Better Body Jump Start FREE Email Challenge

2018 is upon us, as is the time we all make goals or resolutions for the new year. Let me ask you a question. How many goals do you ever actually keep? Let me make it a little easier…how many do you keep for at least a month? That number is hopefully higher, but the sad truth is that so many of us have GREAT intentions, but then fall off the wagon because we have no support or accountability, or we just plain don’t know where to start.

I want you to be successful in 2018, and actually stick with something. I realized 2 things: 1.) Changes can and need to be SMALL if we want to really make them stick, and 2.) it truly does take a village. I don’t know about you but when I’m working out with a group, I push harder than when left to my own devices. So I figure in health in general, if we are left to fend for ourselves, we may be likely to cheat, skip, and give up all together.


I want to put an END to excuses and an END to goals that never get met. That’s why I created the Better Body Jump Start 7 Day Email Challenge. This is a completely FREE challenge. When you sign up, you will get 7 days worth of emails in your inbox, one each day, with ACTIONABLE tips, motivation, ideas, and calls to action to get you going.



Remember, little changes add up to BIG things, so don’t discredit the small shifts you make in your schedule, habits, and life. I KNOW you can do this, and I want to help you prove to yourself that you can.

The emails may only go on for 7 days, but I CHALLENGE you to keep up the thins I discuss all the way through the month of January. At the end of January if you don’t feel stronger, healthier, more energizes, and better about yourself, then you can stop. BUT, if you do the things I talk about, then I know you will feel amazing and want to keep going!

All you have to do is click this link to sign up (make sure you confirm your subscription when it hits your inbox, and be sure to check your spam!) Please email me with any questions, I’m happy to help any way I can.

Let’s make 2018 the year you become the best version of yourself. To get you really thinking about your goals and what you want out of 2018, I decided to share with you something that I actually started a couple weeks ago but was nervous to share out loud, but I am letting go of fear and taking action in my life.

I started a podcast! It just so happens that my very first episode is all about goal setting. I encourage you to listen to it if you are on the fence about the challenge (it has nothing to do with the challenge itself) or if you are telling yourself NOT to make goals because they never happen for you. After you click the link, check out the December 18th episode. I hope you enjoy, and then will join in the email challenge.


Lorna Jane Fit Challenge

I love a good challenge! Since my marathon is in a month and then I don’t really have much on the schedule, I thought this challenge that lasts until the end of May would be a great one for me!

Fiber Choice Consumer Challenge (WIN Prizes!)

I have come to the end of my 30 days with Fiber Choice’s Get Picky Challenge, but that doesn’t mean I plan to stop taking my fruity bites, and it also doesn’t mean there isn’t some fun to be had!


I want to encourage you to encourage you to take the Fiber Choice consumer challenge, hosted on

It’s time for you to make the switch to Fiber Choice. Why should you do this you ask? Well, aside from my testimonial a week in and thirty days in, there are other incentives as well:

– At the end of the month, one participant will win a $500 gift card!

Be sure to head over to the website NOW (it’s SUPER easy to enter to win the prizes!) Also be sure to check out Fiber Choice on Twitter and Facebook.

I still have a little less than a month of my pregnancy, and I am buying another bottle of fruity bites ASAP so I will be stocked up and ready even after baby M comes. Who doesn’t want to eat gummies every day that taste like candy and give you fiber?!? I really enjoyed the challenge, and the decision to stick with Fiber choice after was a really easy one for me. Please let me know if you have any questions about the products or the challenge!

QOTD: If you could create a fiber gummy, what flavor would it be?

Cross Train or Remain the Same Challenge

I am going to be hosting a challenge for the month of April on Challenge Loop. It’s called “Cross Train or Remain the Same”. Why this challenge? This is something runners and non-runners can participate in for one thing. Particularly for runners, we have a bad habit of wanting to just run all the time and not add any cross training into our schedules. This can lead to burn out and injury. Some days your running muscles just need a rest, but you can still get in a good burn and strengthen other muscles by cross training. Cross training can be anything from yoga, to hiking, to riding your bike. So for the month of April I challenge YOU to cross train twice a week.



Prizes? Oh yes, I will be randomly drawing a winner for a prize at the end of the month from the pool of participants. The winner will receive a Sony wireless Meb Keflezighi, water resistant MP3 player (value $70) Plus a surprise pack of some of MY personal favorite workout and running essentials (value $50).


The challenge will run April 1 – April 30, 2013 and the official hashtag for the challenge is #CrossTrainOrRemainTheSame. To be eligible to win the prize, you must post on the challenge page at least 8 times. (Be sure to use the hashtag if you tweet about your workout!)


Sign up is free on Challenge Loop.

1) The easiest way to sign up is to go straight to my challenge link. Once you  click through you will be able to accept on that page.

2) You can also download the iPhone app “ChallengeLoop”, look for my challenge under “Prize Challenges”, and then accept from there. It’s super easy to check in from your iPhone. If you don’t have an iPhone app, you can still participate on the website!

So all you have to do to be eligible to win is cross train 8 times in the month of April and post on the challenge page each time you do so for a total of at least 8 times. May 1st I will randomly draw a winner and post their name on my blog. Remember, cross training can be any form of cardio workout that isn’t running. Let’s have our whole bodies be strong and in shape for the month of April! Good luck, go and sign up now!

QOTD: Favorite form of cross training?
