Mamavation Monday ~ Early Christmas Present

December 12, 2010

My Early Christmas Present from Earth Footwear and Mamavation!

A few weeks ago on Mamavation TV I was one of the lucky mamavation moms to win a free pair of Earth footwear!  I wasn’t sure which style they would send me… I was so excited when I opened the box and found these awesome black leather boots!  They are comfortable and so much fun to wear. The added fitness bonus with these great boots is the 3.7 incline that is naturally built into every pair of Earth Footwear allowing me to burn more calories with every step… making them my new favorite shoes to wear. Thank you Earth Footwear and Mamavation for my early Christmas present!

My healthy living weekly update doesn’t include any additional weight loss or gain.  Another, week of maintenance.  I think there might be a couple of reasons for this.  First, I have been out of my Thyroid medication for little over a week.  I need to get my blood levels checked again.  It’s on my list to do to this week.  Secondly, I really need to get my water intake up to par again.  The accountability that comes with writing these weekly blog posts helps me stay on the course of healthy living during the week.  Accountability together with continually educating myself regarding health and fitness has helped me navigate through this holiday season in a positive way.

These are the work outs I did this week:

Monday – 60 minutes Elliptical

Tuesday – Shred dvd

Wednesday – 60 minutes elliptical, 15 minutes rowing, 30 minutes interval training on the treadmill, sauna

Thursday – Shred dvd

Friday – 60 minutes Elliptical, 15 minutes stair master, sauna

Saturday – Over 5 hours of Christmas shopping!  (walking the malls and stores with Earth footwear)  

I was encouraged with something I read this week about health and fitness… “Healthy living is process.  Physical fitness has no shelf life, you are either gaining physical fitness or losing it.” 

Even though I haven’t lost any weight according to the scale this week… I am happy to say that I am gaining physical fitness in my life! 

Congrats to Jessica  (@jessicafiumara) – she is our Mamavation sista of the week!

Enjoy a healthy life and week!
