Inspiration Galore

Posted: July 8, 2011 at 4:00 pm

You all have so kindly poured out the love for me recently with your Fitfluential Ambassador support and your kind comments on my recent Body After Baby update. I think this afternoon needs to showcase where I get my inspiration from โ€“ you all! Time to check out some more amazing women and their strengths out loud. It never ceases to amaze me the fabulous bunch of women that inhabit the blogging community. Thanks for motivating me each and every day. Love to you all and happy Friday! ๐Ÿ™‚

Lisa @ Iโ€™m An Okie


I've developed a new strength over the past two years. I've learned to listen to my gut and go out and achieve the life I want. I'm hardworking, dedicated, and always striving to life the like I want whether that's in relationships (broke up with someone only to get back together and have a WONDERFUL relationship), education (finally was able to go back to school for Nursing and start a second career), fitness (challenged myself by running two half marathons this year), or just simply enjoying life and living the moment.

Robyn @ The Ranch Wife Chronicles


I am a ranch wife who is raising healthy, high quality protein to feed America.  I am organized, dependable, and caring.  I put my whole heart into the projects I take on and strive to autograph my work with excellence.  I believe in and practice life long learning.

Emily @ Operation Emily

Rebel 5-18 047

I am a mother who adores my smart and confident daughter Olivia and proud to be raising her to be that way. I am a loving and supportive Wife who encourages my husband. I am a Nurse who is strong for others when they are not able to be. I am proud of who I am.

Kat @ Living Like the Kings


I will always make time for myself through exercise - a happy and healthy mommy yields a happy and healthy baby.

Danica @ It's Progression Not Perfection


I'm proud of the respectful, kind person I am to all people.  I work hard to achieve all of my personal goals--about 1 year ago I committed to making a healthier lifestyle for myself (more exercise, naturally/fueling foods, growing in my relationship with God, etc.), and I've truly stuck to it.  I feel better than ever, and I'm really proud to be a great role model for my younger siblings!

Krys @ Musings From Mom School


I am a GREAT mom because I love to get dirty with my boys. I love to do things that are good for the planet and I believe that children learn to respect nature by learning to love it, and they learn to love it by getting out there in it and playing in it. Even if it's chilly or raining, or if there are mosquitoes, snakes or *shudder* ticks, or if I'm baiting fish hooks or whatever. I believe that the dirtier my kids are at the end of the day, the better of a day they had, and that goes for me, too.

Paige @ Running Around Normal

Fitness Mag

I am decisive, passionate, driven, and impulsive. Combined, this leads me to take action on successful projects and ideas in life that wouldn't have come to fruition if I'd second guessed myself or had been wishy washy about them. Of course, it's also lead to some dead ends or "failures" *ahem, learning experiences,* but I'd say the former outweigh the latter ๐Ÿ˜‰

Karen @ Health In Real Life


I am a wife and mom that loves her family unconditionally.  I have a strong body that allowed me to carry twins for 36 weeks.  I am a passionate, kind, loyal, patient and honest woman.

Carolina @ Peas In A Blog


I'm a lover, daughter, sister, friend & life aficionado. I'm a runner & a heck of a cook. I'm a artist & a world traveler. I have a huge heart & love others well. I believe everyone has something to contribute to this beautiful life -- we should live well & live fully!

  • What is one way blogs inspire and motivate you?

  1. Thanks for including me Tina! I feel honored to be included in the same post as Lisa from I’m an Okie, I adore her blog. Will make sure to check out all the other lovely ladies!

  2. I don’t know that I can say there is just one way. It’s almost hard to put into words the amount of inspiration I get daily just from fellow bloggers.

  3. What a beautiful group of women!! So lovely to read about such radiant confidence — love it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Jess says:

    Totally agree with Heather on this one – you all inspire me for such different reasons. I feel so lucky to be part of this fabulous group of fit blogging fiends!

  5. This is an adorable post. I love all these people that you included. I’m inspired by bloggers who have similar passions and similar lives and similar challenges, but who cope with it in such an encouraging way. I’m also incredibly inspired by the fact that this is a community of women who build another up. Most of my experiences with women-only groups had been very negative, so much competition and cutting others down. In general the blog world is different, and that gives me faith in women again. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Sam says:

    thanks for some new great ladies to check out!!

  7. Thanks for including me, Tina:)
    Currently, I’m inspired by the way bloggers can all come together and support one another!

  8. I love reading about others who strive for a balanced lifestyle — and in doing so, I am motivated to strive for the same thing.

  9. […] to say about myself.ย  I clicked over to catch up on her blog today and guess who happens to be on her post entitled “Inspiration Galore”??ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  It’s pretty awesome/crazy to see my picture on her […]

  10. Danica says:

    Thanks so much for including me on this, Tina!
    It’s so awesome to read about all of these strong, inspiring women! You started something truly great : )

  11. Callie says:

    This is such a great feature! I love finding new blogs to read this way!

  12. Reading motivating blogs is inspiring me to be a better (and more health conscious) person! You are so motivating! And so are these ladies, a few I haven’t read yet! I’m going to have to check them out.

  13. Karen says:

    Thank you so much for including me Tina!! It’s such a great thing you are doing! Happy Friday!

  14. I love Lisa from I’m an Okie! She’s such an inspiration, I can easily see why you chose her ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Michelle says:

    These posts make me smile ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy Friday!!

  16. Oh gosh. Blogs inspire and motivate me in so many ways. I feel like I’m a completely different person right now than I was this time last year, and while reading blogs (and starting my own) certainly were not the sole factor in making me who I am today, I think they gave me the motivation to do things that I probably wouldn’t have done otherwise (like cook happily instead of begrudgingly for example, haha). I’m so glad I stumbled across this wonderful community ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Amber says:

    I love this post. What a unique way to share all these beautiful women. I will be sure to check them out!! This community of amazing people has really taught me a lot. Thanks Tina! You are awesome.

  18. I LOVE Lisa from I’m An Okie! She is definitely super awesome. I love her honesty ๐Ÿ™‚ And I love you too! hehe

  19. Thank you for introducing me to some amazing new blogs!! Reading blogs are daily remide that working hard to live a healthy and happy lifestyle is totally worth the extra effort you have to put in. It’s also so nice to hear from people who have a similar passion as you! ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope to be where YOU ARE!

  21. i love reading about all unique, beautiful amazing women and what they have to share, whether it be personal, fitness, health, utrition anything! i love hearing stories and ‘meeting’ people through the blog world!!!

  22. This reminds me that I still have to email you!! I put it in a folder and keep forgetting about it!

    Reading blog reminds me that as cliched as it sounds, there is no one definition of beauty. I think so many blog women are absolutely gorgeous, talented and strong, and none of them look anything alike. It’s good for me to see that on a daily basis!!

  23. Robyn says:

    Thanks for including me, Tina! You made my day. In turn, continue the excellent and inspiring work you do.

  24. Reading and writing blogs keeps me focused on my goals, encourages me to eat healthier, exercise more and live a fuller life!

  25. I love all this blog love that is going on lately! Helps me find some awesome new reads!!!

  26. tina–im honored to be apart of this. someday when i get osme time i plan on visiting all of these sites.

  27. google says:

    If people liked one of your books they more than likely
    want to read all of them so put some free chapters on Wattpad and
    other sites. You can get a good monthly result for all those hard earned money directly
    invested in an SEO services company. Image optimization also significantly boosts the search engine rankings and
    site traffic.

  28. domain says:

    Greate article. Keep writing such kind of info on your
    page. Im really impressed by it.
    Hi there, You have done a great job. I will definitely digg it and personally suggest to my friends.
    I am confident they will be benefited from
    this web site.
