Thursday Thoughts

 Hi Friends 🙂

Thank you for the advice on the garage sale stuff – I like the idea of just tackling a small bit each day and just getting it done!

 Alright, I may hold onto the Oxycise tapes for a future giveaway – because I know if I sell them I will never be able to find them again!


 I’m sure many of you read Heather’s blog (it is amazing) – but in case you missed it, I wanted to mention that she started a site called Faces of Beauty. Please check it out. Here is a brief description from the site:

What is beauty?  How are you beautiful?  What do you love about yourself?
Do you know that you are beautiful just the way you are? Faces of Beauty is on a mission to celebrate the incredible and unique beauty in all of us.  It throws off the societal pressures to look a certain way and gives an opportunity to share what we love about ourselves.
The hope is that Faces of Beauty will help start a revolution of men, women, and children learning to love themselves just as they are!
Just take a (happy!) picture of yourself from the shoulders up and email it to Heather at heathersdish @ gmail [dot] com.  Make sure you include a little note (500 words or less) about what you love about yourself, what makes you beautiful, and/or your journey to learning to love yourself.  The photos will be posted one photo and paragraph each day under your first name.  Please let me know if you would like to be linked back to your blog/website if applicable!

I am sending this to Heather, but I thought I would post on here as well:

My name is Holly and I am The Couch Potato Athlete. After years of not liking my body, myself, my anything, I am finally on the road to having a better attitude about myself. I have been constantly consumed with negative thoughts about myself, and lately I have been replacing those negative thoughts with positive ones. What has helped me the most: Other healthy living blogs. I love hearing about others on the same journey as me (or about those who have completed their journey!) I always had in my head that you had to act a certain way, eat a certain way and exercise a certain way to be the “ideal” — through blogs I can see more into the lives of real people, and I can simply see that there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to healthy living. I need to find what works for me and not just copy what other people do.  My husband tells me every day that I am beautiful – now is the time for ME to believe this! I am strong, I am beautiful, I am worthy, I am a loyal friend, I am a hard worker, I am amazing.


Check out these giveaways:

Lisa at I’m an Okie is giving away a copy of The End of Overeating.

Samantha at Health, Happiness and Skinny Jeans is giving away a $40 Gift Card.

Let them know that Couch Potato sent you there! 🙂


  1. Tell me what you find beautiful about yourself.
  2. What is the best new-to-you blog that you have discovered?

Have a great Thursday!
