Read, Run, Repeat

A tale of fitness, books, food, and life in between

Have you heard??

on January 30, 2013

Have you heard about the brand new HealthysELF challenge? I’d be surprised if you haven’t! I know you’ve read about the Elf4Health challenge on my blog (and probably many others!) which was the “brain child” of bloggers and blends, Lindsay and Elle! It started off as a way to motivate and keep us all motivated during the holidays, and the idea spread like wildfire! There were many of us who were inspired and encouraged and motivated by the challenges and the support from one another, that we urged the ladies to keep the challenge alive, and thus, HealthysELF was created, after we voted on many different names!


This new movement is again spearheaded by the fabulous Elle & Lindsay, but I am lucky, honored, and super excited to be a healthysELF ambassador(as my “elf” Gina said, I feel like I just got elected to be class president,I’m so excited!) – Check out my new button at the top of the page! Myself and four other ladies have been lucky enough to be part of the planning process and taking on some of the different tasks to help this challenge continue on!

So, here’s what you need to know!

  • Challenge officially kicks off on Monday, February 4th! There are 3 challenges per week – on Mondays, Thursdays, and one on the weekends. These challenges were created from a survey that Elf participants took about their favorite challenges, and ambassadors also thought up some new stuff too! Currently, we have challenges from Feb-June!
  • We have a new HealthysELF Facebook group – come join us! An great deal of support, motivation, encouragement, and inspiration comes from the interactions on the FB page!
  • There will be spotlights on different members of our group posted in the FB group as well — that way we can get to know one another a little better
  • There will also be a newsletter that comes out each month! This will include the month’s challenges, health-related articles, and short articles from the participants (“elves” ) as well! I am assisting in this portion of the challenge, so look for more information on this soon! I’d love to have any and all of you write an article/post for our newsletter!


Why you should join us:

  1. This group of people is absolutely amazing. The support and motivation that comes out of talking to one another and sharing ideas is just awesome!
  2. New friends! I’ve met some great new people and have started reading some brand new ideas and lots if inspiration!
  3. Keeping you on track – I’ve found that having the challenges is a good way to keep myself on track and focused on my health goals for myself! It’s also a great way to motivate yourself to try new things
  4. Who doesn’t want to be a HealthysELF?
  5. There’s absolutely no pressure, and it’s not a competition. This is basically one ginormous support group that helps you drive you fitness goals!

So, how to join? GO HERE or HERE (DO IT NOW!) – you can sign up to be a part of the fun, and subscribe to the monthy newsletter 🙂 You can also get a list of all the challenges!

Also, make sure to check out my fellow ambassadors! They are some pretty kick ass ladies!

Please come join in on the fun and the healthy community that helps us all to believe in ourselves… and remember:
