Brooklyn Fit Chick News & Notes



  • Fit Bottomed Eats “Power Ball for Runners” Recipe: I am lucky enough to be friendly with the amazing dietician Frances Largeman-Roth who sits in the front of my spin class every Sunday morning. (Love my first-row achievers!) Frances contributes this yummy Pre-Workout Powerballs recipe to another Blog I write for—Fit Bottomed Eats. What’s really great about her recipe (if you are a mom) is that they “dairy and nut-free—they pass the school test!”
  • Men’s Journal Talks About the Dangers of Sitting: Almost ten years ago I quit corporate life to work for myself which I assumed would make me healthier but without the travel of the commute every day—in reality, I was sitting even more hours in a row than at a formal office. At first I switched to a standing desk which for sure is helpful but doesn’t challenge my core to be stronger and it made my posture even worse as I just leaned into my laptop. My friend and fitness guru Elizabeth Pongo recommended I try a wobble board to challenge my sense of balance whenever I work at my desk. Wow—what a difference it makes!

 (Elizabeth is one of the experts quoted in this excellent feature in Men’s Journal article all about the health risks of sitting and what you can do to counterbalance them. Good stuff!)

That’s all I have for today—keep checking back for news, reviews and playlists aplenty! Be sure to check back next week for my next Vlog post and giveaway!

  1. I think my first comment got lost… oops. Those PowerBalls are really different, with the puffed millet and puffed kamut, but I bet they are very good!

  2. I get bored if I sit too long. I homeschool my 1st grader and preschooler, and if we have been sitting too long we do laps around the house (inside if it’s too cold) because NONE of us can focus if we site too long haha.

  3. That whole thing about sitting being dangerous scares me. I’ve read those articles about how even a one hour workout each day really doesn’t counteract the effects. I work part time so I do probably move around more than others but I don’t think it’s enough. I know I definitely don’t get in those 10K steps per day.

  4. One of the many reasons why I love teaching is because it isn’t a desk job. I spend most of my day on my feet, working with my students. I get too bored sitting in front of my computer for long periods of time, especially not being able to get up and move about!
