How did you do with week one of the Fall Fitness Challenge? Did you move at least 10 minutes a day, or keep up with your other goals?
As a fun way to keep myself on track, I’m teaming up with some great bloggers to bring you a Fall Fitness Challenge! A big thank you to Nora from Adventures of a Mother-Daughter Running Duo! This is just what I needed!

For the past 4 days I’ve kept up my streak of drinking warm lemon water and I love it! I’ve never been a fan of lemon in my water, but I really love it warm in the morning. It’s so soothing and it gives me a moment to get the kiddos fed and still be able to do a little something for myself before getting wrapped up I t he craziness of two little ones in the morning.
That small act each morning helps me set my intentions for the day.
I’ve been getting my 10 minutes a day in as well… It’s not always easy. Everyday activities have been how I’ve been keeping to the plan. Raking leaves with the kiddos has been a big one. I rake them up and they jump through them and spread them around.
Today was definitely not easy…
I’ve been trying to get up early to workout, but the kids beat me to it pretty often. I planned to take a run while the kiddos napped at my parents, and a trip to Kohls for some much-needed pants for the kiddos and short nap times interrupted that plan. I thought maybe I could sneak a run in before dinner, but realized I had left my clothes at my parents’ and I still hadn’t thawed the meat for dinner. Next, I though I could definitely get in a Jillian DVD while the kids played outside, but they chose to stay in. As a last ditch effort, I finally got the kiddos downstairs and got in an hour on the elliptical.
A slow hour, but I moved the whole time while getting some things done instead of sitting on the coach, which is all that matters.
It’s great to have a goal and that little extra push each day.
How did you do this past week?
