October brings many new challenges…..
Deciding whether or not to still wear flip flops, even though my feet might get cold, I just can’t part with them yet!
Trying not to spend yet another $4 on a Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks for the third time this week…
Attempting to mentally prepare myself for cold weather, snow, dry skin, and the evenings getting dark before 5:00 PM…waaaah.
Trying not to spend unnecessary money on myself and save for the holidays, higher heating bills, and snow tires!
Challenging myself to get outside and run/ walk/ hike as much as possible before it gets too chilly out!
Trying to slow down, look up, and enjoy the foliage before everything turns brown and gray.
But seriously, let us talk about some fun challenges going on in the virtual world this month!
For the month of October, commit to small changes that will make a big difference on your website, social media accounts, and online life. Whether you’re new to the game or could use a freshening up after years in the blog business, this is a challenge for you! Check out Katy’s blog for ideas.
Post your updates on ChallengeLoop and tweet about them using the hash tag #Octoblog!
I updated my Fitspiration page with pictures and some new quotes today!
For the month of October, Lorna Jane personally challenges participants to Nourish their body with healthy, nourishing foods everyday. Snap and post photos of all your healthy meals, recipes, snacks and treats this month on ChallengeLoop, Instagram, and Twitter using the hash tag #lornajanechallenge. It is like a personal food diary, shared with all your fit friends.

Another fun ChallegeLoop challenge! Every day in October, a 5 minute challenge will be posted on ChallengeLoop – either a quick 5 minute workout or an exercise to complete for 5 minutes.
The grand prize will be a swag bag from Under Armour, with a full head to toe outfit and goodies. The two additional prize winners will receive smaller prizes from Under Armour, including one article of clothing and an accessory. Potential additional surprise prizes.
Use hash tags #sweatfor5 #electrafiarmy #IWILL
Check out Bess’s blog or facebook and join her in the challenge to walk AT LEAST 1 mile every day. Do your regular workout as you see fit, but add on at least 1 mile of walking everyday. Leisurely walking. Take deep breaths. De-stress. Enjoy the crisp fall air and the beautiful leaves!
