Let's get moving and win some Virgin Active gym memberships

Yesterday was a great and jam packed day. Second day back from our awesome holidays, and I am back in my groove with our glorious washing, food prep, cleaning, getting kids school and shoes ready. Seriously? Who gets dressed 14 days before school starts? Our kids! They can't wait to go back to school. Me too, I love the fact they learn over there...... ha ha..... Noah is in Grade 4, Oscar Grade 2, Mietta starts Prep and Zali starts 3 year old Kinda 6hrs per week. So I'll have a little more "extra" time to hang out with y

Fitness - Win a 3 month free gym membership

For all you Instagrammers out there, get onto this competition to win a 3 month free gym membership. I have partnered with Virgin Active and supporting the awesome Cole Classic event in Sydney 1st February 2015. Select your charity and swim or run for a great cause. Virgins' aim is to raise $200,000 for over 800 charities. Even if you don't physically participate, support an Everyday Hero for one of their amazing charities and help make a difference.

How to enter

To win simply repost this image on IG, use the hashtags for your chance to win. Even if you don't have a Virgin Active near you, what an amazing friend you would be gifting this to one of your friends who lives in Melbourne or Sydney. We will announce the 2 lucky Team Dani winners 1st February 2015. Good luck.

There are so many ways for us to keep active this month with amazing events and challenges. My good friend Ky Hurst is hosting his Great Sydney Swim on 26th January 2015, what a way to kick start your Australia Day. Remember when I went there last year? Click here to check out all the action.

If you are wanting something more low key this month, you may want to join Linda from Mums On The Go. She is hosting a 7 Day Self Care Challenge for Mums. A great way to balance motherhood and the other crazy things we need to do in 24 hours! As long as you are connected with like minded people, moving your body and keeping motivated, that's all that matters to me!

Food

Today was super hot (lucky we get to use our pool in Ballarat 4 weeks of the year! ha ha) and the kids kept drinking, eating and I felt I was in the kitchen all day trying to find creative ways to hydrate them. These infused fresh fruit waters work a treat every time. So grab your favourite fruit, herbs and ice to keep hydrated over summer. We also did loads of frozen fruit popsicles and the biggest hit was the yogurt bark (pictured top RHS).
