Healthy Choice Challenge Week 5

Well everyone had a few weeks off from our challenge but now we are back in full gear. We took a few weeks off because I was on vacation and then it was the fourth of July and most of us were busy anyway. If you are new to our challenge then go and check out Healthy Choice Challenge Week 1, HCC Week 2, HCC Week 3, and HCC Week 4 to get caught up on what we are doing.
So how was the last challenge? Did you enjoy doing a water activity and cooling off? What activity did you do for our challenge?
In honor of my vacation to Montana and all the time we spent in Glacier, this week will be another out door activity. It is summer after all and the perfect time to be outdoors enjoying this beautiful weather. There are so many things you can do outside, go to the park and walk around, ride a bike, go for a hike, even just playing outside in your own backyard. You can always play some horseshoes, volleyball, shoot some hoops, or a little catch. The options are endless when it comes to outside activities.

Specimen Table from Hating Martha
You could go outside on a nature hike or just in your backyard and collect some goodies to make your own Specimen Table like Janel and her kids did on Hating Martha. I think this would be such a great thing to do if you have little one's. Who doesn't love to collect things when they go outside. We even collected some beautiful rocks in Glacier for Jarr's mom's flower beds. (Don't tell on us because that might be illegal.)

So my challenge for this week is for you to go outside for a hour and do something fun. I have listed many things above but there are also lots of other activities not listed. So go outside and have an adventure!

Don't forget to grab my button on off the side bar if you are participating in this challenge! Also leave a comment so I can come and check out your blog!

What are you going to do this week?

I'm linking up to these parties.


  1. What a fun idea for a challenge! We try to get outside as often as possible for our activities. Since we live on an island it makes it a little easier for us year round ... but it has to be early or late since mid day is just too hot. :)

  2. I don't play horseshoes nearly as much as I would like to. Maybe this will be one of my hours outside this week! I also sat outside with the dogs for 2 hours yesterday, but I don't think sitting and reading magazines counts ;)

  3. You have a great blog!v Lots of fun stuff!
    I am following you from GFC hop! I look forward to reading and exploring more. Stop by and return the follow when you can ;)

  4. Great challenge! It is so hot where we live so being in a swimming pool is the only way we will be outside during the summer!
