Monday Afternoon Links ~ 4.16.12

Here are the links that have my mind and body buzzing this week:

5 Places to Find Cute, Cheap Workout Clothes
Sure, Lululemon is nice for the occasional splurge, but for the rest of us - these places kick butt.  I'd also recommend checking out Amazon - they have tons of stuff and many items qualify for Prime, if you have it.

Staying healthy while away from the routine of the day-to-day can be tough, but these tips seem like really great suggestions.

5 Tips for Running with the Mind of Meditation
Applying mindfulness techniques to an intense cardio workout - such an amazing idea!  Love this.

50 Things to Love About Life That Are Free
Tiny Buddha is one of my favorite go-to sites for inspiration.  Whether or not you practice Buddhism (I personally consider myself to be a Christian who draws additional inspiration from Buddhist thoughts and ideas), these posts are enlightening, personal, and most importantly, completely inspiring.

Alcohol 'Sharpens Men's Minds' Claim Scientists
The benefits of (moderate) beer drinking continue!

A very honest and interesting look into the negative effects that Facebook and other venues like it can have on our self esteem and morale.

Leaning Out for Summer
Some excellent general tips on how to get your body and mind in tip-top shape for the warmer months.

Low-Fat Diet and Exercise Trump Food Fads and Supplements for Weight Loss: Study
And there you have it, folks.  If we want to lose weight, we gotta do it the old-fashioned way.

No Act of Kindness is Too Small
Another excellent Tiny Buddha post.

Zumba:  What to Expect at Your First Class
A neat primer on zumba classes.  Since my experience with zumba is solely based on the xbox game, this was very helpful.  Does anyone want to go to an actual class with me?
