Fun Things To Read On A Friday


The weekend looks so dang good to me right now.

How are you guys? I am freaking exhausted! This week has gone by in an absolute whirlwind of work, projects, chores and daily grind and I am so happy that (among other things) I picked up convenience stuff at Trader Joe’s this week because I literally would NOT have made it through the Whole 30 without it. (Speaking of, Caitlin wrote a great post about convenience staples that is worth reading.) I had not an ounce of brain power to think about food this week. In fact I can hardly remember the things I ate because I was constantly eating with the intention of just “putting something in my system” so I could move on to something else that needed to get done. These aren’t my favorite kind of weeks, but eh — I survived! And now the reward is the weekend! And a loooooong weekend at that. Hooray!

*Tomorrow we are headed to the bay area to cheer on some athletes from our CrossFit box who are competing at the Nor Cal Masters competition. It’s a competition specifically designed for athletes who are 40+ and I love it! I wrote about it last year but I just find it super inspiring. I love the message in this video about it. Such a cool event!

*While we’re talking about CrossFit (and videos!) I enjoyed this post from Carrots’n’Cake with kipping pull up tips. I am really determined to do pull ups this year! It is going to take an EXTREME amount of effort on my part, but that will make the victory that much sweeter, right?

*Thanks again for all your support about The Relay! I’m so glad to hear that many of you have participated and survived. Score! We picked legs last night (I’m running Leg 9 thankfully and Garrett is running Leg 7) and I’m looking forward to figuring out my training strategy. I read this post about Why Running Makes Us Happy: The Importance of Flow recently and found myself nodding along throughout. Especially during this part:

“I’m on the cusp of starting a new hobby and I’m unbelievably excited. Why? I know I’m going to royally suck and the motivation to improve to get to that flow state strikes a deep inner drive.”

*Want to see the best thing I read all week? It was this. Hands down.

*I’m feeling a little tense lately because my “life plate” is approaching max capacity. This weekend I plan to practice this.

*Lastly, can we talk food? OF COURSE WE CAN. You know I am a newly converted fan of homemade vinaigrettes. Check out these awesome combos over on The Cuisinerd. Delicious AND pretty to look at. Love that.


So what’s on your plate this weekend — literally or figuratively? I’m not sure I will be able to do a photo round up this weekend of Whole 30 food, but I will do my best. I will be back for sure on Sunday though with a weekly meal plan. Next week is the last full week of Whole 30! (I am thinking about continuing through February. CRAZY TOWN! But it sounds kind of nice. ha!) Hope you have a great weekend friends!

Some personal realizations occur when sitting under a red-tinted hood of heat and wearing enough foils to make contact with an alien mothership. Sure, you can get six weeks of color before growing roots plant you back in that salon chair; but you can also end up with brassy zebra stripes that bring back memories of ultra-glossy Lip Smackers and frosted cream eye shadow.
