The Honest Scrap Blog Award

Holy Moly! Today, my dear blogging friend Michelle of Secrets of a Former Fat Girl gave me the honor and presented me with the Honest Scrap Blog Award!

Thank you so much Michelle. I am truly touched and honored to accept this awesome award...how great!

So, I know you're wondering what is this Honest Scrap Blog Award?

According to the web...

"This award is bestowed upon a fellow blogger whose blog content or design is, in the giver’s opinion, brilliant. This award is about bloggers who post from their heart, who oftentimes put their heart on display as they write from the depths of their soul."

Now that's deep!

There are three rules that need to be followed upon accepting this award.
1)Brag about it
2)Select 7 Blogs you find brilliant and link to them
3)List 10 honest things about yourself

Ok, so, I think it's pretty safe to say that I've earned my bragging rights by blogging about my award right here. So, I'll cross rule number one off the list...check!

On to rule nuber two

I read a ton of wonderful amazing blogs and I love them all...and like to consider them all brilliantly written in their own right. But, per rule number 3, I can only pick 7. So, these are the ones that just jumped to my mind.

Listed in no particular order...

1) Secrets of a Former Fat Girl written by non other than Michelle herself!

2)Mama's Weeds Written by Alison

3)Simply Clean™ Clean Eating, Nutrition, Fitness Written by Maria Peters

4)Melissa's Journey to the Figure Pro-Stage! Written by Melissa

5)THE CONFESSIONS OF A SAHM Written by Justine

6)Heather Eats Almond Butter Written by Heather

7)Peanut Butter Swirl Written by Kailey

Please check out these blogs and see just how great they are!!

Now for rule number three....listing 10 honest things about myself. Hmmm, I'll try not to bore you all too much with this one...ha!

1)I believe in love at first sight

2)I love pickled foods. Eggs, bologna, potatoes, kraut, veggies, ect....love them all. Well, not pickled pigs feet...eek!

3)My father died of cancer when he was only 51 years old. I was only 23. I was so mad at God over it, that I refused to pray or have anything to do with God for two years after.

4)I won 20 bucks at a singing contest when I was 8 years old.....singing Rudolf the red nosed reindeer

5)I am super clautrophobic

6)I earned my Nursing Degree at Hurley Medical Center School of Nursing in Flint Michigan

7)I have a burning desire to learn the piano

8)I am extremely tehnically challanged....never could figure out how to run the VCR..ha!

9)I am married to my most bestest friend in the whole wide world.

10) I am owned by Einstein the Eclectus Parrot. (When you have a bird, they own YOU not the other way around)


  1. WHOOO! What a great honor. Congrats girl

  2. Linda,
    Thank you so much. I am honored, and it was so fun to learn all these facts about you. I love pickled foods, and I'm completely claustrophobic as well. I can't even stand to sit in a window seat - have to be in the aisle seat or I feel trapped. Oh, and you know how I love the name Einstein for a pet. :)

    Thanks again!

  3. Hey Congrats Linda!!! I was shocked when I scrolled down and saw that you picked my bloggie!!!! Wow, I have never tried pickled bologna.....But when I was preggo I for sure would have eaten it :). Now off to think of 7 things my readers dont already know about me?????


  4. awww, thank you linda for the honor! AND like heather said, it was also neat to read upon the facts about you!

    OH and off subject,but about the HIIT question to yesterdays post---
    still keep in your steady state days for cardio, in conjunction with HIIT-just no LSD (long slow distance,meaning anything more than 1-2 hours,depending on your fitness level) in order to perserve that hard earned muscle! (but one LSD day a week is good for you as well to help up the caloric burn!)

    as always,keep up your hard work and Happy Training!
    Thanks again!

  5. Awww, thank you Linda! I'm honored!

    #2 The only pickeled thing I like is pickled cucumber! hehehe!

    #9 well you've figured out how to blog so I think you aren't as technically challenged as you believe! :)

  6. Congrats on the award Linda!! I love reading interesting facts about other people. Have you tried making kraut yet?:)

  7. Hey congrats! One thing I love about these blogs is that we get to validate our own awesomeness YOU ARE ALLOWED TO BRAG! (see my giveway for cetaphil!)
