Fit Mommy Challenge: Week 1


How's it going, you ask?
Hmmm, maybe I should practice looking before I leap (just kidding).
The challenge started on Monday...and yes, I did have chocolate on Sunday, so sue me!

I started the week highly motivated, and doing well. I didn't even have any trouble passing on birthday cake for breakfast (Tuesday was my birthday). As the week wore on, and I started to develop the kiddos' head cold, and started having to stay up later and later to get my exercise in, I lost some of my spunk. Let's just say that I only got my exercise in yesterday because I took the kiddos for a walk early in the day. But, I'm keeping a positive mind and I'm sure I'll shake this cold.

The past 5 days I have:
  • drunk 48 glasses of water (that's 12-16 oz. glasses), 5 cups of tea and 1 medium iced mocha
  • exercised on Wii fit for 68 minutes (including hula hooping, rhythm boxing, stepping, jogging, skiing and yoga) and walked for 20 minutes outside (will exercise for today a little later)
  • consumed no candy, though I did have dessert 4 of those days (birthday cake)
  • upped my fruit and veggie intake
  • remained the same weight
I discovered:
  • it had been 81 days since my last session with Wii Fit
  • I can't jog 2 days in a row without waking in the wee morning hours with a Charley Horse, ouch
Not a bad start. I'll keep you posted.

  1. I'm finally able to make the rounds today! It's been busy day :)

    Thank you for your visit today and encouragement on my Fit Mommy Friday.

    I appreciated your words of wisdom and taking it slow and am amazed at how good I have felt all day long.

  3. Sounds like a pretty good week. Good Job! I can't jog/run w/o charlie horses too. :( Slow and steady is what changes lives. Keep going!

  4. Sounds good. I think my wii person has been sleeping for a long time now.

  5. It's always hard to stay focused around birthdays and holidays. One piece of cake per day is awesome I think. Oh and I probably should check on my Wii person. She might have forgotten how to do anything.

  6. A piece of cake on one's birthday is certainly allowed. ;-) (I'd do it! Hee hee!) I can't run without getting a stitch in my side after a half block down the street, so don't feel bad. :) I think you're off to an excellent start, even with a head cold! (Note to self for future reference: If Susan can exercise while sick, so can I!)

  7. Happy Belated Birthday! Nice job on passing on the cake. Sounds like you had a good week :-) I'm a little late in the game, but joining the challenge too. I'm planning to post my offical commitment on Monday.

  8. Susan, you're doing great! I ate birthday cake last night to celebrate my daughter's birthday--plus I had some desserts earlier in the week! But I am going to eat healthy meals otherwise and get my exercise in!

  11. Good job! I think you should take a day(or more) off if you are ill!

    I don't even want to see how many days it has been since I visited Wii fitland.
