Now Trending – Best Links Week of 10.5

This post is once again going up a little late. I don’t know where this week went (okay, I kind of do). I need to be totally better about forcing myself to be productive when I feel like it the least. I didn’t really have a ton of time to read blogs this week, but here are the best links I found.

Travel
People often ask me where to go when they visit SF. I should be an adult/real blogger and make a real list (it’s on my to-do list, I swear) but in the meantime, Well + Good is now in SF and has a San Francisco Healthy Lifestyle Guide.

Dying to go to Goa, no puns intended. Major gypset vibes.

A great post on whether or not traveling heals a broken heart. Personally – I think it helps.

Lifestyle
I really don’t talk about growing up in West Virginia a whole lot, but this photo journal of coal country really brings back a lot of memories.

Is the party dead? I think my lack of space and my need to serve ornate food and drink is why I only have parties when I’m home.

Running and Fitness
I should really start making cross-training more of a priority… 6 cross-training moves every runner should do.

Just because I run ~40 miles a week doesn’t mean I can eat whatever I want. I have some work to do to get leaner – and faster. I am really inspired by this post by this marathoner who talks about racing 25 pounds lighter

Food
Guess what… nutritionists wouldn’t eat Quest Bars. I’m personally not surprised.

A super informative piece on what you should know about baking with coconut flour from The Kitchn.

I haven’t seen a pumpkin spice angel food cake yet so this one from Ambitious Kitchen looks like it will be on my weekend to-do list.

Chat with me:
Give me all your tips for productivity, please! Are you so over pumpkin-spiced everything? Do you eat Quest bars?

I will not touch quest bars. Won’t do it. I’ll eat other fake things, but they terrify me. One think I would totally eat? pumpkin spice angel food cake. COME TO MAMA

Hi Cassie! Happy Friday! As far as hosting when you live in a little place in SF — we had small get-togethers around our coffee table three times in 2.5 years in our small apartment. Now that we live in the ‘burbs, we’ve had three BIG parties in six months and go to other peoples’ homes all the time — no more only meeting at restaurants and bars. It’s quite the change when you have space, and I love to host. :) Wanna come out one day? hahaha
