On Sunday, Ankur and I sat down and set some intentions/goals for the week. (Mostly, I sat down and demanded that he play along so that I had someone holding me accountable.) One of the things we both wanted for this week was to get in a morning workout at least 3 times.
We went to the gym on Tuesday.
And today is #2.
So, as you read this, I am probably crying on an elliptical or attempting to do a plank. In any case, I would love a virtual pat-on-the-back. Because, according to personal experience, positive reinforcement works on adults too. I love words of affirmation. (But not as much as I love physical touch). <—- If you’re wondering
why I’m crazy what I’m talking about, check out this book. You can find out what your ‘love language’ is!
And, as is tradition every Thursday, here is a round-up of a few other things I’m loving this week! Play along in the comments or drop your own posts in the link-up below! <3
All of your comments on yesterday’s post made me feel so happy. You were all so kind and so thoughtful and supportive and you made me want to hug you and squish you all in real life. (Again, probably because I love physical touch oh-so-much!). But it was just another reminder why I love this blogging thing so much. The community you find in the blogosphere is a pretty special one.
2) Cauliflower Rice
This has been a big hit around here. Mainly because it’s a dump and devour recipe. But, one thing I’ve realized lately is that if you just add a LITTLE bit of brown rice (perhaps a cup or so?) to the pan and stir it up, it tastes like the WHOLE things made of rice. So it’s low(er) carb. But tastes like full carb. You’re welcome.
3) Millie Holloman’s Adoption Story on Instagram
Go check out her Instagram page, look at her photos, and read her stories. Make sure you grab some Kleenex. My heart exploded.
4) Game of Thrones Family Map
If you follow me on Snapchat (@eatteachblog), you may have already seen this piece of art. It’s a Game of Thrones family map. For sale. With names, dotted lines, and connections indicating how everyone is related. And, for a few dollars extra, you can get the artist behind the map (my husband dearest) to sit down next to you and ask you questions to make sure you’re really, truly following along. #WinterIsComing
5) Hillbilly Elegy
I know I’ve talked about this on the blog before, but I’m loving this book. According to the NY Times review, it offers a “compassionate, discerning sociological analysis of the white underclass that has helped drive the politics of rebellion, particularly the ascent of Donald J. Trump.”
Questions of the Day:
- What are you currently reading?
- Do you watch Game of Thrones?
- What is one thing you’re loving lately?
