This is my Mamavation post for Monday, August 30, 2010.
How was your week last week? Did your drink your water? Get your beauty sleep? And eat your 7-8 servings of fruits and veggies?
My week was a really good one. I created a meal plan for our dinners this week and stuck with it – which means we only ate fast food 1 time this week! Work was busy – yay! Almost too busy but that’s ok, I LOVE being busy. I worked out with my trainer twice, and did my Walk and Tone mp3 twice – once a male co-worker came with me and did the workout with his hand weights. It was pretty cool ’cause he said his arms were burning afterwards! He’s training for a half-marathon in September, but needed an activity to stay active on an “active rest day”. I had a hard time walking and carrying on a conversation at the pace we were walking.
I’m now at 437km towards my 500km by birth goal. I have 8-10 weeks left, and if I continue the 8-12km/week pace, I’ll get there! Yay!
So here’s this week’s workout “plan”.
Monday: Work out with my awesome trainer at lunch.
Tuesday: Do my Walk and Tone mp3 Workout
Wednesday: Do my Walk and Tone mp3 Workout
Thursday: No workout because I have to use my lunch for my midwife appointment.
Friday: Work out with my awesome trainer at lunch.
Saturday: Rest day.
Sunday: Do my Walk and Tone mp3 Workout
OH! And all of my AWESOME Mamavation Sista’s nominated me, little ol’ me, to be the Sista of the week! Thank you so much ladies! I find the sistahood so motivating – I’ve really had a HUGE turnaround in my personal life since becoming active with mamavation. I feel so alive!! Being active to lead by example has really made this pregnancy the best ever! Normally my back is killing me by this time, and I have no energy, but not this time! I have tons of energy and I’m no where close to gaining the 40-50 lbs I did with my other two. I probably could lay on the couch and do nothing for the next 8-10 weeks and still not gain it. Though, as you may have figured out, that would drive me absolutely insane!
Fitness Tip of The Day: If you are new to running be sure that you have been walking for 30 minutes at least 3 days a week about 3 months before you try to transition to running.
