1. | Move Your Booty
Let's keep each other going!
Karli and I are putting together a fun little challenge starting on July 1 {five days!} and we'd love for YOU to join! 
The challenge is for each person that participates to hit a 10,000 step goal five out of the seven day week…. that's 50,000 steps a week minimum… 200,000 steps for the month of July.
Totally doable.

To participate you pay $1.
At the end of the month each person will email in their reporting form saying how many steps you got in each day {that will be available after sign up}.
Everyone who hits the goal will be entered to win the money that everyone put in to join - the whole shebang.
Super fun right!?
If you'd like to sign up click HERE.
And believe me, you want to sign up.
Get excited, get your fitbit/pedometer charged, and get ready for some friendly competition!

Also, if you'd like to share this competition with anyone and everyone please do.
The more participants, the more money you have the chance on winning!
Here is an awesome button miss Karli whipped up:

2. | Grilled Buffalo Chicken Salad
With it being in the triple digits lately, I've been on the lookout for some healthy and summerish dinners.
I found this salad on Pinterest and have to make it ASAP!

3. | Elliptical
I've been hopping on the elliptical in the evenings after I put the boys to bed.
Share your tricks with me though!
I get so bored.
I focus so much on every single minute.
Do I need to invest in a TV to mount in front of it?
Will that encourage me to go for longer without even realizing it?
Or shall i just suck it up?
What do you do when you are on a treadmill or elliptical?

4. | Taco Stuffed Zucchini Boats
Before I know it we are going to be bombarded with more zucchini than I know what to do with.
I am being proactive and finding some healthy and delicious uses for them.
This recipe looks super yummy!

5. | Home Workouts
Have you guys seen those videos on Facebook… or other places I'm sure… of people using what they have at home to work out?
Like paper plates. And a slick floor.
Check this out:
I usually like to blame not working out a lot on the fact that we live so far away from a gym.
Clearly this gives me no more excuses.

I'm going to go and attempt this now.
Wish me luck.



  1. Signed up for the get your booty moving! Such a fun way to stay active! Wednesday I started my 100 days active so this will also keep me motivated to get in those 10,000 steps!

  2. What a great way to get moving!!! I dont think we realize just a little walking can go a long way

    That food looks so good!!!!

  3. I watch Netflix on my iPad while on the treadmill. I find series I haven't watched before and will only allow myself to watch them on the treadmill. Friday Nigh Lights was my first, now I'm watching Parenthood. It's a good motivator once I get sucked into a show and can't wait to see what happens next!

  4. Oh yum that salad looks so good! I haven't used the elliptical in a long time but when I used to use it at the gym watching something on TV was a lifesaver!

  5. Podcasts while working out are the way to go! I listen to them at the gym on the treadmill and get sucked in. Before I know it, I'll have done 5+ miles! Serial was addicting and now I'm listening to the follow up to that, Undisclosed. So addicting!

  6. That step challenge is a great idea!

  7. Those recipes look AWESOME! I love zucchini boats but have never thought to make them taco style. Happy Friday!

  8. That buffalo chicken salad looks amazing! I personally detest the elliptical. I find it excruciatingly boring ;) I use a kick ass playlist to get me through my cardio on the treadmill. ~Ree

  9. I love zucchini boats! Really just stuffed vegetables in general. That's a great challenge idea!

  10. That buffalo chicken salad looks AMAZING! I think having a tv really helps me if I'm on an elliptical or treadmill. If you workout at the same time as a favorite show it really goes by fast!

  11. For the elliptical: Netflix is perfect - no commercials, you can just keep cruising through your shows. If you don't want to move/add a TV, though, I suggest audio books. It definitely keeps your mind off of the fact that you're repeating the same motion over and over... and over...

  12. My feet always fall asleep on the elliptical...what the heck!? I usually have to watch something. I put it on Closed Captioning and turn on good workout music.

  13. I love this series! I'm 17 weeks pregnant, so I can't fully commit but I'm totally motivated :)

    I hate working out on machines, but I do it because the only chance I get to workout is when I bring our son to the gym childcare. I always watch tv on the treadmill or elliptical and sometimes use my phone or read a magazine on the bikes. Makes time fly!

  14. The only way I can run on my elliptical for more than 5 minutes is to read a book on my ipad....really passes the time!

  15. At Moon Bitcoin you can recieve free bitcoins. 514 satoshis every 24 hours.
