It’s already March, and it’s already the first Thursday of the month. Pinch me! (Wait…it’s not St Patty’s day yet…)
As I said in yesterday’s post (head over for a cookie-licious recipe), my NASM fitness personal training certification test is quickly approaching. Like in less than 20 days. Since last month’s “Did You Know..” nutrition link-up, I have yet to post about another nutrition topic as planned and badly needed the time to study today. I got through a whole chapter!
BUT I did remember I had a post go up last week on Lifehack talking about the benefits of walnuts, so I thought I’d include a teaser for today as well as remind you all to join me and the Emilys in the Did You Know link-up tomorrow! (See this post for rules and details!)
(You can grab the handy code above to put in your nutrition post that you link-up!)
I would like to take a moment to remember and lament my photos.
These photos were taken over the last week and included styled photos of my almond delight cookies I was going to post on the blog soon.
Sadly, they disappeared. Right off the memory card. Without a trace. The only photo I have of the almond cookies is on my phone.
Just. not. the. same.
[caution: more dramatic reactions about lost photos coming.]
In an effort to be more transparent with readers (and probably respond to complaints that some bloggers appear perfect), I’ve seen many bloggers posting about how they aren’t perfect. It appears to be the the new cool thing. Or maybe it’s just something I’ve noticed lately.
I, like everyone else, love to see that the person whom I’ve been envious of for the past x amount of time makes mistakes and has issues in his/her life. But how much is too much? Need we even disclose the fact that we are all human and don’t have perfect lives?
I’ve always felt like I share good and bad when blogging, but I certainly don’t share every hairy detail.
I will tell you that I’m going through depressing times (did you see any of my posts over the summer of 2013 when I didn’t have a job? or when I hurt my back a couple of years ago? or the ones in November talking about trying to find a therapist? or one of the many times I’ve brought up my anxiety?), but I don’t share every single bad thought going through my head. It would freak you out.
Plus sometimes it’s better to just keep things to yourself.
