  • Back to basics —> Here are three basic exercises you may be doing incorrectly.
  • Yes to everything in this post about missed fitness opportunities, including not thinking about them as mistakes/failure. Just ways to improve, people!

5 Food Favorites


  • Sweet potato and pomegranate salad. Sounds like me, huh?
  • Anne wrote a whole post about quinoa, with fun facts and recipes. For you readers who are thinking, quin-whaaa, definitely read this one! I made the cranberry and pecan version for lunch this week (pictured above).
  • Three different ways to make baked brie bites. This has holiday appetizer written all over it.
  • Cranberry sauce. Not from a jar.

What have you guys been reading this week? Share in the comments!

I also want to start sharing the things you guys send me throughout the week. I used to do this when I was posting Friday Favorites more often, so let’s make it happen again. I love seeing the things you’re reading, making, eating, doing for workouts, etc. Send them along to me via email or social media, and I’ll try my best to include/share in these posts.

Happy weekend!
