It's Friday! Who else is super excited? I've been looking forward to this weekend for a long time--it's finally time for the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon :)
It'll be interesting to run a race at night, plus it's my first time running this race at Disney. The course runs through Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and Epcot, so this should be a fun new experience! Plus, Joe and I will be enjoying the Food and Wine festival in Epcot after the race! It'll be a lot of fun :)
Ok...on to today's post! I had so much fun linking up with Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC, Cynthia from You Signed Up for What?!, and Mar from Mar on the Run! that I decided to do it again. Today's Friday Five post is all about staying on track with healthy living over the holidays.
It's so easy to get swept up in all the delicious treats and busy schedules during November and December and let your exercise and healthy eating fall by the wayside. Here are 5 things I'm planning to do to stay on track this holiday season!
2. PLAN to be healthy.
3. Participate in healthy activities with family and friends.

4. For all you runners: Pile on the Miles this November!
Pile on the Miles with Monica at Run, Eat, Repeat this November for yet another year! All you have to do is set a healthy goal for the month (it can be miles you plan to run in the month, going on a walk 5X a week, exercising for 30 minutes a day, whatever you want!) and check in each day. It's a great way to make a healthy goal for the month and stick to it with the daily accountability. Added bonus: there's a daily prize offered to those who sign up and check in!
5. Participate in the Holiday Sweat Challenge!
Amanda's Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge. Well, this year, Amanda is teaming up with Sweat Guru/Sweat Pink to bring us the Holiday Sweat Challenge.
You'll earn points for exercise, eating healthy, and checking in daily from November 24-January 5. You'll compete against people in your own fitness level (based on the number of hours you expect to exercise per week) and have the chance to earn some great prizes! It's an awesome way to stay motivated during the holiday season, and the community is just SO awesome and supportive!
If you're interested in signing up, check out the Holiday Sweat Challenge announcement post for more information and to sign up. If you do decide to sign up, feel free to put my name and/or blog name in for a referral! I'd be very thankful as there is a referral prize I could win :)
Hope y'all have a great weekend!
