I guess since I don’t have classes on Friday, every weekend is a long weekend for me. But this one is extra long, and the forecast looks extra awesome.
Anyways, here is your weekly dose of random awesome that’s been catching my eye:
5 cheesy pictures to love
4 things I’m gonna try to check off my summer bucket list this weekend
1. Biking to Sarnia from London – Yeah, I’m a little nervous. But those East winds are rare and so is this much spare time!
2. Slack line – hoping!
3. Rollerskate – okay, rollerblade! Same thing. I’m scared. I like my face…
4. Get drunk in the afternoon – tough.
3 articles you should check out
1. Jenni Schaefer’s article about loving her body, which I included in my shot out to my legs but that is so good that I do not mind posting it twice. She talks about the decision to “own her looks”–so huge!
2. Charlotte’s “You Know You’re a Fitness Nerd If…” list. I knew I was going to laugh when I got to #2: ”You’ve ever spent time running around a playground… without chasing a toddler.” — something I did earlier this week. It only got better from there…
3. Cynthia Sass’s post on SHAPE about the weight loss/body image connection. I know that the ultimate goal isn’t losing weight–though magazines seem to forget that we don’t all want to be smaller–but her message is good, nonetheless. And for those of you who think you do want to lose some pounds, it is a good thing to hear that the important thing to work on is the relationship with yourself before you can be successful. I know a lot of my yo yo dieting and ups and downs would have been helped if I’d come to love my body before I started trying to “fix” it. Truth: there’s not a thing to fix. When I fully accept that, my weight takes care of itself because I take care of myself! Sass’s tips include analyzing your thoughts, focusing on how you feel, acknowledging what you’re grateful for, and finding exercise that you love. Good advice, no?
