Get up and get MOVING!

Today I have a challenge for all of you.  A physical challenge (a la Double Dare!) And there may even be a great prize for one lucky reader who completes it.  It's not hard. And I know you can do it!
Are you ready?
I want you to get up and get moving for 30 minutes of physical activity before Christmas!
Can you do it?
You can walk, jog, run, bike, rollerblade, lift weights, take a group exercise class, throw the football...just get MOVING!
So many of us wait until January 1st to attack our New Year's Resolutions, many of which include weight loss and working out.  
Why wait?  START TODAY!
Sign up for a 2012 race to get motivated.
You will feel so much better and better about yourself if you do.
That's my challenge: 
         30 minutes of physical activity before Christmas.  Comment here on the blog or on my Twitter @CarissaAnneB and tell me what you did.  If I can get 25 people moving then I will give away a Target giftcard to one lucky reader.
I also want to encourage you to get your family moving.  Most of us are together with relatives right now.  Maybe you are someone who commits to fitness, but your family doesn't.  Take Mom or Dad on a walk to look at Christmas lights.  Sit down with your cousins and plan out a fun 5k you can walk together in the coming year, then go for a jog.
Fitness is more fun in a group!
Wouldn't that be fun? Sharing your love of fitness with your family and making them healthier in the process?
Get MOVING! Get them moving! And you could win big!

Can you tell I'm motivated today?  Could be my endorphins.  I just finished a 10 mile run as part of my half marathon training.  Long runs come much easier when you're training for a race.  You simply know that you HAVE to get those miles in.
While I ran Kyle lifted high-intensity style in the garage.  Check us off for our 30 minutes of activity!
I have a heavy-duty full body workout scheduled tomorrow and 20 minutes of high intensity sprints for Christmas Eve.

I encourage you to take on our challenge and share with us how you got active.  Don't wait until 2012 to get it today!
Would we call that good form?

Carissa & Kyle


  1. I did the stair stepper for 10 minutes, and elliptical for 40 minutes!!!

  2. Brian and I just killed a full body weight fest at the gym... During one arm rotation I said and I quote "I am so eating a cookie tonight.... But only one" lol gotta love xmas eve workouts

  3. Movingfrom one office to another can be costly, stressful and chances are, you might end up having unhappy employees and clients - that's how daunting and risky relocation could get. That is why relocation needs to be planned carefully. Jot down the pros and cons why you need to relocate the office and compare if moving would be more advantageous, if so then move out! LOL

  4. Nice blog. Thank you for sharing. ASHOKA PACKERS AND MOVERS is well established reputed and professionally managed company having own branches and network all over India.
