Move, Nourish, Believe – The Active Living Challenge!

I love a good challenge! And I love to live a healthy, active, lifestyle! So when I saw that Lorna Jane Active and Fit Approach were joining forces in a twitter/Instagram challenge, I was in! From August 4th thru the 25th, we are being challenged to Move our Bodies, Nourish our Minds (& I like to add souls), and Believe in ourselves. The great thing about challenges for me, is that they motivate me. Kind of like all those new apps on our phones and armbands that motivate you to track your activity. So thanks to Lorna Jane Active & Fit Approach for motivating me to 1: Move, Nourish, & Believe    (and)      2: Write on my Blog! As a part-time blogger, I sometimes let too much time lapse between writing sessions. So thanks for keeping me on track!

August 5, Day 2: Favorite Healthy Recipe: I love this amazing salad that I basically just made up a couple of years ago! There is no real recipe; just lots of healthy ingredients, like Romaine & Red Lettuce, Pear slices, Blueberries, Cherry Tomatoes, Cucumbers, and Mozzarella & Feta Cheese! Topped with your favorite viniagrette!
