Sometimes when you’re trying to find the motivation to put on your trainers rather than your slippers after a day at work, or to open some rice cakes instead of sweets, it can take some outside influence to keep you on track.
For me, I like to follow some health and fitness blogs who represent ‘real’ people all fighting the same battle (to live a healthy but FUN life)!
I’ve listed some of my favourite health blogs and online resources below, and please share your favourites in the comments section! You can click on the name of the blog to visit them directly!
Carrots ‘N’ Cake – Tina shares her health and fitness lifestyle with her readers, as well as some fun series such as “What I’m Loving Lately” and “High Low High”. Workouts, Recipes, Lifestyle
Sarah Fit – Sarah is a certified personal trainer & fitness enthusiast based in Boston and her blog features lots of great workouts & recipes. She’s just had a baby so the blog also includes lots of maternity workouts and post-partum tips. Sarah regularly creates videos too.
Preppy Runner – Theodora started her blog as a way to stay accountable when trying to lose weight (sounds familiar!) and lost 50 pounds! She also works as the social media manager for Daily Burn. I love Theo’s blog as we share a love of wine/cocktails and she’s very honest in how hard she finds it to lose weight and maintain it!
Lazy Girl Running – this is a relatively new discovery for me, but I like the way Laura (who is also a running coach) tells her story as a teen / 20 something who didn’t exercise much to an ultra-marathon running badass! As well as being a personal trainer/running coach, Laura also writes a column for Men’s Running magazine and has written two books! #CRUSH
FitSugar – Part of the Pop Sugar group, Fit Sugar can almost be too much, they publish so many articles/videos etc. Some of them go copletely over my head, or just aren’t relative to me, but others are great, like the recent 30 minute cardio boxing and core video!
Inspiralized – Ali Maffucci is a true 21st century entrepreneur. She discovered the spiralizer in 2013 and hasn’t looked back, quitting her full time job, losing 25lb and writing 2 cookery books along the way! I love her Instagram accounts. @alissandrab is her personal account and @INSPIRALIZED is the blog account, and there’s @getinspiralized which Ali uses to record her workouts.
The Body Coach – Joe Wicks seems to be EVERYWHERE at the moment and his Instagram account contains some motivational before and afters, is home to the #LeanIn15 recipe videos, and he often doesn’t have a t0shirt on. What’s not to love, wink wink.
So, these are my favourite health and fitness blogs at the moment, remember to share yours in the comments!
