Move100 Ambassador Recap & $5,000 Giveaway

Remember a few months ago when I posted about the Move100 Ambassador Search over here on Healthy Chicks? Well, I am proud to announce that I was chosen as one of the ambassadors to take part in their amazing initiative, that is encouraging people to stay fit and move more each day.

As a Move100 Ambassador, I was given some pretty cool tools to track my training, some dumbbells for strength training and a whole lotta love from the whole Move100 team, particularly Lynn and Bob, who I can’t thank enough for this incredible opportunity.

A few weeks after I was notified I’d be one of their ambassadors, I took a trip to South Hamilton for a photo-shoot, interview and video shoot. If you watch the video on the homepage, you can see some shots of me doing yoga, stretching and running. How cool is that? There’s also a blown up picture of me here on the “Moving Stories” page, where you can actually read my personal wellness story, including how I lost 30 pounds and found happiness.

They even filmed my interview, where you can watch in full here. I was a bit camera shy (hence the awkward, shaky tone) but my message was clear nonetheless. After all, I get the greatest pleasure in inspiring others to live a healthier lifestyle and feel good about their bodies again, on the inside and out.

Wait, it gets even better! The lovely team at Move100 is hosting a contest on their website, which you can enter daily for your chance to win $5,000.

    I LOVE your video — it shows the real you and that’s what matters. You are so cute on camera!!

    Congrats on being picked, girl! That must feel so surreal to be in that video and to have had a photoshoot done. You deserve it! I love campaigns that don’t necessarily say you have to run miles to be fit. MOVEMENT in general is just so beneficial!

    […] Also, be sure to take risks by trying new classes and different types of exercise, as you may surprise yourself. This morning I took a hot yoga class with a friend at Prana Power Yoga in Central Square and haven’t felt such a sense of bliss in a long time. In the past year, I’ve completed my THIRD half marathon (I can’t believe I’m saying that), PR’d my 5K by over a minute, and took part in the Move100 Initiative. […]
