I noticed something today as I was adding my blog, Cirklasphere, to numerous blog directories… I noticed that I was putting my blog under the category of Alternative Health and I really haven’t written about health much at all! My website, Cirkla, is about alternative health but I have not written about health in my own blog.

When I thought about it, I realized that I really have been neglecting my health lately. In an effort to build my new business and to make a name for myself on the internet, I have really stopped taking good care of my body.

Yesterday, a girl at work had cooked up a big bowl of veggies and was eating them and I was practically drooling over them. So I went home and cooked myself a veggie stir-fry (since I had the house to myself anyways) and it felt great.

So tonight I want to introduce you to some of the wonderful bloggers that I met throughout this evening while focusing on health. One blogger referred to this sort of thing as “Link Soup” and I would love to give credit but have no idea how to find that site again. Fortunately, I have bookmarked a majority of the sites that I found on my new toy, Diigo.

So here goes… my edition of “Healthy Link Soup” —

  • First, I came across Liz Turtle and ahhh! I found the “Link Soup” reference! How delightful…Liz is working on losing weight through the Weight Watchers program and she is documenting it (bravely) on her website, TurtleProgress.com. She even has a little chart of her progress, which is great for us people who love to watch people (what are those called again?)So I hooked up with Liz on Facebook and Twitter.  It is really smart to display your social profiles on your blog! I love finding new people to befriend!
  • Then I somehow (?) came across this video called “The Gratitude Dance“, posted on jungleoflife.com – super fun! Everyone should dance now and again, and it is a great way to lose some weight while you are being grateful!
  • Next, I found this great blog where Sagan is challenging herself (and the rest of the world to the 100 Reps Challenge. Each day in December, Sagan is posting a couple of exercises to do 100 times. Check out her site to get the gist of it. I’m in, Baby! Sagan makes me WANT to exercise.

    Oh, and one last thing… I was thinking about starting some sort of healthy eating routine and then I said to myself, “Oh, with the holidays and all…” but then I realized that we are talking ONE day of Thanksgiving (done) and ONE day of Christmas. The rest is just a party here, a cookie there… no big deal! So I am going to start doing something. I have already started by eating a wonderful stir fry last night and by eating veggies for lunch today. Yeah, me!
