Happy T-B-J Tuesday! Here are 3 healthy living Tips, 2 Book recommendations (one self-improvement and one fun), and 1 Journal prompt to ponder this week! 

T: 3 Healthy Living Tips 

☀️ Try this thought reframe when you're full but there is still food left on your plate: I can have delicious food whenever I want, so I don't need to eat too uncomfortably full now 

☀️Instead of: I shouldn't eat that, I don't need it > Let’s Try: Food is not just for fuel. I am allowed to enjoy food. I will let myself enjoy the food I want. 

☀️A helpful response if someone comments on your food/weight: You don’t have to agree with me not dieting, but I expect you to respect my choices.

B: 2 Book Recommendations (one self-improvement and one fun)

📚For Self Improvement (on regulating emotions without food): Burnout by Emily and Amelia Nagoski

This book. THIS BOOK. I am a chronic over-stressor, and this book was gifted to me (thank you people-pleasing, over-committing, and unable to say no 😭 *working on it*). It is packed with information about why you feel the way you feel when stressed, but it also gives you tangible solutions on what to do about it. Look no further if you struggle with stress. This is your next read!

📚For Fun (Thriller): Dark Places by Gillian Flynn 

A thriller told from multiple perspectives is my FAVORITE. My husband and I listened to this as an audiobook on a 15-hour road trip, and let me tell you… The road trip FLEW by. We were both so hooked! Not to mention, the plot twist at the end was 🤯

Quick Synopsis (from Amazon): Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in “The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas.” As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her. The Kill Club is a macabre secret society obsessed with notorious crimes. When they locate Libby and pump her for details, proof they hope may free Ben, Libby hatches a plan to profit off her tragic history. For a fee, she'll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club…and maybe she'll admit her testimony wasn't so solid after all.

As Libby's search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the narrative flashes back to January 2, 1985. The events of that day are relayed through the eyes of Libby's doomed family members, including Ben, a loner whose rage over his shiftless father and their failing farm has driven him into a disturbing friendship with the new girl in town. Piece by piece, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started…on the run from a killer.
