The Weekly Reader

by tinareale on March 11, 2013

Happy afternoon! I hope you all have enjoyed a smooth Monday so far. Things have gone that way for me and I can tell you that it certainly makes Monday a little less painful. What else makes Monday a little less painful? Sharing some of my favorite links from the week! Take a peek and see if anything catches your eye. And you can also check out my Saturday Shares post (where YOU share YOUR favorite links from your blog on the weekend) for even more great posts to read. Smile on and get lost in some blogs.


Get Your Fitness Going

Eat It Up!

Reflect & Grow

  • Anyone else relate to the Pressures of Super Woman, needing to do it and have it all? Great post!
  • Do you always say “When ____, then ____”? Stop! Read this post from Katie and Enjoy Life Now.
  • Theodora brought up some really good points in her recent post about listening to your body…and that sometimes that isn’t the right thing for us.
  • Do you ever feel like your workouts aren’t “good enough” if they aren’t a certain length or intensity or type of workout? Bek discusses the need to value your workouts.
  • I can relate to this post so much on eating in secret to hide eating struggles. Worth a read, for sure!
  • There is NO perfect body.Can you accept that and the freedom that comes with it?
  • And on the same train of thought, I urge you to read Stephanie’s final Body After Baby post. Her reflections struck a chord with me.

Useful Reads .

  • Calculate your daily calorie needs based on your activity level with this trusty formula.
  • Do you understand body composition? Amanda highlights how the scale doesn’t show all.
  • Why I Hung Up My Competition Heels – a talk about metabolic damage and the mental games after competing…I could have written this post myself!
  • Another post I could have written myself? Clare’s post about What Constitutes A Binge. Although I do tend to think the amount of food moves something from emotional eating to a true binge, I agree that the emotional undertones are a big part of the issue.
  • 10 Things Moms Should Never Say To Their Daughters – Ericka wrote a post about eating disorder prevention and how we, as mothers, can do our best to promote a healthy food relationship and body image in our children. I do my best with all of the things she mentioned!

Happy reading!
