Thursday Things: Link Love

Why is that 4 day weeks always seem just as long, if not longer than regular 5 day work weeks?  So glad it is Thursday and closer to the weekend! Hope everyone is having or had a wonderful day!

Today, I’m sharing some links that I came across this week that are worth sharing. Enjoy!!

I’ve tried whipped coconut cream before, but didn’t have much success. This link gives you a step-by-step tutorial on whipping coconut cream. I’m definitely going to be giving it a try. This would be a great healthy substitute for frosting.

Lately, I keep hearing that for fat loss it is better to workout before eating. This article reports what I already knew from personal experience; if you fuel your workout with carbohydrates you will have the energy to workout at a higher level, for a longer amount of time, and just plain and simply feel better while working out. I know everyone is different, but for me; I absolutely have to have a little food in my tummy before working out.

I love this office workout, but it may be just a tiny bit difficult to do in a pencil skirt! ;)
