Weekly Roundup time! Here’s some of the stuff I saw this week…

1. Why workouts eventually stop working when it comes to losing weight


2. RECIPE FOR A HAPPY HANDSTAND PUSH-UP – From CrossFit Invictus


3. Why Your Granola Is Really a Dessert

A cup of Nature Valley Oats ’n Honey Protein Granola has 24 grams of sugar and actually contains more sugar than protein by weight. Nature Valley also has a Peanut Butter ’n Dark Chocolate Protein Granola that has 30 grams of sugar per cup. Bear Naked Honey Almond Granola has 20 grams of sugar per cup.

By comparison, a slice of chocolate cake with frosting has 26 grams of sugar. A cup of ice cream has 28 grams of sugar. A regular Krispy Kreme glazed doughnut has 10 grams of sugar, according to the Krispy Kreme website.


4. Last chance of the summer to try SUP yoga with Jen is this Saturday!
