Mamavation – Week 7

A week ago I ran for 20 minutes straight. I know I talked about it before, but it helped me realize what kind of mile stone I reached. A year ago I wasn’t able to run 10 steps without completely loosing my breath. And this week? After running 20 minutes, I felt like I can do just about anything. AND IT FELT GOOD.
  I completed week 6 of C25K. And it included 25 minute run. Yes, I said it – 25 minutes!!!
With the problems Blogger had last week, I am surprised I was able to post anything at all. Please do me a huge favor and stop by my post about our trip to Alabama to help those affected by the tornado – trip to Alabama: tornado relief

The first week of George Foreman Knock out the Fat Weight Loss Challenge was intense. I am proud of how well I did, but my efforts of eating great made me spend lots of time in kitchen. I got some really great pictures from my awesome grill. I am hoping that some prep on Sunday will help me a little during the week

I am one of 10 Brand Ambassadors in the George Foreman Knock out the Fat Weight Loss Challenge. I was sent a George Foreman Grill for my participation in this challenge and will be compensated for my time at the end of the 90 day challenge. HOWEVER, ALL opinions expressed in this post are 100% my own.

    Congrats on the weight loss. Those dinners look so yummy. I have to get a George Foreman. I hope to be able to run someday. I think fear is what's holding me back more than anything.

  9. You're kicking butt!! So so proud of you, woman. I knew this would be an opportunity you'd jump in with both feet on! Like always, you're doing the most that one can with it.
