Caitlin loves setting goals, big and small, to get where she wants to be.

Each Tuesday, we’re highlighting one category of winners from our Fitterati Blogger Awards! This week we’re learning the tricks of the trade from our fave healthy living bloggers. 

Caitlin Boyle

  • 28, Charlotte, North Carolina

Caitlin lives the philosophy that “small efforts add up to make a big difference,” and she details those efforts three times a day over on her blog, Healthy Tipping Point. As the founder of Operation Beautiful, a self-esteem movement for young girls taking over the world by Post-Its, we’re confident this new mom will pass on super confidence skills to her son, Henry.

Goal Getter “I think about why I want to accomplish a certain goal. Choosing long-term, realistic goals that are health-focused, rather than appearance-based, keep me motivated. Looking hot and feeling sexy is great, but nothing beats being confident and truly happy.”

Get-Fit Mantra “I love this John Bingham quote: ‘The miracle isn’t that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.’”

Sweat Solution “I have to mix it up – I get so bored doing the same thing over and over again! My weekly workouts include a little pool and sidewalk time; getting outside feels so refreshing.”

You Are Beautiful!

This Valentine’s Day, you don’t need a significant other to revel in the glow of the holiday! Jenna and I were inspired by Caitlin Boyle’s fabulous Operation Beautiful project and decided to spread the love in our offices with the help of a super-cute (and festive) Post-It dispenser.

Here are a few of our favorite messages recently posted on the Operation Beautiful blog that you can share:

  • “To wish you are someone else is to waste the person you are.”
  • “I agree with Bruno Mars, ‘You are amazing, just the way you are.’”
  • “Lost time is never found, so stop doubting that you are beautiful.”
  • “Smile, gorgeous! You look amazing today and everyday!”

Sharing positive messages like these provides an instant mood and self esteem boost for both the giver and the receiver! Feeling inspired? Check out more about Operation Beautiful here.

Caitlin just finished writing her second book, written for the teenage crowd, which we can’t wait to read after pouring over her first!
