After many failed attempts, I can tell you there are many ways to guarantee you won’t wake up early to workout, but there is only one proven way to make sure you do wake up early to workout and turn it into a habit.
Thanks to BeFit and Fit Approach, I’m super excited to have been given the opportunity to Jumpstart some healthy habits in 2016 and #BeFitAllYear. I’m even more excited to share the FREE 30-day workout calendar and videos with you, as well as give you a chance to win some of the BeFit goodies they’ve given me!
Confession: My 2016 health and weight loss goals have been off to a slow start. If I’m being completely honest, I’ve continued to gain weight after the holidays…
After losing 60lbs after my second child, I have really struggled to keep the scale going down. In the past year, I’ve added a part-time job to full-time staying home with the kids and the pressure has really decreased the amount of focus I’ve placed on my health. I’m feeling pretty discouraged lately…
I’m really feeling energized with this BeFit 30-Day Challenge. The best part is that the tools for the workouts are completely free! BeFit has put together an amazing series of videos, along with a workout calendar to help keep you on track.
I started this morning with the Dynamic Strength workout. It was fantastic! I woke up early, wandered through the dark to my office and got in a short and sweet strength training workout. Next to the tools being free, my favorite part is that these workouts are quick and effective – most are between 10-15 minutes. Toward the end of the 30 days, we’ll start to double up the workouts, but they still don’t take a huge chuck of time. Love that!
As a Sweat Pink Ambassador, I also got the chance to try out some of the great BeFit Nutritional Products. We have Chocolate Whey Protein, a PreWorkout, and Burn – a supplement to boost fat loss. I haven’t tried them yet, but I will keep you posted as I update you about my progress during the 30 days. For now, how about I open up the giveaway and give you a chance to win some for yourself!?
So, you know the workouts are free, short, and guided by a free calendar… So, who’s going to join me and #BeFitAllYear!?!
I’m really enjoying having something to commit to, and I’ve had no problem getting it in each day.
I don’t necessarily think there have been any major changes for the kettlebells alone and my eating has been so-so, but I’m down about 7lbs in these 25 days. Just having something small to focus on helps with each healthy decision I make during the day. If I could get those crazy snack attacks under control, I’d really make some headway.
I’m really enjoying this challenge and look forward to the next 75 days.

We’re all busy.
Summer is an especially busy time with travel and activities. We spend the majority of our time at the cabin, and we recently bought a new camper so there won’t be many weekends spent at home this summer.
I’m sharing some of my favorite ways to get a workout in while traveling, and the best equipment I found for summer travel.
One of my favorite things about this little blog of mine is that it has given me the opportunity to join some pretty amazing communities. SweatPink is by far one of my favorite communities I’ve found through blogging. The ladies of FitApproach are so sweet and it really sets the tone for all the ambassadors. I can’t wait to meet them and present at BlogFest this summer!
Another great thing about SweatPink are the review opportunities. I was fortunate enough to receive a box of Vega Sport Energy Bars to review and I have loved them!! There were so many awesome products to pick from as part of the Fuel Your Better campaign, but I chose the Energy Bars because I love a good bar and, with two kiddos two and under, I could definitely use a little sustained energy.
This bar quickly became a staple before a run. Now, I’m not a long-distance runner, but I am a busy Momma and this bar quickly gives me the energy I need to tackle any portion of the day.
The Vega Sport Energy Bar is especially great for the Momma who has just gotten the kiddos up from a nap and wants to rush them into the stroller for a run but realizes that quick lunch a couple hours ago just isn’t going to cut it!
One problem: the kids love them as much as I do! How much do they have to eat before I can justify opening another bar???
I tried the Chocolate Coconut Almond bar and it is amazing! Super rich chocolately flavor and delicious!
A couple more things about the bars:
27 g carbs from whole food ingredients
High and low glycemic carbohydrates for immediate and sustained energy
1 g Omega-3
no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners
I’ve taken them everywhere with me! Vega Sport Energy Bars were my go-to for a crazy wedding weekend. I snacked on one before the rehearsal and brought plenty to share in case we had some dragging bridesmaids on the big day.
I also took one with me today to write this post. What better way to get though some library time over lunch?
Better get back to it… Who am I kidding? I had that thing devoured in moments an hour ago!
