Get Your Sh*t Together September 2014

Last year Amber did a challenge in September called Get Your Shit Together September (#GYSTS). This year I contacted her and asked her if I could host it this year.

Every summer I feel like I go through the same thing. I want to do well with weight loss and fitness and it just goes on the back burner because we are so busy. I know I am not the only one out there. I say this year we use September as a new start. This is a chance to get back into your groove. There are a few 5k/10k races coming up that I need to train for and this is exactly what I need to push myself.

The #GYSTS Challenge will begin September 1. There will be a Diet Bet to go along with the challenge. The Dietbet starts on September 3rd. This will help with motivation (no one wants to lose money.)

I am working on a prize pack for a lucky participant at the end of the month (there are some great sponsors already!) Stay tuned for more info.

Basically I will be:
  • Making goals for the month
  • Working out 28 out of 30 days for the month (Everyone needs a couple rest days)
  • Eating right (Aldi here I come for affordable food)
  • Supporting others trying to do the same! 
I hope you all will join me in this challenge. I am hoping to have a great following on Instagram so we can all support each other.

I even made a button for the challenge.

  9. I'm in. I was just looking for new blogs to follow so this is great timing as I want to get back into it and really really really need to get my shit together. :) And when I come to a blog and see "shit" in the first post I read, I know I'm in the right place.

  10. Hi Ash! I am really interested in the DietBet and the GYSTS14. Would we be doing the same goals you have listed above or are we creating our own goals? I just want to make sure since I am not sure about the 28/30 days for myself. Although I will support you all the way. :) Thanks

    1. You can make your own goals - This is a way for you to push yourself to get back on track :)
