Motivation Monday -- Vow Renewal, a Grand Re-Opening, and a Scavenger Hunt + prizes! (Open to all!)

Wow. Did you know we're about at the halfway mark here until final weigh-in at the Summer Slimdown Extravagannnnzaaaaah?


How far have you gotten toward your goal? Me -- well, you know I was a little upset about my ticker headed in the other direction on Friday, and after a new pink Coach purse nice weekend breather -- (Serenity now!) I am renewing my vows here to get fitter and unfatter.

Also, guess what, May is Fitness Month! So this week, instead of a prize on Friday at the weigh-in -- we're gonna have a little fun with a scavenger hunt -- and this one's open to anyone who wants to do it, bloggers and non-bloggers alike. It's fun for the whole family!

Here are the rules:

  • Take pictures of the following 5 items/scenarios.

1. The healthiest food item in your house (you can like it or hate it)
2. The mostest unhealthiest food item in your house (yum! I can think of a few I wish were in my house. Wah wahhh.)
3. Your favorite workout must-have item (clothes, equipment, partner, music device, whatever!)
4. A picture of a part of you exercising (a limb, a finger, a face -- keep it clean!)
5. A picture of you and your family (and/or a friend or loved one or dog or whomever) doing something healthy (yes, I have a dirty mind too, and we know there are many activities that burn calories --but we don't really want to see that; my mom and mother-in-law read this). But it could be going out to a healthy dinner -- getting outside for a walk, playing in the yard, going to tee-ball, exercising as a group with your headbands on in your living room, whatever you want! The more creative the better! Get everyone involved!)

  • When you're done, write a post about it linking here to the contest and leave me a comment so I can come by and see!
  • You have plenty of time -- this contest closes Friday, May 16th at 8pm est. I will post all the players so everyone can see what everyone came up with. I will randomly pick the winner and announce them on Saturday, the 17th.
  • However, there will be a second prize: a prize for "Most Creative."
  • Non-bloggers can enter too -- just e-mail your "answers". Again, nothing dirty please or I will put a hex on you.
  • Anyone involved in the Summer Slimdown -- we will still have our weekly weigh-in on Fridays. Sign the linky so we can visit each other (safety in numbers)! I encourage anyone who wants to weigh-in with us (no "weight" just "weightloss") to come by and do the same -- we do this every Friday. You can read about it here.

Have fun!
Oh! and the best part: Prizes!

1 Random winner will receive a $25 gift card to Barnes and Noble. Who doesn't love books?

And...the winner of "most creative" will win (1) one DVD of Tommy Boy. My favorite movie of all time. I would like to share Chris Farley with the world.
