Fit Blogger We Love: Peanut Butter Fingers

Written on April 14, 2011 at 4:31 pm , by

Julie shares her active lifestyle, nutritious eats and indulgences on her blog, Peanut Butter Fingers.

Dig in! Julie from Peanut Butter Fingers enjoys a fit, healthy lifestyle with occasional treats.

In September 2009, Julie decided to launch her blog, Peanut Butter Fingers, as a way to write about her passions (health and fitness), share recipes and inspire herself to get more creative in the kitchen. We enjoy following along, and adore her fun-loving attitude as well as her balanced approach to living a healthy lifestyle. Here’s what keeps Julie moving:

I’m happiest when I’m: Doing something outside, like hiking or boating, with my husband and our crazy dog, Sadie. I also love swimming in the ocean with my mom, dad and sister.

My biggest indulgence: Ice cream. I could eat my body weight in ice cream and still want more! My husband thinks I need my own spin-off version of the show Man v. Food called Girl v. Dessert where I dominate sweet treats all the time.

Most embarrassing song I’ll admit I work out to: My iPod is stocked with Disney songs and soundtracks from various musicals. Sometimes it’s hard to not start singing in the middle of a workout!

My fitness mantra: I have a bunch! My fall back mantras include: “I never regret a workout” and “You are just one workout away from a good mood.” I did a whole blog post about positive workout mantras and love them. So many times it is mind over matter in the gym, and mantras are a great way to get in the zone.

My motivation comes from: My mom. The optimism, grace and unwavering strength she showed throughout her breast cancer treatment was truly inspiring. Her diagnosis also shifted my mindset from working out and eating healthy for vanity reasons to doing so for my health.
