Join Our Photo-a-Day Challenge in October

By , SparkPeople Blogger
As you know, we're now on Instagram, the photo and video sharing app! We love how easy Instagram is to use and that it allows us to share fun, healthy tidbits from behind the scenes at SparkPeople every day. While we do love writing about healthy living, it's true that a picture is worth a thousand words.

Over the last few months, we've loved seeing your photos documenting your healthy living habits. From your daily lunch photos to selfies after the gym, we love witnessing the proof that healthy living is possible--and fun!

You know how much SparkPeople likes challenges. We had such fun with our #backontrack consistency challenge in August that we're doing another one--on Instagram this time!

Fall is a time when many people, well, fall off the healthy living wagon. Days are shorter, nights are longer, and the air is colder. Snuggling up on the couch or staying in bed becomes that much more appealing. We're hoping that by getting you excited about all things autumnal. From the first signs of the changing leaves to pumpkin-flavored everything, from fall sports to Halloween costumes, we want proof that you're making every day healthier and happier. Our staff will be sharing their own proof on the SparkPeople Instagram account.

The challenge is simple: Take a look at the graphic below, which shares the day-by-day themes for the challenge, starting with October 1. Share your photos every day (or most days), making sure to tag them #sparkpeople and #fallfavorites to join in the challenge and give us permission to repost them. (And don’t forget to start following us to get the inside scoop on healthy living.)

Sounds interesting. I don't have a working properly camera phone and the one on the pc takes too many times for me to like them. I'll think about it anyway. Great idea! Thank you! :) Report

Can I bypass Instagram and just post to facebook again like #backontrack? I don't want to join instagram since it all winds up on facebook anyway. Report
Instagram looks so cool but I am already so pressed for time and bogged down by media (on-line and otherwise), I just can't add this to the pot. I am trying to cut back, not add to, my already overwhelmed and frantic schedule. Looks neat though! Report
