“It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me, and I’m feeling good.”
If you watch television even once in a while, you’ve probably heard Jennifer Hudson belt out these lyrics on a WeightWatchers commercial hundreds of times. If you tune into channels like TLC, Lifetime, and Bravo, you’ve probably seen it even more. Her deliciously soulful voice makes you want to just get up off the couch and do something. But if ogling at Jennifer Hudson’s new svelte bod just isn’t enough to make you shape up your fitness and well-being game, we’ve got five of our favorite fitness blogs lined up to keep you motivated all semester long.
Fit Bottomed Girls
The writers of Fit Bottomed Girls post workout DVDs, new product reviews and fitness news, as well as discuss personal accounts of their exercise endeavors, tidbits on healthy food, workout music suggestions and playlists, and fitness humor. We especially like their “Fit Journey” section.
Carrots ‘N’ CakeCarrots ‘N’ Cake started as author, blogger, marathoner and CrossFit addict Tina Haupert’s personal food and fitness journal but blossomed into a blog about her love of food, staying fit and living a healthy life. She writes in an easy-breezy style that keeps you coming back for more!
Jack Sh*t, Gettin’ Fit
Put a little laughter into your diet with this blog by a guy named Jack who promises to give you “a heaping helping of health and hilarity.” Through photos, videos, song lyrics and snarky poetry about the battle of weight loss, Jack Sh*t reminds us to stop taking ourselves too seriously and stay positive, even when you fall off the fitness wagon. He is one of our most beloved fitness bloggers!
SELF Magazine Fitness Blog
The staff at SELF magazine put together a mean fitness blog full of workout ideas and new gear and apparel reviews — all written in a short and to-the-point fashion. The articles are relevant, touching upon health, beauty, and fitness – our favorite topics!
Yoga-inspired athletic apparel company Lululemon has created quite the community of like-minded souls. And, one of the ways they keep them in the conversation is with their blog. It’s a place where Lululemon staff talk about their fitness experiences outside the office and motivate you in the process, among other topics. Beware: You may just wander off into the apparel section of the website and pick up that cute new pair of leggings you’ve had your eye on.
