The Fit Stop

 I just got back from the hair salon…

And realized that my interview in Fitness Magazine was published today.

I am featured as part of their Fit Stop section


The story is here

Earlier in the week I was featured as Food Buzz’s Daily Special

From Snickers Bar Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

to talking Fitness

I’m honored to have been chosen for these features!

So rather than just spouting off about Diet vs. Exercise on my own blog, I got to spout off elsewhere, too.  Thanks for humoring my spouting.

After a hard day at the salon, it was time to come home and eat bon-bons and watch soap operas.  Kidding!

But at the very least a Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ball from the freezer hit the spot!

I had fun reading what your favorite scents are from earlier today, too.


1. What are your favorite magazines?  Do you subscribe?  Read online?

I joke that I don’t read books unless you count my Google Reader as a book.  I am almost the same with magazines.  I just don’t have time to read them!  But I want to.  I’ve been posting for years that my goal is to read more.

I let all my subscriptions lapse other than Yoga Journal

Alanis Morissette  is on the cover this month. I saw her perform live many times back in the day!   Her shows were fabulous!

You Outta Know.  I think I belted out the lyrics to that one about 98987 times circa mid ’90s.  Are you thinking of me when you…

I recently won a subscription to Allure so I get that one, and in the past have gotten Cosmo, W, Marie Claire, Glamour, Self, Hers, Shape, Vogue, Fitness, Redbook, InStyle, you name it, I’ve probably had a subscription to it at one point. 

Currently, down to just two print magazines.  Oh and the dozens of parenting magazines that I get but those are all freebies and carry-overs from when I was pregnant.  Five years ago!  Not sure why or how they just keep showing up!

I do miss pleasure reading from real books and real magazines, but 95%+ of my reading is online.

I do take pleasure in reading blogs, reading what’s in my  Google Reader, reading articles on the internet.

I’m an instant gratification girl so being able to clickity-click and hop around as I see fit on the ‘net is the best thing since sliced bread Deep Dish Double Chocolate Golden Grahams Smores Bars.

2. What are you reading right now?  Books, magazines, blogs, websites?

 Tell me your faves!

3. Any Fitness Tips you want to Share?

I posted extensively yesterday about my thoughts on Diet vs. Exercise and tons of links and tips in that post so check it out if you missed that one.

Hair pics…next post.

  1. Congratulations on the article, I really enjoyed reading it!

    I don’t really have time to read books when I’m not on holiday but I do have a 45 minute commute on public transport every morning/evening so I’ll often pick up a magazine then but I’m afraid I like the trashy gossip and fashion magazines best…

  2. Congratulations on all these features! You go girl, you are killin it lately. I guess all the hard work pays off!

    I don’t think I’ve read a magazine in like a year, and subscribed to one in forever! Most of my reading comes from blogs and school, but during lunch I always have a book. Right now it’s Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs and Wear Cows by Melanie Joy. I love it so far! So simply written and logical. I’m enjoying it far more than I did Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer.

  3. congrats averie!! this is so exciting! I lov eyour blog! you always keep it fresh, you are REAL and dont preach any lifestyle but stay true to yourself…I love that about you! Yes we must catch up!! i am competing on sept 25th in Boston :) shoot me an email this weekend and we can catch up on lives xoxo

  4. Averie, I’m *still* listening to Alanis. You Oughtta Know is my current go-to shower song. Love her SO much!!
    And look at you, getting all famous and recognized. I love it!

  5. Congrats on the Fit Stop feature!

    I don’t read any magazines, unless I’m caught somewhere like a hair salon without a book. Then I just flip through them aimlessly ;)

    Just finished reading the latest “Jason Bourne” novel and am now starting a new J.D. Robb book. Most of my reading time is on the bus during my commute to work.
    Blogs (other than yours): Elana’s pantry, Oh She Glows, The Spunky Coconut, The Renegade Health Show, Carolyn Dean MD, and Natural News.

  6. I could save a ton of money if I weren’t subscribed to so many magazines! But I love taking them with me to the gym and they provide hours of entertainment so I don’t see it changing any time soon. I also read at least 2-3 books at a time and am constantly reading online. Although reading online is my least favorite reading to do (even though there are so many blogs I LOVE) I just can’t stand sitting at my computer reading. I’d much rather be curled up on the couch with a book or magazine.

  7. I’m a little bit of a fashion junkie, and my job right now requires me to look through magazines for designer mentions, so I read a LOT of fashion magazines. Tons! I really love fitness mags like Self and Shape and most recently, Yoga Journal! They keep me inspired to try new things.
    I’ve seen Alanis perform live too! She’s great!

  8. averie, congrats on being featured!!! (i’m so late but better late than never!!))

  9. I am reading a book called:

    “The World is Fat.”

    It is quite interesting.

  10. Congratulations on the feature! And for being faetured on Foodbuzz as well :-)
    The only magazine I read is Natural Health (UK), but I adore reading books. Lots of non-fiction but I also love a good novel- The Sea by John Banville is one I am reading at the moment.

  11. Congratulations! I’m not surprised that Fitness chose to interview you: you’re awesome and fun and inspirational!

    I just finished a trashy romance; next I’m going to reread Crazy Sexy Diet. Also, I read along with my students which means I’m reading Night (seniors) and Lord of the Flies (sophomores).

    I picked up three cookbooks at the Borders closing sale: Peas & Thank You, Read Food Daily cookbook, and The Conscious Cook.

    Yeah, I read all the time. These books are in addition to my regular magazine, Facebook, & blog reading.

  12. Congratulations! How excited you must be!
