Hellooooo!! HAPPY Midweek :D
How are you?! How's your week going so far?! I hope it's going FITastic and you're CRUSHING your goal(s) this week!! My week started out rough...lol! I can laugh now :D Hopefully you got my Facebook notice that I wasn't posting 2 days ago (on Monday). My week started with a trip to the ER. Crazy fun, right?! Over the weekend, I was having pain in my inner arm, the front of my shoulder, and in my chest area. GOOD news tho...NO heart problems!!! The doctor said I have Pectoralis Minor Muscle Dysfunction. I told him that was a mouthful :D To make a long story short...we use the pectoralis minor muscle when we drop or pull our shoulder down. Also, when we take a deep breath, the pectoralis minor muscle helps raise the ribs to expand the chest area. In my case, the nerves and blood vessels which run between the muscle and the rib cage is compressed due to excessive muscular tension. On the good side, I'm super glad this isn't permanent and the crazy condition will go away! I got this!!
Put the following POWER FOODS on your plate and eat your way to a smaller size! Since I've had to slow down a little, this sounds GOOD to me!! BRING IT ON :D
The whole truth about this whole "grain"? It's a seed, but still full of belly flattening fiber, protein, and other micronutrients that may fight obesity.
This herb adds a bunch of flavor for just 22 calories a cup baby, and it contains quercetin, an antioxidant that may throw a wrench in fat-cell formation.
- Greek Yogurt
A protein powerhouse, it's loaded with good-for-your-gut probiotics, and a Harvard study ranked it as the top food associated with a low BMI.
Get stoked for this stalk! It's got metabolism-revving catechins, and half your daily dose of potassium, to help ixnay bloat from sodium-rich meals.
People who got 20% of their calories from these monounsaturated fat-filled dynamos lost nearly an inch from their waists in 6 months!
I'm off to start dinner for my fam and we're having Greek Yogurt with fresh strawberries for dessert :D
Have a HEALTHY couple of days!
No more trips to the ER...lol...so I'll be back here on Fridayyyyy!!
