…What I’m reading lately.
This blog and article is written by a person friend. You may remember me writing this guest post on her blog. While I don’t consider myself ‘Paleo’ at this point, even though I am basically eating Paleo on The Virgin Diet, I think this article answers some very important questions. I have heard the same hesitations from people about being a Christian and eating Paleo. It comes down to where do you stand on evolution. Personally, I don’t support the philosophical underpinnings of the Paleo lifestyle. But, you don’t have to support those to eat this way. At its root eating Paleo is a food choice and not a religious conviction. Simple. The Paleo Mama does a great job explaining this.
Here is another one from one of my favorite women in the fitness world, Nia Shanks. I just love her slogan, “Lift Like a Girl: Be the Most Awesome Version of You.” Yep, I think that explains it pretty well. And, DARN!, she beat me to that awesomeness. Anyway, this is a great article of tips on how to prevent yourself from binge eating. These tips just make sense and they help create a healthy, sustainable lifestyle…..not just another diet. I just love it when people provide awesome advice like this.
Lord, knows it is hard to eat well and stay on a reasonable budget. I don’t know about you but I am not rich and I have to control what I spend. A common response to eating whole foods is, “But, it is cheaper to buy the chips than the carrots.” Yes, in the short term it is cheaper but in the long term, with doctor bills, it becomes far more expensive. But, I digress. Here is 20 ways you can build up your kitchen and pantry for success on a whole foods lifestyle. Once again, this article is full of “it just makes sense” advice. Check it out! Take one tip to work on and then build to two. Next thing you know you are eating whole, REAL foods most days. How does THAT make you feel?? 🙂
This article is not fitness related but pertains a lot to me. Over the last few years I have come to the conclusion that I am not shy and anti-social. I am an introvert. I have been reading a fair amount about what it means to be an “introvert” and what I’m reading makes perfect sense. I especially enjoyed this article. It explains ME and other introverts so well. Check it out and you’ll understand me a little better.
Bodybuilding.com continues to be my favorite website for training advice and they did not disappoint with this article. How many people do you know who are either constantly talking about their abs or are constantly training their abs. Everyone wants that tight core and dare we pursue the goal of a six-pack? A tight midsection is THE mark of a fit body these days. For that reason there is so much information on how to get that tight core …. good and bad advice. Here is good, sound advice for you. But, always remember. If you don’t have your diet in check you will never achieve the abs you want. A thousand ab moves a day will not give you a six pack if you are eating fast food every day. Cold, hard truth. Check out this article if you want to get abs the sensible way.
There you go. Let me know what you think! And if you come across an excellent article please share with me!!!
