My favorite posts and a holiday challenge

On Monday, I mentioned that I’m at the one-year mark of the start of this blog, and I’d like to share some of my favorite posts from the year.  Partly because it is fun for me to go back through and remember these, and partly because I need a freebie post.  Yesterday was one of those days… pee on the floor, pee on the couch, rushing from one place to the next, and a boring CPR course claiming my whole evening.  Sigh.  Good thing it’s Friday.

Thanks for all the feedback, by the way! I am glad many of you are interested in hearing more nutrition info as I study this year.  I would love to write more about it, but don’t want to veer off too sharply from the course this blog has been on.

So here we go…

Finally, I wanted to give a shout out to my friend Amanda and her fabulous Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge! She does an incredible job hosting this challenge every year and has some great prizes and incentives.  The goal is to see how many points you can rack up for being active and eating well, from November 19- January 5th.

Monday is the last day to sign up! Get more information and register on the HBBC site. 

I’m linking up with Jill for Fitness Friday.

Do you struggle to stay active and eat healthy through the holidays? Are you doing HBBC?

  1. Running will become the main part of our routine I can hang onto over the holidays, and hold on I will be with white knuckles! I like routine what can I say 😉

  3. Looking through all of those amazing recipes now! Yummmo! You’ve shared some awesome ones!! Thank you and welcome to the sisterhood of sweatin’ pink! Spa love!

  4. I love this recap, especially since I just started reading your blog and I’m seeing most of those posts for the first time. As for the holidays, I do okay. I allow myself treats here and there and even some days that are quite horrid, but I know a day here or there won’t affect me much. Gluten intolerance really limits what I can have so that helps tremendously.
