Mamavation Monday - preventing your children from toxins

Well I had a pretty decent week last week. I got in 2 out of my 3 runs, and did my XT. I also lost 1 lb!!! YAY!! Let's hope it stays off. Here's my recap -

Monday - Mash Up Conditioning
Tuesday - 6 mile run
Wednesday - Mash Up Conditioning
Thursday - 3.23 mile run
Friday - Mash Up Conditioning

This week my goal is to continue with Mash Up Conditioning for my XT and get 3 runs in. I also am working on portion control and drinking at least 64 oz of water per day.

Today's Mamavation TV is about minimizing our children's exposure to toxins. This is really near and dear to my heart because I want my children to be healthy and happy, and toxins can put a stop to that. If you're interested in learning more check out Mamavation TV tonight at 9 pm EST, right here.

Sunshine burgers review

I got the pleasure of being able to test out and review sunshine burgers. Sunshine burgers are vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free and USDA organic. All awesome words in my book :) I have tried different non-meat burgers, and honestly haven't been extremely impressed, but I find the sunshine burgers to be actually really good. They have 8 different varieties and all are made with a mixture of vegetables, beans, brown rice or hemp seed. And they are super easy and quick to make. They are already fully cooked, so you are just basically reheating them.

Since, I'm not extremely creative, I didn't make to elaborate of recipes. I made a traditional burger with the black bean southwest burger. Absolutely yummo!!!

And, then I decided to go crazy with the mushroom burger, and do a chili cheese burger on an english muffin. Again, yummo!!!

But they have a ton of recipes on their page, that I plan on trying with some of the other varieties they offer.

This is definitely a great option for me to have quick, healthy lunches since I usually workout during lunch. This way I can get my 1/2 hour workout in, and then make a quick burger and still eat whole.

So now that I have you hooked and ready to run out and buy them.... where do you get them, you wonder? I am lucky enough to have it at my favorite grocery store, but here's the link where you can find yours.

So, what are you waiting for... run, walk, drive, whatever.... go get yours!!! :)

This review was made possible by Sunshine Burgers. The thoughts and views are my own. I was given frozen burgers for my time and effort on this campaign.

Monday - Mash Up Conditioning
Tuesday - 5.5 mile run

Didn't get much down this weekend, I'm still battling this cough and have been feeling a bit rundown. Hoping that I get an upswing really soon. My goals for this week are to continue the Mash Up Conditioning on my XT days and run on Tues, Thurs and one day this weekend.

Monday wrapup - a day late

Last week I did pretty well. I didn't get as many runs in as I would've liked, but I did get a 5 mile run in on Tuesday. The rest of the week the weather didn't cooperate and my treadmill was buried, but I made the best of it and did a different workout.

Monday - Mash up Conditioning Tempo 1
Tuesday - 5 mile run
Wednesday - Mash up Conditioning Tempo 2
Thursday - core exercise
Friday - Mash up Conditioning Tempo 1 & Tempo 3

The Mash up conditioning workout is a new one for me and I really like it. I also am doing a exercise/photo challenge called Move Nourish Believe challenge through Lorna Jane. It's been a lot of fun, and challenged me to get out of my comfort zone a little :) Next week, I am going to continue with the Mash up Conditioning workouts on my XT days and I hope to get 3 runs in :)

How about you? How are your workouts coming?
