I’ve got a great giveaway to start off the week for you, but first let’s talk about some of the many blog challenges that are going around right now. With the holidays drawing near, numerous bloggers have set up various challenges to help people stay motivated and make healthy choices. I’ll share my favorites and maybe you’d like to join in, too!
Janetha wants to encourage you to stay active during the month of December. All you need to do is visit the official Dedicated December page and leave a comment with your workout from the day. There are tons of awesome prizes for additional motivation!
I wrote about this one on Friday, but just to remind you: Lindsay and Elle have set up mini-challenges for each day in December. They’ve paired up the participants so each person has an “elf.” Elves get to know one another, provide support, and inspire their partner by offering ideas of their own. Itz not too late to sign up! You can sign up for Rounds 2 & 3 by clicking here. There are almost 1,000 elves! There are tons of awesome sponsors for #elf4health.
Katie wants you to dominate in all areas of your life; afterall, living a healthy lifestyle is all about balance! For example, Zoey and I went on a walk yesterday as it was a warm 70 degrees in St. Louis.
We enjoyed the warm weather and totally dominated our walk. Word around town is that Katie plans on sneaking in a few prizes for this challenge, so use the hashtag #dominatediva and start posting on Twitter and Instagram all the ways you’re dominating!

PRO Compression is giving away one pair of compression socks to one very lucky Itz Linz reader! I posted my review of the PRO Compression socks last week after I ran a 10K race in them. (In case you missed it, read my review here.) In a nutshell: the day before the race, I lifted legs which usually leaves my legs with major DOMS. However, the following day I ran 6-miles in my socks, and experienced NO soreness whatsoever! Plus, I kept a pretty decent pace for not running the two weeks prior. And, I put PRO Compression socks through the ultimate test after my race:
They passed the test with flying colors! Be sure to show them love on Facebook by liking their page: PRO Compression on Facebook. Here is some key information about PRO Compression socks straight from their website:
- Golfers gain an edge. A key benefit of wearing compression socks over eighteen (or thirty-six!) holes is the delay of muscular breakdown and fatigue that comes from long-term play. This significant improvement enables you to perform at the highest level for longer durations of time than ever before.
- Triathletes, Runners, and Endurance Athletes: Your feet and legs are your engine. Anything less than peak performance and full recovery means unnecessary discomfort while operating at less than your best. Change all of that with the advanced design and materials that make PRO Compression socks your ultimate recovery tool.
- How they work: PRO Compression socks are designed specifically to deliver both maximum comfort and speedy recovery times. The science is complex, but benefits such as improved blood flow, stability and comfort are universally understood. The moment you put these socks on your feet and incorporate them into your game, you will feel and understand the difference. (source)
