Motivation Monday: Monday, August 30, 2010

This is my Mamavation post for Monday, August 30, 2010.

Hey everyone!

Mamavation Monday

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?

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!

PS – I’ve got some great giveaways for you this week:
1. My Walk & Tone mp3 Workout (Go enter!)
2. Anti Monkey Butt Powder
3. The Rattles “Rattle On” CD

    You looked absolutely gorgeous on Mamavation TV last night. I couldn’t even tell you were preggo! Seriously! By this point in my pregnancy, I was a beached whale, bloaty, uncomfortable, rounder than round! I am so inspired by you to stay active the next time around!

      Thanks Steph!! I feel so much better than my previous pregnancies which is helpful because I solo-parent quite a bit. I couldn’t imagine doing this if I had allowed myself to get as out of shape as I did before.

      The sisterhood has inspired me to continue to take care of myself, so I owe you all a HUGE thank you!

    Hey! First of all, congratulations on being Sista of the Week! You are so awesome! And quite an inspiration with your exercising during pregnancy – I definitely will be following your example with my next pregnancy (assuming there is one).

    I have heard so many good things about your Walk and Tone workout, I will definitely be checking it out! That is so awesome that your male co-worker did it with his handweights and felt the burn! 🙂

    You are such an inspiration! Keep up the awesome work and keep that baby growing strong. I’m looking forward to tweeting with you this week!

    What I love the most about your story is the postpartum depression. Not that you are suffering from it or have, but that the healthy lifestyle you are leading is really helping with your moods. That is just beautiful to me and a great inspiration to others with challenges. XXOO

      OMG! Leah you have no idea how much this has helped my mood. In addition to working full-time with two kids, I also solo-parent… A LOT! Next month hubby is going to Tokyo, New York & LA, so being part of the Mamavation Sistahood has brought so many friends to my
