Plug Your Blog!

in All Posts

I’m off on a long, long bike ride (60 to 75 miles?).  Eckkkk.  Pray for me!


The theme of today’s bike ride is “try something new.”


I’m trying a new pre-workout breakfast (luckily, biking is not like running; you can eat almost anything before getting on the bike or during the ride):


I was really craving eggs and toast!


I am also trying other new things today:


  • Bringing more food on the ride.
  • Wearing a CamelBak filled with water.
  • Bringing two water bottles filled with straight Gatorade.
  • Packing sunscreen so I can reapply halfway through the ride!


In the spirit of trying new things and the fact that I’ve left you with almost nothing fun to read on HTP, I thought this would be a fun chance for everyone to find new blogs to explore.  New blogs, new readers, new friends!


If you’re a blogger, simply comment with:


  • Your name
  • Your blog address
  • Your blog type (recipes, fitness, healthy living, weight loss, mommy/daddy, life musings, scrapbooking, wedding, photography… whatever)
  • One fun fact about you, an interesting thing you’ve tried recently, or why you think people should check out your blog.




  • Caitlin
  • Healthy Living
  • I love running, dachshunds, French fries, Brussel sprouts, and beer equally.

    photography – of generally anything — it’s brand new with only three or four posts up thus far. It’s about finding the wonders and simple pleasures in life. Anticipate nature, baby ducks, Green Monsters, sunrises, and maybe a few shots of the gym.
    Fun Fact: I played French horn in high school and LOVED it. So, I decided this week to join the community orchestra in my city. Should be fun!

    Your blog type: My blog was started FOUR years ago this month when I began my journey through nursing school. Since graduating in 2008, my blog has developed more into a food and healthy living blog. I do discuss my work as an ICU nurse, but also post pics of food creations, and as of recently, will be exploring the world of triathlons!

    You should check out my blog because I’m just a normal person trying to live a healthy lifestyle. I also post fun stories from the hospital, like people who decide they want to kiss poisonous snakes and then git bit on the tongue and end up in my ICU on the ventilator! see, fun! I’ve also been in a relationship with my wonderful boyfriend, Mirza for 7 years, so he makes an appearance numerous times. PLUS, he is very sexy, so come on by:)

    I originally started the blog because of my love of baking. I’ve found several recipes through blogs that I’d really like to give credit for. But as I started writing, I found that I wrote a lot about struggling with exercise and eating healthy. So, I’m hoping that through this blog, people will be inspired to make healthier decisions whether it is through exercise or not. I know that I eat some pretty terrible things but by being more mindful of what I’m eating and how I’m exercising, I will be healthier.

    Something new I’ve tried recently: My husband and I recently started a concert ministry at our church, so I’m learning the ins and outs of planning large-scale events, keeping up our ministry’s blog, and learning how to create a website. It’s been really exciting.

    half food, half fun! (and lots of awesome quotes too!)

    This quote by Lee Brice fits me perfectly:

    “She’s got her daddy’s tounge and temper. Sometimes her mouth could use a filter
    God shook his head the day he built her but I bet he smiled”

    I also love theme parties (throwing and attending) grandparents (mine and yours) and being on the lake (and all that applies)

    My plug:
    *Health on the Run (
    *Mostly healthy living (from a vegetarian runner standpoint) with a little bit of health news, public health-y stuff and antics of a boxer pup thrown in
    *I typically keep about 7 – 10 boxes of cereal in my pantry at any given time (gotta have at least 3 or 4 to mix together in my bowl!!) I actually love to bake (unhealthy) desserts way more than I love to cook, I eat my veggies so that I can have chocolate cake and ice cream, and I may or may not have gone through a phase where I made one (yes only one) biscuit every single night at dinner.

    GOOD LUCK on your long bike ride Caitlin!

    Blog Site:

    Descripton: My blog is about healthy shopping and recipes that can be had by shopping at your local Walmart. I was impressed with what Walmart has been doing to revamp their image and include more variety for health foodies on a budget. I also work to get the company to change the products sold in stores (e.g, regular corn fed beef to local grass fed, and more organic produce).

    Fun Facts: My boyfriend and I are trying to plan a hike along the entire Grand Canyon (I live in Arizona) sometime next year. Other than that, I LOVE the outdoors, and actually enjoy the heat 🙂

    ~Blog Type- running and weight loss

    I started my blog and named it “Run, Eat, Date, Sleep” because so many of my friends thought I had such hilarious dating stories that I needed to write them out. But I’m so terrified some of these guys might find my blog, so I don’t write too much about my dating life. Plus, if I ended up falling madly in love with someone, I don’t want him to find out I draw our names in big puffy hearts when I’m bored at work 🙂

    I’m a 20-something, back-of-the-pack runner who enjoys reading blogs, training for my first marathon, collecting plates and mugs, and scrapbooking.

    I used to write about how awesome I was about maintaining my 70lb weight loss following Weight Watchers, but then karma bit me in the ass for being a cocky brat & I gained about 30lbs back. So now I write about my struggles to get back to goal, running & exercise, trying to eat well & live a healthy life as well as pure mindless drivel.

    What a great resource this is. I’ve been looking for health food blogs by Moms and fellow Australians and have managed to find quite a few on this list. Thanks.

    *my blog is a blog about life – the trials and tribulations of the quarter life crisis with a side blog at dedicated to my healthy living endeavors. Currently transitioning to all healthy living on the main blog though 🙂
    *I’ve recently become obsessed with restorative yoga – it has the same effects as a deep tissue massage! It’s amazing!!!!

    Nutrition, exercise, beauty, and fashion
    I have loved nutrition since the age of 12 and I continue to love teaching and learning more every day!

    Overcoming eating disorders, advocating for suicide prevention and eating disorder awareness, nutrition (NO-DIET approach), exercise, and embracing the life God has intended me to live, and getting out of my own way to live it.
    I have the best boyfriend in the world and am looking forward to getting engaged (hopefully) soon! 🙂

    Okay, so I’m wayyy late on this one but since I had this bookmarked I thought I’d add my very new blog

    -My new blog chronicles my pledge to get back into a healthy lifestyle (that includes starbucks & wine, of course) along with my daily musings & duties as both a bridesmaid & maid of honor in the next year.
    -Fun fact: I love Boston, wine, wedding planning, NE sports, health living, coffee, and trying to spot people I know on BostonMed 😛

    Please come and see it and give me any advice you might have. Love your blog!

    Healthy Living, Eating & Everything In Between

    I just lost 10 pounds (and counting!) on a 40 day program!

  • Kathi March 20, 2012, 4:27 pm

    My blog is all about Real Life Health and making sense of senseless research and beliefs about weight loss, health promotion, and exercise.

    At 40 I decided to educate myself on healthy eating strategies and lost 30 pounds over two years. I focuse on healthy aging and weight management over 40.

    Thanks for the plug!
