Mamavation Monday: First 5K!

Yesterday I ran in my first 5K ever! It was a holiday family fun run/fitness walk, so the whole family came along! It was tough, I am not a runner. I think I like the idea of running more than I actually like running. I'm hoping if I get out and run more that I will enjoy it as much as I think I do, haha! We finished in 41:55, which i'm not really proud of. We did have my 3 year old who was in and out of the stroller a few times, wanting to run and then getting tired, but i'm not really sure my time would have been much better without him there.

I also completed week 1 of the 2 week challenge this week. This has been my favorite of all the challenges! They really did a great job putting it together. Needless to say, I've been pretty sore all week long, but it's that good kinda sore. I feel great!

Oh and I also joined a gym. This is my first ever gym membership!!

How does your family support your weight loss efforts?
I have already lost close to 25 pounds and have been focusing my efforts more on getting into shape now rather than losing more weight. My family has been very supportive. My husband doing the 5K with me yesterday was huge! My mother and two of my girlfriends who had babies recently really encouraged me to join the gym and my sister is always willing to do any sort of outdoor activity with me! I am so thankful to have such a great support system here and of course I always have my mamavation sista's online!

I’m writing this to be entered into a giveaway hosted by Mamavation – a community dedicated to obesity prevention & weight loss for women


  1. Congrats on your fist 5K! You made great time with kiddos in tow. Don't be down on your time. That was probably a good 15 min just doing toddler stuff. I think loving the idea of running is a good start.
    I love how supportive your family is for you. That is great!

  2. W2G on 5K. I honestly fear the idea of 5K, but it so awesome to see YOU DID IT

  3. Congrats on your 5k and your weight loss, it is important to have a great support system, glad to hear that you do. Ps. love your blog's theme. Have a great day!

  4. Awesome job on the 1st 5k! It think it's great that you husband ran it with you, too- and sounds like you have a great support system! WTG!

  5. AHHHH!! Congratulations!! That's so exciting that you finished a 5K WITH the family! Enjoy the gym, and if your gym offers them, take advantage of all the great classes :)

  6. Congratulations on finishing your first 5k! Take that as your time to beat for your next one. The only person you are racing is you :)

  7. This is such a big deal! So proud of you. Keep at it. If you made it through that just consider yourself a runner. It's not about speed it's about the finish. :)

  8. Yay, congratulations on finishing your first 5K!
