CinnaChip bread from Great Harvest is one of my favorite gluten-free treats. So tasty. I bought a loaf yesterday, and weâ€™ve already polished off half.
Itâ€™s excellent for French toast! But pretty delicious just with butter, too.
The salad-a-day thing has been going well, too. Itâ€™s nice to eat a salad in between all those slices of CinnaChip.
The always-hysterical blogger Allie Brosh from Hyperbole and a Half published her first book! I am requesting this book as a stocking stuffer (hint, hint â€“ Husband). If youâ€™re a fan of her blog, you may remember she took a loooong hiatus to deal with her depression and (I guess?) write this book, so Iâ€™m very curious to read it. Itâ€™s received rave reviews!
Henry is ob-sessed with these Melissa and Doug Wooden Animal Magnets. Itâ€™s so fun to watch him take them from the box, identify the animal (I think he knows about half), make the noise, and slap it on the fridge. I especially like it when he squeals, â€œHORSEY NEIGGGGGGH!â€ Too cute.
My blog friends ran some incredible races this past weekend! I have to do a plug of their race recaps because â€“ man â€“ these ladies did awesome. Theodora from Losing Weight in the City ran the New York City marathon in 3:56:24.
Meghann ran Ironman Florida in 13:05:22 (AKA awesomely fast!). I followed her progress all day long on Saturday â€“ donâ€™t you love races that have online athlete tracking?! I couldnâ€™t believe how fast and evenly paced she completed the event. Meghann really helped me a lot through my own training, and I was just so-so-so happy to see her (and her siblings Kelly and Ben) do well!
And my favorite redhead Monician finished the New York City marathon as well; Monica ran it in 3:41:23. Killer, right?!
I wish I could get faster just by reading race recaps by fast friends. 🙂
And last, but not least, hereâ€™s a great article to read if you ever feel like an imposter at workâ€¦ Do Women Everywhere Suck At Their Jobs?
â€œResearchers find that impostorism is most often found among extremely talented and capable individuals, not people who are true impostors.â€ Those plagued by insecurity are paradoxically more likely to be high-achieving. Their doubt drives them to push themselves harderâ€”and, conversely, their perfectionism makes them belittle themselves for doing entirely competent work. The more expertise you acquire, the more you feel like you have to learn.
