Monday Motivators: I had a baby

I am so committed to meeting my weekly goals that I went and had a baby the day after last week’s post.

This, my friends, is Ollie Catherine. Born 5/25/15 at 2:11 pm. 7 lbs 10 oz, 19.5 inches.

Kari was the lucky winner of the Hilda or Herbert birth poll. Which is fitting because Ollie was born on Kari’s birthday!

Monday Motivators (and all other blogging for that matter) will be temporarily on hold due to lack of material. And by lack of material I mean I have a ton of stuff I want to write about and no good time to write.

Monday Motivators: Just having a baby

 Easy-Labor-Monday-Motivators

Last Week: I met expectations. I walked 3 miles. I did my hip/butt strengthening exercises twice. And I squeezed out 5100 steps/day vs. my goal of 5000. This makes for a really exciting post. I know.

This Week: My only goal for this week is to have a baby. I recognize that this is not a smart goal since I have no actual control over my ability to meet it. Really I’m just giving myself permission to take it as easy as I want to. And have a baby if that’s what happens. Because, you know, nothing says “taking it easy” quite like childbirth.

Monday Motivators: Always a cheater

Last Week: Done, done and done. Just barely, but done. Averaged 5200 steps/day vs. a goal of 5000, plus 3 aerobic miles, plus two rounds of hip/butt strengthening exercises. Okay, okay. I meant to do the second set last night and forgot, so I did them this morning and I’m counting it! Once a cheater, always a cheater I suppose.

This Week: I’m sticking with the same goals as last week.

  1. Walk 3 miles at a moderately aerobic pace.
  2. In addition to the 3 miles I’m going to shoot for 5000 steps/day again.
  3. Two sets of hip/butt strengthening exercises.
