Is it too soon to start talking about how excited I am for fall? I don’t want to wish summer away, but I’m looking forward to the cooler weather, boots, changing colors, apple picking and all things pumpkin.

What a week of Fitness Health and Happiness looks like:

Life in the Conyers’ house? I’m back at work and adjusting to having a work week schedule again. My son moved onto campus and starts college classes this week. My daughter got her driver’s license. It’s been emotionally draining and exhilarating all that the same time.

We’re nearing the end of August and even though summer is coming to an end I’m ready for fall. The weather, fall fashion and beautiful colors of the season all make fall my favorite time of year. Boots and scarves, evening walks in the cool weather and this prAna Diva Vest. Also on my wish list from prAna, the Sabin T-Back Top and awesome Roxanne Printed Legging. You have to see the colors and pattern of the leggings! #legginglove

I’m joining prAna and Sweat Pink for a super fun, #7daystretch #liveinprana challenge – it starts today (Monday, August 24th) and ends at the end of the week (Sunday, August 30th). Join in on the fun – answering daily prompts (see below) – or if you’d prefer to lurk, you can follow along on FitApproach or through the hashtags: #liveinprana #7daystretch #sweatpink!

We’ll be talking about how we (the community) embrace a prAna lifestyle (#liveinprana) and are challenging ourselves to stretch a little deeper, farther and more mindfully for 7 whole days (the #7daystretch). And we’re not just stretching our bodies so you don’t have to be pretzel to join in, we’re also stretching our minds and souls!
