Today we are starting a new weekly feature, a roundup of some of our favorite blog posts from the week. We follow so many great bloggers, fitness experts, nutrition gurus, and all-around awesome people, that we want to share that goodness with you.
Here are our Top 5 blog posts from this past week, in no particular order.
Mike Taylor over at Strala Yoga, had a wonderful post this week titled, “Who are you? What do you love? Be that. Do that.” This article drew me in just by the title. What simple and yet profound words of wisdom! Mike applied them to the practice of Strala Yoga and then gave a really great overview of Strala training. We definitely recommend checking this post out.
This week I have been so excited to welcome cooler temps and all things autumn into our lives! I even splurged and bought a pumpkin spice makeup set from Too Faced, super cute! So, when the recipe for Peanut Butter Stuffed Pumpkin Spice Cookies popped up, I was more than ready for it! This recipe comes to us from Vee’s Fitness Food and the pictures on the site are scrumptious looking!
Recently, I have been pondering changing course in my life and looking at fitness, nutrition, and health as more than a lifestyle change for myself, but as a potential career. I’m late to the game but when I came across this article by Kathleen Trotter, I was pumped to explore the possibilities. Lessons Learned – Practical tips to building and maintaining your fitness career explores Kathleen’s own journey. She outlines excellent ways to grow your expertise, your client base, and your career in health. She’s a wonderful person to share her knowledge as she has had much success. She has a master’s degree in Exercise Science, has written two books, and is a personal trainer, nutritionist, Pilates specialist, and a life coach. This lady can do it all!
One of my favorite exercises of this week comes from Jen Sinkler. Her post, Try-This Tuesday: Kettlebell Arm Bar, is a must-read. I have a difficult time with stiffness and lack of mobility throughout my back, but especially my mid-back. The kettlebell armbar that she demonstrates, and does an excellent job of teaching, is perfect for this. It also builds strength and endurance, something I am always trying to improve.
Finally, I found a wonderful video about meditation for beginners. Meditation for Introverts – How to Meditate for Beginners, was created by Rebekah Borucki of Bexlife. Rebekah has a live meditation every Monday morning at 11:11am, which I love. This particular video is especially for introverts, so that makes it perfect for me! Check it out below.
