First off I am super excited to announce that I have been accepted as an Ambassador into the FitFluential family. I first applied to be a Fitfluential Ambassador back in May, I even made a video of myself but I was not accepted at that time. I continued on my health and fitness journey focusing on running and in the process my blog followers have steadily increased. I knew that FitFluential was still a possibility and had seen around the blogosphere that they were once again looking for more Ambassadors, so I reached out to Kelly Olexa and what do you know I am now a Fitfluential Ambassador!!!! I am looking forward to working with this network and all the fantastic individuals involved. As a Fitfluential Ambassador I will be able to further inspire and motivate others to lead the healthiest life possible!!!
I have been participating in Run To The Finish’s Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge to help keep motivated throughout the holiday season and maybe win a prize in the process!!! Week 1 finished on 11/25 and I managed to rack up 33.25 points by running, practicing yoga, Brazil Butt lift workouts and eating 7 servings of fruits/veggies 6/7 days!!! Even though I may have over did it on Thanksgiving (who doesn’t?), I still feel great after completing all my workouts this week!!!
Today was an absolutely gorgeous day…68 degrees, an oddity at the end of November. Chris and I took advantage of this gorgeous day by taking Abby to the park. We ran 3 miles on the fitness path with the jogging stroller, I pushed it for 2 miles and Chris pushed it for the last mile. The run was a little slow but it is hard pushing that stroller…it actually hurts my arms worse than anything else but when Chris took over my run felt so much easier. Here is the breakdown of the run:
Not bad considering we were pushing Abby in the stroller which adds about 60 pounds to the run, plus the air in the jogging stroller tires were low which makes it harder to push. I sped up slightly during the last mile because I was running free!! All in all a great workout!
Abby played on the playground for awhile after our run while we watched and just enjoyed the beautiful day. I hope the whole winter is like this but unfortunately that is just wishful thinking. I hope everyone had a great Saturday!!!!
How did you spend your Saturday?
