She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not: Fitness Food & Faith

Good morning (or afternoon or evening!) friends! I'm excited to introduce you to one of my favorite bloggers, Sam, who blogs at
Sam writes about, well, fitness food and faith! And I love all three of those things {trying to get into the fitness one a little more with her suggestion on taking up hot yoga} She never fails to inspire me and remind me to be thankful for everything I'm blessed enough to have, as she writes a list of things she's thankful for each week. Sam's so kind and down to earth...so I know you're going to enjoy hearing what she's got her eye on and what she's not. Here she goes!

Hi Michaela fans, Sam here from fitness food & faith!  I’m super pumped to be sharing some of my current loves and love nots on Michaela’s adorable blog. 

She Loves Me:

1) Yoga

I cannot get enough. Vinyasa, power, easy & relaxing…I’ll take it all!  I truly believe no one is too old, fat,
stiff, weak, etc. to try yoga.

2) Boots and blazers – my go-to fall “uniform.” I just got these
lovely boots and paired with skinny jeans/cords and a cute blazer I feel
ready to take on the fall weather (if it would ever arrive in sunny Texas!)

source

3) Anything apple – I know the blog world is all about pumpkin right now, but my favorite fall combo is apple + cinnamon. I’m loving it in muffins, pancakes, pies, breads, spreads, cakes and cider!  Check out some delicious apple recipes here.



4) Men in bowties – my hunky husband in particular. Love that Southern gentleman look.

5) Lindt dark chocolate with sea salt – favorite indulgence currently (and probably forever).  Rich, creamy chocolate with just a hint of salt.  So good! 

She Loves Me Not:

1) Peanut butter – never have, never will.  I have tried so many times to love it…or even just tolerate it!  But hey, nutella is just as nutritious, right?!

source & source

2) 30 minute shows – we are completely obsessed with How I Met Your Mother and Modern Family.  How I wish these shows were longer than 30 minutes.  One week is just so long to wait for more!  

source

 3) Negativity and hurtfulness – as an optimist, it’s shocking to me the way that people
can lash out at others because they are insecure or jealous.  Come on now, let’s be kind and loving!  

source

 4) Traffic – I love living in a big city, but this is definitely the biggest pain that comes with that luxury! 

source

5) Scary movies and all the trailers on TV right now – I love everything about fall except all the scary movies in October.   

Thanks so much for having me, Michaela.  I think that we can all agree that besides

being one of the cutest bloggers around, you have some serious style!

Thanks, girl, for sharing! I've started hot yoga about a month ago and totally love it. And this is coming from a girl who does not like exercising. It's the one thing I enjoy doing! I'm also sharing your distaste for traffic and scary movies. UGH!


Head over to Fitness Food & Faith to meet Sam and get hooked on her awesome blog (:


What are you loving this week? Happy Wednesday!
Love,

  5. These are great! I have to say that although I've always loved peanut butter, you've almost convinced me to give it up after looking at that picture of the baby covered in it. Gross! :)
