This week, I had a life-changing experience I know you or someone you love will relate to…
I’m talking specifically about this week’s “Get Smart” Snapshot, but I think you’ll find all of these Snapchat highlights helpful!
Get Smart Chat: How Your Gut Health Affects Your Brain
I HAVE to show you my before and after photos…of my brain! This is why I’m so crazy passionate about what I’m doing right now with diet and healing your gut. It’s about so much more than weight loss. You’ve got to see my Facebook live on how I healed my brain (a brain that was headed for Alzheimer’s…AND my ADD) by healing my gut, and why your gut health is so much more important than you probably ever realized.
Food Chat: How to Wash Your Produce
I was amazed by the number of requests I got to share how I wash and prep my produce again…so here you go! We talk about should you buy organic and a must-follow process to ensure your food is safe to consume whether you choose to buy organic or not. Here’s my favorite fruit and veggie wash. www.EatCleaner.com/Chalene USE CODE >> CHALENE << FOR 15% OFF.
Podcast Chat: Supplements & Scams – How to Determine if Your Supplements Are Legit
This week’s podcast was a jaw-dropper! I interviewed the founder of a company called Lab Door. They do independent testing on all of the popular supplements, protein bars, shakes, etc. out there – what’s in them, the good, the bad, and what you need to know. So many products are falsely labeled! This is a must listen to determine if your supplements are legit and if you even need them in the first place.
I love off-the-shoulder shirts, and you may have noticed I wear them often. I’m always asked how I keep the shoulders from riding up. Here’s one of my favorite styling hacks you’ll definitely want to use this summer! All you need is a hair band and two safety pins! Check out this video.
Fitness Chat: How to Make Your Workouts Shorter & More Effective
What workout gives you the most bang for your buck when you’re short on time? Tabata! It’s a term that describes a type of workout that alternates 20 seconds of intense exercise with 10 seconds of rest for a total of 4 minutes. (I typically do 2-3 sets of 4 minutes.) The key term here being “intense.” If your goal is to get better results in a shorter amount of time, focus on intensity. One a scale of 1 to 10 (with 1 being sitting on the couch and 10 running away from a lion), try to hit a 10 for those 20 second intervals for greater success. I think so many people hold back on intensity because they’re afraid to fail. It’s ok to go so hard you can’t finish! I’m giving you permission to fail. Give it a try, and you’ll see better results with shorter workouts.
I’ve been geeking out over this stuff, and I’d love to know if you’re enjoying these weekly highlights, too.
Leave me a comment at the bottom with your thoughts.
I’m excited to hear from you!
