Good morning, and happy Saturday!
I hope everyone’s weekends are off to a good start – what are y’all up to this weekend? Is anyone planning to see the new Star Trek movie? (Not gonna lie: I’ve been looking forward to that for months – I can’t wait to see it!)
In addition to our Trekkie plans, I’m excited to do some cooking that will, pleaseohpleaseohplease, yield better results than this week’s Great Crock Pot Experiment. GF blueberry pancakes, Mexican breakfast scramble, and these banana bread protein bars from Oh She Glows are all on deck — the kitchen will look like a disaster area once I’m done, and I’ll probably start weeping when I see all the dirty dishes, but oh well.
On the workout front, I decided to go running yesterday and give my muscles an extra day of recovery before my next lifting session. I fired up my beloved Charity Miles app and busted out a few miles for Girl Up, a United Nations Foundation campaign that enables American girls to help raise awareness and funds for UN programs focusing on women and girls in the developing world. (How cool is that? I seriously wish these sorts of things had existed when I was a teenager, because I would’ve been all over this like white on rice.)
Anyways, since I ran yesterday, today’s workout will involve getting my strength training on. For now, though, I’m doing some reading while enjoying a cuppa joe.
I apologize for the fact that there are so many articles in this week’s round-up. There are just so many good ones, and I couldn’t decide which ones to post…so I posted all of them. (Sorry, sorry!) I figured this would allow y’all to decide which ones you want to read instead of me deciding for you. It’s a mo’ betta approach, right? 🙂
Happy reading, and have a lovely Saturday!
