Mamavation Monday- Do It, To It
So this week has been quite interesting! Each day has brought new Mamavation hazing challenges. And I have met each challenge and succeeded, albeit covered in sweat and ready to keel over! But in that time I have lost 4 lbs! I have been drinking between 96-128 oz of water each day. At first it was hard, but I found using a sports bottle with a straw made me drink water more often. sometimes I put a little lemon juice in it and I find I drink it even more quickly.
In the next week I am planning to continue maintaining my water intake, running daily, and doing as much strength training as I can handle. My whole body aches right now, but in a good way. I am enjoying being sore. Tonight, we went to a family gathering and got home later than we had planned. We got the kids to bed and I wanted nothing more than to collapse into my bed, laptop out, TV on. But I did not. I groaned that I was tired and my husband, Bobby, looked at me and asked, "Aren't you going running?" I could have kissed him right then. Having someone encourage you is better than chocolate. Seriously. I am my own worst enemy when it comes to working out. I can talk myself out of a run if there are clouds in the sky. Sore muscles, well surely I need a rest day, or a rest week right?? But having someone else encourage me to keep pushing through it. HUGE.
And I just interrupted the writing of this blog so that I could do 25 burpees. Yeah, so take that internet. I did 25 burpees, what are you doing?
This week my running goal is 20 miles. I am hoping to lose 2 more lbs. And I am going to start tracking my measurements tomorrow. I'd like to see if all this strength training and running is helping to reduce my waistline.
