Thinking Out Loud

It’s Thursday and you know what that means…it’s time for Thinking Out Loud!

– I feel like a broken record but you guys, don’t forget to check out my Charity Auction. 100% of the proceeds will go to support Team For Kids and their mission to create health and fitness programs for school age children across the United States! Plus…who doesn’t want awesome workout swag?


– Why am I pushing so hard to Team For Kids? Childhood obesity statistics are staggering. Did you know: According to the CDC, the percentage of children with obesity in the United States has more than tripled since the 1970s?! Today, about one in five school-aged children (ages 6–19) has obesity. I’m all about teaching children to be healthy NOW so they can carry those skills into adulthood

– I’ve done one whole strength training workout and I am HOOKED. I want to try this medicine ball ab workout next


– I bought organic eggs at the grocery store this past weekend and I feel like I definitely taste a difference…am I crazy?!

– Speaking of eggs: are you a sweet or savory breakfast person? I go back and forth but I’ve been on a major egg sandwich kick recently. Much delicious.

Happy rainy Thursday!

Charity Auction Rules & Logistics!

Today on Thinking Out Loud, my thoughts will be a little less random…they will be dedicated to telling you all about my upcoming charity auction!!!


Here’s what you need to know:

100% of the proceeds will go directly to Team for Kids. Literally every dollar is used to support youth running programs to help combat childhood obesity, promote healthy lifestyles, and support teamwork.

The auction will last two weeks, with bidding closing at 8:00 pm EST on Monday, June 12. 

Each lot will have a minimum bid of $25. The total value of each item will also be posted. 

Once the auction is live, all bidders will need to e-mail me at with the name and number of the lot they wish to bid on and the dollar amount of their bid.

Each lot must be raised by $10, minimum, each time; bids raised by less than $10 will not be accepted.

To place an official bid, you must email me at

If there is a tie for a particular lot, I will draw the involved names from a bowl and choose a random winner.

Once the auction closes, I will email the winners. Once you receive a YOU WON email from me, you will then need to donate the specified amount to my Team for Kids page within 24 hours. I will also contact you regarding your mailing address and/or any other contact information needed for you to receive your items.

The winner has 24 hours to make the online donation. If in that time frame the donation is not made, the next highest bidder will be contacted or the item will go back up for auction.

Some cool things to look forward to:

…and more!!!

Please feel free to comment or email me with any questions you have! I am beyond excited about all of the awesome swag that will be featured in this auction and am looking forward to this new challenge!
