Happy Friday and almost the weekend everyone! I hope you have plans to reset and have fun this weekend. I’m sharing this round up early because I’m going out of town for a much needed mini-vacation with my love and turning off all things digital. Here’s the weekly recap of what articles I’ve been reading in the health and nutrition world and noteworthy news from the week so you can stay up to date, too. And if you see or read anything noteworthy from around the web, be sure to share with me and comment on this post so we can chat it up! p.s. there’s a special giveaway so be sure to read all the way to the bottom!

Move that Bod!
Try Hannah Davis’s Anti-rotation Reverse Lunges: Stand facing your bud, real close, and place the palms of your hands together. Reverse lunge with the outside leg furthest from your partner while pressing against your partner’s hand to create resistance. You will notice the immediate challenge in your balance and feel your core fire up! Repeat for all reps on one side before switching sides and palms.
