No it has not been easy and I have been spending some extra quality time with my heating pad! I was worried that my week off would put me back to square one with the running. But thanks to the encouragement of my fellow Mamavation Sisters I went for it and continued where I left off. I did ok the first day and I was definitely back in stride by the second. I still don't like running but I can't argue with the results! 😉 To everyone else training for events and doing this 2 week challenge, keep it up girls!
Scale Victory– I didn't gain back any of the weight I loss while I sick! I was concerned that after I started eating again after being so sick that I would gain those 5lbs back. Thankfully I didn't! Now I need to get back into drinking water before every meal. I have been so hungry I would get about halfway through my meal before I was like oh um yeah about that water….*cough*
This week on Mamavation TV our guest is Rachel Lacy the Bento Box queen. I love bento box lunches! Coming up with new and fun ideas/themes is fun for me (you know you're a mom when…).My kids go to a peanut free school which can make lunch challenging. We are a peanut butter loving household! Pinterest is a great resource and chances are if you have searched for Bento lunches then Rachel's ideas have popped up. Check out her site Following in my Shoes for inspiration.
My favorite go to lunchbox idea: raw veggies with hummus, an apple, whole wheat mini pitas, and laughing cow cheese. What is your favorite healthy kid lunch?
