Active Living Challenge has Ended

IMG_3517

The active living challenge on twitter and Instagram has ended. I am kinda sad. It helped me savor different moments through pictures and really think about how important active living really is to me and why.

My last few pictures were super fun so I am going to share them on the blog. The first picture above was in answer to my “favorite part of active living.” I love that through active living you can meet so many like-minded people. I work with ladies that love to workout so we literally exercise together during our lunch breaks when we are all in the office. I have also connected through the blogosphere with other fitness/health bloggers. And of course, even walk and talks with family and friends are kick butt. I connect with someone so much better on a walk than I do in front of a buffet line. Seriously!

Below is my 2nd pic of a motivational quote. I am totally digging it right now! We always have room to learn and grow.

My third pic is in answer to the question, “How do you get more out of each day.” I press pause and savor each moment that I am in. I think less and live more. It’s so important to remember this, because it can be so easy to get caught up in the rat race and focus on less important things.

My fourth picture is my career goal. The bubble in the picture says it all. I know one of my career purposes is to help others get and stay healthy.

My fifth picture is something I am looking forward to in the near future. I am literally looking forward to giving these two a hug in Colorado. They have been there since June and I miss them like crazy! I am also looking forward to some hiking adventures with them while I am there visiting.

My sixth picture is a picture of my short term goal. I kept it SMART! 😉 I have been saving up this year to get yoga certified and hope to make the dream a reality sometime next year. I am already Piyo certified and teach Pure Barre, but I have always wanted to get yoga certified. It is more intense (and therefore also more expensive), but I am really excited about it.

My seventh picture is one of my favorite snacks these days. I like to eat Plain Greek yogurt with cacao powder, a tad of dark chocolate chips and chopped walnuts, plus 1/2 a sliced banana. Yum!

My last picture is one of my favorite pieces from Lorna Jane. I am in love with almost all of Lorna Jane’s inspirational tanks, but lately I have loved seeing this jacket. Anything that reminds me of the beach is good in my book. The palm trees make me smile!

Lorna Jane promotes active living. I love what the brand stands for. I did not get paid for this post nor was it mandatory for me to write this post. I just wanted to provide a weekly update on the Active Living Challenge. To find out more about active living through Lorna Jane, visit MoveNourishBelieve or LornaJane.
