Well, despite some poor food choices this week, I did manage to lose a pound! I was baking for my son's 3rd birthday party for most of the day Thursday and Friday and kept forgetting take a break and eat something. I'm pretty sure I survived on cake scraps and burnt cookies, whoops!
Today is day 84 of the 100 Day Burpee Challenge and it is such an awesome feeling to be able to do so many burpees! The only bad thing is, the other day I tried to use the "I'm not strong enough to do this." excuse with my husband and he didn't buy it because he sees me doing my burpees every day!
Now, my most exciting thing to report: we signed up for our first 5K! I couldn't be more thrilled. It's a family fun run in December and it ends with a celebration in a Christmas Village! It should be a lot of fun and I hope to make a tradition out of it. I am going to start the Couch to 5K program soon. I'm a little hesitant to start it right now because my husband is leaving on Thursday. For India. For 2 weeks. :(. It's going to be tough to get out and run with my 2 boys and my niece who I have with me on most days. I just don't want to set my self up for failure.
Also, we were watching "How It's Made" the other night and saw that New Balance sneakers are made & assembled in the USA and they are the official shoe for the US Military. How awesome is that? We've been eyeing them whenever we see them in the store and I think we are going to buy some for the 5K. And now that they are working with mamavation? It just makes them more awesome.
As for this weeks question:
How would you brand your health and wellness lifestyle? How do you want others to know you in this area?
I would hope that I am somewhat of an influencer or motivator for a healthy lifestyle. When I believe in something, I tend to talk about it a lot, to everyone. So if I could make even a small healthy change in someone's life, I would be ecstatic!
