Workout Wednesdays: Let Me Overwhelm You (Plus, Another #AwesomeInAugust Giveaway Revealed!)

Hello! I am Alexis. Please, let me overwhelm you. Is that rude?

Because I haven't posted in nearly a week, I thought it would be good to remind you about my first Instagram challenge, and introduce you to another sponsored giveaway I'm running as part of the challenge. Man! I've been so busy with making sure that I follow through with #AwesomeInAugust that I forgot to post on the blog! Whoops. I've also been running all over town, literally! I went for my first solo trail run this past weekend (and lost my iPod in the process), and have even been waking up early to go for a run or to the gym (and without an alarm clock, miraculously). Excuses, excuses. I'll do better next week, dear reader, I promise!

Without further ado, prepare to be overwhelmed with giveaways!

In case you have somehow visited this blog, my Instagram, or my twitter page with your eyes closed (how did you land there?!), you know that my #AwesomeInAugust Instagram Challenge is in full swing! Don't fret -- it is not too late to join in on the challenge! You can pick right up with today's challenge (what is your favorite energy booster?), or spend some time catching up with the past few days' photos. Reader's choice!

You can enter to win the grand prize by filling out this Rafflecopter widget, and by following the rules outlined here. A gazillion more thank yous to SIX:02 for sponsoring the grand prizes!

Shout out to Running With SD Mom for adding me to her weekly Wednesday Giveaway Roundup! Check out some of the other great giveaways she has shared in today's post!


Now that you know about the Instagram Challenge, it is time to reveal the first week's giveaway for the challenge!

As I previously stated, today's Instagram post is centered around your favorite energy booster. Earlier this year, I received a sample of ENERGYbits to review, and I absolutely loved them! It's really the only thing I've been able to find that helps give me an extra boost of energy right in the middle of an exhausting volleyball tournament. Yay, ENERGYbits!

Now, one thing you might not know is that ENERGYbits is celebrating their 5th birthday! To help them celebrate, they are giving one lucky reader a sample tin of ENERGYbits. Yay, lucky reader!

To enter this giveaway, you must fill out the Rafflecopter below, and post at least three photos as part of the #AwesomeInAugust Challenge between now and the end of the giveaway (August 13).

I hope to see all of your cool pictures and activities over the coming weeks!

Have you ever done an Instagram challenge? Have you ever started an Instagram challenge and not finished it (I know I'm guilty of this one)? How are you staying #AwesomeInAugust?

  1. I'm staying #awesomeinaugust by participating in this Instagram challenge. I held one last April 2013 but none of my readers really knew how to effectively participate. LOLOL!! Oh well. Hope I win the grand prize! :-) #wowlinkup

    1. Cassandra, you can always go back in and comment on the picture with the hashtags and usernames for whichever challenge you do, that way they can still track it! A few people have forgotten on mine, but they've added them in the comments section. It still counts!

  3. I love that you opened this blog with "let me overwhelm you" that made me smile. And the instagram challenge was an awesome idea the first time I read about it, but I knew I wouldn't hold myself accountable. And look, I haven't done one! #wowlinkup

  4. I would participate but I'm not on Instagram. I'm on all of the other except that one. I entered the giveaway and sent you an email. Visiting from the #wowlinkup
