Along with Marie's MUST READ blog (click on the link above), here are some other great blogs deserving of such an award:
http://www.rmaxinternational.com/flowcoach/ - I loved Body Flow the very first time I did it. It was the very first time that "playtime" was introduced into my exercise as an adult. The experience of laughing through an entire workout (burning loads of calories and sweating like it's raining) because I lacked balance and coordination made me go back for more. Even the instructor fell. I felt like a kid again! It was fun, tough and relaxing all at the same time.
Because of my nail fettish, I have five nail blogs that I visit pretty much on a daily basis. They are the perfect escape for me and my girly indulgence.
The fifth one is actually a general beauty blog, but she's become a fast friend through blogging and her nail tutorials rock my socks!
A VERY large part of my blog is about health. I am continually on a quest to be healthier today than I was yesterday. Most of my success has been driven by two simple things: The Master Cleanse and incorporating raw food into my diet. Making sure that I'm not only getting as much bang for my nutrient buck with raw food, but also absorbing as much as I can with regular cleansing have been the keys to the increase of energy to WANT to exercise and also to overcome sickness. It just IS my life now and I enjoy reading about how it becomes other's lives as well. While weightloss is certainly a lovely bi-product, this lifestyle is really more focused on health and happiness. Here are a few blogs that certainly deserve awards!
For me, the biggest Fun and Mental Changes have come with the realization that one should not take themselves too seriously, no one gets out of here alive. Life is meant to be fun, it was meant to be filled with joy and to be lived. Bad things do happen and there are things that are out of our control, but if we are all too busy being sick, angry and miserable, me miss what life was meant to be (even the bad stuff has a way of being good). I hope that every day I continue to discover that it's always playtime and that I am connected to something greater and higher than myself. Here's a couple of blogs that help:
http://scrapimenta.blogspot.com/ - yep, this is a scrapbook blog, and a great one at that! Scrapbooking is an outlet that gets my creative juices flowing and reminds me of what is important in my life. Scrapbooking brings gratitude!
http://bloggerinastrangeland.com/ - blog about one person's spirituality in life. He talks about my very favorite subject... GOD!
http://chalenejohnson.blogspot.com/ - this is the creator of Turbo Jam. She is also a spiritual lady who perpetuated playtime for me instead of working out. She also has an amazing spirit that shines through her blog and is so deserving of so many awards.
So far, these are my list of favorites. I read blogs every day, so I'm positive that there will surely be more to come. Thank you again Marie... this award means a lot! :)
