#Mamavation Monday – Sick Day for Me This Time

Please be sure to continue encouraging these Mamavation  #bookieboo #burpee Challengers it’s Day85!


 For an update please click here  #100DayBurpeeChallenge. 

I’m at home today with all my peeps! I don’t feel good. Something is in my sinuses and my ears. The pressure is horrible.Today I broke out the measuring tape! Sick of the scale and it’s random numbers. The problem is I don’t have a good record of the last time I measured myself. Today I at least have a starting point. I’m pretty sure it is a pretty good loss all the way around. The most I believe is in my hips. I could be wrong. At the end of the post you will see some measurement trackers from RealAge.com. According to that number my waist is still the same as the last time I updated it. Boo! Oh well. I feel too bad to care right now. On a super awesome note…………
Our fearless leader has handed me the reigns for the interview with BOB HARPER with this Friday. Of course it will be posted on Mamavation.com stay tuned.

Thanks to New Balance for sponsoring this week’s Mamavation blogging carnival. This week’s blogging carnival question is: How would you brand your health and wellness lifestyle? How do you want others to know you in this area? 

I want to be known for challenging myself. I want to inspire others through these challenges. I would like to be known as an all around athlete. I love to do many different types of exercises and that is why A Renaissance Woman fits me. I’m a mixed bag of tricks. It’s important to me to surround myself with people who are like minded online as well as offline. I struggle with my eating. As much as I would like to eat clean I have a serious addiction to sugar. I also struggle with stress and there are times when I just turn to auto pilot and grab comfort carbs. What does that tell you? It should tell you that even though I work out a ton I am still a work in progress. I know deep down that I will NOT reach my goals until I slay the eating dragon. Each day we make choices of how we will work out, sleep, eat etc… I just have to make the best choice for me at the moment. I really have to work on that.

Eating out:
Firehouse Subs 10/2, 10/9
Subway 10/15
Miller’s Cafe 10/23

My Work Outs this past week
10/10 Monday –  Rest Day, #100DayBurpeeChallenge
10/11 Tuesday – Crossfit, #100DayBurpeeChallenge
10/12 Wednesday – Crossfit, #100DayBurpeeChallenge

10/15 Saturday – #100DayBurpeeChallenge, Galveston 10K bridge run
10/16 Sunday – #100DayBurpeeChallenge, Rest Day

Scale Reading – 2 pound loss. It should have been 5 because that is what the loss was after running that 10K but I have NOT eaten well since the race. 3 pounds worth?! BAH!!! 

Stress Level – Enormously high! I don’t feel good. My husband is leaving in a few days. I just don’t feel good.

The UP side-A new PR on that 10K that I ran last Saturday. Whoot.

A bit of inspiration for you ladies!

    You are a workout warrior! I'm amazed at all you do… Sounds like you need to kick that scale to the curb. Sorry your hubby is traveling, mine is working nights with only 3 days off for the rest of this month. Makes it hard to have any fun or togetherness. Good luck with making some new tradition with some of the old. Hugs.

    Ugh, this time of year seems to hit all of us here, too. Maybe it is the dust, wood smoke or pollution settling into our valley, but the weather change brings the achey, blahs. I am drinking my tea with lemon and honey and hope you take good care of yourself. We want you back at your behind-kicking best soon!!

    Have a great week and thanks for the continued motivation.
