Hey guys and happy Monday!
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Mine was spent having dinner with friends, cuddling with the man-friend under a warm blanket watching this and that (both of which we really liked), and spending most of the day Saturday at my parents house…indulging in comfort food, cable television, and some good laughs!
Just in case you’ve ever wondered where I get my sense of humor! 😉
After leaving my parents house on Saturday night, the man-friend and I got back and I was BEYOND starving. In lieu of abusing me with citrus fruit, the man-friend set to work on a chicken fried rice dish, but as good as that sounds NOW, I just wasn’t feeling salty and savory. So I pulled out a near-empty peanut butter jar
I’d hidden in the back of his pantry I found in his pantry, threw in a cold roasted sweet potato, some Greek yogurt, and fig jam and called it dinner. It was exactly what I wanted and well, exactly what Jay Jay wanted too!
Sharing is caring!
Which brings me to the point of this post: I’ve stumbled over some really great things on the interwebs lately and since my weekend can pretty much be summed up in two paragraphs, instead of a recap post, I thought I’d share some of my favorite links!
Links that got me thinking:

Since this is my first holiday season with intuitive eating and I’ve still be struggling some with bingeing, I definitely wanted some support/motivation over the next month and what better way to hold myself accountable AND possibly win some cool prizes?!
