Do you dare to be workout ready



I joined the YMCA three weeks ago. It’s been great for me. I’m exercising again and having some me time! And B is getting in some time playing with other kids in the childcare and getting more accustomed to not having mommy nearby all day. It’s good for both of us.

I realized in addition to my super sore muscles, I also had some super old workout clothes and was in need of more. I took to Facebook to ask for suggestions for places to shop.

I'm so sore from getting back at exercising but also noticing how out of date and ill-fitting my workout clothes are….

But, much like I dislike clothes shopping I seem to also dislike exercise clothes shopping, too. I think it’s safe to say I don’t really like shopping for garments at all! 

I do, however, like to virtually dress myself in fun clothes!

Do you dare

This month, UnitedHealthCare has three new dare challenges, one of which is to create your very own “healthy selfie” avatar by mixing and matching accessories and clothing for your chance to win a $400 gift card. It takes just a couple seconds to complete and you are entered to win!

Other options include sharing a photo of your fresh veggies with the hashtag #FreshVeggiesWDY…you can share the photo on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. It must be a photo share with the hashtag, you cannot simply share the dare itself. The grand prize is a Le Creuset French Oven and taking their health IQ quiz (one question) for a chance to win an Apple iPad mini.

  1. I jokingly challenged my husband to the Princess Half, and he said yes thinking I wouldn’t complete the training… HA! I’m thinking about signing up for another one now. Though, running at 36 weeks pregnant? Heck no. I’ll sit here and wallow….

  2. I’m really thinking about the Princess Half too. I’m going to complete all three dares if I can remember. I like this challenge because it’s easy! 🙂

  3. I’m with you on dreading shopping for workout clothes. I only have a few outfits I can squeeze into – to go to the gym 🙁

  5. I need to get a work out routine going. Maybe if I get some cute work out clothes it would encourage me to work out more!

    I just started a workout routine myself. I have a gym membership and I workout to a DVD by Leslie Sansome. I have not been workout clothes shopping and really do not want to as I am afraid what the end result will be. I just wear some of the clothes I already have laying around. They work well;)
    We used to be with United Healthcare and now I am wishing we were once again. I like that they are making it fun to engage in better health!
