Can you believe it is the final week of the Better Healthy Living Challenge already? July is just flying by. Huge thanks to Angie at Losing It and Loving It for letting me co-host this year.

A quick shout out to our prize sponsors:

Momentum Jewelry for donating a wrap bracelet! (these are my favorite)
Angie at Losing It and Loving It for donating a $50 Amazon e-card
I am donating a 31 Cool Case Thermal (perfect for carrying water and healthy snacks with you)

Thanks to all of you who have joined us for the 2014 Better Healthy Living Challenge. Last week we focused on health. For this final week of the challenge, we want you to choose to focus on something you might have struggled with from week 1 until now. We want you to give it a big push as we finish out the month strong.

Go back to Week 1, Week 2 and Week 3 to see what you might have struggled with and make a goal this week to focus on that ONE thing. And while you are there, if you forgot to check in that week, be sure to do that too.

Here’s a quick refresher:

Week 1: Fitness
Week 2: Nutrition
Week 3: Health

For your chance to win the fun prizes I shared above, be sure to share your challenge updates using the hashtag #BHLchallenge on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. If you’re not on any of these feel free to comment on any of the challenge posts. We like to keep things simple around here and not make you jump through hoops to enter to win.

Thanks again for participating and push through this last week. YOU CAN DO IT! We hope to see you back in 2015!

What will you choose to focus on?

I will be focusing on doing the foot/ankle strengthening exercises that my physical therapist assigned to me.

Have a healthy day!

Monday Motivation

by Glenneth on July 21, 2014

Good morning and Happy Monday! In case you missed it yesterday, here is an update on my eye surgery. Since exercise was mostly non-existent last week and I am just going to play this week by ear, I thought I would do another round of Monday Motivation.

Seriously, screw the scale. It lies and it fluctuates like crazy. Take your measurements instead or find out your body fat. Use how your clothes fit. Or better yet – just listen to how your body FEELS. Let’s say you wake up one morning feeling great. You have been having fun, getting in your workouts, and eating right. Why do you need to see a number on the scale?

Screw The Scale

Trying to lose weight? Patience is key (and definitely not one of my strengths). Set small goals and rewards for your journey. Focus on getting healthier, not skinnier.


Yay! Love these! There are so many types of activities out there that everyone can find something you love. No you don’t have to do CrossFit, but you might love it. Maybe you find you love running, or yoga, or Core Barre. Try different things until you find what works for you, your body, and your schedule.

I loved this one.

Working on a New Me

Don’t just focus on what you want your body to look like, but what you want your life to look like!


Finally, think happy thoughts!

Think Happy

How was your weekend? Share something happy with me!

Have a healthy day!
