Mamavation Monday

I know, I’m early, but I just got off work and I am wide awake so I thought I would do my post. This week I have been working on the Buff ‘N Tuff challenge for Mama Guns. I feel in love with weight training back in December ’09. To tell you the truth, a few weeks into weight training I started noticing huge changes in my body. I was burning fat faster, I felt stronger, and some lean muscle decided to show up. Talk about some results. I have quads now, WooHoo! So getting back on topic…here is what I did this week:

Monday: Ate a decent breakfast and did Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones DVD

Tuesday: Swam 65 lengths of the pool at my local YMCA. (Focused on legs)

Wednesday: Cycle class for and hour then a quick round of free weights to work the arms.

Thursday: Body Flow Yoga followed by Pilates Reformer with my trainer (all strength training).

Friday: I did a Water X class at the YMCA. We did a lot of resistance training of the arms and legs during the class. This was a new class for me that my friend wanted to try out. We thought it would be a piece of cake, it seemed easy but we could feel the burn later in the evening in the arms.

Saturday: My hubby and I dug out all of our front pine bushes in our front yard. It was only 5 bushes but they have been there since 1964 and the ground hasn’t been touched since then. Lots of hard shoveling and digging and pulling at the bushes (it was 2hrs worth of work).

Goals for next week: more weights training, hitting the gym 5 days, water, and more veggies. It is going to be a busy week this week as I prepare for a garage sale with my mom and 3 of her friends. I have so much stuff to get out of my house!

Subway is now a sponsor of Mamavation! A big welcome to them! I am super excited since I love Subway! They are my to go to stop when I need a quick bit to eat on the go. Visit them at to find your perfect sandwich.

    Woohoo! good job on the weight training, yoga,pilates,and swimming! I would love to get into a swimming program! I love it and it is such good workout! I heard our local recreation dept has a new pool but it makes no mention of it on their website so I don’t know. I have thought about joining in the future.

    I’ll have to check my YMCA to see if they have that Water X class. Sounds awesome! I need to get back to doing classes there now that the fall schedule is out.
    I’m so glad you’re loving weights! Yahoo!!

    Reading your post I was instantly jealous of your time in the water. I need to get to some laps. I love playing in the water too. Have a great week meeting your goals, weights, gym, and raking in the cash at the yard sale.
