What I'm Reading This Week #32

Happy Friday everyone!  

Is it wrong I'm glad I'm taking my last walk for the week right now?  I don't know what it is but my morning walks have been particularly hard this week.  After declaring myself a rock star for being able to sleep until the alarm or get back to sleep if I woke up early and yesterday morning I was up at 5:30 am as usual and feeling like crap.  I feel like it's a real victory to have walked every day this week (including in the rain) because it was truly the last thing I felt like doing first thing in the morning.  

Enough about my walking woes, let's step up to...

Bride-to-be shamed by personal trainer on Twitter — and her response is perfect  (Douche nozzle is too kind a term for this guy.  Whoever taught him "shaming can be a great motivator" needs to be smacked firmly about the head and neck.)

Meal Prep Hack: This Is How Long You Can Keep Meat in the Fridge and Freezer (Or double the freezer time with a Food Saver.  I'm telling you...we just ate 18-month-old turkey a few weeks ago, and it tasted the same as the day I froze it!  (affiliate link))

10 Causes of Body Aches That Have Nothing to Do With Getting Old  (Good things to keep in mind.)

8 Signs You Need a Chiropractor  (So basically if you breathe.)

Selfies—Living in the Era of Filtered Photographs  (This is super sad, and the filtered IG or Snapchat photos look creepy, not all.)

Do you sit too much? Sedentary Lifestyle, Health Impacts, and Solutions  (I need to make sure I get up and just touch my toes every half hour.  My hips pay for it every single day.)

The Midlife Unraveling  (The first italics paragraph...learn it, know it, live it.)

This Is The Most Important Ingredient Of A Lasting Relationship  (SO true!)

How to Make This the Summer of Missing Out  (I didn't check a single personal social media account for three days last week, and it was heaven, and I missed nothing.  People aren't posting real life on there anyway.)

Panera is launching double bread bowls — and fans are already in love  (*puts on my eatin' pants and waits with baited breath for the first cold snap*)

‘We’re closed forever!’: How the search for the perfect selfie led to bedlam at an Ontario sunflower farm  (Reaffirming why people suck.)

The Lost Art of the Phone Call  (Sigh.)

No clue what's on tap this weekend which isn't a great way to start things out because we waste time playing the "I don't know, what do you want to do" game. 

What are you up to this weekend?

  1. wow, 32 weeks in now. This year has flown by so fast. I have no idea what I want to get into this weekend but it'd be nice to do something different, whatever that is. I wish there were still arcades. Like, regular ones not these barcades we have now where you have to buy a drink just to justify playing your favorite games.

  2. Happy Friday!
    My son and his gf are visiting this weekend, can't wait!
