Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a great week. I haven’t been quite as active on the blog front this week. I’ve been so busy at work… can’t do it all! When I feel like I’m being pulled in a million different directions, I try to take a step back and evaluate what I have going on. The first thing I do is drop anything I can that’s not mandatory and that doesn’t have a added benefit to my life. That step alone tends to make me feel a lot better. Although it seems counterintuitive, I make sure I’m taking the time to eat well, exercise, and get plenty of sleep when things are feeling extra stressful. If I don’t, it just makes everything feel that much worse. Hope this helps if you’re busy, too : )
One of the ways I like to unwind at night is by reading my favorite blogs. Here are some of the recipes and articles that caught my eye this week:
Natural Spring Cleaning – this post from Davida at The Healthy Maven is an amazing round-up of ideas to try in the home, mind and kitchen. I can’t wait to make some of my own cleaning products using the tips in her post! I like to do a spring cleaning of appliances this time of year – 1-2 cups of vinegar and a sprinkle of baking soda + run 1 cycle + air dry.
Lindsey posts great workouts complete with instructions, video and a printable/pinnable option – I can’t wait to give this 30 minute AMRAP a try sometime soon. Any workout <30 minutes, and I’ll try it!
Have you read anything great blog posts this week? What do you do when you start to feel too busy and overwhelmed?
Happy Friday everyone! To those of you celebrating the holiday this weekend, I hope that you have a great weekend and get to spend time with family and friends. The weather is supposed to be pretty nice here in Philly, so we’re hoping to get outside and enjoy the Spring weather. Here are a few favorites from around the interwebs this week. Enjoy!
Happy Friday! I hope you all have something fun planned for the weekend. We are having dinner with family in Atlantic City and hopefully relaxing a bunch, too : )
Atlantic City, NJ
I like to share links to articles or blog posts that I read throughout the week on Fridays. I hope you check some of them out and let me know what you think! Have a great weekend.
Workplace Wellness Initiatives – I definitely agree with #3 and #4! In terms of #5, I don’t like to be too pushy with my healthy ways, so I try to just set a good example and let people talk to me about it if they want to. If you do happen to have some like-minded health conscious people in your office, ask if they want to start a walking or lunch group that meets every once in a while to motivate each other.
Spring Clean Your Fitness Routine – the biggest change in my fitness routine from winter –> spring has been getting outside more. Also, I always try to make my gym workouts as efficient as possible, but the nice weather has me even more motivated to get in and get out.
Happy Friday everyone! I had a really busy week at work this week, so I’m just dropping in quickly to share a couple of favorites from this week. Check out the following for some interesting reads or workouts:
Woo hoo, it’s Friday! I hope you all had a great week. Each Friday, I’m going to feature interesting articles, recipes, and workouts that I’ve either read or tried throughout the week. I hope you join in and share some interesting things with me, too!
Standing Desk Timer– this was an exciting find this week! I found this awesome browser based time that allows you to basically set an interval timer for your standing/sitting at a desk or table. I highly recommend it, even if you don’t have a standing desk!
Hi! I hope you’ve had a great week. As an avid healthy lifestyle blog reader for the last several years, I always looked forward to my favorite bloggers’ “Friday Favorites” post that provided articles, tips, pictures or other tidbits that they picked up throughout the week.
Here are a few of my favorites from around the web this week: Fitnessista’s Winter Shape Up 2016– I love Fitnessista’s Shape Up challenges! Fitnessista (aka. Gina) provides 4-weeks worth of awesome workouts that will challenge and inspire you. Gina teams up with Anneto also provide 4-weeks worth of delicious, healthy recipes. If you’re busy, join the group and do as much as you can! Something is better than nothing.
