Healthy Reads & Inspiration

The end of this past week was rough for me. I tend to get bad headaches when storms move in, so that wasn’t fun. And I was really busy, with fun stuff, thankfully! But busy. So you know I’m looking forward to doing a little bit of #lazySunday reading. Besides continuing to read “#girlboss,” I found a few great reads to share with y’all, too!

Great tips in this article! 7 Workout Habits You Should Drop Now
I thought No. 1 was interesting and a little unexpected, and I am definitely guilty of Nos. 2 and 4.

This made me glad that I get seven to eight hours of sleep most nights! Anna Wintour on Brooklyn, the Rumors, and the One Thing She Will Never Wear
OK, so this isn’t a health-related article, or necessarily inspirational, but y’all know I love fashion and as a journalist, I am loving the 73 Questions interviews on They’re brilliant! And of course I was excited for an inside look at Anna. Her unauthorized biography “Front Row” is also fabulous, if you want a deeper look at her life. A Q&A with the authors of “The Calories In, Calories Out Cookbook”
This cookbook is an interesting concept! I like the idea of knowing the calories in a dessert so you can aim to burn it off at the gym. However, it may also lead me to be even more obsessed about calculating numbers!


Have you read any good health-related articles lately?

    Lazy Sunday reading is my favorite! That really surprises me with the elliptical in that article too! Here I thought it was decent exercise and easier on knees and joints. They make a great point that it is easy to slack with it though, because it is true!

    Have a great week!

      I think the elliptical can be a good workout, if we don’t lean on the machine or keep the incline too low. The same is true for the treadmill. I’m not perfect with any of these exercises, but I’m always surprised to see people hanging onto the handles on a treadmill. Pump your arms, people!
