Good morning! I hope your weekend has been safe and restful thus far. I went out with some of my coworkers Friday evening and I had the day off yesterday, which was quite nice. I got a much-needed haircut, did some babysitting, and watched Gilmore Girls, which I have never watched before. All in all, it was a fairly productive Saturday. To get today started, I’m linking up with Amanda to share a few good reads with you. Enjoy!
An excellent, honest article about one woman’s experience realizing that being thin does not mean being happy.
I love how blunt and authentic this post is. In a world of diet advice, we all need to find what works for us as individuals.
This post makes an excellent point about how ridiculous our society’s views toward calories are. Calories are energy for our bodies, not demons to be exorcised.
A good post on how our exposure to the media makes us feel about ourselves and our bodies.
There are so many misconceptions about eating disorders, and these misconceptions lead to a substantial amount of ignorance in our society. Yesterday, I had a frustrating conversation with my dad that reminded me of just how ignorant most people are when it comes to understanding disordered eating. This is an excellent post counteracting some of the myths and judgments people hold against those with eating disorders with quotes and information from professionals who know the brutal reality of these disorders.
This post was exactly what I needed to read this week. Despite how far I have come in recovery, I still fall into places where I feel like the journey is never-ending. The middle ground of recovery has proven trying for me, and I know that I am not alone in that.
A good article on a woman who has chosen to share her experience with an eating disorder through comedy which definitely brings up some interesting points.
Seriously, people. We should be over this.
I like meditating with affirmations because it helps me retain my focus, but sometimes it can feel a little ridiculous. These are some good tips on choosing affirmations that are beneficial to you.
This is great! Chasing after a toddler is a full-time job in and of itself, never mind trying to do anything else on top of that. Parents have my utmost respect.
Because sometimes you just have to watch videos of cute animals being cute.
That’s all I have for you today, folks! Enjoy your Sunday and I will see you back here later this week, which happens to be National Eating Disorders Awareness Week. Have a great remainder of your weekend!
