This is my Mamavation post for Monday, March 21, 2011.
How was your week last week? Did your drink your water? Get your beauty sleep? And eat your 7-8 servings of fruits and veggies? (Remember: fruit and veggies are chock full of fiber!).
This week was March Break (aka Spring Break) for my oldest daughter, Sierra. This means that not only was my mommy/baby bootcamp class cancelled, but I also had to find ways to entertain both her and her sister, Brooke. My kids are like energizer bunnies – they need to stay active otherwise they start fighting. Thankfully I caught a weather break – it was warm enough to go outside! Yay! Sure it was a wee bit muddy out, but I explained to my girls that getting muddy is a sign that you’re having FUN!
This week was all about being a POSITIVE ROLE MODEL! I bought Sierra a new bike because she was in desperate need of one. (Kids grow so fast!). Instead of me motivating her, she motivated ME!
Mommy, can I ride my bike? Mommy, can we go for a run?
She rode, I ran… for a total of 17k last week! We also went for a muddy trip to the park, where I did my bootcamp workout, and we shot this vlog for you where Brooke demonstrates the exercises I do in my workouts:
So here’s a summary of what I we did this past week:
Monday: Ran 4.32K – Sierra rode her bike and I pushed Brooke and Amber in the double jogging stroller
Tuesday: Ran 3.6K – Sierra rode her bike while I pushed Amber in the single jogging stroller
Thursday: Ran 4.2K- Sierra rode her bike while I pushed Amber in the single jogging stroller
Friday: Went to the park with the kids and did a 45min Nike Training Club Workout
Saturday: Ran 5.5K ALONE!!!
Sunday: Rest/play with the kids
