18 August: Show us how you are practicing #activeliving today
This is how I live active: breathe. Deeply.
19 August: #ActiveLiving is for life! What part of the future are you most excited for?!
I’m most excited about the future with The Hubs. We plan to hook an Airstream up to the hitch on the back of my truck and travel the U.S.
20 August: Share a photo of you getting sweaty with your favorite workout!
When things get hard, I need to clear my head, or I just want to be alone, I run. I run towards my faith. I run towards my God.
21 August: What’s a short-term goal you’ve set for yourself?
Get my eating under control so I can actually lose weight instead of just maintaining it.
22 August: Favorite healthy snack
23 August: Share your favorite #lornajane clothing piece from Lorna Jane
Totally digging these running tights. Too bad they don’t have anymore in my size.
24 August: Your favorite part of #ActiveLiving
My favorite part of #activeliving is the connection between my body and my spirit. Running allows me to throw off the things that keep my mind, body, and spirit bogged down and focus on the most important prize: eternal life with my savior.
As a whole, this challenge has been crazy fun and I’m sorry to see it come to an end. I’ve found creative ways to represent the prompts on Instagram and I’ve met some inspiring people like The Fit Switch, Exploring Domesticity, and Fitty Duck 13.
I think my two biggest takeaways from this challenge are:
- #ActiveLiving doesn’t have an expiration date: it’s a way of life
- I really need to do something active every day: it improves my entire being
About the Active Living Challenge
The #ActiveLivingChallenge with Lorna Jane is an Instagram/Twitter challenge hosted by Fit Approach to celebrate #BlogFest. This is an opportunity for participants to share what active living means to them. Participants are encouraged to be creative with their pictures and share them wit friends and family.
Participants are asked to post pictures of themselves that reflect that day’s inspiration. And, at the end of each week, write a reflective post on that week’s challenges.
The contest runs from 4~24 August 2014. The grand prize winner of the challenge will receive $500 to shop at #LornaJane.
You can see other participants’ pictures by checking out the hashtags #ActiveLivingChallenge, #FitApproach, or #LornaJane.
