What I'm Reading This Week #4

Happy fan-flippin-tastic Friday y'all.  I hope your week went off without a hitch and you're ready for some weekend shenanigans.  We're still kind of reeling over the information overload we took in last weekend and trying to figure out what will work for us going forward.  We saw this video about eating 7-11% under your TDEE instead of the huge slash of 30% deficit most calculators give you.  While it sounds good, it's also terrifying because that's a lot more calories than we're used to consuming.  I actually was somewhat low this week and I need to figure out some grab and go stuff that doesn't have fat like cheese/nuts, etc.  So again...if anyone is reading this and has some go to snacks, we'd really love to hear it in the comments.

Now let's hear about:

20 Ways to Boost Your Protein Intake at Every Meal  (I need all the help I can get.)

5 Ways To "Feed" Your Muscles Daily To Support Longevity  (Good tips.  I put some of this in my oatmeal Monday and while it wasn't bad, it changed the texture of the oatmeal so I need to tweak with a bit more liquid or something.)

Why Sleep Doesn't Come Easy To People With ADHD & What To Do About It  (Sorry but I cherish the bed rotting time with my man!)

Snacks to Lower Cholesterol: A Guide  (Some good stuff to keep on hand!)

5 Surprise Retirement Expenses (If anyone is retired, feel free to leave other surprises we may not know about!)

The Most Common Causes of Death in the Home and How to Prevent Them  (Always good to know what's lurking in your home to take you out.)

Con Watch: Artificial Intelligence Is Making Scams Worse  (Sadly my favorite great aunt just fell for one.  Stay alert y'all.)

Miss some posts here this week?  Catch up below!

I guess I might be ready for the tree to come down.  We clearly aren't getting any snow again ever.  We've already got people bitching about the rain here.  I will take the rain but in January, I want some friggin' snow please!  I'd like to find something not house oriented to get into this weekend but no idea what.  We basically feel like we live in an upgraded prison and that's not super fun so a change of scenery would be nice.

Would love to hear what you're up to this weekend as well as those snack suggestions!

  1. I have no idea what to do to get out of the house but I do know that it's time for me to get to some of the house maintenance stuff that is due like filters and stuff. So I plan on getting that all done at some point. Have a great weekend everyone!

  2. My snacks are nothing to write home about, but they get me through: Boars Head turkey breast lunch meat- 1 slice wrapped around a pickle (odd, I know, but the crunch is the key), 2 mandarin oranges (Halos, Cuties, etc) with a piece of cheddar cheese, 2 hard-boiled eggs, and lastly a sliced apple with 2 tablespoons of peanut butter. I also due sliced tomatoes on a plate with minced garlic on top with a drizzle of olive oil, but I know you're not a 'mater fan.=o)
    I hope you can get out and about for a while from the homestead. I'm heading out for a walk at my favorite park and then will come home and work on house stuff. Once I sit down, my knees will be toast so I'll take advantage of the daylight. lol Have a great weekend!!
