Mamavation Monday

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

In a typical summer fashion, all of the weeks since school let out have been mondaysgraphicwbrown1melding into one.  I can’t seem to remember what I did last week and what I did 3 weeks ago.  Every time I sit down to write my Mamavation Monday post, I really have to think hard about what’s been going on!

Okay, so, this is what I think has been going on in my life for the past week. It’s been unseasonably cold and rainy. I went to the gym to run one time last week & I ended up running 2 miles in just over 17 minutes! I jumped back on the pilates train sometime around Thursday-ish.  I had planned on running outside on Saturday morning but I wasn’t feeling that great.  However, later in the day, I took my kids for a walk to see the new playground being built by The Sandy Ground Project in memory of local hero Victoria Soto.  On the way home my 4-year-old was “too tired to walk” and “felt like he was melting” so I made the walk home with a 40+ pound child on my back while pushing a stroller.  That was awesome.

Oh, and on Wednesday, I took the kids to my older sons kindergarten orientation! I can’t believe he is going to be starting kindergarten in the fall. I’m really excited that it is within walking distance.  I look forward to being able to walk him there every day.


  1. I totally feel you on this whole summer just melding in to one big blur!! Good job on getting out there and getting some movement in :)

  2. You have to love the functional strength-training our littles can give us. Check you out with your sub 9 minute miles. I hope to get back to that speed one day. I know it was also the 6-month point since the shooting and still want to share my heart with your community. That playground is being dedicated to a remarkable human.

  3. This is sometimes also known as trip protection insurance,
    which covers such scenarios as death or illness,
