Sista Show Off: Fitness/Diet Blogs

Welcome to another post from the Sista Show Off series! In this series I like to show some love to other companies, blogs, businesses, organizations or just regular ladies like myself who are paving the way for women everywhere! Let me feature you! Shoot me an email at

As most of you know I have been actively training to run a 5K. I have been serious about fitness since July but I have kicked it up a notch within the past month or so. It is super hard to stay motivated. I can deal with eating healthy but forcing myself to run and sweat and lift weights is totally out of my element. Thank God for blogs like Gaining Beauty while Loosing Booty. This fitness trainer/Mommy really has been wonderful at keeping a beginner like me focused and motivated.

And then there’s the Diet Blog. I check this blog EVERY day. The posts are just as informative as the readers’ comments. The blog authors actually respond to your questions and are extremely helpful.

Talk about about a strong sista! Confessions of a Fitness Diva drops a ton of tips to help tone your flabby parts.

My other favorites include:

These blogs have been instrumental in inspiring me to stick to this new way of living. And don’t think you can’t do it. Had you told me a few months ago that I would be running 3 miles a day, I would have laughed at you. Soon I will be starting the Nike + program (I owe that one to you, Mischo!) and hope to make exercising as normal as breathing. Taking care of our bodies is beauty too!

Any athletes out there? Or anyone else working to loose weight or become more fit? Tell me!!

….and as always, stay beautiful!!
