#NoExcuses Challenge MadLibs with Sweat Pink

Sweat Pink put out this super fun Mad Lib (remember those?) to kick off their #NoExcuse Challenge so of course I'm participating!  


Hey 2015, it’s me, Lauren from Breathe Deeply and Smile
This year I would like to sleep more_simplify my life_, and qualify for the Boston Marathon!.
It would also be super duper awesome if I also did ____spent less time on the interwebs/phone_____ this year. It’s not a resolution, though, just a reminder to myself to try and have the best year yet because life is meant to be lived in the here and now.
The thing I am looking forward to most this year is doing things that make me happy like travelling and cooking!
I’ll use the one thing that truly gets me out of bed in the morning which is_coffee and my 10 alarms to help me get up, get running, (verb) and get after my #NoExcuses 2015.Speaking of excuses (ahem), my very favorite excuse is not wanting to go out in the cold and I have used it to get out of doing exercise and putting actual pants on on more than 100 (number) occasions.I vow to move my body and be more healthy this year even if it means I have to get dressed for the cold and wake up early. 

Even if my alarm clock gets eaten by the dog in the middle of the night, I’ll still try to hit snooze. 
I will stop blaming the boyfriend [ex: kids, dog, husband] for eating the rest of the chocolate everything when everyone knows it was really me.
My jobs [job, hair, car, husband, kids] are not the reason I make excuses. I will show my  job [same as before] who’s boss this year and get my ass-kicking [type of sweaty activity] on
I know that 10 minutes of running [type of workout] is better than binge-watching Netflix. [noun]
I will reward myself by  eating ice cream and getting my nails done. 
#NoExcuses 2015 has just begun and already I am imagining myself a winner. I can’t wait to rock a Action Color Block Capri (article of clothing) from Augusta Active. I can’t wait till my sweaty friends are jealous of how fresh, clean and flawless (adj) I am between workouts with help from ShowerPill body wipes. I can see myself rocking crow pose [yoga pose / workout move] in new Rock the Course Leggings [article of clothing from Actio926] from Actio926 and looking fit and fly while doing it. And of course, I’ll be taking my workouts to the next level and improving my abs [noun] with my new ActivMotion Bar to help me train for my next  half marathon [distance] race with Sasquatch Racing.
Oh, and let’s not forget how amazing my capris [article of clothing] will smell in my / during my race [favorite type of workout] after washing with some WIN Detergent. And lastly, I’ll keep rocking my 2015 with clean eats and nutrition from Beaming with Health!

What are you most looking forward to this year?


  1. Ha ha! This is so fun!! I agree with being offline more this year but ugh it's hard!!

    1. Thanks! It's sad how hard it is to put the phone and computer away!

  2. I also need to spend less time online...my husband keeps telling me so! ;)

    1. My bf says the same if we're trying to watch a movie or something-it's so hard to disconnect sometimes!
