I tried to do a weight loss challenge a couple of years ago on my site and ultimately failed. I had great participation from readers and other bloggers, but in the end… I lacked motivation. Now I am back stronger than ever and totally motivated to lose weight!! I have another 10 lbs I want to get rid of by the end of May. Since it’s the last month before beach season, I figured I would have an Instagram May Photo A Day weight loss challenge and
I want you to participate.
For those unfamiliar with photo-a-day challenges, each day has a task. You take a picture of the task for that day and post the picture on instagram with the hashtag of the challenge.
All you have to do is post the flyer below on your IG to let your followers know what you are participating in so they can participate too if interested! Each day has a task that will help you get to a healthier you. The goal is to be #CurlyAndFit !! The tasks may include for example to take a picture of your workout outfit, take a pic of you working out, take a pic of a healthy snack you had, take a picture of your workout hair and much more! Some are duplicates but you can get creative with it.
When you post the pictures each day, make sure you use the hashtag #CurlyAndFit so everyone can search the hashtag to see all the awesome pics and get inspired. I have seen alot of weight loss and workout challenges on Instagram and I get so inspired. I wanted to do something a little different and also incorporate hair. We all know that some (alot) of Black women have an issue with going to the gym because they don’t want to sweat out their hair or mess up there hair. We can have fab hair AND work out and get healthy!
For this Instagram challenge, for participating you have a chance to win some awesome prizes!!
I have some awesome giveaway sponsors for all your needs! Lady Foot Locker was nice enough to offer 4 gift cards so you can “Work Out In Style”. I know since I have been working out, I feel much better going to the gym in cute workout clothes versus a baggy t-shirt and leggings. There is totally a difference when you have a nice workout ‘fit to get your healthy on! Oh…and good tennis shoes!!
Next up, Save Your Do GymWrap. I’m sure you have heard of this. The beautiful couple Nicole Ari Parker and Boris Kodjoe created a wrap for your head that protects your hair so you can “Save your Do”
GymWrap is a stylish headband developed with a patent-pending revolutionary “Edge Control Technology” that minimizes sweat absorption through a unique blend of materials that allows heat to escape while letting cool air in. The moisture ‘wicking’ process occurs at the molecular level within the fabric resulting in drier flat hair!
And of course you need to style your hair! Motions is giving away products from their natural line so you can protect and maintain your hair in between workouts. So whether you rock wash and gos, twists outs, coils outs, etc… Motions will have you covered. Co-washes are your friend while working out and sweating alot!
I will pick 4 winners based on participation and consistency (You don’t have to participate every single day, but the more, the better to get in shape)
