Mighty Mommy Monday – Back on Track

It’s Mighty Mommy Monday! Abbie of Farmer’s Daughter and I have decided to challenge you on a weekly basis.  Claim the Mighty Mommy title for yourself — every day, not just Mondays. Every week, we’ll host a link up for you to tell us what you’re doing to take care of your health: workouts, menu plans, how to keep your family active, etc. I’ve set a few goals for 2014, but my biggest is to swim a total of 30 freestyle miles this year AND run a half marathon in October! Join us!


I’m almost dreading the arrival of Monday morning. For the last two weeks, I’ve been teetering on the edge of the bandwagon. Granted it’s been because of travel, but it’s been a bit of a lazy few weeks. I’ve really been good about sticking to clean eating, only a sip of my cousin’s home brewed beer and Starbucks on our drives. I planned like a crazy person so I brought gluten free options and meat. Oh. And it turns out that Canada has a wealth of gluten free baked goods. After an amazing (and when I say amazing, I mean I actually sat and sniffed/inhaled/scarfed down a gf hamburger bun before the burgers were even off the grill!) taste of what is available up there… moving became a desire. Yes. Bread of that caliber would make me want to move… in a stupor of drool.

But I digress. This week, it’s back to focusing on making sure I get enough water, eating regular meals and getting plenty of rest through the night. And I’m shooting for 3 2-mile runs this week. It’s a busy week ahead, so I’m easing back into things with shorter-than-I-had-hoped-to-be runs even this late in the prep game. I’m 15 weeks out from the race and now it’s time to get cracking!

With that in mind, I start tomorrow with this exciting looking upper-body workout and some serious stretching. It’s crazy how stiff you get sitting in a car!
