Sweating Pink

Big news for The Chicken Scoop: I’ve been accepted as a Sweat Pink ambassador!!

SweatPink

 

Slogan from their website:

Welcome to the Sweat Pink™ movement, where tough and girly come together at last. Sweat Pink™ is all about sharing the joy that comes from living a healthy lifestyle. It’s a celebration of hard work and well-earned rewards. Our pink shoelaces are a proud demonstration of all we’ve achieved, and all we plan to become.

Bonuses of being a Sweat Pink Ambassador is that I will be part of a network of like-minded lady bloggers to help inspire others and reach even more people! I am very excited to get going with this group! Other perks for sure but we will see what they are as they come along 🙂

In other news, I had a horrible gluten reaction this weekend due to my silly decision to eat loads of pizza on Sunday. I won’t share my list of symptoms so no one is grossed out but I made a list of them to remind me the next time I think I want a gluten bomb for dinner. Rob and I have already agreed to never order pizza again. I’m ok if I eat small amounts (like one slice) but having it in the house is a no-no. I am feeling much better now so that is good!

Due to the horrible feeling on Monday, I skipped a day of Body Beast and we started up again on Tuesday. Still loving the program! My arms aren’t as sore today as they were last time I did the chest and tris video. Adapting already? Perhaps.

I’ve not been doing my walking lately which is starting to bug me. The weather has been absolutely awful. Even today, its warm but like 80% humidity and looks like its about to rain any second. It hasn’t been nice enough for a walk in like a month. I want the sun back!

And that’s pretty much everything! I took (another) little break from blogging over the weekend and it was wonderful. I tweeted and instagram-ed but I didn’t really go onto my laptop (restricted myself to phone use). By Monday, I felt so much more relaxed than I have been. I spend a lot of time for school research on the computer and just need to step away sometimes. Now I’m back with better ideas and clearer thoughts! Anyway, speaking of research, I need to get to it! Happy Wednesday everyone!
