The Best of the Best!!

Happy Sunday,

I am having the most terrific weekend! The weather is warm and I have spent time outside each and every day. Yesterday I ran 4.25 glorious miles and really didn’t want to quit. Today we took Miss O for an XC ski. She had the best time.


My very first Beachbody Challenge, A NEW YEAR, NEW YOU,  is about to start and I have 10 participants! I am so excited to help these ladies learn to live a healthier lifestyle and hopefully they will love fitness as much as I DO. To be honest my heart is bursting with JOY right now.


Even though my challenge has yet to officially start I have personally challenged them to get outside and MOVE even if its just a little bit.

I have also been sharing motivational quotes and images daily. I really want this journey to be the beginning of a TOTAL lifestyle change not just a diet and some exercise. I want them leaving being different than when they started. I want them to LOVE themselves and feel their own JOY towards themselves.


I wanted to SHARE with them today some of the MOST INSPIRING women in my healthy living journey.



So here you have it, my short list of awesome, totally inspiring, life changing BLOGGERS!!

In NO particular order:

Amanda from Run to the Finish, Amanda is one of my first fitness bloggers. She is a runner, coach, gratitude specialist and over all fitness motivator. She has challenged me several times with challenges like Holiday Bootie Busters, Spring Bootie Busters, Clean and Lean and now Holiday Sweat. She has taught me the importance of injury prevention and how to properly fuel my body. She is an amazing coach who helps runners cross the finish line!

  1. Wow! Thank you! I will forever remember your kind words.

    Congratulations on your first challenge group! I’m hoping Beachbody will come out with a new program soon. Is there somewhere I can sign up for your updates about your next challenge?

    Thank you and congrats again friend 🙂


    1. Thanks for the kind words! I am excited to help these ladies get fit. I have another group planned for the beginning of February. I’ll keep you posted on that. As for a NEW program, so far its just been p90 and Max 30. I personally LOVE Tony Horton and X3. i know there is an extreme version of 21 day fix coming out in February too. Same idea for portion control but tougher workouts!


  2. This is so sweet, Jennifer! Thank you! These are some of my favorite inspiring women, too. And how awesome that you’re kicking off your own group! They are lucky ladies!


    1. Thanks for reading and commenting. I was not sure how this post would be received. I am happy it was loved 🙂 I look forward to your 5 by the 5th and contemplating the January challenge!
