Mamavation Monday – 10/11/2010

I may have gotten a little haywire with the special effects… but it was fun!  Decided to VLOG instead of BLOG but didn’t really know where I wanted to go with it…

Future vlogs will improve because practice makes perfect!!!


Now for the  HOUSEKEEPING:

Weight last week – 249.5 Weight this week – 248.5

can we all ignore the fact that YES, I still need a pedicure?!

LORI – I LOST A POUND!!!!  1 WHOLE POUND!!!!! **happy dancing burns calories too!***

Exercise schedule from last week:

  • Monday – 30 min Walk ‘N Tone – Cardio & Mamaguns
  • Tuesday – Rested (+ 50 situps at work per Bookieboo’s demand request)
  • Wednesday – Mamaguns while watching GLEE – 35 minutes (+ 50 Jumping Jacks at work per Bookieboo’s demand request)
  • Thursday – 2.04 mile walk/jog at the house – 32 minutes
  • Friday – 3 mile hike at the lake – 53 minutes
  • Saturday – 30 min Walk ‘N Tone – Cardio & Mamaguns & 30 minutes Wii Just Dance
  • Sunday – 2.04 mile walk – (I’ll update the minutes once I’m done this evening) ***Update – slight stomach bug and didn’t want to push it – I still took the dog for a walk but we only did a mile so only 15 minutes but it did round out to a nice 200 minutes for the week!*****

Challenge updates:

Mamaguns Did Strength training for 3 days – at least 30 minutes each.  I’m upping the weight used a bit and adding more reps to push – you are right Steph, I’ve gotten comfortable with my routine and it’s time to push it up a notch!  Thanks for the kick in the rear

Movement Challenge as of the time I’m writing this post, I’ve done 175 minutes this week… no wonder I’m tired 🙂   **Update – Total for the week 200 minutes**

Commit2fit I’ve registered for a 5K on December 11, 2010 and am scared, nervous and excited about this.  Definitely upping the amount of jog vs walk in my walks and building up my endurance.  I haven’t written the post about this yet but that is going to become a regular post for Tuesdays, so it will be up tomorrow.
