#MoveNourishBelieve Blogger Challenge Week 2

How did you do for Week 1? I found the challenges to be totally do-able, which was great!!

My favorite day was Thursday, work out with your buddy's. Here are some of my bud's from CrossFit En Fuego. Oh, and I'm wearing my Lorna Jane shirt, too!

Week 2 is all about NOURISHING your body!!


Week Two: Nourish 

2/10: Go Meatless – Skip meat today! Try vegetarian/vegan meals.

2/11: TYLTW! – Take Your Lunch to Work today! Choose a recipe from movenourishbelieve.com to inspire your packed lunch!

2/12: Write it down! – Journal your food today and share your WIAW (what I ate Wednesday) with us!

2/13: Smoothie Day! – Happy Thirsty Thursday! Make a healthy smoothie today!

2/14: Go Raw Friday! – Choose a recipe from movenourishbelieve.com and go raw!

Thursday will be hard for me since I don't like smoothies. Maybe a protein shake can count?

How did you do for week 1?

#MoveNourishBelieve Blogger Challenge!!

This post in sponsored by Fit Approach LLC on behalf of Lorna Jane.

Today is January 28th!!  The first month of 2014 is almost over, and that’s a month since you made those 2014 goals to live a more healthy lifestyle!!  So how are you doing? I'm doing fantastic with my fitness goals. My nighttime snacking still needs to be more tightly controlled and I'm so happy to be able to partner with Lorna Jane, and Sweat Pink for that kick in the butt that it appears I need!

Throughout the month of February there will be fantastic challenges headed your way (see the image at the bottom of the post!!) Be sure to follow them on Twitter here and here. Also check out movenourishbelieve.com and lornajane.com for daily inspiration.

Lorna Jane sent me an outfit this week to help me to power through the upcoming challenge.

And I promptly wore it to CrossFit where I'm sure it helped me in my chest press.

Stay tuned for updates from Lorna Jane, Sweat Pink, and me!! You can follow along on twitter with the hashtag #mnbchallenge and visit these other amazing fitness and health bloggers for further inspiration!

Lorna Jane #holidayfitlist

Disclaimer: As a Fit Approach Sweat Pink Ambassador, I was selected to participate in a #HolidayFitList campaign. I received fitness apparel from Lorna Jane and a copy of Move Over Sugar  as compensation for my participation.  All opinions shared are my own.


I've been trying to get a gift list together for my husband and kids, but I got a bit lucky that I received some of my "must have" items a bit early. What was on my list this year??

Without a doubt, the Polar Loop. An amazing fitness tool that is so helpful in keeping me accountable hour by hour, day by day. I absolutely love it. This sleek and stylish tool is life changing.

 I also love my new Skora Running shoes! They are so pretty and will match with all my fitness clothing!

With a pair of good shoes, and my Polar, I have everything I need to live a fit lifestyle. Though a set of these would be super awesome.

And a good jump rope would come in handy, too.


And NICE workout clothing!! Normally I workout in clothing from Target or Wal-Mart, so I feel super fortunate to have been chosen as a #HolidayFitList blogger by Fit Approach. A handful of the Sweat Pink Ambassadors got to choose 3 items from the Lorna Jane collection; a top, a bottom, and a bra.

I love pink, but at the time of my selection there was no pink available, so I went with Pink's sister, purple! A beautiful purple shirt, black capri pants and a purple sports bra. It's lovely and I can't wait to wear it tomorrow! I don't think I've ever sweated in something so pretty Smile

You can purchase Lorna Jane clothing for that special someone in your life this Christmas with a 20% off promo code: SHOPLJ

In addition to the clothing,  I also received a copy of Lorna Jane’s ebook, Move Over Sugar.  Which is great since I follow the NSNG (no sugar no grain) lifestyle. The book is a collaborative effort by the Move Nourish Believe sisterhood and offers great suggestions to eliminate refined sugar from your normal diet.  Instead of using artificial sweeteners, Lorna offers seven great natural sugar substitutes and nine steps to change your diet to reduce your sugar consumption. All the recipes featured in the book will aid in reducing sugar consumption without losing flavor.  

You can get your own copy of Move Over Sugar by clicking HERE.
