Happy Tuesday everyone! Sorry for being a MIA yesterday. My life has been a little bit of a whirlwind lately. I spent the ENTIRE weekend from when I woke up to the time I went to bed touring apartments and looking at every single furniture place in town trying to pick up everything I need before my big move this Saturday. Oh yeah… I forgot to mention… I FINALLY FOUND AN APARTMENT! I filled out an application on Saturday evening and was approved by Sunday morning and signed my lease yesterday morning! EEEKKK!
I’ll definitely have more on all of that coming up, but since today’s (optional) topic for The Fit Dish linkup is “5 people you would most like to workout with or be trained by”, I wanted to talk about that today! (I’m a little bit of a rule breaker, so my list actually only includes 3.) Thanks Jill and Jessica for hosting The Fit Dish linkup and providing us with fun topics each week! You ladies are so inspiring! #fitfamlove
1. Karena & Katerina from Tone It Up!
Karena and Katerina from Tone It Up! are responsible for jump starting my obsession with fitness 3 years ago, so they obviously have to be on the top of my list. They introduced me to lifting weights, circuit training, form rolling and RUNNING, so I credit them for helping me adopt a healthier lifestyle. After I did their 30 day Love Your Body Challenge 3 years ago, my life made a change for the positive. I learned to love the gym and that I could actually run a 5k, 10k and half marathon with a little bit of training, encouragement, determination and the right mind set, and I fully credit K&K for helping me realize a love for exercise and running that I never knew I had before.
2. Janae from Hungry Runner Girl
Hungry Runner Girl was the first running blog I began reading around 3 years ago and became completely in love with the world of fitness blogging because of Janae. I would love to go on a long run with her and pick her brain about life and all things running because she has a ton of knowledge and techniques that I think would help me step up my running game. I also credit her fun loving and very relatable blog with inspiring me to start my own blog!
3. Adriene from Yoga with Adriene
I always thought that yoga had to be so serious and proper until I started doing Yoga with Adriene videos during the 30 Day Yoga Challenge in January. Though I wasn’t able to finish the challenge, she definitely showed me that yoga should be fun and about doing what feels good for you, instead of trying to do what everyone else is doing instead.
