A lot of new readers (hi guys!!) have found Prayers and Apples through reading my articles on MindBodyGreen – but I just realized today that some of the older crew didn’t know I was over there! (This is what I get for not having Facebook!) From now on, I’ll try to get better about posting notices – but just to catch you up to speed:
MindBodyGreen is a health-based website that encourages holistic, happy living. It’s similar to Prayers and Apples, only minus the spirituality and psychology parts and plus more info on living green. (Ok, that seems like a lot of math – maybe we’re not that similar!) My articles over there are a bit more formal and read more like something you’d see in a newspaper (versus posts on here that feature Justin Timberlake dressed up like tofu!). If you have a second, check out my most recent article: Why You Should Get Active Even When You’re Depressed. (You know I’m always trying to mix some psychology in there!)
Hint: if you skim through one of my earlier pieces, Can Saying a Prayer Really Heal You?, you’ll definitely recognize lots of Prayers and Apples stats ;)
…Ok, so maybe it wasn’t so much of a run as a hike with a couple sprints mixed in… and then a mini-photo shoot break while I freaked out over the alligator… But I still counted it as a workout ;)
Little known fact: I love alligators!! (Just when you thought my life couldn’t get any more random!) I don’t know why – I don’t like alligator cartoons or memorabilia?! – I just LOVE seeing them in person!! I’ve even been to Gatorland – not even kidding :)
In less exciting news: I don’t think you’d be interested in any personal training updates this week. Unless you’re curious about the difference between flat bones and sesamoid bones (doesn’t that sound like a wing flavor?), I think you’d be pretty bored with this chapter!
However, I did just order three books that I know you’d love! One I already talk about all the time – SuperFoods Rx: Fourteen Foods That Will Change Your Life (Steven Pratt, Kathy Matthews). The second one comes highly recommended by Brandi over at Faith, Fitness and Laughter: Made to Crave (Lysa TerKeurst). And the third has been on my wish list for a while: Prescription for Natural Cures (James Balch, Mark Stengler) – 724 pages of holistic healing wisdom!
I’m not too sure when I think I’m going to have the time to read any of these (I also ordered a subscription to Spirituality & Health magazine – ya know, just in case I run out of reading material between my four classes and personal training recertification lol) – but as I get to them, I’ll definitely post highlights!
Hope everyone’s week is off to a great start!
