5 Facts Friday- Blog Edition

Posted on: July 30, 2011

I am a new blogger and a relatively new blog reader.  I really didn’t know they existed.  Aside from Facebook and, I don’t venture much around the web.  Celebrity gossip makes my day 🙂

When I started working out in January, I started Googling to find some work out ideas.  From that point on, I have found many blogs that I have fallen in love with.  I am sure this will have to be done on more than one Friday.  There are quite a few blogs that I absolutely love.  I am going to start with the five blogs I first started reading.

*The Fitnessista– This was the very first blog I ever found.  I love Gina’s page.  The workouts are what got my attention and I have followed ever since.  I love Gina’s realness and the workouts she puts together are awesome!!  Holla at the winter/summer shape-ups!!  I have used the Winter Shape Up 2011 and the Summer Shape Up 2011 and have seen amazing results.  In all honesty, I owe a lot of my weight loss to her workouts.

*Peanut Butter Fingers– I found Julie through Fitnessista.  I was on Fitnessista’s blog roll and it was the name that intrigued me to click the link.  Peanut Butter Fingers?!?!  What?!?!  I love peanut butter.   I loved it from the start.  I love how down to earth Julie is.  I feel like we could meet up and talk for hours even though I don’t even know her.  Also, how stinkin’ cute is Sadie?

*Sweet Tooth Sweet Life– You are going to notice a pattern here….I found Courtney from Peanut Butter Fingers site!!  I love the recipes this girl whips out.  I have made a couple myself.  Orange soda cupcakes anyone?  Even though I call soda “pop.”  I’ll let that slide since they were so GOOD!!

*Running Off The Reeses– One word: hilarious!!  I also found Cely through Peanut Butter Fingers.  You absolutely have to go to her sight.  I literally laugh out loud when I read her posts.  EVERY SINGLE TIME!!  She recently went to Alaska and I am green with vacation envy.  Alaska is one of the places I want to go.

*Carrots N Cake– By this point, you already know where I found Tina- Peanut Butter Fingers!!  😉  I love Tina’s day-to-day adventures.  I also love the complete honesty like with her colitis diagnosis.    Since I am a blogger baby, I love her page that is dedicated just to blogging tips. 

All of these blogs as well as some more that will be mentioned at a later time, have completely inspired me.  Each one is so unique.  It feels awesome to be a part of such a great community.

Question of the night:

What is one of your favorite blogs?
