Mamavation Monday–Busy, busy!


This post is sponsored by Simple Self Defense for Women and Mamavation – a community dedicated to obesity prevention & weight loss for women and I’m writing this to be entered into a giveaway.

Happy Monday! I’ve been super busy and I don’t think I even wrote a Mamavation Monday post last week, which is really unlike me.  I really enjoy writing my post each week to keep myself accountable.

Sooo, this will sort of be a re-cap of the past 2 weeks! My “baby” turned 2 on Mother’s Day and we celebrated with a party for him on the Saturday before and had a nice Mother’s Day/Birthday dinner on Sunday. 

I also started working a little bit with my mom, doing some gardening.  It’s been nice to get out in the fresh air and it’s slightly a lot more relaxing than what I had previously been doing – babysitting!

On Thursday I went into NYC for a blogger event at Fitness Magazine.  It was such an awesome day and I had a lot of first-time experiences.  It was my first time going into the city by myself, my first conference-like event and I also participated in my first group fitness class! Oh, and I also received my first ridiculously awesome swag bag! I will be writing all about this fabulous event later this week (probably in about 4 different posts!)

Friday night I went out with some friends for wine and fondue. 

Saturday night was spent watching my older son have a blast at a friends 5th birthday party at a gymnastics center.

And, Sunday we took the kids to the local children’s cabaret theatre for a showing of “The Wizard of Odds.” We all had a blast! (Thanks for the tickets, mom!) 

I’ve also been going to the gym, when I can, and running on the treadmill.  I’ve just been trying to run a mile as fast as I can.  My best time so far was 9:05. I’ll have to see how fast I can do it outside, but I am still waiting for the air to be less pollen-y.

This week I’m going to try to do my pilates DVD a few times and continue with the running, I have a 5K coming up on the 31st!


  1. Yes, you HAVE been busy! Happy 2nd to your "baby." Mine turns 2 this coming Saturday. Good luck on the 5k. :)

  2. Happy Birthday to your baby!!! Sounds like a really busy 2 weeks, but glad you were able to get some exercising in :)

  3. Holy Moly! You've been busy! Way to keep moving, even through the chaos.

  4. Oooh. I did not know you went to the fitness event. Yay! I look forward to your recap.

  5. Wow, you've been busy!! And great job on that time for your mile!

  6. This blog is so nice to me. I will continue to come here again and again. Visit my link as well. Good luck
