Ollie's Picks - Blog Posts You Don't Want To Miss

I want to take this opportunity to share some of my favorite blog posts of the week. If you are like me, you waste spend a considerable amount of time online reading blogs. I often read things that are really great, that really deserve to be shared. Of course, like any good blogger, I do my due diligence and click that share button on Twitter or repin on Pinterest (Hint: an easy effective way to support your favorite blog is to pin images from their site.) This week I wanted to take it a step further and highlight my favorite posts of the week.

How I Learned to Stop Slacking and Love the Gym via Broke in Columbia. OK, I love her from her Refashionista blog, so I was thrilled to read a fitness related post from her on her other blog, Broke in Columbia. She is so funny. 

Top 10 Reason Not to Ask a Runner How Their Long Run Went via Deb Runs. This made me laugh. It is funny 'cause it's true.

How to Do What You Love For a Living Instead of Something That Sucks via Chris McCombs. Do not click this link if you are sensitive to strong language. An inspiring message for those of us who don't mind a bit of grit.

Independence Day. Everyday. via Kelly Olexa. Our Fitfluential leader reminds us to be our best selves.

How Not to Get Scammed by Food Labels via Nerd Fitness. I am not a nerd per se (OK, yes I am) but I relate to so much on this blog. This is a smart post about food labels and organic foods.

Learn to Do a Pull-Up (Yes, Even You Can Do It) via Thirty-One10. Really? Even me? You're very convincing.  I almost believe you.

That Time I Made a Video via Tri-ing to Be Athletic. She makes me laugh so hard.

A Single Post Results in Change via The Pavement Runner. So inspiring! Just proves that one idea, one person, can make a big difference (and end up in Runner's World! Wow!). Don't be afraid to take a chance. Pavement runner proves a single person can make a big difference.

Top 10 Myths About Yoga via Mind Body Green. Yoga is for everyone. I love this post.

Cinnamon Chocolate Swirl Brownies (High Protein) via I Heart Wellness. Um, YUM!
