circuit. Plus they’re metallic gold, so how can you not get them???


What team, NFL or college, are you repping this season? Are you participating in any football themed fitness events




Top 10 Things I want to Pinterest Right Now

Do you ever feel like you save things to your Pinterest boards and never get around to making/doing them? That’s how I feel 90% of the time! While I do whip up some recipes or crafts time to time, my Pinterest boards remain undone to do lists. A goal before our baby arrives is to test out some of the things on my Pinterest, so here’s a list of the top 10 things I want to accomplish on Pinterest!

Spoiler alert: A lot have to do with pumpkin and/or fall.


  1. Paleo Coffee Cake via Jay’s Baking Me Crazy



2. Host a Classy Tailgate via Town and Country


This will probably happen at home vs. at a game this season, but a fancy tailgate party for a football game? Yes please. Only thing missing for me is ice cold beer.

3. Make Ahead Freezer Meals


Photo via Smart House School

I’ve got over 30 recipes saved for freezer cooking before baby’s arrival. I’ve got friends and family on deck to help with a day of cooking. This is really exciting to me. Maybe’s it’s some early nesting setting in, but whatever it is, I don’t want to have to think about coming up with a meal for at least 2 months post baby. It’s a big undertaking, but I got this!

4. Pie Crust Chips via Pampered Chef


How pretty are these sweet treats?? And how easy to whip up for a party or get together?

5. Stockpiling Before Baby via All Kinds of Things

Another hefty goal, but if I stock up on household essentials every time I shop, I’ll be in good shape!

6. Honeycrisp Apple Sangria via The Live Fit Girls


File under to do post baby, but I’m making a seasonal cocktail!! I’ve had this recipe saved for over two years. It’s time.

7. Light Pumpkin Dessert Pizza via Simply Taralynn


Another recipe I’ve had pinned 2+ years, it’s time to make this healthy pumpkin dessert pizza!

8. Butternut Squash Soup via Peanutbutter Fingers


9. New Hair


Photo via Pinterest

I’ve been putting off doing something to my hair, mainly because I can’t use hair dye while pregnant, so it’s on my list this fall. I’m dying to change the color, but I’ll have to wait just a little longer!

10. Carve pumpkins!


Photo via Coastal Living

We do it every year and I plan to when it’s closer to Halloween! These coastal inspired pumpkins are so pretty.


Do you pin a ton of great ideas but never get through the list? What’s at the top of the list for you? What’s the best thing you’ve ever made or done from Pinterest?



9 Products to Try if you Like PSL

Pumpkin spice season is officially upon us! 🎃  When the fall months roll around and Starbucks releases the PSL, autumn is officially here and I could not be happier! Stores start stocking all things pumpkin and my need for those spiced treats is at an all time high.

At the start of the new season brings back old favorites and new treats. It’s so fun to try them all! If you are a lover of the infamous PSL and all things pumpkin spice, try these 9 products now!

They seriously make pumpkin spice everything these days and I’m not complaining…

9 Products to Try if you Love PSL | Fresh Fit Florida

  1. Pumpkin Spice Cheerios are here and they are good. Subtlety spiced and not too sweet. Plus they are made with whole grains, so not a bad way to start the day!
  2. Natural Bliss Creamer from Coffee-Mate has replaced my artificially sweetened coffee creamer and I’ve never looked back. They release a limited edition pumpkin flavor for the fall and it’s the perfect addition to my pumpkin spice kcups.
  3. TJ’s Pumpkin Ravioli is a favorite prepackaged dinner idea that I love to have on hand. Throw on some light alfredo sauce with peas and maybe a chicken sausage for added protein and there’s a perfect fall dish in less than 20 minutes.
  4. I LOVE Boom Chicka Pop Holidrizzle Pumpkin Spice popcorn for a light treat that feels indulgent. They make a ton of different seasonal flavors and candy corn is another favorite.
  5.  These spiced almonds are great on their own, but so good mixed into a festive trail mix with candy corn, chocolate chips, and dried apples.
  6. OMG the Wow Baking Company Pumpkin Spice Cookies are to die for! These were added into my cart at Target and I’ll never look back. You must try them! I realize that in the graphic it’s the snickerdoodle kind, as they didn’t have the pumpkin on their website, but the best way to describe these delicious treats are like a pumpkin spiced jacked up snickerdoodle. Yas please.
  7. Wild Friends Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter is an unexpected twist on two good things, so why not put them together?! More PB than pumpkin spice, which is perfect for this food. I like it spread on whole grain waffles with some fresh fruit!
  8. Did you try the Pumpkin Spice Oreos last year?! If you did, then you are happy they are back again for the season. Nothing better than Oreos amiright?
  9. Pumpkin Spice Syrup is such a decadent treat for homemade waffles or french toast guaranteed to make your brunches so much better. I found a bottle last year at Crate and Barrel and must get one for this year. It’s sweeter than you’d think..really a perfect blend of maple syrup and pumpkin spice.

Well I’ll be over here in a pumpkin spice coma now until the day after Thanksgiving! In case that’s not enough pumpkin for you (me neither), than checkout this roundup of recipes I’m just dying to try. Goal is to make it through my Pinterest boards of holiday/seasonal foods before baby’s arrival! Think I can do it??




Cute Gear for National Yoga Month

If you are a yogi, then you must be excited September is finally here– it’s National Yoga Month! National holidays and fun days always motivate me to get festive and participate! I definitely have neglected my yoga practice while pregnant (I seriously miss my Bikram yoga sessions!), but it’s something I would love to get back into in the final month of pregnancy. What better time to realign my goals and get back into practice than this September?

This month, my goal is to hit yoga once a week at my gym and then keep it going after the end of the month. I am looking to get back into practice and getting lots of zen! New gear is always motivating, as well as the month long celebration of yoga, so let’s look at some new gear to keep you going all month long! ✌️

Untitled design-4


  1. I received this cute yoga mat towel in my Fab Fit Fun summer box and love the positive quote at the end every time I look down at it. It helps me not to slip on my mat and keeps me dry. It appears you can purchase the towel without a FFF subscription!
  2. Calia by Carrie Underwood is quickly becoming one of my favorite active ware brands and this infuser water bottle is on my list! Nothing is better than infusing water with fresh fruits, veggies, and herbs, and is a perfect refresher for after a yoga class.
  3. Lululemon tights are a go to for many of my favorite physical activities and these Flow and Go tights are so great for practice.
  4. Onzie has been a fave since I worked in specialty running retail. Their gear is perfect for any sport, including water, and they have such pretty low impact bras for yoga.
  5. Sometimes I like to use a yoga strap if I’m traveling light to class and this prAna one is super cute!
  6. If I’m needing more gear, like a change of clothes, then this Calia bag is a go to. Love the dark color for fall!
  7. How pretty is this reversible Gaiam yoga mat?!

These goodies will keep you looking great during your practice all month long! Will you be celebrating National Yoga Month this month? Participating in any daily yoga challenges or any goals for the month? Share with me!


3 Ingredient Fudge

3 Ingredient Fudge | Fresh Fit Florida

Recently on a post gym, empty stomach grocery shopping trip (huge no no pregnant or not) I purchased and promptly devoured a container of dark chocolate covered salted caramels. One of my all time favorite treats, I just couldn’t resist, and hangry me said it was fine. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Lately I can’t get enough of chocolate. I mean, who can’t? Example: caramels in the car situation. I can always eat chocolate…I don’t discriminate, all chocolate varieties are welcome along with every form: bars, candies, cake, etc.

I’ve also got some serious end of the second trimester energy going on (that I will seriously miss as the third trimester begins) and that brings a baking kick. Maybe because fall is right around the corner (!!!!), but nothing sounds better than a warm cup of coffee and a baked good.

I used to make chocolate fudge all the time. Usually around the holidays. It’s only three ingredients and easy as pie so why shouldn’t I make it more often? While browsing Pinterest’s holiday/events section (can you tell I’m ready for the season!?) delicious looking desserts came up and fudge was among them. And then I remembered my bomb fudge I used to make all the time. It’s been so long so I don’t know where the original recipe is from, but it’s two ingredients and nearly impossible to mess up, so scroll down below for the recipe!

3 Ingredient Fudge | Fresh Fit Florida

Three Ingredient Fudge

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (can use milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or even white chocolate!)

1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

The How To

Pour chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk into a small saucepan. Stir until chocolate is melted and combined. Stir in vanilla extract. That’s it. See? So easy!

3 Ingredient Fudge | Fresh Fit Florida

Pour mixture into a wax paper lined pan and set in the fridge till firm. Cut into pieces once set and eat it up!

The best part about this recipe is 1. how easy it is and 2. how basic it is. You can literally dress it up anyway and add any other flavor combinations possible! That does make it >3 ingredients, but who cares! I used to add different extracts, spices, and mix ins like mini marshmallows, pretzels, candy cane pieces, candy corn, omg possibilities are endless!

3 Ingredient Fudge | Fresh Fit Florida

I’m all excited over here about fall decorating, fall candles, and fall treats. It’s okay to decorate for Halloween now right??? No? I’ll just eat my fudge and light my candles and call it a day. 🎃



7 Active Adventures in Orlando, Florida

Walking around the theme parks is usually a workout in itself. It’s hot, there’s a lot of ground to cover, and by the end of the day, but sometimes it’s nice to do things outside of the crowded parks and discover some hidden gems.

I’m all about getting active during vacation (or stay cations in this case), so here are a few spots around Central Florida that’ll get your heart rate up and your adventurous side going!

7 Active Adventures in Orlando, FL | Fresh Fit Florida

Wild Africa Trek at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

The safari at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a favorite attraction for good reason: all the animals! For an even better look, the Wild Africa Trek takes you into the habitats and provides a closer look to some of the animals. Walk through grasslands, on rope bridges, and settle in for breakfast or lunch on the savannah. This has been on my Disney bucket list for YEARS! For booking and more information, visit here.

Orlando Paddle Board Tours

I love stand up paddle boarding (SUP). It’s such a fun way to get on the water and a great workout to boot. Take a tour with Orlando Paddle Board Tours and checkout some hidden gems of Central Florida. Cruise the through historic canals in Orlando’s beloved Winter Park or get a dose of tropical vibes in 72* water at Crystal River with lots of manatee sightings! For more tours, information, or to book visit their website.

Active Adventures in Orlando, FL | Fresh Fit Florida


Orlando Tree Trek Adventure Park

Just minutes from Walt Disney World, the Orlando Tree Trek Park is filled with zip lining, rope bridges, swings, and more! Get up in the trees for a fun workout of swinging, climbing, and balancing in this active theme park. Follow up this family friendly activity with a breakfast buffet at Disney. You earned it!

Swan Boats at Lake Eola

Downtown Orlando is off the beaten path in terms on the ‘attractions’ area, but well worth a visit! Lake Eola is most famous for it’s big swans nesting all along the mile long pathway around the lake. The path is a pretty, scenic walk that lets you in on a little of what the locals love about the ‘City Beautiful.’ Rent a swan boat for awhile and paddle all along the lake. If you go on a Saturday, make sure you stop by the farmer’s market!

Active Adventures in Orlando, Florida | Fresh Fit Florida

Me at Lake Eola after the BDR 5k!

Discovery Cove 

A visit to this all inclusive ‘water park’ is a dream experience for so many tourists and locals alike. Swim with dolphins, snorkel with tropical fish, and interact with all kinds of animals, Discovery Cove is an awesome day trip experience in Orlando. After all those activities, enjoy laying out in the sun and swimming in the lazy river. It’s an all day thing and on the pricier side, but it’s all inclusive and quite an experience! For booking and additional information, visit their website.

Leu Gardens

Another Downtown Orlando spot, Harry P. Leu Gardens is a 50 acre botanical garden ‘oasis’ filled with gorgeous flowers, plants, and history. Stroll the grounds and take in a tour and visit the historical house still located on the park grounds.

Orange Picking at Showcase of Citrus

There are 50+ varieties of citrus that is grown in Central Florida! And you can pick them all. Unless there’s a variety that’s not in season…but you get the idea. At this farm you can stroll acre after acre of citrus grove and pick your own fruit! Just tell me that after a day of picking oranges you didn’t get a workout! More info here.

Second Trimester

I am almost done with my second trimester! It’s going by so fast! I can’t believe that in three months we’ll have a baby. What?! It’s crazy to me.

The second trimester has been a lot of fun! It’s brought tons of energy and fun surprises like lots of kicking, so let’s recap months 4-6!

Second Trimester | Fresh Fit Florida

Twenty-three weeks and four days!

Weight Gain

Though hard to come to terms with, I have definitely been climbing up the scale. I feel like it’s only in my stomach though (at least that’s what I’m telling myself). So far have only gained a little over 10 pounds. My doctor doesn’t want to see anything over 25, so I think I’m well on track! The more gained, the harder it is to take off!

Second Trimester | Fresh Fit Florida


Thankfully the fatigue from the first trimester is over and the second trimester has brought tons of energy! I feel like I’ve got some early nesting going on and have been in housecleaning and cooking mode. Current projects are cleaning out the fridge/freezer/pantry to make room for stockpiling for when baby’s here and organizing the laundry room. Also putting together the baby room, which is a fun project!

Lower back pain. At the end of a long day on my feet, or especially after a morning workout, my lower back will be sore until I lay down.

No nausea or sickness thank goodness.

I started to feel flutters around 18 weeks, which have progressed to full on kicks! She’s so active all the time, the doctor even said we have a little marathon runner! ❤️ You can see when she kicks, my stomach twitches (like a muscle spasm) and you can feel it from the outside too!

Second Trimester | Fresh Fit Florida


Chocolate chip muffins from Dunkin were solid through months 4 and 5, but the end of 5 and into month 6 brought a serious cinnamon craving! Specifically cinnamon raisin bread or bagels, cinnamon buns, apples and cinnamon, and cinnamon doughnuts.

Apples. Bought a six pound bag at Sam’s Club and lasted only a couple days. My parents are bringing back fresh picked Macintosh apples from New England after their month long trip and I cannot wait!

Flavored coffee. As my third trimester begins, so does pumpkin season! I cannot wait for fall foods and pumpkin flavored errythang. I recently ordered a box of flavored decaf kcups on Amazon and have been looking forward to one every morning. I have a couple pumpkin vanilla ones ready for my September 1st. And I’m sure a decaf PSL won’t be too far behind!

Second Trimester | Fresh Fit Florida


Still no chicken, mushrooms, or BBQ. The smell of BBQ sauce makes me gag. 😂 I can occasionally stomach breaded chicken from like Chik-fil-A, but that’s rare.

Second Trimester | Fresh Fit Florida


I haven’t really been able to run because of the heat, but when I do inside at the gym, it feels like I’m going to pee my pants. There’s too much pressure in my stomach/pelvis, so I’ve been keeping it really light.

Second Trimester | Fresh Fit Florida

I am missing running more than anything besides alcohol and goat cheese , and am already planning my comeback race…Im thinking Wine and Dine 2017! Im missing the runner’s high, the race atmosphere, running with friends, feeling totally exhausted after a long run, even waking up at 4am for marathon training. Especially as race season is upon us. But that’s just another thing I have to look forward to after her arrival!

I joined a new gym somewhere along the way, and have been loving the spin classes they offer. Have been using that as my cardio and I still get that exhausted great feeling after a run, so it’s been making me happy.

Also been doing lots of strength training. My goal is to have some serious guns by the time our girl is born!

Second Trimester | Fresh Fit Florida


I love getting into bed it’s the best part of the day! My Snoogle has been helpful making sure I don’t sleep on my back, but I usually find I’ve rolled that way during the night. Thankfully been sleeping fully through the night and hope that continues as I enter the third trimester!

Related Pregnancy/Baby Purchases

We’ve started working on putting together the nursery. It’s been so much fun! It’s a work in progress and is coming along slowly, but it’s been really fun to work on little bits of it every day! I will be sharing the full room once we’re done!

Leggings! These are my fave from VS Pink. I don’t need to wear business casual attire at school anymore (yay scrubs!), so my focus is on comfy, stretchy clothing for after class and plans out and about.

Second Trimester | Fresh Fit Florida

I mentioned my Snoogle, which was purchased at the end of the 1st or beginning of the second trimester. I ended up getting it the pink color and it vaguely resembles a giant pink intestine or more appropriately fallopian tubes. I’d recommend a different color! 😂

10 Reasons to Workout Right Now

What’s more motivating than new workout gear?! Whenever I’m in a rut or have reached a fitness goal, workout clothes are what get me going. It’s fun wearing your new gear to your fave spin class or a run with friends…when you look good, you feel good! It’s important to treat yourself and a new outfit is the perfect option. I’m loving the deep colors as we wind down the end of summer and embrace the fall!

Back to School Fall Semester

Back to school shopping was always so fun as a kid and now that I’m back in school, I can’t deny that I’m just as excited again. Cute new school supplies and clothes make going to class at the end of summer that much more exciting. Though I don’t have a traditional summer break like most other schools (and kids!), I can’t help but want to buy all the supplies I’m seeing as we all get ready to go back to school.

I’m about to start my core classes at the end of the month, so I stocked up on some new school supplies for my new classes. And if you’re in Florida, whether you live here or are traveling this weekend, it’s our Tax Free Weekend! If your state doesn’t have a tax free weekend, or you’ve never heard of it, supplies, clothes, and some electronics are sales tax free for a weekend every August before going back to school. This deal isn’t usually offered online, so you may not find it in the links below, but stores in Florida will have advertisements for the sales. You can find more info here.

Here are some picks I’ve been eyeing (or have already purchased!) for back to school for the fall semester!

Back to School Fall | Fresh Fit Florida


  1. I’ve found that I need a pouch for all my pens, pencils, and all my supplies so they don’t get lost in a large bag. I love the dark leather details and monogram on this carryall from Mud Pie. So cute for fall…even though fall weather is still a ways away.
  2. I make sure to throw in some sticky notes and page flags in my pouch so I can mark important pages in either my planner, notebook, or textbook. This has been really helpful for rememering things at the top of my to do list or for reference in a long chapter. I love this set from Sugar Paper carried at Target!
  3. Packing snacks to keep my fueled through a long day at class is crucial. I get hangry, spaced out, and unfocused if I go too long without eating, so I’ve found that keeping some snacks or a drink in a little lunchbox has been a game changer. Sometimes I run errands or workout right after class, and knowing I have a Greek yogurt that’s still chilled or an icy coconut water waiting for me pre-workout has been really great. Erin Condren has some of the best planners out there, but also really fun lunch boxes, that I think are new for this year. I love the blush pink and flamingos on this one!
  4. This cognac leather backpack is from Vera Bradley-I used to carry a brightly printed backpack from them back at my first university, but love the look of this smooth leather one. My husband bought my a leather backpack for Christmas last year and I love the look of it. This Vera one is really similar…I absolutely love this color for fall! It’s so pretty!
  5. I’ve quickly used up all the small erasers on the end of my mechanical pencils in longer exams…so a large eraser to have on hand is essential! Also this one is adorable so how can you not?
  6. These notebooks are so fun! One is Lilly Pulitzer (left) and the other is a find from Target. Both are perfect for organizing notes and I think it makes it more fun.
  7. The pineapple trend is obviously here to stay…they’re still popping up everywhere. And how fun is this pencil holder?? So cute for a dorm, or my desk in Florida.
  8. I’ve been craving cold water lately during pregnancy…probably because it feels like 100* every day…so an insulated bottle has been essential lately. I love the S’ip by S’well offered at Target..they are a great price point than the original S’well, come in super cute colors and patterns, and keep cold drinks cold for a long time. I have a couple and like to fill them with ice and a drink and stash them in my little cooler for a water break.



Do you love back to school shopping as much as me? Do you like to take your kids back to school shopping, or is it a major hassle? If you’re in FL, share with my the tax free weekend items you’re scooping up!
