#LiveLeanEatGreen Challenge Recap

Hi Friends!

As some of you may remember, during the month of October, I did a little photo-a-day challenge called #liveleaneatgreen. Lots of you participated and it was so much fun to see all of your pictures on instagram and twitter each day. Now that it’s November, it’s time to recap my daily photos. I did pretty well and only missed two days at the very end of the challenge. The tasks were a collection of things that included healthy eating, physical activity and mental well-being 🙂
