Here are a few of the places where you can eat well, move well, feel well, and look well at the new $600 million mixed-use development…   Grand openings >>

Buffalo Chicken Soup

It’s finally soup weather here in Atlanta! For this week’s recipe, I started out making a buffalo chicken pasta, and it didn’t really turn out to be very good. (Okay, it was awful.) So, I decided because it is getting chilly out, and I already had a whole chicken, spaghetti squash, and some bone broth made, I would try to turn it into a buffalo soup. Honestly, I thought it was probably going to suck too, but much to my surprise, it did not. Not at all. In fact, the whole family loved it and we ate all of it in one night. Days when you win feel so good! I am Super Mom today and I will enjoy it while it’s here because I know it doesn’t always last long.  Happy accidents >>

It’s the spooky season, and there’s nothing scarier than bad form. It can not only reduce the effectiveness of your workout, it can haunt you for weeks or even months afterward in the form of an injury. Boo to that! Here are four of the most terrifyingly common mistakes you might be making when doing popular body-weight exercises — and more importantly, what you need to do to correct them.

Crunch, lunge, plank, and push-up with confidence >>
