Link-Love Friday

I don't have much to say today (and I should be grading papers anyway), so I'm going to emulate the lovely Shauna and do a quick link-fest: 

  • Deb at Shedding My Fatsuit has been blogging from The Biggest Loser Resort in Utah.  I am living vicariously through her posts, since I've always wanted to try a week (or at least a few days) away at a fitness resort or spa. Here's her post on Day 4
  • Laura had a good post recently on turning weaknesses into strengths. It especially hit home for me that without my weight issues, I might have never learned many of the healthy habits I now enjoy.
  • Koren Motekaitis, who has an incredible podcast, also wrote recently about happy as a choice we can make at any time, rather than as a destination we will reach once we __________ (lose weight, get a new job, find the right guy, etc.).
  • I'm still loving the "Inside Out Weight Loss" podcast. Have you checked it out yet? Recent episodes include "Forgive Your Way Slim" and "Release Anxiety Eating."
  • Tina at Faith, Fitness, Fun shows us just how ugly life as a fitness competitor can be. She looks pretty great now that she is eating real food, I think.
Hope you have a good weekend! I am finally starting to have a more reasonable schedule, but life got pretty crazy for me for a while. Just this week I had an art class, a French class, taught two graduate classes, attended physical therapy three times, did three run workouts (one more to go), dropped my car off at the mechanic, and took the cat to the vet. And I'm volunteering at a race this weekend.  I'm as overscheduled as a suburban teenager whose mother wants to make sure she gets into a good college.


  1. Thanks for the links, Jen. I don't follow that many bloggers, even through a reader, because I get lost in reading and forget to do other stuff. It's great having friends post links to things they read and found helpful, hopeful, fun, interesting and/or inspiring.

    Enjoy your weekend. How the kitty doing?

  2. I am trying to love Inside Out Weight Loss! The content and topics is so fantastic but the way she speaks drives me mad! All those pauses in random places. I will persist though coz the subject matter is so interesting :)
