If you too wonder what goes on in the heads of those gym goers who spend half their time staring at the wall, this one’s for you – 25 More Rules of Conquering the Gym.
Paleo, vegan, whatever. Read this please: The Terrible Tragedy of the Healthy Eater.

Mara Glatzel always gets it right about self love. Always. Check out Learning To Love Your Life As It Is.
Leo Babauta also has a unique talent for always striking a chord with me. He recently wrote a post about finding your motivation and passion that is simple and spot on.
As for eats, this week I made some more lentil sloppy joes from Chocolate Covered Katie and am still eating leftovers from this healthy crock pot General Tso’s chicken recipe. Lindsay at Running With Tongs has been posting some great vegetarian and raw recipes that I can’t wait to try.
Also, in case you were interested, the recipes for the granola I overindulged on can be found here: Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Granola and Banana Nutella Granola. I thought both came out pretty tasty – the oatmeal raisin was the clear winner, though.
