My partner Audrey McClelland and I are reviving The Mom Challenge! We started a Facebook group a few years ago to encourage women to start taking care of themselves and really enjoyed working on that project. BUT THEN we both got pregnant and had babies and well… to be honest with you… didn’t keep up with it!

Today is the day that we decided would be DAY 1 of this new journey. It’s important for moms to take care of themselves and I have found myself spinning out of control lately. I thought if I started this back up it would remind me to take care of myself too. It’s a win-win for us all.

So, here’s how it works.

  1. Every Monday, we are going to post a Mom Challenge. A simple task. You will have 7 days to complete it.
  2. After you complete the task. Leave a comment to let us know that you did and check in with us.
  3. If you want to enter the contest we are throwing along with the challenge, you have to take a picture of the challenge and post it on twitter with the hashtag #gettinggorgeous. Include both @audreymclellan and @verasweeney in the tweet. You also must follow both @audreymcclellan and @verasweeney on Twitter to qualify.

Simple enough, right?
