This is my Mamavation post for Monday, June 21, 2010.
This past week was awesome! I felt great, mostly ate great and stayed active. I have to admit that I did indulge in a kids McNugget Buddy Happy Meal at McDonald’s Thursday night, rather than having my usual salad, and had fries Friday night and ice cream on Saturday… But those were my cheats – all of the rest of the time I ate healthy. Truthfully, I probably could use some extra calories these days, but it should be in the form of more fruits, veggies and proteins instead of junk. I have a regular eating routine that maintains my weight and adjusting it with bigger portion sizes is hard to remember to do. Thankfully the few little kicks I started to feel this have reminded me that this isn’t just about me anymore
Working out… I pretty much followed my workout plan from last week – YAY! I did my Boot Camp Fitness class on Tuesday and Wednesday, Thursday I ran 5K, Saturday I ran 2K (and spent 2 hours cleaning out my hubby’s car for Father’s Day), and on Sunday I ran 5K. Yep – I met my Choose You Healthy Challenge of being active for a minimum of 30 minutes 5 times in a week – woot!
Next week… My workout plan is:
Monday: Work out with my awesome trainer at lunch
Tuesday: 5K walk/run around the park on my lunch
Wednesday: No workout: 20 Week Ultrasound (I’ll have to post the pic afterwards for ya!).
Thursday: 5K walk/run around the park on my lunch
Friday: 5K walk/run around the park on my lunch
Saturday: 5K walk/run around the park on my lunch
Sunday: Rest day/house work day.
How was your week? How did you do in week #3 of the Choose You Challenge? Have you been struggling to be motivated to be active? If so, why don’t you join in with week #4 of the Choose You Healthy Challenge? Just leave a comment on the original challenge post so that I can send you a log form for this week.
Have a great week everyone!
Fitness Tip of The Day: When running errands or shopping, be sure to pack some healthy snacks to have on-hand. Then after you work-up a big appetite, you won’t be tempted to grab something at the mall food court or the fast food restaurant on the way home. Exercise is not enough. You must also include healthy eating habits.
