How did it get to be the 10th of February? How did I not post for a week? What is going on?

Oh, yeah, real life. My life has been really real lately and my blogging everywhere has taken a downturn. I am hoping that it changes here really soon because otherwise I’m going to have word explosion!

I have an idea of what I want to write about for the next dozen entries or so, but actually getting those entries out is proving to be a struggle. Today is day two of being home from work due to severe sinus congestion and I am not very motivated to actually do the research I need to. Yet. Maybe later. Or maybe I’ll go to bed at 8pm again.

Either way I’ll be back … soon(ish).

Instead of five challenges (does anyone actually do the challenges but me?) I am sharing five blogs I think you should check out this week! Let me know what you think!

  1. Breaking the Mirror –  For any woman who has lived with an eating disorder, or knows someone else who has, this blog is a great resource with personal stories that make it readable. Angelique‘s recent entry on running five miles hit home for me. I love the personal touches that Angelique includes in her blog and absolutely recommend you check out this place!
  2. – this website is all-inclusive with regards to health and fitness. Everything from celebrity fitness to polls to tech information, this site is fun, informative and pretty to look at, too!
  3. Mental Health Notes – Alicia is such a positive advocate for mental health awareness that she makes me feel weak in my own efforts. With giveaways, links, personal stories and lots of encouragement, Alicia is a one-woman therapy group who always welcomes new readers!
  4. Women’s Health & Fitness Guide – when I first found this website, I was overwhelmed with all of the information. There is a lot of writing on this site, but it is easy to read, informative and educational. Writing for Weight Loss Success has been a very impactful entry for my life since I haven’t been able to run like I would like to!
  5. Women’s Health News – exactly what the blog title reads. Need a source for women’s health news? This blog is for you.

On Fridays, I am going to encourage you to do five different things in the next seven days. Those things may range from small to big, but I’m going to try to challenge my readers. If you’re up for taking the challenge, leave me a comment and I’ll add you to a list on this (and every following Friday’s) post!

By next Friday, I challenge you to do the following five things!

1. Go for a walk. Take ten minutes, take a half-an-hour, take two hours even and go for a walk. Walk slow, walk fast, or walk in-between, but get outside and go for a walk. Take your pet, take your spouse, take your children, but get outside and walk around!

2. Write a hand-written note or letter to someone. We’re so dependent on emails, blogs and IMs to talk to one another; think about the power of a handwritten note. Drop your mom a card, write a co-woker a “way-to-go!” Post-It note, use your pen and some paper and spread the love.

3. Hide $1 in an old purse or wallet, or the cookie jar, or the junk drawer even. This dollar can help you get more food for less money in the future!

4. Turn off the TV for one hour when you would normally watch it. I don’t care what you do, but turn off the TV and do something else, go outside, meet your neighbors, do something else! Leave me a comment on each of my previous posts if you don’t have anything better to do!

5.  Drink 8 glasses of water in one day. It’s not impossible, you can do it! Everyone and everything needs water – do you think you’re getting enough water. Try to get enough one day and then see how you feel!

I’ll be right there with you this week as you strive to try these five new things! Let me know how it goes and remember, change is good!
