This post is coming to you a little late. I had every intention to write this last night and just had zero energy. Actually that’s been every night this week. I have so. much. energy. in the mornings and then by the time I get home at night… nothing. Anyone else?
Last week I was having too much fun/recovering from New Year’s Eve to post the best links of the week.
Kay is my girl normally but she serious nailed on the head talking about trying new things despite the fear of failure.
Loving your job isn’t always a given. How can you merge what you love and what you do as a career? Look for the grey area, whether it be creating a new job for yourself within an existing company, taking on new responsibilities or working for yourself (I pick the latter, please).
If I have free time and I’m not doing something productive, I’m racked with guilt. There’s something to say about the lost art of free time.
In case you missed the title of this blog (Almost Getting it Together), sometimes being in your 20s sucks. Celebrities have quotes about being in their 20s (spoiler: most are “you don’t know who you are, just get through them, your 30s are awesome.”)
Do you knit or know anyone who does knit? You can make mittens for koalas with burned hands. I want to learn how to knit just so I can help those cuties out. They break my heart.
Running and Fitness
Did you make a running-based New Year’s Resolution/Goal? Whether it’s qualify for Boston or run for 30 minutes, Runner’s World has tips to help you reach your running goal this year.
Want to get faster this year? Running more miles won’t help (trust me, I know). You’ll have to do some speed workouts from running hills, track workouts and strides.
I always wonder what fitness instructors eat, especially those ones with rockin’ bods. Here’s what fitness instructors eat for lunch. (AKA I need to lighten up my lunch… juice + almonds has been working well this week.)
I promise, eating healthy isn’t awful. It’s actually fairly simple and delicious. Alexis from The Hummusapien has 5 [Awesome] Tips for Clean Eating.
Marisa from Uproot From Oregon is doing an awesome #BacktoBasicsJanuary challenge. Basically, you want to cook at home, eat real food, etc. etc. All the things you should already be doing. I’m obsessed with her meal prep and easy meal ideas and I know I’ll be throwing some of these together this weekend.
I know it’s after New Year’s so black eyed peas won’t be trendy for another 350-some days, but I definitely want to make Giselle’s Black-Eyed Peas Chocolate Chip Blondies.
Loving Davida’s Asian Chopped Kale Salad with Miso Sesame Dressing. Timely, no?
Shit Juicers Say. It’s all true.
Chat with me:
What do you usually eat for lunch? Did you make any running New Year’s Resolutions? How do you spend your “free time”?
