Mamavation Monday

So last week had its moments of sadness,and awesomeness. First, the sadness. I grew up right near Newtown, CT and found out that one of my high school friends lost his daughter during that tragic event. I am completely devastated over this event, and it will forever be etched into my mind and heart. But I don't want to dwell on that in this post.... so I will go onto the awesomeness. I finished my first marathon. No, it wasn't the time I wanted, but I don't care.... I finished a marathon!!!!!!!! That said, here is my recap for last week. 

Monday - 65 squats, plank, Hip Hop Abs Fat Burning Cardio, Hip Hop Abs Ab blaster, 30 mins walking
Tuesday - 70 squats, plank, 2-3 mile easy run, Hip Hop Abs Ab Sculpting, 30 mins walking
Wednesday - 75 squats, plank, Hip Hop Abs Fat Burning Cardio, 30 mins walking
Thursday - 80 squats, plank,  Hip Hop Abs Ab Sculpting, 30 mins walking
Friday - 85 squats, plank, Hip Hop Abs Fat Burning Cardio, Hip Hop Abs Ab blaster.
Saturday - 30 minutes walking
Sunday - marathon

So this week, I'm going to take it a bit easy, but I still want to get to get something in. Here's my goal:

Monday - rest, stretching
Tuesday - 90 squats (if my legs will handle it), and a nice easy 2-3 mile run, 30 mins walking
Wednesday -  95 squats, 30 mins walking, Hip Hop Abs Cardio
Thursday - 100 squats, 30 mins walking, nice easy 2-3 mile run
Friday - Hip Hop Abs Cardio
Saturday/Sunday - rest one day, maybe a 5 mile run the other day... nothing crazy, just something over 4 miles

That said, these are my goals for the week, but I'm going to listen to my body... if anything feels to much, I'm not doing it :) I don't want to overdo it, but if I can I'm going to :D

How about you? What are your goals for this week?
