Challenge: I CAN…Be Active

It’s that time of year again when people say they are busy but aren’t too busy to eat. The holidays are about spending time with family and friends and buying gifts, so why not give yourself a gift? The holidays are filled with treats and great food so practice moderation with those foods. BUT I’m also asking you to get active!

My best friend Mandie has already jumped on the challenge and she’s been working out to shed some pounds and just get an active lifestyle. Why can’t you do the same over the holiday season? There’s A LOT of talk about gaining weight over the holidays but I want to focus on something else, BEING ACTIVE. I’m not saying I want you to gain weight by eating your weight in your pie of choice. I’m asking you to give yourself one of the greatest gifts you can give by starting or continuing on the road to a healthy active lifestyle. Starting November 15 – December 31, 2013, I would like people to just get up and get active. (There will be another part of this challenge starting in January 2014.)

Every week you’ll come back here and leave a comment on the blog post telling me what activities you took part in the previous week! I want everyone to set a goal at the beginning of the week and really try to obtain that goal. I am asking that you have a min of 2 days of being active. It can be anything: Zumba, spinning, running, walking, dancing, biking, gym workouts…anything that will get your heart rate up and could qualify as EXERCISE!


Each week, I’ll give out a prize to one random person who left their comment on the blog post. The prizes will change from week to week! Your first check-in will be November 24, 2013 so stay tuned for that. So what do you need to do join the challenge? Fill out this form, set your goal for the first 10 days and come back on November 24th to tell me what you did to meet that goal. You can also FB, tweet or e-mail me pictures to show me how committed you are to the cause.

Here are your check-in dates:

November 24, 2013
December 1, 2013
December 8, 2013
December 15, 2013
December 22, 2103

This is a fun challenge to show how just a little bit of physical activity can make a big difference. Are you ready to accept the challenge? Please sign the form and commit to being active!
