I’m feeling quite overwhelmed here today.  I have been nominated not once but three times for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.  I’m so flattered I can’t even describe it!  Huge thanks to The Ipockolypse, Weight2Lose2013 and Not Weighting for my Dreams for the nominations.

So, here are the rules:

1.Thank and link to the amazing person who nominated you.
2.List the rules and display the award.
3.Share seven facts about yourself.
4.Nominate 15 other amazing blogs and comment on their posts to let them know they have been nominated.
5.Proudly display the award logo on your blog and follow the blogger who nominated you

And here are my seven facts:

1. I have four tattoos, and I’m planning a fifth to celebrate when I reach my target size/weight
2. The person I admire most in the world is my mum, she’s been through so much herself but she is always there for other people.  She is an inspiration.
3. I can remember song lyrics, phone numbers and vehicle reg numbers from when I was a child but I often can’t remember if I’ve seen a particular film.
4. I love reading; at the moment I’m reading my way through Philippa Gregory’s books in chronological order.
5. One of my favourite places to go is the cinema; my boyfriend and I occasionally book a day off work and spend the whole day watching films (our record is five in one day!)
6. When I was 14 I fainted down an entire flight of stone stairs at school.  I still cringe when I think about it – and that’s from the embarrassment, not the bruises.
7. I can’t walk in high heels.

And now for my nominations… These are not all health/fitness/weight loss blogs, they all inspire me in different ways.  In no particular order:
