How to fight for our reproductive rights, based on how much time you have. This whole topic gets me so riled up. Yeah, yeah, pro-life and all, (PSA: nobody WANTS abortions, but they can be necessary for a variety of reasons!), but what about the repercussions for thousands of women and their health and access to health care?

I enjoyed Sarah’s post about Do It Now // Do It Later. We all have things we do right away and things we procrastinate. Why do you think that is?

Share a good link with me in the comments!
  1. This is a really great list, San. Thanks for posting, as always. The junk food link is something I have been thinking about a LOT lately. I think there tends to be so much value judgment attached to certain foods, and that is wrong. Food is food, and it can be a source of joy and sharing and happiness, as well as fuel and nutrition. And food deserts exist and really affect people’s health. I think there is a certain classism that attaches itself to food, like we don’t eat THAT, it’s junk. Anyway, thanks for this great link and all the others!

  2. So many great links! I haven’t read the junk food piece yet, but I have been around a couple of people who have a wildly different approach to talking/thinking about food and it’s making me so frustrated. I wonder if I can find a way to send them that article… although I fear they would remain completely oblivious.

    Now I am off to learn about how to optimize my gmail! Thanks for the links!

  3. The “there’s no such thing as getting ahead” article resonated with me. And you got me! I love visting FLW houses but I am very glad that I don’t live in one!

  4. for long run, I always pick a good long podcast to listen to, lately has been Tim Ferriss’s, always on spot to keep me wanting to keep running to keep listening.
    I’ve read good books lately and Jim Collins interviews in Tim Ferriss were fantastic!

  5. Your link lists are great! Fascinated about the butter article – I definitely think butter tastes better in the UK than the US but I didn’t realize why.

  6. Great list as always San. For long runs I like listening to podcasts.

  7. Oh boy… training for a marathon the “dreadmill” sounds torturous to me! Ha! But I loathe running on a treadmill!!! It just sucks the life out of me.

  8. I love this, as always! The running articles are great. I don’t drink coffee, but I definitely incorporate caffeinated gels into long runs, and it helps a LOT. The mental prep for a long run is great- I definitely use a lot of those tricks. Breaking the run up into smaller segments, listening to podcasts (I usually listen to a podcast but put music on at the end when it’s getting really hard.)
    So many other great links here- I’ll have to come back and read them all.

    1. Caffeinated gels! Who knew?! I am not a fan of gels, but maybe I could do the caffeine ones. I haven’t tried to see if it makes a difference.

  9. Thanks for sharing my blog post, San! <3

  10. Love all of these, as per usual. I am still reading the Time article (I saw it but hadn’t read it) and the one on FLW houses. There is definitely a sub-population of super-FLW fans (I vote we nominate Birchie for that!).

  11. Thank you. I read the article about intuitive eating as it is something I want to learn. Thank you for sharing your finds.
