Mamavation Monday

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? (Remember: fruit and veggies are chock full of fiber!).

This past week was full of it’s usual busy-ness.  I worked, I walked, I played, I walked some more.  I walked 15km this week, bringing my preggo total to: 488.5km!!  I’m almost there!

I had my 34 week Midwife appointment – my blood pressure is back to being low, better than being too high, but also has it’s own set of complications.  Baby is growing well – still measuring a week ahead.  My next appointment is at 36 weeks, then I go weekly until our newest bundle of joy decides it’s time to join the family.  Hubby and I continued to nest and get things ready for the baby – the baby room is all done and my hospital bag is 3/4 of the way packed (the clothes are washed and piled – just not in the bag yet).

The weeks are flying by!  I’m 10 days away from when I gave birth to my oldest daughter!  Yes, she was early – but wow!  There’s a full-sized baby in me!  You know what?  I STILL feel awesome!  The good food, exercise etc… AMAZING!

So amazing that I offered to walk the CIBC Run for the Cure 5K with my cousin in memory of our grandma who died of breast cancer in 2002:

Today we walked 5K together in under an hour – I felt great, except the fact that I had to go washroom by the end of the walk.  An hour is a LONG time when you’re preggo!

So here’s a summary of what I accomplished this week:
Monday: Walked around the mall to buy much needed baby stuff (nursing pads, nursing bras, lasinoh etc…)
Tuesday: Couldn’t workout at lunch because I had my midwife appointment.
Wednesday: Did my Walk and Tone mp3 Workout
Thursday: Did my Walk and Tone mp3 Workout
Friday: Did my Walk and Tone mp3 Workout
Saturday: Rest/clean my house.
Sunday: CIBC Run for the Cure 5k

Fitness Tip of The Day: Exercise at home. You’ll be more inclined to follow-through on your exercise commitment if you don’t have to drive somewhere to do your workout. Plus, you won’t waste any time on driving, parking, the locker room or waiting to use equipment. Working out at home requires very little equipment (even can be equipment-free) and is quite inexpensive.
