Am I the only one who can’t get over the fact that tomorrow will be May 1? I feel like I was just running in long sleeves and full-length tights last week, and now I’m contemplating how badly I need a few new pairs of running shorts. Time flies, I guess!
So, what’s the buzz this week? I’m glad you asked.
- I’m totally pumped about my guest post on Medicinal Marzipan. It makes me feel a little bit famous!
- I like finding out about new blogs with awesome perspectives. Case in point: Already Pretty, an awesome combination of style and body-loving goodness that’s not to be missed.
- How do you define loving yourself?
- I saw Mina Samuels speak at a panel last week, and after I told Nat about it, he bought me a copy of her book. This post makes me wish I could finish my current book faster so that I can finally start running like a girl.
- The New York Times (I mean, it would be weird if I didn’t link there for something) examines what it means to be in recovery from an eating disorder. Personally, I’d put myself in the camp who feels that you’re always in recovery; even though I can proudly say I am healthy these days, I still have a lot of problems with food, and relapsing is one of my biggest fears.
- The Eazy Bandz giveaway is OVER and we have a winner: lucky number 13, which happens to be Jill! I tallied all the entry comments and threw them into a random number generator and then double-checked to make sure I hadn’t overlooked anyone. Hopefully this means no more headbands lost while you’re running, Jill! I’ll send you an email with details about how to claim your goods.
- Finally, since just about every other item in this list seems to be about me, I’ll mention the fact that I would love for you to contribute to Embrace:Me. I am looking for blog posts (original or republished), photos, videos, basically any form of expression you’ve used to celebrate your body positivity. I’ve finally updated the Embrace:Me page so if you’re looking for a little inspiration, all the posts in the series can be found there. And don’t forget that you can also find Embrace:Me on Facebook.
