Good good links #163

Hello there!

Unlike previous weeks Sunday didn’t come quite as out of the blue for me. Much to my surprise, I actually have more links to share than I expected. The week didn’t go as planned – okay, I didn’t really plan for it to go any certain way other than ‘normal’ [whatever that means] – but life threw me several curveballs. Which led to less time to read blogs but – long story short –  here they are: some of my favourites from the past week. I’d be happy to hear your thoughts on any of them if you’ve read them before already or afterwards.

Happy Sunday!

    Kylie’s recent post about exercise was so, so good. I really related to the notion of “not really having a plan or regimented way” of stopping, or being able to explain how it happened… and I think this is the case with all sorts of recovery. It isn’t “by the book,” it just.. happens… when you are ready. Georgie’s list for non-food related trips is also a really good reminder for us all not to make food the centre of our lives. Thanks for all these!!

      What you said about everything in recovery ‘just happening’ is so true and what can make it so hard to figure out.
      I found Georgie’s post to work well with yours – all the little ways we can treat ourselves well just because.

    • Miss Polkadot says:

      Kylie just has a way of getting the message across and – like she said – recipe-style leaving it up to every single reader what to make from it.
      I hope you’ll have a wonderful week, too!
