Remember a long, long time ago when I offered to send out a bunch of pink shoelaces to anyone who’d snap a quick pic and send it back to me? The plan was to gather all of the photos and create a SweatPink Saturday post.

And then life happened, I got busy, and here we are almost 2 months later. 😛 But better late than never, right?

As I look at each of these photos, I am struck by the fact that all of these people 1). read my blog 2). are out and active and enjoying life and 3). are wearing pink shoelaces because of me!! That’s pretty exciting to think about. Goosebump-inducing, really. I love that these photos were taken in cities and towns around the country and even in the UK. It just goes to show the reach of this weight loss blogging community. It also shows how a little idea like creating a Sweat Pink Movement can have a really far reach. Bravo, Fit Approach!!


Yep, those are my feet, on a walk with Sofi. We’ve been starting every single day with a nice 30-minute walk around the neighborhood to get the blood pumping and set the mood for the day.


Alyssa (http://doublechindiary.com) from Los Angeles, CA took her pink laces out for a bike ride to get her grocery shopping done. I love that she did an errand and got some exercise at the same time.

Nicole wore got her sweat pink on in a 5K in Michigan, where she ran her personal best time of 36 min!

ScaleWarfare (http://adauntingtaleofscalewarefare.com) in DC used her pink laces on the elliptical machine and then again in a Body Pump class.

Stephanie (http://immyfavorite.blogspot.com/) wore her pink laces to Zumba. (Love her shirt!)

Leila (http://glamnotglum.blogspot.com) from the UK wore gets her sweat pink on during a lovely morning walk. I adore the jacket she’s wearing, don’t you?


I’m embarrassed to say that I don’t know whose feet these are! See, that’s what I get for waiting so long to post these pics. If these pink laces belong to you, please let me know. 🙂

Now I know I sent more laces out than I have photos for, so if you got some, please do me a solid and send me a photo of yourself wearing them.

And to Tina and @SluppyB, I have to apologize and beg for your forgiveness – I haven’t sent your laces yet, but they will be on their way to you Monday morning, I promise.

Have you gotten your #sweatpink on today? How?

I woke up this morning to the sight of the sun shining after days of dreary, cloudy, rainy weather, and it just put a bit of pep in my step.  Rather than start the morning with my usual cup of coffee and news I hit the ground running and did some housework – laundry, folding clothes, changing sheets, straightening the bathroom and kitchen – all before 8:15am!  Then I headed next door to my sister’s house and had some coffee while we helped each other menu plan for the week.  I have quite an agenda today – grading essays, cleaning a bit more around the house, taking Sofi on a long walk, and doing my favorite Zumba DVD.  Whew!  I get a bit tired just looking at all of that.  But don’t worry, now I’m settled in with a big cup of coffee, news on in the background, all ready to get some serious blog reading in for at least an hour.

Which leads me to today’s post – #SweatPink Saturday Blog Hop.  I don’t think I mentioned that earlier this week I “met” lots of my fellow SweatPink Ambassadors.  There are 57 (and counting!) SweatPink Ambassadors who come from a wide variety of backgrounds and live across the country.  In fact, I think I’m one of the few from the Bay Area, where Fit Approach is based.  Some of these amazing women were approached by Fit Approach to become a SweatPink Ambassador (as I was), and others applied for the position.  The fact that so many of them have shown interest in the program leads me to think that Fit Approach may be  growing in the future to have locations around the country – who knows?! In the mean time, we’re all trying to get to know each other in this virtual world.

To that end, one of the SweatPink Ambassadors, Lori (who blogs at Get Fit Naturally), suggested a Blog Hop.  Most of us had never heard of the term before, but loved the idea of introducing each other to ourselves and to our readers.  I highly recommend making some time today to check out these awesome new blogs.  Just click on the #sweatpink shoelace flower below, and you’ll see the post and everyone’s links.  Enjoy!

How will you #sweatpink today?
