dedicated december!


hi there! thanks for joining in on the dedicated december fun.


dedicated december is a challenge for you to stay active during the month of december. you will get one point/entry for EVERY workout you complete!

for each and every workout you complete in december, leave a comment below. make sure you tell us what the workout was!


  • “today i ran 3 miles in the bitter, bitter cold.”
  • “today i went snowboarding for 7 hours! yeahhh pow day!”
  • “today i went to the gym and completed a lower body workout using free weights.”
  • “today i shoveled snow for 45 minutes. i shoveled my neighbor’s driveway, too!”

make sense?

sorry, but shopping, baking, or chasing your dog/kids because they got ahold of the expensive christmas gift for your mother-on-law does not count as a workout.

oh, and if you are die hard and worked out twice in one day (at separate times) then by all means leave two different comments.

every comment you leave (meaning every workout you log) counts as one entry.

prize for december 1-10 entries: jamie eason livefit trainer supplement stack.
