Raise your hand if you're a morning person!


Ok, so waking up early is tough for most of us. However, when you make an effort to do so consistently, it's entirely possible to make it a habit—which is a great way to build more fitness and productivity into your day. So, how would you like a little extra boost of motivation to A) Get up in the wee hours, and B) Make strides toward your healthy lifestyle goals at the same time?

We're going to help you do just that with our ''Rise and Shine'' Challenge! We got such a great response from our last ''Streak into Spring'' social challenge that we're starting a 10-day challenge to help motivate you to do something healthy to start your day. Your challenge is a simple, yet effective one. For the first 10 days in April, do one of the following things:

1)    Take time to eat a healthy breakfast in the morning every day


2)    Exercise first thing in the morning every day


3)    Both of the above!

Between April 1 and April 10TweetPin, +1 or comment on our Facebook page using the hashtag #riseandshine to stay accountable and let us know how you're doing. Then, we'll serve up tips and encouragement to keep you headed in the right direction! We will also be posting daily on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+ to check in with your progress using the same #riseandshine hashtag. If you don't use social mediastart a SparkStreak and update your SparkPage status or blog every day to keep yourself accountable! 

There's no better time than RIGHT NOW to build more time into your day to focus on YOU!! This challenge is only 10 days long. You can do anything for 10 days, right?!
