Five: A Random Blog Survey

A couple weeks ago, my friend Julie posted a “five” themed blog survey on her site and I thought it would be fun to mix it up today and play along with a similar variation. I’d love if you guys did the same – either in the comments or on your own blogs! Thanks to Julie for the idea – and for the graphic below. :)

Five Best Health Tips

  1. Get enough sleep

  3. Add veggies to meals for added volume
  4. Make fitness fun (see also: How to Love Exercise (or at least not hate it))
  5. Put no foods off limits (you’ll want them more!) – but only indulge when it’s worth it – not just because something is there/you’re bored/stressed/whatever (see also: Because Being Healthy Means Not ALWAYS Being Healthy)

Five Things I Wear (Almost) Every Day

  • The greatest slippers ever
  • My wedding and engagement rings :)
