This was a GREAT week! I’m really glad to be able to finally write those words. My updates:
OMG, go to physical therapy if you have an injury! In 2 weeks the pain has nearly disappeared. We still have a way to go, but (until I decided to play badminton and do too many downward facing dogs) I have been sleeping through the night without taking any kind of pain meds!
I have gotten up to 25 minutes of running doing the Couch to 5K program, with NO INJURIES! This is totally the way to go for me. The 5K I’m doing is on Labor Day, so we’ll see if I can run the whole thing, but I’m feeling pretty good about my progress.
Since I had gained a bunch, my first week back on Weight Watchers I lost 3 pounds!! Total lost since I started in May is 12 pounds! I have been stuck at 12 pounds for a while, but I’m good with this week’s progress. I’m not sure if my final goal is still 124, but I would REALLY like to lose another 10 pounds, which would put me around 127. Fighting weight! I stuck to Weight Watchers very well for about 5 of 7 days. I’m good with that too! The way my week was, I could live like that for life. Being perfect about everything, I couldn’t.

I ran 2-3 times, walked one day and did yoga one day. I will run again today. Feeling great! The yoga DVD was called Vibrational Yoga and I’ll be selling it on my OpenSky store! Awesome DVD. The walk, I took with my husband and son and it was really really nice to do that as a family. We are going to invest in a used jogging stroller so we can do more of that together. Oh, and soccer! Starts on September 14. I won’t be playing this early because of my shoulder, but I’m so excited to be on the roster!

I’m so excited to be working with some of my partners! I’m sipping some Fitness Coffee right now and I’ve got two bags to give away! Look for the giveaway soon! Also, just added the Vibrational Yoga DVD. Rave reviews. I can feel it in my legs today! Great workout. Click here to see my review. You can check out these and the cool notebooks from This Is It! Creations on my OpenSky shop here. I think all of these together or separately would make a great gift for an active woman. Also, I want to make it clear that I am not selling anything in my store that I haven’t checked out and reviewed myself. Look for the Fitness Coffee review later today! I am also waiting on some more yummy samples to review and put on my store!
Have I told you Mamavation Moms how glad I am that we met and how much having your support and supporting you is helping me? Thank you!
Congrats to Janice, @fitcheerldr, sista of the week! She is always very helpful in answering fitness questions, she’s a warrior pregnant woman, and she’s a PPD survivor like I am!
Congrats to @jennydecki and @ljenator for finishing the Mamavation program!! You two rock and you’re both sweet, funny, kick ass ladies whom I’m glad to have met! See you tomorrow night! Have the comedy ready for the after show. Maybe I can get on camera for that!
Oh, I just remembered. I think about 4 of 7 days I drank 60-80 oz. of water! Yay, Me!
OK so tell me. Should I do a vlog right after I finish the 5K next week? Who wants a shout out? I’ll give you one! I swear I will!
