Oh hey there — for those of you who are missing me dearly at the Healthy Living Summit, know that I’m not there because I registered early for the CanfitPro conference and trade show and Tough Mudder this weekend way back when…bad planning!
I’ve been slacking on the Friday posts but if you have me on facebook you know I’ve still been linking up to all kinds of interesting, cheesy, funny, etc. things!
Here goes — I love these posts!
5 quotes to inspire you
4 books I have on the go
I actually think there’s more than these going — but that’s okay. I like to have my mind in a bunch of really great places at once — it keeps things itneresting!
1. The Book of Awesome – Great for whenever I need a little pick me up!
2. Six Pillars of Self Esteem - I’m refusing to rush through this — I’m taking notes, highlighting, and having a lot of “aha” moments along the way!
3. Real Food: What to eat and why – Memoir like and filled with common sense, this book is comforting.
4. Good Calories, Bad Calories – This one is on my “get reading eventually” list since it’s the next LBD book club book. I’m looking forward to it because Taubes’ newer book (Why We Get Fat) was eye-opening!
3 links worth checking out
1. Paleo For Women’s “Self Love and Weight Loss: Enemies of Bed-fellows?” post, which oh so eloquently summed up the issue of trying to change your body without deeming it wrong:
“Self-love is not antagonistic to weight loss. Nor is self-love antagonistic to those of us who need to gain weight. Instead, self-love is about working in partnership with our bodies to achieve a holistically healthy and beautiful existence, for all of us. Self-love is about providing the body with the tools it needs to get healthy and vibrant and radiant, while never hating it for looking or behaving a certain way.”
3. “Is Paleo Even Paleo? And Does It Even Matter?” on Chris Kessler’s blog. His thoughts are that it doesn’t really matter what people ate way back when but it does matter that we know what we need to eat now to feel and perform our best. And he touches on the kind of stigma around the name, which I found interesting. Amen to eating what’s healthiest for us without stressing over the label.
