What I'm Reading This Week #48

Happy Friday all!  Can you believe tomorrow is December 1st?  


I can't even, y'all!  Let's get right to...

Exercises Your Trainer Doesn't Want You to Do  (If this gives me the green light to nix backbows, I'm on it!)

Heat or Ice: Which Is Better for Your Workout Injuries?  (Good info to know)

Healthy Weight, Healthy Mind: A Formerly Overweight Physician Offers Her Advice  (Sound advice for sure.)

The DOs and DON’Ts of Self-Myofascial Release   (Very informative.  Don't chase the same spots.  If you're like me, you look like a cheetah by week's end.)

The Best Butt Exercises for Knee Pain—No Squats or Lunges Included  (Ooh, definitely incorporating more of these!)

Can one big holiday meal make you gain weight?  (I vote yes.)

Here's Everything You Need to Know About Dry Needling  (In case you want to try it like I did.)

30 Ways to Save Money Like Your Grandma Did  (Grandma knew her stuff.)

Biltmore Estate at Christmas Is Something Everyone Should Witness in Their Lifetime  (This is on my bucket list for sure!)

Eat, drink and be stressed out: Holidays aren’t all fun and games   (Good tips to stay on top of your holiday game.)

27 Christmas Card Display Ideas That Turn Season’s Greetings Into Works of Art  (SOOO many great ideas!  I love #5 and would love to use vintage ski's instead.)

24 Stories About the Touching Kindness of Strangers That’ll Make You Tear Up  (Sometimes you just need to read about good stuff to restore your faith in humanity.)

Woman Celebrates Divorce By Blowing Up Her Wedding Dress (I don't know why this made me laugh so hard.  Actually, I do.  The dog running in the second shot like "I'm outta here people!")

We don't have any definite plans that I'm aware of.  I'm sure some Christmas movies, hot chocolate and sitting with the tree plugged in will be in order and I'm totally down with that!

What are you up to this weekend?

  1. Wow, yeah this is crazy how fast we got to December. 48 weeks into 2018. Seems like just yesterday I was marveling at seeing week 1 in your Friday links. Happy Friday everybody!

  2. Lots of plans for this weekend. Two minor hockey games, the local village Christmas tree lighting party tonight, a pancake fundraising breakfast with Santa tomorrow, and I want to get the outdoor Christmas lights up at some point. I also want to start my holiday baking.

  3. I was really hoping Burpees would be on that list of exercises to avoid :) But I'm happy to never do another Superman again as well :)

  4. Great articles. I'd seen the wedding dress one last week and it cracked me up!

    As for the weekend I just finished the very last of my shopping, which was pretty much gift cards for the hubs he'd mentioned. I have a meeting tomorrow, then a drive out to the burbs to meet a couple of friends for lunch. I grocery shopped this morning so we wouldn't have it to do over the weekend since the hubs probably has to work tomorrow. So aside from laundry, which I'll start on today, I only have some wrapping and boxing up to do and I'm all done. Yippee! I also bought a couple of pine wreaths for outside that smell really good. I put them on either side of the garage and moved the bows to the bottom and they look nice. We're due to get monsoon-type rain tomorrow so it's going to be muddy and floody. LOL
