It’s lucky 13 for my link roundups! I have to admit that I really love giving shoutouts to people who are creating really great content in these link love posts, and they help encourage me to stay up on my blog reading, too. I didn’t have as much time as I would have liked to to catch up on my reading (hello, working all sorts of extra hours), but I’m so happy that I had time to read the following posts, because they’re all incredibly helpful. I hope you enjoy them!

Why You Don’t Need to Lose Weight via Bri at Run Lift Yoga – Bri has a great discussion here about why you may be working out more but the scale may not be budging. And, as she aptly puts it, the number you see on your scale doesn’t define who you are as a person.
