Comment Contest Tuesday: Challenge Go Fit Girl!

I was thinking about this month’s Monthly Challenge and how I am not super jazzed about it. And based on the participation and minimal updates I am guessing GFG! readers feel the same way.

It’s difficult to come up with exciting challenges for exercise and nutrition every single month, which I have been doing for nine months now. Sometimes the ideas are great and sometimes they are just OK.

(My favorite so far has been going old school with hula hooping, jumping rope and jumping jacks, which was April’s Go Fit Girl! Monthly Challenge.)

So I am coming to my wonderful readers and asking you to give me ideas. What kind of challenges do you want? Do you want to challenge others? Or challenge yourself?

And to make this more fun, let’s make it a Comment Contest Tuesday.

For every idea you post in the comments below you will get your name thrown into a hat for a drawing. So the more you comment, the better chance you get to win a prize. Please make sure to come up with both exercise and nutrition ideas.

So I gave her another hint: Drink water while driving to and from work. She told me the other day she has been doing that and has been drinking more water. YEA!

I have written about water in the past. But I feel like this is an important subject, which can be written and talked about over and over.

Another co-worker sent me a forwarded e-mail called Water vs. Coke. I am sure many of you have seen this in the past.

According to a Livestrong article, some of the water stats are proven below. I can’t find anything that proves or disproves this whole list. But from my experience and all the research I have done over the years I believe most of them. According to Snopes.com, we don’t necessarily … Continue reading
