Lovin’ It Saturday

by tinareale on March 10, 2012

Since you all seemed to enjoy last week’s link/blog/motivation love post, I figured I would give it another go. Enjoy just a few of the things I enjoyed reading last week, while I conquer my first 18 miler and then head to lunch with my family. << thanks for the prayers and support by the way

Have a very happy weekend!

Motivation for your Morning

Posts I Loved This Week

Lindsey from Cardio Pizza talks all about how workouts don’t have to be a certain style or intensity to “count”. Give yourself credit for all your activity!

Get rid of the all or nothing mindset with helpful tips from Nicole!

So proud of Janice for getting a killer PR and sub 2:00 half marathon this past week! And of Samantha for hitting a 42 minute PR on her 3rd marathon!

Kill your arms and get tank top ready with Lindsay’s Tuesday Trainer workout from this week!

Lindsay has made me drool with this healthy pizza combo.

Felice shared some tips for awesome long runs. Something I need since as this post publishes, I’m hopefully out rocking and not loathing my first 18 mile run

This Ultra Beginners Fitness Guide by Emmie is a great resource.

Homemade pumpkin spice bagels. Thank you, Kelly for sparking my pumpkin cravings again!

Can’t make it to the gym? Try out some of these 50 bodyweight exercises you can do anywhere! I suggest picking 10 to do in a circuit format for a 10 minute workout. Do it sporadically through the day to add up! NO EXCUSES! You could also check out this travel workout from Annette or this 100 At Home Workout from Tamara (two AWESOME bloggers).

Michelle has got it going on in the kitchen. I drool over every meal she had in this post!

Blogs I’m Loving

I literally just found Katrina’s blog this week after she joined bootcamp. I’m already head over heels in love with it. Her post about the no makeup look is especially fantastic – funny, but thought provoking, all in one!


Madeline is awesome! She is rocking some killer post-baby progress on the fitness front, kicking butt at the bootcamp, has insanely good recipes….and a cutie patootie little girl. Check. Her. Out!


There you have it, folks! Enjoy some good reads and have a FANTASTIC weekend! Smile

Your Turn – What are you up to this weekend?

18 miles?!?! Gosh I hope I can hang with you at the race. You can leave me behind! I’ve got 12 today.

Absolutely loving this post, a great way to catch up on all the amazing posts I’ve missed out on during my week (seriously, the blogosphere has some insanely talented and inspiring people, thanks for sharing!).

Good luck with your long run, I’m sure you’ll rock it ;)

There are some great blogs out there that I have been missing out on! Thanks for the links!

5 Lee March 10, 2012 at 8:48 am

I love when you highlight new blogs that I haven’t read before. Feed my addiction!

Fontaines is delicious, by the way. It’s one of my favorites that I had actually forgotten about. If you like mussels, they have really good ones (I like the red sauce, but they have red or white.) The tuna steak is also very good. Everything is very good.

Good luck on your run! I hope you enjoy this weather we’re having too! I’m definitely going to work out with my boys, get organized and enjoy my family. I think it’s going to be a great weekend!

7 Caroline @ After Dinner Dance March 10, 2012 at 9:31 am

I’m doing a beginner’s yoga workshop – I’m excited! Hope your long run goes well!
