Week 1 #Activelivingchallenge

A week ago I decided to join Lorna Jane and Fit Approach in their Active Living Challenge. Each day Fit Approach posts a daily "task" and you have to post your response via Instagram and Twitter. This week seemed to fly by but I'm happy to be participating until the 25th.
Of course there's an amazing prize involved! The winner will receive a $500 shopping spree for Lorna Jane Active Wear! Pretty awesome huh?

So here's what you missed if you aren't participating or haven't seen my IG feed.

Day 1: Post a photo of your favorite move this summer. I love the core workout I get from planks! I can hold a high plank for just over 2:20!

Day 2: Post a photo of your favorite healthy meal. To go along with my favorite summer move, I posted one of my favorite summer salads. Romaine lettuce, strawberries, feta cheese, cucumbers and Brianna's blush wine vinaigrette.

Day 3: Share what active living means to you. Active Living means I'm a healthier, happier mom and wife.

Day 4: Share your favorite place to relax. I feel so much better after some time alone in my room, doing yoga, praying, meditating and reading the Bible.

Day 5: Post a selfie after a sweaty workout. This was me after Insanity, pure cardio.

Day 6: Share a photo of you "moving it" with your friends. Well, I always workout and run solo, so I posted a picture of my walking buddy and I walking on the canal.

Day 7: Post a photo of something you're grateful for. I shared a photo of my husband. He's been so strong through our struggle of unemployment. He's still a wonderful provider, Spiritual leader and my best friend. :)

I'm looking forward to another week of challenges. From Fit Approach, not life ;-)

I hope everyone is having a great Monday!


  1. Cool seeing your photos from the challenge! That's awesome that you can hold a plank so long. I'm still trying to get up to a minute for a low plank. I love strawberries in salads :)

    1. Low planks are hard! If I do a low plank before a high, I struggle to hold the high plank for over a minute and a half. Summer fruits are my favorite!

  2. Holding a plank for over 2 minutes is seriously awesome! I am so weak in that area, I doubt I could go more than 20 seconds, I know that sounds terrible, but it's honest!
    Love all your photo's, you guys just look like an amazing family!

    1. Aw thanks!
      Its actually easier to increase time than you may think! Its such a mental game for me haha I get pretty competitive with myself.


I enjoy hearing from everyone so please, leave a comment!
