Friday Favs - Health and Fitness Blogs

Happy Friday! How's your week been? I have to say I'm not a big fan of this whole daylight saving time/pitch black at 5 o'clock thing. On the other hand, I did manage to actually wake up in time to do morning workouts every day this week, so maybe it isn't all bad.
But I'm still going to plead time-change related exhaustion as an excuse for just popping in with another brief Friday Favs post. 

I love reading blogs and am always on the lookout for great new sites to follow. If you love health and fitness blogs too, (and I hope you do, because otherwise you wouldn't be reading this. unless you're my mom. hi mom!) here's a few of my favorites to check out.

The Lean Green Bean

Lindsay is a Registered Dietitian, so you know she knows her stuff and that her recipes don't just look good but are good for you too. Her blog is full of beautifully photographed, delicious recipes (I've made her black bean burgers and Greek yogurt chicken and they were both really good!) as well as great workouts and nutrition tips. What really sets Lindsay apart to me, though, is how much she does to build the whole healthy living community. She has a great weekly meal prep series where she features meal preps from contributors (including yours truly) and has an awesome Foodie Penpal program I am joining for the first time this month.

Run Eat Repeat

Monica is a serious runner. Since starting her blog to document training for her first marathon, she has run way more races than I can comprehend. I, on the other hand, am a terrible runner and just completed my first 5K. So you wouldn't think there would be a lot about Monica's blog that I would relate to. But in addition to running tips that are useful for all levels, Monica writes with so much humor and personality that I love reading all her posts, no matter what the subject. Seriously, this is probably the only fitness blog that routinely makes me LOL. Which can be awkward at times if I'm on the metro or at the office... 

Fit Bottomed Girls

Fit Bottomed Girls, along with its sister sites Fit Bottomed Eats and Fit Bottomed Mamas provides a TON of great content and a great variety of health and fitness content. I'm talking recipes, exercise tips, fitness related news, thought provoking opinion pieces, and really awesomely honest reviews. I also just really love the attitude with which they approach fitness, with humor and a really fun energy and the mantra that "fit bottoms come in all shapes and sizes."

Gina's blog features "healthy dishes that don't sacrifice any of the flavor that can be found in their full-fat origins" and she focuses on making her recipes must be both "skinny" and "tasty". I've made versions of her Crock pot MeatballsItalian Spinach Meatballs and Meatloaf Cupcakes and loved how easy and delicious they were. Her blog is also a pleasure to read because all her food photos are so beautiful.
