May’s squat challenge is heating up – highest reps in 2 minutes is currently at 107 from Stephanie C (sorry Dave, you have to have a witness for it to be legit). Remember you can repeat the challenge as many times as you want before the end of the month!
The NY Times Wellness blog lists a bunch of creative smoothie recipes. I’m a big fan of adding nut butters to smoothies to add flavor and fat (I add a large amount because I need a lot of fat in my diet, some people might not need as much, but a little goes long way). The only recommendation I’ll make regarding smoothies is that people trying to lose weight should be careful not to include too much fruit in them, as it’s easy to get way too much sugar, and thus fat storing insulin spikes, in a fruit smoothie.
