What I'm Reading This Week #34

It's finally Friday!  Woo hooooo!  This week has dragged on forevahhhh.  We have implemented doing 2 mile walks in the morning (indoors) the past two weeks and I'm not gonna lie, I'm not a fan yet.  (Only of the time I get with the Mr in the morning now)  My heart rate takes FOREVER to even get into the fat burning zone but we have known we need to get in more movement for years so this is our attempt at it.  We also have done "two a days" before and it backfired spectacularly so we have no expectations but I'm hoping it works to help work off the rest of the home cookin' from last week.  We'll change it up between the two miles we currently walk, then mix up one milers on cardio days and two milers on strength days, then one milers another week and just try to keep our bodies guessing so it's not in a constant state of exhaustion which is how it was the week coming back from retreat.

Now let's get into:

8 Signs You're Not Getting Enough Magnesium  (I need to get more for sure.)

How to build bigger biceps: A little exercise each day improves muscles more than one big weekly workout  (Wow, this is a really interesting study given the different test groups!)

Is losing weight an important health goal?   (Courtesy of the Mr and just one more piece of friggin' confusing crap to not give us a clear answer.)

Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid May Help With NonAlcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, New Research Suggests—4 Foods That Deliver Both  (Sounds good but the first one on the list ain't happenin'.  The rest...bring 'em on!)

How to Act in Your Best Interests  (Inquiring minds want to know!  Wow, anyone else remember that commercial from the 80's for the National Enquirer?)

How to Style Your Home Like a Pro  (Obviously don't ask me.  We've been living in chaos for 7 weeks.)

Some Epson Printers Programmed to Eventually Self-Brick  (This does not surprise me in the least.  They all pretty much suck!)

30 Hilariously Relatable Comics About Everyday Life  (OMG, 11 and 12...hilarious!  But really too many relatable to list.)

You know what's fun?  Getting jolted out of bed by the smoke detector going off once over your head at 2:15am and never getting to go back to sleep.  We've got them on order and are hoping for better results than some of the one star folk.  I feel like we haven't gotten the full 10 years out of this set but still, I'm praying these last a good while.  And WHY do these only go off in the middle of the night and never during the day?? 

So here's your friendly reminder that if it's been 10 years or more since you've replaced your smoke detectors, it's time.  We also bought new fire extinguishers because those are 26 years old and my fire fighter grandpa showed a big sign afterward that he was in agreement with our new purchases.  Okay, okay...just keep it from going off again for no reason please Gramps!  

Oh and I have to say, I was surprised between here and FB how many people were team pineapple on pizza!

  1. Yep get those smoke detectors changed out. Trust me you do not want them to just start going off randomly. I do think there is a law of physics that states a false alarm must happen between 2 and 3 AM. Have a great weekend everybody!

  2. Happy Friday!
    Heading to a 50th bday dinner with the inlaws.
    Have a great weekend!

  3. It's been a super productive week so I'm planning on continuing that into the weekend. Have a great weekend!
