I Took The Aveeno Daily Challenge For A Healthier, Happier Lifestyle #AveenoDailyChallenge #MC #sponsored

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Aveeno. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

As a mom of two very active boys, it's so important to be healthy and prepared for just about anything. This is why I was so excited to take part of the Aveeno Daily Challenge. Last month, I made a pledge to myself and Aveeno to live healthier. This included changing my bad habits, exercising and using Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion. Now that we are at the end of the challenge, I am sitting here reflecting on the past month and everything I have accomplished.
I have to admit that bad habits are hard to break. My worst habit is and was fast food. It's fast, it's easy and it is extremely unhealthy and, during the challenge, I was determined to stop eating as much. The first few days were hard to take, but we stocked our kitchen with fruits, veggies, yogurt and healthy options that were also delicious. That way we weren't tempted to drive into town every afternoon for a treat. We already had them handy at our home. This has been a great change for not only me, but for the entire family.

One of my favorite healthy meals!

In addition to eating healthier, I pledged to exercise at least 30 minutes a days. Luckily, just as this challenge began, the weather became beautiful here in Georgia. We love spending time outdoors and the challenge motivated me get off the couch and become more active with my family. For Easter, we went to Florida with my parents and took advantage of the beautiful sandy beach for daily walks after putting on our Aveeno sunscreen, of course. Plus, we moved into our new house a few months ago and our lake is a little less than a mile from our home, which makes for a great walk with the kids. We've started walking almost every single day now and it's become an expected after-school activity for us. The lake is the perfect place to spend some time because it's beautiful, the boys can feed the ducks and I can continue my exercise with a nice swim. The boys really enjoy our walks and cooling off in the lake, so it is a win-win for my family. The walk back home is the real workout because it is totally uphill and killed my legs the first few times, but now I'm a pro. It feels great to be more active and to keep up with my boys.
Keeping active during the #AveenoDailyChallenge
My last part of the challenge was to use Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion each day. I'm a huge Aveeno fan and have used their products for years. From make-up to baby products, we love Aveeno because their products contain natural ingredients and are great for sensitive skin. Liam has eczema, Josiah has fair skin (he's a redhead), and my husband and I are prone to breakouts. I can't use many lotions because they irritate my skin, but not Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion. Unlike scented lotions that can dry out your skin, Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion is fragrance-free, hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic and contains Active Naturals Colloidal Oatmeal blended with other ingredients that actual work to heal your skin from the inside out. The ingredients soothe skin and are clinically proven to improve the health of skin in only one day. After three weeks, the results are truly amazing. After a long winter of not using lotion daily like I should have, my legs were ashy, my skin was dry and I could tell it was far from healthy. Now? I can wear my shorts without worrying about ashy knees or peeling skin embarrassment. Not only that, but my skin just feels healthy and I swear it has a glow to it now. No wonder Colloidal Oatmeal is the number one natural ingredient recommended by dermatologists! With the hot summer months nearing, I'm definitely keeping my Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion handy because we spend so much time outdoors and it can replenish the moisture in my skin each and every day.

I'm so grateful for what the Aveeno Daily Challenge has done for me and my family. Spending quality time with my boys is so important and now we have something special for us to do together that is not only fun, but healthy! It also keeps us active and outdoors! Do you have a plan to become more healthy over the next few months? Challenge yourself and make it happen because you will feel great with everything you accomplish! A special thanks to Aveeno for challenging me to better myself and to become healthier.

Such a great Challenge to participate in! :D Thankfully the weather has finally broken - we have started going on nightly walks around the neighborhood in an effort to try to Improve and Challenge ourselves!
I did pick up some Aveeno baby products for Peanut! I've heard so much good about how they are with sensitive skin!
