Good good links #21

Happy Sunday!

Coming off age – read: turning 21 [weeks] – requires some lasting and grown-up change, don’t you agree? This week happens to mark that very date for my link loving. I’d pondered creating a header for those link collection posts for a while already and this special occasion seemed like a great day to introduce it. The reason is that while by now all of you know my fondness of flowers I’ve found I prefer a more streamlined appearance of these kind of posts rather than changing pictures. That way you immediately know what to expect from any post and it also lets all of these fabulous posts from the week shine more. Because that’s what my Good good links are all about so without further ado: here are some of my favourites from the week.

    Thank you for posting those links about weight. I am in recovery right now and they really bought in insight. I’ve had a rough day and they just make me smile.

    My first full week back was a challenge at first, but I’m getting back into the daily groove!

    I hope you’re having an amazing day! ❤

      I’m glad to hear the posts helped you a little. Recovery and weight gain can be tough so inspiring and humorous posts like these are a great reminder to keep going – and smiling. Feel free to mail me if you want to chat on those rough days!
      Getting back into the groove was a little tough for me, too, but I figure it’ll get easier by the day 🙂 .
      I hope your Sunday’s going well!

    Great links as always! I like that take on IE…very important point made there as it applies to people who have damaged their metabolisms. And Cait’s battle with body checking…I can definitely relate to that! Luckily, things have changed in that realm of my life and I have been much more accepting of where my body is and what changes have come over the last year.

    Those chickpeas! Holy YUM! And that bok choy sounds amazing! I always forget just how much I like bok choy until I have some!

    I stumbled over this article today from a friend’s Facebook page: LOVE IT!! 😀
