Blog Awards!

I know you've seen them floating around blogland but I gotta say... it makes me feel so good to get one! To realize that my 'lil ole blog helps others is AMAZING to me and that's what pushes me to go the extra step in my fitness journey!

My friend Kyle, over at Getting Better and Better, recently gave me an award:

As with all awards, there are rules to accepting them. To accept the "Happy 101 award", I need to 1.) acknowledge the person who gave it to me - Kyle, 2.) list ten items that make me happy, and 3.) award it to ten other bloggers.

So keeping with my fitness-journey blog, I'll be listing the ten weight-loss/fitness items that make me happy.

10 Happy Items
(in no particular order)
  1. Anthony - My supporter through all of this!
  2. Poki - My walking buddy that never lets me forget to get outside
  3. My Bodybugg - Keeps me VERY accountable
  4. Powerblocks - Gotta love how heavy I can lift and how little space they take up
  5. Hawaii's weather - Keeps me outside hiking all year round
  6. My personal trainer - Pushes me harder than I can push myself.
  7. Oxygen magazine - So much motivation, exercise routines, and eats
  8. workout dvd's - No time for gym? No problem! This is where it all started.
  9. eggs - I L.O.V.E eggs... scrambled, poached, boiled, any way!
  10. other bloggers - Seriously... you guys make me realize this journey is a struggle for everyone, not just myself. The support, inspiration, and motivation I've received from other bloggers is amazing and I know I couldn't find anything like it any where else.

10 Happy Bloggers

**This is among MANY that I like... it's just hard to pick only ten**
