From Couch to Action Photo Challenge

I've seen a variety of photo challenges on social media lately, and I have to say, I love it.  So many beautiful pictures of different places, people, things and more!  And so much creativity.  I was inspired while seeing some recent photo challenges over the last few weeks or so.  I decided to issue my own challenge.  This isn't a physical "prize" based challenge, my hope is that during and following the challenge, you feel great about what you've accomplished.

If you've read some of my past posts, you know that I've often struggled with staying active, so, I've used that as inspiration for this challenge.  I'm calling it the "Couch to Action Photo Challenge".  Whether you are already really active, or are not active at all, this challenge is for you.  I encourage you to set your own goals, and use these photos to help motivate you.  I'm proposing this as a 15 day photo challenge.  Not too long, so hopefully a good length to commit to.  See the graphic below, it will indicate a "theme" for each day, from August 15 to 30, and I challenge you to share your picture on Twitter, Facebook and/or Instagram with the hashtag #CouchToActionPhoto.

This is meant to be fun, so be creative!  I hope you all enjoy the challenge.  And I look forward to seeing everyone's pictures starting August 15.

I'll be participating as well, so see below the graphic for the information on how to follow my Twitter and/or Instagram, where I will be posting my own pictures.

Good luck and have fun!

Please note - If you are just beginning a fitness routine, please consult your doctor.   I am not a certified fitness professional, this photo challenge is meant to be fun, so please know your own limits and consult with a health care professional before engaging in any intensive fitness program.  This challenge is meant to be fun and get you moving, but take precautions to prevent injury.  Have fun!


  1. I totally failed at this! I started, but only got a few pictures. Apparently, I'm not committed enough to move from the couch to action yet.

7 Tips to Making Travel Easier

Travel is honestly one of my favourite topics of conversation.  I'm sure that's not shocking to anyone that knows me and/or has read this blog.  I've been asked before to share some of my tips and tricks for easy travel - here are some of my favourites.  Keep in mind that not all of these are ideal for every trip, so it depends on what kind of travel you're doing, but hopefully you find some good information.

1 - Store your passports somewhere that is easily accessible.... but not TOO easily accessible
This seems like a confusing tip, but here's what I mean.  Have you ever been in that moment of boarding and you're frantically searching your carry-ons for where you put the passports?  I've been there.  Those are stressful moments.  You don't want to leave your passports too easily accessible, as they can easily be taken from your bags, but you need them close by, how do you handle that?    I use a carry-on bag that has an inside zipper pocket.  I dedica…

Travelling on a Budget Series - Part 1 - Accomodations

My family and I have been fortunate to be able to travel regularly.  I often get asked about how we can afford to travel.  I'm going to share my money saving tips to help you reach your travel goals.  I have a lot of information to share so this will be a series of posts.  In this, part 1, I will be sharing my tips specific to accommodations - I will follow up with tips on flights, eating on vacation, activities/entertainment, and rental cars.

Before a continue, a little disclaimer - It's important to have an in depth understanding of your own budget.  It's important not to travel "beyond your means".  So that being said - Understand that in addition to my regular full-time job, I have taken part-time jobs in the past (fitness instructor, paid contributor to blogs, etc) to help us save for vacation.  I am not a financial adviser or any kind of financial professional, but my best recommendation is to go through a budgeting exercise first, before you start planning…
