The Gift of Fitness~A December Challenge

Wow, December 1st already. Where has this year gone?!?!? I know I have been insanely busy but it just seems like yesterday that I was curled up with my family watching Dick Clark's New Years Eve waiting for my Weight Watchers commercial to air nationally. Was that really almost one year ago?

Throughout the course of this year, my personal fitness has changed. I added a LOT more strength training, and cut back on some of the cardio, involved my kids and husband a lot more and 2012 has really been my best fitness year yet! But this post is not going to be about me! It's going to be about YOU!!  Denise from Run DMT and I are going to challenge each and every one of you to MOVE in December. Why wait until January 1, 2013 to start your resolution to be fit? START TODAY! Start DECEMBER 1st. Get a jump start on living a healthy, fit lifestyle! Spread the word by regifting our fitness challenge.  Share #fitgift with your readers and followers.  Blog about it and add the button to your sidebar.  Tweet it too.  “I’m giving myself the Gift of Fitness this December with @denisermt and @JennyMetamorFit. #fitgift” 






13 in 2013

I love a good challenge, and this one seems as good as any!! 13 races in 2013!! Oh ya, I am all over that. And considering I've already signed up for 4 different races (or is it 5) in 2013, I'm nearly 1/2 way done...with signing up anyway. I still have to actually run them. Cool


  1. Run 13 registered virtual or real life races in 2013.
  2. The number of participants will not be limited.
  3. Prizes throughout the year. Hint: Some of my favorite running and fitness products!
  4. We have set up a 13 In 2013 Facebook group to support and encourage each other and share the experience.
  5. To support everyone reaching their goal Jen and I will host 4 virtual races throughout the year. The first virtual race will be in February. More information coming soon.
  6. Share with Instagram and Twitter using the #13in2013 hashtag.


Dirty Girls

Now i’ve lost my mind, yeah and i’ve lost control
And i’ve lost the feeling in my arms, and i’m a lost soul

Make the most of me baby don’t spit me out,
This is how dirty girls get clean,

Don’t leave me now, listen to her lust yeah, hear her disgrace
Listen to the fragile things, as they all breakwatch from the comfort,
The comfort of your home, through the eyes of sleep baby
down down we go


That's right!! Down down down we go to the Little Everglades Ranch for the DIRTY GIRL MUD RUN!! Dirty Girl is bringing their WOMEN'S ONLY mud run series to Florida in 2013. They will be in Tampa on February 9th. I'll be doing the race along with a bunch of my girlfriends and I am SO EXCITED!! This will be my 5th mud run in ONE YEAR! They are addicting, and a blast! We've signed up for the 8am wave which I am less than thrilled about. Not because it's early (come on' I have 3 little kids, 8am is LATE for me Wink) but because February in Florida is COLD!! I will probably lose the feeling in my arms, but I certainly won't lose my soul!  I think I'm going to have to add a little splash of somethin' somethin' in my drink to warm up my body just a little bit.

If you want to join us on this muddy, cold, crazy adventure use the code FLBLOGGUEST and you will get 20% off any Florida run. Also, if you register for any of the Florida Dirty Girl runs between Dec. 5th and 11:59 PM on Dec. 24th you will automatically be entered to win a gym membership of your choice valued up to $500. That's a pretty sweet deal. And I know a lot of my readers are looking for new gyms right now, so what better way to try to find your new "woman cave" than by getting a little dirty??

You can "like" Dirty Girl on Facebook, and/or follow Dirty Girl on Twitter

So come on down down down, have fun, get muddy, and have a warm adult beverage. It's like a day at the spa...only better.
