Fitness Friday – (06.22.12)

It’s Friday again!!!  This week was the official kickoff for the EcoMom Alliance Sustain Your Self™  Go Green Get Fit Challenge sponsored by Planet Shoes and I have been loving reading the other 30 bloggers’ posts on their goals, challenges and progress.

Did you set any goals? I’m still working toward my goal of completing the Color Run next month.  This week was a roaster in Ohio and I haven’t run in the heat since I was in college in Oklahoma.  I need to relearn how to care for myself while the temperatures are above 90 on such a regular basis.  Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

Personal triumph this week was more of an emotional one.  There was a new mom at class who was frustrated with how hard class went for her.  I felt terrible for her because I know what it feels like to make the effort to come to class and feel like you are the slowest, least fit person in the class world.  I can’t remember her name, but I do know who she came with, so I sent one of those sappy you can do it! sort of emails.  Someone needed to hear it, even if I didn’t get a chance to say it to the new girl.  Who knows, maybe I’ll see her next week and I can say it and give a hug… before class.  Like right when we all get out of our air conditioned cars before class…

This weekend promises to be fairly quiet around our home.  No big plans and I’m excited to try my new armband for my phone so I can “map my run” and listen to music AND be prepared to call 911 should the need arise.  I have been doing well with my caloric intake; I’m considering cutting more wheat out of my diet for the summer.  This week we are experimenting with some new side dishes and they are all either low or no gluten content.  So we’ll see!

Follow along with the challenge on our Facebook page; giveaways from amazing and GREEN companies are upcoming!  Get involved, set those goals and be the strongest, healthiest you YOU can be this summer!
