Mamavation Monday: Week 6

It's amazing how one week can be so drastically different from the week before. Last week I was at my breaking point and this week, peace has been restored.
On Tuesday, I completed day 100 of the 100 Day Burpee Challenge. I had such a mix of emotions about it when I finished and put my video online, you can read about it and view the video here. On Wednesday my husband came home from India after 2 long weeks!
On Friday after procrastinating yet again on starting the couch to 5K program, I decided to come up with a workout plan myself that would not only help me out with my upcoming 5K but also "fix" some of my problem areas. I have swayback posture and pretty bad diastasis recti. I did some research about both of these and found some corrective exercises (mostly core) and made my own plan that incorporated those exercises along with a walking & running plan. I put the whole plan on a calendar and yes, I even bought stickers to mark off my days. I mean, who doesn't love stickers? I sort of used the 2 week challenge as my inspiration & i'm really hoping I get results because I had a lot of fun putting it together!
Speaking of the 2 week challenge, although I did get knocked off track with my wretched flu, I am almost done! I'm kind of bummed I didn't finish with everyone else but I am happy that I stuck with it!

Blogging carnival question:
What kind of activities have you done with a pedometer on?
I have mostly gone on walks with my pedometer on. I went jogging a few times and I would love to go on a hike sometime soon with my pedometer!
