Getting Active with Actio 926

This is a sponsored post – SweatPink Ambassadors partnered with Actio926 and was given a workout outfit and compensation for this post. All opinions, thoughts and content are my own.

Well 2015 is OFFICIALLY under way! Can you believe it?!?!

This year I am taking Fit Approach’s advice and taking a NO EXCUSES stand! No excuse to not eat clean, no excuse to not have time to be active… NO EXCUSES! And I want YOU to do the same!

Will you join me in the #noexcuses challenge? Of course you will because you are a ROCKSTAR!

So let’s chat workout clothes for a second, shall we?! We ALL know that you work out harder and longer when you are in comfy and cute attire. You can hold your yoga pose longer, your miles are faster and the weights are heavier. BOOM!

When I open up my drawer to grab a pair of yoga pants or running tights I can either choose between black or black… lol Seriously I have NO colored pants! So I thought “what the heck!”. I NEEEED some new pants! Actio 926 was awesome enough to allow a handful of SweatPink Ambassadors pick out a brand new outfit! YAY!

actio logo My pants are the Spin It 3/4 Legging in Solar Eclipse and my hooded top is the Partie Hoodie in Fog. So so so amazing! The pants are a tad snug – I ordered a small because that’s what I usually wear but they may be a bit too small for my booty! But the top fits snug and nice! I can’t wear anything under it (maybe a thin and tight tank top) but that’s ok! My advice is order your normal size but expect them to be fitting or order a size up and you will probably have a little more wiggle room.

There clothes really are amazing, though! High quality, durable and stylish! Owners Stephanie and Mike are natural born athletes who wanted a different kind of clothing line then what was already out there. Starting from scratch in their home, they started to create handcrafted clothes for active people. Actio 926 was BORN! I encourage you to check out their entire clothing line and see the difference! And if you are in the LA / Hollywood area you can check them out in person, too!

SO let’s get back to talking about NO EXCUSES. I get it… I am a mom, a wife, a work and stay at home gal… I wear many hats! But my health is vital so that I can keep up with life’s demands! That is why it is so important to fuel my body properly, to be active and show it self love! Here are some of my very own tips and mantras that I use when I feel excuses seep in:

Have FUN!

Find what you enjoy doing and HAVE FUN with it! I have found that I love yoga and weight lifting and I am pumped up and excited to practice these activities. Tell me to do an hour on the elliptical and I will run the other way! Being active should not be torture so pick and choose activities you enjoy!

Everyone had to start somewhere!

Sometimes my ego gets in the way and tells me that I am not good enough. Will I look like a newbie? Will I do it wrong? Will I make a fool out of myself? Always remember that everyone started somewhere and somehow. Practice, practice, practice!

Create the time!

Ya… we are ALL busy! But you must make the decision to incorporate a healthy lifestyle and do some readjusting of your time. Mark it on your calendar. Set the date. Set the time. DO IT!

Mantras I use to keep me focused:

~ I have a strong, healthy body ~
~ I create my own happiness ~
~ My body is a temple and I feed it nutritious food ~
~ Nothing can stand in my way ~
~ I can do this ~

My biggest advise to anyone eating to start living a healthier life is you have to start slowly and make it personal. Dig deep and find your WHY!

So remember to visit Actio 926 on their website where you can see how amazing they are!

And head on over to my own facebook page where I am hosting a giveaway to receive your very own outfit from Actio 926! Congratulations to Courtney for winning!!!

Hey 2015, it’s me, T-Dub (nickname, spirit animal, real name, blog name)

This year I would like to practice more self love – I want to fully honor my body from the inside out, from the top of my head down to my baby toe!

It would also be super duper awesome if I also did more running, more creating (art and sewing) and more yoga and deep breathing this year. It’s not a resolution, though, just a reminder to myself to try and have the best year yet because I deserve it!

The thing I am looking forward to most this year is starting to fully understand my wants and desires! Believing in my intuition and trusting my guide!

I’ll use the one thing that truly gets me out of bed in the morning which is coffee(!!!) to help me get up, get charged, (verb) and get after my #NoExcuses 2015. Speaking of excuses (ahem), my very favorite excuse is I will do it later and I have used it to get out of doing exercise and working on my business on more than 100 TRILLION (number) occasions. I vow to move my body and be more healthy this year even if it means I have to face my fear, leave my excuses behind and understand I am only hurting myself.

Even if my alarm clock gets eaten by the dog in the middle of the night, I’ll still get up and salute the day.

I will stop blaming my sweet tooth [ex: kids, dog, husband] for eating the rest of the ice cream when everyone knows it was really MEEEEE.

My fear [job, hair, car, husband, kids] is not the reason I make excuses. I will show my fear [same as before] who’s boss this year and get my blood flowing, intense and soul charging movement [type of sweaty activity] on.

I know that any kind of workout [type of workout] is better than telling myself I can do it later…. I deserve to feel better NOW! [noun]

I will reward myself by buying a new book, a new pair of running pants or a new box of incense.

#NoExcuses 2015 has just begun and already I am imagining myself a winner. I can’t wait to rock a Zeal Hoodie (article of clothing) from Augusta Active. I can’t wait till my sweaty friends are jealous of how fresh, clean and vibrant (adj) I am between workouts with help from ShowerPill body wipes. I can see myself rocking sun salutations [yoga pose / workout move] in new Rock the Course Leggings [article of clothing from Actio926] from Actio926 and looking fit and fly while doing it. And of course, I’ll be taking my workouts to the next level and improving my ass [noun] with my new ActivMotion Bar to help me train for my next  half marathon [distance] race with Sasquatch Racing.

Oh, and let’s not forget how amazing my sports bra [article of clothing] will smell in my / during my race [favorite type of workout] after washing with some WIN Detergent. And lastly, I’ll keep rocking my 2015 with clean eats and nutrition from Beaming with Health!

Tag, Tweet, shout-out, call, text, fax or email 3 friends to take this survey and share how they will have a #NoExcuses 2015. Remind your friends to simply fill in the BOLD parts!
