Motivation Monday: February 28, 2011

This is my Mamavation post for Monday, February 28, 2011.

Hey everyone!

Mamavation Monday

Mamavation Monday

How was your week last week? Did your drink your water? Get your beauty sleep? Eat your 7-8 servings of fruits and veggies? (Remember: fruit and veggies are chock full of fiber!) AND sweat for 30-45min everyday?

This week our #Mamavation Blogging carnival is sponsored by Mamavation – Leah is generously giving away HydraCoaches. This is a great reminder to me because I HAVE a HydraCoach, but I got out of the habit of using it… Ruh oh! I better keep drinking my water!

I had a fantastic week – I’ve kept up my commitment to eating 7-8 servings of fruits and veggies, eating more protein, having white carbs only once a day, and SWEATING more.

So here’s a summary of what I accomplished:
Monday: Ran 5.5 K (40min)
Tuesday: 60min Mommy/Baby Bootcamp class
Wednesday: Rest
Thursday: 60min Mommy/Baby Bootcamp class
Friday: Rest
Saturday: 45min Nike Training Club Workout
Sunday: Ran 6.5K (46min)

And now onto my BIG news….. (yes you HAVE to watch the video):

BLOGGING CARNIVAL: This week ‘s blogging carnival is sponsored by Mamavation. Two blogging carnival participants will receive a Hydracoach. Answer the following question in your blog post and link back to the Mamavation website. Link up your posthere to share with others.

Question: How do you encourage your children to contribute to your family ‘s healthy lifestyle?

I encourage my kids to play “Fitness Class” with me, we go to the park – even in the snow! And in tomorrow’s post I will share with you one of our crafts called “What’s Healthy?”.

This post is sponsored by Mamavation and I ‘m writing this to be entered into a giveaway.

Have a great week everyone!!

    You are totally rocking it! Way to go on the super woman workouts! A 5.5K run…awesome!

    So psyched for the pants! That is the best! I remember that feeling when I had my first. I’m on the opposite cycle…my pull on pull offs are fitting a bit snug with the baby now, but I hope I can put myself back into commission and follow in your footsteps when I get the go ahead (probably this fall).

    Thanks for being the awesome cheerleader momma that you are!

    I’ve done a horrible job with the water intake. I’m not a fan of water, so getting myself to drink more than a couple sips of it has been extremely hard. 🙁

    Congrats, however, on your super duper awesome news! You look great, lady!

    I am pretty shocked that you need to use a Hydracoach. I figured you would be all over at least 100 oz. with the working out and new baby. Well, whatever you are doing you are doing it well. You look marvelous!
