Mamavation Monday

Well, I am glad to say that I feel much better this week than I did last week. I wound up skipping the entire week of exercising last week. I decided that sleeping in and getting better was more important. I tried my best to tackle the feed a cold mentality that I found myself in. I even went so far as to look it up and find out the origin. From what I read, turns out it is a reference back to the Canterbury Tales by Chaucer and had been loosely translated.

I started the week out by exercising this morning. I will admit, I slept in and only had time for 1/2 hour of exercise. I decided on walking - I'm not sure why, both workouts are of equal length, I just felt less intimidated by walking than The 30 Day Shred. Tomorrow, I plan to get up and do both workouts. Of course, I am staying up later than expected and now I will have a struggle to get out of bed.

I'm excited that I am also going to be an Advocate for Weight Watchers. I am excited by this and though my schedule has been busy and I have missed a few meetings, being invited to be an Advocate is causing me to refocus and I plan to find a meeting that will work for me that I can attend weekly again. More to come on this.

This week's post over at Mamavation is again sponsored by Subway and their Commit to Fit campaign that Jared is participating in.
No compensation was received for this post. By mentioning that Subway is the sponsor on Mamavation, I am entering to win an iPod Shuffle and $10 to iTunes. I am an Advocate for Weight Watchers.

Kudos to you for realizing you needed to rest and gentle to yourself as you got better! I hope this week rewards you for your patience.

Sometimes the rest is so much more important than the exercise. Our bodies can only take so much and if we push them too far beyond their limits, we do more harm than good.
I hope you feel good all this week and that you ease back into your workouts.

Good job on taking care of your body when it needed it most! It can be so hard to let yourself rest when you're motivated to push yourself. Can't wait to hear how this week treats you!

Glad to hear you are feeling better! Taking care of ourselves is something that is so easy to forget to do.

I have to give you props for listening when your body said "ENOUGH" so often we push thru and end up making things worse.

An Advocate for Weight Watchers? That's so exciting for you! That will help to ensure that you remain focused.
