Weight:  203…that’s down .6 I think from last week.

I got on the treadmill 3 times last week.  Jogging and then speeding it up to running until I almost roll off the back of the treadmill!  I started the first day at 1/2 mile.  I’ve tried to do a little more each time since then.  Yesterday, which technically isn’t  last week…I got up to .66 mile.  Still trying to do a little at a time so I don’t burn myself out.

If you’re interested in joining the Mamavation Sistahood check out Mamavation TV tonight!

And a BIG congratulations to Shelley of @Momma_Oz for being the Sista of the Week! Give her props on twitter girls!!!! The Sista of the Week will receive an EA SPORTS Active “More Workouts” for the honor.

This week’s blogging carnival is sponsored by SUBWAY. SUBWAY is giving away a gift card for $25 to one lucky winner who mentions the Commit to Fit Campaign and Jared on their Mamavation Monday post. 

In other news:

I had a job interview today.  They had 1 other interview to do today and hopefully I hear good news tomorrow.  It will be full time starting out and may go part time after about a month.  But, right now I can’t be picky.  Our finances are leveling out since moving in with my parents, and technically we could make it without me having a job…but that’s not helping us put money into savings and moving towards our goal of buying a house. 

Living with my parents is going great.  It does get boring with just me and Lexi here by ourselves until around 6:00 every night.  But, I’m making the best of it.  I’m trying to cook, clean, do dishes, laundry, etc…to help pay for the fact that we’re staying here.  It is nice that there is pretty much always someone there to help out with Lexi.  But, at the same time I’m trying not to abuse the fact that there’s always someone there!

    Good luck with the job interview! Let us know how it goes.

    That’s the way to start… a little at a time. I started at a half a mile, and now a 3 mile walk is EASY for me. I like the idea of being on a treadmill, where you know exactly how far you’ve gone, and how far you’ve increased everything.

    Looking forward to hearing more!

  2. I am so proud of you! SLow and steady wins the race… and you are doing exactly what you should be doing. You are getting out there and DOING IT!! That is half the battle!! *hugs*

    ALso, way to go with the 5lb weightloss with Mamavation (and 0.6lbs this week!)

    All that treadmill running is paying off! *wink*

  3. Whoot! Way to work up that speed girl. You Rock for that. Keep challenging yourself. If you feel pain back off and mix it up with something else. Don’t be afraid to make your body to different things.

  4. Keep up the wonderful work! You are definitely moving in the right direction.

    I also wanted to commend you for living with your parents. I think it is wonderful that you are able to have the support to help you meet your family’s goals.
