Sweet Katie J of Katie J is on her way has given my WLB blog an award!  That's an awfully nice perk in the middle of a contest.  I have been making the rounds on health, fitness, and weight loss blogs for motivation, support, and wisdom.  I loved Katie's Dear Future Me Letter and challenge everyone to write their own!

The rules of the Stylish Blogger Award are to link to and thank the blogger that gave it to you.  (I appreciate you, Katie!)  Then list 7 things you don't know about me and pass it on to 15 new blogs that you have discovered.

1. I am not a fan of hot liquids.  Lukewarm is more my speed, but I prefer cold/icy the most.
2. Except water, which I like hot from the tap.
3. I am very easily too hot or two cold to the extreme, but I'm very rarely comfortable.
4. Looks like I'm overly obsessed with temperature!
5. I hated dolls growing up and only played gymnastics in the yard or with model horses.
6. I love dolls now after having daughters!
7. I used to have my nose pierced and sometimes miss it...

Adding a #8.  I am also a freak about fabric.  It must feel good and breathe with me, or I won't wear it!  I'm also a crocs and tennis shoes gal.  With everything.

For fifteen blogs I recently discovered, I must start right here with WLB and it's contestants.  If it weren't for this contest, I might not have chosen to change my life right now!  

1. Win, Lose, or Blog is now in season 3 of inspiring bloggers to become more healthy!  Please help it to grow by spreading the word!
2. Fellow WLB Season 3 contestant Amanda 
3. Fellow WLB Season 3 contestant Brenda
4. Fellow WLB Season 3 contestant Donna
5. Fellow WLB Season 3 contestant Joslyn
6. Fellow WLB Season 3 contestant Megan
7. Fellow WLB Season 3 contestant Rachel
8. Fellow WLB Season 3 contestant Summer
9. Stephanie of She's In There Somewhere
10. Myndie of Clean Eating Opera Chic
11. Pattie of Dread Pirate Alice
12. Lanie Painie of Healthy Schmealthy
13. Suzanne of Cup-Tin Creations
14. Sunset97 of Daily Bubbles
15. Courtney Love of It's only 90 Days

Honestly, how does one choose?  I have read many, many inspiring blogs this year, so I began with my first supporters here at WLB.  I am so grateful for them!  Here are a couple more:

16. Miesha of Ms. Phyt..Phat..N..Phyne
17. Tina of Faith, Fitness, Fun
18. Dr. J at the Calorie Lab
19. I Will Lay Down My Idols
20. Erin of Big Girl Feats
21. And best for last:  Lindsey Lu of Fitness For The Rest of Us.

Happy reading!

Pushin' through the pain!


  1. Congrats on that award, Pauline! :)

  2. Wow, you're stylish! Congratulations. As a fellow lacto-freak, I believe that nursing looks good on everybody. Just wanted to add that non-related comment. :-)

  3. Congrats on being stylish!! :) I honestly think the Hubs threw away one of my crocs because he thought I wore them too much!

  4. I have a hard time being comfortable temperature wise, too!

  5. It was my pleasure Miss Pauline! Love learning more about everyone.

    Thanks for the comment about the Future Me letter. I actually made it a permanent page on my blog now so I can refer to it.

    Have a great day!

  6. Well, hi, Pauline! I just stopped by to thank you for the wonderful comment you left on my blog. I appreciated it very much. I always wonder if others will be as blessed with something as I was or if it was just a 'me' thing. :)

    You know, I have NO idea what this win lose blog thing is! :O But congrtulations on winning it!


  7. Im the SAME way w/ temperatures! I am never at the perfect temp- usually too cold :( even living here in the desert!!! Thanks for the shout out :) ((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))))

  8. Hey, sweetie! I'm so glad to "meet" you. Thanks for stopping by my blog "I am that." I'm so sorry to hear that you don't have many supportive friends and am so honored to become one for you! Please keep in touch so that we can encourage one another. And if you are a reader, I highly recommend a book called The Flat-Belly Diet. It's bright yellow, and you just can't miss it. That's how I happened upon it in the library. It's designed for women over 40 or so, at which point it's extremely hard to lose belly fat. This diet is very heart healthy and only incorporates exercise if you want to. It focuses on health and food. I can't wait to chat more!

    And girl, if you want a nose ring, pierce that thing!

  9. I'm with you on fabric, just the thought of a "bad" fabrics on my back will drive me crazy. *shaking off the willies* congrats on the award.

  10. Congrats on the award; stay warm!

  11. I'd say the word "stylish" really just means that you are a swell, unique, awe-inspiring person! ;-)

    You should come to is perfect right now. :-)

  12. Rachel, I didn't know you were a fellow lacto-freak. Love that random compliment!

    LA sounds wonderful temp-wise right now. AHHHHHH. Wouldn't it be neat if we could all get out and play some crab soccer together? If I win, who will travel? LOL!

  13. This is soooooo awesome! I am so glad you stopped by at my blog! WLB is so inspiring! I will definitely keep in touch about your progress! = )


Thank you for commenting! Your support means the world to me. :)
