First, it’s Cate and menstruation in her 50s. Her post about it almost always makes the top 10 list. This month it’s the most read post.
Second is a seasonal favorite. First published six years ago it almost always hits the top ten in September. That’s Scorn and Fetishization of Food: Gender Norms, Bacon (mmm… bacon), and Pumpkin Spice Lattes (like, yum!)
Third, it’s Marjorie’s older post on keeping fit while healing from hysterectomy.
Fourth is Sam’s post on checking in one week after knee replacement.
Fifth, Catherine looks at more misleading science and health reporting, these stories and her analysis look at balance and morality risk. Hot tip–the truth is more complicated that than the headlines make it appear.
This was also popular in September and I approve. Horns improve everything.
Sixth is Catherine’s helpful post about yoga poses she can’t do and what she does instead.
Seventh, Amanda-Lynn blogged about gender, work, and finding progress where we can. I think that especially in September that’s theme to which many of us relate.
Eighth, Sam’s post about what three weeks after knee replacement surgery looks like, including a photo of her knee without staples.
Ninth, Tracy’s older post about the many shapes athletes come in.
Tenth, Sam’s older post about women, aging, and the cost of caring about your looks.
