Love Yo’Self Challenge: Day 1 (Plus, a Giveaway!)

We told you we were changing things up with the Fit Bottomed Challenge and here we go, y’all. A weekly Fit Bottomed Love Yo’Self Challenge that will help you to love yourself (obviously) and, if you’re in a relationship, love yo’ partner, too.

And you can win free stuff! But not just any free stuff — workouts and a book from one of our fave relationship and fitness experts: Gina Guddat! Gina is the author of Love Metabolism: A Guide to Turning Up the Heat in Your Relationship and creator of the DVD fitness series Couples Workouts for Health and Happiness. And not only is she giving away her recent products to one lucky reader, but she actually also designed the daily challenges!

(Told ya it was gonna be cool.)

So, let’s get to today’s free challenge. And come back every day this week for a new feel-good challenge — bookmark this link!

The Day One Love Yo’Self Challenge


Love Yo’Self: Feel your body move more freely by taking a salsa, Zumba, tribal or belly dancing workout today. Letting your body experience various forms of movement will tap into your feminine and challenge it in a new way.


Love Yo’ Partner: Grab your partner in the kitchen, family room or bedroom and lead him or her in a dance. Whether it be a slow romantic embrace to a ballad, a swing dance fling or country line dance. Moving to the rhythm with your partner creates oxytocin, a brain chemical that bonds couples together.
