Feel Good Friday

2012 is MY year, but I don’t mind sharing it with you! 

This year I’m actively concentrating on improving myself – physically, creatively, mentally and socially.  I’m taking big challenges (such as 12WBT), embarking on my latest 101 Things in 1001 Days list, and doing whatever I can to set healthy habits to build upon.

I’m a couple of months in, and feeling GOOD.

Each Friday I’ll be bringing you some of the best advice that I’ve discovered on the web.  It’s going to cover everything from food & fitness to positive thinking and anything else that will bring a smile to your face.  I hope you enjoy this new weekly feature.


From A to Zucchini: how to properly store produce.  I learned some excellent tips here, and the article comes with a handy printable chart!

It’s not too late to change your habits!  Here’s how to start.

This article has convinced me to stop buying “baby” carrots.  I had no idea!

Sarah wrote an excellent post about friendships, and how to know when your relationships have become bad for you.  This should be required reading for anybody who feels like they have to hold back.

Sugar-free me:  Danielle wrote this excellent post about cutting excess sugar from her diet, and the benefits she’s noticed.  Inspiring!

Seven tips for getting yourself to bed on time.

What’s your dietry low hanging fruit?  These are eating habits that are easy to change.

Things to worry about: a letter from F Scott Fitzgerald to his 11 year old daughter Scottie.

Expand your praisecabulary: 50 ways to say “You’re AWESOME”

The great muffin makeover: how to build “better for you” muffins


The Seil bag is still a prototype, but what a great idea!  A wireless controller on your bike’s handlebars lets vehicles know when you’re turning or stopping.  As a driver who shares my lane with cyclists each morning, I think it’s a great idea.   (via A Cup of Jo)


Have you read something this week that belongs on my list?  Have you written something about health, happiness or good habits?  I’d love to hear from you!

Have a great weekend x

I believe I have mentioned this blog to you before, but 101cookbooks.com by Heidi Swanson. Vegetarian and a focus on whole foods and grains. Her blog frequently has recipes on that are fairly simple to construct, and delicious. 

And in keeping with some of your other things: http://www.thekitchn.com/video-cook-a-we-163999 a video on The Kitchn about prepping a week’s worth of veggies ahead (cleaning, lots of roasting and some boiling etc.), so they’re ready to use and you’re more likely to use them! Something I should start doing too. It cuts down on the time the rest of the meals will take during the week, and doesn’t really take a huge amount of time to do in and of itself.

Both great resources, thank you!  I’ll add them to my next Feel good Friday post.

PS. I thought of you at Gap today when I saw that stripey t-shirt you like.  It’s only in navy/white, but I’m happy to grab it for you if you want! x
