I found some really great links this week, and I almost couldn’t wait to share them with you. I think I’ve found that Amanda’s Sunday link love link-up is how to find some good Sunday night reading to chew on for the rest of the week.
But, I also have a really special time of a day off of social media and internet to just spend time with the Lord, rest, and truly enjoy the AWESOMENESS of being able to worship with God’s people in the beauty of holiness. I always love getting off of social media. It refreshes your perspective and reminds you of why why you want to love and serve others throughout the week, even with bloggin!
So, I’m getting to the link love party a little late, but better late than never, right?
Time for some Sunday Link love! 🙂
‘What Happened When I Reached My Goal Weight.‘ – I found Maddy’s site a couple months ago, and I LOVE what she has to say about recovery and a balanced look at body image + being healthy. She’s just so real, and I relate to so much of her story.
‘You are Fearfully and Wonderfully Made.’ – This was beautiful. Reminding myself of this fact is SO essential when I’m struggling with a bad day with body image. I have to remind myself of my Heavenly Father who created me in His image, who made me for His purpose, and loves me without condition. <3 Please go read this! I know you will be encouraged.
‘Giving Up Exercise, Gaining Your Period.’ – Man, Julia knows how to hit me where it hurts in a GOOD way. It is still tough for me to give up exercise on days that I REALLY want to do it for the sake of ‘burning calories.’ Julia has by far, one of the most balanced perspectives on this, and I’m so grateful that God gave her the ability and self-control to say no to exercise while regaining her health!
Health/Nutrition Things to Think About
The Sugar Debate – This is something that I’ve wondered about SO MUCH. Is sugar as bad of a monster as people make it out to be? I think the idea of ‘everything in moderation’ really comes into play in this article. And that’s why I loved it.
‘Dealing with Food Sensitivities and Allergies in Recovery’ – I just discovered Kaila, and her bio reads that she struggled with ’13 years of anorexia, orthorexia, EDNOS (eating disorder not otherwise specified), and exercise addiction.I have been a vegan, a fitness/figure competitor wannabe, a strict Paleo devotee, and an emotional eater. I believe in Health at Every Size—because health is not one-size-fits -all.’ This article was GOOD because she deals with this matter in an extremely sensitive and kind way. 🙂
Let’s Talk About My Black Pants – Meredith has a way of getting inside my head with addressing many of the things I’ve struggled with during recovery. Meredith’s fresh look at recovery when it comes to clothes is STUPENDOUS.
Recipes I made this Week:
1. Combine all the greatest flavors in one loaf of bread. = This Peanut Butter Apple Banana Bread = SO much yumminess. 🙂
2. No Bake Apple Pie Protein Bars – Arman’s recipes not only are full of nutrition, but they’re so easy, you have to go and make these this week, pronto.
3. ‘Home Made Graham Crackers’ – If you want something that you call a graham cracker, but it tastes like delicious shortbread, MAKE THESE! 😉 I made them, originally, for Amanda’s Pumpkin Cheesecake bite recipe, but we ate them too fast. I think I’ll make more this week.
What did you do today?
Any favorite articles that you could share with me?
Thank you Erin for the link-up!
