Mamavation Monday: Great Heights


I hope everyone had a great week! This was my son’s last week of preschool and they had a cute little graduation ceremony for the kids on Friday. It was really cute, they even got little graduation caps for all the kids!  He will still be in preschool next year but since he goes to a Montessori school, all the different age groups do everything together.

Saturday was my sister’s birthday and she wanted to celebrate by taking a hike.  We decided to go to Bear Mountain which is part of the Appalachian Trail and borders CT, MA and NY.  It is also the highest peak in Connecticut! It was a long, strenuous hike and I’m really proud of myself for doing it! It took about 4.5 hours and I got close to 17,000 steps in!

This was the view from the top, it was breathtaking! You could see all three states!

This week will be spent trying to work out a schedule for us now that my 3 year old will be home all day, I’m hoping that I will still be able to run but I think the majority of it will take place in the gym now.  Which, I think will be good, it has been really humid and it’s been a little hard to breathe when I’m out running!

Here’s where I’m at with the challenges I’m working on:

C25K – finished through week 8 day 3

100 Pushups – finished through week 3 day 2

Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred – finished through week 2 day 1

100 Day Burpee Challengefinished 11/8/11 !

I didn’t get a lot done as far as my challenges go, so my goal this week will be to chip away at my challenges and drink more water.
