i liked it.

in tips

of all the social media platforms out there, i would say instagram is my favorite. apparently i would rather look at pictures than read words.. go figure.

if you follow me on instagram, you have already seen my shots. they are also scrolling in the sidebar to the right. so i won’t be sharing my instagram pics today. instead, i want to share some that i have liked lately. who knows, maybe you will like them, too, and find some new accounts to follow.

i didn’t always know that you could see all the photos you’ve liked on IG, but i discovered that feature awhile back and it’s pretty handy when looking for a particular photo. to see the photos that you have liked on instagram, touch your profile logo (far lower right on the screen.)

image

next, touch the gear in the top right corner.

image

finally, touch “photos you’ve liked” to display all the photos.

image

tada! did you know about this feature?

image

here are a handful of my favorite likes lately along with the instagrammer who posted it and a little bit about them. (also, click the picture to be directed to the source.)

image
//via 1fitfoodie. naomi is a babe! she’s an accomplished bikini competitor & trainer. her account is always full of fitness tips, motivational thoughts, and delicious clean eats. this particular quote caught my eye because i am a big believer in competing with yourself and nobody else.

 

image
//via beautytalkwithsj. sarah jane dresses suuuper cute. i love this layered look. she has also recently lost 40 pounds! she’s amazing!! i follow her for fashion and fitness inspiration. oh, and you may be doing a double take if you follow truly jess.. they are twin sisters. follow them both for a double dose of instagram awesome.

image
//via caitsplate. meal time isn’t just fuel for this photographer. cait manages to turn every bite into beautiful artwork. i love all her crisp, clean food photos. these vegan soba noodles look too pretty to eat! but i am sure she still managed to find a way.

 

image
//via dogsofinstagram. no need for an explanation here. i am a crazy dog lady.. i love every picture they post! these stacked up pups melt my heart.

image

//via powercakes. kasey posts mainly food photos, but this thought she put up today stuck out to me BIG TIME this morning. i think it may be one of my new favorite mantras. marshall has been urging me to focus on the present rather than worry about the past, so these words really resonated with me. in addition to thoughtful mantras, kasey posts lots of plant-based meals and occasional workout tips.

image

//via chobani. chobani’s april fools’ day post was good for a laugh! this fake flavor had people in an uproar. the comments on the picture are what i liked the most. i love following chobani’s instagram feed for creative concoctions found around the community. they are always sharing fan photos.

image

//via fitamysuzanne. i actually only recently started following amy because a friend of a friend or something liked one of her photos and it showed up in my news feed. i clicked over and realized she’s a utah local. in the past six months, she has had a major fitness transformation and i was so floored by it that i had to follow!

 

Qs~

1. what is your favorite social media platform?

2. what is the last thing you took a photo of?

Woohoo! Thanks for the shout out! So honored :)

Erica April 3, 2013 at 7:06 pm

YES! Instagram rocks. I want to do a post like this. Obviously the last picture I took was of Kay ;)

lindsay April 3, 2013 at 7:15 pm

ha i totally wanted that chobani, just to try. Great april fools! and yes, love instagram. Deb got me hooked. Go figure

Janetha April 4, 2013 at 9:10 am

haha ewwww.

LOVE DEB. and you!

Lee April 3, 2013 at 7:15 pm

I like instagram a lot, but I think I’ll go with good ol’ facebook as my favorite.

Nicole @ Fruit 'N' Fitness April 3, 2013 at 7:20 pm

I’m still getting used to instagram but i love it! I did not know about the likes feature! The last thing I took a picture of was my lunch today, which was posted to instagram.

Michelle @ Eat Move Balance April 3, 2013 at 7:38 pm

I just joined Instagram, and like you, I really like it. better than twitter, for sure. The last thing I posted was a picture of my new pup. He was cracking me up tonight, destroying his new toys already.

Janetha April 4, 2013 at 9:10 am

love that! i am such a sucker for dog photos

Bria @ West of Persia and Yoga With Bria April 3, 2013 at 7:39 pm

I am new to Instagram and digging it. Thanks for the tips and sharing some cool peeps to follow.

Ja @Ja on the RUN April 3, 2013 at 7:58 pm

I love instagram the best too. Sometimes i find myself stalking at some country’s actor. I don’t why. Lol!

Katie April 3, 2013 at 8:08 pm

I had no idea you could look at the photos you’ve liked! Thanks for the lesson!

Janetha April 4, 2013 at 9:09 am

no problem, friend. see you SOON.

tj April 3, 2013 at 8:33 pm

I luvs me some IG! I like doing the photo a day challenge that FatMumSlim created. Fun way to snap pics each day. :)

Janetha April 4, 2013 at 9:09 am

i used to do those! but i get a little lazy.. they are fun, though, i agree!

Nicole C April 3, 2013 at 10:34 pm

Instagram for sure! I get bored with Facebook and have found so many inspirational people on Instagram. As for the photo, oddly enough it was one of myself, flexing because I saw my shoulder muscle poppin! I was proud.

Roxy says hi to penny and randy. She’s on my lap and may be to blame for any typos because I can barely see my iPad.

Janetha April 4, 2013 at 9:09 am

bring them to blend :)

Nicole C April 4, 2013 at 10:36 am

I’d LOVE to but the lady I am staying with is afraid of dogs. You’d squeal over Roxy and all 9.2 lbs of her, she’s so tiny! Kronus is a jerk though and doesn’t play nice with other dogs, so he is limited to where he goes. Not to mention some peeps maybe scared of him haha!

Kristina April 3, 2013 at 10:54 pm

I’m an instagram girl too. It’s my time to mindlessly space out.
My eyes got all big and disgusted with that yogurt flavor. You got me, Chobani. Good one!

RainStorm April 4, 2013 at 1:10 am

Oh dear – I haven’t played with Instagram yet! I mostly use Facebook and twitter. And a teeny bit of Pinterest (although I don’t really “get” Pinterest). My favourite at the moment is twitter.

The last thing I took a pic of was some panda slippers! I didn’t buy them but wanted proof that I’d seen them.

Janetha April 4, 2013 at 9:08 am

Have you read my Pinterest tutorial? It may help you “get” it a little :) http://mealsandmovesblog.com/2012/01/03/pinterested/

Jan @ Sprouts n Squats April 4, 2013 at 4:16 am

Pinterest by far! I’m obsessed. I need to make time to actually cook and make half the things I pin :)

Janetha April 4, 2013 at 9:08 am

i am right there with you :)

Jessica April 4, 2013 at 6:23 am

holy cow, does fitamysuzanne have a blog? she looks fantastic!

Janetha April 4, 2013 at 9:07 am

i dont know! i dont think so…

Carly @ Snack Therapy April 4, 2013 at 8:09 am

What?! I had no idea I could go back and look through those pictures! You’ve just revolutionized my IG life!

Janetha April 4, 2013 at 9:07 am

haha yay!

Linz @ Itz Linz April 4, 2013 at 8:11 am

ah i did not know that at all!!! last photo i took a picture of was of my protein shake this morning of my bsn chocolate milkshake! :) :)

Janetha April 4, 2013 at 9:07 am

i saw it! hehe

Amy Q April 4, 2013 at 9:41 am

WOW- I was doing so well sticking with 2 months of GPP- then I got really sick in August and fell off the wagon. I’ve been thinking about it again- when fitamysuzanne’s IG pics just convinced me that there’s no time like the present………….I gots to get back to that amazing plan!

Annette@FitnessPerks April 4, 2013 at 9:47 am

I like Instagram & pinterest a lot too. I like pictures :)

betty April 4, 2013 at 9:50 am

Roz@weightingfor50 April 4, 2013 at 11:47 am

I’m a pinterest girl myself. Last photo I took? My breakfast. Last photo I took that I loved. My kitty last night. (not on a plate)
Have a great day Janetha.

cookie April 4, 2013 at 11:54 am

I certainly did not know that!

My sister gets a the-cat-is-alive picture from me everyday. She adores that cat.

Naomi(1fitfoodie) April 4, 2013 at 5:41 pm

xoxoxo

Tara April 6, 2013 at 11:29 am

Hey, when I clicked on the Instagram link in your post it took me to someone else’s page. Just a FYI! :)

elizabeth April 9, 2013 at 7:08 am

Thank goodness I am NOT alone! Instagram is my FAVORITE social media platform, hands down. The last one you mentioned, fitamysuzanne, OMG is her transformation phenomenal! The last thing I took a picture of is my dog, he’s too dang cute not to take a daily picture or two or three. ;)
