Good Saturday morning my friends.
I’m pumped I don’t have much on the go this weekend and I plan on trying out a bit of a test run this morning to see how my knee is feeling.
People Are So Annoyed By That Meme About Instagram Notifications That Isn’t Even Accurate <– I confessed to being a hypocrite in a Facebook group and I shall confess it here. Yes, I did post about turning notifications on in Instagram. Then the following day I deleted the post. Why? 1 – because maybe some people do want to follow my posts, 2 – people might be living under a rock and missed the change? Now, am I worried about the change? Not really. I have pretty good engagement on what I post and I do my best to utilize hashtags well, which generates engagement on what I post. I’m interested to see if I can find new accounts, or engage with people that I may have otherwise missed. So, if you like an account, be sure to like their posts, and leave comments, that’ll keep them showing up in your feed.
I’m far more irritated with the changes to Bloglovin’ than I am Instagram. Sure, discovering new blogs is fun, but when I’m pressed for time I do not need blogs I’ve not subscribed to showing up in my feed. Bloglovin’ obviously never considered there’s a reason I haven’t subscribed (or have unsubscribed) to those blogs.
What Does A Runner’s Body Look Like? #IHaveARunnersBody <– I love everything about this.
How I Blog: My Posting Process <– I think it’s really interesting to look inside how other bloggers determine what to post, and how to write it.
Currently to date the government has been responding to the needs of the food industry, not to the public’s interest in obtaining healthy foods and that needs to change <– another interview from Emma on nutrition month. This one pulled no punches.
The surprising problem with calorie counting: Calories in <– I was unaware of most of these – fascinating.
The surprising problem with calorie counting: Calories out <– the inaccuracies are really fascinating.
10 easy, healthy snack ideas for the desk dweller <– Bri totally nails what so many people experience in their day-to-day. Confession: I have definitely purchased a Lean Cuisine for lunch more times than I care to admit. For anyone interested, here’s what a typical workday looks like for me:
Breakfast – skyr with frozen berries (defrosted overnight)
Snack – trail mix
Lunch – 1/4 sweet potato with kale and roasted chicken
Snack – apple or orange
The Best Newsletters for Bloggers <– I’ve been thinking a lot about my newsletter lately since I haven’t sent anything in about two months. Whoops. See, I don’t want to waste your time and I know how many emails I get in a day, and how many I delete without opening, and I don’t want to do that to you, but I also want to be useful, so, we’ll see what happens 🙂
5 f*cks Ive stopped giving <– So much yes to everything Carla says in this post!!
Hating Yourself Doesn’t Make You Thin, Just Like Loving Yourself Doesn’t Make You Fat <– I really, really needed to read this. I do plan on sharing more….soon (I think) but this is something I truly needed to read this week.
The Hunger & Fullness Scale (AKA – How to Stop Dieting) <– Also written by Kylie (above). I felt it necessary to share this as well.
Food Shaming and Comparison: The Theif of Joy <– this is something I used to do, and the people I spent time with used to do. When out for brunch with Brie and Laura last week, no one said anything about something being “bad” or “feeling bad”. We all made the best choices for us and ate what we felt comfortable eating (for me, that was every.last.bite) and that was it.
8 (Annoying) Things to Avoid Doing on Social Media <– if you like 12 of my photos in a row, I’m going to go “cool” and that’s it. I’m most certainly not going to follow you back.
