Welcome to the #MetconsForMoms Workout Challenge
On this page you’ll find everything you need to know to participate! Scroll down for details.
Dates: September 5th-September 4th
Goal: Complete 9 workouts in 10 days
Workouts: I am providing 9 workouts. You can pick and choose which ones you want to do (you can repeat something if you’d like). If you have a set of dumbbells and a jump rope you can participate
- You must complete 9 workouts over 10 days (Sept 5th – Sept 14th)
- In order for them to “count,” you have to share each of the 9 workouts on Instagram:
- Follow @hotandhealthylife on Instagram
- Post your workout (can be the actual workout or a sweaty selfie or quote or anything that relates to the workout, your choice!)
- Use the hashtags #MetconsForMoms and then the corresponding workout day, for example #Day1 if this is your first workout of the challenge. You will hashtag posts all the way up to #Day10
- Tell me your time and/or the # of rounds you completed (more below), the goal being to beat your time/rounds next time, also tell me what weight(s) you used
- You can mix and match any of these workouts below. You don’t have to do them all, just do the ones you want! There’s no order you have to go in.
- Everyone who completes all 9 workouts in the challenge will get placed into a raffle for prizes, and I will also be awarding some of my favorite sharers, too!
- If you have any questions about how to share or how the challenge works, email me [email protected] any time

How To Share On Instagram
This is an Instagram Challenge where I will be looking for your effort and interaction. This is how you and I will keep track of your 9 workouts over the 10-day challenge.
I want to see your challenge workouts! Your photo can be anything from showing your workout itself, to a sweaty selfie to a photo of your gym to your chalked up hands to an InstQuote with an insight you gleaned from the workout. I also want you to describe the workout, what you did (doesn’t have to be super detailed) and how you felt in the description.
If the workout is “for time,” or “AMRAP” meaning see how fast you can complete it or how many rounds you can complete, you will share your time/rounds completed! Optional of course, but it’s a fun way to gage our progress.
This will essentially act as an online training journal for you. THIS IS ALL ABOUT ACCOUNTABILITY. We get to keep one another accountable. There’s something about committing to something publicly and in a bigger way that puts us on the hook! And I love putting myself on the hook — it’s one of my main motivational/productivity strategies.
So tell your friends and family you are doing this. Ask them to do it with you. Show up on Instagram every day excited to share your progress and your consistency. Be an example to those around you and who follow you.
Here are some examples from last year’s challenge
How To #Hashtag Stuff
In the description of the photo, you need to hashtag both #MetconsForMoms and #Day1 (or whatever day # you are currently on) so I can keep track of all your participation. You will go all the way to #Day9. So you are only counting workout days, not all 10 days of the challenge. Got it?
Be Featured with Hot & Healthy Life
In order to be considered for a Hot & Healthy Life feature, be sure to EXPLAIN as much as possible in your descriptions. What workout are you doing? What do you love about it? What’s difficult for you? How does it make you feel? What’s the insight there? How are you helping those following you on IG better better and feel more motivated?
In other words, you can write whatever you want, but if you just hashtag it #MetconsForMoms #Day1 and write nothing else, you’re not really teaching or giving insight or sharing, and it won’t be featured.
You cannot participate for the prizes without having an Instagram account. I am not going to be keeping track of workouts elsewhere. It’s free to set up an account and you can just create one for the challenge if you don’t want to do anything else. Be sure your account is set to Public and not Private/locked if you want me to see your workouts. I can’t see them otherwise. You can always make it private again after the challenge.
At any time, if you have questions about the challenge, you can email me: [email protected]
