Fabulous, Dahling!


Thanks to PTG who nominated me for the Your Blog Is FABULOUS award. This post is going to be a short one because I'm getting ready to head out of town for the holidays. Don't worry... I'll be posting less, but I will be posting over the next few weeks. I think I'd go crazy without my blog support. So, who do I want to pass this award onto (and mainly give shout outs to)?
1) Kelly over at Choosing Losing: Her motto pretty much sums up what this journey is all about. She's my Miz Fit match buddy, and even though we've both been slacking in the whole communication update department (I blame finals.... I think K does too!), we've been reading each other's blogs and keeping tabs on the other. I'm hoping that now that we have a few weeks, we'll get our emails back in order :)

2) Angie over at Angie Eats Peace: I found Angie's blog through another fitness board that I used to frequent. I love to read her blog about her running, her adventures with her family, and her struggles to eat vegan in a omnivorous world. She makes me wish I lived closer to a Trader Joe's with all her yummy food posts!

3) KK at Running Through Life: The more and more I read her blog, I realize that we both have similar time constraints on our fitness/blogging/me time due to work. I love all the little tidbits that KK's been sharing with us lately by putting up links to fun workouts and advice. Hopefully you'll get some me time over the next few weeks!

4) Jason at Recast in Iron: Jason and I are coworkers, and I was happy to see that he found my blog and has freely given his advice on my running goals/training. It's been really helpful! He is such an inspiration to those of us who are still pushing through our weight loss/fitness goals. I figure if he can train for an Ironman, I.... er, I guess I could too, but I don't think I'm into self-inflicted torture :)

5) RooBabs at Work Those Lower Body Curves: Little does RooBabs know, but I keep her "I'm a Runner" bracelet that she sent me in my desk drawer. It's a little reminder to myself that as I'm pushing through a day of writing and research, I need to take some time for myself and go out and enjoy the day with a little bit of running. Because after all.... I AM a runner :)

Love that new photo of you.

Gosh you look amazing! xx

RooBabs said...

You are so sweet!! I'm glad you are still getting motivation from the bracelet. The Hubs still cracks "I am a runner" jokes, and if I start to slack he says, "I don't know, you might not be a runner". He's such a booger sometimes!

Thank you for the award- I am very flattered. I am so glad that you put up with my miles long comments on your Biggest Loesrs posts. You're the best!!

And I hope you have a wonderful holiday with no students. = )

Hey, I tagged you to do a meme if you have time.

Thanks! I feel honored!

I am glad I found your blog. I appreciate your honesty and talking about the true struggles with weight loss. It is nice to hear about it from someone who does it the healthy way, without fad diets or pills.

Awwww! Thank you! I'm sorry we are so bad with the writing too... I still haven't completely covered form finals (I feel like I'm running on fumes still). I do read all your blog posts though! Maybe we should do a phone call or something? Sometimes I just don't feel like sitting at a computer after a long day of sitting at a computer... know what I mean?

Thanks for the shout out! I need to create a blogroll in wordpress to share all the fab people I've met via the WWW. Oh! And! ProBlogger has a "Biggest Loser Blogger" position advertised before last season. You should look for it and apply if they advertise it again- your write-ups are fabulous!

Take care and have fun :)

Well thanks Kiki!!!

You should be awarded something for staying true to your weight loss goals. Oh wait, you have..you lost all that weight.

Congrats and Happy Holidays!!
