So So Sore & Friday Favorites


who knew 2 TB of these bad boys can aid with digestion, control cholesterol levels & give you a dose of heart-healthy Omega 3s?

Good afternoon ladies! Hope you’re all having a fabulous Friday, and are ready to embrace the weekend. I’m doing great, other than the fact that my body is extremely sore from the Core Fusion class I took last night. It’s a good pain however, you know the kind you get when you know you pushed yourself a little farther and really challenged your body. I did have to skip my morning long run this morning however, but I’m OK with it as I knew it was right for my body and didn’t want to force myself or risk getting injured.

Anyway, it’s Friday and you know what that means: time for Friday Favorites! Here’s what’s on my top list this week.

Flaxseed: I bought a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Whole Ground Flaxseed Meal the other day, and have been obsessing over it ever since. I’ve always been a fan of flax and know it works wonders for your diet, but I’ve been slacking on this miracle-worker lately. Did you know that just 2 TB of flaxseed meal has a whopping 2400 mg of Omega 3s? It’s also high in fiber, great for digestion, and works wonders for controlling cholesterol levels, lowering levels of bad cholesterol (LDL). In my mind, this should be a staple in every Healthy Chick’s kitchen.

Core Fusion Open: I know, I know, I just complained of how sore I was from the class earlier, but I did mention it was a good sore. This past month, I’ve been avoiding Core Fusion Open (the traditional Core Fusion class) like the plague for that very reason: it’s a killer workout. Instead, I’ve been playing it safe with yoga, Core Fusion Cardio and running. But Open is where it’s at if you want to see real results aka that dream booty by Thanksgiving. Hence, I shall embrace the class with open arms.

Love: Love yourself. Love your body. Tell that special someone you love him/her. Send a love letter to someone you deeply care about. Learn to love that little freckle on your nose you used to despise. Share your love with a surprise cappuccino for a dear friend. Life is too short not to love.

My Fall Boots: I took them out of the deep, dark hole that was my closet the other day, and an instant warm & fuzzy feeling came over me. Fall is back. That means fall boots, long sweaters, and leggings. I am in heaven.

    Hello Healthychicks,
    This question may be a little off-topic Resveratrol To The Rescue
