Love Style (plus new Simply Bar winner)

by tinareale on July 20, 2012

**Registration for Best Body Bootcamp ENDS at midnight TONIGHT! Please register on time!**

**NEW Simply Bar Winner! I never heard from the original winner a week ago, so CONGRATS to Tara! You are the new winner!


Now, normally I do a Friday Countdown post where I share 5 links, 4 photos, etc. Well, I came across just TOO many great links this week. I thought I would focus on those for today with a special link love style post featuring TEN of my favorite links from the past week. Enjoy and have a GREAT weekend!

link love

  • I never get sick of Cat’s dry humor. You must read (and laugh out loud over) her post on 10 new ways to burn calories. Plus a delicious sounding banana bread included!
  • With summer I have been all about the shakes and protein drinks. I gotta try Charissa’s Dark Chocolate Protein Shake she shared as part of her July Smoothie Challenge.

  • For another great recipe, give Paige’s Healthier Zucchini Bread a look. High protein. Low sugar. Low fat. Yet with Paige giving it her approval, I know it must be good tasting too.
  • While I don’t personally track calories closely while maintaining weight, I do think it’s a useful thing to do when reaching goals of weight loss or to make sure you’re consuming enough (while training hard or breast feeding, for example).

Like I said – LOTS of great reads around the ‘net this week. Give them a look and let me know of any great posts you either wrote or read that I may have missed! Open-mouthed smile

I LOVE this post. What a great way to get to know other bloggers and read some great blog posts I may have missed. I’ve read some already and some are new to me. I LOVE The post “being a pro triathlete’s wife”. Thanks for sharing all of these great reads.

Agree with Katie, I love these link love posts! Thanks for the reminder on the boot camp… I am seriously considering it. Need to revamp my weights routine, as I’m not pushing myself enough on my own.

3 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table July 20, 2012 at 8:12 am

What a great round up! I didn’t know about Cat’s blog before… she is hilarious!!! Thanks for introducing me. :)

Loved Lindsay’s post. Great link ups!

11 Tamara July 20, 2012 at 11:48 am

I love these kind of posts! I always find a new blogger or two to follow and when I’ve had a busy week and haven’t managed to read all my usual favourites, I’m reminded to go back and do so!
I’ll be spreading the love today, Tina!
