If you’ve been wondering what’s happened to the next installment of the Love Your Body campaign, wonder no more! An exciting collaboration has been in the works, and it launches very shortly.
We’ve figured out a way to include you in the Love Your Body intention for 2014, and we’re going at it from multiple angles! Art of Seduction has joined forces with Get On the Floor Dance Co., Beach Body Fitness, Hillbilly Chef & Catering, and Chef Fredo for the Love Your Body Healthy Living Six-Week Challenge!
Starting on May 5th, everything begins digitally. Request to join our Facebook group where each company will share how they participate in the Love Your Body challenge from its unique perspective. For example, Argentina and I will report to you on Facebook and the blog about how we’re following the challenge, whether it’s through diet and exercise or when we come up with self-image-specific exercises. Yes, we will give you homework so you can follow along with us and participate in the challenge yourself! But we won’t ever ask you to do anything we aren’t willing to do ourselves, so in this way we can hold each other accountable, cool? Midway through the challenge, we will have a live event you can attend to recharge your progress!
Since I’ve been an enthusiastic culinary student since my years in Italy as an undergrad (and I recently changed my eating lifestyle — more on that in a future blog that will post soon — to what I call “vegan lite”), one of my goals this year is to really exercise experimenting with cooking up some delicious plant-based meals in the kitchen. Also, Anthony and I have been taking ballroom lessons with Get On the Floor since the end of last year, and the instructors at Get On the Floor have recently become reps/partners with Beach Body (the peeps who created P90-X, Insanity, Hip Hop Abs, etc.), so I will be in the unique position of being able to follow the challenge from every angle: self-image (photography), healthy eating, and fitness/dance. And one of the perks of working at Art of Seduction is Argentina and I will finally get to do our own boudoir sessions to celebrate the journey! (We’re going to ask Rose, our retoucher, to get in on it too.)
Details on the event(s) are TBA, but you’ll be informed as soon as I know. In the meantime, join the online Love Your Body Facebook community to receive tips and education (recipes, articles, videos, whatever strikes our fancy!) for healthy living from our area of expertise. Invite your friends and do it together!
There’s no way to lose but to not participate! We’ll be here for you, and hold your hand along the way. Healthy is achieved only through lifestyle tweaks — it’s not always easy, but with accountability partners, you’ll have support to be with you on the journey!
