1. I found Ragen Chastain’s Weight and Healthcare newsletter from Virginia Sole-Smith and it’s been super educational. I liked this recent one about “The Trouble With Promoting ‘Joyful’ or ‘Enjoyable’ Movement.” In a nutshell:

I can’t tell you the number of times someone’s face completely lights up when I say “Look, it’s ok to pick something you hate the least, and do the bare minimum you need to do for the benefit you want to get.”

I don’t always love lifting! But I do love being strong. There’s a lot to be said for Ragen’s approach.


2. “Are you being kidnapped or is this just a Midwest goodbye?”
