It has changed the way I think and how I make decisions. It has changed my perspective.
A glimpse of the past 12 days of #dailyMNB…
Every morning I start the day with setting 3 simple daily intentions to move, nourish and believe.
3 words that help start the day on a positive upbeat note no matter what awaits in the hours to come. The intentions keep me on track and remind me to keep it simple and trust what I know. I wake up in the morning and my mind seeks that balance and focus for the day.

I have partnered with Dannon to help promote the Activia Challenge. I have been compensated for my time commitment to review Activia. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.
We know I’m no stranger to challenges, but this one is different. I’m not taking the challenge, my husband, Chad is. You should know for Chad to take on a challenge it has to be simple without a lot of details that are time consuming. I don’t know how patient he will be with photos being taken of when he eats for four weeks, but he has agreed to take notes and share his opinions.
I’ve talked a lot about the benefits of probiotics and gut health. Chad is taking the challenge to see if making a simple change in his diet can help reduce the frequency of minor digestive issues. Simply, to see if he can go from feeling just ok to great digestively. I know it’s possible and I want him to know too.
What is the Activia Challenge?
Enjoy Activia twice a day for four weeks and Activia may help the frequency of minor digestive issues such as bloating, gas, rumbling, and discomfort.
Activia may help reduce the frequency of minor digestive issues like bloating, gas, rumbling & discomfort when consumed twice per day for four weeks as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
Activia makes delicious, creamy, probiotic yogurts that not only taste good; when eaten regularly, they may help you feel good too. With many great options and a vast variety of flavors, Activia makes it easy to complete the challenge with options to enjoy at any point of the day, whether you’re on-the-go, at your desk, or enjoying breakfast at home with your family.

The challenge is complete but active living doesn’t end with the challenge. I’ve started setting 3 small Move Nourish Believe intentions every morning to start my day.
August 18th: Show us how you are practicing #activeliving today! Nutrition is the key to overall good health and proper nutrition is essential for us to look, think and perform at our best.” Nourishing with whole foods today and everyday. I know it makes me feel my best so why wouldn’t I?
August 19th: #ActiveLiving is for life! What part of the future are you most excited for?! I’m excited about all of the possibilities the future holds for me and my family! I look forward to anything that has to do with my kids, my relationship with my husband and my continued growth and change I’ve made a decision professionally and I’m excite to see where it takes me. There is too much to pick just one thing.
August 20th: Share a photo of you getting sweaty with your favorite workout! Running will always be my favorite.
August 21st: What’s a short-term goal you’ve set for yourself? A fall half! After injury and a very conservative return to running I’m ready to start training for a goal race.
August 22nd: Favorite healthy snack. The tomatoes in my garden have taken over! One of my favorite snacks lately has been sliced tomatoes with avocado and sprinkled with paprika. Everything tastes better homegrown. Especially tomatoes.
August 23rd: Share your favorite #lornajane clothing piece from www.lornajane.com! For about 2 years I have always run in one brand of shorts. Now, I bought the black Run Short at the Lorna Jane store when I was in CA and it’s fit gear love. I want the green Run Short. And the pink too!
August 24th: Your favorite part of #ActiveLiving. I ♥everything about active living! Some days it’s hard to find time to #move and it takes a little prep to #nourish but it’s all worth it. Getting more out of life by giving the best version of me! How could I possibly pick just one favorite?
BONUS: Favorite #lornajane inspirational tank. There are so many to choose from! If I had to pick one it would be the BELIEVE tank. I bought it at the Lorna Jane store when we were in CA and I wear it often.
Aug 6: What active living means to you – Active living means taking care of the whole body with the foods you eat, finding what you love to do and doing it often, moving daily, love and belief in yourself, and finding a balance and what works best for you! Having an outlook on life that expresses how great you feel!

Aug 8: Snap a workout sweaty selfie – after my morning workout
Aug 9: Moving/working out with friends – a run date with my best friend
Aug 10: Something you’re grateful for – the unwavering love, support and encouragement of these 3 people
The challenge has made me realize all that I do to live an ACTIVE LIVING life! It’s a lifestyle that I love, makes me feel good and it makes me happy. Who wouldn’t love that? The extra bonus? My active living is good for me and my family!
