Some time ago, I promised to write up a quick post on the fitness blogs that I like. As I mentioned, my Google reader is filling up more with health and exercise blogs and less with style blogs. I guess this is me realizing that while I will never be especially stylish, there’s at least an outside chance that I can be fit.
I eat to be healthy, I workout to be healthy, and I have a super low tolerance for orthorexia. So I tend to look for blogs that are written by people who aren’t afraid to admit that they drink occasionally or maybe eat pork rinds. I also want blogs that are informative, inspiring, and compellingly written. And written by women. Here’s my short list:
Happy Fit Mama: I’ve mentioned Angela here before. She really knows her way around exercise physiology, and is worth checking out. I have made some modifications/additions to my workout routines based on her posts, and they were all for the better.
Eat, Drink and be Meiri: Honestly, Rose is pretty intense. Half the time, I’m not even sure that the blog is in English because I don’t totally understand all her exercises. That said, she is super inspiring. She works out hard and lets us know that it’s not all rainbows and confetti. I’d totally do pull-ups with her if I ever met her.
Eat, Drink, and Run: When people talk about someone being a natural runner, Shelby is who they are talking about. She makes it seem easy. Her alcohol reviews are also fun. But it was this very well-written post that got her added to my Google reader.
Rose Runner: Smart, fast, inspiring. What more do you need? I especially like that she posts her opinion openly. It makes her blog really fun to read.
Ready, Set, Feast: Kelsey has great energy, and she is entertaining and fun to interact with on-line. (Also, she hosts killer giveaways, which are always fun.) I’m looking forward to seeing how her marathon goes.
I hope you enjoy these ladies as much as I do!
