Link Love: JAM PACKED!

HAPPY FRIDAY. You don’t know how good it feels to get through this week. It’s been a rough one. Weekends are actually pretty tough around here too since there is a lot of downtime and the days move super sloooooow. But I’m just grateful to have made it through.

Today it’s time for another round of link love! I’d like to make these more frequent than I have in the past because I always feel like I have so much cool stuff to share! This one is especially jam-packed with food, fun, and interesting reads.

[Enter to win your very own standing desk HERE!]

It’s been a while since my last Link Love post so I have TONS of good stuff to share today. But before I get into that I just wanted to thank you all for the extra love these past few days. They’ve been….rough, to say the least. Basically, some decisions were made that were out of my control and I am reeling from that. I feel like I’ve been dealt a big blow to my motivation and drive to get healthy. I’m feeling pretty hopeless and defeated.

Link Love: February 2015

[Have you entered my Swanson Vitamins giveaway yet? $50 dollars to their online store up for grabs!]

Happy Friday, friends! I wanted to give you all a little update and also make a request.

If you follow me on Instagram you may already know, but right now I am dealing with a weird injury. It’s only been diagnosed as inflammation under the kneecap but it’s causing me a lot of pain and fully restricting me from my normal exercise. For the next week I can’t do any lower body exercise whatsoever until I see my doctor again on Wednesday. It’s really frustrating and I know it’s probably my own fault from jumping back into running so quickly, but I really had no guidance or direction as to how much I should have been doing. I was cleared, felt good, and just so ready to get back into the things I love. But that was an error on my part and now I’m paying for it. So for the next little bit I’ll only be doing upper body and core stuff. If you have any fun workouts, send them my way! I need all the inspiration I can get. Thank you to everyone who has sent me well wishes so far. I can’t wait to remember what’s it’s like to not be in pain and just be able to walk normally.

Link Love: First of 2015

Friday Friday Friday! TGIF to the max this week. My brain is sufficiently fried which means it’s perfect time for some easy reading. Plus we are a month into 2015 and I haven’t done a LINK LOVE post yet! Time to change that!

Before we get to that though, I thought it would be fun to share a high and low for the week…
