A Daily Dose of Fit by Tara
A Daily Dose of Fit is both a guilty pleasure (once a writer, always a writer) and a supplement to my personal training business. My goal is to inspire you, my clients and my readers, with my thoughts, experience and expertise as they relate to living the fit life. I’ve always been a fairly active individual and as such, I’ve come to appreciate the exceptional way I feel after a good sweat session—and that’s something I want to help you appreciate, too.

Medicinal Marzipan by Mara
Medicinal Marzipan is a blog about body image and authentic living, but it is also a community of phenomenal people who are on their own journeys to learning how to love their bodies JUST how they are today. Amongst us are those recovering from a life time of dieting, disordered eating, trauma, fear, depression, low self-esteem, and shame, and we are working to hold our collective pain and joy.
Real love. Right now.
My name is Caitlin Boyle, I’m 28 years old, and I live in Charlotte, North Carolina with my Husband and my two dogs. This blog documents my life as I strive to maintain health and balance. By sharing my fitness tips and healthy recipes, I hope I can inspire you to live your best life as well. In addition to blogging, I’m an author of three books, including one healthy living guide.
To me, the Healthy Tipping Point is when we stop “trying” to live healthy and centered lives and it just happens. For so many years I struggled to eat well and work out regularly, and then one day — all my little efforts culminated inside me, and I felt balanced in terms of my eating and running habits!
Carrots ‘N’ Cake by Tina
“I love food, and I love eating! While I try to fill my diet with mostly healthy foods, I have a number of favorites that are not necessarily nutritious, but are still delicious and fun to eat. If eaten in moderation, I believe that the “bad” foods can be part of an overall healthy diet. This food philosophy is the inspiration for Carrots ‘N’ Cake.”
Be sure to check out Tina’s book: “Carrots ‘N’ Cake: Healthy Living One Carrot and Cupcake at a Time.

Ground Breaking Organizations to Support
“Women for Women International provides women survivors of war, civil strife and other conflicts with the tools and resources to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency, thereby promoting viable civil societies. We’re changing the world one woman at a time.”
“The goal of the Operation Beautiful website is to end negative self-talk or “Fat Talk.” If this little blog only does one productive thing, I hope it helps readers realize how truly toxic negative self-talk is — it hurts you emotionally, spiritually, and physically.”
“Freedom to Marry is the campaign to win marriage nationwide. We are pursuing our Roadmap to Victory by working to win the freedom to marry in more states, grow the national majority for marriage, and end federal marriage discrimination. We partner with individuals and organizations across the country to end the exclusion of same-sex couples from marriage and the protections, responsibilities, and commitment that marriage brings.”
“Growing up isn’t easy. Many young people face daily tormenting and bullying, leading them to feel like they have nowhere to turn. This is especially true for LGBT kids and teens, who often hide their sexuality for fear of bullying. Without other openly gay adults and mentors in their lives, they can’t imagine what their future may hold. In many instances, gay and lesbian adolescents are taunted — even tortured — simply for being themselves.
While many of these teens couldn’t see a positive future for themselves, we can. The It Gets Better Project was created to show young LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will reach – if they can just get through their teen years. The It Gets Better Project wants to remind teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone — and it WILL get better.”
“Happy Hearts Fund is a non-profit foundation dedicated to improving children’s lives through educational and sustainable programs in natural disaster areas.
