Check out These Over the Top Blogs

Thanks to Amazon Runner for thinking of me and awareding the "Over the Top" award.  In accepting I need to
1. Answer 35 questions and 2. Pass it on to 6 other blogs. Keeping my answers to only one word will be tough, but not as tough as only choosing only 6 blogs.  So I'm taking the liberty of 'doubling down" and picking 12!  And I'm still worried that I've missed someone....

 I tried to pick those I follow regularly that I find consistantly inspiring, motivating and challenging - and that don't already have it. If you are listed here, please snag the award with a right-click, place it on your blog and do what you gotta do.  Or not.  :-)
1.Diane at Fit to the Finish
2.Fearless Missy
3.A Cake for a Wife
4. Diana's Weight Loss Journey
5.Jack Sh*t Gettin' Fit
6.South Beach Steve
7.Irene at Livin' Large
8. Kat at Secrets to Losing 100 lbs
9. Coley at Sugar Shakes
10. Pippa's Porch
11.Losin' this Dang Fat
12 Fat Daddy Rants
