Well the last few weeks have been pretty crazy with sick kiddos, lots of work and getting sick myself. I managed to keep up with the challenges (for the most part) for the Move, Nourish, Believe challenge, and am finally getting a chance to write about it!
It was really fun to have a challenge through most of the month of February. I really enjoy having a new challenge each day to keep things fresh, and to try new things!
Week 2: Nourish!
Monday – Go Meatless – Skip meat today! Try vegetarian/vegan meals.
Today was filled with lots of yummy meatless meals! I was especially excited about making blueberry pancakes!
Tuesday – TYLTW! – Take Your Lunch to Work today! Choose a recipe from movenourishbelieve.com to inspire your packed lunch!
I always take my lunch to work, so this wasn’t anything new for me. However, I was sick all day with nauseousness and no appetite, so I didn’t get a chance to eat it.
Wednesday – Write it down! – Journal your food today and share your WIAW with us!One thing I love about apps is the My Fitness Pal app! It helps me keep track of what I am intaking and keeps me accountable with many other healthy minded friends! If you are looking for a simple way to track your intake, check it out! You can enter the information on a smart phone or a computer!
Thursday – Smoothie Day! – Happy Thirsty Thursday! Make a healthy smoothie today!
Smoothies are my FAV way to get a healthy dose of fruits and veggies! I love that you can mix and match so many combinations to make delicious drinks!
Friday – Go Raw Friday! – Choose a recipe from movenourishbelieve.com and go raw!
This was a great day filled with yummy raw foods. Even though it was Valentine’s day, I did manage to stay raw!
Week Three: Believe!
Monday – Spoil Yourself! – Do something just for you today! Take a walk, go to yoga, spoil yourself!
I was not feeling great and I took full advantage of the twins nap time and I took a 2 hour nap! It was so wonderful!!
Tuesday – 5 Mindful Minutes – Do good to your body, meditate for 5 minutes and find your zen.
The twins were sick and Mr. R did NOT want to take a nap, so my meditating minutes happened while he finally fell asleep in my arms. There is just something so peaceful about a little one asleep in your arms!
Wednesday – Be Happy – Show us your happy place!
I have several happy places. For the most part, it is the BEACH for me. Especially the beaches in Costa Rica!
The beach, private beach in Costa Rica, finishing a race, the beach, the hubs, traveling, meeting people I admire, the beach and more beach!
Thursday – Thankful Thursday – Let us know what you are thankful for!
I have much to be thankful for!
The beach, friends, flowers/nature/my faith, ability to run races, my hubs, quiet time, health, ability and resources to travel, my education.
Friday – Share the love – S/O to your #1 supporter/motivator!
My #1 supporter is my hubs! He has been there for me through so much the last few years. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful supportive man by my side!
I hope everyone who participated had a really great time, and enjoyed the challenges as much as I did! I am really looking forward to the Twitter party this coming week and to see who the winner of the $1,000 shopping spree to Lorna Jane is! I know I was encouraged and inspired each day by the amazing entries in the challenge, and I have no doubt the winner will be tough to pick!
Thank you to the Fit Approach ladies and Lorna Jane for putting together such a fabulous 3 week challenge! You all are a daily inspiration 🙂
