4 New Blogs Thursday

One of the great things about writing a healthy living blog is discovering other blogs that I have never read before. There are so many engaging and inspiring people out there and we all have a different story to tell about our journey to a healthy and happy life.

I couldn't possibly recognize all the amazing blogs that I have stumbled upon but I do want to take a minute and highlight a few. My hope is you will do the same in the comments section so I (and other readers) can discover even more motivational writers.

Here's a little 4 Things Thursday for you my friends:

4 t.v shows that I watch
  1. Gossip Girls
  2. True Blood
  3. Vampire Diaries
  4. Jersey Shore (I can't believe I admitted that on a public blog!)
4 words/phrases I use too much

  1. "At the end of the day..."
  2. "Do you know what I mean?"
  3. "F%$#!"
  4. "Whatever"
4 things I learned from the past

  1. Things aren't as bad as they seem at the time
  2. There's no such thing as perfect
  3. Don't eat Mexican the night before a long run
  4. Don't take yourself too seriously


4 things I did today that made me happy

  1. Did both my scheduled workouts (spinning and 6 Weeks to 6 Pack)
  2. Enjoyed a 1/2 price chai latte from Starbucks
  3. Read more of The Happiness Project
  4. Planned to spend time with The Boyfriend who I haven't seen in a few days

4 blogs I discovered recently that I want you to check out (if you have't already)

  1. The Singing Runner
  2. The Healthy Apron
  3. From Fried Chicken to Tofu
  4. Geek Turned Athlete

That's it for me kids. My stomach is rumbling after that Jillian Michaels' butt kick and Jersey Shore's on soon.

So tell me, what blog(s) have you discovered recently that you would recommend to me and other readers?

  7. I discovered you! But I also am loving Fat Girl Wearing Thin (fatgirlwearingthin.com) - she has a very similar history to me, and knows (and is able to vocalize it MUCH better than I am) some of the things I still struggle with after losing 120 pounds.

  8. I was hesitant to put that I watch Jersey Shore either!! Too funny! Last night "sitch" was SUCH a creeper!
