Motivation Monday: June 28, 2010

This is my Mamavation post for Monday, June 28, 2010.

Hey everyone!

How was your week? Did you find 30 min to Choose You 5 times last week? Did you eat those fruits and veggies and drink your water?

This week was pretty good for me… Until the weekend hit – oh man I was Bad with a capital “B”. Yes – even I’m not perfect! I ate a ridiculous number of left-over cupcakes and pieces of cake from my daughter’s 5th birthday party Saturday and I didn’t do any of my planned activity. Arrgh – I’m so disgusted in myself – fortunately I’m back to work tomorrow and back to my routine!

Despite my weekend #fail, the rest of last week was awesome! I worked out with my personal trainer on Monday, and ran 15K over the week (5k on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday)- my biggest mileage week since early April! Woot! I drank tons of water and stuck to the lunches I packed. That’s what I love about work – the routine! On Wednesday I had my 20 week Ultrasound – baby is growing well and is actually the right size for it’s gestational age (my last two were always small for gestational age). Baby had legs crossed and wasn’t sharing it’s gender which is fine by us because we didn’t want to find out anyways. The one issue is that baby is in a breech position – my second was like that too but turned on her own about a week before her birth. I did all sorts of crazy acrobatics to get her to turn, so I guess I’m an old pro at it. after two healthy, natural childbirths, I’m ok with whatever this one throws my way, it’s not like I’m planning to have anymore after this.

Next week will be a weird one – Thursday is Canada Day (like a Canadian version of the 4th of July), so I’ll have that off of work, then back to work on Friday, and then off for the weekend. Because of that little hiccup my workout plan is:

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: Rest day/Hangout with the family – swim in the pool if it’s warm enough
Friday: 5K walk/run around the park on my lunch
Saturday: 5K walk/run around my neighbourhood (not spelt wrong – that’s how we spell it in Canada :) )
Sunday: Rest day/house work day.

Oh and I also plan to NOT eat anymore of the cake!

How was your week? Did you accomplish your goals? Have you set your goals for next week? What are they?

PS – Congrats to Jess (aka @all_about_savin) for being this week’s Mamavation Sista of The Week.

Fitness Tip of The Day: Try to take at least 20 minutes to complete a meal. This is how long it takes for your brain to recognize that your stomach is full.
