This is my Mamavation post for Monday,September 27 , 2010.
How was your week last week? Did you get up and move? Did you 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!).
For the most part my week was uneventful. Well…. except for being nominated into the Top 50 Most Inspirational Healthy Tweeps! I’ve never been nominated into any of those kinds of things despite blogging for 6 yrs and tweeting for 3! I’m so excited! I don’t personally care if I’m in the top 2 – I’d just like to make the top 25 (there’s my competitive nature coming out). The list hasn’t been ranked yet – so could you go and vote for me (@fitcheerldr), *bats eyes* please?
Our week was very busy with our usual activities, as well as school, work, daycare etc.. Total routine – perfect for eating well and getting my walks in. Though I did have to take Friday off of work to stay home with my 3 yo because she had her first cold in well over a year! When I called into work it occurred to me that in the 18 mos I’ve been at my “new” job, that I’ve never taken a day off for the kids! Hmmmm – eating well & exercise? Perhaps that’s helped.
Over the weekend, my in-laws visited and brought us the cradle they had been storing for us. Of course that kicked my nesting into high gear – it’s about time! I seriously hadn’t gotten anything ready! Even my hubby was starting to wonder when I was going to prepare for the new addition. Ive now gotten the car seat liner washed, and the seat installed in my van, baby clothes sorted (not washed yet), and a pile of stuff somewhat packed for the hospital. (I’m still on the fence regarding a homebirth with my midwife, as my hospital birth with a midwife 3 yrs ago was perfect and amazing – I really wouldn’t change a thing about it).
Anyways – here’s a summary of what I accomplished:
Monday: Did my Walk and Tone mp3 Workout
Tuesday: Did my Walk and Tone mp3 Workout with 2 co-workers
Wednesday: Rainy day – walked around the mall next to my work for an hour.
Thursday: Did my Walk and Tone mp3 Workout
Friday: No workout – home with sick 3 yo.
Saturday: Rest/clean my house.
Sunday: Rest/play with the kids
Total walking distance this week = 10.5km
Total walking/running distance this pregnancy = 473.5 km … With 4 weeks of work left, I’m going to reach my goal of 500 km!!
This coming week I have my 34 week midwife appointment – I’m hoping that she says I can keep walking because it’s been amazing for my spirit.

Have a great week everyone!!
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.
