It’s time to SHINE, SHINE, SHINE!!!

It’s our year to SHINE!!!  Want to come SHINE with me??


Come join me for The Color Run again this year!!  If you know me…then you know that I’m a HUGE fan of The Color Run and have run in many over the years!  This race NEVER lets me down and always provides me with an AMAZING TIME!!!

I’m never disappointed on race day when The Color Run is involved 🙂


Let’s start with what we already know about The Color Run

  • It’s known as the Happiest 5K on the planet (and I agree…Hello!!)
  • It’s a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality (Yes…you can wear that unicorn outfit if you want!)
  • It is now considered the single largest event series in the world since their debut – they hosted more than 300 events in 50+ countries in 2014. (The Color Run thanks each and every one of you that made that possible!)


This year though…we are going to SHINE!!!  The Color Run is introducing a few new FUN things this year to help us do just that!

 This year EVERYONE in 2015 will be receiving their very own LIMITED EDITION Shine Tour Participant Kit!  This AMAZING kit includes:

  • Custom Race Tee
  • Gold Finisher’s Medal (for all us BLING lover’s)
  • Tricolor headband w/silver stiching
  • NEW Shine packet (in all it’s glittery-ness)
  • Shiny Tatoos (don’t worry mom…they come off!!)


And that’s not all!  The Color Run is also blinging out the 5K course and finish festival also!  There will be an exciting Sparkle Zone along the route and don’t forget the awesome photo ops (say Cheese!).  And to finish it off, get ready for massive clouds of color and shimmer as well as confetti cannons!


So come on…you know want to!  Get on over there and sign up!!  You don’t want to miss out this year!!   I will be running at the St. Louis event on April 18 but there are SOO many other cities to choose from!  Check the list out here!

Healthy Living…torture or not?

Healthy Living….torture or not??

Wednesday night I was right in the middle of my workout, when my mother-in-law walked past me and made the comment…”Are you torturing yourself AGAIN?”  To which I replied, “It’s definetly NOT torture!”  I don’t know about the rest of you but I enjoy working out and eating food that is good for me.  I love how it makes me feel.  I love how it makes me look.  I love it in general!  Yes!!  It does hurt sometimes…but isn’t it a good hurt?!  Don’t you feel tons better after and glad that you did that workout/run/walk?  Don’t you feel better when you make healthier eating choices?  I know for a fact that I do!

I ended up with a great workout Wednesday night.  Started with my run and decided at last minute to run a 5K just to see what my time would be.  I’m just getting back into running after some health issues and so have been trying to work my mileage up a little at a time.  Ended up finishing 3.1 miles in 37 (misprint…should say) 34:48 minutes!!  I’m (even) HAPPY(IER) with that!  I started to get tired at the end and still had to walk some but I did it!!!  I also started the Active Advantage Beginner Strength Training Program.  Did Day 1 and feeling good so far!  Sure to be sore in a few days but that’s okay!!  I won’t be complaining come swimsuit time 🙂

Overall, I felt great!  Maybe it was this cute outfit I had on!

My new Ellie Outfit

My new Ellie Outfit

It’s my new outfit from Ellie and I’m in total love with it….heck…I’m in love with everything I’ve ordered from them so far!!  This company is great in my book.  Ellie is a company that sells activewear that is not only stylish and cute but also very affordable.  Each month, they have a new and different collection to pick from but get them while you can because some of the pieces sell out fast.  This company also guarantees that their designs will flatter every woman because they make sure that each pieces is a perfect fit and true to size.  The fabrics used all feel amazing because they only use high-tech fabrics….no cheap cotton or jersey spun fabrics!  Which means no shrinking and always flattering.  And the best part…..IT’S MADE IN THE USA!!!!

At Ellie, you can just go on their site and shop till your heart’s content OR you can become a Fit FashionistaClub member and choose any two pieces each month for only $49.95.  If you want to check it out and sign up, you can use my personal invite link and receive 20% off your first member order….that means you can get your first two pieces for less than $40.00!!!!!
