Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I sat around and did nothing most of the weekend, just like planned (See the picture below, we didn’t move from this spot all day Saturday lol)! Traveling the past two weekends in a row really wore me out and I needed a little bit of time to just rest and recoup from it all. I did run my 4.5 mile on Sunday for my half marathon training though, so it wasn’t a complete lazy weekend.
I have a few things to share with you all today! First of all, I was accepted by Fit Approach to be a Sweat Pink Ambassador. Yay! The Sweat Pink Ambassador’s are a group of women who want to inspire others to be healthy and happy. I joined because I want to inspire other women. I have worked out for years, but just recently realized that I am in love with running. I love the way it makes me feel. It makes me feel strong, it makes me feel like I have the power to do anything. I used to work out to get skinny. I used to work out because I wanted to look like Giselle. Now, I work out for me. I work out because of the way it makes me feel, not the way it makes me look. I want to help other women make the realization that strong is beautiful. I want to help women realize how amazing they can feel if they work out for the right reasons. I am learning right along with other women, but I really think that I can be a good inspiration to so many people. So, with that being said I am so honored to have been picked as a Sweat Pink Ambassador! (Click here if you would like to apply)
Now, the second thing I wanted to talk about is the Move, Nourish, Believe Challenge. It’s being put together by Fit Approach and Lorna Jane and I want all of you to join me! It will be an awesome way to make sure that your new years resolutions don’t go out the window in February. Here is the link to the Facebook group where all of the details are, but for now for the rules:
1. Every day (Mon-Fri) there will be a new challenge. I have posted the calendar below so that you know what each day will bring. You will need to post a picture on Twitter or Instagram of the challenge. I don’t think it has to be you doing the challenge, but at least represent you doing it. Be sure to tag @LornaJaneActive & @FitApproach along with #mnbchallenge #sweatpink #lornajane in order to get credit.
2. At the end of the week you can recap your week on your blog or Facebook page. Be sure to share your post on Twitter and tag @LornaJaneActive & @FitApproach. Every blog post will give you 5 extra points!
3. Every post will equal one point and the winner will be picked at the end of the month. The winner will get a $1000 shopping spree to Lorna Jane. In order to win the $1000 shopping spree, you MUST participate in all of the daily photo challenges.
I would be beyond excited to win this! I need a $1000 shopping spree to get new work out gear! You all know how much I love to shop….and how new work out clothes give me SO much motivation! So, join me, your resident Sweat Pink Ambassador, and complete the challenge with me! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and Twitter to check in on my progress! If you do join in on the fun PLEASE let me know in the comments below so that I can go follow you as well!
