This is my Mamavation post for Monday, July 26, 2010.

Hey everyone!

Sorry for being MIA last week. I spent last weekend at a cottage and with all the sun and fun I ended up catching a killer cold that knocked my already tired pregnant butt for a loop. I also was treated to dinner & a movie (Eclipse) by my best friend on Wed as a belated b-day gift, and my other best friend took me to a concert at Fallsview Casino this Saturday. I have some great friends :)

Despite feeling sick & being super busy, I did manage to workout 4 days:

Mon – Boot camp fitness class
Tues – ran 6K
Wed – ran/walk 6K (ran 3.5k then walked due to heat)
Thurs – walked 3k with hand weights
Fri – does an hour of power shopping count as exercise?

While my working out was awesome, my eating sucked. I felt so tired that I resorted to making poor food choices (including a two-hour visit to a buffet on Saturday). I bet my cold would have disappeared faster if I had eaten healthier…

This week life is back to normal – no girls nights out, no cottage visits etc, so I hope to be back on track (and back on Twitter). Hubby even stocked us up on veggies for this week :)

Here’s my workout plans for the week:

Monday: Work out with my awesome trainer at lunch
Tuesday: 5K walk/run around the park on my lunch
Wednesday: Work out with my awesome trainer at lunch
Thursday: 5K walk/run around the park on my lunch
Friday: 5K walk/run around the park on my lunch
Saturday: Rest day
Sunday: Kick the family out of the house so I can spend 2-3 hours cleaning…

Every week brings new obstacles – success depends on how you face those obstacles, right?

Congrats to Rita Ann (aka @lovelyritaann) on being Mamavation Sista of the Week

Fitness Tip of The Day: When working out on cardio equipment (e.g. elliptical trainers), don’t lean heavily on the handrails. This will reduce the amount of calories you burn.
