fascinating friday links

I apologize for this coming to you a wee bit later than usual, but I was speaking at a college process meeting for junior (11th grade) parents last night until about 8:15. Then when I came home, all I wanted to do was eat dinner and go to sleep. In reality though, I needed to work on an essay.

Anyway, I’ll just give y’all the links that I’ve been loving this week. There are some really cool articles in the health and fitness section especially!

  1. I love brussels sprouts as well and that recipe looks delicious! This weekend I will be getting in plenty of reading and relaxing 😀 and studying because exams are fast approaching!

  2. I love this post and look forward to it every week! I really enjoyed “I don’t give a damn” “exercise is not for calorie burning” “five things to add to your life” and that peppery cheese bread!!! Yum!
    Have a great weekend Alison!

  3. So many good reads…the “Bulk story” really hit home for me. I’ve always tried to avoid getting any form of bulky muscle but back when I was riding it kind of came with the sport. And yesss to “I don’t give a damn”. Davida’s post on success/failure is just so incredible. I notice that sort of thing way too much these days. We need to get every.one to read that 😉
