Health/Fitness Links to Get You Through the Day

I apologize that this post wasn’t up this morning…it’s been a hectic week! But, here are your weekly, informational links, because I know there are times you need a break from work and just want to browse the internet ;)

  • Lean Legs Interval Workout: This workout is brought to you by fitness blogger Jess of Blonde Ponytail. This is a great lower body, interval workout that will no doubt get you sweating. I fully plan on trying this out on one of my circuit training days. This is actually her second “lean legs workout,” here is part 1.
  • 3 Moves for Flat Abs by Halloween: While I can’t promise that you will have flat abs by Halloween (since many other factors besides doing ab exercises go into that), I can tell you that these are great core exercises. I do all of these myself when I do my core workouts. I LOVE plank. One of the best exercises out there. If you’re not already regularly doing plank, do it.
  • Rethink Your Drink: Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte: mmmm pumpkin spice lattes. Always a fall favorite. But there are ways to enjoy pumpkin spice without all that sugar! This link gives you some other options. I personally get a Cafe Americano, and ask for 1 pump of the pumpkin spice syrup, then top it off with a sprinkle of nutmeg. Half the calories, half the sugar.
  • Creamy Kale and Apple Soup: I just found this blog, Cara’s Cravings, and plan on exploring it fully. I love finding new, healthy recipes I can make at home, because I am not creative at all in the kitchen. This kale and apple soup looks like the perfect fall soup.

If you try any of these, whether it’s the workouts, a new Starbucks drink, or kale soup, let me know! I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Ps- What is your favorite drink to get at Starbucks? Mine is definitely a Cafe Americano (caffeine addict, anyone?)
