Have you wondered where I've been? Maybe. Maybe not. That's okay. I gave up on thinking I was going to write some famous blog that has people flocking to my site like moths to a flame a long time ago. It's just too stressful. Instead I'd rather write what I want to write about all the things that I'm Real Into and own the fact that it changes from day to day. I'm eclectic girl. What can I say.
Back to the point. After writing two blog posts that felt forced (despite the fact that I really love those things. Especially Purex Crystals) I decided to re-prioritize for the week. Which has worked out great. I've even gotten plenty of sleep. Until today. Jeffrey just insisted that I get up at 1:30 am to pay attention to him. So now I'm writing my first post for the new week at 3:13 am. So you may be getting my half asleep, rambling voice. Which I may rewrite later. Much like I'm seriously thinking about for the Purex Post so I can give it justice.
But I did have time for a little reading...so here goes my second Real Into Reads.
As you know, I'm studying to be a Pilates instructor. So it only makes sense that I'd be researching and studying up. Honestly, it's hard to find Pilates blogs (other than that super popular one that Cassey Ho runs). But I did run across this interesting article on Oprah.com, Is Yoga or Pilates Better for You? I'm not afraid to hear other opinions. Besides, I know the answer. :)
I just finished a totally awesome book, Supermodel YOU, by Sarah DeAnna, and it really has me thinking. One of the things it has me thinking about it making sure I'm carrying around the correct snacks and emergency food daily. Which I'm horrible at. However, Jennifer, over at The Fit Fork is not bad at it as she so clearly shows us in her post My Top Five Gym Bags & Purse Snacks.
I'm not sure about you but I always forget which foods to buy organic and which it's okay not to. Since money is tight I need the constant reminder of what I can get by with. Melanie at The 5th Level of Motherhood gave me the list. Thank you!
Just because I'm being more relaxed in my blogging approach doesn't mean that I don't want to write the best blog that I can. So I obsessively pour over blogging tips and tricks. One of my favorite places to get those is over at The SITSgirls. Now sometimes I start reading a post and think..."who doesn't know thi"s but if I keep reading I find that hidden gem. That's exactly what happened with How to Share a Link on Facebook & Get Clicks Back To Your Blog. I won't spoil the surprise for you but it has to do with a editing the description box. Oops!

What snacks are in your purse? Are you a SITSgirl? Do you know of any good Pilates blogs?
