Photo challenge- Games

I decided to participate in a photo challenge. The next step was to look for a theme. The theme for January was “Games”. I knew I would have a difficult time taking pictures relating to the theme. I am not usually very athletic and, in January, I prefer to be inside. Instead of passing on the challenge, I made up my mind that this is what challenges are all about. I hoped this theme, while outside of my comfort zone, would help spur creativity.

All pictures were taken with my iPhone.

I decided to do a challenge that starts on Feb 1. It is a exercise and diet challenge from Guru of Abs. I have this listed under the “Games” theme because I think that getting my body in better shape will help me play games this spring and summer.

I had a Scentsy party (product party with concept similar to Tupperware sold by my friend Brittney). We were going to play games at the party. I was the hostess giving the party. This picture is right before it started when I had all the samplers organized. The Scentsy product is all about good smelling fragrances for the home, car, and body. They mainly sell wickless candles that are placed in a warmer. The melted wax diffuses the scent in the air without an open flame. I like them because they are good quality. Hubby likes them because there are no open flames (the firefighter in him will not let me burn candles). My favorite scent is Honeymoon Hideaway.

Hubby built a grill. The ribs that he cooked later were award winning to me. I wish he would enter them into a competition (hence the inclusion in the “Games” category).

My tennis shoes are Saucony brand. I love this brand because all the running shoes that I have bought from this brand have been very comfortable. This shot reflects “Games” because it is getting warm enough for me to shake off the icicles and begin training again for playing tennis in the spring. I am ready. Now that I know my size, I can buy Saucony Women’s Running Shoes on Amazon.

I went ice skating with my friend. While this is not a game, I decided to include any physical activity in my games category. We went skating in Greenville SC. I recommend it because it is a fun activity, especially if you have children. It costs about $10 for skate time and skate rentals. Check the website for skate times because they only have so many sessions each day.

  1. So glad you joined the monthly photo challenge hosted by PJ. One of my favourite things about it is seeing how many different ways the theme is interpreted each month. That skating pic has got me thinking about digging my old skates out from somewhere in the basement and heading over to the neighbourhood outdoor rink.


  2. Welcome to the challenge!

    I think you did a good job with it and like that you were free with the interpretation. In regard to shoes, check out Zappos, too. They have free shipping (both ways) and I’ve found the prices are often better than most places!

    I haven’t been skating in a few years. I’d like to get out and do it at some point, but there aren’t many places around me to do it. I’ll get back to it one of these years!

    Hope you enjoyed the challenge and come back for future months!


  3. What a great interpretation of this months challenge! That is the fun part of participating in this challenge is to see everyone’s personalities in their submissions. My favorite is the picture of the scentcy items.


    • Thanks. I think my the Scentsy picture tie with my running shoes for fave picture. I was not intending to setup the shot that way. As I was looking at pics from the party, I realized that would make a nice inclusion for the theme.

  4. Glad to see I wasn’t the only one using my phone for the photos in the challenge! 🙂
    This challenge is always fun, since everyone interprets the theme so differently. Ice skating is a great thing to do with kids. My daughter took lessons for many years, and I volunteered to be the monitor during open skates so I could skate for free.
    Tennis is one of my favorite sports to play, even though I haven’t played it for a very, very long time. Good luck in your diet and exercise challenge!
