We love reading the blog Healthy Tipping Point, and we couldn’t believe it when we had a chance to work with Caitlin to produce a guest blog post on Running With Mascara. Keep reading to learn what Caitlin had to share with us about the secrets to healthy living, and how you can improve a day at a time.
Tell us a bit about your blog. How long have you been blogging? How did you come up with the title of your blog? What are you favorite topics to blog about? Why is this topic important to you?
My blogs are OperationBeautiful.com and HealthyTippingPoint.com. Operation Beautiful’s mission is to post kind anonymous messages in public places to promote a healthier body image, and I share healthy living tips and recipes on Healthy Tipping Point. I love to blog about all sorts of things, including vegetarian recipes, women’s health, and race recaps.
If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
The Hunger Games. It’s so intriguing!
What is your greatest pet peeve?
People who stand a mile from the finish line and shout, “You’re almost there!” No.. I …. am… not.
If you were stranded on a dessert island and could only have 5 foods, what would they be?
Hummus, rice cakes, sunflower butter, Panda Puffs cereal, and watermelon.
What are you favorite workout moves?
I love to swim laps in an Olympic-size pool.
What tips do you have for people who are intimidated to start getting healthy?
Small changes make a big difference. Don’t set yourself up for failure by tackling too many goals all at once. Just focus on making one positive choice a day.
Besides healthy living, what’s another important part of your life?
My family is really into holistic medicine. My husband is an acupuncturist and I help him run the Holistic Wellness Center of Charlotte.
What website do you love, but kind of also hate?
I don’t read websites or blogs that fill me with any type of negativity.
If our readers could only read one of your blog posts, which one should they read and why?
