But I'm going to hold off. For two reasons:
#1) I didn't go for my "time away" this weekend to write, which means I have no brain and can't find time after I put my kids to bed to do anything but (possibly) do the dishes and (hopefully) take a shower. Tonight literally my to-do list was: make one phone call, do the dishes, collapse on our air mattress with the laptop and watch the Biggest Loser. Sleep.
#2) This Marie Claire article has me REELING.
I want to hear your thoughts on it. Go read it first.
Then let's talk.
I come from a place of having very disordered eating in the past. Every unhealthy eating or exercise habit under the sun, I've attempted. And only in the past year or so, I've felt some real healing in my relationship with food and exercise - a sweet balance where I care and love nutrition and the wellness that comes from a body that grows healthier by the day, but an openhandedness when it comes to perfection: since being fit or being ultimately healthy is no longer my idol. A lot of that perspective, I feel like, has been aided by reading food blogs. Healthy food blogs. To see healthy women, eating, living, exercising, and enjoying cookies.
But now I'm intrigued.
What do you think?
Do you read "the big six"?
Do you feel discouraged or encouraged?
