What I'm Reading This Week #37

Happy Friday everyone!  You got your boogie shoes on?  I do!  Not that my boogie-ing would be too pretty right now.  Mama gots tendinitis in the hips.  (Thanks, squats!)  I got the full monty at the chiro yesterday.   Belt sander across the arse and lower back, thumping drill thing in my lower spine, hips and bootius maximus, lower back stretching, hip pops, pretzel twist, leg ultrasound, ankle yanks, lasered arm scar tissue with an end on the spine roller bed.


Let's hustle right into...

Curvy shoppers grill retail execs: 'Plus-size' applies to body shapes other than 'hourglass'  (It'd be nice if something good came from this summit.  Dear Execs...tall fat women exist.  We are not unicorns.)

These Small Habits Are Scientifically Proven to Help You Lose Weight   (I keep meaning to incorporate habit #2)

A Trainer's 6 Top Tips For How to Stop Overeating  (That lip stapling bit seems a bit extreme. 
Ha!  Made ya look!)

15 Beautiful Ways to Reclaim Your Life When You're Broken   (Now I won't be able to get the song Broken by lovelytheband out of my head.)

If Your Workouts Last Longer Than 13 Minutes, Science Says You're Wasting Your Time   (Interesting findings.  Then in 5 years they'll tell us something different, I'm sure.)

The Biggest Mistakes People Make When Apologizing  (#2 reminds me of the worst apology I ever heard when a family member told the Mr. "I'm sorry you feel I was X."  Not "I'm sorry I'm a flaming douchebag" but I'm sorry YOU feel that way" which is the same as saying eff you.)

A retailer is being called out for selling a fat-shaming sweatshirt — but the brand says 'it's the opposite of what it seems'  (Look, I get what they were trying to do but yeah, whoever thought that was a good idea to bring attention to trolling comments by making them a ridiculous priced sweatshirt needs to be flicked in the forehead.)

Vet Reveals What Happens in a Dying Pet's Final Moments, Breaks Hearts Around the World  (It's not what you think, it has nothing to do with the "process" of what is happening but as someone who has had to put two angel babies to sleep, it is imperative every pet owner reads this.  Do this last act of love for them, PLEASE.  Happy 11th rainbow anniversary to our angel baby.  Miss you, little girl.)

'The Candy Man' Gives Away 6,000 Hershey Bars in Decade-Long Act of Kindness  (What a sweet nugget.)

It's grocery weekend and I think we're going to try to cram it all in today so we don't have to waste any time Saturday or Sunday.  We've got a date night planned Saturday and nothing will kill a mood quicker than a trip to Trader Joe's.  Speaking of which, I saw their pumpkin products are trickling in.  I will report back next week on what, if anything I spied with my little eye.

What are you up to this weekend?  What pumpkin product are you looking forward to from anywhere?

  1. Looking forward to our date night and to getting all the grocery stuff done before that. Have a great weekend everyone!

  2. Happy Friday indeed! Great articles! We are cutting the lawn after work tonight because he may have to work tomorrow and I'm going to an outdoor craft show in the morning. Then I have a few more things to buy for the hubs for his birthday and our anniversary later this month, so I'll do that on my way home. Then it's just house stuff and grocery shopping. It's going to be very hot this weekend, so aside from Saturday morning, I hope to be indoors most of the time.

    Have a super weekend and enjoy your date night!

  3. Good reads. RE the apologizing article, I twitch when people just say "my bad," as if that's somehow sincere. Your apology isn't even worth a full grammatically correct sentence?

    I don't know if I have you to blame or if it's because I'm forced to do a lot of landscaping due to some driveway work, but I'm anxious to do some pumpkins this year and may drag grandma's sewing machine out to see if I can make a little dude to sit on the bench I just installed. I look forward to your decorating posts.
