Tag! You’re It!

Posted: July 28, 2011 at 7:00 am

I have recently been tagged to share my 7 Links! I figure quite a few of you have seen this type of post going around and I eagerly wanted to participate. Thanks to Gabriela, Callie, Jenn, Heather, and Laura for tagging me! <— and I feel like I’m missing someone…eep!

Basically, I share a link for each of the 7 categories and then tag another 5 bloggers to participate. I’m game! Hope you enjoy my 7 links. :)

Most Beautiful

Exposed: It took a lot to post a picture of myself in a bikini at eight months pregnant. To this day, I think this post expresses the main message I hope to deliver through this blog more eloquently than any other I have shared. It humbles me and inspires me all in one.

Most Popular


I Had A Baby Last Night: By far my most popular post. The post boomed after I shared it and even crashed my site for a bit. I guess you all wanted to see my video of brand new Baby B. And now he’s crawling!!!! Time goes too fast.

Most Controversial


I’ve Got Something To Say!: I don’t avoid controversial topics.  I will happily trod into the dark conversation zones from which others may shy away. This post isn’t really one of those. This post did, however, stem from a few controversial comments and emails I had received regarding how quickly I got back to blogging and working out regularly after Braedon’s birth.

I had received two separate emails with the following statements: “don’t you think its a little selfish to spend time blogging with a new baby?” and “you say take care of our bodies, but then you don’t do that yourself after JUST GIVING BIRTH!!”. It still surprises me I received such statements, but it also solidifies my belief in the importance of doing things for ourselves and letting negativity roll off your back. Whenever I think controversy on my blog, I remember how I felt typing this post in response to such comments.

Most Helpful


How I Overcame Binge Eating: I get more emails about my binge eating journey than any other topic. I loved putting all those thoughts into a cohesive post to hopefully continue reaching out to those struggling and help others see they are not alone.

Surprisingly Successful

What 2147 Calories Looks Like: I had NO clue this post would get the attention it has. In all honesty, I worried the post would seem like a cop out since the bulk of it simply listed out my meals and their calories. I went with it, though, and am so glad I did. It got some great discussion going!

Not Enough Success

How I Create Strength Training Plans: I don’t really like saying any post didn’t have enough success. Having a place to talk incessantly and you all here to support that makes every post a huge success by my standards. However, if I had to choose, I would say my post where I laid out step-by-step ways to come up with a strength training plan. It took a fair amount of effort to create and I thought it was very helpful, but it seemed to get lost in the shuffle of other posts.

Post You’re Most Proud Of

Hard To Write: The post where I laid out my secret dreams for all to read was a pretty proud moment. My nerves raced as I hit publish, but I immediately felt so freed sharing my hopes. It helped motivate me to now take steps to see them happen.

That was fun! And now to tag some other blog friends! I hate picking off the top of my head, so I randomly went to one of my super old posts and picked a few of you great friends that have been around for a lonnngggg time. Muah!

Questions of the Afternoon: When did you start reading FFF? And how did you find my little space on the ‘net? I’m simply a curious cat after digging through old posts and trying to remember who all has been here for how long. 1 year or 1 day - you all mean the world!

    I’m not sure when I started reading or how I found you, but you were definitely still prego with B :) Love your 7 links!

  2. I know I started reading some time within the past few months…probably late March/early April or so. I’m 99.9% sure that I found you through Julie’s (PB Fingers Julie) blog roll. I remember going through it one day looking for new blogs to read, and I’m almost positive that’s where I found yours. Never regretted it! Love your blog so much.

  3. [...] two of my oldest and dearest blog friends – the one and only Tina from Faith Fitness and Fun, tagged me; and Alicia from Poise in Parma tagged me for this fun little “7 links” project. [...]

  4. Tiffany says:

    I started reading your blog about 2 months ago, I think. I found it either through someone else’s blog; if not there, maybe a #fitblog chat. I’ve found a lot of good new reading material/tips through the #fitblog chats.

  5. [...] myself with more I can say. When going through my pages and pages of old posts to come up with my 7 links choices, I realized exactly how much I can talk. Write? Talk? Whatever. There’s a lot there. [...]

  6. This i – Phone app is similar to the Red – Laser app but instead
    connects the user to Amazon’s website. China too bring its better products out
    in the market. I looked around and found a few accessories that you don’t have to go broke buying but still are good quality.

  7. Together they do make a successful, however momentary, entertainment for those who
    continue to be fans even into the new millennium. With guard buddy security app,
    you will be given a ready-made mobile based security forms that you will only need to fill out.

    Definitely one of the best Samsung Instinct apps for sociable
