New Years & New Goals Giveaway Blog Hop

This is our second time doing a giveaway blog hosting by Runaway Bridal Planner!! Since it was so much fun the last time we did, we doing it again. :)

Ok so here is my post about my personal goals for the new year! So since I already posted about that I thought that I would just tell you about the AWESOME things that Lisa and I are giving away today!

Bodyweight Fit Deck

So I purchased a few of these Fit Decks from SkirtSport a few months ago and they are really cool. Each card has an exercise move on it (usually with a modified move for beginners and advanced). The cards are broken up into sections for different muscle groups as well, such as Upper Body, Lower Body, Full Body, ect. These cards are so much fun you can shuffle them and mix up what exercises you do while working on the same areas! My boyfriend and I usually "play" a set of 5 cards from each of the groups at a time (this is one of the only ways I can get him to work out with me :D ).


KT Tape is an adhesive tape that can be applied to the knees, back, calves, shoulders, and many other parts or you body to help with sore joints, muscles, and tendons. I use it primarily on my knees because I have very little cartilage in my right knee which causes a lot of pain and the first time I used the KT Tape I was amazed because it actually was the first thing to help with the pain. We are giving away 1 roll of KT Tape PRO in Black that is Pre Cut. You can find a tutorial here for how to apply KT Tape!

Clif Bars, Stinger Waffles, and Seed Fruit

So I discovered Clif Bars when I started working out. So far they are one of my favorite pre-workout food. We are giving out Crunchy Peanut Butter and Spiced Pumpkin Pie. We are also including two of the Singer Waffles one strawberry flavor (I think this one tastes like pocky personally which is AWESOME for those who don't know what pocky is), and one chocolate flavor. The last food item that we are including a Seed Fruit which is a trail mix of sorts.

 Sofsole Laces and Nuun

I am not a big water an. I know, I know, drinking water is important, especially when it starts to get warmer. Nuun has really helped me start to enjoy drinking my water. That is why we included a Nuun in Lemonade! Last but not least we have a pair of sofsole laces in light green!

AWW! It is 2014 ALREADY!

The New Year is here already! Wow I can't believe it. I feel like it was just yesterday that it was the start of 2013! So in this blog post I just wanted to talk a little bit about my goals for the year. I don't want to call them resolutions because those don't tend to stick well with me. So here goes nothing!

Running Goals of 2014

So I want to run 14 races in 2014! right now here is our list:

Hot Chocolate 5k - January 26
Spartan Race - March 8
Race Through the Decades 7k - March 15
Dirty Girl 5k - April 12
5k Foam Fest - April 26
Zombie 5k - May 24
Dragon Con Fun Run 5k - August 30
Run Like a Dive 5k - September 6
Down and Dirty Mud Run - October 12
Esprit de She - November 6

So we still need to fit in at least 4 more races into this schedule. Anyone in the Atlanta area have any recommendations? So other than fitting in a few more races that goal seems pretty manageable! Other than 14 races in 2014 my second goal for running this year is to run at least 6 miles a week. Yea I know, I know, not too bad. I usually get in at least 5k at a time so twice a week, but having this goal will make sure that I at least stick to running to at least twice a week even when work and school get the better of me! :D

General Health/Fitness Goals for 2014

So if you have been following our page you know that we have ALREADY started P90X3! It has been pretty great! I felt sore in the beginning but since we are going into the third week already the soreness  has started to go away! So my goal is to get through the 90 days,  then to do it again! This is my first Beachbody purchase so I really want to use it and so far I am LOVING it!  I have lost 10 pounds already and I already feel muscles developing.

Goal number two for general health is clean eating! So far Lisa and I have cut out all junk food. We are planning to start cooking more foods and eating more fruits and vegetables! We will be posting some recipes and pictures on the blog and on the Facebook page as well. With this goal comes something that is really hard for me, cutting down on drinking diet coke. Diet coke is my go to drink when I get stressed or upset so now I need to transfer those feels towards exercise and stop drinking 6 diet cokes a day. Right now my goal is 2 diet cokes maximum, and by the end of February cut diet coke out of my diet completely. 

What goals do you have for 2014? Do you write them down on paper? Tell friends about them? Do you make New Year's Resolutions? What are your plans for the new year?

Stay tuned we have a giveaway coming up in our next post on January 17!
