Now Trending – Best Links Week of 11.16

Photo credit: 1 /2 / 3

I really should go do my PT exercises for my Achilles and… wow, updated November 26th: I’m an utter failure and totally just published this and never really finished writing anything. Whoops.

Travel
Can travel ever be authentic anymore? You see the same photo Instagrammed on everyone’s account of them riding a camel in Dubai, drinking Guinness in Ireland and in a hot spring in Iceland. My key? Go somewhere gritty.

A list of things to do before you leave for Thanksgiving (or vacation or honestly, in general). I actually do all of these (minus leave a meal in the freezer – but gotta start doing that) before I leave.

Lifestyle
Unexpected nail polish combinations, for when you don’t know what color to make your party nail (am I the only person who still consistently rocks the party nail?).

It’s not news stress is bad… but are we overlooking that some stress is normal? And why are millennials so anxious? (Answer: Helicopter parents and as much as I love mine, they were helicopter parents.)

Running and Fitness
A woman with terminal cancer runs her last marathon. How scary to just know a race will be your last – and it could kill you in the process. Such a brave, brave undertaking.

I tweeted this link yesterday, but Angela from Cowgirl Runs has an awesome and informative post on Nutrition and Running. I am obviously eating way too much dairy.

I’m tempted to start training with a heart-rate monitor because I know I don’t push myself hard enough.

Food
Very into what wines sommeliers drink at home.

All about the LA darling artisanal chocolate, Compartes Chocolate. If you’re looking for a stocking stuffer for me, go this route.

I think I’m going to make this Cheesy Kabocha Squash Breakfast Burrito for a lunch or dinner burrito… yum!

My girl Davida recreated one of my favorite meals from my trip to visit her in Toronto with The Ultimate Buddha Bowl.

Oh hello, infographic of what cheese to put on your cheese plate.

Chat with me:
Do you ever train with a heart rate monitor?

I haven’t rocked a party nail in a while. I need to go back to that now that I’m all back into nail polish!

I LOVE your blog. I have a heart rate monitor and love it. I feel like it pushes me throughout the entire workout to keep my heart rate where I want it. You should totally get one!

Thanks, Kristen! I’m going to research a little more – going to wait until I can run again and have it be my present :)

Thanks so much for including me in your AMAZING link up! :)

Also, a big YES to getting a heart rate monitor. It helps me run easy when I need to and hard when I need to.
