Sunday again?! I feel like the weeks have been going by very quickly lately. I’ve been taking time to get things done this holiday weekend, some blog things, and trying to get in some final preparations for BlogFest, which is a week and a half away. So excited! And I’m excited because tomorrow is my blogiversary! I’m working on putting together a giveaway, so definitely come back for that! And, part of my weekend has involved catching up on my reading, which is where I found the following posts that I really loved.

My Favorite Body Positive Podcasts by Jen at Bagels to Broccoli (discovered via Bri’s Friday Favourites post) – I’m so excited to check out these podcasts that Jen shared. You’ll notice that I never talk about dieting on my blog for a reason–I’m a firm believer that it’s more important to eat good foods (with unhealthy foods in moderation) and get exercise than it is to worry about a number on a scale. So, these podcasts seem like they’ll be right up my alley!
