Link Love: what I've been reading…

Happy Friday beauties!

I hope you’ve had a good week. It has been super busy around here with the kickoff of The PBP. As busy as it is I love getting to know the new group of motivated women and walking through their goals with them. I can’t help but feel inspired and blessed by the opportunity to walk alongside them as they make positive changes in their life.

Did you know that when you wake up in the morning and stretch that “feel good” feeling is actually the feeling of your fascia stretching, NOT your muscles? It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about fascia here on the blog and this article reminded me that it’s probably time to revisit the topic here for those of you who are working to improve your physical performance and well-being.

Why hitting the snooze button can screw up your entire day. I’ve never been one to snooze and this article confirms my beliefs. 🙂 (

Why you need to stop drinking diet soda right now. (I have a lot to add to this but this sums up enough reasons for you to kick the habit to the curb). (

As many of you know, I’ve been in a major balance/schedule overhaul over the past few weeks and I’m excited to share some new tips and things I’ve learned with you on Monday. Be sure to come back and check it out. 🙂

Have a great weekend!

    I use glass jars for bulk items as well – these decals look perfect for it! The educational chalkboard would be cute, too, for my toddler’s room.

      Sorry, I commented on the wrong blog post – this was meant for the decals:) Too many tabs open!

    I love a similar pilaf from the Oh She Glows cookbook (there’s some chili flakes and onion as the main differences, I think). It’s great with alfalfa sprouts and bibb lettuce as lettuce wraps or on your favorite grain wrap.

    Great summary! The granola looks delish, and I’m glad you included a piece on work/life balance!
