Good morning! It’s Saturday, and I’m not going to do as heavy of a post today… I just want to share some of my favorite blog links that I read this week, and I hope you enjoy reading them too.
Eating Disorder Recovery/Body Image Links
Lord Still Loves Me – ‘My Minnie Maud Experience Part 2’ – Even though I had never heard of Minnie Maud before Julia introduced it to me through her blog last year, I have read many of the articles and found them extremely encouraging and eye-opening for my own journey. 🙂 I absolutely love just how honest Julia is in sharing the ups and downs of the experience, and I think her story will be a blessing for others.
Bagels to Broccoli – ‘My Story.’ – Wow, I love Jen. I hope we can meet in person some day. Her blogging style is personable and honest. In this post, she really opened up about her own journey with body image and eating and her relationship with Jesus through it all. It is beautiful to see where she’s come from and the way in which God is using her to love others with her journey.
Huffington Post/Maddie Moon – Top 5 Ways to Get a Sick Pack – Boy, Maddie does not pull any soft punches in this article. She drove straight to the logic behind getting a ‘six pack’, and I thought it was both interesting and incredibly honest. 🙂
Life with Niki – ‘Why Guilty Pleasures aren’t actually Guilty.’ – Wow. I loved this. I always thought that was kind of a contradiction to call something a ‘guilty pleasure’ and to eat it or do it anyways. 🙂 Guilty pleasures aren’t actually guilty. They’re just ‘special’ occasions, or something you don’t do all the time.
Racing/Running Link Faves
Healthy Tipping Point – ‘Twas the Friday Before Race Day.’ – Caitlin definitely hits the emotions I get the day before a race. I’m always nervous and excited, scared and full of anticipation. The day before a race is almost crazier than the day of the race.
Food I want to Make
Healthy Helper Blog – ‘Superfood Peanut Butter Bites.’ – Kaila got me at the words ‘peanut butter’ and ‘bites.’ Our family is a super snacky family, and I love finding new recipes to try!
Food I Made that I loved
Running with Spoons – ‘Chunky Monkey Greek Yogurt Pancakes.’ – These were so good. Amanda’s recipes are the bomb everyone! Go over there directly and try one.
