Thursday links

Oh my goodness – is this week taking forevvvvvver for anyone else?? I have been crazy busy with teaching BODYPUMP, training for spin, working and keeping up with Luke this week.

I wanted to spread some blog love today by sharing some of my favorite reads from around the blog world lately.  . .

**Cranberry Streusel Cheesecake Bars from Peas and Crayons –> perhaps the perfect thing to make with all my cranberries for my November goals???

**A truly inspiring race recap post by Meals and Miles about her 1st ironman.

**An awesome kick your butt upper body and core workout from It’s Progression. I did this workout as part of my aerobics class on Saturday morning and it. was. awesome.

**The awesome virtual potluck in celebration of Olives ‘n’ Wine turning 1 yesterday. Katie and Erica did a fabulous job organizing and surprising Becky. And they both have a full list of all the bloggers that participated, so make sure you check out their blog posts!!

**Annette did a good reminder on how to get in your greens each day. . . and included in her post – super cute pics of her new baby – Lily!! <—and I totally love how she keeps it real in each of her posts!!

**And speaking of keeping it real, Ashley does that in every post, and she has been sharing lots of her thoughts as a new Mom to the adorable Atlas – and I loved this post about adjusting to life with a newborn and 2 dogs!

Any must-reads from the blog world that I missed from this week??

  1. Those cheesecake bars look awesome!

    I read so many blogs, sometimes I can’t even keep up with them. I have my favorites, of course, which are my daily “must reads”…but I won’t lie, sometimes I skip a few of them, especially on WIAW. For some reason I can’t stand looking at all the chia seeds and green smoothies every week. HAHA! Don’t worry though, you make the daily cut! 😉

  5. Aw, thanks for the shout out! This made my day! & I also loved Annette’s post on fitting more greens into your day. I have to make a serious effort to eat greens now because Dave helps with a lot of the meals and if it were up to him we would never eat anything green…except maybe a green m&m.
