#1800MinuteChallenge [Join Us]

I am so excited about today’s announcement/post/whatever you want to call it. As you know, I’ve been struggling with getting my booty in shape. Yesterday as I was inhaling more chips and dip I came to the conclusion that I am not going to get swimsuit ready without any accountability. And that’s when The 1800 Minute Challenge hit me. The 1800 minute whaaaaaaaat you may be saying. Allowing me to explain.

Starting April 1st through May 31st I am committing myself to being physically active for 1800 minutes total. If you do the math that rounds out to nearly 30 minutes a day. I love this idea because it allows me the freedom to do whatever I want, whenever I want. It doesn’t mean I have to do 30 minutes everyday, but rather 45 minutes one day, zero the next, perhaps 27 the day after, and so on. Also, being physically active doesn’t mean I have to kill myself (but lets be real, any physical activity at this point in my life may just do that) but rather I can choose to take Maggie on an afternoon walk, get a quick workout DVD in, lift weights, run on the treadmill, and so on. As long as I reach my 1800 minutes, I don’t care how it happens.

Here’s where the exciting part comes in. Myself, Alissa from Alissa Circle, Emily from The Freckled Fox, and Alycia from Crowley Party are joining forces in hopes that you will join us. 
All four of us will be focused on motivating, inspiring, and keeping this whole thing exciting for you over the next 60 days. My goal is to have thousands of us all come together over the next 60 days to get healthy, become stronger, and perhaps shrink a few inches off of the places that need it. Swimsuit season is right around the corner whether we want to believe it or not. 
Here’s what you need to know: 
1. You will want to sign up to be a part of the challenge just so we know who is joining in on the fun (and so that you have a chance to win the amazing grand prize at the end of the sixty days). You can register here
2. Starting April 1st, you will be responsible for tracking your own progress. Don’t worry, I’ve gotcha covered. After signing up for the challenge, you will receive a spreadsheet via email from me which will allow you to quickly track and total your minutes! 
3. Throughout the challenge use #1800MinuteChallenge on Instagram or Twitter so that those of us also participating can follow along and cheer you on. Make sure to follow @livinginyellow, @alissamcircle, @thefreckledfox and @alyciagrayce for occasional workout ideas, our favorite playlists, and extra tips + tricks on how to get your 1800 minutes in! 
4. At the end of the challenge (May 31st) those of you who have completed all 1800 minutes will email me your spreadsheet [[email protected]]. On Monday, June 9th one winner will be drawn to receive the #1800MinuteChallenge grand prize. It’s still a secret on what you will be receiving but don’t worry, we will fill you in on the details as time goes on. Keep in mind that the best prize of all will be how great you feel and look at the end of the challenge. Our prizes will just be the cherry on top 😉 
Who’s ready to do this thing?!
