Mamavation Monday

This week has been full of win for me.  Let’s see, I worked out every day last week and yesterday I completed my first 5K.  I didn’t run it, I walked it.  I’m still recovering from some health issues but I did it and I’m pretty darned proud of myself.  Lemme tell you, walking in “real life” is very different from walking on the treadmill.  My legs were shaking and my thighs are still feeling the burn a day later but it was worth it (the walk was to raise money for the Children’s Advocacy Center of Scranton, Pennsylvania).  At the end of the run/walk, I saw a lot of people eating bananas ~ those little blue Chiquita stickers were all over the foreheads of little kids (so cute how little people stick everything to themselves). 

I know one of the biggest goals for the Mamavation Sistas is getting enough fruits and vegetables in our diets, so I was happy when I found out about a website called Fruits and Veggies:  More Matters.  The website provides useful tools that tell you how many servings of vegetables you should have per day (did you know that it’s different for each person based on gender, age and activity level?).  There are also recipes and shopping guides, which I found to be incredibly useful…

My goals for this week are to keep working out, eat more fruits and veggies and drink more water.  Yeah, I’m still having trouble with the water… 

Anyway, I hope you all have a happy and healthy week.
