Synergy: Raspberry Chia

When I got to my first period this morning, I realized it had been cancelled. I quickly ran to get my favorite soy latte (because I am running on 4 hours of sleep) and a Synergy drink for later. 

I tried a new flavor: Raspberry Chia!

It looked so beautiful and bright and had a delicious flavor, but having thousands of chia seeds flow down my throat is just a little too weird. Kind of grossed me out... But I am a fan of chia seeds. They have 8 times the omega-3's found in salmon, more antioxidants than blueberries, and more fiber than oatmeal. Wow... that's a powerful little seed. I am just hoping it won't make me grow hair like a chia pet.

After my post on Monday about the green smoothie, I visited Peanut Butter Runner, one of my favorite blogs, and found out about her 7 day green smoothie challenge! Of course I had to join.

So here is my green smoothie I drank from Whole Foods, because I was too busy to make my own yesterday. It had kale, spinach, lemon, and apples in it. It was good, but more watered down than I prefer. (Side note: don't judge this picture. It is only proof that I am completing the challenge. It was taken by my iPhone in my car. Did I mention I was in a hurry?)

Moving on to today's lift...

Legs, Shoulders and Back:
Squat 3x10
Shoulder Split Press 3x10
Hamstring Let-Downs with Partner 3x10
Wide Grip Pull-up 3x8-10

Russian Twists on Decline Bench 3x15/side
Leg Lower, Hip Lift 3x10 (slow)

Happy Hump Day!


  1. Where can you get the Raspberry Synergy Chia? Online?

    1. I'm not sure if you can get it online. I bought mine at a little coffee shop that sells cool drinks, but I have seen them in Whole Foods. I'm sure Trader Joe's would probably have them too! Hope that helps!! :)

  2. I am not so sure about those little chia seeds flowing down my throat either. I think that would definitely gross me out a little. =) It looks really prettty, though!

    Love your new pictures and the twitter you added. I would follow you on twitter but I can't remember how. Jason does all that Dear Lillie stuff for me. =)

  3. i have not tried the chia seed kombucha because i don't know if i can deal with the texture. thanks for your input on it!

    Thanks for the smoothie challenge shout out! Have a great weekend.

    1. Haha yeah, texture was not the best. Hope you have a wonderful weekend as well!
