Madison just linked to this on her own blog in response to someone asking about cravings, and I think it’s something everyone should read. Especially with all the “craving [whatever]? you need [something else]!” stuff that goes around fitblrs.
Okay, here is the first letter I plan on leaving. I’m meeting a coworker to chat at Paradigm Cafe, a little cafe in Sheboygan that I really love. Depending on how busy it is (and how likely it would be for someone to see me leave it), I’m going to leave it on the table or in a book there.
Obviously, there’s no guarantee that someone will find it — or actually visit this page — but I just hope it will bring them some positivity. I know I’ve need it a lot lately, and the people around me have been so helpful, but sometimes we get so caught up in our own lives and don’t give as much as the people around us need. So sometimes anonymous people have to step in, and I think it’s awesome and fun, too.
My sister is an amazing young woman who started a project to put more positivity into the world. Check out the blog and join her!
This cage-free egg salad from Whole Foods is the most delicious thing I’ve eaten in weeks. And it’s cheap. I’m in love.
Chocolate soy milk, a honeycrisp apple, and cage-free egg salad on asiago hearth bread for a late lunch. A thunderstorm is on its way!
Friendly reminder that 99.9% of us in the fitblr community are not professionals and that we can only answer based on our experience/research and therefore you should always consult a professional (doctor, nutritionist, therapist) with serious questions.
Also, please don’t call us “rude” or “bitchy” when we tell you to talk to a doctor instead.
I just finished writing my review of Barre 54, though I’m waiting to hear back from the studio about a final aspect that I know is important to other people. I might not publish it right away, though, as I’m hoping to get Holly’s review as well and publish them together. But we’ll see. Mine is long enough to require a Read More!
That’s ridiculous. I’m shorter than you, have always weighed about the same, and I’ve done strength-training for years. Unless your doctor told you to avoid them due to a muscle issue, I’d ignore the people telling you that. For some reason, there’s the myth that’s always going around that you should “do cardio until you lose weight, then do strength-training,” which is absolute nonsense. Strength-training is not only great for your health, it also helps you lose weight. Building muscle means your body burns more calories at rest, and muscle is much more dense than fat, so you appear smaller at the same weight.Comments
I’m making this public even though it’s off-topic because lately I’ve seen a lot of people asking.
You can’t comment on or reply to a note on or reply to your post. The only way to do it is to copy-and-paste the note/reply into a new text post and put your response there. (Big tip: when your first paste it, it’ll likely be invisible due to the white font. Click the HTML button for your post, then just hit Cancel. That normally “resets” it into black font automatically.)Comments blog comments powered by Disqus
