Good morning and TGIF! I am heading back to the eye doctor this morning to get my glasses adjusted and talk about prescription sunglasses. Then work, then dinner with hubby and friends.
Did you see what UT did this past Saturday? We checkered Neyland for the UT vs Florida game. Sadly, we lost, but doesn’t the stadium look fantastic!
Let’s get started with Friday’s Fabulous Five . . .
Five Must Read Blog Posts
Yoga Playlist: Smooth Energy by Tina – First off, I am super excited to see Tina blogging again. She has rebranded and her blog is mainly yoga focused. I would love to do yoga at home sometimes, but can never find the “right” music. Tina created a great playlist that I will be recreating in Spotify.
How to Interpret Blood Test Results by Anne – I don’t just let my doctors say that things are in the “normal” range anymore. I insist they send me the full results. I usually hit up Google to see what everything means, but Anne has written a fantastic blog post that details some of the more common tests. Do you know your numbers?
5 Tips To Prevent Breast Cancer by Sarah – We all know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Sarah offers five tips to help prevent breast cancer. Performing self breast checks is important and I feel mammograms as equally important. I had my first one at 35 for a baseline and they thought they saw something. As a result, I now have one each year just to be sure.
Guest RD: Eating Mindfully by Kath – Kath has a friend of hers, Lauren, offer 6 simple steps to start eating mindfully. Something I think is hard for all of us since we are always on the go is to slow down and chew, chew, chew. I also love notice what foods you actually love or not. I am a firm believer in NOT eating things you don’t like.
Your Pre-Race Checklist (and an app for it!) by Teri – Love, love, love this idea Teri talks about. Take a list app (she uses Wunderlist) and check a checklist for all the items you need for a race. This may be more important now as it is getting colder (don’t want to forget those gloves).
