As you all know, I’ve been having problems sticking to an eating plan. I’m holding steady on the weight though and also have exercised 3X this week, doing C25K training and one biking session. Some updates:
The first game is September 14. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to play due to my shoulder injury (see below), but I plan on attending just to meet everyone and see what the skill levels are and cheer my 40+ sisters on.
I had my first full week of physical therapy, and it seems to be working. They are doing massage, stretches, and exercises with me. I also have to do some exercises at home. We’ll see how it goes this week. I have to remember how bad the pain was before to realize that even though I’m still in pain, it’s not as much as the week before. I will be doing triathlons next year, I hope!
I went to a party yesterday where I saw some women who have done WW in the past and want to get back on that wagon, so we all agreed we would start again on Monday. I think we all need the support in order to have the courage to start again. Looking forward to it. Shout out to Heidi, Sarah and Tami!
Open Sky Shop!!
I have a new Open Sky Shop! Open Sky just takes the blog review to the next logical step, allowing readers to easily purchase the items reviewed from someone they trust. This post is a detailed review of the really cute notebooks I’m selling right now made by a very sweet couple in Oregon. A portion of This Is It! Creations’ sales go to animal welfare groups, and 25% of my portion of sales will go to the Jane Goodall Institute. I plan on doing lots of Christmas shopping through them as well. I’ll be adding more items to my store in the near future as they add items to OpenSky. You can always click on the OpenSky badge in the right column to see my updates. I’ll be reviewing some yoga products, a sporty watch and some other fitness/health related items and hopefully selling those on my OpenSky store too!
There has been tons of talk of one of Mamavation’s sponsors, Earth Footwear, so I’m intrigued. Apparently you burn more calories wearing them because of the way the bottom of the shoe is and how they force you to use your core more for balance while walking. Two pairs will be given away on Monday’s Mamavation TV! Also, can’t wait to hear how the Move It and Lose It ladies did! One of them will win $500 tomorrow night!
This is the last week for Jenny and Lisa. Can’t wait to hear about their progress. I think it’s great that one of the requirements of being a Mamavation mom is that they have to run a 5K by February! Crack that whip, Leah! Yes! I’m also glad that, since Lisa only had 3 weeks as a MM, she can apply again. I’ll be pulling for her to get the full 7 weeks!
For other women who would like to apply to be a Mamavation Mom, go here for details. It’s kind of like the Biggest Loser program and it’s great. The application dates are September 27–October 6.
Congrats to Shawnee Halligan @ShawneeH Sista of the Week!! If you’re interested in joining the Sistahood, check it out here. It’s basically just a group of women who are supporting each other in getting healthy and fit! It was founded by Leah Segedie, who lost 170 pounds!
I’m sure I’m forgetting something, but I’m off to start commenting! I WILL get to every post this week!
What’s going on with you? : )
