I bet this little guy pees when he’s excited too! Like when he sees his Precious…
SHAPE magazine just came out with their list of Top 20 Blogs for Fitness Junkies! That alone is fabulous news for both me and my Google Reader. (Did you know Jamie from Cranky Fitness is back and crabbier (i.e. funnier) than ever? Or that Tricia from Every Gym’s Nightmare is blogging again?) The Fit Bottomed Girls,Lisa of Workout Mommy, Tricia of Endurance Isn’t Only Physical, and Jess of Fit Chick in the City also represent!
With so many fantastic bloggers out there (both on the list and not), I am so so honored to be nominated (and that’s where the pageant queen-y part ends because when I heard the news I squeeeee’d and while you may see a pageant girl squeal – although I think technically they’re not supposed to make animal noises – I doubt one’s ever peed herself a little in joy. Maybe if it’s a Donald Trump pageant?)
But I’m not voting for me. I’m voting for this lady:
If you’ve never met Carla/MizFit online (and I find that hard to believe because girlfriend is everywhere in the fit-o-sphere!) then let me tell you why she deserves your votes:
1. She is unfailingly kind.
2. She is a true professional, both in the fitness and the business sense.
3. She cares about people before she cares about anything else.
4. She’s the friend who not only remembers your birthday but remembers that book you mentioned you wanted like 6 months ago and that your kid has a tonsillectomy in a week and that you’re afraid of those gigantic bumblebees because they do not look aerodynamic enough to fly and anything that literally bumbles through the air cannot be up to any good. (Seriously, they’re creepy right??)
5. But my favorite thing about Carla: she is unapologetically herself. She lives everything she preaches and she teaches it every day to her equally amazing daughter. She is a rare voice of sanity in what can sometimes be a very insane industry.
So, voting starts now! I believe you can vote every day. There are so many fantastic bloggers on this list, I couldn’t presume to tell you who to vote for but if you want a suggestion: I’m voting for MizFit:) Every day.
Thank you so much to SHAPE for the honor of including me and congratulations to all the other nominees – you are an amazing group and I’m proud to know (most of) you!
Hope all of you are having a great weekend!
