This is my Mamavation post for Monday, September 6, 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? (Remember: fruit and veggies are chock full of fiber!).
My week was great – work was super busy, but I still took my lunch hour to exercise because it always helps me to feel less stressed out and better able to focus on my work. I packed my lunches, planned our family dinners etc… Unfortunately I didn’t get in as much walking as I would have liked due to work, a midwife appointment, solo-parenting and visits by out-of-town guests. But alas – that only makes for one baddish week and I’m now at 443km in my 500km by birth goal (still 7-9 weeks to go!).
So here’s a summary of what I accomplished:
Monday: Worked out with my awesome trainer at lunch.
Tuesday: Couldn’t workout at lunch because I was conducting an all day site visit for a tender I’ve issued at work.
Wednesday: Did my Walk and Tone mp3 Workout
Thursday: No workout because I had to use my lunch for my midwife appointment.
Friday: Worked out with my awesome trainer at lunch.
Saturday: Walked 2k with my dog – we would have walked further but the clouds and rain opened up on us.
Do my Walk and Tone mp3 Workout Had unexpected out of town guests, so i spent an hour running around to clean the house before they arrived.
This week I’m off work and staycationing with my family. Apparently I won’t be online much this week… because as I type this my 5 yo, Sierra, is begging to use my laptop to play Starfall.com. I apologize in advance for that. I’ve loaded the house up with healthy, nutritious snacks and food, so I hope that I can resist my hubby’s urging to eat fast food. Being active could also be a challenge – I tend to be an all-or-nothing gal but I got my new EAS Active More Workouts from being last week’s Sista of The Week, so I hope I can kick my hubby off of his TV long enough for me to get a workout or three in.
Congrats to this week’s Sista of the Week: @gretablau from the blog “Middle Aged Jock” (I LOVE her blog name!!). This week’s blogging carnival is sponsored by Chefs Requsted. Chefs Requested is an official sponsor of the Mamavation campaign and sends their perfectly portioned steaks to the Mamavation Moms.
Have a great week everyone!!
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.
