What I'm Reading This Week #24

Happiest of Friday's to you all!  We're halfway through June.  How does that happen?  To quote Truvy:

But enough about the months swirling down the toilet, let's get to...

The 4 Exercises That Unexpectedly Helped Me Zap Away My Stubborn Belly Fat   (She's totally right.  When I do the first three, my core is always super engaged.)

Following These 12 Easy Hacks Will Help You Lose Weight, Not Money   (Someone needs to learn the difference between "hack" and "tip."  These are great tips nonetheless.)

The Surprising Way the Sweltering Summer Heat Affects Your Mood  (Well, I could've told them this for half the grant money for the study!)

Having a Healthy Gut May Be Key to Weight Loss — Here Are the Best Foods to Eat   (I love most of these.  Need to incorporate them more.)

Get Ready to Feel the Burn With This Kick-Ass Beginner TRX Workout   (Ooh, I'll have to integrate these into some of our routines!)

Dark chocolate likely boosts memory and mood, according to new research  (I know I always feel better after our 72% squares from TJ's every night!)

Is It Possible to Do Too Much HIIT? A New Study Says Yes  (Everything in moderation, including your HIIT!)

What It's Like to Run a 5K Completely Naked  (This is really inspiring.  Kind of NSFW if buttcracks are frowned upon.)

How the Right Diet Can Help Women Stave Off Alzheimer's  (Yes, please)

Forever Young: Why Are Adults Acting Like Children?  (I get what he's saying but using Michael Jackson and people who physically augment themselves to appear younger (which doesn't work, btw) I don't think account for even 30% of the people who do it to reconnect with their inner child to not feel the suck of adulthood.   You're fooling yourself if think our grandparents didn't wish they had an outlet for that from time to time or maybe they did and it was far more societally depraved to acknowledge back then? As long as you're paying your bills and adulting responsibly, who cares if you play a video game or ask for Hello Kitty bday cake?  So bog off.)

5 Smart Decorating Ideas to Make the Most Out of a Small Patio  (Sounds good to me!)

Parents Are Reacting To A Letter Written By A Second Grader Who Wishes Cell Phones Weren't Invented  (What's even sadder?  How many people are justifying it.  No, you don't have to stare at your kids and entertain them 24/7 but you never run out of social media and internet and if you don't have balance, your kid will suffer.  We see it every weekend at restaurants.)

13 DIY Gift Basket Ideas for Father's Day  (Cute ideas that show you really put some thought into it!  I'm sending my dad a Father's Day card for the first time in 15 years.  I hope he likes poop jokes because we're never going to have the "you were always there for me" exchange!  LOL)

I was hoping for a weekend as good as last weekend weather wise but that doesn't look like it's going to happen.  We might be able to squeeze in a paddle before the heat of the day sets in if we're feeling an early wake-up time.  We'll see.

What's on your to-do list this weekend?

  1. Another weekend about to happen and this one was hard earned. Happy Friday everybody!

  2. I can't believe it's Friday already!
    I have a date tonight, a pool party tomorrow and having my little over for pool time Sunday. Going to be a burner here. Have a great weekend!

  3. Everything in moderation, even moderation. =o) It's storming out right now so one of my pups is quite stressed out, poor fella. Breaks my heart every time. It's going to be in the 90's all weekend and extremely humid. We will probably cut the lawn on Sunday since that's the dry day they are anticipating. I have a meeting, then a car appt for the hubs, then working in the office to start to clear that out.
    Have a super weekend!
