This week I joined the Lorna Jane and Fit Approach “Share Something Inspiring Twitter Challenge”. Join the challenge by clicking here! At SunshineFIT my main mission is to empower women to live a healthy lifestyle by giving you the tools to eat healthy and exercise everyday! This challenge is a way for me to be inspired by others so I can continue to inspire YOU!

Short recap of my #sharesomethinginspiring first week.

The challenge started with tweeting something that motivates me. For as long as I can remember my favorite quote has been, “Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much.” It’s my daily mantra. Everyday is a new day that can be filled with ups and/or downs. This quote reminds me to take part in our life and what happens to us instead of waiting for life to happen to you. Laugh about the good and even the bad. Above all else remember that nothing matters without love.

Day Two was to #sharesomethinginspiring to someone who needs it. It was also Friday and the end of a work week, the beginning of a long weekend! My post was about forgetting real life and enjoying the time off!

Day Three was to #sharesomethinginspiring about your best friend. This was an easy one. My best friend Kim’s journey through weight loss is something that continues to inspire me. She was a guest on my blog a little while back. Read her amazing story here. 

Day four’s challenge topic was #sharesomethinginspiring that makes me smile. Many things make me smile. But recently J.B. and I were in Key West for vacation and to plan our wedding for next year. It was so exciting and we picked our wedding ceremony spot. This spot is what makes me smile! How could it not?


Sweat Happy!
