It’s Friday! It’s Friday!
There are so many reasons why I have and always will love Friday. It’s just such an exciting day with the weekend right there beckoning you to quit work or school and come play. It’s filled with promise and even when you have tasks to complete that you hate, you still have that hope of the upcoming weekend. Hurray friday!
Friday is the day that I have decided to use to share some link love and give you a heads up to some good things to read out there. I spend a lot of time reading, so I figure I might as well put that to work and share!
I’ve also decided that I might name this little weekly event. Perhaps “Merry Go Round.” It’s a name I used in high school for a handwritten/drawn “newsletter” I gave my friends and I’ve always enjoyed it. Think it fits?
Friday Links of the Week
Something I found yesterday via Roni’s blog, is a new study claiming that the human brain naturally distorts body image. “Individuals have a conscious visual image of the body … but they also make subconscious misrepresentations of body image.”
Workout Mommy wrote about the thing I hate most about my body – how my knees crackle and make noise when I do things. She calls it “crepitus” and gave me a good reminder it’s not a reason not to do exercises! (It’s just annoying.)
As you know, I’m cutting most of the sugar out of my diet. But I’m not turning to sugar free foods (besides jam), and it turns out that’s a pretty good choice because foods that cut sugar aren’t necessarily a sweet choice (and may give you diarrhea). Win for real food!
Remember In Defense of Food? Well, here is a short defense of (some) processed foods.
It’s almost summer and a lot of us are working out outside running, walking, biking, etc. But remember your sunscreen! Skin cancer is no joke! You might be healthy and fit (or on your way) but you are still at risk for skin cancer. Wear SPF 30 when you are out in the sun my friends!
This week on my other blog I documented everything that I own, which isn’t much. I’m a bit of a minimalist now and I can count all the personal items I own easily. Everything else is borrowed or rented (and replaceable). It was a fun project you might want to check out if you’d like to see pictures of everything I own. ;)
And that’s it for me.
Did you read anything amazing or inspiring this week?
