Did I say I was going to share these links just a few days after my previous post? Yes. Did I have every intention to? Also yes. Life? Decided to knock me out of commission for a full week [read: what I thought was just a little cold and optimistically told my doctor would be over on Wednesday already … was so very much not]. My head was mush so neither blog reading nor blogging happened. So once again: sorry! I’m still not feeling 100 % but went back to work today so figured I should definitely make my promise to you come true, too. As always, I’d be happy for you to share links to any great posts you happened upon lately as – I’m sure you can guess – I definitely missed out on many of them. Truly catching up with blog world happenings when you’ve been gone for more than a day or two seems impossible which leads right to the first post lined up here …

It’s nice to see even the major health/fitness websites these days promote looking past your weight to see how healthy you are. Not agreeing with the mindful eating point here, though [it’s not a hunger and fullness “diet” and processed foods need not be avoided at all costs.]

Happiness-inducing today (cheating: they’re from the past few days): a snowy but sunny walk with my mum yesterday, her stopping by to bring me wakame salad for the first time ever when I was sick.
