Fitness Friday#2


Happy Friday everyone! I don’t know about you guys, but sometimes it’s really difficult for me to find motivation to get up and exercise, just like it’s not always easy to prep a healthy meal plan for the week or find a way to deal with stress. Today, I’ll introduce you to some of my favorite fitness and health-related blogs that I like to read whenever I’m in need of some motivation or encouragement ;) .

Neila’s website is simply amazing. If you are someone who is a highly visual person, you’ll love what she does. She creates those beautiful, visual workout posters that require absolutely no equipment. Neila also writes about nutrition, motivation and a lot more- all free of charge. Her workouts are very easy to follow, regardless of your fitness level and what makes it even more awesome, all of her posters are printable in high resolution. I can’t wait for her to start making YouTube videos!

myfitnesspal blog

I’m sure that many of you have heard of I’ve used their app for years and it was my college nutrition professor who introduced me to their website. While is a free calorie counter and food diary, their blog features articles written by nutritionists, sports journalists, authors and fitness experts. The blog articles touch on many subjects such as fitness (obviously), nutrition, mental wellbeing, inspiration and lots more.


Being healthy isn’t just about working out and eating right. Healthy, happy mind is just as important and that is why I love If you are someone who tends to get anxious, easily gets into depressive moods, or simply want to live a more peaceful, positive life, you should make it a habit to visit I think that we live in such a fast-paced world, we rarely stop and think about what is truly important in life. We hold grudges, we think that forgiving is a weakness, we play victims, get sad, depressed, feel unaccomplished and are very often being too hard on ourselves. holds answers to many important life questions that you may have. It’s “simple wisdom for complex lives”.

    • Hahaha ;) I honestly love exercising but some days it’s the last thing that I want to do.

  • Push up is soooo hard for me seriously I almost give up working out every time I have to do it. However, when I look at myself in the mirror, I feel like ”things need to be changed” I can’t stand looking at myself like that, as well as my health. And that’s how I inspire myself every single day to work out, not only for body shape, but also to relieve stress xx

    • Oh yes! Working out is great for relieving stress!

  • Thanks for sharing those wonderful websites. I love to work out and do yoga sometimes!
