Sometimes I think I may be the only person in the world who doesn’t mind Mondays.  Most Mondays that is.  After a particularly lovely weekend I have trouble embracing the newness of the week but, let’s face it, there’s no stopping it.  This would be one of those weekends.  I had a great 16 mile run with my running girls on Saturday and then Sunday my hubby and I went for a 20 mile bike ride.  I’m not going to lie, it was a pretty blissful weekend.

Beautiful sunrise from my run.

Last month I had a ton of fun with some fantastic blends (blogging friends) putting together a daily photo challenge.  And, WOW – y’all blew us away at your enthusiasm with the #holidayaday photo challenge.  We had over 6,000 pictures uploaded to Instagram with the #holidayaday hashtag!

So we figured why stop in December? Why not continue this challenge into the new year AND help encourage you with your New Year’s resolutions.  We decided right off the bat that doing a daily photo challenge wouldn’t be practical so we went back to the drawing board and TA-DA!! came up with:


Introducing #goalgetter2013.  This is an easy-peesy, one photo a month challenge designed to help keep you accountable for the goals you want to achieve in 2013.  What you do is pick a goal each month and then snap a picture of you working towards your goal. For example, if you’re goal is to eat healthier, snap a picture of you noshing on those veggies.  Want to be a faster runner? Snap a picture after you’ve crushed your run.  Easy, right? Don’t feel like you can only take one picture a month though, I know we’d all love to see as many pictures as you little goal-getting heart desires to upload.

Throughout the year we’ll be checking in on your #goalgetter2013 progress.  We’ll have fun progress updates and maybe even a surprise giveaway or two so make sure to follow us via our blogs and on Instagram.

And for even more accountability, you can subscribe to our monthly newsletter.  Each month we’ll send out a reminder newsletter with motivational tips, success stories, and more.  I can’t wait to see what goals you have planned for 2013!  What are you waiting for?  Take the pledge today and go get your goals!
