Hopefully it is not a surprise that I am a #SweatPink Ambassador!  I love the sweat pink founders and the amazing ladies I have met as being a part of this group!  One thing I really love is all the challenges they put together for us!  Not only are they fun & butt kicking, but they introduce different companies to us!  It is a win-win all around!

The challenge for the entire year kicked off on Monday!  So far this week the mini challenges have been pretty great!
Monday, 1/12: 30 sec. planks (any variation)
Tuesday, 1/13: Run or walk for at least 1 mile
*after not being able to run for a few weeks due to my hip issues, I was pretty stoked to get in a mile of mostly SLOW jogging*
Wednesday, 1/14: 10 burpees (any variation)
*Did not get a picture of this…Haha*
Thursday, 1/15:  20 squats (any variation)
*Body Pump means a LOT of squats!!!*
Friday, 1/16: #FREEFriday – choose something to share and tag #NoExcuses
If you follow me on Instagram, I will be posting about this tomorrow!

Saturday, 1/17: share a healthy snack or recipe

IMG_5751Did you do Mad Libs as a kid?  We did as a family growing up and they were always hilarious!!! I wish I still had some of the ones we did then!
Well the awesome Sweat Pink gals put together one for this challenge!

Wanna join in the fun? It’s easy! Just…

  1. Copy the questions below
  2. Fill in the blanks with your own answers
  3. Tag 3 friends to share how they’ll make 2015 the year of #NoExcuses!

Hey 2015, it’s me, Esther, Chocolate Runner Girl (nickname, spirit animal, real name, blog name)

This year I would like to complete a triathlon, get my PT cert, and reach my goal weight. 

It would also be super duper awesome if I also run a 10 min mile this year. It’s not a resolution, though, just a reminder to myself to try and have the best year yet because I’m totally worth it!

The thing I am looking forward to most this year is a mission trip (more details to come!!!)

I’ll use the one thing that truly gets me out of bed in the morning which is my green tea to help me get up, get my tush moving, (verb) and get after my #NoExcuses 2015. Speaking of excuses (ahem), my very favorite excuse is working out alone and I have used it to get out of going to the gym and working out by myself on more than 476,938 (number) occasions. I vow to move my body and be more healthy this year even if it means I have to be on my own to complete  workout!

Even if my alarm clock gets eaten by the (invisible) dog in the middle of the night, I’ll still bust my butt!

I will stop blaming the hubs [ex: kids, dog, husband] for eating the rest of the chocolate when everyone knows it was really me.  😉

My work schedule [job, hair, car, husband, kids] is not the reason I make excuses. I will show my work schedule [same as before] who’s boss this year and get my run [type of sweaty activity] on (even if it is at 5 am)!

I know that any kind of workout [type of workout] is better than laying on the couch eating chocolate.

I will reward myself by getting new workout gear as I reach new goals!

#NoExcuses 2015 has just begun and already I am imagining myself a winner. I can’t wait to rock a Quantum Pullover (article of clothing) from Augusta Active. I can’t wait till my sweaty friends are jealous of how fresh, clean and sparkly (adj) I am between workouts with help from ShowerPill body wipes. I can see myself rocking warrior 2 [yoga pose / workout move] in new Tie One On Leggings [article of clothing from Actio926] from Actio926 and looking fit and fly while doing it. And of course, I’ll be taking my workouts to the next level and improving my muscles [noun] with my new ActivMotion Bar to help me train for my next  half marathon [distance] race with Sasquatch Racing.

Oh, and let’s not forget how amazing my pullover & leggings [article of clothing] will smell in/ during my runs [favorite type of workout] after washing with some WIN Detergent. And lastly, I’ll keep rocking my 2015 with clean eats and nutrition from Beaming with Health!

Now it’s your turn! Simply fill in the BOLD parts and share with everyone how you’re going to take charge, kick butt and make 2015 your best year yet with #NoExcuses!
