Stretch Your Mind and Body and #LiveinprAna

Guys!  This is a huge week for me! 

Although it still seems too warm for pumpkin spice, boots and sweaters, Summer seems to be officially over.   Monday is the day my youngest goes back to preschool…  But he won’t be going alone!  After more than 8 years of staying home with my kids, I am going back to work! I’ve accepted a job at the preschool that all three of my kids have attended, and I couldn’t be more thrilled!

Of course, my main concern now is , “When will I ever run?”

But that’s not my only big news this week!  I am also joining prAna and Sweat Pink for a super fun, #7daystretch #liveinprana challenge on Instagram – it starts today (Monday, August 24th) and ends at the end of the week (Sunday, August 30th).

#7DayStretch

You can join in on the fun by answering daily prompts (see below) – or if you’d prefer, you can just follow along on FitApproach or through the hashtags: #liveinprana #7daystretch #sweatpink!

We’ll be talking about how we (the community) embrace a prAna lifestyle (#liveinprana) and are challenging ourselves to stretch a little deeper, farther and more mindfully for 7 whole days (the #7daystretch). And we’re not just stretching our bodies so you don’t have to be pretzel to join in, we’re also stretching our minds and souls!

I am so very excited for this challenge!  As much as I KNOW that I need to add more stretching/yoga to my marathon training, it always seems to be the thing that gets pushed aside, so I am definitely challenging myself to “stretch a little deeper” and I hope you join me!

Here are the daily prompts to get you started!

  1. Fall is my favorite time of year! Boots, apple orchards, cool weather and of course pumpkin. What’s not to like?

    See you on instagram for the #7daystretch!

  2. Congratulations! I also have a hard time trying to fit in running/training on top of a FT job. We’ll adapt, find a way to make it work and rock on. Looking forward to see how you balance it out. I still haven’t figured it out myself and could use some tips!

    See ya on IG for the stretch challenge ^_^
