Well, if we are lucky, by the time you read this Garrett and I will be down in San Luis Obispo. Buster is hanging out with Grandma (Dog massages! Walks multiple times per day! Unlimited brushing! AND TREATS!) so you know he is a happy camper, and we are too — I definitely foresee some relaxing and celebrating our future. Hopefully there is some of that in your weekend too?
How about we roll right into this weekend with some links? So many to share this week:
*I was in Whole Foods last weekend buying a few things and the checker said to me “Oh you must be Paleo.” That’s the first time that’s ever happened and I sort of panicked. I have a lot of anxiety around being vocal about my love for Paleo and not having The Ideal Lean Body. I think this touches on some of the reasons why, but I’m working on it. The last paragraph reminded me of my friend Amy’s recent post about worthiness. Also: about Stacy’s recent post about fat phobia in the Paleo-sphere.
*How Happiness Changes With Age –I sure shouted AMEN! reading through this article. Loved the breakdown of promotion vs. prevention motivation. I’ve never quite heard it broken down like that. Makes sense!
*I’m saving this list for when I’m in a rut.
*In case you were wondering, this is what I consider Food Porn. I really want to do this when we get back from vacation!
*Since I won’t be doing much prep cooking this weekend, I think next week should involve A LOT of crockpot recipes. I want to try this.
* I was once told by someone I cared about that it worried them that I was the type of person who would never be happy. I think they meant it as a criticism. I took it as a compliment. I’m annoying like that.
*Productivity Maximization? I need to read this with a highlighter.
*I love the concept of Energy Density with respect to food. I obviously don’t agree with the nutrition breakdown they use here, but the concept itself was sort of fascinating. I may bust out my scale!
*I recognized a lot of myself in this post about Running Mistakes I’ve Made.
*Did you guys catch Sarah Wilson’s 10 Beefy Reads for Vegans and Meat Lovers. OHMAHGAWD, juicy. And full of links.
*I enjoyed listening to Jonathan Bailor from The Smarter Science of Slim on The Balanced Bites Podcast recently. Some of his Simple Tips were interesting, and you can find a 28 Page PDF of his 7 Days of SANEity Quick Start Guide right here.
*Can we talk about something that is striking me as the best idea EVER, lately? HAMBURGER SALAD:
Nourished Kitchen has one
Pioneer Woman has one
My girl Mel has one
I mean, why didn’t this occur to me sooner?
*Speaking of Paleo pals…did you see that the dynamic duo at Nom Nom Paleo wrote a cookbook? Oh you guys, I would buy anything they sell. No joke. They are good eggs!
