All good things come in threes – or so you could at least say when it comes to my Good good [food for thought] picks this week. Right in time for my possible short-cut in terms of exercise three sweet ladies decided to share their opinion on the topic. Though all of different aspects so I obviously recommend you to read all of them! And one more post to rethink fitness goals in recovery.
Along with that there’s obviously some good food, advice and enough to make you laugh even on the coldest most boring Sunday – and now I sound like I was trying to sell something to you. I blame sleep deprivation ;). Anyway, let me know your great reads from the week in the comments, too!
