Picture Sharing Made Easy: The Seahorse App

Hello Darlings!

Being Twenty-Six I feel like every time I scroll down my Facebook feed I spot another engagement, and another wedding hashtag so you can follow the images that are posted on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. I know from experience that trying to save all of the pictures so that they are in a central location and available for everyone to use is a huge hassle. Insert Seahorse.

Barre 3: Beautiful and Brutal (In the Best Way Possible!)

Hello Darlings!

I had always been curious about taking Barre classes. They sounded like fun, but for me if I am going to go workout, I want to get my butt kicked, and I (very wrongly) assumed that Barre classes were more pretty than functional. Oh, how wrong I was.

Now I know I shouldn’t have assumed that classes at Barre 3 wouldn’t be difficult because, quite frankly, many think the same thing about yoga, and I happen to pass the Barre 3 Denver location as I drive to teach each week. But alas, after Barre 3 reached out and offered to set me up with a class pack and a subscription to their online classes I thought, why not?

Yoga Poses for Lower Back Pain

Hello Darlings!

In each of the yoga classes I teach I really try to focus on bringing balance to both the front and back sides of our bodies. So often we tend to ignore what we can’t see, and thus even in a yoga class we breathe only to fill our chests and bellies, not the back sides of our ribs. Or when we engage our abs we tighten up that ‘six pack’ and ignore the corset of muscles that circles the backside of our torsos as well. We hold children, sit at a desk typing, cook, and so many other tings using the muscles in the front side of our body and that leads to a bit of back pain if we don’t regularly work and stretch our backs as well.

Meatless Monday: Vegan Pumpkin Pie Chia Seed Pudding

Hello Darlings!

So, I’ve said a few times that I am very much so a summer baby, sunshine and hot weather all day everyday, thank you! But I do enjoy autumn as well, even if it is paving the way for winter (brrrr..). One of my favorite things to embrace during autumn is the array of delicious belly-warming flavors, especially pumpkin and the spices that go along with it!

My Pumpkin Pie Chia Seed Pudding is a decadent breakfast (or dessert!) that is full of nutritious ingredients (read: good for you) and incredibly easy to make, whether you’re concocting two jars or ten! I love being able to pop open the fridge, have breakfast ready to go, and getting to savor the spicy flavors of fall each morning!

Fiber Choice Get Picky Challenge: My Thoughts (& Join Me!)

Hello Darlings!

For the past 30 days I have been taking part in the Fiber Choice Get Picky Challenge, a fun way to see if adding fiber (or changing the way you consume it) is right for you and your body.  If you’ve been reading Chickadee Says for a while you might know that I am very particular when it comes to what I put in my body so when I decided to add a fiber supplement I knew it had to be something special.
