The Biggest Loser Winners, an awesome new headband, new medals earned, and nother giveaway announcement.

2014 has been great for me so far. I returned from a glorious vacation with my husband and kids. 2 weeks of making memories is what's important to us. So therefore I am declaring 2014, the year of Memory Making. What does that mean? I am aiming to do a lot of "first" this year. So I challenge you to join me this year in making memories.
I will post some of the amazing pictures I got while on vacation throughout the week, but first I have a couple winners to announce...
The winners of The Biggest Loser Run/Walk giveaway are...
Shannon W
You guys have 48 hours to contact me at [email protected] otherwise a new winner will be chosen.
I had some amazing mail when I came home from vacation 
The awesome people at Max Flow Sports sent me a couple of their cross grip non slip hair bands to test out. I have to say they are amazing. It did not slip one time during my run yesterday and I even wore it most of the day with no problems. I suffer from flat head in the back and its hard to find hair bands that don't slip off my head, so it is nice to have a band that doesn't slip. Check them out...

I also received my January Jost Running Medals. They are amazing. I have already earned the 5k, and I am looking forward to earning the half marathon medal later this month. I think I am going to use the full marathon as a bike training. If you need a little push in your training or just don't like to race with a lot of people, you should check out Jost Running Virtual Races.

I also have a great giveaway for you guys tomorrow. Core Power was recently named the “Official Protein Drink of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.” and they want to give one of my readers and official Core Power Fit Kit.
Stay tuned tomorrow to enter.
Until tomorrow, I would love for you to tell me what "First" you are looking forward to in 2014. Leave me a comment and I will have a little surprise for one of you.


  1. I would love to ride in my first MS 150 bike ride this year. Something always comes up that keeps me from participating in one!

  2. A vacation in the first part of the year sounds like a great way to kick it off!!!

    In 2014 I am first and foremost looking forward to putting my work injury behind me and getting back into running and racing marathons like I used to love:)

  3. I would love for a first to follow through on my debt reduction goal for the year!!

  4. I want to go.skydiving! My husband and my daughter have both gone but it will be a "first" for me!

  5. I have two firsts and HUGE goals for this year: finish a Tough Mudder and a half marathon. The half I'm aiming for is in September I think, but I mean, come on...the Mudder is almost a half marathon itself (which is 5/31).

    I think a year of firsts is a great idea!! Btw, I meant to comment on your other picture - your husband's beard is epic.

  6. Losing weight shouldn't be as hard as many people try to make it. People who are desperate to achieve weight loss are often prone to take more risks. The only reason most people fail in their fitness goals is that they have good intentions at first to adopt a new lifestyle, yet after a few weeks or months, they abandon their good intentions and slip right back into their old bad habits that gave them the excess body fat in the first place.
