We are partnering with Tampax Pearl Active to #GETINMOTION for the 28 days in February. I   personally and excited because it is my birthday month and I have been in the workout groove, so this challenge is going to boost my commitment level to staying active. 

Now is the time when the new year's gym hype has worn off and maybe your motivation as fizzled out.  I have been there too many times to count! Just ask my husband. Did you know it takes 21 days to form a habit?  I didn't, and maybe that is why my healthy habits, like working out on a regular basis haven't lasted long term?  It takes 21 days to form a habit and interestingly enough the average menstrual cycle is 21-28 days. When I get my period, I usually use that as a reason to skip my workout. Given these stats, if you push through your period and create a consistent fitness routine, you can reach your fitness goals, faster. And you are more likely to form long-term healthy habits. Interesting, huh?

Ok, ladies, I am asking you to join me and Tampax Pearl Active and commit to #GetInMotion 28-days straight during the month of February. That’s right. We want you to push through your period during February and document what fitness regimen you are testing out. I am going to be right there with you. Can we do it? I think we can. And while we are at it, let's have fun and break out of our comfort zones to try new ways to get active.

I spend a lot of time running after this girl! And that counts! To all the Mamas out there who are doing cardio all day running after their babies, I feel you! But let's not forget that we need time to ourselves too, and taking an hour a day to go for a walk, take a Zumba class, or jumping on a spin bike while listening to your favorite music just might be the stress reliever we need.
