  1. Yes! I love the article about the 90-year-old runners so much! Great advice in there- “be consistent, be persistent, keep moving.”
    I’m going to go back and read some more of these- I did read the one about tipping. Yes, tips are a big part of my income! Please don’t be stingy! : )

  2. In the last few months, I’ve really noticed the decrease in my flexibility post surgeries. I actually decided to return to pilates this past week, and I took a stretch class for an hour. One hour of just feeling how your body feels is such a luxury. One thing the instructor kept saying is “motion is lotion” for your body / joints. I never thought about it that way, and I’ve definitely discounted the importance of stretching if I’m not working out, but I am going to try and be more deliberate about it for awhile to see if it can help improve how I feel. At a minimum, I need to rebuild some of the stability I lost in surgery, too. I had not really noticed it in the last two years, but it’s become really clear in the last few months.

  3. Ugh, tipping. When I was in college, I could work in ND or MN. I opted to waitress in Mn because you got minimum wage there, which was something like $5.25 at the time. They had a different minimum wage in ND – it was around $2 I think? Like ridiculously low! I have started to see more restaurants around us eliminate tipping and I think it’s a good move.

  4. There is just so much going on in the world! Its so heavy. We just had a conversation with our boys about tips. After a dinner my husband filled out the ticket and my little ones eyes went big. “Ill serve us for that much money!” Go ahead I told him. Its not easy. Been there done that. He didn’t realize there was a pay difference. Now he knows better! Tips should be extra, not depended on to make ends meat.

  5. So many good links again. The intuitive eating was well appreciated as I am trying to get better at that and read up on it.

  6. Always such good links!! and, every tie you post about muesli, I think, hm, I should try that instead of granola sometime… and then I never do!! Some day… (actually, a *savory* muesli, if such a thing exists, would be interesting!!!).

  7. Thank you for sharing my post – 5 Things You May Not Know About Intuitive Eating!
