I’ve rounded up all the best links from this week so you don’t have to. If you haven’t noticed yet, my round-ups are a little different than most “healthy living bloggers”… probably because I more so like to think of myself as a “healthy lifestyle” blogger instead. Is that a thing? Anyway, now it is.
I often say that I am a 17 year old in the body of a 25 year old. I also say that I am an 80 year old in the body of a 25 year old, so I really need to make up my mind. I feel 17 because I don’t do things like pay my own car insurance and refuse to get medical benefits at work (riding the Joe Pisone Benefits Train all the way to station 26, baby). Apparently this makes me “not a real adult” according to Refinery29.
I have my moments of “not wanting to drink empty calories” but then I read an article that says people who drink moderately are skinnier than those who don’t, so boo-yah. My friend Angela had a great piece about this on her blog, Balancing Alcohol Consumption with Healthy Living.
I think I do most of the 13 Things Successful Millennials Do in Their Spare Time. Whether or not I’m successful is still TBD.
It’s real easy to get caught up in negative thoughts, especially running. I had a moment in yoga on Tuesday where I just went into child’s pose – which I never do – because I was just over everything. In the future, I need to keep in mind these Five Tips to Overcome Negative Thoughts from Love, Life, Surf.
I often think of Elite Runners when I’m running – WWSGD (What Would Samantha Gash Do?). Runners’ World had a great piece on “How to Think Like an Elite Runner“.
Zucchini Bread Ice Cream. Do I need to say anything else?
I will never be able to pull this off in the kitchen, as skilled as I or random other people in my life would like to think. Half Baked Harvest, will you come to Pittsburgh and make me your Caramelized Peach + Cherry, Prosciutto and Gorgonzola Salad w/Buckwheat Crêpes?
Lindsay from Cotter Crunch always has the most creative, healthy and nutrient-dense recipes! I am so excited to try baking her Grain Free and Dairy Free Mixed Nut Muffins this weekend!
Also, have you entered my giveaway for an Eight Pack of Kind Bars yet? It’s open until 8.6 at midnight!
Chat with me:
Are you a “real adult”? Do you do “successful millennial” things? Do you think alcohol can be part of a healthy lifestyle (the answer I am looking for here is yes).
