Mamavation Monday - 2014 goals

Okay, well last week was pretty lame for me on exercise and eating. I battled a stomach bug on and off all week, so I didn't do much of anything except walk. I'm excited to get back on track this week!!! Here's my recap -

Monday - sick, but deep cleaned the house
Tuesday - nothing
Wednesday - nothing
Thursday - 3 mile walk around zoo, 100 burpees
Friday - 2 mile walk and playing with friend's 2 year old, 100 kick & lunges
Saturday - 20 min power yoga, 75 weighted squats
Sunday - nothing

Tonight's mamavation tv is talking about our 2014 goals, and I have a few for my nutrition and fitness.

1) Get accepted for the mamavation mom campaign
2) Exercise consistently
3) Portion control
4) Change my bad eating habits to nutritious ones.

How about you? What are your goals for 2014? While you're thinking about it, come check out Mamavation tv tonight... you won't be sorry!! :)

Mamavation Monday a couple days late ;)

A few days late, but I wanted to give you a recap of my week..... it was a pretty good one exercise wise. I finished up the #2weekchallenge, and ran my 1/2 marathon. Not my best time, but not my worst and I had a great time running with my sister in law :) It's a beautiful, hilly, challenging course. Ok, so here's the recap for the week -

Monday - Day 8 of #2weekchallenge
Tuesday - Day 9 of #2weekchallenge, 3.4 mile run
Wednesday - Day 10 of #2weekchallenge, bowling
Thursday - Day 11 of #2weekchallenge, 3.4 mile run
Friday - Day 12 of #2weekchallenge
Saturday - Day 13 of #2weekchallenge
Sunday - 1/2 marathon

Oh, and if you missed Mamavation TV on Monday night, you must go and watch the recording. Jarrett Arthur gave us great tips on how to stay safe and keep our kids safe during the holidays. You must check it out :D

Mamavation Monday

Ok, so I really didn't do well with my long runs during this training, so hopefully I will do well next week at my 1/2 marathon. Honestly, I am really not worried about it, I'm just planning on having fun, and how I finish is no big deal. I just know I am going to finish :) I do thank @Mrbookieboo for keeping me motivated with the #2weekchallenge. Here's my recap -

Monday - Day 1 #2weekchallenge
Tuesday - Day 2 #2weekchallenge, 3.1 mile tempo run
Wednesday - Day 3 #2weekchallenge, 3.4 mile run
Thursday - Day 4 #2weekchallenge, 5 mile run
Friday - Day 5 #2weekchallenge
Saturday - Day 6 #2weekchallenge
Sunday - rest day

My goals for this week are to continue with week 2 of the #2weekchallenge, and get in a few short runs to be ready for my 1/2 marathon on Sunday!!! :)

Allied shirts review

I had the pleasure of getting the opportunity to design my own t-shirt through Allied Shirts, and let me tell you it was such a breeze to do. The hardest part of the whole process was trying to decide what I wanted on my shirt. Not only was it easy, the entire process from start to receiving my shirt was very quick. The ordering took no more than 5 minutes, and the website was very user friendly. And then I had my shirt in less than a week. I ordered the short sleeve budget tee, and I am very happy with the quality of the shirt and the quality of the design. The only thing that is slightly wrong with my shirt is the placement of the design, and that was my fault. I placed it a little low when I designed it, but it's still awesome!

Me, totally happy with my shirt!! :)

So, I've kept you in suspense long enough, I know you are dying to know what design I made on my t-shirt......

Of course, I would pick this one as a reminder that of what to do everyday, and of course it's in pink :) 

So, now that you want to design your own awesome shirt, go on over to Allied Shirts and get busy!!

This review was made possible by Allied Shirts. The thoughts and views are my own. I was given a self-designed t-shirt for my time and effort on this campaign.

I did pretty well with not overeating on Thanksgiving and then we went camping this past weekend and it was so much fun. A lot of walking with the pup.... he loves trail walks and runs. How was your Thanksgiving? Did you overeat, or did you behave yourself ;) ?
