This is my Mamavation post for Monday, August 9, 2010.
I hope everyone had a great week last week! I’m getting bigger and staying active is getting so much HARDER!!! My lower back and hips are aching all the same now and I’ve been ridiculously tired I suspect that my iron levels are becoming low again, so on Thursday I went to the health food and purchased more of the liquid iron I add to my morning juice (Vitamin C increases the absorption of iron). Yep – that’s just another reason to drink some yummy juice!
Despite feeling crummy, I stayed active all week – In summary, here’s what I did:
Monday: 5K Walk with my neighbour
Tuesday: 5K run around the park on my lunch (4min run/1 min walk)
Wednesday: Boot Camp work out with my awesome trainer at lunch
Thursday: 20 min of swimming
Friday: 5K walk/run around the park on my lunch (4min run/1 min walk)
Saturday: Rest day
Sunday: Rest day
I really really think my running days are becoming numbered… But thats ok because this weekend I recorded a 39 min Walk and Tone mp3 that I imported into my iTunes library that leads me through a muscular endurance arm routine while I walk. Combining strength moves with cardio is a great way to burn more calories in a single workout session. Also, building strength and muscle burns more calories at rest! I set my mp3 to dance hits of the 90′s – in the future I hope to set it to some more current dance music.
I spent so much time on it that I thought I’d make it available to you!

OK – now that I got that housekeeping out of the way… here’s my plan for next week:
Monday: I have a course to attend, so I’ll have to miss my regular Boot Camp fitness class, so instead I’ll try to run, or do my Walk and Tone mp3.
Tuesday: Try to run, or do my Walk and Tone mp3.
Wednesday: Work out with my awesome trainer at lunch
Thursday: No workout because I have my first 3rd Trimester midwife appointment!
Friday: Try to run, or do my Walk and Tone mp3.
Saturday: Rest day
Sunday: Kick the family out of the house so I can spend 2-3 hours cleaning…
Fitness Tip of The Day: Track your workouts. Keep a daily or weekly log to track all of your workouts so that you can ensure that you are progressing in the right direction and keeping your body challenged. Track such things as frequency, duration, intensity, weight sizes, sets, reps and how you felt during and after your workouts.
